observational pony study by CosmicUnicorn observational pony study by CosmicUnicorn
I converted a Celestia toy into a still-life study object.
I achieved this by pulling/carving off her mane and tail... filled in the holes/scuffs with wood caulk. Sealed with acrylic gesso. Primed. Then spray-painted white. Plenty of sanding in-between as well (to keep the surface as smooth as possible).

Then I set her against a black background, with one light source coming from above her.

Great exercise (and more interesting than a plain old sphere).


Crappy photo again.
Can't find my camera charger....

9" x 12"
Oil on canvas board.
Paint: mars black, titanium white, naples yellow, ultramarine blue.

Something so simple can be so beautiful. In this unusual, eerie way.

That is great. I've always been jealous of people who can recreate such great lighting on canvas or paper.

This is incredible. Makes me want to do something similar for my art class and one of the dozen-odd pony toys we've got floating around the house.

It seriously makes me entire day when I see a message telling me you've posted new art.
