Thanks! Yes, I agree...Hasbro, are you listening? ^_^ They made horizonally striped ponies in the UK, but the colors were pastel.

I'm uploading one of your postal pony to my flickr account, so that I won't hog your bandwidth when I post it in my LJ. I'll be linking back to your website and you lj ... just thought I'd let you know. If it's a problem than I'll take it down.

I've been browsing your site for the last half hour. Your ponies are fabulous :D

Hi! Thanks for the comment. Yes, that is fine as long as it's for personal use & you link back to my main pony site. Some people I know have been using the Postal Pony as their desktop background. ^_^

btw, do you think you could give me a few pointers? I'm customizing my own my little pony for one of my art classes. It'd be awesome if you could help me get an A ^_^

Re: djghjkadhfgjkadlgjkhadlk O.O

Thanks for the comments. ^_^ I think it's better to start with a clean design. Some people create their customs as they go along (I actually do this too), but the pre-planned ones almost always look nicer.
Some customizers will try to do EVERYTHING on a pony - feathers, sequins, glitter all over, paint, rainbows, unicorn horns, etc - I recommend sticking to just a few things & trying not to go overboard.

Also, did you see my tutorials section?

I dug through to this entry just to tell ya, that "pre-hairstyling" pic of Dancing Swan makes her look like the chick from The Killers' Mr. Brightside video.
