Custom Twinkle Eye help?
« on: December 04, 2021, 09:07:19 PM »
Hey everyone!!

I've decided to go on the mildly stressful journey of making a custom! I've done more than a few rehairs and symbol paints before, so I think I've gotten enough practice to try my hand at an original character!

The main issue is...well, my base is a normal G1 earth pony but the character I'm trying to make is Twinkle Eyed  :( I have gems in the right size, I'm just unsure on how to go about getting them in place and not look like they're bulging out...does anyone have any tips or tutorials? Thanks!

What kind of gems are you using? Are they flatback? If they are, you should just be able to glue them in place. Don't use super glue as it melts the foil backing. If they are pointed back, you're going to have to cut a hole to fit it into and glue it in place around the edges.

Real TE eyes are like a plug. Which is also something you could do if you wanted to sculpt it.

As far as bulging goes, they are going to do that a little. If it bothers you, the only thing I can think of is cutting a hole to sink it into. But really, if you have the right sized gems they should look fine.

Ahh, thanks!! Mine are flatbacks, I was just having trouble getting them to look right on the pony's head
I think my plan now is to smooth down the original pupil and then glue on top then ^.^
