El Chupacabra Pony by DeepDarkCreations El Chupacabra Pony by DeepDarkCreations
Made for assassin_kitty at the MLPArena paranormal swap

Assassin_kitty said she wanted a totally random paranormal pony for the swap, and I must confess I was stumped for a while. I thought about doing the Loch Ness Monster, but eventually decided to go with my version of the Chupacabra if it was a pony ^.^

The Chupacabra is classified as an extraterrestrial cryptid (alien animal of unknown origins), and my favourite description involved spines, a forked tongue, no ears, big red glowy eyes and leathery scaley skin.


El Chupacabra pony had her ears carved off and smoothed over, and huge lidless eyes sculpted on. The tongue and spines are all firmly wired into place and a small ridge runs down her back. That ridge actually has black micro beads embedded in there for texture and it is really rough and bumpy ^.^ I also tried to hide her hideous neck seam, and I was pretty successful I think.

She was airbrush a million times in that greenish grey colour, and I painted the dots on as a way of continuing the idea of scales - but made them stylised and swirly coz that was cute ^.^
Her eyes and spines are actually black with irredescent pain on them - blue on the spines and red for the eyes. The tongue was painted a cool deep bluey black colour.

She was sealed with Dullcote and then her eyes, spines and dots were all given a couple of coats of gloss mod podge.

I love the metallic purple eyes in contrast to the rest of the body and the scale texture is simple but is excellent at hinting at more detail. Nicely done without being overdone.

I wish the chupacabra really was a real life animal. The description are too varied for me t believe it is real.

Going to try my hand at a little sculpturing and your additions to your ponies always look so clean and smooth may I ask what type of clay/modeling stuffs you use? I'm hoping to find something that will make cute little jewelery/key chain/tiny model things. So maybe your clay and my clay wont do the same thing. I'm not sure.

And AS always. You know how much I love your work. This one is crazy awesome. I love how you can't even tell you got rid of ears. It looks perfect!

Thank you very much ^.^

I use an apoxy clay (its a two part clay which needs to be mixed properly to combine both parts so it hardens properly).
You can use either Apoxie Sculpt (which is american) or the aussie equivalent called Magic Sculpt - supplier is in QLD.

You can also try using polymer clays like Fimo, Sculpey or SuperSculpey. That needs to be oven baked but comes in a huge range of colours.... from the sounds of it, this might be the stuff for you :)

Thank you so much for your help. Called all our 'art' suppliers here and none have Sculpy but one offered to order it in for me. So hopefully in a few weeks and can begin trying to make things!! :D

These people spent 45mins of this hour program whining about how their livestock were getting eaten and i was asking the tv 'why doesnt anyone put FILM CAMERAS UP to FILM what is eating them'

turns out that they dont exist. heyy....
