My Little Pony: Spike

Wow! So, I’d been planning to maybe take a little break after finishing up the main 6 ponies from MLP:FiM, but after the amazing response I got about them at the beginning of the week from Lauren Faust and Equestria Daily I knew I had to finish up something quick as a thank you to all my new followers on DeviantArt and viewers of my portfolio website, so here we go!

This time I actually kept track of how long I worked on the model using RescueTime, so here are some interesting statistics:
Total time (including sleeping, eating, etc) from gathering source images to final renders: 28 hours
Total time spent in 3dsMax: 9 hours 14 minutes
Total time spent in Photoshop: 2 hours 4 minutes
Total time spent actively working on the model: 11 hours 18 minutes.

Whew! It certainly didn’t feel that long, but I have to remind myself that that’s actually pretty fast for 3d modeling work, and I’m getting faster.  :)

Hope you like him!

  • Do you think we could get a release for the model?

    So people can port him into videogames and modifications, it would atleast start a little for your model, credits will be placed obiously as you for the creator.

    There is quite alot of people in the Garrysmod community that would like the chance to use your model and port him into an actual videogame for people to use and play around with.

      If the model isn’t rigged, porting it into a lot of 3D programs will divide the meshes in such a way that makes further rigging and animation possible. Hopefully this model will be released and is rigged, but I doubt it.

    This is a nice model! Yet, I also agree with jack. Releasing this model will help you gain more fans. Who knows, you might even be discovered by someone in need of models.
