W.I.P. Mini Rainbow Dash by MoogleGurl W.I.P. Mini Rainbow Dash by MoogleGurl
A miniature Rainbow Dash sculpture I worked on last night.
She is 1.5 inches tall from ear tip to front hoof. I had not
sculpted since May and felt the drive to make something.
Hope you like! Critiques are welcome as I know I still have
a ways to go with clay work, advice is always welcome.

EDIT: Here is the finished sculpture!

This is a beautiful piece of work, and I see a great sculpture and a great artist, but perhaps (okay, if i offend you in any way, im sorry. first time writing a critique) you could have made the forehead slightly larger to bring out the look and style of the mane more. If you are aiming for show style, you can start putting you ears more on the sides of the head. the mane is kind of flat looking, and if it was more poofed it would look greatly similar to the actual rainbow dash. you could make the tail smoother so it is not as shaggy, and in my opinion the wings should be a bit smaller. Now, once again, sorry if you are offended, but this is stuff to take into consideration and become a better artist as you go along.
What do you think?

This is pretty awesome! Making miniature figures must be tricky getting all the little details correct and such! I aim myself to create parts for Gundams sometime so would be interesting to know how you approached making this superb model! Very nice detailing and layering with the hair. Hope to see it completed :)

Looks like the beginnings of a my little pony. I like the sculpture and the pose of the horse. I think once its colored it could be one of your greatest creations

Ah! Your own tutorial on making ponies with clay would be wonderful. I was going to have a go myself and make them as a Christmas gift for my friend. It would be so nice to see how someone else does it first before I dive nose in, I'm really strapped on cash so redo's aren't exactly on my list.

I may do custom OC ponies as commissions, but they would be a bit expensive to make. I have 3 of my own so I do want to make figures of them >w<! ( well 4 if you count my pony-sona)

There is a clay tool that smooths out the bumps that you sometimes get while working with clay, especially if it's like sculpy or the like. It's not TOO expensive I dont' believe maybe 10-15$? And it comes with extra tools like one for detailing ect. That would be my only critique otherwise she looks AMAZING AND SO ADORABLE! You're making me want to work with clay again > u <;;

This is adorable! But I'm curious. Doe she have any wires in her? I can just imagine pressure on those hind legs and one of them popping off- a terrible fate for a lot of clay animals. I cannot wait to see the finished product!

She has studs in her legs, ears, tail, and wings for support but no wire frame all together. just pieced by shaped clay :3

Oh my... So tiny and cute~ I like how it is, but you could add more "lines" on the tail, make it more voluminous *--*

Will you be selling here when you finish? *--*

I've posted about it on my blog when you started with the pink promo and my friends loved it, but some just saw it too late and didn't get. I would like to know if you'll do more, so I'll post on my blog and notify everyone ^_^
