    TF/MLP: Trot Rod & Trottimus Prime - Finished!

    My first ever custom!!

    It was bound to happen you know it. I am working on 2 pony customs. Hot Rod/Trot Rod pony and a larger Rodimus/Trottimus. I haven't taken any pics of Trottimus yet, because he's still in pieces XD waiting to be dyed.

    Not sure what type of wings I will use for Trot Rod because I am not sure the Pegasus wings will stay up. If not I will use regular "spoiler" wings.

    I used this tutorial for pony wings, I of course didn't need such huge wings so mine are a bit different ;) . Wing Sculpting Tutorial by ~Eiriel on deviantART

    YAY! You Pony customizers are some of the most crazy creative and taleted customizers out there, I LOVE the work Pony-People put out!

    Even more so when it's a cross-over with my favorite characters :)

    Awesome, can't wait. I'm kind of a closet pony fan, what w/ a 6-yo daughter and the new show on the Hub.

    Hope you weren't being sarcastic! Anyone that thinks this is silly should go google Pony Customs and see the amazing work!

    Even if you think the ponies themselves are dumb, you cannot argue with the custom work this community produces!

    I wish I could work quicker! Waiting forever for stuff to dry. Plus the dye I bought for trottimus was too dark, only found that out once I opened it of course.

    But thanks for the support, I'll update with pics as I keep going.

    Updating with a pic of Trottimus who is currently the headless horse-bot.

    Anyway I am not sure what to do for decorations, I want exhaust pipes on legs, but I was planning on making flames up the leg. Should I try to do a flaming hoof? Any thoughts?

    Okay, as a fan of MyLittlePony (I'm a girl, they were 'horses'... don't judge me...) and of the great custom work that is in the Pony Community I LOVE what you're doing here.
    The dye work and wings look fantastic, and I can't wait to see how you do the flame decals^^

    ...Also I love your signature image-Another Rodi fan, YAY! ^^

    :lolol  Thanks, I think :p .


    I actually ended up not dying them, I couldn't get the dye the right color, and the paint came out so good on Trot Rod, I just decided to the same to Trottimus. I just used a body sponge and regular acrylic paint. I tried a brush on Rod's face but it looked awful, I used acetone to remove it and body sponge that too.

    Thanks everyone! I hope I don't disappoint with the finished product. I'm shopping around for sealers at the moment.

    He's looking great already!

    (I should have mentioned earlier that I too am a Roddy nut, and this is definitely part of the appeal for me here ;) )

    LOVE the idea of exhaust pipes on the legs....you've got the "spoiler/wing" covered with wings, flames SOMEWHERE are a must (hoof sounds good, but chest/neck might be more accurate, even if Ponies don't always loook their best head-on..). I think to be perfect you need a touch of blue on there somewhere to evoke his canopy, or else removeable green-tinted-sunglasses to evoke the targetting lenses.

    Going to be great no mattter where you land!

    Well, Trottimus is going to have some blue on him. But I don't want to give too much away on my plans, muahaha. ;) 

    I was thinking of flames on chest but you wouldn't really be able to see it. But don't worry they will definitely have flames on them. Plus their "cutie marks" will have flame ;) 

    Updating pics on first post

    Trot Rod!!! I love it!! He must be one of the larger "blank" ponies you can buy, methinks.
    Great colors..can't wait to see what you do with the flames..on HR they're on his chest, but on the pony, it would be cool if he could have some winged feet with flames. Can't wait to see your finished product!! Trottimus arise!! :thumb

    Winged feet? I don't think so :lol . Wings are going in normal spot for a Pegasus. This is a pegasus http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pegasus

    And no I didn't use any blank ponies. I havea blank pony, they are pretty small, only one size. I tortured a G3 and a G1 for these projects.

    Both are going to have flame cutie marks, but Prime will have an additional something special :D

    DUH...I typed winged feet, but I just meant feet with flames..double duh :) -- maybe around and up the legs..since I don't think the chest will work for ya as you mentioned...
    :eek:  Don't torture the ponies. :p  but I still like the project idea and where you want to take Trot Rod. :thumb 

    I know what a pegusus is...I've studied all the Roman,Greek, etc. mythologies. :)

    I'm loving the slight uptick in Pony customs lately, and this is a great addition! Awesome. That wing tut is good stuff too. I might have to figure out a way to use that.
