Crystal iRarity by StreamlinedPegasus Crystal iRarity by StreamlinedPegasus
So yeah. Wow.

I've never done anything like this before... at all. I've got to say though, this is my new personal favorite wallpaper that I've made. I spent a LOT more time on this one, probably 8-10 hours, but I think it was worth it. I learned a lot of new techniques in order to make this wallpaper too, haha. I even used linear perspective on this one! It was frustrating at times, but the end result looks pretty good.

I hope everypony enjoys the new wallpaper, Crystal iRarity!

Heh when you said "planet" and "background", I totally didn't have ponies in mind! Good work.

Crystal Rarity alone is great enough. All this together is pretty great indeed.

Hmm, could you please make a simple minimalistic Crystal Rarity wallpaper with just her and perhaps some minimal, non-distracting details? Such a wallpaper is missing from my collection. Would be very happy to see something like that.

Hmmm, perhaps. I usually just work on the inspiration of the moment, but I have been wanting to try making a more minimalistic wallpaper. I'll have to see. :iconrainbowdashwinkplz:

As a another MLP CrossOver Project Director. I like your Idea not only I Rarity but also space and Crystal Rarity. I think your choice of Space Background fit with Crystal Rarity. That's nice choice.

I really like the texturing effects, not too sure how I feel about that lens flair, but awesome job!

Thank you! I'm currently trying to learn new techniques and experiment, so I'm open to suggestions. However, I am currently stuck with Photoshop CS3 and no Illustrator. So I can't really make my own vectors yet, and I've never tried digital painting.

Ah, not exactly what I meant. I mean, you could forgo the background vector altogether if you wished. Not doing so doesn't detract from the wallpaper as it is though, just think it would be a neat idea.

I'm not really sure what you mean by background vector, haha. Basically the only things in this wallpaper that I did not make or heavily modify are the Rarity and Rainbow Dash vectors. Everything else I either made from scratch or manipulated majorly.

(Sorry if I'm not making sense. I've had a horrible cold for the past two days.)

Oh I see, I had assumed the space platform thing behind Rarity, was premade. If I was wrong, then great work!

Not bad at all. You pulled off the texture, cutie mark & text on the left there pretty good.

The right side does lean pretty heavily on the premade vector work, though. I'd like to see a version of this that is made from near-scratch, bar the Rarity vector.

Not too bad, overall.
