Hey everypony! Magpiepony here with some exciting news, I have been swept up into the world of shadow box making and I want to open commissions for you lovely people! Please check this journal entry often to know when slots are open, commission status, and other pieces of information you will need to know to get your own shadow box! (NOTE: This is my first time making commissions so bear with me xD I am a newbie at this)

Commissions are: ON HOLD
Slots Available: 0 (Waiting list slots available: 5)

After you read the information below, email me your commission request to magpiepony@gmail.com or send me a message here on deviantart

What is a shadow box?
A shadow box is a deep-set frame that has approx 1 inch of space between the glass and the back of the frame. Special cardstock paper layered on top of each other with foam adhesives give art a three dimensional look and a unique piece for your home! My shadow boxes are 100% hand made, I design, cut the pieces, and assemble them myself. Understandably, one person taking on all of the work on top of a thriving Youtube channel can be very time consuming and thus I can only open so many commissions at a time.

Examples:
Princess Luna Shadow Box SIGNED by Magpie-pony Princess Celestia Shadow Box SIGNED by Magpie-pony Rarity and Applejack (Rarijack) Shadow Box SIGNED by Magpie-pony
Pinkie Pie and Rainbow Dash Shadow Box SIGNED by Magpie-pony Twilight Shadow Box SIGNED by Tara Strong! by Magpie-pony Princess Big Mac Shadow Box by Magpie-pony

Princess Cadance Shadow Box SIGNED by Magpie-pony Custom MLP Shadow Box SIGNED - TheLostNarrator by Magpie-pony Custom MLP Shadow Box - Gutiuserenade and Rarity by Magpie-pony


Pricing:
Flat rate for a 12x12 box is $75 plus shipping.
(That might seem a little steep to some, but when you factor in the cost of the frame, the specialized paper, time, supplies, etc. it makes more sense. Not to mention these pieces are HAND MADE and unique)
The flat rate includes: frame, design, one pony (with or without glitterstock paper and gemstones), minor accessories, and a simple background. typically this price is what you should expect, unless your design requires specialized paper not already at my disposal.
The price for having two characters (depending on the design and complexity) will add an additional 15-25 dollars.

Limitations:
Two ponies (or characters) per box maximum.
As of this current moment, I am only working with 12x12 frames, as time progresses that will change but I need to start slow xD
One box per commissioner (for now, again I need to start slowly and everyone should have a chance!)
No real-world or realistic images. For now, please stick to cartoons (specifically MLP but I'm willing to do other characters as well)

Turn-around time:
I'm limiting myself to 5 commissions at a time (typically that'll be like once or twice a month) to help with turn-around time. From the time you approve the cost of the commission I will do my best to get started. The problem here is that I travel to conventions frequently, and have a Youtube channel to run at the same time so my attention will be understandably divided. I'm hoping I can finish 5 boxes in a month, I don't know how long it will take to ship them to you, that depends on where I am sending your box. Once I have shipped the box you will receive a tracking number. I do promise, however, to work as quickly as possible!

How do I pay?:
Right now the only payment I am accepting is through Paypal. Paypal is the safest most reliable method for transactions that I have ever found online. Getting a paypal set up is generally very easy and will be highly convenient for you in the long run. If you are unable to use PayPal and have alternate payment method suggestions we can discuss it, but that would be rare.
I require the commission price up front (including the shipping costs that will be determined). If there is ANY problem with your box (i.e. it broke in the mail, etc) we will work it out between the two of us how to get that fixed for you.

FAQ:

Can I make the design and then you make it into a shadow box?
Yes, but please bear in mind that transitioning art to paper crafting can be difficult. Other than cutie marks, I don't use pens or ink of any kind to make the design, therefore shading is typically not incorporated (that's why it's called a shadow box, the shadow from the other pieces of paper will act as shading~) If you give me a design I will translate it into a shadow box design and approve it through you before I begin making it.

