Another commission complete! This one went much smoother than the last commission, but the stripes in the hair did give me a bit of trouble. Pink doesn't coat very well, and neither does white.. kind of hard to make clean lines with those circumstances. Regardless, she is done.

One thing the commissioner was adamant about were the star hair ties. you can't see them too terribly well, but they are there.

Anyway, Candy Star everypony!

EDIT: replaced the old crappy pictures with higher quality images from a camera that didn't belong to a phone >.>


Commissioned by: :iconsuikuzu:

How did you get the hair/mane so shiny? o.o
And, what did you do to get the body paint on so smooth? It looks flawless! O.o

I use a product called Triple Thick for the glossy finish.

As for the body paint, I use an airbrush to get an even coat with no brushstrokes :)

Oh, awesome! Thank you! :D The glossy look looks wonderful. :3
Are airbrushes expensive? Where can I get one?
I'm terribly sorry if I seem to be spamming you with questions. o.o

the price of an airbrush varies, depending on the quality you'd like.

There are 2 main types, a single action airbrush, which basically has an on/off trigger; no direct control over the airflow or how much paint you spray, besides a knob for the paint flow.

The second, more advanced type is a dual action, or double action, airbrush, which allows you to control the airflow, and the paint flow with the trigger alone. This type is more expensive, but allows for more detailed airbrushing.

The sad thing is, the airbrush is not all you need. You have to have either a dedicated air compressor, or canned air with a $12 adapter. I wouldn't recommend canned air, as the pressure drops rapidly, and the cans are quite expensive for how short the last.

All in all, you're lookin at around $200-$300 if you want to get the airbrush and a decent compressor to power it (normal air compressors work fine, but may be too strong).

Hope this helps :)
