And to wrap up woodwork for the year, here's one more pony. Big Mac, take us home.
Big Mac is a bloodwood piece for
who is an awesome person indeed.
He's a little too flat for me; the thing I liked most about Big Mac I was his roundness, and the Big Mac in the show has always struck me as having very large round muscles rather than lean muscle. But, work wise, he was a fun pony to do. The unkempt look around the hooves is a lot of fun; I enjoy feathering wood on things like feet and wings. And his mane-no matter how messy it is it just looks better and better. So much more...satisfying to hack away at the hair with the scissors instead of spend time on styling it and still end up with what I want. And accessories are always fun, so I had a pretty good time working on his horse collar.
A long-in-wait shoutout to Delta105: thanks for the comment on the legs over on Big Mac I; I think they look better longer, too (although I might have overshot just a little bit). But it's been faun pony, and now I want to go eat some McIntosh apples. Eyup.
