Rarity and Rainbow Dash customs WIP by AleximusPrime Rarity and Rainbow Dash customs WIP by AleximusPrime
I got a new Rarity the other day which you can see here and that Rainbow Dash is the old one that I customized a year ago which is being redone like the Fluttershy I recently put up. The old Rarity had her horn removed so I could use it for my Vinyl Scratch I'm working on with magnetic glasses.

As you can see, a huge improvement since last time. The manes and tails have already been baked and carved out with sandpaper and an exacto knife and will be painted next. Stay tuned!

The accuracy on Rarity's mane is exceptional, though I'm curious to see how Rainbow Dash looks when finished- it's hard enough for me to find all the colors for her mane in clay, but to paint all the stripes by hand? :faint:

Yeah, I'm not looking forward to it. And Rarity's mane looks way better now that I have carved the lines and sanded it!

Wow these are really good. I seen you done sculpted hair in the past but I see alot on improvement here. I actually restyle the actual hair on my ponies but seems like if you want fully accurate hair, you can sculpt it. Rarity's is awesome and so is Dashie's bangs and tail ;D Awesome work. Ya know it inspires me to try my hand on clay work as I actually used some of it to make a muzzle for my custom for my ponysona.

Nice work yet again, Alex! I can't imagine sculpting Rarity's mane and tail, let alone draw it! As for Rainbow, I think the only major issue is getting the little hair spikes right. Somehow, you manage to do it all nicely.

The spikes are kinda tough, but I've learned it's easiest to just make one snake with a point and then make little ones to rub onto it. Rarity's hair was basically a snake that had a somewhat flat shape to it but round in the middle and it was twisted around and then just formed so that it would look right.

Ah, I see, I see. I only sculpt every once in a while, but it seems you've got a few tricks up your sleeve.

Nicely done!!! Rarity's tail must have been a pain to curl.
I have always hated the smell of Sculpey baking....

It is a pain to curl, and so is her upper mane! D:

Really? It doesn't have that strong of a smell to me...

It is not a strong smell, just different. Slight plastic smell.....
