Ryuuzaki Umi pony by dragonofwinternights Ryuuzaki Umi pony by dragonofwinternights
Hee, I've been meaning to play with customising a pony or two for nearly a decade now - finally got around to having a go. ^^ (Mostly because I have the gems out for the amigurumi Umi I'm taking rather more care over...) Decorated with acrylic paints - no rehairing or anything which would take too much time, this is just a fun thing for me, not an excuse to learn something new just yet...

Ryuuzaki Umi from Magic Knight Rayearth, in her gauntlet, wrist-band, and long boots. I moved the decoration on the boots to the side of the leg because it wouldn't make sense for a horse to have something getting in the way where their leg bends - and because it's visible on the side. *grin* Also, it's flat enough there that the gems stood a chance of sticking. There's a spiral of water wrapped about her back left leg, which crests behind the symbol of Selece, her Mashin - who is a dragon with black wings, hence hers. *grin* The glitter on the wings is what was on the pony originally, showing through a very thin layer of watered-down black, because I thought it looked cool. ('I thought it would look cool' explains this entire project, from buying the pony about a decade ago to deciding - AFTER the water was painted - that she should be wearing her boots...)

At some point in the distant future, I may well repaint her with somewhat more care - the brushstrokes are very visible in the white. ^^; But I'm happy enough for now! *grin* (I may well, however, take a better photo with something a bit more interesting about her; the detail on the water came out rather well, considering I haven't painted with acrylics in years. ^^)

Hee, thanks! I cannot lie, she's at the end of my bed, and I've looked up and gone HEE everytime I've woken up so far since I finished her. XD;;;

(Sometimes I even USE the DevArt! *shock* *g*)
