Custom Shining Armor by AleximusPrime Custom Shining Armor by AleximusPrime
Got Shining Armor done! I'm really pleased with how he turned out and the hooves were tough to paint but they turned out good! The tail is a bit big but it's shaped just right. I feel like making an armored version and a wedding version someday and knowing me I probably will. When I get the time I'll do Cadance to go along with him.

When I showed my brother my MLP trading cards I got, one of them was Shining Armor. He asked me if he can have it since Shining Armor is one of his favorite. I let him keep it.

I'm not really a fan of the mane, as it has that fan-made look to it, but the body sculpt and all the refined details thereon are TOP NOTCH! Really incredible work. He looks fantastic!

Um........how does it look fan-made? I made it just as I see his mane in the show and used reference.

One part, the body, looks very refined and polished, the other, mane & tail parts, hand-worked with less vector-level precision. I think I just misunderstood when you said you sculpted this. I didn't realize you meant just the mane and tail. N/M

AleximusPrime Featured By Owner Dec 3, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Oh. Well the body legs and head are all from the toy. I made the mane and tail and yes, you can see some fingerprints a little. And if the lines of his hair aren't spot on with how he appeared in the show, it was more likely because I didn't want to waste my time with such tiny details. The hardest manes and tails for me are the ones that have several colors coming together. I am not looking forward to painting Rainbow Dash's tail... D:

He's adorable! Definitely inspires me to do this whenever I get around to buying him. I just can't justify buying the whole set for just him...xD

His fluffy feathered feet are seriously cute, by the way. <3

That's the problem with buying him: he's in a huge set. :no:

Yeah, they had to be painted though, they were white originally.

Hopefully they'll release him on his own; if not, I may just go for it next time there is a sale or my TRU rewards build up, and use the castle as decoration in my baby's MLP nursery. xD

Oh wow, you did an amazing job painting them then! Looks like it was fresh off the assembly line.

They do have a big set of the styling ponies of both him and Cadance. It's cheaper but they don't have the right body types. I hope they make smaller sets of these 2 someday also but just exclude all the fancy decorations. And as for the castle, I think I'm going to remodify and repaint it to look like authentic ancient ruins, that would be awesome!

Eh, maybe in the photo, its' kinda easier to see they were painted in person. But at first sight they are rather well painted. :nod:

I think the jaw is a little too square, the corners too sharp.

Well I didn't have any control over that part, I only sculpted the hair and painted the hooves.
