Custom pony - Shadow by GhostLiger Custom pony - Shadow by GhostLiger
Bait: G4 Rainbow Dash
Hair: Virgin Snow MLP Nylon hair from Dollyhair.com

To embarrass my favourite OC further I decided to turn his pony form into something I can look at every single day XD

This is my first go at making a custom pony and while there are numerous problems with him, I'm actually pretty happy about the way he turned out, which is a relief given the slog it's taken to get him completed.
The eyes and cutie marks are custom printed waterslide decals which gave me a bit of crap since it's my first time printing my own decals and I had issues with dust and stuff getting on them while the acrylic spray dried, then when I finally got that sorted I realised like a dumbass that my printer does not print white and I had bought clear decal paper. One hasty purchase and a few days later and I finally managed to apply them and even then I realised I printing on white meant I had to get the big area out from the middle of Shadow's cutie mark with scissors that were way too large XD; Still less frustrating than trying to hand paint the designs right onto the pony.

Already looking into the process of dyeing ponies so I can start work on making Perona. Don't want Shadow getting too lonely now ;)

Thankies XD Once I can get the cash I'm going to start on Perona. I already got a commission for a rehair, re-eye and re-cutiemark but that's dependent on how easily we can get the base pony needed.
Speaking of that it looks like I may have a problem searching for one of the two ponies needed for Perona. eBay's got loads of Rarity which I need for her head but I need Blossomforth for the wings. So far all I can find are the heads of Blossomforths already been harvested for Alicorn customs. I'll keep searching. Don't really want to use the one I already have.

That should be fun! And commissions, sweet! There's a lady somewhere on here who's been making giant MLP plushies for, like, a thousand bucks. So there's definitely money in this franchise. XD;

Hope you can find it/them!

Oh yeah, if you're not me XD; Things that net others loads of cash tend to fall a little flat if I try them, but then I'm the easy to ignore/forget about type. (Seriously, at Primary School the school bus left without me during a swimming trip, and last school trip to the Science Museum my "friends" forgot about me and left me on my own for about an hour and a half.)

Well there is some light there. I discovered another Pegasus I can use-Diamond Rose. She's a little pricier and I have to import, but more common.

Shadow: I only look happy because the pony I was made out of was happy. That does not mean I'm ready to be anybody's mode of transportation
