Forward, March! by Lykaios-Avery Forward, March! by Lykaios-Avery
Rise, my little ponies! We march at dawn! (Scary thing is, this isn't all of them. This is just the number of ponies that I could fit on the chair, or were complete enough to stand on their own. There's a filly Luna that I'm re-making that hasn't progressed this far yet, and some other's that were just cut).

Most of them don't have tails yet (the little Rainbow Dash on the far left is the only one that's complete). I'll be picking those up from my friend tomorrow (I bought her tickets to 3 different anime conventions last year, so we made a deal that she'd stuff ponies and mochi in exchange). Having all of these tail-less ponies really made me realize how much the tails work as a counter-weight/balance to the heads. The ponies often want to tip forward at the slightest nudge when they don't have tails (except Scootaloo, she's pretty well grounded due to her shape).

Twilight and Scootaloo actually have their manes and tails in a bag off-screen; I just haven't attached them yet. However, Twilight's horn seems to have joined half of her face and half of Daring's face in the club of pony-pieces-that-mysteriously-dissapeared-and-must-be-remade (I'll find them someday).

The Daring Dos will remaing naked until I get the money that I need to buy enough fabric to make their clothes (it's odd, the fund transfer was done on Tueday, but the money still hasn't shown up in my account yet).

3 of them are definitely trades, 3 of them are commissions, 1 might go to GalaCon with me if the original trader doesn't want her anymore, and 1 I might put up for sale online (if it's worth it, though I'm starting to doubt that she'd fetch much).

After I finish this batch, the majority of my focus will be on finishing 20 ponies for GalaCon in August, and 3 more that are commissions that I'll be hand delivering while in Europe. I'm not entirely sure if I can do it, but I'm going to try. My hopes are to have 2 of each of Octavia, Vinyl, Derpy, Daring and the main 6. What am I getting myself into... Wish me luck!

These are actually the only two Daring Dos that I've made.

I get a lot of Rainbow Dash requests though.

I just noticed with the small rainbow dashes, one has red where the other's yellow is. Whats up with that?
Reply
:iconlykaios-avery:
Lykaios-Avery Featured By Owner May 25, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
It's because of the way that I cut the pieces out. I cut out the pieces for both of them at the same time, and the orange pieces aren't symmetrical, so the Rainbows end up being mirror versions of each other. The bigger ones were cut at different times, so they follow my standard left to right red-orange-yellow color order (based on the most common color order in screenshots of Rainbow from the front).

People are always sending my Notes saying "You did the hair wrong!" or "That's the wrong order!" (regardless of which order I've used), or "There's 3 color not 2!" because they don't realize that the third color is on the other side, or that the order should be yellow-orange-red-orange-yellow (there's no pleasing everyone...).

I hope that clears things up.

Thank you! I'm glad you like them.

All of these ponies except for one of the small Rainbow Dashes are spoken for as either commissions or trades. I may put the small one up for sale, but I worry that she'll sell for less than I'm hoping. I'm not sure what the market is like.

Thank you! I did take a leaf out of your book. Well, I think it was you. I saw someone who pleated the pegasus wings instead of top stitching them and I think they were using your pattern (well, it looked like your design). So I decided to give it a shot. It's a nice look.

The mare pattern I did has an option for pleated wings, so it might have been. I'm glad it worked out for you. :)

I look forward to perhaps making you a pony one day! If it helps, I'm happy to work out payment plans too, since I think it's absurd to absolutely expect anyone to pay the whole amount upfront.

I explained it in the descrption. Some of them were being stuffed, some of them were in a bag and I hadn't yet attached them, and some have the tail but it can't be seen due to the angle.

It's funny, she looks angry when you can only see the top half of her head, but I think the expression looks more determined when the whole face is visible.

The base height, not counting the hair and ears, is 13 inches and 9 inches. I also make fillies that are 6 inches tall (to correspond with the 9 inch mares) but I but have any pictured.
