Contest Entry - Stars in Our Eyes by StyxLady Contest Entry - Stars in Our Eyes by StyxLady
The grand debut of my lineless painted pony style comes in the form of an entry for :icontsuki-to-hoshi:'s contest! [link]

Shooting Star & Starship

These two lovebirds spent a wonderful date out on the town getting to know each other, and then took to the skies. The night was balmy with a nice little breeze--perfect for flying. As they sailed circles around each other among the twinkling stars, they each felt a special connection with the other, like they had known each other all their lives. That's when they knew their lives would never be the same again.

For more info about Starship and her personality, see her ref: [link]

With my first lineless pony painting comes my first speed paint video! I hope you will check it out (the quality gets much better in part 2).

Part One: [link]
Part Two: [link]

Good luck to everyone who enters the contest! I had a lot of fun with my entry, and I think these two are glorious together. :)

Just finished watching the speed paint videos for this drawing and my goodness, watching these character come to life in those videos was really amazing to see. The finished product is breathtaking.

The two ponies look like they just shared that special moment in space in time where you come face to face with the one you know you'll spend the rest of your life with.

Hiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiick ! Epic drawing ! This new style is totally... awesome ! It's so different ! Amazing ! I have to congrats you for this well done surprise and evolution ! So cool ! Hope you will do more and more drawings like this ! *Totally fan of it and of the background*
But, psssst, you forgot the patches on Starship's muzzle. She's so cute with it !

And now, about the scene, so... woaow... there is so many words that comes to my mind in french and... argh ! I don't know how to translate exactly my feeling in english ! >__<"""
This is beautiful and lyric, like music and poetry in the air ! Such the kind of night to remember ! Did ShootingStar totally forgot to take a look at her chest because he didn't want to know if she was the right one or not ? I think it should be what happened ! :D

In the end, it's both a wonderful work and a very lovely scene. ^^
I'm so glad, happy and honored that you entered this contest ! I truly think that Starship's chances to win ShootingStar's heart are very big ! ;)
But I won't be the only one to chose so... I wish you very good luck ! Right from the heart ! >o<

Oh the freckles? You're right, I didn't put those on...guess I'd better do that and reupload. ^^ I got the lighter muzzle in there but not the freckles. XD

I'm so glad you like it! I left a lot to the imagination, because I think stories are best that way, but I hope the image speaks for itself, and I will definitely be doing more in this style...because I love, love, love it!

Thank you so much for the wonderful comment! Crossing my fingers for these two "star-crossed" lovers. :)

Yes sorry ! Freckles ! Patches wasn't the good word ! My bad ! >o<"""
He he, I'm not the one that loves to point out details but, I couldn't keep quiet about this, because I love her freckles so much ! XD

You're absolutely right. The picture is far enough to let our imagination drives and let us imagine a good and sweet story about it ! ^^ (my sentence is... weiiiird ! Sorry ! XD ) And now I know a little more about Starship, I can imagine a lot and lot of things thanks to this picture !
Yeah ! More more more ! This style is so cool ! ^__^

Let's cross our fingers together !
Oh and, you got work and children, still so much to do and maybe tired, I think Starship will forgive you about the freckles. :D XD

omg do it! how much would it cost?
Reply
:iconstyxlady:
StyxLady Featured By Owner Jul 14, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Hmm, well for 2 ponies according to my commission prices it would be $39 for this style with no background...Lumi is more complex so I'd usually add more for that, but since one of the ponies is my own, I would do it for $35 total. XD

Me too! Haha, of course, I'll be doing them for my own characters, so I'll be using this style either way. XD It comes more naturally to me than the lined style.
