merponies, tigers, and flying ponies, oh my! [Nov. 28th, 2006|05:22 am]

Happy week after Thanksgiving, everybody!

Did some customizing over the weekend. Frost, the tiger pony, received her symbol and is about halfway re-rooted. The hair is real MLP 3rd gen nylon recycled from tails, mixed with white new nylon, and pinstripes of black new nylon.
The baby merpony got some hair too! Her hair is a lovely 5 color blend of super sleek saran hair - golds, auburns, and a strand of medium blue. Her eyes are the cutest...and she has freckles too! I just need to repair her broken fin (on the NDS fortunately!)
The 3rd pony is made from a G3 Shenanigans, given wings from the Star Catcher who was used to make Wintermint. Way back in the days when Star Catcher was common and can be found in every toy store. This pony was re-rooted with silver tinsel (slightly thicker than usual) and several shades of blue saran. Eyes are original. I'm contemplating a symbol...or maybe I should leave her the way she is? This one was designed with the intent of a x-mas tree decoration. She's very sparkly.

I'm working on updating the Customs Workshop with a list of current and future commissions. It should be updated with design sketches, etc, in a few days. Sorry, but I'm not accepting any new commissions currently.

Is the baby merpony's base one of those Dollar Store fakies? She's very, very cute, and I love how her hair looks in that picture! Glad you're working on the tiger pony, I can't wait to see her when she's done.

Thanks! ^_^ The baby merpony is actually made from a real MLP newborn. Yes, the dollar store fakies are in the same poses.
I'm very surprised at how Frost, the white tiger pony, has been turning out. I was reluctant to work on her because I didn't like her design.

Thanks for the comment. ^_^ I'm not finished re-rooting Frost, so Sapphire Snow (the blue pony with Star Catcher's wings) is December's background. Frost will be January 2007's desktop. ^_^
