Did a trial run of a new technique for clear wings. Part of it didn't dry.

Will be doing another test run. I got an idea to mix the clear glaze with the glitter. That way, it will stay put instead of running all over the place. I figure about 3-4 layers of clear glaze would be good. The other picture is the Radioactive pony. I changed her lashes. The chunky lashes looked sorta weird. Also, I changed the eyeshadow to bright orange...something to give it more contrast. This pony is getting re-rooted next.

Some things do turn out okay. Here is the link for Hallow, the Halloween pony. I love her vibrant hair.


Thanks for all of the Custom Contest theme suggestions. Keep them coming! Right now, I'm tentatively planning to hold the contest at the end of November/first week of December, before the winter holidays.

Wow, I really like Hallow! Her hair is awesome, and I really like her magnet hoof symbol too...the thorns look so cool. Good luck with the clear wings!

Thanks for the comment. The "thorns" on the hoof symbol started off as an accident...my brush slipped and I painted a stroke that looked like a thorn. Instead of cleaning it up, I just painted more thorns around the heart. ^_^

Aw, I love how Hallow turned out--especially her eyes. They sort of remind me of an owl's eyes.

I really like the idea of a fall-themed contest. Just in time for Christmas too! -has "Nightmare Before X-mas" flashbacks.

Though... How about a flutter pony conest? If we are straying away from the G1 ponies... what about G3 ponies with transparent wings? In that case, we'd be able to design the wings as well! It would be nice to return to Flutter Vally, in a way. ^.^ Always loved those flutter and winged ponies.

I can't wait to see how Miss Radioactive turns out!

Thanks for the comments & the contest suggestions. That would work with the clear wing tutorial that I'm working on.

I really like the uneven stripes in the hair. It looks very natural and very pretty.

Thanks! I wanted to make something different from the usual perfectly even stripes.

I'm actually quite happy to hear that the custom contest will be later this year as i graduate in November and will actually have time to work on it :)

I love all your customs, they're always so creative, and so inspiring :D

Re: six legged ponys

LOL, I've seen people make 6 legged ponies before. Even two and three headed ponies. I usually throw away the extra parts, but that's a good idea to "recycle" them!

Kat again

Actually I rather like the wing with the hole; it reminds me of draconian membrane when it's ripped. And the radioactive pony's looking neat! I can't wait to see it with a mane. And we gotta wait till the winter holidays? Dawwwww...oh well. Just means it'll be super cool, right? Right. ^^ Keep it up.

Re: Kat again

You do? If I wanted to use that, I'd probably add a few more holes, just to balance things out.

I just re-rooted the radioactive pony. New pics are on today's post. ^_^
