My first painting! I know its full of mistakes, and her ear is significantly darker than the rest of her (can't help it, I've run out of white paint to fix it), but it's my first foray into traditional art with ponies! I made this using a vector I had lying around, split the vector file into 9 layers, then printed, cut, and stencil-painted each layer in its own color to achieve the end result. This was done for a friend and is not for sale. Hope you like it!

Media: Acrylic on rough canvas
Size: 8x8"
Time: 2 hours prep, 5 hours painting.

This gives me an impression of some army recruitment poster of "the old days" where you get a face of an officer and planes in the back... Fluttershy's expression just fits that image perfectly :D
Still this is a very good piece of work. Bravo.

This is your first painting? Your a bucking natural!
Have you considered spray painting stencils? That's not to far away from this and I'm sure you would be fantastic at it.

It was actually going to be a spray stencil, but at the art store I found a 6-pack of acrylic paints for $10, and figuring as it woulda been a whole lot cheaper than buying a bunch of $6 spray paint cans, I decided to go w/acrylics. In hindsight, I'm gonna consider investing in sprays, since I quickly ran out of white paint from all my mixing.

I feel that spray paint is well worth it. I have been using the same cans of paint for well over a year.

A 6 pack of acrylics for $10 won't last you very long. They're going to be low quality and have thin coverage. If you're interested in continuing, I'd recommend investing a little bit more in some 5oz tubes from Utrecht (if someone else has experience with similar brands, do speak up!). They're pretty popular among beginning artists and, while they're a bit more expensive than the spray paints, they last a long time. I bought a bunch when I started painting classes and got through two of them (8 assignments each, canvasses larger than 14" x 14") and only went through a tube and a half of white. Spray paints are probably going to be better for stenciling, but if you ever feel the need to break away from that, let me know and I can recommend a good set of colors to start with.

Very cool! Whoever's getting it is quite lucky.
