Drew a little gift for Holiday. ^-^
And here is a Fluttershy photo from my recent hike at Devil's Mountain. ^-^
For Holiday again. <3 <3 ^-^
I love your style; the colours look so nice ^^
Thank you! ^-^
OMG!! O: Your art style is super cute! I love it soooo much! How do you draw that good! Teach me your ways... ;)
Uh, thank you. ^-^
It's honestly a pretty unrefined process in my case and there is always way too much sketch constructing going on. X3
What helps me greatly is looking at pony drawing tutorials in picture form cause I can just have them open beside my drawing program (https://www.gimp.org have been using it since 2005, it's also free) and reference them when needed i.o. to get the basics of what I want into the pre sketch.
Some photos of my pocket ponies from recent walks and hikes. ^-^
A work in progress, so Holly can have a pocket me. <3 <3 ^-^
Complete repaint of "umbrella hat Twili". Witch hat sculpted by myself.
Will post progress when it happens... ^-^
mini pumpkin is turning out really well !!! :D she looks super cute !! making me want to do one as well !!
the hat is really a superb sculpt. what kind of materials are you using to customize ?
For the hat I used green stuff, a two component sculpting putty, which keeps a bit of elasticity even after hardening. I figured that would be a good idea on a rubber pony. ^-^
For paints I am using "Game Color" acrylic paints, cause acrylics also dry with some elasticity to them.
And once I am done I will seal the whole pony with acrylic brush on satin varnish. ^-^
Brush is a natural bristle 3/0 model brush.
The little handle is just an old paint pot with some blu tack on top. I will have to paint the small areas on her hooves, after I am done with the rest, but that isn't too bad.
It's handy to have all the miniature painting stuff from painting rpg minis around. I didn't have to buy anything.
This is the first pony I repaint tho, so very exiting! ^-^
I don't really worry about freehand drawing the cutie mark, but the eyes will be interesting, if I decide to actually draw open eyes and not be cheap and just go with the "closed happy" ones. X3
Oh wow, the hat is so nicely molded. Can't wait to see it finished! ^^
and the body/hair paint is so smooth !!!
The trick with model acrylics is to apply multiple, thin layers with slightly watered down paint. It will reduce the visible brush strokes and give a more even finish. ^-^

I was thinking the same thing lolol
Also! Is this your first time making one? ^^
It's the first pony I repaint. I have been waaay too chicken to try before. X3
Now that I have a bit more time again I might actually make progress/ finish her soon.
Tho maybe not with the crazy temperatures here atm, my painting lamp already gets kinda warm just by itself. :I
Will see! ^-^
Only the cutie mark left to do. ^-^ (And fixing the bit of unpainted hooves, as well as a tiny speck of green on the right cheek. X3 )
And as a tip: When painting yellow always prime that area with white first and expect a lot of yellow paint layers, until it looks right. Cause yellow is one of the worst covering paints and also the actual devil.
(Trashy nail polish bonus fingers... X3 )
looks awesome !! cant wait to see when its totally done !!
I am currently trying to muster up the courage to do the cutie mark. Even tho mine is really just kind of an orange blotch with some lines in and a bit of green on top. X3
Cutie mark done. ^-^
So all that's left is hoof clean up painting and varnish.
Ahhh, this is so cute! The cutie mark turned out great. Stellar job! :DD
Thank you! ^-^
Aaand I finally finished pocket Pumpkin.
Twili for comparison. ;)
And the pic below was right before applying the satin varnish. ^-^
Only ended up having a bit of a seam around her lower hooves, cause the extreme heat here has pretty much fused
the acrylic paint and blu tack, which held her on the little paint pot handle. Was a lot of fiddly work trying to fix that as best as possible. Luckily it's not too bad, but I would rather have had a completely smooth finish. :s
It's very good for your first attempt though! Looks pretty clean to me at least.
Congrats on finishing it! ^-^
Thaaank you! ^-^
I am pretty satisfied with how she turned out and have also learned a thing or two about repainting blind bag/mini play set ponies in the process.
This is a process for which some of us are very grateful. ;)
Took Gusty on a walk last week. ^-^
And also went to my local McD when the German MLP (and Transformers) launch happend. ^-^
Sadly Germany is only getting half of the pony wave (only AJ, Pinkie, Twili, Rainbow)... and has that half launched in two waves on top of that. :o
A quick thing for the Even. ^-^

Sapphire Shores got to go on a walk with me today. ^-^
I am currently still(and most likely until Thursday) away from LoE, cause my PC's power supply broke and I need to wait for the new one to arrive. :s
So I tried to kill some time by taking another walk.
This time taking Miss Pommel with me. ^-^
Got the 2nd wave German McD ponies today and the Twili toy is... intense! X3

They can be a bit hard to find here as well sadly. ^-^
Got Magnet Bolt today and she went on a little adventure.
Aaalso now have a very authentic way to store my blind bag ponies. ;)
Our store got the Nightmare Night bags again and I was able to get one of the empty boxes. ^-^
