Should she stay this way? by AleximusPrime Should she stay this way? by AleximusPrime
I've just finished painting and sealing the mane and tail sculpts for my custom Cadance. And while she does look quite lovely here, I still think it might be better to paint her the proper shade of pink. She looks alright but she's too dark pink and her wings are all purple and they're supposed to be pink fading into purple. Her cutie mark is also a bit inaccurate. Otherwise the toy is fine but if you think I should paint her, please let me know in the comments below...

EDIT:
GUYS, HER ORIGINAL WINGS ARE COMPLETELY PURPLE, THEREFORE IT'S EITHER PAINTING ALL OF HER WITH THE FADING PURPLE ON HER WING TIPS OR NOT PAINTING HER AT ALL SO QUIT TELLING ME I CAN JUST PAINT THE WINGS AND LEAVE THE REST UNPAINTED BECAUSE I CAN'T!!!!

EDIT 2: Also, I have NOT yet attached her mane and tail, I just stuck them on for this pic so I won't have to worry about painting them by accident.

I wouldn't think the wings need paint. They look fine, but do whatever, I guess...

They need to be pink with purple fades so that's what I'm going to do.

How do you do that exactly? Do you have a transparent-sorta-like paint?

Personally, I like this model.
Everything looks great, the hair is much better than the toys' plastic-looking like hair.

If you do paint the skin to a lighter shade, don't forget to shade the little swirls... Like see how it's curling in? To give it a detail same with the wings and horn.

The gold-crown, feet and necklace is very well detailed, very shiny giving it a metal like look.

The cutie mark is awesome.

It's great, please keep up the great work. Your model is MUCH better than the models they have on the market.

I say go for accuracy, and good luck trying to getting her Cutie Mark redone. I hear it's a pain to just vector alone, I imagine it may or may not be as hard with paints.

I know it's a lot of work, but I think you should go perfectionist on her.. I think in the long run you will be happy you did, and if you DON'T I think it will always hang above you like "Ugh she feels incomplete"

Love her though. She is looking fantastic.

She looks gorgeous so far, but I've always had a problem with the shade of pink those geniuses at Hasbro chose for Cadence. I would paint her the appropriate colors. It'll be a pain in the flank to do, but with all the detail and work done so far, I think it would really pay off in the end!

You need to make it one of those toys where you pull a string. Then she dances while saying "Sunshine sunshine, ladybugs awake! Clap your hooves and do a little shake!"
Of course that'd be hard to do... but, awesome too! Because Cadance is awesome.

I'm rather confused about why it woudl be impossible to just paint her wings but not her body now, but either way, I think she looks fine the way she is. Of course, it really is up to you.

Well all you need to know is that her shade of pink is too dark and her wings are all completely purple without the fade and she only has one cutie mark.

I wouldn't bother changing it now. It'll be a total pain to do a total repaint at this stage. Paint will get all over your mane/tail.
