[Finished] My first custom - Alonia ~*HQ pics, finally !*~
« on: October 12, 2018, 04:48:25 PM »
Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

Fast Forward to late february of this year, I want to make a Hufflepuff themed pony for a friend out of my bait....But I still had gouache only, heh. I really though the new spray varnish I had bought would still work out but noope. It was chipping AND sticky. I wouldn't dry at all. For literal months, she remained sticky and crackly. I lost my motivation. Hufflepuff pony is nope.

Then, I finally get my hands on acrylic paint, but I had no more motivation for that theme, so I changed my mind again and for the final time : Making my best friend's OC for his birthday : Alonia. She is from his French audio fiction named Erebys. He is working extremely hard on it when he has the time. That fiction he makes is the work of his life and I'm a huge fan of it, I help him out whenever I can.

Anyway, that pony is not the simplest, she has gradients on her body and hair. She also has spots on her legs and ears but I couldn't make them pretty when I painted them so I dropped the idea but kept them on her ears.
Actually, dry painting was easy and fun so everything was fine ! Yesterday, I made her leg gradient and eyes.
And today, I'm doing her rehair with yarn because I have an infinite amount of wool in my parent's home and no money to order nylon and dye. Plus, yarn is sooo pretty ! It's a great alternative. Plus, coloring it with markers is the easiest thing in the world. I wasn't expecting to be that easy, too, using my fellow DIY plug widener and rerooting tool.
Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

So, here we are, finally ! The only thing lacking is her symbol... I have no idea what it is because there's no trace of it on my reference pictures...And I can't ask my friend..Well..I will probably have to discretely do it so I can finish her. ;-D

Sorry for the poor picture quality. I reserve that when she's done. Right now, I'm just taking pictures on the spot while I'm working on her.
Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

Well, now I just have to finish that rehair and get to know what symbol she has and she will be done ! I don't want to risk sealing her with the same spray vanish, it's the only one I have and it was 10€. I've worked so hard on her, I don't want her to become a sticky hell. Boy I'm so happy I will finally make something I'm proud of out of this 4 year old bait. It really came a long way. :lol:
[/spoiler]

Well, there, she's done ! I sneakily asked my friend if she had a symbol/cutie mark and actually, she doesn't, even as an adult ! That's not a big deal at all. Even better, that's easier. :lol: The great thing with the whole universe he has imagined is that it is drastically different from the FiM universe. There's only some Season 1 lore and characters (Like Princess Luna whom has a big role, or Twilight Sparkle whom I'm voicing (*tehe*^^) so, yeah, he has developed that world to an extreme level and I love that ! ^^

Here's the pictures, I'm so happy to be able to show you these. I'm proud of my work, and I had bigger expectations since she's supposed to be a huge gift for my best friend.  :good:

Hope you enjoyed this thread and I also hope you love my pony as much as I do ! I can't wait to publish these pictures on my DeviantArt, that would mean he has received his gift, but for now, we'll have to keep it secret for two to three months. ;) Have a great day !

Take care,

Rose.

Indeed Griffin ! :lol: Thank you so much for you kind comment.

I just finished rehairing her, her head is back up too. Now I leave her to dry for 24h as I had to paint back some paint I rubbed off while rehairing her. No big deal. That means I only have to get her symbol to paint and she'll be done and ready to give. I can't wait ! :frolic:

I will post better pictures of her tomorrow, stay tuned. :D

Take care !

Rose.
