MLP Mythological Rarity Auction by VIIStar MLP Mythological Rarity Auction by VIIStar
Since I was sick all week I didn't want to phone it in on my commissions so I made a Rarity instead.  

She stands 6" without her base and has pointback navettes as her cutie mark and a crystal in her eye.  Her hair is brushed with metallic paint for extra shine!  ALSO, SHE IS NOT FOR REMAKE and is OOAK!

Mythological Rarity is up for auction until sunday the 24th at 7PM

Tumblr photoset :…

For FAQ, Demos, Commission status, please see my journal.

ALSO do not forget the contest!  December approaches!  Time does not sleep!

Also, cause i liked doing that last one - next grym kiriban done at 200k!  \OoO/

Into the favorites, this goes! +fav 
Looks absolutely gorgeous. The traditional unicorn design really suits her and makes her elegance stand out well with that pose.

Though, I'm not sure how you managed to make it stand that way. Must have been a very hard wire to withstand its own weight. Plus the clay is flawless despite being white in colour. No thumbprints or dirt whatsoever.

I went through your gallery and I'm very amazed by your craftsmanship and skill. Your DD is well deserved. +fav

Woah, those hooves are fantastic and Rarity's pose too! The eyes and everything!
qeveren Featured By Owner Jan 22, 2016
I'm a bit late to the party, but that's lovely work!  I've always liked fans' 'traditional unicorn' interpretations. :)
VIIStar Featured By Owner Jan 24, 2016
you cannot be late to an eternal party - one that has no beginning and no end :}

Glad you like her!  I really enjoy making these alternate designs

Oh wow, I missed this in my devwatch folder, this is really gorgeous. Great job on the design!
LeeNSendo Featured By Owner Oct 31, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
This is simply beautiful! Your work is astounding and brilliant.
CrimsonRisk Featured By Owner Oct 4, 2014
Beautiful slender form. I want to see her cutie mark closer, it looks like it pops out a bit?
VIIStar Featured By Owner Oct 4, 2014…

for inset and closeups I use tumblr photosets so i don't have to post a million times and irritate people :3

they're stripped antique pointback navettes, so they do stick out of her flank ^^
NekoNeko1331 Featured By Owner Sep 15, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
eeeeeeee I love it when people draw/make ponies mythologically accurate! It just makes me feel like everything is just "right". The canon MLP art style is great too, but I just think the mythologically accurate designs are always much more beautiful. >w<

0_0 <3  My goodness!!! That pose... Speechless...  I'd want something like that under glass, and armored guard surveillance for protection of the slightest hint of dust to land on her!  XD  hehe  Incredible art, just.. Wow.. I can't even begin to imagine the work that went into her. Therefore, I can only agree with seeing the not being reproduced heading.  hehe   Simply gorgeous and beautiful!! ^_^ Masterful work! :D I'd love to see her one day in person, but reading the comments seems like she is on a fair journey and I wish her the most safest travels and the owner many years of enjoyment!! ^_^

What is OOAK?

Ooak > Plain Oak

Or maybe the extra "O" stands for "ordinary"? heh.
VIIStar Featured By Owner Sep 9, 2014
google it
Flammeye Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2014
Oh wow it exists! I thought it was a typo. Anyway, good luck in the auction
VIIStar Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2014
heh gotcha - it's crafterspeak :3   
auction went well and she quickly arrived without damage!

I cant believe your little scultures, they look like from the shop ; _ ; 
So perfect, so pretty and very oryginal <3333
DeviantMetroid Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2014  Student Traditional Artist
That's so amazing, I wish the fetlocks didn't trigger my trypophobia XD
CallMeShaudo Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2015
I am both glad you said this and deeply wish you hadn't.

I did and did NOT need to know that the biggest phobia I've had since childhood has a NAME.

....And now I can't look at the fetlocks without thinking about it.
DeviantMetroid Featured By Owner Feb 25, 2015  Student Traditional Artist
Yeah, those conflicting feelings are all too familiar to me as well. I hope you were able to look away from the screen easily enough when you googled it; I know I have a lot of trouble with that...
CallMeShaudo Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2015
You kind of get lost in it, right? I feel like there's something under the surface that's causing it and that it'll spread or something if I look away. Makes me wonder if this phobia stems from the smallest dangers in nature. Swarming insects, structurally degenerative disease, decay, stuff like that. Could just be me, though.
DeviantMetroid Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2015  Student Traditional Artist
Yep, exactly how I feel. Really gross, but fascinating in a grim, nauseating sort of way. I've looked into it and, yes, the phobia stems from instinctual wariness of swarming, carnivorous insects that build particular structures or consume food with distinct patterns; we have an amplified sensitivity to something most humans can brush off. Oddly enough, there is also a theoretical link to bees, specifically and the shape of the hives they make. Apparently humans used to have a near-mutualistic relationship with many species of bees and over time we learned to dread things crawling around inside tiny, clustered holes. It's the disease thing that makes me most uncomfortable, though. Mutagenic plague body horror is my go-to genre for disturbing media lol

Well deserving of a deviation. This is GORGEOUS.
Conga-Heli Featured By Owner Sep 4, 2014
I can see you have such great skill with sculpting.
But still, I don't understand why MLP is so popular... :iconidkplz:
(I'm not a bronie/brony and I'm trying not to be discriminative with this comment)
Conga-Heli Featured By Owner Edited Sep 7, 2014
Well I would like to apologize if I offended you to make that comment

If what I said was not clear perhaps this suites my comment to you better

I don't understand why MLP is VERY if not EXTREMELY popular to the male audience even though it's aimed at a different audicence completely.

