A Date With Mr. Magnet by Dulali A Date With Mr. Magnet by Dulali
One of the odd pairings I like. It isn't that odd, really, as far as personality goes if you think about it. Just don't take this too seriously and get your feathers ruffled if you don't like this pairing, okay? It's just a cartoon. I love cartoons and all but, you know, they're only cartoons.

So I imagine here that Rarity ran into ol' Steve while in Everfree, looking for a rare source of fabric/material for a new outfit she wants to make, and talked to him for a while, and learned that he is lonely and never gets any visitors. So, Rarity, being the generous pony she is, planned a day to visit Mr. Magnet. They meet in a clearing with a lovely, magical river that has a lovely view of Canterlot Castle, and chat about fashion and things. They get along pretty well, and Rarity finally feels that she has found someone that shares the same passion for fashion (I rhymed!) as she does. She is sure that this meeting with the fabulous sea serpent won't be her last.

Anyways, this is my fourth or so pony fanart picture, and I think it's a big improvement from my last one dulali.deviantart.com/art/Poni… Don't you think? Last time I made the mistake of taking away the lines. I did have black lines in that old picture, and they were really thick and didn't work, so I had no choice but to take them away. I should have used the self-trace line style from the start like they do in the show, and that's what I did in this piece ^^ I rather like how it turned out. It doesn't make the subjects in the picture stand out too much, but still puts them forth as the main subjects of the scene. I like that.

I actually considered a story in which he somehow turned into a pony and Rarity helps him through that trial

I also went off the usual form most other people give him, and gave him a river for a cutie mark.

I see him as more of her gay bff than as a romantic interest. There's no way Steve is straight.

Awesome. I can totally get behind the idea that these two would become friends (and maybe more, although given the differences in species, size etc., any possible relationship might have to remain platonic), too.

And the image itself is beautiful. I really like not just Rarity and Steven, but also the background (lovely!) and the details you put in, like Steven's earring. He really IS fabulous, isn't he. :)

Very much hope this won't be your last pony picture!

Dulali Featured By Owner Oct 9, 2013  Student General Artist

Yes! I think the same thing. They do have a lot in common, and from the first episode they really seemed to hit it off.

And thanks, this is one of my better drawings (with actual background lol) and I fashioned up Steve a little, with his bling and whatnot :lol: Cause I figured if they did have a date/meeting whatever, that they would dress nice, due to their fashionable inclinations.

I certainly hope as well that this isn't my last pony pic! I do hope to do more, the characters are indeed fun to draw.

Does anyone know why he's called Steven Magnet? O_o
Reply
:icondulali:
Dulali Featured By Owner Oct 2, 2013  Student General Artist
Yes, the fans named him. Someone was watching the first episode using the audio transcribe program, and when it showed the sea serpent guy talking onscreen, for some odd reason, in the captions below, it read "Steven Magnet," and the fans decided to name him that. It's official now, since Hasbro adopted the name, and it is even on the actual toy now in the Elements of Harmony Friends set. Pretty amazing, huh? The name doesn't make very much sense, but the his name and the story of how he got it is hilarious.

oh no, you beat me to it! I was working on a sketch a few days ago with the two of them having tea... I hope you won't take offense if I still continue it? 

anyway, fantastic picture!! Big fan of the background, and I like that you snuck Canterlot in there.

Of course not! I would love to see you finish your picture. The more of the two, the merrier :lol:

Thanks ^^ Backgrounds arent my favorite thing to do, but I enjoy the effect of this one. Canterlot is a little weird to me to be there, it kind of sticks out too much to me, but I just couldn't leave the mountainside bare.

Yeah, the cute infatuation angle is kinda cool.  Though when some folks take it as far as actual "shipping", it gets a bit yuck/disturbing/wut, imo, heh.

The friendship thing these two have going on here is a great idea.  And I agree that the line style here is definitely more pleasing than the other style with the lines removed entirely.

Heh, it's nice to see "pairings" outside of the fandom's norm.

Not that folks can't enjoy their favorite fan duos/couples, but sometimes it feels like certain ones are a little *too* ingrained in people's minds/too popular to ignore, and it prevents them from considering how well some characters might actually interact with each other (be it platonic or romantic).
