What?...
You're right, it's not exactly the latest meme but :iconpony-berserker: likes it, or so I hear, and his birthday is coming up, so here it is. Besides, would someone a few fritters short of a full Apple family banquet not try to draw this bit sooner or later? Didn't think so either. =P And yes, this is a genuine meme; I haven't gone off my meds. Don't forget to give PB your best wishes in a few days or better yet, draw him a picture of Lyra, Courage the Cowardly Dog or Rarity fighting a giant crab. I know for a fact that he'd like that very much. ;)

Speaking of whom, what do you have against the poor things anyway, Rarity? Can't turn around without seeing you knocking three kinds of crab cakes out of them. Is it so wrong to be a colossal crustacean?

What I know about the meme's origin: Some time ago several artists were simultaneously commissioned to draw a piece featuring Rarity fighting a giant crab. Before long, a few others picked up the idea on their own and the meme was born. I can't know for certain if that's how it went down, but it sounds plausible enough to me.

Aww sweet, this is awesome!
I love how detailed and angry the crab looks. Rarity herself looks rather vexed as well.
I certainly hope Pony-Berserker likes it, because I certainly do!

Ah hey, he did. And I'm glad to hear you do too! :) It was only once I had finished the pic that I learned about this very fun meme coming from your commissions' idea. Thanks, I hope you don't mind folks randomly picking it up like that. =P

Also thanks for the anatomy tutorials you created. I referred to them frequently while I was learning the basics.

I don't mind it at all, in fact I love that people are interested in it! It's almost taken on a life of its own in fact.

Aww shucks, I'm glad that someone found my tutorials useful :)

....I feel like a nerd. I got all excited and thought you did a FIM version of Captain Crabnasty from G1. But nope, just a giant crab. LOL. It looks very nice, though.

Rarity wielding a giant nutcracker is pretty terrifying! I kind of feel bad for the crab :D Maybe he had it coming.

Świetna robota :D Ten dziadek do orzechów - oryginalny pomysł ;) No i wykonanie oczywiście rewelacyjne. Zwłaszcza świetnie wyszedł ci ten krab - jestem pod wrażeniem tych detali. Ja się obawiam, że gdybym próbował narysować coś takiego, to krab by ledwie kraba przypominał ;p Dlatego na razie się wstrzymuję przed rysowaniem czegoś podobnego.

Swoją drogą, to jest niesprawiedliwy i nierówny pojedynek. Biedny krab nie ma najmniejszych szans.

The version I've heard is that some time ago a few artists have been simultaneously commissioned to draw such a piece. Before long, a few more picked up the idea on their own and a meme was born.
