Ditto skybreeze. I love his eyes especially. He's great all over, though. I like the varigations in the hair.
Its so sweet that you've done Cupcake for your mom. And her symbol looks amazing!Back in May I decided I wanted to try customizing some g4 ponys, so I bought a big bag of slightly baity ones on eBay. Mostly the bodies are in good shape, lots of haircuts, kinda dirty and one has been chewed on...a lot, poor thing.

So I thought I’d make a thread that I can add to as I customize them rather than a separate thread for each pony I make
Well I finally got one done!
Meet Cupcake my first custom pony (technically she’s my second but the other is still waiting for hair, I ordered a rerooting tool but it’s taking forever to ship :/ )

She is a birthday gift for my mom who is totally NOT a pony person but she likes Fluttershy because her colors remind her of these cupcakes her mom used to bring home. When I was cleaning up the ponys she saw this one and asked if I would customize it for her
I forgot to take a pic before I started, but she looked pretty much like the other one here except her tail was half cut off and for some reason her hair was sticky and would not come clean. I ended up brushing some baby powder into it which took care of the sticky and made her hair a slightly lighter pink

Thank you! She sits happily on her dresser nowPluto and Cupcake are both nicely done and the story behind Cupcake is really sweet
(side note, IMO the episode "Power Ponies" needs to be renamed and every mention of the team redubbed with a new name. In the context of a Justice League/Avengers pastiche, that name is misleading and lazy)
I love her soooo much!Now that she has arrived safely to her new home with Tak I can share some pictures of my latest custom Meet Trixi Treat (we had quite a photo shoot before I sent her so this may be too many photos >_< lol). She started out as this Rarity View attachment 34114 and here she is now View attachment 34118View attachment 34119View attachment 34116View attachment 34115View attachment 34120View attachment 34123View attachment 34122View attachment 34125View attachment 34121
And a pic sharing her candy with Pluto too!

You must teach me your ways of painting with no visible brush strokes. Funny you say that because the Rit dye I just used for my Sea Pony can get very dark exactly the same as what you did. Hence mainly why I thought it was Rit. ;p@ladyaquitaine Thank you!
@Skybreeze I actually painted her body with acrylics cause I couldn’t find a good purple shade of Rit dye ^^; but I’m glad you thought she looked dyed! That means I didn’t leave noticeable brush strokes
And thanks so much! Those webs were pretty tiny lol. I did have trouble with her tail though, couldn’t get it to hold a curl no matter what I did
Haha very watered down paint and something like 16 layers is my secret! Really? I didn’t actually try it out, when I was looking in stores the purples I saw looked either too light or more of a reddish purple than I wanted so I did paint instead. Good to know they can get darker for future ponys though!You must teach me your ways of painting with no visible brush strokes.
