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!

i love how this turned out, the use of real gems on the muffin and cutie mark really adds a nice effect! her expression is truly priceless as well, i think that's what really makes this piece.

I love how you use an actual wrapping for the muffin, and the sapphire gem topping, so perfect. Just a question, what brand of paint is used for the metallic finish?

VIIStar Featured By Owner Jan 22, 2013
it's actually a foil cupcake wrapper, so it's not as flimsy as paper :3

all my paints are golden acrylics - i use a matte sealant on top then re apply a glossy polyurethane varnish to bring out the shine again :3 here so that her mane is shinier than her body

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.
