So this is ponies in oil?

Hmm. How would you rate your experience painting in this medium with flat-type colors?

I had a ton of fun painting it! so I guess it went well, though oils are about the only thing I ever paint with

Hmm, cool. What materials do you use? I'm kind of shopping around for things lately.

I use Winton oil colors (a decent brand for the price), and try to get ahold of as many non hues as I can (oxides of cobalt, cadmium, titanium, chromium, not hues thereof). I use heavy duck cotton canvas stretched over beveled 1.5" by .75" poplar boards that I nail together using 3d 1-1/4" nails. My favorite three brushes are my 0 white sable round detailing brush, my 1/4 white sable oval wash, and my 1" one stroke flat brush. I buy odorless mineral spirits from home depot

hope that covers just about everything :D

ooh, dat table in the description. :D I like SoGreatandPowerful's elemental table... for a while I was all like, "e, p, ... u electron orbital?" and then, "Oh! earthpony, pegasus, UNICORN!... that's nerd awesome!"

Anyway, these paints are all awesome in different ways. I like the perspective on this one though... except that far window is a little off. and I love that equation on the board. I don't even know what it is... time to investigate! Very nice.

yea the perspective bends around twilight, if you check the scene it does it in the episode too! I just exaggerated it a bit glad you like the series!

AGH! Chill Twilight! You'll destroy Equestria!

Nice work! Too bad I couldn't see you do Twilight. =/

and this is why you label Rainbow Dash as an unlicensed pony of mass destruction

good thing Celestia was nearby to get this one

I wonder what would've happened if Celestia didn't stop it.

Yes. Magic. Not magnesium. I shall fave, regardless of what my inner-chemist says. Looks incredible all the same. I love how terrified Twilight's parents look.

the potted plant is thinking "oh no not again"

Many have speculated that if we knew exactly why the potted plant had thought that we would a lot more about the nature of magic than we do now.
