Doesn't look so much pony to me anymore but still a very cute outcome^^
TishRyuuji Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2009
That's the most beautiful custom pony I've ever seen

Wow, that dappling with acrylics! O.O
I'm starting customizing MLPs too. I was wondering, do you think a kind of hair dye would work instead of rehairing? I'm working on a clydesdale pony right now, and I do NOT have the patience for mohair lol :faints:
rewston Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2009
have you tried thats where i get a lot of hair for my customs. Rit dye apparently works on hair too but ive never used it
hanah-leah Featured By Owner Jul 8, 2009
Wow, that's cute :)
jneia Featured By Owner Jun 11, 2009
Oooh, the paint job on this must've been hard to do :o that's very impressive. I love the mohawk-mane :D
michiruokami Featured By Owner Apr 29, 2009
I really like how you did the dappling on him. I'm currently working on a unit of Glade Runners and I was going to dapple them out, these picture help me a bit in how I'm going to go about it. :)
Amazon-Warrior Featured By Owner Apr 28, 2009
Cracking work, as ever! Many thumbs up. (Just... don't ask where I got them!) You should probably do a horse-painting tutorial for cmon, I think a lot of people would find it helpful.

The cutest thing i've seen this year! That's marketable you know.
Succubus1982 Featured By Owner Apr 24, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Zomg its so cuute! :XD: Nice to see a pony with realistic colours for once. Pity it still has the trademark chubby proportions but ah well maybe you can pretend its a Fallabella? :XD:
shadowlupen Featured By Owner Apr 24, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
Oh wow that dappling is really great! I wish I had those paint skills of yours.

How did you get it's hair into a Mohawk like that?
rewston Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2009
his hair is mohair, for some reason it stuck straight up even when it was much longer so i just trimmed it down. i think i may have put a bit too much in each plug for it to lie flat but its the first rehairing ive done so i needed the practise XD
shadowlupen Featured By Owner Apr 26, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
Well you definitely did a great job! makes me wanna try that, too bad I don't have any ponies D:

pebbles is damn cute
odinnsmeyjar Featured By Owner Apr 24, 2009
That dappling came out gorgeous!
bonbon3272 Featured By Owner Apr 23, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
He's sooooo adorable!!!
KreepingSpawn Featured By Owner Apr 23, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
Pebbles huh? BamBam next? ;p heheheh. sorry, i couldn't resist.

the color is fantastic! dappling looks really natural. i have trouble with acrylics staying/getting sticky... is there somethign i can do to prevent that?
rewston Featured By Owner Apr 23, 2009
i think it depends an awful lot on what brand you get. which ones do you use and what do you use to thin them down?
KreepingSpawn Featured By Owner Apr 24, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
hah. i don't remember the brand... and i didn't thin them at all... just right out the tube. i'm pretty sure it was a student-grade 'budget' brand. ;p

meihua Featured By Owner Apr 23, 2009
beautiful dappling!
AmandaDrage Featured By Owner Apr 23, 2009
oh god... that stripe is adorable. I can't believe you did dappling with acrylics...
rewston Featured By Owner Apr 23, 2009
XD well theres a knack to it, you have to water the paint down so much and theres drybrushing involved too
whaaboo Featured By Owner Apr 23, 2009
he s so cute :)
the mohawk definitly ads more attitude !
love his coloring !
Anathematixs Featured By Owner Apr 23, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
You make me want to take out my old ones again!!!!
Collected them for years when I was little....
My parents cursed me for needing 2 boxes for those things when we moved years ago xD

Great job! ^_^
rewston Featured By Owner Apr 23, 2009
you might have some valuable ones in there, if youve got any of the males they go for a decent amount in good condition so dont throw any away XD, some of them are worth a fortune
Shaliken Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2009   Traditional Artist there a way to find out what they're worth? I've got quite a few and I wanted to modify them, but I dont want to ruin a valuble one either.

Any suggestions? If you could direct me to a site listing worths and rare ponies I'd be most gratful.


rewston Featured By Owner Jun 10, 2009
i dont know of a site that lists values of them, but if you sent me a photo of them all, say with them all laid down so you can see the symbols and stuff i could maybe help you identify them and see if youve got any rare ones and the rest of them you could look up prices on ebay...thats usually the way to go with them.
for a start, internationals are more sought after, which means if they have made in italy or made in argentina on the bottom of their hooves then they are worth more....its also the case if they dont have a country they are made from. most are made in china, hong hong or tialand. Its generally best to not customise the male ones as well unless they are in a terrible state (the ones with the sculpted hair on the legs)
Send me a photo though and ill see what i can do :)
Shaliken Featured By Owner Jun 23, 2009   Traditional Artist
Ok, thanks.

