I think it's been almost 3 years since I finished a custom. I've started a few but something always happens to make me stop.

I'm ready for a new one now. Bait is prepped and my desk is clean to work. She's going to be a pale yellow and white pony with climbing roses. It'll be another mashup of ponies and miniatures :)

I want to start doing customs regularly, get back in the groove, and maybe open for commissions to make some income. Commissions always made me nervous and I only ever did two. But that's not for a while. I'd like to do some swaps again.

Ah, but first I need to actually finish a custom :D

BlackCurtains, your customs look gorgeous, I'm sure you'll get back in the swing of things once you start!

I'm working on a G3 Night Glider and wow, those tiny stars are HARD to paint.  Why do I always pick something like this when I KNOW I'll have trouble given my lack of depth perception  :lol:  Well, I started another pony for a private swap so that's given me a break from stars for awhile!

I also placed an order with Dollyhair for the first time in...years...so we'll see how that goes.

I started working on something! A little personal challenge, the rainbow game inspired me to try red for the first time. Let's see how it works out :D

And while I was at it, I finally got round to cleaning up the bait for my friend's custom. It's been sitting and waiting for months and months. :blush:

Yay! There really aren't a lot of red ponies, even in customs. I have some baits I dyed like 10 years ago and a couple are red.

My WIP boy with the big wings? I can't find him. I thought I already had and he was in a specific box, but I went to grab him today and... he's not in the box at all. I looked in the other boxes of customs and my prepped bait drawer and have no clue where he could be. I could have sworn he was in that box :huh:

The Arena is so inspiring! 
I started to work on a pony a while back and I noticed I was having vision issues with the detail work.  I picked up a pair of reading glasses from Walmart and that seems to have made all the difference.

I'm excited to say I am finishing up a Strawberry Cow for my daughter after seeing Heely's Strawberry Cow.  Just fun, no stress.  I also picked up some very groovy rainbow yarn fiber and I want to make a few rainbow powder puff girls.

Glad the glasses are working out   I'll be keeping an eye out for rainbow powder puff ponies of you makes some!

I just finished a G3 Nightglider and now I'm putting the final touch on a pony for a private swap and getting all excited about what to make next...I had a plan to make more G1-G4 ponies but now I want to make... "Drinky" as a companion for Munchy...

I've really been making progress now that classes are over! I got my airbrush out and used it for the first time in ages. I'm on a big gradient kick now. I have two WIPs currently and they're going pretty well so far.

I'm happy to say my artistic mojo is back! I've got three new ponies prepped and ready. I'm excited to use the new paints I bought but I have a lot of sculpting to do first.

Still can't locate big wing guy! Maybe he flew away...

Maaaan, my last post here sounds so promising. I got sidetracked with RL stuff. The baits are still prepped and sitting on my desk. Oh, and I found big wing guy. I think I'll probably finish him first before starting the others. When? I dunno. Soon, I hope.

You and me both :S I finished and posted the red pony but after that I haven't been able to even think about customs. My friend's pony is still waiting...

I finally finished a set of three rehairs I've been working toward for months!  Thanks to LadyAmalthea for sending me the last bait.  Now I just need to photograph them.  After that I have one custom to rehair and then I'll kind of be caught up... *eyes the three WIPs living semi-permenantly in my bait drawer*

I was nearly done rehairing my space pony Cosmic Candy when my rerooting needle broke! Gah! Waiting on several replacements to come in the mail before I can finish her...*sigh*

A pet sim I play, PonyIsland is having a custom contest for the next festival! I didn't enter the last one since my depression was so bad, but I'm going to enter this time. The theme is celestial. I found my big wing custom and the thing is... I was going to do a celestial theme with him anyway :lol: So I'm going to remake his wings, since all work must be new, and just do the idea I had for him. It's perfect, really.

Got to get more primer just ran out priming a newborn twin pony and only the body of alternative Powder (first version I done will be Sailor Saturn Pony). Got more ponies to paint (some need another coat) and do symbols on some ponies. Thinking of using my black watercolour pencil to do the outline of Sunburst’s symbol.

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