Pondering Luna Line Art by pyrobob Pondering Luna Line Art by pyrobob
This was a prize in the Benders Vs Bronies competition held on reddit. The winner wanted a line art painting.

Gradients are difficult.

Vector by :icontamalesyatole:

EDIT: Some more info since this became a Daily Deviation.

Don't like it? [link]

The piece is a stencil painting made from a vector from the show. It is acrylic spray paint on 12x12 canvas.

All told, it took about 2 or 3 hours to make.

The photo isn't the best quality because I took it at night with a crappy camera so I could show the person who commissioned the piece the final result. I post my work to DA so that other people can enjoy the work that I do.

I understand that some people don't like MLP, and that is totally fine. I am also more than open to critique of my work. Complaining that a piece of art has a subject matter which you don't like is very childish. I am not making this for anyone but the commissioner and for myself as a project to spend an afternoon relaxing.

Before 10/8, I had heard the term Daily Deviation just once or twice. I had no idea how they were picked or anything. I am glad that I was picked because more people can see my art, which is always cool to me. I am disappointed that so many people are dropping negative comments here because it is not up to some standard they expect in a daily or because of the content.

I do want to thank everyone who has taken the time to look through my gallery and favorite some of my work. Painting is just a hobby for me that I got swept up in. Seeing other people like my work is always cool.

Anyone who thinks this doesn't deserve DD, go suggest something that does. This looks fantastic.

"Vector by :icontamalesyatole:"

This is a picture of a vector.
The REAL vector deserves a DD. Not this.

It's not like he just downloaded the vector and it painted itself, nor that he took a picture of the vector on the screen...

Wow. You did a fantastic job. If you're selling anything else like this please let me know. I have some empty walls that need fill!

I have to ask, were the specks in her mane painted on separately, or were they also sprayed?

Very lovely stencil work here. I've never really been a fan of doing stencils, so I don't think I could have gotten lines anywhere near this smooth without practice, haha.
I wish the gradient were a tad smoother, but I can't really complain, given the medium.

Congrats on the DD~
