Was this a homage to Van Gogh's Starry Night?

You didn't have this one at BronyCon! I was that one guy from the first day who bought 3 of your pastel prints and kept coming back to make you'd mastered the art of rolling them up properly.
I love this one too, I would have bought it if had been there.
Hope you're there again next year :)

This is.. completely beautiful. I LOVE the shading on the night sky. How did you do all the stars, did you use a splatter technique?

My word, that night sky is breathtaking! How did you get that effect with the paint?
Reply
:icontridgeon:
Tridgeon Featured By Owner Aug 9, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
to say it quickly I used really dark richly colored wet paint in the background and flicked the light stars off the end of a brush

I'll have to try this sometime. Does it help to use any particular brush shape?
Reply
:icontridgeon:
Tridgeon Featured By Owner Aug 10, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
depends on what sort of splatter you're going for, really the length and stiffness of the bristles as well as how 'watered' down the paint is are the big defining factors
I also will put a dab of 'watered' down paint on my fingernail and flick the paint on the canvas, or for a really fine spray use a toothbrush

Absolutely beautiful. I am a sucker for the night sky but it is particularly well painted. I would not have known that it was painted if it wasn't for your word that it is and everything else that is painted. It almost looks like a painted over picture of a particularly gorgeous night sky. Canterlot looks very serene and regal against the backdrop of the sky and mountains. Keep up the terrific work!

May I use this as a background for a short fanfic I am writing?

I, of course, will credit you accordingly (and link you), as well as notify you when it will go up on fimfiction. It's just that I'm just going to axe the cover image together from vectors and such.
