Finally finished my first full room mural!!! First time I ever attempted anything of this magnitude. Its a Disney Princess theme for a friends 2 year old daughter. I would have rather gone the pink and blue castle route, but the color choice was all the mothers. Still, Im really happy with how it came out. Everything was hand-painted, and took about 24 hours (3 days, about 8 hours each day). The castle wraps around the entire room, with the various Princesses in castle windows, arches, or flying above the walls. I wish the graphics were better, but had to make them smaller...so they'd fit here....

dude that is gorgeous!!!! what a lucky little girl.

I hope you didn't have to handpaint the outline of everything and used a permanent marker or paint pen instead.

Yep, used a permanent marker for most outlining, and a felt tip pen for the figures' outlines. Most major areas are semi-gloss interior paint, but the figures are done with acrylic craft paint (then sprayed with gloss sealer, to make it easy to clean)....

The couple helped paint some of the base background color areas, and my wife helped paint in some of the detailed color areas after I drew them on the wall, then I'd go back in and finish outlining (as of course, most of my pencil lines would be painted over as I sketched things in). She's pretty talented herself.

In case anyone is wondering, the Scrolls say (in order)

And everyone was happy ever after! (right corner of Jasmine/Ariel wall)

Thanks! Check the link in my sig!

Actually, my daughter's room will be a fantasy forest theme (at least last I checked with her, so we'll see if different, hehe... She's a bit old for Disney Princesses (she's 11), but remember, this is the FIRST one I've attempted... I'm just glad it came out ok (and I'm glad it's over, hehe....) I was guessing about two days, not three.....

Possibly....the girl's grandmother has lots of friends with kids, hehe....so who knows? Of course, now I'd have to work out what I'd charge for it...as I have no idea... This was a gift to my friends as a favor....

Thanks all!

Just wanted to add, that if anyone is thinking of doing something like this, I found good examples of the princesses to work from in a coloring book, and also from online clip art. (of course, I had to then sketch it on the wall and in a larger size...and then hand paint it) At first, we were thinking of using some transfers for the princesses, but any she found were too small (typically, the transfers were going about 8 inches tall or long tops... I told her I could just sketch them and paint them on if she wanted bigger ones, and we'd also be more flexible on what pose we wanted them in... (stupid me eh? hehe...)

Each of the figures in the windows is about a foot high. Cinderella and Ariel are about a foot and a half high. Jasmine is about 8 inches high, but about a foot and a half long, whereas Tink is about 8 inches tall also. It took a full 8 hours for me to complete all of the figures (from sketching them in, to the final outlining), so if anyone wants to try something like this, I'd HIGHLY recommend not going my route, and instead finding some transfers instead, hehe....

EDIT: Damn, should have gotten a closeup pic of the illuminated manuscript letters I did on the scrolls...as I thought they came out pretty neat...(maybe I'll get one in the next few days, and put it up with the others...)

But did you hide some pornography in your mural like the Disney animators sometimes like to do?

good job, glad to see that some areas of the castel were given enoguh diffretiation in color to give the 3d effect...not a bad job at all.

Yeah, it didn't show as much on the pics as it does in person... I used a shade that was two steps lighter than the base castle color, and just dry-brushed on the shading. A similar effect is used for the bushes (which look really good in person), where I dry-brushed a lighter green onto the darker one....
