The weather is getting colder again and my Endure sweaters are back! My model Junoh is 6ft 4 and wears an XL sweater. Available at www.mikeyespinosa.bigcartel.com ! The T-shirt is associated with my latest Fairy Tale book “O&Love“
For my nieces birthday, I wanted to paint something she loved, we had our favourite cartoons as a theme for our party. I had Sailor Moon and she had My Little Pony. My nieces favourite characters are Princess Celestia and Princess Luna who are both associated with the sun and moon. The Sailor Scouts are also protectors of the galaxy so I wanted space and the stars to be a common theme. I had the two Princesses attached to string to give the impression that they are floating or hovering around the moon. I also wanted to give the impression that Princess Celestia was making way for Princess Luna to take over the night with the moon.Firstly I had to paint the moon and the sky and later I then added the stars.Princess Luna without the background.Princess Celestia without the background.
I have a little friend that loves My Little Pony, I would call myself a fan of MLP so I had such fun painting this piece for my friend!
Painting her body first, and the sky around her. I did this because Pinkie Pie is famed for her curly locks and I wanted to have the freedom of painting her curls wherever I wanted to.
Of course Pinkie Pie is known for her energetic behaviour and love for foods and parties and I wanted to include this feeling in the painting with sparkles, cookies and a picnic mat! Wouldn’t you want to eat with her!
Princess Rapunzel, Disney labeled the name Tangled to appeal to all genders, I have no issues with that it’s a great movie after all! I kept the fascination she has with the stars by adding glitter to the dress thats hidden within the pink layer and also added the golden flower brooch to show her relationship with her backstory in the Disney film.
Painted with acrylic on canvas, I wanted to capture the beauty of the traditional Filipino dress known as the Mestiza. I also created an illusion of what seems to be either the dress soaked half way in water or a galaxy styled design. The sleeves reach towards the sky as if in flames to show the power, intensity and heat of the Philippine country and adorned her with pearls since the Philippines is known to be the Pearl of the Orient.
Princess Tiana, is a beautiful and strong willed character from a working class background in an early 1900s glamorous world. She’s wearing a dress similar to what Veronica Lake wore for the 1940s “I married a witch” film. The original dress was black but of course I altered the dress to suit her Princess Frog green motif as well as adding some nature looking features.
My redesign of Meg from Hercules.Sassy, flirtatious and strong willed. She is probably the Disney character with the most sex appeal and I wanted to portray this with her clothing and pose. She wears my interpretation of a Roman/Greek tunic held together by knots.
My redesign of Disneys Jane from TarzanThis adventurous lady is a British born y known as Jane. Her and her father travellednto the jungles to research on gorillas, there she met Tarzan. Her redesign very much latches onto the original but I added more frills and layers.
