I'd like to present to everyone a Equestria Girls Mini version of G3 Minty, one of the more popular characters from the previous generation.
This is a long time coming in more ways than one. While I kinda psyched myself out on following through with this figure last summer, if you notice, the hair is from EqG Sweetie Drops. I had been contemplating using her hair for Minty from as far back as the Funko vinyl figures due to the mint candy style swirls. I'll say that this project ran through tons of problems ranging from being thwarted by modeling putty to a few bad cuts to color indecision to the paint itself. Craft paint has its positives and negatives but let me tell you that you might be firmly in the negatives for some projects when the white paint--which was an actual miniature paint--wound up being the easiest paint to use.
I've been doing miniature painting in the recent months so I'm sure my painting skill is higher now than when I started but I just want to be able to say I'm glad I'm done. I can still work on other things later. I messed up the leg mod on a tester figure so I backed off from trying it with Minty but might attempt in the future. I'll also point out that I didn't do a cutie mark on her face. Partially due to difficulty but I also don't like the aesthetic of it. And I complained elsewhere about the varnish coat not behaving.
Now to slowly get back in gear with various TF & MLP customs. Including a few admittedly daunting projects.
