Raise your hand if you grew up loving My Little Pony? I don’t know about you but getting my first Pony at Christmas was very memorable and I adored that little horse. It was almost as good as getting an actual pony… ok maybe not that good but pretty dang good! I’ve been obsessed with Ponys pretty much fo forever and have been meaning to share this topper tutorial for some time with you.
Now this is a long tutorial because there are some repetitive parts. I tried to incorporate just enough that you can follow along but not so much that you become horribly bored haha! You’re welcome. Also, if you’re interested in any of the tools or materials that I use in this tutorial, you can purchase them from my Amazon store. I do get a small cut of those sales which helps me to maintain my blog and bring more fabulous tutorials to you
One of the things I mention in the video is that it’s really helpful if you have a toy to actually reference. You can pick up a cheap pony toy at Target for a few bucks. If not, I included some photos of the finished pony here from all angles so that it can help you with proportions.
One of the most challenging parts to this tutorial was getting Rainbow Dash’s features correct. I actually did her head twice but only showed it once in the video. Proof that a little practice goes a long way, even for a seasoned sculptor.
