Trades - Open by SweetDuke Artwork, Figures, you name it.
Commissions - On Hold by SweetDuke At the moment. More or less, And i don't like them. Too less money for so much Worktime. I prefer Trades. BUT you can ask me anytime.
No Gifts by SweetDuke even some exeptions proves the rule.

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. privateerpress.com/hordes/mons… .

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.

To honest, i set this date because of some figurine i did for the Galacon. -And forgot to edit the page after the con.

Auf deutsch: ich habe dieses Datum gesetzt wegen einiger Figuren die unbedingt bis zur Galacon fertig sein mussten und hab seither meine Startseite nicht mehr überarbeitet. Juli ist lange vorbei, ich bin offen für eine ganze menge. Trades inklusive, vor allem wenn du die Partnerin wärst.
:iconlykaios-avery: hat mir an der Galacon eine Derpy verkauft. Jetzt bin ich auf der Suche nach einer Dinky doo.
