Stained Glass: Rarity -recolor- by Akili-Amethyst Stained Glass: Rarity -recolor- by Akili-Amethyst
:police:STOP! YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO USE THIS IN ANY WAY THAT INVOLVES MONEY. :police:

Now available as a print, or a mug, or coasters! [link]

I got quite a few comments on how my last attempt at Rarity's stained glass was "not colorful enough". So I thought I'd do a recolor just to see what would look nicer.

The "less colorful" scheme was based on the colors in her coat and mane. I also thought it made the overall piece look icy and chique. (That and it reminded me of a grape popsicle, but that's got nothing to do with ponies.)

This was actually my second recolor. The first color scheme I tried here was based on a peacock feather. I thought that a peacock feather fit her personality. BUT that didn't look very good.
Kudos if you can guess the color scheme I ended up choosing for this one!!

Im confused by what you said on your discription. Like you said that the kingdom hearts template is copyright from Square Enix and such but your not exactly copying them by using one idea and reference and then turning it into something different? I guess you could argue that it is al copyrighted anyway as its got both my little pony friendship is magic and kingdom hearts. Im not saying I'm right because I know I'm not. Im saying that this whole thing looks like your idea itself even though it from two different ideas put together. Its beautifully made fan art by the looks of it and its looks professional. I guess your just saying that is owned by Hasbro and Lauren Faust and Square Enix and Walt Disney company.

I'm giving credit to the two original ideas that are combined in my work. People have a cow if I don't.

Hmm... I have the original set as my iPad lock screen, and I like the colors on that.
I'll have to experiment with this one and see which one I like better.

I like both versions! :D

First one matched her personality.

This one matches her talent (It matches her gala dress)

Either way, both are fairly special.

The scheme wouldn't happen to be based off the Cherry Blossom, would it?

That's what I first thought...
