Derpy Hooves shrugs on her crystal studded muffin! Loves working on the hair for this one - I looked for buns that sort of looked like muffins! and painting her shiny! the pics don't do the shiny and crystals justice ^^
Her pose is amazing xD This is so well made ^^ The oooonly thing I'll mention is that the Crystal ponies had angular eye-reflections... I only mention this tiny thing because the rest of her is so detailed and well done~ Great work :3 Wish I could afford such a thing!
Looks like the real wrapper though Btw, nice use of clear coats right there, didn't know you could use it like that, but in the photo, her body still shines more (maybe because of lighting set up?), and for my knowledge of model car paints, I think a semi-gloss clear would be nice on the body. Either way, amazing skills you have, and just so you know, I look up to you so I can keep learning sculpting.
i think it's the lighting - she's a bit blown out color wise, but since i photograph outside there's not much i can do about that. ^^ her hair is more glossy and her body more shimmery - you'd have to see it in person to really see it.
i kept her body matte over the shiny paint so it would soften a bit and contrast with her hair :3 also, floor/wood polyurethane that comes from a hardware store is much cheaper than model paints and varnishes and pretty much does the same thing ;D
I get my my paint almost at warehouse price (from a friend) so I don't think of the price that much, but you are so much experienced with the paint, Your experience is something that normal human cant comprehend XD. And thanks for the info, one day I have to try it out.
