Monkey Island, but with PONIES!

Well, since I've already made Kirby versions of Guybrush, Elaine and Morgan, I could only think of one thing that could top that kind of crossover. A crossover with REAL BRUSHABLE HAIR! You know, like just about every single girl's toyline of the 1980s. Speaking of girl's toylines from the 80s, I recently got a load of vintage My Little Ponies (which were all in terrible condition just in case there's any angry collectors out there!) off eBay for me to experiment on, because I wanted to try my hand at customising My Little Ponies. You know, for science and junk.

Without further ado, meet Guinea Pony #1:

A pirate, eh? Well, that can be arranged... with some acetone, a scalpel and a scalping. Because the Three Trials are for PEOPLE, not ponies.

Oh, it's much too late for that Pony!Guybrush. Much, much too late...

Scrubbing, scalping and otherwise preparing the ponies for customisation takes a while, so you can amuse yourself by using the disembodied heads to freak out your flatmates. That's what I did anyway.

The teal pony head on the right may or may not be related to the Monkey Island/My Little Pony project. Or I might just put it in my flatmate's bed while he's asleep.

Next, sculpting!

I'm using Milliput epoxy putty to sculpt the outfit, unfortunately this means I have to do it in stages. I'm hoping to finish it tonight, so there should be more pics later.

    Omg is that a Fallout box the Guy-pony is on? if so that game is awesome
    Yes indeed, it's the box for Fallout 2 because I had it by my PC and he needed a flat surface to stand on. Well spotted!

    too bad it's not painted gold. I could make the worst pun ever here.
    Do tell, horrible puns are always entertaining!

    Here he is with his base colours painted, I've still to do details like his eyes and the patterns on his jacket. Then he gets re-haired, then he's done!

    He's still kinda creepy though... I think it must be the dead, blank stare.
  • I'll take 20!

    Brilliant work, really can't wait to see the end result!
  • This is truly fanstastic, reminds me of [SPOILER]when Guybrush switches bodies with someone with the balnk eyes[/SPOILER]
  • This work is awesome. It's been said, but I can't wait to see the end result.
  • that pony is gonna look so freaking awesome when it's done.. I can't wait!
  • Lookin good pony. Your test as a pirate is coming to an end! nice crossover!!!
  • I love the WIP approach.... I like seeing what goes into stuff.. Often when you just share the end result people can not appreciate the amount of work goes into things.

    It was "Stay gold, Ponybrush"
  • Thanks for all the comments guys! It's good to know that other people find this concept entertaining instead of/as well as disturbing.

    Painting is more or less done, he finally has eyes again!

    Now, it has been suggested to me that I should blend the blonde hair/feathering on his hooves in with the skintone more so there's not such an abrupt jump between skin and hair. But it's also been suggested to me that I should leave it the way it is. What do you guys think? Here's a closeup:

    Next up is the rehairing!
