+commission+ Tortoise Pony by ImmortalPanda +commission+ Tortoise Pony by ImmortalPanda
baby_gusty submitted this girl's design to me and asked me to make it to her specifications. I had a rough time with it, but the payoff was worth it! It took me a very long time to finish this one, because I was constantly re-sculpting things to get them to look right! Despite my frustration with the sculpting at first, I'm VERY proud of how this came out, it was certainly a challenge!

She was made from a Wysteria base, her shell and leg scales were sculpted with Apoxie sculpt, and her hair and snout were done with Super Sculpey. She was painted with a mixture of Golden Artist acrylics, and Delta Ceramcoat craft acrylics. All gradients were painted by hand with a brush Smile

I have no idea how many hours this took me. so don't ask. LOL

Tortoise design and pony belong to baby_gusty on the MLPArena
Artwork and photograph are by ImmortalPanda

This is a custom Pony, not a Hasbro Design. I am NOT a designer for Hasbro. This is fanart, plz don't sue me!

This is fabulous! I would love to see one of these on a g4...Now that would be a challenge. Those guys are little! Anyway how much would a custom one like this be?

I actually have plans to make a g4 one at some point. I have a g1 baby version that I'm working on that just needs paint, but I've been soooo busy I haven't had a chance to work on him >.<

For a g3 size, it's 100 USD plus shipping. a g1 baby size is 80 and I'm not even sure what to charge for a g4 version yet. I'd have to make it first...lol