But still, here is some text from…

"The series, based on Hasbro's My Little Pony line of toys and animated works, is intended for girls age two through 11"

This is why I don't understand why it is so popular to the male audience

If you are still proud about that comment you made to me don't apologize

EDIT: The main part of my comment was supposed to be a compliment NOT a insult in anyway.
But if you take what I said as a insult take it as a insult take as much offense to it as possible, because you know what? People like you that talk to people like before make me sick, for people to be arguing over something so trivial as this is a waste of our time.
But if you feel so impacted by me saying something I found harmless and had no spite on it that you just HAD reply like that you are clearly picking up every piece of my comment and growing away the nice ones so what it shows that you can't hold anything in you but hate to others who don't understand things you do.
I WILL BE WAITING FOR A APOLOGY until then I will continue believing you cannot keep happiness instead you have to hold anger, all I need to know that you are more open minded to others positive feedback is one word at the least and that is "sorry"

(PS: I don't see why you had to be rude about your comment, doesn't MLP teach tolerance? USE IT)
(PPS: don't reply if your going to be so rude/smug/snide about it by telling a complete stranger on the internet something that is supposed to make you look dominant or superior to them)
(PPPS: this is not meant to offend anyone, let's keep it that way)
Willemwallaby Featured By Owner Sep 16, 2014
VII is pretty busy, so I'll weigh in, I guess… being a "brony" and all.

It really doesn't matter who the show was "created" for, if others enjoy it.  Sushi was originally created by Japanese, for Japanese consumption, but that doesn't stop me from enjoying it.  Just as there are others who question my lust for the taste of raw fish, there will be others, like yourself, who question WHY someone for whom MLP was not originally created could possibly like it.  Tom and Jerry was created to entertain children, so why do adults watch it?  Same with pretty much every (successful) animated program out there…  the ones created solely for little kids wither and die before too long.

When Faust <hallowed be thy name> retooled the MLP franchise, she built it upon the premise that the show would be more successful if it appealed to a wider audience (just like pretty much EVERY successful animated or live action film/ book/ product out there).  The original label has stuck if only for the fact that the target demographic has more to do with the TOYS than the show itself.  Lets not forget that Hasbro is in the business of selling TOYS, first and foremost…

I have been an animation fan for most of my life (even after a certain corporate mouse screwed me and the rest of the Florida animation staff over), and this is a pretty solid formula for a successful series.  Is it any surprise that a show designed by its creator to have broad appeal, in fact HAS broad appeal?

A better question to ask is "Why not?"

And by the way, I haven't seen much in the way of "tolerance" promoted by MLP.  When a problem comes up, they don't "tolerate" it.  They use the magic of friendship (and occasionally some sparkly accessories) to stomp it into the ground.  :)
Conga-Heli Featured By Owner Sep 17, 2014
Thank you for posting a long meaningful comment I understand somemore things about why people like MLP, thanks to people like you that don't just instantly throw a tantrum or try to seem "better" than the other I now understand better why people like MLP.

I'm still on the more disliking side of MLP just because I've been through some (rather sparkly) sh%t because hardcore-MLP lovers.... Not that I hate all bronys or dispize the show I just will never understand why so many people like it

Oh well I guess where there is a spark there is destined to be a fire, I guess this fire became a wildfire...

Thanks for the meaningful comment and have a nice day, week or whatever! :)
Willemwallaby Featured By Owner Sep 23, 2014
Wherever there are fans, you will find zealots.  There are Patriots fans who tailgate, and there are fans that show up to the game wearing nothing but body paint.  And just as there are those who simply can't get into football, there will be those who don't "get" the appeal of MLP.  Im not an evangelist for the show, but I make no effort to conceal my love for it.  I find it impossible not to love something that inspires so many people to make so many beautiful things.
Conga-Heli Featured By Owner Sep 24, 2014
Ok, and just saying not to be a complete jerk, when you said sushi was made for japan it was just made to be eaten but I get what you were saying
VIIStar Featured By Owner Sep 4, 2014
hm, people like things that you don't and you don't understand why?  I bet that's never happened before.  :SnarkClap: 
akatsukiGALAXY Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist

VIIStar Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2014
