Aqua the Aquarium pony by jupiternwndrlnd Aqua the Aquarium pony by jupiternwndrlnd
I made her, for my husband for Christmas, to resemble/have elements from his 80 gallon saltwater tank. (he also has a 30 gallon fresh water tank and a 10 gallon salt tank...add in the 30 gallon sump and we have a lot of water in the house - ha)
her legs are dyed darker blue gradient.
Then i re-rooted her with "daiquiri ice' -- but before I started the re-root I dyed just the middle portion of the hank, so that the roots would be a darker blue.
her eyes were painted with acrylics. Her 'symbol' details where sculpted and painted. (the Coral-Banded Shrimp on her back has antennas made from monofilament (fishingline))
wip pics: [link]
and another: [link]

and I took her box and trimmed it out in black paper - to make it resemble the tank; i also included a shot of the tank

Gorgeous! I especially love the cute little snail shell on her nose. The aquarium box is cool too, though I think you should have put colored rocks or a plant in it too ;)

Simply stunning creation youve got here.... how much do you take for a custom pony?

Thank You! ^_^

Unfortunately, at the moment I am backed up on my commission work, and am desperately trying to work my way down my waiting list, so I shouldn't take on anymore until I get caught up.
Normally my prices range between $25-$75, depending on the amount of work.
Check back in a few months if your still interested, and I will see about getting you on my list.
Thanks again!

Wow! LOVE IT!
Awesome! was wondering how you do it and where you get your ponies from? - also, what do they generally cost (just the pony and then all together to make it?)

Ive never done this before and would like to make one :P

LOVELY WORK!!!

wow, i freakin love this pony! My boyfriend has a 50 gal, 35 gal and 10 gal, all saltwater tanks. The tank you pictured looks a lot like ours, we have a torch coral like yours, and we used to have a Dory and Nemo fish, but sadly, we lost them for no apparent reason. Anyway, I wish I could've given my man something so personal and beautiful!!! :happytear:

You are quite welcome! Saltwater is waymore enchanting than fresh. But they can be so frustrating sometimes!
Hehe, just lately we're having strange species of macro algae cropping up from nowhere.. >_>

the freshwater tank is DEFINITELY more frustrating than the salt. We are hoping to add seahorses to our smaller salt tank soon WHEE!! seahorses!!

Oh yay, I love seahorses! We have a small hexagonal tank that we're prepping for sea horses. My bf is going out of town though, so it'll have to wait. I really wish we had the means for Sea Dragons, those guys are the coolest! :)

Total (re-root, sculpting and painting) I'd estimate it took me about 7 hours? maybe 8...
