MIKEY ESPINOSA – MY LITTLE PONY – THE PRINCESS CELESTIA AND PRINCESS LUNA

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. Mikey Espinosa - My Little Pony framed art 2017 OctoberI 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.Mikey Espinosa - My Little Pony framed art 2017 October raw moonFirstly I had to paint the moon and the sky and later I then added the stars.Mikey Espinosa - My Little Pony framed art 2017 October - Princess LunaPrincess Luna without the background.Mikey Espinosa - My Little Pony framed art 2017 October raw 2Mikey Espinosa - My Little Pony framed art 2017 October - Princess CelestiaPrincess Celestia without the background.Mikey Espinosa - My Little Pony framed art 2017 October raw 3Mikey Espinosa - My Little Pony framed art 2017 October raw 1

Mikey Espinosa – My Little Pony – Pinkie Pie painting

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.

MIKEY ESPINOSA – 4 BEAUTIES OF CHINA – YANG GUIFEI

Yang Guifei – Said to be so beautiful, her face would put flowers to shame (719 – 756, Tang Dynasty.)
Yang Guifei also knownas Yang Yuhuan grew up to be a beauty who caused the downfall of a nation. She rose to become favoured by the Tang Emperor Xuanzong and her family members gained high social ranks. The Emperor began neglecting his duties and giving his complete attention to Yang Guifei soon causing a rebellion against him and the capital. The lovers fled but soldiers soon caught them off guard and demanded her death. Without a choice, she killed herself with the people believing she had brought danger to their country when it was in fact the self indulgent emperor who had let go of his duties causing corruption within the land.

Mikey Espinosa – The Golden Mestiza dress

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.mikey-espinosa-golden-mestiza-dress-painting-24-june-2016mikey-espinosa-golden-mestiza-dress-painting-24-june-2016-1mikey-espinosa-golden-mestiza-dress-painting-24-june-2016-2mikey-espinosa-golden-mestiza-dress-painting-24-june-2016-3

MY REDESIGN OF DISNEYS TIANA FROM PRINCESS AND THE FROG

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.Tiana - Mikey Espinosa - Disney Princess fan art 2016Tiana - Mikey Espinosa - Disney Princess fan art 2016 BNW