I have an image from another artist I want turned into a shadow box, can I do that?
ONLY if I PERSONALLY have WRITTEN PERMISSION from that artist. this means they need to email or message me on deviant-art themselves, you can't copy/paste a message from them. I need to hear it from them directly.

Will you draw the design for me?
If you need me to, yes I will. That's included in the flat rate.

There's a specific time I need my shadow box, can you accommodate that?
Well... I can try! Like I said, I'm juggling this along with like a billion other things so although I will try my best I can't guarantee that I can complete a box by a certain date. However, I do plan on working on these as quickly and efficiently as possible!

I want a box like the one you made for yourself that (insert person) signed. Can I get that?
Certain designs, yes, but others were inspired or designed by other artists so I would need you to clear it through them first. 

What is the best way to contact you?
My email: magpiepony@gmail.com. I check it every day, multiple times a day. With commissions opening up I will be sure to check here on DA often too. Those would be the best and only options for shadow box commissions as of right now.

Do you have an ETSY?
Not right now, no. I'm conducting my business solely through Deviantart and Paypal for now. typically ETSY would be for sellers who have bulk items (like one design of shadow box available to everyone) but my work will be custom-made and only for you. I will, however, be making some designs exclusively for sale at Crystal Mountain Pony Con this July. if any are left over I will post them here on DA for purchase.

Do you ship internationally?
Short answer: yes. Long answer: I'll have to do some research on how to ship something that far and have it still be considered fragile. I'll do my best to find out for you how much shipping will end up being before I accept the commission.

Will you sign it?
Of course! I plan to sign all my creations, but ff you don't want the signature visible, I will sign my boxes on the back of the frame in the corner. if you'd like my signature in the box just let me know :) any little messages you want me to add, just ask!

I think that just about covers it... WELP like I said, keep your eyes peeled I have a feeling I'll be updating this journal entry as time goes on. Thanks for reading and hope you all have a great day! -Magpie
Princess Luna Shadow Box SIGNED
The serene and beautiful princess of the night, signed by Tabitha St Germain! 

Everything is hand-cut, designed, and assembled by me.

Luna's shoes are made out of a shiny silver cardstock paper that looks almost like a perfect mirror so it's hard to tell what it is from just a picture. Unlike Celestia, Cadance, and Twilight, I wanted to give Luna a completely unique mane without all the 'glitz and glam' so to speak, I found this gorgeous galaxy-looking paper and decided to use that... I'm VERY happy with how it came out, it makes Luna look even more god-like as she sits elegantly on the moon.
I am aware that she does not have a crown like the other princesses, that was actually a design choice I made. Every kind of crown I designed for Luna distracted from her design and clashed too much on the moon, she just looks more elegant without it ;)

And, of course, the voice for Princess Luna (Tabitha St Germain) signed the moon for me!

(Funny story: I couldn't travel to EFNW with all three shadow boxes as they took up too much space, so I took Celestia's sun, Cadance's Crystal heart, and Luna's moon for the VAs to sign and then I would assemble the actual boxes at home. When I showed Tabitha the moon and told her what I would do with it she said "Wow, no one has ever given me the moon before!" and we both had a good laugh. I will forever go down in history as the first person to give Princess Luna the moon ;) )

Tabitha's message says: "To Magpie <3 Luna Tabitha St Germain"

Special Thanks to "Paper Ponies" for inspiring me to make my own shadow boxes :)

Princess Celestia Shadow Box SIGNED
No Princess shadow box collection would be complete without the grandest Princess of them all: Celestia! 

Everything is hand-cut, designed, and assembled by me.

