My Little Epona Custom

This is my own custom that I worked on for a while. Its Epona from Legend of Zelda. More specifically the Ocarina of Time version. I added a bridle to her since I always wondered how the heck Link lead her around without one! LOL She was fully repainted, airbrushed and sculpted.

This looks amazing! You did such a good job. She's so cute!

Because I'm a horse nerd, I will explain: a bridle isn't needed to control a horse to tell it which way to go. The rider can steer the horse (if the horse has been trained to respond to these commands alone without the use of a bit, bridle and reins) by applying pressure to the horse's side using their legs. They can also tell the horse to speed up, slow down, and back up by using a combination of leg pressure and the way that they are sitting in the saddle (and technically, they don't even need a saddle to do that!) Horses are sensitive and highly intelligent creatures and if they trust their rider, they will do just about anything for them.
I always loved that Link and Epona didn't need a bridle to communicate to each other, that meant that their relationship was one of ultimate trust.

Probably a bit TMI for a comment, lol, sorry! It's late for me.

What Kind of airbrush did you use? I want to use one for my own custom but apparently there are quite a few different kinds -_-
Gippaloo's avatar
hi there! Thanks so much for your comment! I use an airbrush that I got from ebay, its not a namebrand airbrush or anything...If you just search for airbrushes and compressors on ebay you will get a ton of different options :) I suggest using a dual action airbrush with gravity feed with a compressor :) If you need any more help or advice I will be happy to oblige!

This is brilliant! It must've taken a long time to do. I can see that a great deal of care and attention has gone in to this. She looks like something you would see on sale in a shop, I wish she was. You must be very proud of it.
