Derpy Hooves (First MLP:FiM edit) by Big-Joop Derpy Hooves (First MLP:FiM edit) by Big-Joop
For anyone who read my journal entry, THIS is what I was talking about. She is the first of what I hope to be many edits.

Made from one of the $5 Hasbro toys. Removed the hair, threw on some primer, molded new mane and tail from some weird-ass clay a friend provided me with, and all the paint is latex-based Behr paint.

My Derpy Hooves, you brighten my day, and for that, I am forever grateful.

(My camera is horrible, so I'll see if I can't find a better one and perhaps re-up this picture some day)

One last note... I have a blank unicorn and blank earth pony sitting off to the side, waiting for similar edits. I have an idea of what I want to do with them, but I want to know what suggestions anypony may have. Leave 'em in the comments. :3

You could make the earth pony Bon Bon and the Unicorn Lyra. Just some ideas ^-^ I'm planning on making a Derpy using Lily Blossom. I won't remove the hair though. Do you have any tips for me?

I was actually thinking that Bonny and Lyra were going to be the way to go. :3

As for tips... Use a good primer (Valspar Flat Spray) if you use acrylics, or a paint/primer combo (Behr Premium Plus) if you prefer latex paints. Don't rush yourself; quality work is worth the time you put into it. Have good lighting; An Ottlite or full-spectrum bulb works nice. Guess I'm not really sure what you're looking for with tips. xD

Yay! Now Lyra has a voice :3 and thank you for your help. It means a lot ^^

Was pretty pumped when I heard Lyra talk.

Always happy to help when/where I can. Wish I had more to offer, but I'm glad what I had was useful. :3

Me too ^-^

Thank you again. I still haven't gotten the toy so I can't work on it at the moment lol.
