At long last! (Now with alternate backdrop!
Alicorn Twilight Sparkle is finished. I tracked a lot of statistics and took many pictures as I went through the crafting process - I'm planning on creating a guide detailing how I came to the finished product here, for better or worse. I always found them entertaining and informative when I would stumble across them here, so at the very least I will do it for me, but I do hope that I can help others to jump the hurdles of my mistakes at least a little bit as well.
Some basic info:
Twilight stands about 5 inches tall, 5 inches long, with a 6 inch wingspan. She was made from Super Sculpey Firm with wire armature and tinfoil bulking, acrylics, and matte finish. This took 33 hours sculpting, 12 hours sanding, and 19 hours painting (fo' reals). It seems like an insane amount of time (it was and it felt it) but I tried really hard to do my best and not rush things, just to see how good I could get it.
