Chestnuts' Custom: Fluttershy is Best Pony
Commissioned through Etsy, my second and personal favourite Fluttershy custom. This time the client asked for her wings to be up and her to be facing forward, so I was able to try painting the cutie mark and do the eyes a little different.
I may be making a third Flutters soon, so watch this space!

Chestnuts' Custom: Repaints are Copouts
Colt America, my second pony avenger. Five point stars are pretty hard to paint, let alone sculpt but in the end I'm happy with how the two stars on him turned out. I was originally planning to make the shield removable but I sacked that in the end for two reasons, first it left a big hole in his leg, which would have had to be pretty big to account for extra thickness once both parts were varnished and second, once varnished if the shield was left in for, I'd give it about a week it'd be pretty much stuck in and if you did pull it out, I reckon you'd get varnish and paint stuck to the wrong bits so I figured it was best stuck in as I didn't want him without his shield!
