I made two new MLP customs last weekend: a birthday pony for Toffe’s mom and a Dark Side of the Moon- pony for Toffe (he’s a huge Pink Floyd fan!).
These were the bait ponies I started out with; Merry Treats (whose symbol I already tried to remove many, many years ago) and Shenanigans (whose hair has seen better days…).
I made plans, once again. The idea for the birthday pony was to keep it simple and cute with a picture on the side of Toffe’s family’s dog, Mocca.
The Dark Side of the Moon-pony’s plans look pretty awful :D Plus they changed after I realized the rainbow colors would look a lot better as his mane rather than the tail.
I then sprayed the birthday pony white (it needed a couple of layers to hide the old symbol) and Shenanigans black. It only needed one layer because the black spray covered it pretty well!
I re-rooted her 50/50 with “Chocolate Fudge” and “White Chocolate” and added small, golden highlights (“Goldilocks”) in between. Her hair is delicious-looking! ^_^
So here she is:
And her details:
I think she’s adorable and totally suits Toffe’s mom :) Thankfully she liked it too!
Onto the Dark Side of the Moon-pony! I re-rooted him with 6 different colors: “Pomme d’Amour”, “Sunset”, “Lemon Drop”, “Envy”, “Forget me not” and “Sour Grapes”. His tail is mostly “Black Magick” but has a strand of “Virgin Snow” in it. His hair is meant to replicate the Dark Side of the Moon-symbol’s colors.
So here he is!
I have to admit, he might just be my favorite MLP custom I’ve made so far! His hair was a delight to re-root (although it got frustrating at times) and he was all in all really fun to make :)
Here are his details:
That’s all for now! However, I can tell you that I just spent two hours sculpting two amazing little creatures and they’ll be done during this weekend! Won’t tell you more until I post next time ;)
