Thorns - 2006  
Custom Modified Pony
NOT Affiliated with Hasbro
Design by Liana
Custom by Aikarin


Thorns is a prickly 3rd gen pony, who actually looks a bit "greener" than the pics.  Base pony is G3 Wing Wisher Minty.  She was re-rooted with 3 different colors of nylon hair - dark emerald green, black, and lime green.  Her tail shares the same 3 colors.

This pony's design came together nicely.  Quite a creative interpretation of the rose/thorn theme! ^_^

Thorns' eyes were completely repainted.  Many coats of lime green, emerald green, and dabs of white give them depth.  Her lashes are black.

Thorns also has a special hoof mark - a black rose.  Her symbol is made up of two overlapping thorny plants.  Everything was painted freehand.  I think the lighting washed out some of the color...the painted areas are actually quite vibrant!

She has 3 sculpted "thorns" coming out of her forehead.  The thorns were firmly rooted in the plastic, painted, then given a varnish coat.

Thorns will be going to live with her designer, Liana, so she is NOT for sale.  She is signed and dated under one hoof.  This design will NOT be repeated.  Below is a concept sketch...that pony doesn't actually exist.
