Derpy Hooves Graffiti


I've painted Derpy again! 'cause I miss her so much x3 ... I painted this in my city, Trelew. Argentina..
I've had some problems with the weather, while I was painting, there was a storm, and I had to stop, I've finished a few hours ago ... I've uploaded lots of photos of the "step by step" on my FB Page!

Hope you like it!!


He pintado a Derpy otra vez! Porque la extrañaba mucho x3 ... Este lo pinté en mi ciudad, Trelew. Argentina..
He tenido ciertos problemas con el clima, mientras pintaba, hubo una tormenta, y tuve que detenerme, lo hé terminado hoy hace algunas horas...
Más fotos del "paso a paso" en mi Pagina en FB!
Para aquellos que no sepan inglés, la frase dice "Solo si te permites el lujo de soñar, algun dia tus sueños podrán hacerse realidad"

Espero que les guste!!

OK, here we go. I havn't done this much so :/ yeah.

First of all, vision: The image seems a little blurry, but perhaps that's just the camara. The wall looks a little dirty, but you can't really help that :3 Otherwise, it is very clear and, despite the picture taken at an angle, the words are very clear.

Next: Originality. It's a very nice concept, especially the words, and the muffin is adorable! But there is one tiny thing: Derpy is extreamly popular, so there must be tons of pictures out there like this. But if you thought it out yourself, well done!

Techunique: Please ignore this bit to a certain extent, as I haven't done graffiti ever.
It is very well drawn, with the shading and the very vector like technique used. I use a tablet, and I would most certainly not be able to draw any MLP FiM character freehand, let alone Derpy, with her eyes and all.
But I'm going to pick out a few little things: You can only see one wing, and if she was in this pose normally, you'd be able to see both. The colour of her eyes seems a little off, and her leg nearest to the viewer seems a little deformed. But that's all!

Impact: This made a huge impact on me. Derpy is such a misunderstood character, especially with the fuss about her name and personality. The mothers who complained about her should see this picture. Derpy isn't meant to be disabled, she's meant to be different. and that is not the same. This artwork shows her in her most perfect form: teaching people to dream, which was the point of Derpy in the first place. Derpinators, we won.

I hope that one day, I will be lucky enough to see this in person. I am adding this to my favs without a doubt. Thank you.

I really like this image. You did a good job incorporating her cutie mark and the quote. And it's out where other people can see it, ordinary people just passing by.
Your artwork is always very impressive, and it's very true to the show models. Whether or not this is a good or bad thing is subjective. I also think that the background is a little plain. It does draw focus to Derpy and the muffin, but I think that it could have had a little more going on just to add a little more depth and interest.
I really think that this is a good piece, and I think that you should do more of this inspirational, quotation-based art.

First of all, vision. Simply stunning. I'm not even a brony/pegasister/whatever and to see this art in my town would be simply amazing. I love how you used very clean lines. The picture itself was very well taken.

Originality- Obviously, you didn't think up Derpy, but you DID a nice job on the idea, and the quote goes amazing with the picture. I love the bubble idea- and having a muffin in one was a very nice touch to add.

Technique- You seem very adjusted to your way of graffiti and also have used the MLP style very well. As I said before, your lines are clean, and the shading that is there is very well done.

I applaud you on this work; it's an overall wonderful graffiti idea made real. Someday I MUST come see this.

While it's a shame to see someone risking legal issues to present their work (not sure what the law is in Argentina, but graffiti is a bit of a legal issue up here in the US) it is good to see it conveying a positive, hopeful message (something that's sadly absent in most of the graffiti in the US).

The scale of the project is impressive, and its color and message stand out in stark contrast to the surroundings. Based on what graffiti is normally seen around my area, this is certainly an original approach to it.

The character is on-model, and the clouds are a nice touch, but it would have been nice to see the swirl technique replicated from the show. The work turned out quite well, especially considering there was a storm that interrupted you.

Overall, it's a solid, inspirational work of art.

@ Legal issues: The way it looks to me, most of the spots chosen for graffiti are sort of no man's lands, if it's similar to Hungary's point of view... State owned walls, bridges, etc that can easily stand a coat of paint / nice piece of art as the state surely won't touch it.

Yeah, I suppose being from the US, or at least my part of it puts a different context to it. I really do love the effect of sprucing up an otherwise barren wall. Actually, it'd be a nice change for some of the ones around here that are currently covered in graffiti of the less-pleasant sort. Art or not, it's still someone else's property and they might see it differently.

Basically, I'd love to see more, but I'd hate to see someone get busted for creating some pretty neat stuff.

This is a rather unusual thing for me to critique, but I figured I'd give it a shot.

First things first- is that /really/ on a wall? Holy. Crap.

Here we have Derpyhooves in a bubble with a rather inspiring quote.
"Only if you allow yourself the luxury of dreaming, someday your dreams can become a reality."

Wow. Did you come up with that yourself? Fantastic. Truly words to live by.

Well, it's fanart, so it can't really be considered the most original thing ever. That said, the whole package is very cool and interesting; graffiti is an art form that is looked down upon - and I've never understood why, assuming it is not offensive. My city has many paintings on the outsides of buildings, and they really help liven up the area.

The technique. Wow. The colours mesh together perfectly, and the image and the quote line up nicely - Derpy being in a bubble is more or less a metaphor for being in a sheltered dream, correct? Even if not, it's still a cool visual. The quote being in a cloud is also a neat idea.

Also, there is a muffin. That's always nice.

In conclusion, this is an awesome piece of work, and I'd be pretty please if I saw it during my commute, and I'm not even an MLP fan; I've never watched the show in my life. This is still really amazing, and props to the artist.

I can't say a lot about this... only because it's AWESOME! Since there needs to be a set amount of words in this I'll just talk about some things in here.

My favorite thing would have to be Derpy in the bubble, it looks great and fits well with her cutie mark. The way Derpy is in that bubble makes it feel like she is in the bubble. The muffin is great too.

You keep the mlp art style really well with the clouds, eyes and over all feel of the painting. The text in the cloud is also great, making the painting feel complete for me.

Finally I must say it's great to be a pegasister (in my case) due to all the great art that comes with it. This is a great painting non the less.

I hope that this is fake.

I'd rather have a giant portrait of Trump on my wall than this Brony/ Pony children crap. 

Do something more productive.
your art is amazing brohoof!

Quiero esto en Mardel. En serio. Es más, sería genial en la diagonal Alberdi (muy famosa por los graffitis que se hacen ahí).
Símplemente hermoso.

Edit: Flashée la calle :XD:
