PostPosted: 0    Post subject: Literal Swap ~ FINISHED!

We are approved! Energetic

As a refresher, the idea for this swap is to take a known Hasbro pony and make them reflect their name literally! Even though the idea of "Literal" is pretty straight forward, one person's interpretation of a name might not be the same as another's. That's what makes this swap interesting Wink

Dates:

Sign-ups - Closed
Partners assigned!
Check in - May 16th
Check in - June 17th
Shipping - June 27th - July 8th

Rules:

1. You must have at least 3 Arena feedbacks. Since this is a pony based swap I'm mostly interested in your pony feedback.
2. You must have completed at least three customs.
3. No shipping early! Due to the many interpretations of the theme, some customs may take longer than others to make and I don't want anyone waiting too long for a pony. You'll be required to send me a pic of your completed custom before an okay to ship.
4. If for any reason you feel you cannot complete your custom on time or at all notify me immediately so that other arrangements can be made for your partner.
5. This is a secret swap! Don't tell anyone who your partner is.

Sign up form - Please fill out this form and PM it to me with the subject "Literal Swap"

Arena Name:

Real Name and Shipping Address:

Email address:

Will you ship internationally:

Link to your feedback:

Examples of your customs (at least three, the more the better):

List at least 5 ponies you'd like to see taken literally. Please keep the idea of this swap in mind and try to list ponies who's names can be accurately represented. If you want to list more than 5, go ahead. These can be from any generation as it's the names that are important here. That said, if you list a pony from a certain generation the custom you receive may not be made from that same generation; e.g. Copper Glow could be reinvented as a G3.

What generation do you prefer your customs in:

Is there a generation you would NOT like to receive:

Is there anything you DO NOT want on your pony; e.g. glitter, fabric, feathers:

Finally, any other information you'd like your partner to know, such as favorite colors, favorite poses, etc:

The details with skill are flexible, I was just thinking of more complicated things because that's where my brain went Poke Tounge But I'm sure it could be done without sculpting too or getting very involved.

I'm a Mad Scientist, it's hard for me to think normally Laugh

And the generations would be up to everyone's preferences, but like most swaps I think the majority would be G1 and G3.

I like that idea! Minty could smell like mint, or come with a bunch of candies. Pinkie Pie would be...PIE! Hehehe.

Yeah, I think this is adorable.

I like the idea of it being g1 ponies. the names are simpler but their symbols are usually less literal. g2 names seem to be more complex and g3 ponies have simple enough names but their symbols are usually pretty literal anyway.

this sounds cool! i think it would work best with most G1 ponies, you can always make the custom out of a G3 bait anyway.
if i can, i think i'd be in.
