Firebolt by fireflytwinkletoes Firebolt by fireflytwinkletoes
:iconfirebolt-lordoffire:'s alicorn OC, Firebolt! I like how he turned out, even though yellow isn't one of my favorite colors. I think this is the first alicorn OC I've made!

Flipping through my gallery, I think this is my favorite stallion as far as head shape and muzzle goes! I think his face turned out really neat and sharp.

Please avoid "Oh, for a sec I thought it was a Spitfire genderbend!" comments. I realize the colors and theme are similar.

No. It says in the description that he's an OC.

The flame look to his mane and tail are amazing! Great job yet again Firefly
The black tips on the wings are a really nice touch. Did you use a different fabric for the tips or did you dye the fabric?

The wing tips are black minky that's been appliqued onto the yellow.

I have a question if you don't mind helping me out. I make pony plushes as well, and I just can't seem to figure out how to do the wired wings. Could you give me a few pointers? :)

:iconfireflytwinkletoes:
fireflytwinkletoes Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2013  Professional Artisan Crafter
I just run a wire through the body and up into each wing, and make sure the ends of the wire are folded over and covered so there's no chance of being poky.

I just looked up that movie - I didn't even hear about it, and I really like superhero movies! I guess I'll have to watch it at some point. How was it? The last thing I watched in theatres was Pacific Rim.

Awesome! Are you looking forward to it? What are you thinking of taking?

It was amazing. I loved the fight scenes, and the Japanese sounded pretty good. HammerWorm particularly liked that bit. ^_^

I still haven't seem that, but I've heard it was good. :D

 

And I'm a little nervous since I've been out of school for so long. It's been about three years now. ^^;

But I'm hopeful. I'm going for electrical engineering as my major. Not sure what to do with my minor though. XD

Himm, I guess I'll have to see it, then!

Pacific Rim was excellent for what it was - if all you wanted to see was fantastic graphics and mechs and monsters beating the crap out of each other, it was fantastic. The acting and plot, however, was laughable :D

Oooh, you're choosing a hard one! Do you have to do a minor? I didn't...

I love that front view shot, he looks very cool and determined. That mane looks like it's made of a bajillion different layers! I almost didn't notice his horn in all those flames :P Loving the clean lines on his eye applique - his upper lash line looks like calligraphy - and the cutie mark as well, very simple but effective and those wingtips are great little details.

Thanks! That was the expression I was going for :D Surprisingly, there's only 5 separate pieces to his mane! The wingtips were a bit of a pain, though :P

I realize. I just always feel bad for people that create OCs that bear a passing resemblance to canon characters, because it seems like "Oh, that looks exactly like such-and-such!" are the only comments they get, rather than people looking at the character for its own merits ^^;

:iconwheelz567:
Wheelz567 Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I know what you mean. I didn't mean it like a "oh that's a copy". Spitfire is one of my favorite side characters, so I couldn't help but notice.  Firebolt here definitely has his own flair, and I as a fellow fan enjoy the design the creator put into their OC.  I mean I'm guilty to a certain respect too. My OC was slightly inspired by established characters, if not visually, at least with the attitude/personality I gave her :P   

All in all though, cool/fun looking character and great plushie :)
