Well she's done and just in time for the launch of the game.
I've run out of space to have the figure sitting on my shelf. Anybody who wants to buy it, just message me with your offer and we'll haggle. (I'm just getting tired of dealing with eBay).
I was excited to review the new Kid Icarus: Uprising(check it out here!)
so while I was waiting for it to launch ... I made this and this
For some reason I prefer to design the MLP character as if they are cosplaying instead of making a "ponified" version of the target character. When thinking who would work best as Pit from Kid Icarus ... naturally it was Rainbow Dash.
Also she has the most interesting mane so reworking her hair to match Pit's and then painting it her color scheme worked out well I think.
I was able to keep the head so it still can turn side to side and she sort of pivots at the tail so you can alter her angle a bit.
This was kind of fun ... I wonder what other pony cosplaying as a videogame character I will come up with next? Any suggestions out there?
