Just finished taking the pictures of the coffee dyed pony - her name is Mehndi & her design is based on Indian henna art. Sorry for keeping everyone in suspense, but it took quite some time to finish her! Please click on her icon to reach her page.

I'm going to be re-rooting Skully this weekend. Also, I have a few days off work next week, so look for another update soon. ^_^

I agree: wow!

That looks absolutly amazing, so much detail! I really like the combination of the red hair and yellowed body colouring. And using coffee to do it, that's a nifty idea.

The jewel on her forehead is a really nice touch too.

She looks awesome ^.^

Oh, WOW! I think that's got to be one of your most beautiful and creative ponies yet! The patterns are so vibrant and unique, and her tiny bindi is sooooo cute! <3 *dashes off to show this to Indian gal pal*

Wow, thanks for all of the replies! ^_^ All of the designs were painted free-hand...no sketching or pre-planning. I wanted a "spontaneous" look, so some areas are just a little wonky. I looked at dozens and dozens of henna designs, then I created my own blend. It was a lot of fun. ^_^

It really is too bad that she doesn't smell like coffee anymore. Maybe I can make a coffee-scented pony with a coffee theme. Hmmmm...

Well, I WAS just idly browsing your eljay since I've seen most of your stuff on aikarin.com. But then you had to go make this amazing piece of art. I am completely in love with it. AND NOW I MUST FRIEND YOU.
