Chuck Taylor's: Twilight Sparkle & Folarin Hooves

Most likely the only pair of sneakers you'll see featuring bed-room eyes Twilight. xD

Okay! So they are officially finished. Quick update: Added white outline to Folarin's image, painted Twi, cutie mark ad all! Her design was hard to do, I'm not really a painter so all the colors in her mane and tail were difficult to get right. Lots of waiting for things to dry and mixing colors...

Hope you guys and gals enjoy. (I know I will...while I'm strutting down the sidewalk and people look at me funny. :D)

Edit: Okay, I can't post the thread here since there's no place to post thread where you would actually have to pay for the art. So, I'll probably post a link in my signature or profile with a link to another site.

Excellent.

Why did you add the outline to Folarin? It doesn't look better or worse to me. They are both fantastic, so I am curious what the thought process was.

Thanks everyone for the great compliments! I appreciate it. :)

As for Weesh...

Excellent.

Um I honestly don't know! It just seemed kind of bland with just him on the shoe.

Okay, here's a solid reason...I wanted a color that contrasted with the black. White was just what popped into my head. It might not make any difference, but hey...

Edit: Don't take that reason seriously, sometimes artist just..do stuff. This was a moment for me. :D

I suppose there is benefit to calling attention to a work of art that is not at the normal viewing level. What color laces are you going to use?

At the moment I'm using a pair of grey laces, but I'll eventually swap them out for something else. Maybe something obvious, like purple for Twilight's shoe and Yellow for Folarin's shoe.

Or I might get shoe laces based on their eye color.

Sure, let's go with that. :halo:

Do you live in a clean city? I'd never be able to keep the dust from my shoes save never wearing them outside.

It's rather clean here. I live out in the suburbs and it's really clean out here. I sometimes travel to the city, but its still moderately clean, just need to watch where you step.

9 times out of 10, you'll stop in/on a pack of McDonald's Honey Mustard before anything else.

You're a very talented artist, and I'm not. I wonder what it would be like to spend a day in your shoes. I bet drawing awesome ponies is a walk in the park for you. Being able to do things like this must make you feel pretty good and levitated, high top even.

Are the other sides blank? Because you could paint their cutiemarks on the blank sides!

If they're actual Chuck Taylors/Converse shoes, the inside ankle has a large, round logo. He'd have to cover it up or remove it to do their cutie marks.

Edit: PS: Not doubting Lovin's shoes, just sayin' that's what's on the other side of the shoe ^^

Yep, they'r legit Chuck Taylor's, so yeah, the other side had that giant logo on it. Once I learn how to remove it, I'll...

...Yeah! Thats what I planed to do before, because you can't really see all of their cutie marks. I also thought I'd paint 3 more of my OC's on the other side for Folarin's shoe and 3 more of the mane 6 on Twilight's shoe.

Whoa! :-|I thank you for the compliment, but you don't have to say your not. The only way to get good is to practice. Talent will only take you so far; Its about 10% talent 90% skill, maybe lower for talent.

...Yeah, it is easy, but look at it this way. Why is it easy? Because I practice, practice, practice. I've never told anyone, but I've been practicing since I was old enough to draw lines (three years old). And even then, there are people a lot better than me!

I'll admit, I do feel a little on top because my artistic ability is better than a lot of other people, but lets face it...everyone could be a great artist if they practiced. People I know are quick to say they can't draw or have no artistic ability.

I think everyone has ability to do whatever they want, whether it be art, writing, music, or even any other type of activity. You just need to practice and keep working at it. Its only easier for some people because they have a bit of talent which helped them.

In all honesty, I'm a bit envious of you. You don't have the spark of talent like I do, which means you don't have anything to start with, you start from the ground up and build your artistic base from there, sure its probably harder (I would assume), but I think you would ave a lot of determination to do it if you wanted. (Become an artist I mean)

A lot of artist stick within there comfort zone when it comes to art, meaning they really don't try new or different things aside fro what they know, which can make them really good in what they know how to do, but they are oblivious to other methods of doing things.

Sorry this is so long, This is just my opinion of things. Yes, you may not be a talented artist (who knows, maybe you just haven't found the method your good at using), but that doesn't mean you can't be one with skill. There a huge line between skill and talent, believe me. I've seen to many people rely on their talent on my way through the school system, and it just ended up getting sad because they never did anything different. Not that its a problem, but you won't get better if you stick to what you know.
