Twinkling mane and tail with around 90 points of light
Horn lighted by one blue and one white LED
Replaceable horns, transparent or regular blue

This one really pushed my limits. I can honestly say that there has been blood, sweat and tears involved in this, but it's been worth it! :aww:


Thanks to:

:iconfrozenpyro71: for his super wing sculpting tutorial
My dad for helping me with a lot of reference pictures for the wing pattern
Everyone else involved in this community for keeping me inspired enough to actually finish this and all my other pieces! :D

This figurine is phenomenal!  Just a question, though-could you possibly explain how you did the lights, or recommend any tutorials that I could learn from?  I'm a sculpting noob, but I want to sculpt a figurine for my best friend for christmas with light-up parts: any advice you could give would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you!

Sorry for the late reply. The mane and tail were made as separate pieces which i cut in half after baking them.
I then added fiber optic strands from the inside and glued it all back together. The light strands the runs down inside the legs into the base where the actual lights are.
The light for the horn is placed inside the head.
For tutorials on fiber optics I would recommend looking at tutorials on plastic models and such, as they are quite common.

Something like this: www.youtube.com/watch?v=vDtuw6…

hope that helped a bit :)

You're very welcome!  And thank you so much!  This really helps me, I think I can figure out how to do the figurine I'm wanting to light up now!  I really appreciate you taking the time to respond!

I see this and am struck with the idea for a Nightlight Luna.

Nice dedication. Glad someone did the stars in her hair. But what about her horn?
