Cannot Express My Delight - Acrylic by tygerbug Cannot Express My Delight - Acrylic by tygerbug
Acrylic paint [Liquitex basics] on a 16x20 Masonite board.

This painting took well over a week to finish, making it easily my most ambitious painting yet.

The models are carladawn as Rainbow Dash and Panda Treats as Fluttershy.

Based partially on a photograph by Andrea Fong Photography.

Some fans saw this painting in person at BroNYCon [January 7th, 2011 in New York], where voice actresses Andrea Libman and Ashleigh Ball signed it.

Characters from My Little Pony Friendship is Magic are copyright Hasbro and created by Lauren Faust.

Dude you painted this?? You're incredibly talented. I, uh, ahem, did a Rarity cosplay once a few years ago... ::whistles::
I do voice a few of the characters in the Everybody Hates Ponies series. (No one hates ponies tho 😌) but Rarity was a fav of mine, tho i didnt get to do her.

Keep up the great work, man.

By the way, any chance you're a Sonic fan or evee used to be? Just wondering. Its weird in the fandoms these days but with the movie coming out next year and Jim freaking Carrey in it, it has potential maybe?

I can't believe this is not originally a photograph. I know well enough that I can trust you when you say it's acrylic but my brain will never believe that fact .___.

To awesome for words. :faint:

At first I thought it was a photograph. But upon closer inspection I surprised about how much detail you put into this

From faraway it looks like a photo and even up close you have to look hard to tell it's not a photo. You my dear sir/madam are made of so much win.
