As Requested: G4.5 Mimic and Ghost of Christmas Present
« on: January 02, 2018, 04:21:27 AM »
Quite a while ago, you folks voted on which unfinished custom I should complete, and G4 Mimic won. Next up is G4 Seapony Sand Dollar, but I wanted to finally post what you all have motivated me to complete!

I think if I did her again, I might sand off the tongue to get it more like the G1 rather than paint the mouth details, but I think I like her!

For the Holiday Custom swap, my box arrived, so I am able to post him as well. Aflame talked about loving the food and warmth of the season, and at first I had a lot of struggle thinking of what would be just right. Then I realized the Ghost of Christmas present seemed like a great fit! Definitely one of my favorite Christmas characters, so he was very fun to make.

The symbol is his torch, which is said to resemble a cornucopia. I started to make a robe, but it was a bit overwhelming to the look with his beard, curly hair, and holly wreath already taking so much of this space up. I really like the curly look for this little guy.

Questions, comments, and constructive feedback always welcome!

You have awesome customs!  And I remember the poll for g4 Mimic- she looks fantastic and that pose really suits her. :D  I also like how you painted in her mouth.  LOVE.

Oh that Mimic is spectacular! I wish Hasbro would see her and be inspired to make a TE line for G4, and just make more random ponies in general. (I love the G4.5 poses, I buy way more ponies these days lol)

STUNNING!!!

Ghost looks amazing - with that beard he reminds me of Hagrid  :lol: lovely colourways.

Oh my, Mimic looks ADORABLE - especially with the G4.5-tongue - really cute with the rhinestone Twinkle Eyes, too!

Question - did you spray paint your G4.5 donor pony to get Mimic's special green body tone?

Oh I do wish that the poses come with their tongues already painted. She looks adorable here, though!

A mother pony can be protective of her young just like dogs.

Question - did you spray paint your G4.5 donor pony to get Mimic's special green body tone?
...

Both Mimic and GoCP are airbrushed. Takes a bit of practice, but I love the effect. Mimic has a diluted base of DecoArt's Neon Lights Radiant Yellow. Quite a while ago, people answered my post about what color Mimic is, and I think this is the closest balance of green and yellow to fit her.
