Title: A furry reverse bow tie :)
Post by: Mirrinian on August 23, 2021, 03:17:01 AM
I finally did a full G1 custom, I typically paint littlest pet shops so a G1 MLP was quite the challenge because it's about 5x the size that I'm used to working with hahah. I'm looking forward to doing some more in the future, it ended up being a lot of fun to paint :)

Yay, you made one! I saw the AJ head you posted in your intro and was looking forward to seeing more ^.^

This is such a fun and unique style! I really love the effect on the rump with the symbols partially blending in, and those eyes are stunning, the sense of depth is striking. 

If you don't mind a tiny piece of critique, maybe for your next one you could take a look at some closeup photos of real pony heads and use that as a reference for the direction of the hairs? I know it's not meant to be a 100% realistic depiction, more like a stuffed animal perhaps, but I kind of miss the cute little twirl on the forehead :lol: Of course you can always take some artistic liberties, trying to make it fully accurate would probably just end up looking too busy and weird.

WOW this is so cool! I love how you paint the symbols, it really looks like part of the fur!

Thank you for the suggestion! I was thinking that as well when I was done with her, the direction of the hairs on the face definitely isn't normal haha, so I'll probably aim to do it differently when I do others.

And thank you everyone :)

She looks fantastic! I love how her symbol looks furry and natural while still clearly being recognisable as bows, you did a great job!

I love this style so much!  It is so unique and the effect is really interesting.  I meant to bid on her, but totally forgot.  Do you take commissions?

Thank you! I don't typically do commissions because they stress me out lol. I do plan to do some more mlp customs sometime soon though!

that's cool
also, I love the eye - is that brown paint instead of black?

This is extremely unique! I don't think I've ever seen anything like this before! When I first saw the picture, I was fully convinced it was fur, then I read the text. Keep it up!!
