wishing upon a star [Nov. 11th, 2006|11:41 pm]

The star pony is finished...just need to work on her page and give her a name.


This pony turned out better than I expected, although her design is rather conventional. ^_^ She is re-rooted with the nylon hair sample from www.custompony.com
I copied my original nylon hair review & comparison to another page on the site:
http://www.aikarin.com/mlp/customs/nylonhairreview.html

Also, I'd like to thank everyone who wrote in with suggestions for her name. There were a lot of great choices! ^_^
Poll #865605 Starry Name

What should I name this starry pony? (choices listed alphabetically)

Astrid
8(20.5%)
Constellation
1(2.6%)
Goddess
0(0.0%)
Hekate
0(0.0%)
Nebula
7(17.9%)
Ophiuci
2(5.1%)
Orion
0(0.0%)
Polaris
11(28.2%)
Selene
7(17.9%)
Sidra
1(2.6%)
Vega
2(5.1%)


And the other projects:

The cat pony rooted with fuzzy yarn. Each lock is only one strand (not doubled), otherwise her mane would be too poofy! Her symbol needs to be painted next.


This other one is a commissioned project that was planned a long, long time ago. Her name is Chasing Halos. I just got the bait pony & she's being prepped right now.

I'll be taking one or two commissioned projects near the end of this month...stay tuned for details.

Wow, the starry pony is beautiful! She reminds me of a Disney princess =D

And the kitty pony's hair looks like it would be lovely to sit and pet, super soft.

Hi! It's really LOVELY!!!! Hasbro should have made this kind of design back in the 80's :D

About her name, well, she's kind of delicate... All the names in the list are a little bit strong for me... I'd suggest something like Deneb (brigthest star on Cygnus) :) But I'll vote for one of your names too :D... I identify her with Polaris or Nebula... I have to make a choice xD

Both in-process ponies are so beautiful! I love the cat pony hair :) It's something so fluffy!!! :D

I can't wait to see them finished!! :D

Thanks! Yes, I was trying to go for a "Hasbro-like" design with this one, but there are some differences.
I went with the most popular name in the voting, so she's now called "Polaris". ^_^

As always, your new ponies are beautiful! I'm finding it really hard to vote on a suitable name for the starry pony. And I love the new cat pony - she has that wild, feral cat look and her mane is just gorgeous. Can't wait to see Chasing Halos when she's complete.

(Oh and BTW, this is kimmy-koi here but with my new account made especially for my MLP site and posts. x3 There will be so much it would definitely get in the way of my other account so this makes things easier, heh. My name for the MLP community is Sunflare.)

Thanks for the comment. ^_^ I had a hard time naming the starry pony too...all of the "good names" were already taken. But I'm glad that she does have a unique name.

I wish you could feel the cat pony's mane - it's really soft and silky. I just posted the pics in my gallery. ^_^
