Finally posted the pics for Whimsical Garden. With her bright colors and curly locks, this pony makes me quite happy. ^_^ Click on her icon for her page.


And, here's the page for Baby Sea Lettuce. She turned out really well. I was a bit worried about the end of the tail, but it looks just fine after painting. I love how sparkly she is. ^_^

I finished Hallow, the Halloween pony with the sculpted tree, but I haven't gotten around to taking her pictures yet. Here's a picture of her and her radioactive "friend":


Other things I'm thinking about: a translucent painted wing tutorial (but that's going to require some more experimenting) and the custom design contest for this year. Any ideas for themes? I'm considering a fall/autumn theme.

Fall/autumn sounds good. Halloween would be fun, or just holidays in general. I'd love to jump in on this one, since that's really how I found your site and LJ to begin with.

Well, I think the contest will end around November/December, so that's on the border of Fall/Winter. How about Winter holidays?

That sounds neat! :)

I think until then, I'm probably gonna let ideas roll around in my head. I've seen some of your past winners, and they were AWESOME. Especially that African sunset one.

Heck, I've been trying to mimic that look for a background image for my own art, and can't seem to get it right even. I can only imagine the creativity it would take to win! :)

Wow! I think those are two of your most stunning customs so far. I really love the style of Baby Sea Lettuce's hair - I've never seen it before and it's just beautiful! I'm really excited to see Hallow too. And I'm all for the fall/autumn theme for the contest...I'll have to design a fall wedding pony (I'm getting married Oct. 4!)

Kat PenDragon here

Qow, just seeing the shear magnificence of Baby Sea Lettuce and Whimsical Garden is amazing. They are both beautiful works of art to say the least. I'm already liking Hallow's head here and the radioactive one looks neat so far! I definitely need to see that one finished (seeing as I hoarded them ^^; ) and as to the contest, I'd agree that a fall/halloween/holiday one would be neat. I'm looking forward to any of those, seeing as my birthday's in november I'm in the middle of everything ^^ but whatever theme you choose, I got my colored pencils awaiting to try my hand at it.

Best of luck

Re: thanks person - Share

Those sound like great ideas! "The Four Seasons" could be one of the possible themes. I'll be posting a poll soon. If you think of any new themes, be sure to post. ^_^

Well, it might be a bit late for a spooky/Halloween theme this year. Most people want at least a month or two to work on their designs. Perhaps next year!

A lot of people like Merponies. Someone suggested an undersea/aquatic theme. That way, you could pick a regular pony if you wished. ^_^
