Castle Ruin by Tridgeon Castle Ruin by Tridgeon
the wet paint is still shiny.... but at least I got a pic up with better lighting!

On the way to finding the Elements of Harmony, the girls find the bridge down, and the fog rolling in.... is it worth fixing to get to the Ancient Castle of the Royal Pony Sisters?

Oil on Canvas 9" by 26"
about 15 hours spent on painting

thanks to everyone who watched this on the stream! check out scraps for the process I went through making this

SOLD AT CANTERLOT GARDENS

It was a joke. It's written with capital letters, like a title.

Thank you for bringing this piece with you to Canterlot Gardens. I had been hoping to buy a print of this piece, but I was much happier to take home the original.

you really caught me off guard, just walking up and saying "I want that!" most people buying the paintings had to think a while about it

makes sense that you did your research ahead of time! It was great meeting you and everyone else at the con in person!

Sweet Celestia, that's beautiful!!

As soon as I noticed it said you were a traditional artist, I had to check it out. I *might* be on par with you, but I'm supremely jealous of the quality of your camera. I can't tell you how much nicer the Vinyl Scratch painting looks in person because I couldn't get a good picture. Also, you're definitely faster. Something this pretty would take me 20-25 hours, probably.

Thanks! But im really digging your celestia and luna creation painting, why isit buried deep in your gallery?! Find a nice camera I want that painting on my desktop background asap!
So yes lets be friends! Your style intrigues me look at my WIP' s in my scraps and youll see that your process is the reverse to mine
It makes me want to try to make a painting like your creation work....

I know, I know! It's buried deep because it was (quite literally) the first MLP painting I did and the only thing in years worth showing anyone else. It's been hanging on my wall since and I didn't think to take a new picture of it - from not a camera phone - when I borrowed one from a friend to try to get a good picture of the Vinyl painting. I'm still upset at how poorly that photo turned out, it's still probably the best thing I've done.

Mate, I hate no clue how I did it. It just... happened after a lot of toying around. I was asked to try and do it again with Derpy's Delivery Service. Turned out all right and very Van Gogh-y, but still nowhere near that level.

Oooo! Process images! I love seeing how people's works happen.

I can finally comment! This is great! What I really like is the way the clouds and ropes looks. Nice sense of depth. One thing that feels off is the cliffs edges, they look lost and is actually kinda hard to point out. :)

Well.. That's awesome :D

I'm just curious, do you sell the painting itself or just a picture with high resolution ? :D

I'm currently working on getting a website set up where I'll have all my work for sale, and I'll be selling the original paintings

to sell prints I would need a way to take higher resolution pictures for the larger canvases...

Yep yep! another great paint from Tri. the sky is still cooooool and that wispy fog that got added while i wasn't looking is pretty awesome. the spacing of the hangy support ropes on the bridge doesn't match the rope thickness in perspective now that i'm nitpicking, but the bridge is broken so i'm ok with it. :) great job!

Oh damn, Dashyy, you already finished this piece? That was... fast. Just yesterday you streamed it and now I can witness the final version of it. Awesome. Glad you decided to draw the Ruins after all (it worth to bug you about it), it seems like this is my favorite location from the show, eh.

Is it for the quality of the art, or is it the fact that this was the site of her discovery of true friendship? I'd go for both, myself.
