My mum returned home and I can finally update the site. ^_^

To the left is Shamrock Spring. She's the cousin of Noctaeterna and she was also made from a Jewel Pony. Her symbol needs some touching up...it was painted entirely freehand. Also her hoof gradients aren't finished either. I'll be writing a gradient painting tutorial in the near future. Shamrock Spring will be re-rooted with the sample of "real" MLP hair from dollyhair.com. It feels just like 3rd gen MLP hair. I also purchased some of this nylon hair for more horizontal dyeing experiments...more on this in a later post. The cost is about the same as Saran hair.

To the right is Memento. She is going to be a "dark pony" with delicate bat wings. I haven't finished designing her yet...I think her symbol is going to involve bats. ^_~

I've been working on a striped scarf for a while and I finished the last 3 stripes today. ^_^
The picture and instructions are at the link below. It's very warm and soft!

This site is wonderful!
And all your ponies are just so cute. Can you make
your own ponies?

Re: Wonderful

Thank you! I make custom ponies from Hasbro's ponies. I haven't tried sculpting a pony from scratch, but I suppose it's possible.
