Daring Do's Elite Adventure Team by OtakuSquirrel Daring Do's Elite Adventure Team by OtakuSquirrel
Yay! Daring Do has wings!!! And she's pretty much finished except for her eyes...
I figured it was as good a time as any to get her together with Equestria's other greatest pegasi: Rainbow Dash and Firefly!

As everyone might notice-- Daring's cutie-marks are almost completely covered. But, if you're looking at her butt, you can still see them behind her wings, so all is thankfully not for not.

Anyway, it's almost midnight in my time-zone and I have work tomorrow... so I'm calling it a night. Tomorrow I'll get her eyes and a couple tiny touch-ups... but let's face it, she's pretty much finished!

:icondaringdoplz: - Yay!

hmm...you use magnets to hold their hats and things in place, correct? why not a similar system for alternate wings?

If I was going to get fancy with the wings- I'd just have them plug in. I only use magnets for hats and stuff cause I don't want a connecting point on the hair to show. With wings, you'd be swapping out, and a plug would be more stable.

ah, that is true, i was just thinking more from the sense of your kits, i would imagine magnets would be easier for other people to install than peg holes would be, hahaha

Apparently, Daring Do or Rainbow Dash found a time machine. I hope no one tells Fireflier that she's Rainbow Dash's mother.

Well... I still haven't managed to perfectly match the paint color of her wings to her body-- and I still haven't changed her eye color. But past that, yeah, she's pretty good. ;)

Looked at your group and couldn't find your description/standards. Last time I got invited to and joined a random group I ended up seeing a lot of explicit pony pictures that didn't really agree with me... =(
Regardless of that, I usually don't submit much to groups these days-- except for the occasional photo of a finished pony/ponies... But I almost always let groups add my pictures if they send over requests. =)

They're the standard Hasbro Playful ponies (Applejack, Rainbow Dash and Flitterheart) but I customized them just a little bit to suit my own needs... ;)

i just noticed that daring's colors are intended to be opposite dashie's.
RD had rainbow mane, daring has gray mane.
RD is blue, daring is orange.
but other than that...

Yeah, I sculpt the manes and tails (and all the rest of the extras on Daring) then make molds and make lots of resin copies of the sculpts to use and sell...

Well, I'm not currently taking orders for the resin kits, but I do occasionally sell them. If you or a friend/family member have hobby skills, they're pretty reasonably priced. The finished ones are a bit more expensive.

She looks fantastic! My onnly comment would be that the wing color on the non-display side doesn't quite match the body, but she's still amazing.
Reply
:iconotakusquirrel:
OtakuSquirrel Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2012  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Yeah, I know about the colors... both wings are basically a tiny bit too bright-- so I just need to find something to drybrush them with to tone it down a tiny-bit. I also still need to repaint her eyes. For the moment, I'm justifying not fixing those things by just saying that it's Applejacck cosplaying as Daring Do. ;)

Thanks! The first time I tried to make folded wings (back when I was working on Applejack, my second attempt at sculpting) it didn't go nearly so well. But this time it went a lot better. =)

It's probably the lighting, but are Daring Do's wings a different color than her coat?
