My personality is a mixture of Pinkie Pie and Fluttershy! I'm a total Fluttershy around new people. But after getting to know me, WATCH OUT because become a crazy and random Pinkie Pie.
I've been making ponies since 2005. What got me started was a mixture of me growing up with the old my little pony show, seeing custom ponies and finally buying my first custom pony. I fell in love with a purple pony so I placed a bid and won. Once I received it I was motivated to create my own. My first pony was a playboy pony and it sold and it surprised me that someone wanted to own my work. So that was enough to keep me going. I wanted to keep making ponies that people could fall in love with and want to own. It was a nice accomplished feeling.
In the beginning it was difficult because I didn't have ANY tools, supplies or skills. I was very cautious and scared of trying new things. For example, I was hesitant to work with apoxie sculpt because I was so worried that I wasn't going to be good enough and that the apoxie would go to waste. However I tried it and I gathered more experience and confidence as the years went by.
So here I am now and to a certain degree every pony is a brand new learning experience. I still get scared and worried that the pony I have in mind won't come out as well as I picture it in my head. However I always impress myself when I see the final product before my eyes. I'm very proud of coming this far and I currently have no intention of ever stopping. I might take breaks from time to time due to life and other experiences but I hope I never stop.
