A blank pony is my canvas.

I stumbled upon a pony customizing tutorial in 2005 and was immediately inspired to start creating all of my favorite art inspirations into custom pony designs.

Majority of my customs have full body repaints, which in themselves took years to get smooth, by practice. Expressionism for texturing paint for eyes has taken many years of practice, as well. I've also developed my own methods for making my own hair lines on the scalps of my customs, and methods for styling that allow me to create any style of hair out there that exists.

All hair plugs I make for my customs are made from authentic Hasbro pony hair from which is owned by a former employee of Hasbro. Authentic Barbie hair is used, as well.

All textiles on my customs are entirely hand-sewn, and many years of practice have abled me to balance out small details for outfit designs.

Over the recent years I've taken up leather and metal crafting for armor, weapon accessories, and other items and the leather gives textiles a much more authentic feel.

I also resculpt bodily and facial features of my customs every now and then, when necessary.

Thank you SOOOOOO much for join in The Pony Triforce! You are the first member from DA! (Because another member is my friend lol)
Your customs are really awesome. I have seen them in other groups for several times. I think it's really hard to do so much details, like decorations on clothes and weapons, but you did it, and it looks great!:D (Big Grin)
