Celestia My Little Pony FiM Sculpture by Blackout-Comix Celestia My Little Pony FiM Sculpture by Blackout-Comix
Well I finally got around to painting Celestia.

She was a ton of work, but I'm pretty satisfied with her. She was a massive undertaking and I learned a lot from sculpting her.

She stands about 10inches tall and is made from a combination of Super Sculpey and Fimo puppen clay.

This is the only sculpture I've ever made using a full armature.

Tutorials on how I made her start here: blackout-comix.deviantart.com/…

She is a gift to :iconwhitedove-creations: as a way of saying thank you for all the plushies.

Let me know what you think in the comments.

Any chance you accept point commissions for a pony sculpture...? .-.

she's an absolute treat to look at, and i find myself appreciating sculptures so much more when i get to see the incredible amount of hard work and dedication it takes to make them. The WIP tutorials were really inspiring! and the final product is basically flawless. Love it!

Very very impressive, especially after reading all those WIP tutorials. I had no idea that much work was put into sculptures and I may want to try something like this some day.

That means a lot coming from an artist as talented as yourself. :)

If you'd like any tips on what clay to use or where to begin I'm always available to help.

OH CRAP!  I missed this one in my inbox!!  :icondragonmanplz:  I didn't even know she was finished for a whole week!

Well anyways..............OMGSOAMAZING!!!!!!!  :iconiloveitplz:  Best Celestia sculpture I have seen thus far!  It looks just like her like she came straight out of the show in 3D form.  The wings I think are my favorite part and the method you used to make them was very well thought up too.  :nod:

Well once again you've proven to us just how amazing you are at this and I am very pleased with the results!!  :nod:  Sorry again that I commented late but it's a good thing I found it eventually.  :3

It's alright. :)

I'm glad to hear you like her. She was a lot of work and I'm just glad to have her done.

WhiteDove's been bugging me for Months to finish her and I finally got around to it.

Was a bit disappointed she didn't make EQD, but oh well. That's life I guess. :)

I really tried to make her as show accurate as possible and I think I got pretty close. I might make another one in the future, but I want to get better before I attempt her again.

Oh, she didn't?  Eh, weird indeed, but I don't always make it to EqD either.

Sounds like a plan.  Doing things over is good cuz it can help you improve a tremendous amount.  :nod:

Gorgeous.

Let me ask you, how do you paint your sculpts? My paint job always comes out a little lumpy.

:iconblackout-comix:
Blackout-Comix Featured By Owner Aug 27, 2013
The secret is dilute paint and lots of coats. Don't try to paint your sculpts in one go. Dilute it down to the consistency of cream and paint a thin coat, wait, and paint another coat. Keep painting coats until it finally covers. Takes forever, but the results look good. :)

Dude, this is amazing!  Have you thought about adding a light touch of glitter to her mane and tail to get complete show accuracy?

:iconblackout-comix:
Blackout-Comix Featured By Owner Aug 24, 2013
I don't think I could mimic the soft sparkle of the show. Glitter has a hard light sparkle, but Celestia's sparkles are much fainter than glitter would be. Additionally, her sparkles are star shaped and glitter would be circular. I painted some fainter sparkles on the figure, but they are not very visible in the picture. Up close you can see them well.

I'll keep my eyes peeled for better options in the future. :)

If you google/ebay nail art glitter, you'll get a lot of different varieties and types.  I was thinking that a sort of shimmer spray type effect would work well too, giving it a slight sparkle, but not being overwhelming. I've heard good things about the Martha Stewart glitter finish spray that gives a slight holo effect. 

Either way, she looks beautiful!
