ponysketch - Starswirl by CosmicUnicorn ponysketch - Starswirl by CosmicUnicorn
Work-in-progress...


Star Swirl the Bearded.
I imagine him as being like a combination of Dumbledore and Leonardo Da Vinci.
A renaissance genius wizard pony.




I'll be painting over the lines, but I liked how they looked with the blocked-in color... so here's a WIP shot.

Sketched in graphite. Painting in CS3. Warming up.
About an hour or so.

I always imagined Starswirl the Bearded to be like Gandalf.

First: I think that this is just imponderably beautiful and i realllllly like the flowing look of the mane. I definitely like your style with the wings too.
2nd: do you have any kind of tips/techniques to help a hopeful artist? I mean if this is a SPEED paint...i mean seriously that is skill. I work with a tablet but now all i need is a few pointers from godly artists such as yourself

i would leave it at this stage, and call it complete. it really captures the idea that he's from a distant past. it also fules the Da Vinci look in my opinion. all in all a wonderful piece.
