It took me over nearly three months to finish, but my custom is finally finished!
Here's RC, my first custom pony.
Description (copy-pasted from DA)
: Her color scheme was inspired by Masquerade, but they have a special significance to me. I named her RC. Not only does she share my first and last initials, but there is also a special type of electrical circuit known as an RC circuit. The colors of her mane and tail represent the schools that I have been to. The green represents my high school and the blue represents my junior college. She also has a maroon ribbon on her tail to represent my alma mater. I recently graduated with a bachelor's degree in electrical engineering, so I decided that a light bulb with a lightning bolt would be a perfect cutie mark.
Also a close up of her cutie mark:
I cannot express how happy I am that she's finally finished. When I first started painting her, I didn't think she'd ever look right. Even worse, was when I had to make two attempts at her cutie mark because my paint brushes weren't the appropriate size. I have nothing but the highest respect for those who do this very often. It is most definitely more difficult than it looks.
I cannot begin to express my thanks for those who answered the many questions I had throughout this process. You guys are so awesome!
