Changeling Minion - Brushable Custom by DeeKary Changeling Minion - Brushable Custom by DeeKary
Queen Chrysalis receives all the love, but what about the ones doing the dirty work? :lol: Here's my most recent custom, a Changeling minion with brushable mane and tail :D.

Just like Chrysalis, this little guy was also lots of work :) and just like her, it has a lot of sculpted parts with Apoxie (mainly the head and body) and the legs carved from the original plastic with no additions to them. The facial features like the frown and mouth are now raised to give it a realistic look. The wings were made from thin acrylic glass and painted with iridescent paint (you can see the shimmer in the pics this time :D).

Original body was the "Derped-eyes" Luna from the Canterlot set with Celestia (this one here: [link]), sculpted with Apoxie Sculpt, painted with Acrylics, rehaired with Dollyhair's Black Magick and Moonlight and sealed with Testor's Dullcote and Liquitex Gloss Varnish. It was a blast working on this guy <3 hope you all like him! :D

Lovely work all around. The blue-to-white gradient on the eyes in particular gives a striking impression.

You're right! The drones need to be fed a little to keep them going. You did a wonderful job making it fearsome and nasty while still a bit cute too. I'm truly impressed by how well the textures, forms and even the tiniest pieces show so well. Kudos on the wings (as you mentioned, they came out beautifully in the picture). Hopefully they're not too sharp! The creepy eyes make me shiver.

I'm amazed with how you combined so many skill sets to put this little sweetie together.

The mane and hair look like steel bristles.

If that's what they are, it's not something to give to a small child.

As stated in my description, the mane and tail are made of nylon doll hair. The metallic-looking hair is silver-colored nylon hair (which does get the result it should if you thought it was metal ^^). Also, I would never agree to do this kind of project if it was meant for a small child. All my work is made for collectors, so they're definitely not meant for playing :).

Yeap, not so much when you only have short hair and tail. :) But still, it's nice to have it on display rather than play with it. :)

Lol thanks :D actually I use the term brushable to name ponies with real hair :lol: the only actual part you would be able to brush is the tail though xD I don't think there's much one would do with that tiny Mohawk it has lol ^^.