Celestia's crown, shoes, and necklace is made with reflective gold cardstock; it's often difficult to see that in a photo. 
Her flowing mane is made from glitter paper which gave it the perfect touch! Little purple heart gemstones adorn her necklace and crown. Her cutie mark is made from the same paper as the sun rising behind her (it is glittery, but not as much as her mane, making it easier to sign :P )
Her pose was loosely inspired by "Luna" by BlackFreya found here: blackfreya.deviantart.com/art/… I really like how her wings would 'cradle' the sun as it was rising.
And, of course, the voice for Princess Celestia (Nicole Oliver) signed the sun for me!
Nicole's message says: "To my faithful student Magpie! Hugs, Nicole Oliver PC (meaning Princess Celestia) 2017"

Princess Cadance Shadow Box SIGNED
When I heard Britt McKillip (the voice of Princess Cadance) was going to EFNW 2017, I knew I had to make something special for her to sign. She is my favorite princess, and "A Canterlot Wedding" was the very first MLP episode I saw that introduced me to this fandom! 

Everything is hand-cut, designed, and assembled by me.

Cadance's crown, shoes, and part of her cutie mark is made with reflective gold cardstock; it's often difficult to see that in a photo ergo the reason I included one with the frame and one without. 
The background is a combination of a pearl-like shimmer sheet set atop a light pink background, it changes colors from different angles that it is seen from.
I wanted to give her a little more glitz in her overall design so I used a tame purple glitter paper for her mane/tail/wing designs. Her cutie mark is made of a solid blue glitter paper.
I designed a new crown for my Cadance box because I felt like her actual crown was a bit lack-luster. The three spire crown just seems to fit in perfectly here and I'm glad I made that alteration.
The crystal heart cradled in her tail is made from blue cardstock that has a little glitter, but not overwhelmingly so which makes it easier to sign ;)

Britt's message says: "To Magpie Lots of Love!! Britt McKillip"

Custom MLP Shadow Box SIGNED - TheLostNarrator
Lost was going to meet her favorite voice actress, Ashleigh Ball, for the very first time this year at BABScon 2017, and she wanted something extra special for her to sign. Of course, I took that as a challenge and made this box for her and I think it turned out beautiful!

Applejack, Rainbow Dash, and TheLostNarrator's OC are lifting their cider mugs in celebration with a zap apple in the corner (made specifically for Ashleigh to sign) I thought that would be the perfect combination of the two characters (apples and rainbows). Ashleigh Ball voices both characters in the show, and coincidentially TheLostNarrator is a well-known fandom VA of Rainbow and Applejack as well, so this design was just perfect all around!
At her request, there is no glitter or glitz here (much to my dismay). I used a thicker cardstock sheer paper to make her glasses.
This was the most difficult shadow box to get a good picture of! I felt like the quality was better on the angled shot but it's hard to take in the detail so I've included several different angles (one of them was taken before Ashleigh signed the apple). This was my first time designing my own shadow box design so it is a little rough-around-the-edges in some places but I'm still happy with how it came out!
(Side note: her cutie mark will be inked in later with a white paint pen, it's too thin and small to make with paper :P )

Ashleigh's message says: "To Lost you are the best pony! xo Ashleigh Ball"

Special Thanks to "Paper Ponies" for inspiring me to make my own shadow boxes :)

Hello Magpiepony. My name is Emily, but my pony name is E.C.D Baggins, although my profile is ElinaThunderaPotter. E.C.D Baggins is my second name. Anyway, I'm a huge fan of your audio dramas that you made. The Princess Trixie Sparkle was so very well thought of and the songs are amazing, and you have a really good singing voice, even when you do Pinkie Pie's voice. And the Pinkie Tales are amazing as well. The ones I really enjoy are Shaladdin, The Little Mermare and Egghead and the Beast. But I can't wait for a pony version of Rapunzel. I really hope I can be a great fan of yours. I'm also a artist myself when it comes to customize ponies. I still need to learn about Deviantart and how things work. But I like to get to know people of their art and passion for it. Ever since I saw of the heart break videos I've witnessed from the past, it made me cringe. Some nerve of people. But we are here to back you up against those nay-sayers. Can't wait to here more updates on your next projects.
