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?
"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?
"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?
"My biggest challenge is painting. I still haven't found the technique for it."
What was your favorite project so far?
"Fluffle Puff gala dress. It was the least challenging, and it just came out perfect."
Any big plans for future sculpting projects?
"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?
"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?
"Just ask me!"
Last question: Best pony?
"That would be , the reason being her voice actress, Tabitha [St. Germain], just does an amazing job. I just adore her!!"
