I made my first custom pony.
« on: May 29, 2021, 01:31:14 PM »
I decided to get ponies from storage some of them were old customs. I saw this target exclusive pinkie pie that had glitter covering her eyes and a flower symbol covering her original. I couldn’t save her with a condition like that so I decided to customize her into something new. Here’s the photo https://www.deviantart.com/ponyprincess2021/art/G4-my-little-pony-custom-880987006 while customizing I had to repaint her face because paint got stained on it. It didn’t really turn out that well maybe someone can tell me a color that matches her head better. Any advice that can help me with improving future customs will help because I don’t have the best painting skills.

She's cute! You did a good job on her eyes and eyes are always hard.

Some painting advice: Use lots of thin layers of paint to get a smooth finish. If you have trouble with brush strokes showing you can try using make-up sponges to paint instead. Invest in a good paint brush or two. The best advice is to practice :)

I was using random stuff around the house to make her. I didn’t have much so if I did have the actual stuff I needed in time she would’ve been done quicker. I still don’t know what to name her but I thought it could be something that matches with her symbol which is a broken heart. She took about a couple of weeks to complete.

I love the theme going on here! The colors are so fun. I love her eye style especially, it fits really well!

Practice is really the best advice! I think that thin coats is the easiest one to amend-you just add water to your acrylics until its the consistency of milk.

Thank you everyone I tried to give her a similar theme to the original target exclusive pinkie pie because I liked how she had black white and pink hair so I kept it that way.
