Twilight Sparkle by Poofiemus Twilight Sparkle by Poofiemus
Finally finished her! Been working on and off on her for months. ^^;

She's pretty small, maybe no more than half an inch taller than an current brushable. Completely sculpted from scratch, using Super Sculpy, and then painted with various acrylics and the occasional touch of Pearl-Ex powder to give her her namesake sparkle.

The sculpting part was fun, but the paint. . . ugh. If I do any other ponies like this, I'm so sculpting them from colored clay to begin with and only painting the details!

Aw, thanks! Though it's not entirely talent, there's practice involved, and anybody with patience can get that! ;)

Thanks! :D I'm really happy with the general sculpt, but really really wish that I'd opted to make her in colored clay. It's just so hard to keep large coats like that smooth without an airbrush.

Great sculpture! The pose is lovely, and I like the way her hair's blowing in the wind - and her expression, too. Very nice!

Thanks very much! I'm glad the hair looks good, as it ended up that way for practical reasons-- the mane is lifted so I could get a paintbrush under there, and the tail had to stick out that far to keep her from falling flat on her face. XD

My pleasure. It was worth all those hours you put on her.

BTW, your piece got featured in EQD tonight in "Artisan Pony Crafts Compilation #24". www.equestriadaily.com/2013/09…
