Summerfield  - 2005
Custom Modified Pony
NOT Affiliated with Hasbro
Custom Design by Aikarin

Sunflowers are among my favorite flowers to paint.  Yes, I do paint things other than ponies. ^_^

I found this previously loved pony  and her deep golden yellow body color reminded me of the sunflowers that I love so much.  So, I decided to give her a new life as Summerfield - the Sunflower custom!

She has a tiny sunflower with two leaves marking her magnet hoof.  This pony is NOT FOR SALE.

Summerfield's hair was custom dyed a radiant shade of deep orange gold.
There isn't a pony in the world with hair like this! ^_^
The tinsel was left in place.  Her hair was gently styled with a slight curl.

Summerfield's textured symbols were painted free-hand on BOTH sides!  No sketches or pre-drafting at all!  I was aiming for a more "spontaneous" look.  ^_^ 

They were given a glossy top coat, since I wanted to capture the depth of the wet paint!  The leaves & stems were painted using "flat" paint for a delightful contrast.  They're also sealed.

Here's a picture of her display side symbol.  Summerfield's symbols look nicer in real life.  They feature golden yellows, tans, bright orange, a myriad of dark browns & shades of warm black.  It's hard to capture the wonderful texture.  The white area is glare from the lighting.

An angled picture of her display side symbol.  Mmmm...yummy texture. ^_^

Summerfield is an Aikarin original.  She will not be replicated (actually impossible given the spontaneous nature of her design).  She is signed & dated under one hoof.

This pony is NOT FOR SALE.
