A Dark. Yet Strangely Pink. Intermission... by OtakuSquirrel A Dark. Yet Strangely Pink. Intermission... by OtakuSquirrel
Because my brother and his family are in the midst of moving, I decided that I should go ahead and steal the half-way finished commissions that should have been wrapped up by now... Tonight I went ahead and worked on a Pinkamina-- the hard part about this is that I haven't even finished my own Pinkamina, so this is honestly the first finished Pinkamina that there is, and I don't get to keep her!!!

Next to Pinkamina is my own Pinkie Pie for comparison-- Both Pinkie Pie and Pinkamina are painted with Apple Barrel Pure Pink... but in the case of Pinkamina, I spiked it with a tiny bit of Apple Barrel Plum Kiss so get that slightly darker tone. The plum color was perfect for darkening up the pink just the right amount and with the right tone. =)

Also, on a bit of a whim-- and because I'm having sulpter's block with Cheerilee and Luna right at the moment, I decided to start work on the winner of my last couple polls... What you see here is what I've dabbled with the last couple evenings while waiting for Pinkamina's paint to dry. This tiny bit of work really is just a teaser as Cheerilee and Luna are still my priorities.

Sculpts are done with Sculpey- the kits are polyurethane resin.

LOL! Thanks. I go the extra mile with all my sculpts because I make molds so I can make lots and lots of resin copies of them. =)

My brother was having trouble with matching the color... I just went through all my paints, grabbed the plum, and cried "Eureka!" I haven't even studied color theory or anything and I knew that it was my best shot. =P

Oh, Pinkamina, I will have you someday!
BTW, will you be including DJ's glasses? Because if you do, PLEASE embed some metal in them, then I can stick a rare earth magnet in my former Rarity's noggin and make them removable.

I'm trying to make enough space between her head and the inside of her mane so I can hide a magnet in there somewhere and have a spot on the back corner of the glasses for the metal to be glued to... I'm going to figure this out. =)

That does sound tricky. It's really not so hard to pop the heads off, just some hot water and a bit of tugging. And in case you are thinking it, it was the neck plug that got me into trouble.. and in this case, that won't be an issue.

Perhaps a poll is called for? See if people want the magnet built in and the glasses touching the mane, or see if they would be cool with either installing their own magnet in the head, or they could use just a bit of white poster putty on her nose bridge to keep them in place, or buy two kits and have DJ Pon3 twins, one with and one without glasses. :)

Well, what I personally want is the removable glasses that would be attached by an external magnet-- and since my vote overrides all others... ;)
If it doesn't work out, I'll play with other options and check with the masses to see what their preference would be.

Oatmeal? Are you crazy?
You have crazy pony magic when it comes to this stuff. I know in the end it will end up awesome like all the rest of your sculpts. :)

Why yes, yes I am crazy.

But I passed my psyche exam for my current job, so it must not be "crazy" in a bad way. ;)
