Finally, some new pictures. First, the dazzling African Sunset by Red Velvet Rose. I sincerely hope the real custom does justice to her lovely design sketch! ^_^ She will likely be shipped early next week during the next post office run. Please click on her icon to reach her webpage.

And some stuff in progress:

The gargoyle pony looks awful. I gave her a coat of varnish and I really don't like it. Fortunately, I still have some grainy paint...so, she's going to get re-painted. The eyes look neat, though. They are painted in shades of gray. ^_^

The other pony is a the Love Melody/Fairy Tail hybrid. The wings were wired in, the gaps filled with epoxy clay, then painted over with very thick acrylic. The whole pony got a base coat of white.

Other news: The webserver move is complete. I don't think any e-mail messages were lost. However, I was at (another) wedding this weekend, so I wasn't available to answer e-mail. The month of August is going to be really, really busy for me. More weddings are coming up, some of my relatives are visiting, and I have two large projects/presentations for work.
A lot of people have been asking for commissioned projects...I'll probably have two spots for September opening up next week. Please keep an eye on the journal for details.

African Sunset is a jawdropper. Great design on the part of Red Velvet Rose, and flawless execution. She's lovely.

African Sunset really didn't do anything for me during the contest, but seeing the actual custom is something altogether different! She's lovely.

African Sunset

I have to admit I didn't vote for African Sunset in the contest, but only because I thought the design could never be successfully transferred to a "real" pony.
I'm very happy to have been proved wrong. She is just magical! Lovely work, and a truly lovely design. *applauds*

It's a shame you say so, because I really like how the gargoyle pony looks at this stage. I hope she meets your satisfaction levels soon.

Loving the others ^^

Man, when African Sunset won, I confess I was among the many wondering how you'd do her (I can't remember if I voted for her in popular or not...I know she was on my vote list), but you've done your usual magic. She's absolutely stunning. I mean, really, no words here.

Thanks for all of the wonderful comments! I hope to have a little time to work on customs this weekend. Last week was very hectic, with my relatives visiting and a huge meeting to go to. ^_^
