Phoebe Rose by DeepDarkCreations Phoebe Rose by DeepDarkCreations
OK, so as soon as I saw ColourscapesArt was my partner I knew yellow was the only choice of colour I could go with :) I know CSA likes yellow roses, and her steampunk ponies are always so gorgeous, I knew I wanted to work gears into the design somehow.
Phoebe Rose (Phoebe means Pure radiance which I think is perfect for this little lady) is also my very first masquerade pony!

So! Pony was a gem butt pony, who had her gem removed and the hole patched.
Airbrushed in pale yellow with several darker shades of yellow on her leg gradients and her ears, then her eyes, mask and symbol were handpainted all done with artist grade acrylics. I've been working on getting more details and shading into my paintwork and I really love the way this piece came out using some of those new techniques.
Her mask was sculpted using Magic Sculpt and features crystals in several places.
Her hair is Lemon drop, Napalm, Golden Delicious, Butterfly and Pineapple all from Dollyhair. She has extra plug holes along the top of her hair, which was twisted and pinned in place with - you guessed it - yellow pins.
Sealed with Dullcote, then with Triple Thick on her eyes and Modpodge Gloss on her mask. She also has some gorgeous pale yellow glitter for eyeshadow.

Late to the party, but wow! Yellow's not even a color I'm wild about and I love this pony (and it's so CSA). :heart: That mask is nothing short of amazing and your detail painting is incredible. That yellow hair blend, too... I wouldn't have guessed there were so many different yellows at a glance, but they're still distinguishable while blending beautifully.

**squeezy hugs you**
Your comments are the most wonderful, thought out comments :heart: Thank you!!!
I am not a yellow person, so I actually had to work really hard getting so much yellow to work well together. I never realised how hard it is to do monochrome yellow - getting things to blend nicely, rather than just using something because its yellow... yeah. Tough.
I am so glad you like her though sweetheart!

Your craftmanship is beyond compare, every lil bit is just so perfect in design and execution.

I want to smell the rose, caress its petals and plant its seeds in my garden it looks so good.

Thank you so much!! I am so flattered - and I am so glad that people have liked her :) It was definately a pony I worked hard on, as I don't usually work with this kind of palette, and I've been working hard on improving my detail work :)
