mid week pony update [Mar. 26th, 2008|10:42 am]

The appy pony is coming along. I really didn't like the way she looked a few days ago. I think as I add more layers, she will look better. Her hair is going to be medium or dark brown.
I made the hoof striping a little more random, but it still looks weird. It's probably because real horses have a narrower section between the hoof and the leg. Pony toys don't!

The other pony had her eyes, the gray gradient hooves, and part of her symbol painted. I just need to finish the symbol, paint her hoof mark, and give her eyes a glossy coating. Oh, and install the tail!

Some people have been asking about the Midsummer Contest. I'm moving again this summer, so it will be in the fall again. ^_^

Re: ????

LOL, I wish I didn't have to move. I was at the same place for many years. Last summer, my roommate got a job offer in another city & I decided to get a smaller place. This upcoming year, I'm switching jobs & I can finally afford a nicer place. ^_^

lol As often as you move I'm beginning to wonder if you're part of the same moving culture I am. :p As a kid we used to get moved every six months to a year, two at the most, and almost always moved during the summer so we didn't have to worry about caravaning through the snow. The ponies look lovely, and I can't wait to see what the pretty green one will be. <3

Hmmmm...probably. Now that I think about it, we haven't lived in the same place for more than 4 years. Maybe one of these days I'll settle down! ^_^

Thanks for the comments about the customs. ^_^

Hi there!
I have been following your art for a while now, but always as a lurker.
Thank you for posting, your art is magnificent.
I could not find a way to PM you, and wanted to leave you this link:
Not sure if this pony's would be easier to custom or not, since I have never done this.

Thank you for sharing!

Hello! Thanks for the comment. Yes, I think that pony would be easier to customize because you don't have to remove the eyes or symbols. ^_^
It's for Hasbro's custom pony contest. I bought two of them, but I'm not sure about entering the contest. I heard you don't get the custom back after you mail it in.
