Sweetie Belle - Custom G4 My Little Pony by shearx Sweetie Belle - Custom G4 My Little Pony by shearx
So... while waiting for my latest commission to pay, I had a bit of free time...

Using that free time, I started and finished Sweetie Belle! She was the last of the cutie mark crusaders that I had yet to complete, and she turned out great.

Pretty sure this is one of the faster customs I've been able to churn out, but it certainly helps that I didn't have to paint a cutie mark, change the body color, paint the eyes, or craft some sort of accessory.. However, I did have to repaint her tail, as after I put on the gloss coat some of the paint started to run strangely.. this required a complete sanding and repaint.. quite annoying =.=


-----====-----

EDIT: Wow I can't believe this has jumped to my most popular custom, even above the S2 Luna :O

Thanks for your support and comments people! :D

I just have one question though. How on earth did you get the tail to stay in place like that when sculpting it onto the figure? I'm trying to make my own custom, and that's one thing I'm having trouble with. DX

I use a 1/8 inch dowel that's about an inch or so long, tapered to a point. the fat end sticks out of the body, and serves as an anchor for the clay.
