Here's Winterstar! Been trying to get good pics of her for ages now.
I shared these on Patreon the other day, but I wanted to share them here, too, so I can encourage you to sponsor in and support these ponies. Even a dollar helps. Five is great. I'd like to get a little more comfortably above the $400 mark this month.
She started out as a G3 Rarity with really ratty hair and some symbol rubs, but good body color and no staining. Perfect bait pony.
I rehaired her in Sugarplum and Virgin Snow Dollyhair nylon. The Sugarplum has this neat matte texture to it. It was interesting to work with. A little stiffer and a little more "grabby".
She has stars on both sides of her butt.
One is extra sparkly with a big Swarovski right on her patoot.
I think the gazillion tiny stars came out really nicely. She reminds me of G1 Twilight although while I was painting her the similarities in color and theme didn't occur to me.
I just wanted this crazy random scatter of stars and I think I did okay. The trees around her legs were fun to paint.
Love her pearly horn.
My favorite part: she has a little bear on her rear right heel, leaning up to nose at a star.
Winterstar has a backstory! It involves a fallen star and a very large bear and rather a lot of snow. If you want to see it, you can hit up my Patreon. That particular creation is right here.
If you want to signal boost her on Tumblr, here she is!
Thank you, everyone. <3
