Lightning Dust Custom Plush

No Critique, Please... by RaptureCyner

:icontradesonhold: :iconcommissionsclosed: - See page & journal for details

Wonderbolt Academy Lightning Dust for :iconnazegoreng: 

:bulletyellow: Dust is made from opal, sunshine, mango, yellow and azure minky. Her eyes, badge and wings were embroidered with a Brother Innovis 750D embroidery machine, Madiera Rayon embroidery thread, and Bernina V6 embroidery software. The eyes were designed and digitised by me. Her pattern was also designed by me. Her hooves contain poly pellets so she can stand well on her own. She is 17 inches to the top of her head. Her googles are made from super sculpey, thin acrylic, minky and velcro. They were painted to give a worn, damaged look. They fit around her hair and she can wear them on her face/eyes. They are removeable. Her lead pony badge is embroidered, cut and sealed into an embroidery patch, which is stuck on to her vest. 

Please do not ask for the pattern, under no circumstance will I be giving it out. 

:bulletyellow: Dust is definitely one of my favourite ponies. She ties with Daring for my favourite sub character, and I think her design is totally awesome. I've wanted to plush her for a long time, and have actually had her head and body done for several weeks. I just haven't had the time till now to finish her. 

I figured if i was making dust I would do her justice with her full academy uniform. Her hair was a really weird pattern to make, but I love how it came out. I'm so happy to have this plush in my collection. 

I hope you love her! 

Please comment/fav. It means allot to me. 
I have not asked for critique. Any critique is not appreciated. 

:star: Watch me or check out my journal (and tumblr) to see WIPs of this and other current projects. 


I am currently working on other plushes. Keep an eye out on my page if you are interested in owning any of my future plushes.

I think it would look better if... Just kidding, I don't like critiques either because I'm always full aware of all the little mistakes and hoping other people won't notice them/point them out, and I've had people get soooo offended/mad when I say I don't want them.  I thought about looking up artists who do want critiques and putting links to them on my profile, being all like "If you want to help out another artist, redirect your efforts to these people."  It's like nobody wants to help those stumbling newbie artists who really want help, and then get all huffy when they try to force their opinions on artists who don't want them.

Anyway, that's adorable and all.

Thanks. I actually take a tonne of critique these days on my Patreon, where I can get active feedback during creation from other artists. It definitely helps a lot

Yeah, the best time to give advice is BEFORE the project is finished, not once it's all done and it's too late to change anything.  Also there is a difference I think in giving advice to help improve the artwork and just pointing out every mistake you see. :meow:

Totally agree :)

Nicely done. That said, just curious, why is Lightning Dust one of your favorites? I haven't seen a lot of fandom for her I think and I personally wasn't a fan of how she acted but to each their own. I'm just wondering what it is about her that appeals to those who are fans.

Back when we were getting the previews for season 3 I remember she was in one of the advertisements for it. I instantly fell in love with her design, I'd never been so exited for a new pony episode. I guess I don't find her attitude as abrasive as others, she's not that different from early S1 Rainbow Dash. I just LOVE her design so much XD

Yeah, her mane and tail are hard even to draw, but you made them in 3D! And the other details, including the wonderbolt suit are very realistic too. Sincerely, congratulations ^^

yay! My favorite pony! Lightning Dust :D
I love her & I'd live to make one myself too!
The problem is - I'm male XD

just kidding that's not a problem. I like sewing quite a lot, but i've never made something like that before! 
JGreat!The hardest thing about plush making is sometimes finding the right fabric. Isn't it?
Great work! !!!!!!!!
