Autumn Blaze and AJ = Happy October

By AquilaTEagle
The latest painting from Daddy (me) and the 5 yo (my daughter . . Candy Light)! On cardboard as usual, she painted the white/green background, then we did AJ and Autumn with very little taping (which is nice)!  She did most of the mane painting, and most of the coat color painting.  I helped with the details and fixed up some of the mistakes.

We came up with a kind of "clay" color for her mane . . a little darker than in the show, but it looks great in real life on the cardboard.  A little muddy in the photo though . . 

All the best, and we wish all of you a very happy October.  What better than to celebrate with everyone's favorite prancing Kirin?  www.youtube.com/watch?v=RAhqxv…

Here is a look at what led up to the final painting.  This took over a half-dozen sessions to complete:

Very nice!  It is great to see the WIP's too.  I love October.  :)

Thank you for noticing!  The Kirin are so much fun (Autumn Blaze in particular).  Do you have a Kirin Plushie?
Vile-Flesh's avatar
I don't have any kirin plushies.  I had in mind to commission a life size standing pattern Cinder Glow, the brown background kirin but I already have a lot of outstanding commissions and I'm not sure who I would approach for that commission.  Egalgay has made some fantastic 16 inch tall kirin plushies.   I have a few plushies from her as a matter of fact.  I sure would love a kirin plushie but the itch to have her be life size would be maddening.

Ah, I see . . you could only currently get a small one, but would want it to be more life-sized . . too bad no one is doing it yet!

"Cause rainbows won't light up the sky unless you let it rain
And candles just won't glow until they're burned..."
No, you can't give up your laughter 'cause you're scared of a little pain,
It's a lesson that the Kirin never learned."

Geez this must be so overdone by now XD. Anyways, very beautiful piece, the characters look extremely accurate! And your daughter is amazing with how she painted the colors on these two. You two together make one awesome artist duo :)
