Showdown by Onsaud Showdown by Onsaud
I felt obliged to do something for the "Rarity fighting a giant crab" meme, given that I allegedly inspired it. Lots of thanks go to :iconwhatsapokemon: Whatsapokemon for spreading it and being all around swell. And thanks to :iconajsmack: AJSmack for helping me out and keeping me moving with this. Sorry I didn't end up doing that shading thing you wanted!

God, now that this is over with I don't know what to do. This is a weird feeling... kinda sad, almost.

Oh, and it's a rap battle, in case it wasn't clear.

• A whole bunch of hours in Sketchbook Pro (it's not vectored).

• The crab is meant to be a Sally Lightfoot (Grapsus grapsus)

Its even funnier if you're aware of how "crab" is a pejorative in black/hip-hop culture. :D

So, what should Rarity's rap name be?

Rarity:
I'm Rarity, the element of Generosity.
You must be crazy to mess with me!
Am generous with the pain.
See what happens when you step up to me again!

Giant Crab:
Speak to the claw, you must be the softest pony I ever saw.
You going to hurt me, don't make me laugh.
I have razor sharp claws and will cut you in half!

Rarity:
You think you are OG, some kind of mobster?
Shut your mouth or I will send you back to Red Lobster!
I am not one to bring the hate but I do not get scared of something
that I have seen in my seafood plate.

Giant Crab:
I am in the mood to eat a smore.
You would make a fine white marshmallow whore.
You have slept with many a male pony, get out of here you white furred phony.
You have hooves and lame ass moves.

Looks great.

Awesome drawing. You have such a cool way to show magic. And the crab hat and mic shadow is a clever touch.

Rarity is going to smoke that crab!
(Mostly because the crab can't talk......or can he???)

You spit cheap crap Grapsus
Your chances are cancerous
This 'bitch' will make bisque of your
crisp crimson carapace

This glamorous unicorn dances her verse
Your embarrasing uniform merits a hearse
A rediculous hat, and a heart with a scroll?
My sister makes breakfast more palatable

It's clear you're in need of remedial school:
Appauling apparel, mandibular drool;
A tool who's committed such fashion faux-pas
Just CAN'T blame it all on his "big meaty claws"

I'm famed for my lexical true haute couture;
You seem like a fraud -- agent provocateur
Let me put it to you in Sans Serif for clarity:
Server who's dishin' it out goes by "Rarity"

---

Meh, I could do better. Maybe I'll revisit it later. It was a fun excercise, at least.

Oh my god.

That was... astounding. I actually wrote up a few lines for the crab but they were nowhere near what you just dropped.

Applause.

Oh wow, really? Thanks! I was afraid that people would think of it as, "there goes one of those guys again trying to write raps in the comments."
I mean, there are parts of it I'm not happy with, but it was only a 30-minute rough-draft. I'll be honest, I didn't write it without the aid of Wikipedia and online Thesauri.
You know, I should try to put together an authentic rap battle between Rarity and the Giant Crab. That'll give me something productive to do for about three days.
Honestly, thanks for stimulating my creative juices. Most of the time I just breeze through deviantART and consume all the artwork and move on. I don't know what it is, right time and place perhaps, but something different happened this time. At the risk of sounding fulsome, I owe it to you.

Honestly I haven't seen many people leaving random raps in the comments, but I'll take your word for it!

And you should totally make a full rap! Set it to music, even!

Oh, it's my pleasure. Creativity is one of my favorite things.
