And here she is, done and with her proper wings. Man, this is the MOST complicated custom I ever attempted and probably will not be ever doing again unless I decide my skill level has risen significantly.
She is a molded hair Celestia body with hooves and neck extended with milliput, with a Fluttershy head glued on and with the added bits done in Milliput. It involved massive amounts of sanding, carving and filling in. Her crown growth thing was made with wires and embellished with more milliput.
Her wings are made from ironed plastic bags, a technique which was shown to me on Ponychan /merch/ which I have to say gives it the effect I really wanted. It’s translucent rather than completely clear, it’s thin but definitely not fragile and it was super easy to cut out the holes and shape with it cracking or tearing like the attempts I tried with the clear plastic.
Anyways, I’m happy to be done with her and I’ll take a pic of all my canon Alicorn customs after I finish my Fausticorn custom. Yes.

aaaand, my hand is now a whither claw. But I finished it. sorry about all the non-art posts, hope this makes up for it. God she is such an cool character…
Ok, serious question actually, I want to do one like this of discord, and one of nightmare moon, and sell prints of all three at bronycon in june, along with the mane 6 prints I’m doing. the question is, is this print quality? and I’m not praise hunting here, I’ve been starring at this for the past couple of days, I really can’t tell.
so, if this were a reasonably priced print, would you buy it?
also, would you buy it in a set with discord and nightmare moon?
Celestia, i have way to much on my plate…
I’d buy it!
pinkie pie- white. bottom heavy,fairly tall, TONS of hair. just jolly and bouncy and cute.
rainbow dash- african american. short, sleek, aerodynamic. wants to be a pilot, but for now kicks ass on rollerblades. her hair is a mohawk that emulates her mane
applejack- white. ‘sturdy’ is what I was going for, not sure if I succeeded. farmer’s tan and tons of freckles.
twilight sparkle- indian. scrawny, angular, petite. super symmetrical, has a strong, somewhat masculine jawline.
fluttershy- white, no-op mtf. moved to ponyville to get a new start for herself. found rainbow dash along the way, who is the only one who knows she’s mtf. knows her friends won’t care but it’s still hard telling people. very tall, awkward, wears ill-fitting jumpers and oversized skirts.
rarity- asian, short, plus-sized. big inspiration for her was miss piggy. got sick of not being able to find clothes her size so she started her own fashion line of high end clothes for plus sized ladies.
Wait, I didn’t reblog this already???
