wish upon a star...feather [Apr. 14th, 2008|11:50 pm]

I think I had too much coffee this afternoon...I'm still wide awake. Finally got around to editing the numerous pictures of Star Feather, the appaloosa pony. Star Feather is named for her feather hair decorations and the "star" on her forehead. Can you believe I almost abandoned this project? I can't even count the number of layers of paint on her. Dapples & gradients were all done by hand using a dry brush technique, as seen in my gradient painting tutorial. Please click on the icon to reach her page.


You may also use the Star Feather icon for your LiveJournal, but please upload it to your account.


The other pony (the white one with glowing green/yellow hair) is finished, but I still need to take the pics & get approval from the designer. Yes, I used glowing paint. Are you intrigued?


Also took a bunch of pics of more downsizing ponies. I'm not going to have any ponies left at this rate! Don't worry, I'm not giving up customizing. Will be posting these gems, hopefully, this upcoming weekend. Lots of rares, mail orders, along with a bunch of minty old ponies.

Thanks for the comment.

I am selling most of my ponies. I'll keep Ember, my baits, and just a few G1s. Realistically, there's probably no way I could sell ALL of my remaining ponies by the time I move. I estimate that I have about 100 ponies left, not counting the baits.
