Luxpony started out as a fairly battered Kimono G3 pony in what I like to call Sassy Pose (technically speaking, Sunny Daze pose). After a quick scrub, dehairing, and basepainting, I gave him a base coat of Reeves Acrylic cerulean blue, with grass green, violet, phthalo blue, and prussian blue dry-brushed on to give an impression of the colours you often find symbolising the deeper parts of the ocean. His cutie mark (a trident topped with a crown) was added on in gold.
After a varnish with Jo Sonja's Satin Varnish, he was rehaired with a custom blend from mylittleponyhair.com called Deadly Poison, a combination of Deadly Poison (a purple), and Poison Ivy (a green). The mane was boil-set to lay flatter than most pony manes and give it a semi-wet look.
Full body shot. The hair is very dark, but you can see highlights of green and purple in this shot.

The non-display side, as it's called, to show off more of the drybrushed stippling. The neck join is more pronounced than I'd like; this pony was one of the more difficult ones to dehair and I had to end up boiling the head to get all of the glue out, and the neck cooled slightly off.
One of my favourite parts of the sassy pose - the over the shoulder look. And his butt.
