:Commission: Change is so Sweet-ie 1 by dustysculptures :Commission: Change is so Sweet-ie 1 by dustysculptures

Commission for :iconwandererd:

Sweetie belle! Well not exactly as you might know her. If you've ever read The Sweetie Chronicles (found here:fav.me/d4fr35p) you'd know that Sweetie is undergoing her metamorphosis into adulthood (in more ways than one :3) in the most unusual of ways; by traveling through popular fanfictions. If that doesn't make you go that sounds intriguing, WTF?!, or gee golly that sure sounds dandy then I'm... sure something else will do that to you.

Sweetie is under going a transformation here (not unlike that of Mystique from X-men) as she changes from her previous disguise to fight her unknown enemy with her new found magical power. The details of what is going on and what's happening are, frankly, beyond me but I think anything more would be spoilers :3

That was at the request of the commissioner, probably having to do with the context of the fanfic but beyond that, I don't know~

It's amazing how you used what I assume is moss to give a grass effect.

Thank you! Its a really cool material called 'static grass'. It actually uses static electricity to standup on end like real grass~ :XD: its crazy!

Very nice, and unique one, I really love the facial expression, and grimmace. You rarely ever see her look angry.

I might have to read that fanfic sometime. ;)

Thanks!

This is such an unusual concept, and you really did a great job turning it into a sculpture. Her pose and expression are great, and the little details (the stones and the grass) turned out very good as well.

Yeah it took me a couple of back and forths to wrap my head around the concept of her 'transformation'~ and even more to come up with a way to make it real. Its been awhile since I worked with those materials so it was nice getting back to them.

Thank ya!

It's important to rotate the marshmallow slowly over the flame to prevent burning. What you're going for is a nice, golden brown. If the marshmallow ignites, you may have had it too close to the flames. Hope this helps.

Oh I was wondering why I got such uneven crisping. The black crunch does give it a nice texture, however carcinogenic burnt food can be.
I'm certainly hoping to upgrade to the bigger marsh-mare-lows, but they can be quite the -Rarity- where I'm from. Thanks for the advice! :3

Also-- gag comment aside, this is stunning. I was going to write a critique until I noticed my watchers will be notified. I don't want to bother my watchers particularly. You've captured a tremendous amount of personality and movement with Sweetie Belle's tail, pose and facial expression-- the way she appears to have spun around to go on the offense or face an opponent. It communicates not only what's going on but what was just going on. Her hoof poised over the book threateningly like a finger on a trigger. Every little detail comes together perfectly. I could only hope to inject such personality in my work somehow. I am envious of your talents again and again.

Rocks, Sand, Tacky glue, and some bluegray paint. Lots of patience

Rocks and Sand are used in model train sets :3
