Sea Pony Swiftwind
« on: April 15, 2019, 03:01:48 PM »
Here is Swiftwind as a Sea Pony. I styled his hair up to make it look like he's floating, but I'm not sure I'll keep it that way. Or I might shorten it.

And here he is with two other Swiftwind customs I did standing alongside the MOTU Collector's Swiftwind.

He's perfect! The other two customs are also awesome.

First seeing this my thought was YES a Swiftwind custom.

Good work!  :happy:

Thanks! I love looking at other people's swiftwind customs - especially since I don't have to paint them. The resolution of this photo is good enough that you can see I just can't get the coat to go on smooth. I am definitely enjoying this one more from a distance.

I was thinking of doing Storm - Catra's horse - but there isn't any silver or gray bait, and I am not about to attempt a full-body repaint. I'd rather live with a different body color. I've thought of using a Twilight bait - sort of a pinkish purple Storm . . .

You can try watering down the paint to get the overall paint job to be smoother. It will take many more coats though. I'm not quite sure how metallic paint will water down since I haven't tried it yet.

Also Storm would be super awesome.

I guess I've only watered down paint when painting symbols, and l just wasn't happy with the result. Either way, I can't get the paint  to make fine lines, so I just gave up. As for an FBR . . . shudder ~
