A big thanks to everyone that entered our first weekly giveaway - the lucky winner will be receiving a custom pony sculpt from :iconmadponyscientist:!

and our first week's winner is:  :iconr41n80wd45h96: - Congratulations!!!

I'd also like to throw out a big welcome to all you new watchers! We'll continue hosting one ponysculpt giveaway a week into early summer, so there are plenty more opportunities to win! And that leads nicely into our next pony giveaway, featuring:

:iconkurochanwen: kurochanwen!

**ENTERING TO WIN? Post your entry link in the comments on THIS JOURNAL ENTRY only! If you post your entry on the home page, we might not get it.**
Skip down to the bottom for all entry details and rules.




Kurochanwen is fresh talent in the world of pony-sculpting. In December, kurochanwen started sculpting with two simple pony prototypes. It's been a few months since then, and KW has not only produced some lively and ambitious sculptures, but also started developing a distinct and expressive style.

What led you to start pony-sculpting?

:iconkurochanwen: "I always look around EQD, and I see all this amazing pony sculpture (most of which is in [ponysculptors]), and for some unknown reason, I just wanted to try sculpting. It took around 4 months to get the courage together and start buying the materials and sculpt."

What do you sculpt with?

:iconkurochanwen: "Since I'm still new on sculpting, I don't have any favorite materials - I haven't tried them all! But for now my main arsenal is Super Sculpey + Apoxie Sculpt and really basic sculpting tools."



What's the most challenging part of the pony-making process?

:iconkurochanwen: "My biggest challenge is painting. I still haven't found the technique for it."

What was your favorite project so far?

:iconkurochanwen: "Fluffle Puff gala dress. It was the least challenging, and it just came out perfect."



Any big plans for future sculpting projects?

:iconkurochanwen: "One of the big ones in my mind right now is sculpt a moving sculpture, using ball joints like a figurine."

Do you have any advice for new sculptors?

:iconkurochanwen: "Learn to make a proper armature and decent bulking. Those are the foundation, and from there it's just patience and imagination."



Do you sell custom ponies?

:iconkurochanwen: "Just ask me!"

Last question: Best pony?

:iconkurochanwen: "That would be :iconraritysmile2plz:, the reason being her voice actress, Tabitha [St. Germain], just does an amazing job. I just adore her!!"



So you want free pony? Have some -
