Star Sign, a Valentine's Day Galaxy Pony!
« on: February 15, 2018, 01:43:45 AM »
Kind of a mouthful, I know! :P

Happy Valentine's Day!

Say hi to Star Sign! She is my newest custom, made from a very baity Bowtie covered in mildew/mold and age spots, eek! I knew she would be perfect for this kind of paint job, because the spread-out design could cover up all of her dots! Her hair is all from Dollyhair, in the colors Ultraviolet, Brilliant Pussycat, Mermaid and Hot Lips! Her eyes are partly repainted, I really liked the dark purple she had so I overpainted them with a pale pink, and added some highlights!

I took tons of pictures of her, but I'll put most of them in a spoiler to spare everyone's bandwidth! Here's some highlights:

Many thanks to my good friends for their help! Marbletoast came up with the name, and Oak23 gave me hair suggestions!

She is just stunning! I really love how you did the Galaxy print, really a clever way to cover the spots and marks. Her mane colors are perfect too  :)

Beautiful! I love the spattered paint and her hairblend is gorgeous, the darker colours in the blend give some great depth to the overall colour scheme.

Thank you all so much for your kind comments!! :) I love seeing this thread pop up in my 'watched topics' every time someone leaves a nice word! :heart:

@Chaosette, I hadn't planned on selling her! I'm still working on the whole 'being able to emotionally let go of my art for sale', but I appreciate the question all the same! :heart:

I thought I'd share a quick 'before' picture, since it's always kind of mind-blowing to see a custom when it's not quite done yet! You can see some of the age spots/mildew dots poor Bowtie struggled with, which shows just how much I had to cover up with her paint! It's always hard for me to decide when a G1 is 'too far gone' to be repaired, and since Bowtie was basically riddled with mildew and dots, it made the decision a little easier!

I covered all of her dots up with white paint, so I'd have a clear mental image of where the paint needed to go, and uh...
