New Ponies! Here's one who was kinda tricky: Luna's Royal Guardspony (we call him Nightmare Knight) as seen in My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, Nightmare Night. He used to be a Twilight Sparkle blind bag pony (he stands about two inches tall) but then I sculpted him and my wife painted him (it was a tough job to say the least and the photos do not give justice to the detail) and now here he is. Hope you bronies enjoy.

And, as usual, he's up for sale to feed the pony habit: [link]

During this last week, I've been doing a lot of work with some McFarlane Toys Halo Reach action figures. Jorge here was the first figure I got, and over the course of a few days I've given him a complete re-paint. The entire figure, head-to-toe, is hand-painted. Even the tiny warning stickers and UNSC emblem and the like. Finding suitable paints to match Jorge's color scheme was difficult, but worth the effort. I'm also rather pleased with how my metallic visor and "chipped paint" effects turned out. It's also worth noting that the scuffs and chipped paint are a lot heavier on this figure than the others. I want you to be able to take one good look at Jorge and just know that he's seen more action than the rest of Noble Team combined.
My first proper custom-toy. Spent quite a few hours on this one... Pretty extensive job: I stripped the model down to it's basics. Removed all "extra" stuff (like mane and tail). Then I sculpted most of the new stuff you see, Luna's mane, tail, muzzle, horn, crown, neck legs, etc. After that I sanded, painted and detailed it. And finally finished all off with light spray of acrylic clear varnish.
Took few weeks to finish (of which about few were wasted playing Skyrim).
On the bottom you see comparison image with stock unmodified Twilight. The same body model I used with Luna.
NOTICE:I am selling this figure in ebay: [link] Limited time offer. :3 Sold.
This is one of my favorites. I saw a beautiful Derpy Hooves with mail and a bag and thought - hey I'd love to do something like that! So I hopped right on the project and this is what I created! The letters were VERY annoying to make because they are so small and stuck to everything. I tried to give the mail bag a leathery look by painting it a light brown and then watering down a dark brown and painting a thin layer of that on top. In person it looks kind of creased and like old leather so I was really happy.
These two took few weeks to make (lotsa drying time), overall few dozen hours of active work on them.
I used stock blindbag figures as basis for the work. I carved and resculpted them using small wood carving chisel and FixIt putty to sculpt where needed (both ponies manes, Soarin's tail and wings, their goggles and whatnot else small). The paint I used was games workshop acrylic paints which are absolutely blast to work with (although quite expensive :/). Nice and easy to mix, blend and dry according to needs (and also really easy to clean off thanks to their water solubility). Detailing work was achieved with inkjet waterslide decals carefully cut and applied to where needed... And finally finished with light coat of acrylic clear varnish to seal everything in nicely.
These were made for a friend so no, I'm not selling them.
I figured I should finish this plush. I hate wasting material. So on with the plush!
Here is a OOAK plush. So this is the only large Vaporeon I'll be making. Its a laying Vaporeon plush. He has a joint in him neck so he can look from side to side. He measures 19" long 8.5" tall.
He is for sale. My asking price is 75.00 Shipping included within the USA. International buyer pays actual shipping cost. I accept payment of paypal. Please not that is this plush is sold it will be marked as such.
Who ever wants to buys this plush I can list it on etsy or ebay. All you have to is ask!
I changed up my pattern a teeny bit from when I made Chibi Fluttershy (mostly the face and the ears). I'm a little bit too pattern obsessed sometimes and I'm always working to edit them and make them better... But I am really happy with this Chibi pattern the way it is now so I think I'll be keeping it this way.
I added an extra challenge to this one because I wanted her to have a super tiny muffin to keep her company. I've only been making ponies so far so I had a lot of fun designing the muffin! Maybe someday I'll have to make a whole tiny muffin army! I used rare earth magnets (Buckyballs) in the muffin and in Derpy's nose so that she can carry her little muffin around (Buckyballs are so awesomely perfect for this! They're really strong so she can hold onto it quite well but since they're round and tiny they're totally unobtrusive, you really can't tell they are there).
Chibi Derpy is sold and on her way to her new home Austria. My plushies have now traveled to more countries than I have!
The technical side of it is the same as on my other plushies: She is handmade by me from my pattern that I designed. Derpy and her muffin are made from high quality minky fabric and stuffed firmly with non-allergenic polyester Silky Soft ultra plush fiber. Her eyes and cutie mark are machine embroidered with Sulky 30 wt. Heavy Rayon Decorative thread. Her smile is hand embroidered. She contains no wire, isn't weighted and stands just fine on her own. She is about 7 inches tall from foot to eartip and 5 inches long from nose to rump.
