Princess Luna is Having A Ball - revisited 2 by MadPonyScientist Princess Luna is Having A Ball - revisited 2 by MadPonyScientist
Princess Luna is Having a Ball !! - revisited

So here is a new and improved Princess Luna I just finished.

She now has crystals on her mane and tail and is 12 inches long!! The ball is removable so you can put whatever you want in it's place.

Commissions are OPEN

NOTE : The first person that makes a comment about the beach ball not being perfectly round will be banned!!! Unless you can show me a 6 panel beach ball that you sculpted yourself that is perfectly round. I am dead serious! It is not as easy as it might seem.

Anyway, made by me - MadPonyScientist out of polymer clay and a bunch of hours...

I have a 3" crystal moon. Would it be too big for this sculpture to hold? It's rather heavy.

MadPonyScientist Featured By Owner Oct 14, 2012
ooohhh!!! that would look awesome! it would easily hold that moon. i just tested it to be sure on a larger, solid marble ball that is a little over 3 inches and weighs 4 pounds and it was perfectly fine :)

I'm dying from adorable. The only thing I can think to say (cause last time you asked me to comment a thing you can fix!) is too have the mane splayed out a little bit. Not sure if that was just for beauty reasons or not though :)

I did the mane like this because most people view these pony sculptures from the side and this gives maximum viewing surface to show off the mane and crystals. Of course, naturally a mane and tail would be laying down but Luna's is always flowing and waving even with no wind so I always make it that way to be canon :)

the only time i do Luna and her mane isn't flowing is when i wasn't a good enough sculptor to do it and when she is a filly like that head turner but most of my fillies i still give her the flowing mane.

Thank you for the views! As I thought, a rather intent and fun look on her face! (no beach ball comments!!!! I'm having trouble with the eyes alone on my Luna! So you won't hear me say "bads" about any of your sculpts!)

MadPonyScientist Featured By Owner Oct 14, 2012
don't feel bad. i have trouble with the eyes on ALL of my sculptures. I usually have to do it 3 or 4 times before I have a size and shape I am satisfied. I probably have a tendency to make them larger than they should be as I did on this Luna, but fortunately people don't seem to mind large eyes because their eyes are what makes them the ponies they ate. It took awhile to learn that but if you screw up on the eyes, it will throw off the whole pony and people will point it out to you but if you get the eyes right and make them look really nice then people usually won't even notice imperfections elsewhere. It's pretty much impossible to make them perfect anyways unless you are making a mold and then fine tuning it based on the resin mold, but if you are making one-offs then just do the best you can. I don't do this but maybe this might help, I saw on here a comment from another pony artist and someone commented on her eyes being perfect and what she said is that she draws them lightly with pencil and just erases until they are the perfect shape and then paints them....maybe that would work for you?

Thank you! Going to try the printed paper eyes on this Luna. If its a "Bust", so be it. Actualy sat down and worked the paint on her wings and hair this morning (love "Pearl Ex Micro Pearl" mixed in the various colors!)Hope to finish her this week!

MadPonyScientist Featured By Owner Oct 15, 2012
Yeah, I actually read that you printed the eyes and was wondering how that worked. Do you have any wrinkle effect on the edge of the paper as it bends slightly to the curve of the head? Or is the paper thinner than normal? Or does the coating you put on it soak in enough to make the paper more malleable? Also, can you see the edges of the paper once applied or do they blend in well enough that you don't notice? Just wondering because painting EYES IS always my weakest point and takes forever!

Simple typing paper laid down with watered Elmer's glue. I will edge the final with a very small brush and black acrylic. (oh! first I will seal the paper with "FUTURE"acrylic floor coat.)

This is the most carefree and brilliant sculpt ever.

The ball is well made and the expression on Luna's face is perfect.

Such a cute sculpture! :3 The ball looks nice too and it's great that it's removable! Think of all the other things you could place on top of her hooves! :3

Thank you. Somepony actually suggested something that led me to a different idea that will surely be the cutest pose I have ever made. I am so excited....I hope everypony likes it as much as I think they will!!

Thank you very very much :) Yeah, I knew when I first came up with the idea for the crystals 2 Luna's ago that it was the solution for the stars that I was always searching for because they twinkle in real life but the camera can't capture that.

...the ball isn't square enough, I am disappoint
seriously though, i may not have much sculpting experience, but i know how difficult it is to make something perfectly round.
also, the whole thing is really impressive, the crystals in the mane were a nice touch

Thanks...i have been revising Luna for a long time now and constantly trying to get her mane and tail better and better and the crystals were what was always needed. I first did it 2 Luna's before this and since then someone has already copied my idea so it must be right :)
