I really like this image very much! It may have drawn inspiration from the glass window images we have seen in pony contexts throughout...


This is a very beautiful chalk drawing of Celestia. You got the proportions right and I very much like the posture. The raised right fr...

In which way should I publish craft projects that require more than one image to be fully covered?

6 deviants said Publish collages summarizing several images at a time (looks a bit loaded and therefore less appealing)

Welcome to my Deviantart page :)
My name is Malte, though many call me Mike since Malte turns out to be tricky to pronounce to most native English speakers.
While I got a deviantart account back in 2007 it has been only after my "joining the herd" that I became more active on here and started posting new art more regularly.
I'm somewhat versatile when it comes to art and very much enjoy trying out various forms of art (vectors, soapstone carvings, origami scenes etc.).
I'm also extremely interested in history and turned this interest into a profession by teaching history (and English) at "Volkshochschulen" (education centers for adults).
Please feel heartily invited to look around and comment on my art (constructive criticism is always very welcome and helps me to improve future projects).
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask :)
Interests
Yesterday (January, 12th 2019) was the JanuArt, the once a year art focussed meetup of bronies in Cologne.
During this meetup artists can offer art they made in a silent auction (that is the art is displayed and people can enter bids for the art in lists (with the starting bid) laid out beside the items). I have been refering to this event in some of my most recent posts.
Here are two images showing all the pieces I offered there set up:
Auction01 by Malte279

Auction02 by Malte279

In spite of the fact that fewer (around 40) bronies than usual attended the meetup (mostly because two of us celebrated their bithdays that day and had invited many more of us to their parties) it was a really nice meetup and I sold a good part of the items on display (specifically the Royal sisters slate, the luna box pyrograhpy, the nightmare moon glass, and the shot glasses and cork coasters of Luna, Sunset, Starlight, Lyra, Applejack, Octavia and Twilight.
I also received and accepted offers for the Royal Sisters & Elements of Harmony wallet and the Wonderbolts chest.

All of the items I didn't sell at the auction are now offered for sale for my regular comission price (12 € per working hour + material costs) + wrapping and shipping costs (which vary depending on the volume and weight of the piece in question and the location it needs to be sent to).
In case of the remaining shot glasses with cork coasters this makes for a price of 16 € per set of glass and coaster (for the combination of the glass and the coaster. The blind bag figure included for decoration in the images of the glasses of Celestia and the mane six is not part of this).
The slate engravings of the Mare in the Moon, Rarity, Marble Pie respectively Limestone Pie are 32 € each (they are about 10 cm in diameter).
The light bulbs with the engravings of Pinkie Pie, Fluttershy, Rainbow Dash, and Twilight Sparkle and their Cutie Marks will sell at 35 € per piece. The Twilight Sparkle light bulb has a solar powered LED light inside, while for the other three a battery powered (battery included) led light which can be put like a cork into the top of the light bulbs is included in the price.
The empty Baileys bottles engraved with Nightmare Moon, King Sombra and Tempest Shadow are 54 € a piece.
In case of the pipe cleaner Cutie Mark Crusaders the price for each figure (including their crusader capes but not including any additional decorative elements from their display in the linked animation videos) is 60 €.

Of course I will make sure to cushion any fragile items (glass and slate in particular) as much as possible and mark the parcels as fragile. Given the handling of airmail shipping in particular I cannot give an absolute guarantee that fragile items might not be damaged during the shipping.
If you are interested in any of the items above (or one included in the pictures that I didn't mention individually) please let me know :)

Sunset Shimmer Bowl Animation
I made this bowl as a little Christmas gift for a friend and fellow brony who is also a huge Sunset Shimmer fan. In our group we picked slips with the name of the one we were to prepare a present for without telling each other beforehand (much like they did in "Best Gift ever". I made a little animation showing the bowl from all sides.

Royal Sisters Chest Animation
I pyrographed a wooden chest to the honor of the royal sisters. princess Luna Celestia happy 
I burned the stylyzed version of Celestia and Luna from the first episode on the lid, regular versions of them on the front, large images of their cutie marks and their crowns on the left and right side of the chest and their evil sides Nightmare Moon respectively Daybreaker on the rear side of the chest in addition to some "ornaments". The chest is larger than the last two I made and I think it may well have been the most time consuming pyrographie I have made so far (took more than 12 hours), but I am quite happy with how it turned out :) (Smile) 
Here is a little animation, showing all sides of the chest.
