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.

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.
