PostPosted: 0    Post subject: A Helping Hoof Fluttershy and Baby Tank sculpture custom

Just finished this sculpture and put it on eBay. I guess I'm still going to stick with it for awhile. A new Fluttershy and Baby Tank made with artist's permission.
NOTE - The dark pink spots on the mane and tail are raindrops. They don't really look dark like that, it is just my lousy camera.
Original artwork is named - "A Helping Hoof"

Thanks a lot. I am still trying to get my painting to look better. Advice anyone? Other than practice, practice,practice. The last pic is the first one I made and Fluttershy is the last. I think I still need to thin my paint.

when it comes to paint (as really new myself) the recommendation is lots of thin layers to look more natural so perhaps try that?

OMG! R2D2 Spike!! *grabby hands* soo cute! I think you did a great job, it is so hard to sculpt completely from scratch, but with practice you will get even better.

These are all adorable! I think you did a great job. I agree with the paint comment. Did you seal these? And if so, did you use a glossy sealant? If so, I'd recommend a matte sealant to cut down on shinies.

Again, I think these are great! Rarity 3PO is cracking me up, and the Gala Dashie is just so cute.

I did use matte sealer

Just finished Pinkie Pie and Gummy. My local craft store ran out of the clay I normally use and tried Sculpey original. Way too soft. Pinkie's head ended up sagging a little and I had to make her tail too thick to manage the curls and Gummy. Oh well. Gummy is still cute.

Pinkie looks even better than your earlier works - you can really see your progress! Awesome!

Thanks for the advice and the kudos everyone. I think I will try 1 more tomorrow. I am out of fresh ideas and I could spend days searching through pictures before a certain one might catch my fancy.

So instead, does anyone have a favorite pony picture they would like to see made?

Give me a picture and I will see if I can make it come to life, so to speak. If I get a good one before it is too late in the morning I might be able to finish it by tomorrow evening. I am not offering commission work. I just think it might be fun to try to bring someones favorite to the 3D world.

Doesn't anyone have a favorite picture? I'm not sure if I was clear. This is not a commission and I am not asking for your favorite so I can make it to sell to you. I just think this might be a fun way to get my next design.
