The Brain of Oak

My name is John, but also known as Pickles or Oak and welcome to my high maintenence personal blog. I'm a fan of My Little Pony: Friendship is magic, Homestuck, Gravity Falls, Adventure Time and occasionally other fandoms as well. I also reblog the occasional feminist, LGTBIQ or political things as well. Occasional NSFW as well, but I try to tag it as such. I live in Australia yo so g'day or something.

Come and chat to me, my inbox is always open.

Also check out all My Pony Customs I post on my Tumblr.

And here's my Deviantart

And here's my My Monster High Repainting Tutorial
Oct 14 '12

Here is Steelhooves, a collaboration custom with Zingy180. I pieced together/sculpted the base model and he painted it. Steelhooves is a Fluttershy base covered in various Gundam model parts that’s been carved and glued together with a bit of milliput to cover gaps and compensate for areas. I intended Steelhooves to be roughly the size of Big Mac and Shining mainly because my headcanon for him was to be very bulky and built such as those two as he was a soldier and that his armor would appear to be bulky and heavy.

I acknowledge that he is indeed missing his mechanical covered tail, but the various attempts to try piecing together such a part from Gundam parts or sculpting it resulted in hilariously bad forms, so I opted to leave it off. 

Zingy180 did the paint job as I am completely sucky with machine style painting, and I trusted his knowledge of Warhammer pieces to do a much better than I would have managed. I wanted Steelhooves to be painted after he became an Outcast and I think Zingy180 did a fantastic job on him.

I need to find some badass weaponry for him so he can be a proper Steel Ranger. (Also I need to do some proper group shots of all of my Fallout Equestria customs since I have 8 of them right now and have plans for a few more….)
