MLP WIP: Rainbow Dash model (AKA, Ayuka needs blender practice)

Neko Arrange is now officially 20% cooler.

I have to apologize to anyone and everyone. I have greatly and horribly overlooked my duties to this website and anyone who visits here. I have a committed an atrocious wrong and failed my goal to spread the word of cute. This is a fact that must be set right immediately. I must now admit to you that I have failed, in my stupidity, to mention My Little Pony.

No, wait, come back!

So, yeah. If it wasn’t obvious, I’m a huge Friendship is Magic fan. About as big as I am a Touhou fan, and that’s saying A LOT. But this post isn’t really about my Little Pony. Well, it sort of it. KP-ShadowSquirrel has made some excellent models of the mane cast from Friendship is Magic and very kindly offered them for download on deviantArt. I needed some practice with blender so I decided to download one and try my hand at skinning. It ended up being a series of problems, one after another, but I ended up learning a lot which was my original goal so I consider this a success! Although when I turned shadows on the textures started acting weird, so most of them are the same solid-color cartoony style you see above, which I think works pretty well considering the show. Click the picture above to see more. Model and base texture are by KP-ShadowSquirrel. Poorly executed pose and texture effects by me.

Yeah, a lot of these post recently have been about me learning stuff, but that’s kinda the point. I’m learning stuff! Also, this was supposed to get posted yesterday but was delayed. This delay was in no way because of being distracted by ponies. Nope, not possible.
