Sweetie Belle and Rarity by OtakuSquirrel Sweetie Belle and Rarity by OtakuSquirrel
Because yesterday was a sick day, I decided to spend some time working on some ponies for me!

So, I grabbed several of the kits that I had and bullied my way through them. The first to be finished is Sweetie Belle. Yay! Of course, she had to be in a photo with her sister... and I just happened to have some pretty flowers out back that were blooming after all this nice rain we've had.

Anyway, here's the first picture of my finished Sweetie Belle! =D

Their manes and tails that are pictured here are made from polyurethane resin. I sculpted them in sculpey, and then made silicone molds so I could cast resin copies.

They both turned out so well! What did you use to make the mane glossy? (If you don't mind my asking)

It's a acrylic spray by Krylon called "Crystal Clear"... it comes in satin and gloss-- they also make a matte spray. I use that as my protective coating.

Well, hopefully next month I'll have resin castings of my mane and tail sculps for sale again. Also, once I'm making the resin kits again, my brother can start taking more commissions for finished ponies.

Was this taken at your park?
Reply

OtakuSquirrel Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2012  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Yes and no. It's in the backyard of the Park Ranger residence that I live at, which is in the park, but technically isn't part of the park.

I'm feeling better now. I just stayed out in the elements a bit too much and needed some time to recover. It's pouring rain again today and I'm headed back out into the elements again-- but today I think I'm going to focus more on paperwork and office stuff. ;)

Yeah, I need to do more outdoor photography. Natural lighting looks a lot better... but I usually do a lot of my work in the evenings, so I don't get too much opportunity.

I can't believe how well you did Sweetie Belle's hair! (I say this as I am looking at her on my desktop wallpaper.) Great job. Stop it already. You're making the rest of us look bad. Well actually, *please* don't stop!

LOL! Best piece of advice I ever got was: Whatever you do, no matter how ridiculous, do it well! So here I am, a 35 year old man, making the best damn pony manes that I can. ;)

Snap! Sweetie's mane is awesome! (Rarity's is still pretty) Sculpting her hair must have been difficult BUT it came out perfect! Translating something from 2D to 3D is hard ( ;__; )

I had lots of fun with Sweetie Belle. I find that when I'm having fun with a sculpt, usually it means that I'm getting it right. =)

IM THROWING MY MONEY AT THE SCREEN BUT NOTHINGS HAPPENING!
i cant buy that one can I? I dont trust my color matching capabilities.
(unless there is an automated way to make these colors)

:iconotakusquirrel:
OtakuSquirrel Featured By Owner Mar 15, 2012  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
For Sweetie Belle-- The pink is a mixture of Pink Blush and White-- both are Apple Barrel acrylics. It's maybe a mixture of 1 part white for every 4 or 5 parts pink(best guess-- I lightened it until it looked about right) The other color is Lilac Mist, also by Apple Barrel-- but thankfully it's straight out of the bottle. =)

If my brother ever gets his act together, he should take commissions. I'm also planning on bringing finished poning to Everfree Northwest. I don't like selling my own ponies-- I tend to put a lot of TLC into, and get a bit emotionally invested in the ponies I personally make...

No problem with that. I'd have to finish making all the molds first before I can do that though. LOL! I'm such a slacker these days.
