Wow, all we have to do is submit a new pony design and we could possibly get that made by you? You make it so easy!

You said that Wondermint's jewel has to be incoporated into the design, if she is chosen. I'm curious, not in the context of this contest but for my own plans, have you tried replacing or covering a pony's jewel with something else?

I've recently gotten into customizing. Your work is so amazing and inspriational, some of the best I've seen. I hope you don't mind me LJ-friending you so that I may see your latest projects. :)

Thanks. No, I don't mind if people add me to their lists. I love interacting with other collectors/customizers. ^_^

I tried patching a Valenshy & it didn't go well. I used flexible sculpy & I also tried a self-drying polymer. No matter what I did, there was still a faint hairline seam. Sanding is hard because the pony plastic has a different density compared to the patch. Also, when you move the pony around, the edges will come apart. I like my ponies to be a little more durable. ^_~

If you look in my gallery at Misty Starscape, I incorporated the "crater" left from removing the jewel into the design.

Re: Contest

Hiya! I suggest picking the ones that you like the most. There's still a lot of time to go, so work on the ideas & select the best ones. Good luck! ^_^

XD would you believe that I already have one entry ready to be submitted? It's hand-drawn, if that's alright. b/c I don't have any computer programs that can help me out. :/

Sure, that's okay. Last year, there were several hand drawn entries. Good luck! ^_^

I found this in the mlp_customs community, and I cant wait to get started on it! Could you tell me where I can find outlines of the ponies to use as a base to put my design on? I'm terrible at drawing, but once I have teh outline I am good to go =)
