What am i doing here.
On the first place, this Account was created to upload drawings. And now there a lot of photos of small pony Sculptures.

It's not that i'm a Tabletop gamer. Even if most of the Figurines are fit for this kind of Game. I just have a hard crush in the Miniatures and realizing that making them is not impossible.

Is it Possible?

That's the question that i'm asking myself every time while starting a new Figurine. And the usual answer is YES!

In the end, drawing and sculpting has somme synergy. Because both is necessary. I can't make miniatures without some guidance Artwork. It's a question about how you work best. And i need a good artwork first.

Besides sculpting various Ponies, my big goal is the everfree Pony battle group.
OK, original it's the circle Orboros from Privateer press. But because what name would be better for a group of anthro druid Ponies supported by a bunch of Golems and ferocious beasts like two headed dogs and big cats?
In the end, this will be a full functional tabletop fraction, using the original rules of Hordes. Some Background is here.… .

At this way, one problem is avoided: those Ponies fit the existing rules. Because there is nothing be said about how a figurine have to look. Only some guidance is to consider.
1. No changes in the size of the base, because this is essential for almost everything in this game.
2. I can change the look of the original Miniature but it must be still identifiable. I do that by using marked similarities.
3. I will NOT using the mane 6. I'm good in making tabletop Ponies but my experience in tabletop playing is terrible. I will lose. My ponies will go down. And that's something i don't want do with the mane 6. Except Rarity cause she's already here and maybe Fluttershy.

What Materials i use for doing that:
Unlike other crafters i'm not working with Super Sculpey or Fimo. My material is Pro Crate, Keadatite Brown Stuff and plastic card for the frame. Both putty are hardening by time, not temperature and that will come in a coupe of hours. Pro create for doing almost everything, Brown stuff for everything with sharp edges.
To work with them i have some Tools very familiar with dentist worktools. Who cares, it works.

About commisions.....
Unlike the small size of my work it took really long to make one of those. (And i'm not a swift worker anyway.) And my free time is not unlimited. So yes i do commissions, if i have some time for do that. And at the moment i have enough commissions to do.

And made some baaad experience with it.

Deviantart is 15 now and to celebrate that, they asked a few questions. So, let's make a new journal entry here.
  1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?
    The profile says four. Must be true.

  2. What does your username mean?
    Nachtana31 by Nachtana

    That. In german. With a typo.

  3. Describe yourself in three words.
    creative, lazy, brony.

  4. Are you left or right handed?
    turn left to go right. I would really like make more with my left hand.

  5. What was your first deviation?
    No idea anymore. First one in the gallery maybe?

  6. What is your favourite type of art to create?
    Those who made people laugh. In one way or another.

  7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
    Coloration. I hate it.

  8. What was your first favourite?
    One Shot by chesterocampo
    Seriously? Favoriting colour reverence can have strange results.

  9. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
    Looks like digital drawing. But mostly i favorite the not so known art. The others are downloaded anyway. If it's beautiful and has not many faves, it got mine.

  10. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
    That changes from time to time. Those on my watchlist? Hmmmm.....

  11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
    Strange enough that i meet DeviantArtists and did not recognize them.
    :iconandypriceart: because that will be the only way to buy a comic page from him. Stupid "we don't send to europe"

  12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
    I'm sculpting ponies thanks to them?

  13. What are your preferred tools to create art?
    Even there is a grafic tablet and sculpting tools, i really like my drop action pencils.

  14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
    During a travel. Train, trainstations, airport or in a plane. But not on cars.

  15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
    People recognizing me.

Alles Gute! Ist zwar ein echt blöder Tag zum feiern aber du wirst schon deinen Spaß haben!
Hast du dir einen klitzekleinen Kuchen gemacht, mit noch kleineren Kerzen und mikroskopisch winzigen Zuckerperlen? ;-)
