Checking in: Projects of Feb 20th by dustysculptures Checking in: Projects of Feb 20th by dustysculptures
Edit: Why Hello Reddit :D

Arrrgh! this is so late. blargh. Where does time go?

You can find more pics here: [link]

As you can see I've finished my RD+Tank sculpt, and its come out very nicely. From top to bottom I'm very satisfied. The base is also flocked w/ static grass.

To the right is a long overdue gift for a friend of mine, Rarity w/ AJ, or should I say plush AJ (You can see it better in the extra pics). She just screams for a hug.
Any way I'm working on new stuff now. I'm getting real close to finishing my last projects. I have like a billion more, but I need to put those off so I can work on other things (namely commissions).

Anywho Enjoy!

Unfortunately I do not, I was way too busy at the time (I am one of the department heads and was running the concert)but she loved it. However I asked her if she would like me to send her a link to the original artist and she did say she would. From what I gathered it sat with her on the autograph table for the rest of the day, so I will see if someone took a picture.

This was at Cloudsdale Congress by the way.

yeah.. sorry I am really bad at keeping up on this site, I usually pop on for a second or two to check my notes and throw myself in another direction. I really hate myself for it though. I met alot of awesome artists here, many who correspond with me on just about any note or comment I send or post. I feel really bad when I go on and respond to a reply like this three days later.

A few of my friends have seen Celly and Twi, their reactions were rather funny when I told them that the sculpture had not one bit of paint on it. It's kind of funny too, the first thing that gets my attention are the eyes on anything. The eyes on yer sculptures are no different for me, utterly amazing. Everyone I have shown the sculpt to said the same thing. How fantastic their eyes came out. The fact that they are layered material and not just painted there really gets them. So yeah, they sit out and get a lot of recognition at my house. Especially since I do out of home pc repairs and I get alot of clients visiting my room. The first impressions are hilarious when the first thing they see is a bunch of colorful ponies. Then I show them some of the communities works on my pc and yer sculpt. I have yet to have anyone leave that was not impressed by the detail you threw into that sculpt. My smile still beams at it every time I sit down to admire them here and there. You have improved soo much, I am trying to think of something else I could prolly commission ya for... Ugh, sooooooooooo hard to do >.<

I'm glad I was able to lift yer spirits so. I have been having alot of bad days lately, with what has been going on in the family. Sometimes I do find something simple can turn them right around. Sometimes its a surprise in itself. Makes me happy too. But I have a hard time coming home, even from the worste days at work, and not be happy seeing that sculpture sitting in my room n.n

These! They have so much emotion!

I'm sure I'm not the first person to ask, but what kind of molding clay do you use? And what kind of glaze to get the eyes so shiny? Thanks!

:iconapplejackisdizzyplz: Its all my love for pony~

^^; I do get this question abit, I outta make a tutorial or something. But anywho!
I use colored Sculpey III and Premo clay which can be mixed to get the colors I want, then I add 1/2 translucent Cernit to give it a porcelain-like hardness (super useful for making sure your sculpts don't break, but expensive)

For the eyes I use Sculpey Glaze and coat on several coats till smooth.
Hope this helps ^^ I love to see sculptures others come up with~

Little Rarity and her Applejack plushie stood out instantly, and despite her dejected look it's great that she already has a friend to hold onto. The Cutie mark Crusaders are beautifully cheerful and look terrific. I like Dash's contented pose as she lets Tank support her for a little while, which seems to make them both very happy. Little Trixie (?) is a cutie too. I guess that's Rainbow Dash with Applejack's hat blowing off too, which must be a fun scene when it's ready.

Though off by herself, the stern looking Twilight Sparkle is very pretty too.

:XD: Yeeeeaaaa- I didn't really organize my desk for this pic~ Filly Trixie n' Twilight aren't supposed to be there ^^; but I'm really glad you like 'em any way!

I suppose the AJ plush is sort of a security blanket for Rarity atm, she just kinda sceams to be hugged.
And I can't wait to take professional pics of RD and Tank~ :la:

Thanks again!
