Mod - Spitfire by The-DKid Mod - Spitfire by The-DKid
Thought I should have a go at modding since they don't have some of my fave ponies as toys yet. XD Plus the sculpted hair tends to look better in my opinion.

Firs up was Spitfure because she was the easiest out of the 3 I plan to do, but boy was she had to paint! Wonderbolt outfits are way too detailed for a first go. XD

Anyway, I found doing this to be very relaxing tbh. Next up is Big Macintosh and Zecora before I work on redoing the main ponies hair.

Not for sale though I am tempted to open up customs if people are interested and I have time.

Spitfire (c) Hasbro & Lauren Faust

Spit's goggles help hold her hair up and in your example pic, if you notice, she has a band of yellow goggle strap there, you have no strap between the two glass caps

I recognize your talent, I could NEVER do what you do and I admire that, but it's a fail none the less, I might be mad if I was a spitfire fan, but I'm a zecora brony, thus why I'm a zebra

Ooh okay, I see. XD Sorry I was just curious. It's just when I was looking at how the goggles go, sometimes it looks like it's going through her hair because that strap didnt always appear. Much like how Soarin's goes through his. Though I'm also the believer that her hair is like that anyway since when she has her goggles down, her hair is stil up. lol

But thank you for pointing that out. Nice to see another Zecora fan. =3

Zecora is the best non-pony pony

I really like her mane! lol Anyway, what clay did you use? Did you use wire to help it stand up? I am currently sculpting the hair on a pony, and I can't get it stand up the way I want it to. The same goes for the tail, it keeps drooping :P

:iconthe-dkid:
The-DKid Featured By Owner Dec 18, 2011  Student Digital Artist
The clay I used is Milliput and I only used a bit of wire for the tail so it had something to hang onto. Milliput tends to stay up by itself cause it's quite stiff. =3 It's also probably down to the fact it dries within 4 hours so I can keep touching it up to make sure it stays in the right shape. XD

Thank you =3

The sculpted hair looks great :D I've seen some-one else use Mohair to make it super puffy (not for spitfire but for a custom G1 pony). [link] That might've worked too but may have been too messy :D I look forward to seeing Big Mac! He's ALMOST my favourite pony!

Yea, I just recently saw a Fluttershy with that type of main and was amazed. =o Sculpting is something that relaxes me atm though so maybe look into that in the future. ^^

Yay! Another Big Mac fan! 8D
