So ... damned ... adorable ... cannot ... ship ... fast ... enough....
As I said, I like the major a lot. Very characterful face and pose. Some minor nitpicks about smooth surfaces aside, the only thing to stand out is the inward curvature of the front legs. Especially the right one, it seems to bend backwards at the wrist. Other than that it?s great work and I?m looking forward to seeing more.
Yeah, thanks! I didn't realize that, but I see it now that you point it out - I guess I treated the leading edge of the foreleg as one arc, and there's no indication of the hoof.
I don?t think that matching the PVCs? proportions is all that desirable. Their scale is nice, but the figures themselves are a bit "meh". Your mayor has more character in her facesculpt alone than those PVCs with their strangely formed heads combined.
Yeah, now that I have them in hand, particularly, the PVCs are fairly lifeless. They're designed to look like generic cute ponies and happen to share some design characteristics with the cartoon characters, and the "baby" aspects of the face sculpts are particularly distracting, while the only concessions to individual personalities seem to be in the number of eyelashes each gets. I wanted the Mayor to match, roughly - but I did use the cartoon eyes, anyway.
Another reason I'm looking forward to your Applebloom and Fluttershy. = )
For everyone else you do I expect to see a corresponding thread over at the Iacon Art Gallery. Or even better a WIP thread.
Wow, Mare the Mayor is awesome. Could you take more pics of her?
She's kind of jankety up close. I do like how the expression turned out, though. = )
