Truly, nopony is more deserving to be immortalized in gorgeous oil paints. Digital simulations may suffice for lesser ponies, but not the Great and Powerful Trixie!

They should really use that as a story book effect in the next season when she comes back . ..
Otherwise extremely scary-good painting~

amazing. Do you end up selling your paintings? I played with oil paint but I don't have much patience and hate the clean up.
Reply
:icontridgeon:
Tridgeon Featured By Owner Jul 25, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Yes, I do end up selling my paintings, the ones that aren't gifts that is... I haven't really been pushing it because I want to take them all to a convention and sell them there... that and I really enjoy having them hanging in my room :3

I like painting with wet paint, so oils are really perfect, acrylics just dry too quickly the cleanup can be a pain, but I really just clean my brushes between painting sessions, everything else I clean up once in a blue moon. The paint buildup on my pallet starts looking pretty abstract after a couple paintings

I really like the composition - this has some serious digital wallpaper potential :D
The expression and pose is 100% in character.

mmm... to make it a walpaper Id smooth out the background quite a bit, make it brighter too, I think as it is it would be perfect icon camouflage

I sometimes forget that almost everybody else uses a 'desktop' with 'icons' on their computers...
But in any case I just put this on my dual screen and I think even with icons it would be great because of the roughness that comes from the canvas and the oil paint structure. Would be hard to miss anything on that background :D

Oh wow. I'll admit that this pony might be the best pony I've seen from you, Tridgeon. Nice.

And I'm surprised that Trixie didn't DEMAND the downloading of her portrait. :) Is she learning... humility?

thanks Yal! I'm working on my ponies :D

a suggestion from Trixie is still a demand, you don't want to see her when she gets pouty and angry

<-- garylisk from the livestream chat.) It was cool to watch it being painted, and it looks really great. I am particularly fond of the stars on her cape and cap. They really pop out at me.
