Welcome to PonySculptors!

A place for pony sculptures, and the people who create/enjoy them!


All pony sculptors and appreciators are welcome to join. Any pony or character from the show that is sculpted or carved by hand can be shared here. If you're an aspiring pony sculptor or a how-it's-made fan, check out the WIP gallery!

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES



:bulletgreen: What we accept


We accept sculpted and carved figures featuring MLP:FiM characters. Figures can be any type and any material as long as they're crafted by hand.

:bulletyellow: Can I submit customs?


The figure must be original work - if it was made from a pre-existing pony base, such as a toy or 3D print, it will not be accepted into the gallery. (However, the original sculpt would be allowed if submitted by the creator.)

:bulletgreen: Can I submit WIPs?


Yes! Works in progress are accepted and encouraged - it's a great way to learn from each other's work!

:bulletgreen: What about OC's?


Original characters are welcome as long as they are inspired by or stylistically consistent with My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.

:bulletorange: Anything else?


PonySculptors is open to pony fans of all ages. If your sculpture contains mature and/or graphic subject matter, we may choose not to display it in the gallery.

:bulletgreen: Where do I submit?


Submit directly to the folder that says--well, "SUBMIT"--and we'll take it from there.

:bulletorange::bulletorange::bulletorange: This group is intended for made-from-scratch ponies only. As much as we love them, customs and 3D printed works will not be accepted into the gallery.

Is there any requirements for joining?
The group looks neat but I don't sculpt any.

Nope no requirements.
I think the majority of the members in this group don't sculpt so you don't need to worry about that :)

I have a question.

If someone wins one of the raffles but the sculpture never makes it art piece you won....what do you do?

Hm... That's a tough question, I'm afraid. I'll ask the other leaders about it. :)

Wow, all of you are using a polymer clay? Fluttershy frightend Um... I'm using simple wire frame, and white air dry clay. That's amateur?

No, not really. A lot of use polymer clay, but far from all of us. Some use Green stuff, some use air dry clay, some use plastecine, some use wire alone, some use wood, some even stone and other materials. =) Almost any materal can be used for great works) It's just about practice and the medium you are comfortable with.
Polymer clay is just... easy. It's easy to use and allows for great prescition. Not all will agree, though. I know ponies that work with air dry clay and do great stuff.

p.s. you really should try polymer clay, though. For most people, it is the best thing since sliced bread.

Which type of clay do you guys think is best, especially for beginners?

Air dry polymer clay or polymer baking clay?

I know that with air dry polymer clay saves you the trouble of sanding and baking and gives your sculptor a more shiner and softer finish while baking clay gives you extra steps with baking and sanding, but it gives it a more authentic finish at the end.

But still, which do you guys think is better?
