Blackness, I love the Amethyst pony! Maybe do something with her horn? Or some crystal bits by her eyes.

Thanks! Some more crystals to/around the horn might be what's missing!! ^.^

I agree I love this one, I rarely see crystal/rock based ponies and it makes me happy!

Here is a preview of my revamped Ghostbusters MLP crossover! His base is a HQG1C Celebrations Big Brother Pony, his mane and tail will be completely rerooted with GITD hair and green blends, his eyes and cutie mark will glow in the dark, and his entire jumpsuit has been sculpted with DAS air dry clay! He has a Mattel GB black proton pack that will be a saddle of sorts--it will be removable!

The little one I live with suggested he wear glasses, and I think I am all sculpted out for now, haha!

I might name him Spengs, after Egon Spengler.

In case the image won't go through, here is the link: https://twitter.com/Warriorfeather/status/1295168708352958465/photo/1

These little ones will be perfect for Halloween, in orange, white and black! Their eyes and the eyes on their black cat cutie marks (painted on both sides!) glow in the dark.

I am hoping to get all of these done by Halloween time. Wish me luck!  :shocked:

Looks amazing so far, ChocolateStarfire!

I don't have much of an update... have been working on my Monochrome swap pony and gessoed the two other WIPs while I was at it. But I still haven't got round to designing the pony for my friend, there's always something more pressing. >_<

I finally baited some G4 and popped the heads off of a few G3 I've had that needed rehairs. I'm lazily working on an Autumn Crisp G4 and am more intently working on an alt rehair for August something. The gemstone G3? August Baugust.
I need to figure out how to make my hair hanks clean after using them for one or two customs, it gets quite messy!

I'm repurposing one of my best customs because the friend it was supposed to go to is not my friend anymore. I'm making it into something that will spark my joy more.
I spent a lot of time and effort into it, but I don't have any regrets changing it for the better. \m/

For now, the paint has been stripped off. I still need to sand the body a little, because I've removed its wings so I need to make the back look smooth.

I love how different the two customs that I'm currently focusing on are. :lol:

I'm struggling a little with this FBR, the colour is close now but still not exactly what I wanted. *pout*

I've got another idea for a custom. All my supplies are still in boxes and it's frustrating :P but at least I'll have projects to look forward to.

edit: This is what I've been doing since December. Well, I got this far in Dec and kinda stopped working on him :P His wings are painted now but I don't have pics.

His body was dyed about 10 years ago but you can see it went uneven with time. I'm planning to do a FBR on him. Colors are going to be dark blue, black and silver. I'm thinking tipped dyed Moonlight hair? Or, perhaps I'll give him fluffy wool hair.

BlackCurtains - those wings are STUNNING!!! I need to get around to sculpting a full set of wings like that one day! Might look at wings for my next project...

I've *almost* finished two ponies this week!

Had planned to start customise Tootsie next, sadly the bait has several highlighter and other stains on her body so she will be hanging out in sunlight for a while in the hope that may fade the stains. If not, I will need to get very creative to cover them all with polymer clay lol.

I've also received another request for commission and am seriously starting to consider buying an air-brush machine!!

BlackCurtains, your ponies are still awesome after all this time!

I'm glad so many of us are still around, making ponies! :3 It makes me happy.

I've been slowly updating my custom website during my downtime between classes I teach...I took decent photos with an actual camera lol

And I realized the other day that I've been dabbling in custom pony making since 2005...15 years ago?! Where does that time go????

It took a lot of trial and error to get here and tbh I'm still not entirely happy with them :P but thank you so much!

You should absolutely try wings! Your sculpting is really good, any wings you make are sure to be amazing. If you want tips or anything, feel free to PM me. My inbox is always open and I'd be happy to help :)

An airbrush will change your life :lol: I love mine and can't even remember what it's like to do a FBR with a brush.

That Ghostbusters pony is gonna be so cool! 

And the wings on that boy are incredible!  Is that Sculpey, or something else?

Over here I'm finishing up my monochrome swap pony.  Other than that, I'm feeling the frustration of having multiple ponies in the works, but none are quite to the rehairing stage, when all I really want to do is rehair right now XD  Well, patience is a virtue.
Thanks to Shimmlight for the new avatar image  :biggrin:

Thank you!! :3

I'm in the process of rehairing him, and unfortunately I had to patch some sculpting near his tail after popping it in...*sigh* So I will have to repaint part of his jumpsuit, thankfully it didn't damage the entire sculpt nor the cutie marks! His mane/tail is mostly Doll Planet's Patronus mixed in with some Link (green haha) and Soylent Green (almost highlighter yellow/neon green tbh).

Patience is a virtue and unfortunately I didn't have it today, I really want to see this guy done haha aaaaaa well will keep working on him when I can :p I know how you felt today SunPony! Aaargh lol
