I posted a version on Tubmlr without flash if you're interested: [link]
My butt looks too shiny in this. XD
So my custom ponysona/pony OC is done and he.........well, I am looking great! :3
It is a custom because I use a pony toy as bait to make it but it's almost more of an original sculpture as you can see. The only part of him that actually looks like the real pony toy are the ears, I didn't sculpt over them. Everything else was covered entirely in Sculpey III oven bake clay and painted with Apple Barrel acrylic paint. The hair, goatee, and tail were all sculpted and painted separately and then super-glued onto the pony body. It was then sealed with watered-down Mod Podge. Also, the tail has a tip of a launching missile I got from one of my Transformers so it can fit in a hole I drilled in his butt with my dremel. And yes, you can in fact bake ponies in the oven, just remember that it must be 275 degrees Fahrenheit and for about 15 minutes. The plastic is floppy when it comes out but after a few minutes of drying, it is back to normal.
I love how he turned out and the cutie mark wasn't as bad as I thought it would be either.
Looks just like my pony and the fact that I was able to do my own original sculpting rather than just add a mane and tail and a little bit of bulk is quite impressive. And as you can see I sort of drew some inspiration from other amazing sculptors like Dustysculptures and BlackoutComix. The eye brows are 3D and I painted those using a black paint marker. I even made his butt more real rather than having the standard round thing like the toys do. His front hooves are a little big but my ponysona is chubby like that so I guess it fits. And I absolutely love how I pulled off the mane, I was afraid that would take forever to figure out!
Well, there I
am. Hope you guys like me
and sorry but I
