“I'm just a guy from Slovenia doing pony sculptures. My sculpting experience started somewhere in April 2012. Since then, I couldn't stop and I'm trying to get better and better - especially the details on clothes.”>How did you get into pony-sculpting?
“Well it all started when i discovered My little pony: Friendship is magic somewhere in 2011. since then i tried to do random art about ponies, but about a year later i found some clay that was in my closet for about 2 years. Then i tought...why not make discord statue from the episode and so i did, later i did Princess Luna...and then i couldn't stop.”>Tools of the trade?
“My favorites are Super Sculpey, exacto knife and a needle.”>How many ponies have you sculpted?
“I've made 21 so far. I gave 3 of them away to my friends and I'm working on 3 new ones at this moment.”>What's the most difficult part of the process for you?
“The hardest thing is the painting, especially the smaller parts. ”>What about your most difficult sculpture?
“Viking Celestia.”>Favorite and least favorite projects?
“My favorite are the Gothic pony series i will be doing. I only have two of them now. I also like Pony Mercury. I don't really have the least favorite one.”>Have you sold any of your ponies?
“Not yet, but i was thinking about selling some in summer vacation. ”>What's your next big endeavor?
“I still want to do mane6 in gothic style, maybe one more viking pony and the other projects i have in my mind.”>Do you have any tips for someone who'd like to try pony-sculpting?
“The first thing is to find the best material that you think is okay. I started sculpting them from clay and I knew that clay wasn't really my favorite, so I tried Super Sculpey and I've been making sculptures from Super Sculpey since then. Also, you need to practice. You can't really do a good sculpture without practice. If the area is not smoothed try to use sanding paper - it alwas helps - but don't be to hard on the sculpture, or it will break (depends on the material you are using). You can use an exacto knife to smooth some of the little details, too.”>Aaaaand....best pony?
“I like all of them, but I like Luna a little bit more.”
