Wheat Grass by Githgulcag Wheat Grass by Githgulcag
Wheat grass is a character from the official my little pony comic. I started sculpting this pretty much immediately after I read the micro series comic featuring rarity.
The water is made out of "Realistic water" by Woodland scenics. It creates quite neat looking water effect but it is really time consuming to use due to 24 hour curing time and huge shrinkage. It took many layers to create that shallow water. Next time I will use some kind of clear resin to create water effects.

I'm already impressed by how realistically detailed this is, but now I'm even more impressed now that I've realized how tiny it is! :wow:

Nice use of.. is that an epoxy? I can tell a lot of work went into this and you deserve recognition for it.

Incredible!
I'm also so glad Wheat Grass is getting some love. I loved her in the comic and I was hoping she'd get some attention from the bronies.

the amount of details on the painting on her is really impressive, and i like the mix of materials you used to create the water and the ground for the base; that's giving it some even more realistic aspect <3

Oh wow, this is amazing! You definitely did her justice! I'm happy you liked her enough to make this awesomeness!

So, Wheat Grass is a Medium-base model? ;)

I really like all the tiny details (those glasses are less than 1mm thick!) in this and the way the painting brings out a lot of the texture.
The water does look good but a 24 hour curing time would sting. How many days did it take you to build that up?

Thanks!

The water took about 5 days to build up. Each layer was about 3mm thick but after curing there were only 1mm left.
