Bernd was a commission for Bernd01, who originally requested a sitting pony, but changed his mind when he saw the new rearing ponies. I was happy to be able to use the new pattern again, and doing the wings in particular on this one was a lot of fun! In person, he looks like he's just about to spring into the air. I also tried some new things with his forelock, which I'm very happy with. He was a great pony to work on! He is made of Steel, Royal, and Cobalt minky with a Scarlet and Crimson scarf and applique eyes and cutie marks. His wings, tail and forelock are wired for support, and his tail is weighted for balance.

This is fantastic, not least of all for how energetic and eager he is to leap into the sky. Lovely work all the way around, and I love the bright expression that matches his pose so well.

I want to see a stop animation with his wings flapping :P

That would be pretty neat - I wish I knew how!

Silly XD you already know how, you just need a program to take all the still frames and compile them into a video. Though - to make it look good you would need a lot ... a laaaot of photos. Now that I think of it, you would probably just need the photos, plenty of people on DA with the software for editing into video (pretty cheap about $20-40). At the same time, as easy as I say it is, I'm not doing it XD.

Haha :D I think if I were to do that I would need to get a turntable to make taking the photos doable. Seems like too much trouble at the moment :P Thanks for the advice, though!

fireflytwinkletoes's avatar
Thank you! Yes, I did a little bit of needle sculpting on the face :D

Thank you :D I've been going through a lot of iterations of my stallion head lately, and I think I'm getting closer to what I want :)

I really like ponies with fuzzy chins, too :D
Envirotech's avatar
^_^   My OC has one, aaand it makes sense now cause I have a full grown big goatee growing (hoping to cosplay as Dude Lebowski pony at Bronycon this year)

Firefly,how do you do the thing with the eyes and CM? Is it embroidery, or do you have another way?
I'm interested in plush making and was curious.
fireflytwinkletoes's avatar
In the description, it states that the eyes and cutie marks are appliqued. :) There's more info in my FAQ if you're interested.

Oh, sorry, must have missed that.
Thank you!
