t-minus two weeks... [May. 30th, 2007|10:26 pm]
Aikarin
[mood |busybusy]

Yes, I know it's been a while since I've updated. The move is planned for two weeks from now. I've been searching for a nice new place, busy packing, and getting rid of stuff. It's amazing how quickly stuff accumulates!!

In pony news, I managed to finish the goat-pony hybrid. Her name is Lavender Speckles and she uses a variety of experimental techniques...furry feet, sculpted tail, dappled paint job. Weird, but cute at the same time. Perhaps I will paint her eyes. She's featured on next month's desktop background, but I photoshopped the eyes. ^_~


And, the eye painting tutorial is finished. It's pretty elaborate. I developed some new processes to make it easier. ^_^ http://www.aikarin.com/mlp/customs/eye.html

I finished the sculpting on the merpony. Just have to decide on a color scheme. Here are some variations I was playing with:







I'm leaning toward the pink or pink gold ones...the last several merponies have been purple/blue.

Omg....Lavender Speckles...is probably the greatest custom I've ever seen.
Don't get me wrong - I've fawned over every single one of your customs....but she just stole my heart completely!

I'm a big fan of the koi, myself, but then again I may be biased because I've been thinking about getting a koi tattoo XD

I agree - the koi is something I've never seen in a pony - very unique and colorful
