Squirtle Ponymon Update by ChibiSilverWings Squirtle Ponymon Update by ChibiSilverWings
Errr... well after much deliberation, I added a bit to my old Squirtle pony. A lot of people were asking why she had no shell, so I finally just added one and a little bit of an underbelly for her. Hopefully this doesn't disapoint too many people who liked the original design D: Anyway... she'll be up on etsy in a few weeks.

I take orders for pony customs at 40 dollars each, note me if you're interested.

Yes! Much more recognizable as Squirtle, and very cute!

Still love the curls and tail--and the shell actually works really well with the mane/hair! I like this version a lot!

Thanks cd~ When I made the hair it was meant to look the color of her shell so thankfully I sorta already had matching colors X3

I also meant the placement, so it looked right from the top and rear--it occurs to me that part of the challenge of sculpture-art is, of course, making it look amazing from all angles and not just in front of it....

You're always so kind <3 thank you! In this one I think Ideally I'd have wanted the shell a little bit more towards the center of her back, but since I make it after the hair had already been baked in place, I had to have it a bit further back. Though really I don't think the result is bad, I like it :D

I thought you might have felt that way, since the shell as it now is has to be back on her haunches, but it actually works well the way it is, as you say!

Does the double-baking of a work when you alter it like this do any harm at all?

Not that I'd noticed here. This is the first time I'd done it with a pony. I baked Discord in two sets of bakings, and some of the ponys have been baked three times! It's a matter of getting the time down so you don't burn or melt or stress anything too much.