I found a site and identified what I have, but they didnt list values and I didnt check thier feet.

Thanks for the offer and advice. I'll definetly send you some pictures.

Thanks a bunch!

rewston Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2009
well if you let me know what you found out you have i could give you some idea of their worth :)
Shaliken Featured By Owner Jul 15, 2009   Traditional Artist
sorry its taking me so long, but i lost the list for a bit. I found it a few minutes ago, so here it is. Each one is listed by name, and color. unless said otherwise, they are earth ponies...

Ribbon- fuzzy unicorn with neon hair(green/yellow with a streak of orange)

Scrumptious- fuzzy with a watermelon on her rump, and green hair

Sweet stuff- Sparkly eyes and gum drops on her rump, with muti-colored hair

Sundance- both the fuzzy version and the non-fuzzy one. single symbol on the rump and pale pink hair.

Peach Bloosm- pale, slim green body and green hair. Has little pink bloosms on her rump, and shes a flutter ponie(i think thats what they're called)

Magic Hat- White body and purple hair with a dark pink streak. has a hat on her rump that is filled with a bouquet or a rabbit(changes with heat/cold)

Little Flitter- yellow body, white hiar, and butterfly wings. she has a pink bird on her rump.

Parasol- Has rainbow hair, pale pink body and little umbrellas on her rump.

Butterscotch- one of the first sets they released. yellow body, carmel colored hair, and carmel colored butterflies on her rump.

Coco Berry- blue body, pink hair, and a unicorn. she has a raised ice cream cone on her rump.

Gusty- white body, green hair with a red streak, and glittery purple leaves on her rump. she is a unicorn.

Baby Stocking- white body, red hair, and a stencil of a green stocking on her rump.

Baby Northstar- pink body, purple hair, and a pegasus. she has her first tooth, and a compass on her rump pointing to the north star.

Ripples- a sea ponie. she has a pearly white body with pink hair and markings.

Baby gusty- clear, yellow glittery body. pink hair and a unicorn. she has a hot air balloon on her rump.

Twice as fancy Sundance- i have two of these, both non fuzzy, lol. white body and pink hair. the symbols cover thier sides as well as thier rumps.

Brilliant Blossoms- a carosel ponie. blue body, yellow hair, and a 3-D, tasseled saddle.

Pony Bride(no actual name)- slim white body and glittery white hair with a pair of doves on her rump.

Tip toes- yellow hair, purple body, green leotard, and a ballerina. i cant remeber if she had a symbol(i cant find her right now)

Bridal Beauty(no actual name)- slim white body, glittery white hair, and a heart with a bouquet of roses on her rump.

Chocolate Delight- pink body and multi-colored curly hair with an ice cream sunday on her rump, and a hole in her mouth.

Lemon Treats- yellow body, green and white curly hair, with a pink and white slice of cake on her rump.

And thats all of them, i think. I do know that i dont have any boy ponies though...and i'm pretty sure they are all made in hong, yeah, lol.

So what do you think?

Gorgeous!!! I wish they did My Little Pony's like that!!! Especially when I was a child...I LOVED MLP...but not the fact they were nearly always pink!!

The paintwork is so beautifully done and so accurate...from the darker marks around the eyes and the shape of the stripe! A nice little touch with the white on the nostrils and lips, so many people would make it an even, square facial marking!!

Wonderful work!!!
vandonovan Featured By Owner Apr 22, 2009
He's really cute, though I would have photographed him against a bright, colorful solid background. He's a bit hard to see against all the B&W.
NakaseArt Featured By Owner Apr 22, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
so cute ^^

I'd suggest a glossy sealer for the eyes and a satin finnish for the body ^^

those eyes are soo wonderful <3
ArcyEC Featured By Owner Apr 22, 2009
Gorgeous work. :)
eliatra Featured By Owner Apr 22, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Adorable! What a gorgeous paint job on this. I've never seen a MLP done in a realistic style before, but I have to say it works a lot better than I ever would have thought. I almost want to do one now. >.>
