My Little Pony-dragons: Spike by HowManyDragons My Little Pony-dragons: Spike by HowManyDragons
I know, I know, every time people see the ponies done up as dragons, they say, "Hey, you should make Spike as a pony." SO I DID! Of course, he has no cutie mark - Spike is just a baby dragon-pony, after all!

I think I did pretty well, considering this was my first-ever attempt at sculpting an actual pony. Most of the weirdness is concentrated in the head - I think he looks like a pug or a Boston terrier when viewed from the left, which is not fantastic. And I tried, but just could not commit to painting those giant-sized pony eyes. I was weak. D: I am super happy with how the mane and tail turned out, though.

Spike has been sold.

May I ask how much you sold this for? 
And how tall is it?

Sorry, I'm trying to sell my own sculptures and I need a general idea of how others do it.
If that's okay.. c:

He's probably around 2-2.5 inches tall, and he probably sold for around $30-35? It's been a while, so I don't really remember.

Wow this is beautiful, it's really nice to see such expressive eyes and his head is so smooth and his body just flows nicely
He looks so cute
I would love to see more sculptures in this style

Aw, thank you so much! I'll have to try the cartoony eyes again sometime, but maybe in clay instead of paint. You wouldn't believe how long it took me to paint those eyes. xD

Eyes can be a pain

I was actually thinking he looks rather like Toothless, actually. Oddly cute.

Yeah, he's got a bit of Toothless in the face, I think. It was unintentional! xD
