Zecora's House Final JPG 1200
Zecora at her home in the Everfree Forest.

This was based off two screenshots from the show and combined for recoloring.

You can purchase a digital download of the 9000x6000 file (intended to be printed at 30x20 inches or smaller) here:

www.etsy.com/listing/526352707…

Also in the store you will find an option to buy it as a print in various sizes if you do not have a printer in your area.

Hello, everybody!

Thanks to all my new watchers!  I just wanted to share some important information and some fun links with you.

First off, as you can see I have recently been working on screenshot recolors.  I take screenshots from a show (currently My Little Pony), combine them into one image, and repaint them in my own style.  I started doing this because I wanted a show-exact painting of Fluttershy's house for my living room, and then decided to expand this to other pony houses and eventually, other scenes and possibly even other shows.  Each painting takes about 40 hours to complete and as you can see, nothing is left of the original screenshot other than the exactness of the dimensions.  Some people may consider it tracing, and if you want to do so that is 100% up to you and I do not take it negatively.  There are hundreds upon hundreds of exceptionally worthy artists out there working on their own thing (and yes, I CAN  and DO draw completely unique works as well). The preciseness of this process is what is working for me right now as an artist, and I am having so much fun with it.  :)

If you would like to see WIPs, correspond with me regularly, make requests, discuss commissions, and that sort of thing, I am mostly on Facebook.  DA is being a pain about links right now so look for Kim Fish, with an icon of a black kitten head.  My art page on Facebook is Art For Ponies, and my Esty store is ArtForPonies (no spaces).

Thanks again for looking, and a new piece is coming in just a few days!
Golden Oak Library Final JPG 1200
How else to draw Twilight Sparkle other than at twilight?

This is available as a print and as a LARGE digital download (9000x6000) at my Etsy shop at www.etsy.com/shop/ArtForPonies…

This is a screenshot recolor of approximately 5 screenshots as well as the original concept art from the Art of Equestria book.

Commission information:

Commission rates start at $25 for one character, simple background, and go up by complexity.

YCH rates (add your pony to one of the detailed MLP works) start at a $20 fee for the background image and $15 for the character, possibly more expensive based on complexity. To preserve the style of the painting a base will likely be used.

Requests can be made for screenshot recolors. If I think it will sell, you may have to wait but you will only pay the Etsy store rate for the finished piece - noting that it will also be sold to other people. If you want an individual piece of work that will not be sold, rates start at $150 and go up by complexity. Note that the average time to complete a screenshot recolor is at least 40 hours, so you're getting a good hourly rate.

Longtime artist and avoider of drama (unless you ask for it), TheFinalLion is yet another attempt by an artist who has gone by many names to share their art and simply have fun doing it.

In the past I was primarily a "furry" artist, but I am starting to move away from that to focus on fantasy art and practicing skills I am lacking in artistically. You'll still see anthro art - frankly they are more fun to draw than people - but do not expect it to be the bulk of my uploads after the old art dump as I move my gallery here.

I'm also trying my hand at some animal reference photography as we have several notable zoos in my area, so if you are looking for reference pics, make sure to look for that folder in my gallery. If there's something you're looking for animalwise that you can't find, don't hesitate to ask because I most definitely did not upload everything I have.

And last, I do NOT individually thank people for watches, favs, llamas, etc.; please don't think I don't appreciate them, I'd just rather be drawing!

*laughs* I have only seen Avatar once, so I'm not sure which animal you'd be referring to. But thank you for the llama . . . I'm afraid I am still learning the new site features (it's been years since I last had an account here) or I'd gift you back with something. Maybe a platypus.

Aw, you're very kind. :) I'm afraid I don't do requests or commissions because I simply have too many other projects on my plate right now. But thanks for asking!
