whoo it's probably been some years since I last updated this, so I just adjusted the pricing, examples and shipping sections.


Custom ponies

I base my commissions off of sizes, and amount of detail. I keep a general price range for the size of the custom pony, but the amount of detail the design requires, will determine the price.
I usually am able to look at a design and get a feel for the price, or at times I don't get a feel for the price until after I start working on the custom.

~~~~~Payment methods accepted~~~~~
I have PayPal, and if you are a U.S. resident, you can send me money orders or cashier checks.
I also accept cash safely concealed in an envelope (at customer's expense).  


~~~~~Shipping~~~~~
I have a package scale! And a postage calculator so all I need is your zip code and I can get you a precise quote! 

-------------------------------------------------------
Payment guidelines

Orders that are $50.00 or less need to be done in 1 payment
Orders that are over $50.00 can have a payment plan. 
No holds allowed anymore that are below half the cost of the custom (if it's a premade sale custom)
There can be some exceptions, you'll just have to ask. 

----Request guidelines----
I require at least partial payment upfront for supplies before starting on a commission. This prevents me from having to keep unwanted customs cluttering my shelves for months on end, and makes it so costs don't come out of my pocket~
If occasion arises where I complete a commissioned custom before payment, I'll only hold it for 2-3 months before putting it up for sale (unless it's someone else's original design.)


Excuses for non-payments- this is the internet, nothing anyone tells me can be validly proven to be true. Unless you can prove anything to be true, I'm not obligated to take it into consideration for our transaction; the best I can do is try to be understanding, considerate, while sticking to these guidelines.

REFUNDS- I will not issue refunds. If you commission a piece and only pay part of the payment then don't pay the rest after 4 months, I will put it up for sale and not refund the deposit since you took up my time and materials to do something you did not follow through on paying.
NO REFUNDS ON DEPOSITS OR FIRST PAYMENTS


For sales, no holds accepted.

No refunds if a custom is damaged in your possession after it has arrived safely to you.

Also, did you have any specific pose or generation in mind?
LightningMana-Crafts's avatar
LightningMana-CraftsHobbyist Artisan Crafter
Very pretty! Definitely do-able~

If you have a specific pony base in mind you'd like me to make the design from, let me know~

Here's some recommendations I have from my supply, this first one is a generation 4 princess pose which I feel would suit the character perfectly. A custom from this pose would cost about $65.00.

If you'd prefer a older generation pony base, I also have g3's & g3.5's~ A custom from the regular adult g3 (left pink pony) would cost about $75.00. Custom from the g3.5 (on the right) would be about $55.00.

Methods of payment are PayPal, or money order~ 

I could start work when payment comes in, and you could expect it done approximately within a few days.

Beautiful~ she'd be fun to make. :heart:

A design like that on a g4 will cost around $25.00 (shipping included in that total)~
