ponies in the works [Aug. 23rd, 2006|12:19 am]

This week, I'm continuing to work on the Winged Melody hybrid pony and I just started on Winnie, the Windows pony. Although I do use Windows XP, this pony is not for me. ^_^

Winnie got several coats of paint for her symbol, including 3 base coats of white and one coat of each color. There are still many layers to go! The NDS symbol is identical (not a mirrored image).
I decided to leave Winged Melody's base color white. She is going to have pastel pink/white/silver saran hair. LOL, I couldn't decide what to do with her, so I just started painting! I had the idea of "cherry blossoms" stuck in my head. The swirls are silver paint and the design is inspired by decorative work on medieval documents. Her eyes are probably not going to be purple...still trying to figure that out.
Also, I'd like to thank the people who commented on Shadow Watcher, the gargoyle pony. I think I must have become accustomed to the eyes...I don't think they're terribly out of place. When she becomes available, I'm going to give the purchaser an option to have the eyes re-painted with something else (glitter, granite, etc.)

Okay, it's late and I hope this entry made sense! ^_^

I agree, Winged Melody looks amazing!!! I only can see yellow on my pc screen, but I can see the details on her symbol's design and you're making a GORGEUS job!!!!

Winnie is a curiosity for me! I'm not a window's fan, but I just can't wait to see her finished :D

Hugs!!! :D

"I think I must have become accustomed to the eyes...I don't think they're terribly out of place."

*blinkblink* Anou? I admit, I didn't comment (and least I don't think I did. I don't remember commenting. Did I comment?) because I've had no brain for at least three weeks now...perhaps longer..., but I saw no problems with the eyes.

...

Oh yeah, and I have stuff to send you. *trots off to send stuff*

I think the eyes look okay too. I guess people were expecting something more extreme, given how un-pony-like Shadow Watcher is.

Ahhh...yes, I got the design. That's really adorable. ^_^

Re: Winged Melody

The Windows pony is a commissioned piece. Winged Melody (Silver Blossom) is one of my experimental projects...she's my design.
