She popped into my head and I just had to get her down on paper! A rather out-of-season Christmas pony - although it's close to Christmas in July so...? XD
She's meant to have Argie Masquerade's hot red/pink body colour, because that's something we never saw in the standard US release ponies (although Lady Flutter becomes close!)

Great design - the red body and icy hair make for an eye-catching combo! I like the stylized symbol, too.

If you were born in the right time/area I'm convinced you would have designed ponies for Hasbro :P Treetrimmer looks wonderful! I love her symbol!

Ah thankyou so much! I kinda wanted to invert the typical Christmas pony colours! I feel like I didn't execute the symbol quite as well as I wanted to though >_< but I'm glad you like it!

Aaah you have no idea how much that means to me! :heart: That's literally my dream! I'm so glad you like her design!

Your concepts are absolutely stunning - each of them. As mainly G1 customiser I'd love to give them a life and think about how to do them best but when they play with the though of becoming part of the HQG1C line (especially the cloudpuff ponies) more people would have access to the final ponies.

That means more to me than you can imagine, as someone who's admired your work for years, thankyou so much, from the bottom of my heart :heart: My dream is that they can be made one day, but you have my absolute blessing to create them if you wish!

Continuing my trend of favouring the various gimmick mashups that occurred later in the G1 line, here are the Rock Candy Ponies! <3
Scented, sparkly, translucent rock stars with crystalline candy guitars and electrifying crimped manes!
The glitter in their bodies is the large chunky mylar stuff, giving them a really crystalline texture and they also have iridescent tinsel in their manes - they're pretty much a combination of some of my favourite G1 aesthetics and I hope you guys love them as well!
This is also one of my favourite backgrounds I've ever designed -- I usually struggle with them due to my lack of depth perception but I think this one turned out great, especially the candy dance floor!
I finally found my grail! :heart:

These are all such beautiful designs! I'm not sure how I feel about the Flutterpillars as a concept, but the designs are still adorable and pretty.

Unfortunately, the images hidden by a spoiler in the first post are defunct.
should be perma-moderated

Those are so cool! I think the chunky, crystalline glitter would translate wonderfully into an actual plastic body. It sounds really pretty :heart: Bubblegum Pop is my favorite!

Aww thankyou so much! Haha they are a bit strange I guess, but I'm glad you like their designs nonetheless!
Thankyou for letting me know, I'll try and get them working again, they were the individual design details for each pony in the Cloudpuff set ;)

Thankyou so much! :heart: That's what I thought too, I wondered why they never did it in the actual line so of course I had to make it happen! She's my favourite as well haha :)

The Rock Candy Ponies are awesome!  Ah, it would be so cool to see them brought to life.  The large glitter stuff in the translucent plastic sounds like it would really look like rock candy!  :cool:
Thanks to Shimmlight for the new avatar image  :biggrin:

The designs and set ideas are lovely and creative, but the presentation is truly amazing! They really capture that Hasbro feeling, and makes me think we could've gotten something like this if G1 MLP had kept going throughout the '90s.

Would love to hear if you have any more ideas in the works. :)

Aww thankyou so much! :heart: It's my dream to design toys for a living (well, that or animate) and I miss when MLP had that as well!

Thankyou so much! :D I mean, if all goes well they might wind up being made for HQG1 in the next few years~! And yeah, I got the idea from looking at how that type of glitter is used in nail art, I always thought it looked like rock candy haha

The designs and set ideas are lovely and creative, but the presentation is truly amazing! They really capture that Hasbro feeling, and makes me think we could've gotten something like this if G1 MLP had kept going throughout the '90s.

Would love to hear if you have any more ideas in the works. :)

Ah thankyou so much, oh my gosh! :heart: That's exactly the 'feel' I'm going for and it makes me so happy that you feel that I've nailed it!
I definitely have more in the works haha, if time allows it I'll be releasing a suitably spooky set for this October...! :heart:

Loving these as well!!!

Ah thankyou so much! :heart:

To tide everyone over for the time being, I tightened up the official design sheets for the Cloudpuffs, you can see them under the cut :heart:

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.
