Yes, I know. Haven't written in a loooong time. I went out of town for a few days and I've been really busy with work...there was a big project & presentation I just finished. Whew! *wipes sweat off brow*
Now, I finally have a bit of time to work on ponies. Next month looks busy too, but I'm going to make time for ponies. ^_^ I finished the Coffee Pony & I just need to snap the pictures.
Here's a Halloween-inspired work in progress:


Skully's a 3rd generation pony - cute n' creepy - perfect for Halloween. I used a slightly different technique in making the sparkling skulls & swirls. There's a little more texture & sparkle than the usual flat symbols. And the skulls GLOW. ^_^
I'm thinking of making her hair punk-styled with glowing bits. We'll see how she turns out.

Thanks for the comment. It's hard to get a strong glowing effect. I used a glowing glaze and also glowing glitter on the white parts.

Thanks. ^_^ The swirls were originally in white, but they didn't show up well. The black glitter provides a nice contrast...I'm glad I changed the design!
