This runs from Jan 22nd to April 30th

Everyone is welcome! If you've been a customizer for decades or have never made a custom, you may participate! Fakies are fine to use!

This is not a swap! You will not be shipping or receiving a pony. You may do with your finished custom what you wish.

This is a challenge where guidelines are set and you make a custom based on those guidelines.

How does it work?
Options were gathered from members for each category. These options are then placed into a poll where other members (and those participating) get to vote on one or more. The voting is open for five days and when finished, the option with the most votes is the one the challenge uses.

Here are the poll options:

Polls 1, 2 & 3 - Colors: Body, hair, eyes
Polls 4, 5 & 6 - Theme, symbols, markings
Polls 7 & 8 - Accessory, required material (these are not mutually exclusive)

Polls will run back to back. This will give time to collect votes and for us to brainstorm and prepare our custom.

Why should I join?
This is a meant to be a fun challenge. It's a way to push yourself to use or do things maybe you've never done before. Beginners can use it as a step-by-step for making a custom. It's interesting to see how everyone interprets the prompts and the pony they make!

Not this time. The only prize will be the satisfaction of finishing!

This thread is a place for us to chat!

If you'd like to participate, just say so! There will be a list but it's mainly for me to keep track of people. This not an eligible event for feedback. There are no commitments. If at anytime you no longer wish to participate, you are perfectly able to walk away without repercussions.

The list of prompts will be posted here so it's easy for you to find.
Challenge Prompts as voted by members:

Week 1
Body Colors: Green, Purple, Yellow
Hair Colors: Red, and a 4-way tie (see thread)
Eye Color: Red or Brown (tied for first)

Week 2
Theme: Animal(s)
Symbols: Stars or Leaves (tied for first)
Secondary Markings: Freckles

Week 3
Accessory: Animal companion
Required Material: Beads

And that about wraps it up! I hope you'll join!



Q. For the body colors, would we pick one of the three, or incorporate all three into the main body somehow?

A. You need to use all three somehow. Like you can use one for the body, one for the symbols and one for the secondary markings. Or all three for the body if you want to do gradients or something.

And everyone remember you can use any hue, tint, tone or shade for the colors chosen.

ahhh exciting! I'm in, I hope I can finish a custom for it this time!

Happy to have you! :D

Maybe.  It will depend on what kind of time I can find for it.  But I enjoyed the last one so if I can, I will.  :biggrin:

I’m going to do my best to participate again! I had a lot of fun with this last time! :)
