Original vector provided by :iconproenix:

Cut and pasted completely with card stock. Aside from my signature, this frame contains no ink.

This was truly challenging since it's the first time i've done this angle as well as doing open eyes. I was very much afraid to tackle this but am very happy with how it came out.

Many thanks to :iconsnack314: for commissioning me to do this.

I hope you like it!

How much is a commission like this, and would you make this one again?

:iconthe-paper-pony:
The-Paper-Pony Featured By Owner Jan 17, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
I totally would. Thus far I charge a flat rate for my Shadowboxes, $45, + $15 for packing and shipping (3.5 lbs via USPS Parcel). I also provide free digital mock-ups if you have a request that I haven't done just yet; an example of which is in the comments.

If you're interested, please please send me a note =)

Hope to hear from you soon ^_^

Okay, thank you so much :) I would just like another like this so you wouldn't have to make another mock-up.

But my recent pay wasn't that great but when I have a little more saved up, I definitely will note you about it :) What you used for Luna's mane and tail looks beautiful :)

Thank you :) It's glitter card stock, an unexpected find while at the craft shop but so perfect for Luna here. I plan on using similar materials when I build Celestia tomorrow.

This is quite a wonderful piece; the shadows, the layers, everything makes this just pop!

I especially like the radical contrast of the card stock you chose for her coat, compared to the choice of material you went with for her mane and tail. It accentuates the beauty of her mane and is very eye catching.

Really nice work... love the sparkly mane and tail! Plus, in the thumbnail it made me think that someone had hit three Lunas on a slot machine, which suddenly seemed like the best slot machine ever.

what exactly is a shadow box?
Reply
:iconthe-paper-pony:
The-Paper-Pony Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
It's a deep set frame. In this case the picture is cut colored card stock layered into the frame to create a 3D effect. It serves mainly as wall art/decoration.

:iconangie103:
Angie103 Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2013  Student General Artist
oh... Are they difficult to make? or is it a thing that a beginner artist can do?

:iconthe-paper-pony:
The-Paper-Pony Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
They aren't necessarily difficult, but highly technical. you need a steady hand to cut out the shapes and a good understanding of how to put the shapes together to recreate the image (shape relations, proportions, positioning, and where to put your tabs so you can overlap shapes as needed. You should totally try it out if you're interested, you can find card stock in the scrapbooking section of any craft shop.

Indeed we do, indeed we do. She turned out just perfectly! Feels -just- like the vector, except in actual physical materials. I particularly like her boots and wings here, as well as the way you reflected her mane's edges with the bigger card pieces. And that eye. That eye and the expression she has are wonderful. Great job all around, maker!
