African Sunset was made from a 3rd generation pony.  Her body was completely re-painted with a dark reddish-orange to warm yellow gradient.  She was re-rooted with straightened Kanekalon in black with randomly spaced red/orange and gold/yellow blended streaks!  Her tail features the same colors.

Her eyes were given a partial repaint.  The green part is original.  The outline and lashes were re-painted in black, to match the rest of the pony.  She was also given golden yellow eyeshadow.

African Sunset was given a box with a custom printed front label...designed to match her colors and symbol design!  Her colors are more vibrant in real-life...very hard to capture with digital photography. ^_^

African Sunset's symbols show the silhouette of an acacia tree and the wild grasslands.  They were carefully hand-painted without the use of guides or templates.  A very light coat of matte varnish seals the symbols.

Here is a picture before completion.

African Sunset is an original pony and she will NOT be repeated.  She is signed & dated under one hoof in light green.  She is NOT for sale...she will be going to her new home with Red Velvet Rose! ^_^
