Sun and Moon Ponies
« on: August 11, 2021, 01:26:53 AM »
I'm probably one of the slowest customisers ever, has taken me all year to finish these ladies :lol:

But they are finally completed!! Sun and Moon ponies, both were originally Retro Releases picked up for cheap at Aldi, they were rehaired with a variety of different shades. Sculpted additions from polymer clay with mica powder, varnished. Eyes were hand-painted, not my best work but being almost 12 months out of practice they will suffice, lol. Need to improve my pony photography skills next!!

Thanks for stopping by! :satisfied:

They both look great! I love their beautiful curls and you did a fantastic job on the symbols. They make a great pair.

They are both stunning! And the eyes look beautiful to me :)

I know what you mean by creativity coming and going. I do a lot of papercrafts and/or traditional drawing, and for me it seems to be either or - atm I'm more into papercrafts again, and my WIP custom has been sitting untouched for several months. Last year I was busy making customs after a long pause, but this year I've only managed to complete one custom. :rolleyes:

Love them, I love ponies that are bold one shade of colour! Beautiful work.
I know how you feel about being creative!
I get my low points too, I took almost 3 years to complete a commission.
So yeah, it can be hard at times!

They're gorgeous!

I've had a WIP custom sitting for almost 2 years. The hard part is done (sculpted wings), I just need to paint and hair him and he's done but *vaguely gestures*

Wow thanks for all the lovely comments :blush: I forgot how awesome it is to share a finished project and get such nice feedback! You're all so kind!

Glad to hear I'm not the only one who drifts in and out of customising ponies! I've got a huge study load this year, as well as full-time work and family commitments, definitely been hard to find the time and motivation to keep customising.. Got a few more ideas though so hopefully I can find the time to knock out a few more ponies before 2022 :biggrin:

They're a beautiful pair! If that's what your pony eyes look like when you're out of practice, I can't even imagine what they look like when you've been at it for a while. :P Gorgeous hair on both of them, especially Moon.

I also do the drifting-in-and-out-of-art thing, but it's usually a years-long thing instead of a few months off here and there. Work and other life things have a way of pushing creative endeavors aside. I technically have two commissions that have been works in progress for a decade, so, y'know... don't beat yourself up for being slow. What matters is that you're enjoying the process when you have the time and energy for it!

Wonderful! We love some celestial/space ponies! Also yes, creativity does come in waves. Which sucks when you sort of need that creativity when it’s not there.
