Six Finished Sculpts

And here are all six of my sculpts! Hopefully tomorrow will lend itself to a bit of spray painting, and I can start making the mold boxes for Pinkie and Dash. =D

While I do like the molded-hair ponies Hasbro made in the gift pack, your work on Pinkie's hair is utterly amazing. Fluttershy, Dash and Rarity look wonderful, too, but being my favorite- and me being a life-long stickler for accuracy in my cartoon toys- Pinkie just couldn't be better.

Thanks! Yeah, I improved as I went along. Applejack isn't bad, and I really am tempted to go back and redo Twilight so her sculpt better matched the rest-- it's not bad... it just doesn't quite match. But, for the moment, I'm not going to worry about all that. Rarity is where I hit my stride, and Pinkie and Dash were last, but Pinkie really was the winner for me. Dash was honestly super easy to do after all the time and work I put into all the others. =)

I saw some of your work else where. These look great, I like them better than the ones in the store.

Uh oh. My work is being seen elsewhere? That's ominous... I've seen it pop up on EqD, ponychan, and on tumblr... Should I be aware of anywhere else in particular?
KAKenterprise's avatar
I didn't mean to worry you. I've seen your work(your molds) a lot on here and since then quite a few times randomly on tumblr.

I've seen that they release fashion style g4 pony's and wondered if you'd be making molds for those giant beasts?

I am tempted to make sculpts for the fashion style ponies... but I'm just not sure how feasible it would be. A FS sized kit would have to be priced a lot higher than one of my current kits (The material cost will be about 8 times as much per kit), and I'm not sure how well I could make back my investment.

Haha When I saw the Thumbnail Dash looked Like Trixie, So I was like "Wtf? Trixie isnt a Mane 6" and then I occurred to me.

Hasbro should sell the toys like this, They would be a lot cuter.
OtakuSquirrel's avatar
My family think they're cuter this way also. They cleaned me out of my back-stock of kits and not I've fallen behind on my orders again! Silly family. =)

I wish hasbro would hire people like you on their toys. I would absolutely buy all of the Mane 6 if they looked like yours! They Look very close to the shows versions.

Question, Do you sell these pre-painted? I have crap painting skills and I would love to have one of these guys for my shelf.
OtakuSquirrel's avatar
I don't sell them pre-painted-- I want to keep the price down as much as possible, and prep and paint take several hours of work; the cost for my labor would make them too expensive for most people if I did that. There are some artists that have expressed a willingness to paint them on commission though... the other alternative would be to find a craft-oriented friend or family member and bribe them with chocolate. =)

Well Unfortunately I am that member. I mean I could do it, but I would really love to get it perfect and have it as a collectible. Do you have a good time for buying them? I know you are swamped right now and I am very flexible.

These are incredible! RainbowDash looks so strange without her rainbow, too.
OtakuSquirrel's avatar
LOL! Yeah, she does. If I had found a Flitterheart before I made the molds for her, I would have had some nice "Fire Fly" pictures to post also. But that time's past and I've got my completed Rainbow Dash now. =)

I'm still going to make a Fire Fly as soon as I got a Flitterheart though... ;)

Wonderful work on the mane/tail & hat sculpts.

Good luck with future work ahead of you!

I totally love and admire your mane/tail resin sculpting! You did a big justice in the ponies, they look so professional! and my! I can se a cute Smartypants there!! :la:
OtakuSquirrel's avatar
Thanks! I got better with each sculpt that I did... although I still take nearly forever to finish a sculpt. Except Dash... Dash went super quick and was easy compared to the rest. =)
