I was commissioned to make a My Little Pony chess set. This set was commissioned by
and they choose the pieces and in some cases the poses. I designed some of the poses too though. This is the second piece of 32. This will probably take me about 6-7 months, so stay tuned to see the full thing in the end haha.
They asked me to use an adult version of Diamond Tiara so her design in this is a bit different than the show.
I choose the pose and expression on this one. Up in the top corner there, you can see both the black side rooks. Yay!
The crown was a bit of a challenge. I think it looks cool in the end but it was a challenge to bend and paint the copper wire I used XD it doesn't have the little balls on the tops of the crown spikes because I fear they'd just break off or not stick on. I think the crown looks functionally like hers and I'm happy with it. That hair gave me a LOT of trouble. Next one with stripes of white in the hair (Flim and Flam) I'm going to just use paint for the stripes on instead of colored sculpey clay XD
