Fluttershy Woodwork: Flutterskip by xofox Fluttershy Woodwork: Flutterskip by xofox
Lalalalala...


This Fluttershy Set is a piece for :iconalovnek: made variously of:
Fluttershy, yellowheart
Angel Bunny, holly, and
the stand, pink ivory and walnut.

She's got to be one of my favorite Fluttershy pieces, with a pose after the fashion of Prancing Applejack, since it seems like a lively piece, but with adjustments to the head and leg posing to suggest skipping rather than prancing. Hopefully that comes across.
I also made serious changes to the ears in the model. No longer forward facing, this pony's ears are directed outward, in what I expect will become the normal manner from now on. After I began to really enjoy this piece, I put some extra effort into little details like the cutie mark, which is the first Fluttershy to have the full butterfly instead of butterfly wings alone, and, if I say so myself, the wings are one of my better sets.
Angel came out a little worse than I expected, but he's a fun addition to the set, and the pink ivory for the stand had to be ordered in for the occasion. All in all, not too shabby, although of course I'll look at it and laugh in a few months. :| Way of the world I suppose.
This set should include a manticore eventually, though I'm still in the design/ what designs are possible stage of that one at the moment.

Fluttershy and My Little Pony belong to Hasbro.

okay, NOW you've really done it!
The pose, the details, the wings, the cutie-mark stand, the bunny?
It was too hard to resist giving a critique after i noticed the work you did on the ears like you did with your 'Fennec fox piece'. It's a great effort since it gives more depth perception to the wooden figure
Now if my eyes don't deceive me, I see that you made her cutiemark bigger than your other works. It fits her fine- and once again, adds depth.
The cutiemark-stand is just adowabo! If ~Alovnek suggested you to do that, it was well worth it!
Also the sharpness of the wings really brings the doll alive... I'm sure with a little T.L.C. , imagination (and of course magic) this figurine would soar up into the sky!

Awesome work, always progressing and keep up the amazing woodwork! ;)
What do you think?

:la: WILL DO!What type of wood is soft and easy to cut?

xofox Featured By Owner Dec 14, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Pine or basswoood, or balsa I suppose, but balsa is so soft it's actually a huge pain in the neck to carve.

Gosh she's lovely. Very graceful and breezy. Makes me smile to simply see it. Seems much like she's greatly enjoying a sunny day out while Angel's merely tolerating the outing. The colours are perfect! You keep improving in capturing a sense of fluid motion in your work.

No worries. Don't mean to sound like I'm on repeat with any of my comments but it truly is amazing to me how energy and attitude can be conveyed into carved wood. Seeing how your skills have evolved over time and how much you improve in translating those into the carvings has been impressive. It's cool to look forward to what will come next. Makes me kinda wish I had clay and a kiln to play around with again.

That ear design is a bit weird imo.. not any worse or better so to speak, just different. The piece altogether is lovely though. I can't wait to see the manticore!

Angel, wings, her cutie mark, ears, the mane and the tail are just perfect, maybe the body could be improved because to me it looks like front legs and back legs are too close to each other but I'm saying this because I know you like it when someone point out flaws on your work, it's not a huge problem, it's barely noticeable but it make her looks slightly overweight :P
But it's an amazingly well made Fluttershy and I'm really drolling right now :)

Fluttershy looks amazing and I also like that you added the middle piece of walnut in the stand.

Now I can't wait to get her home (and pose her together with the manticor).

Had to learn to do eyes on him; I'm afraid his neck is a bit odd and lopsided, but he coulda been worse.
