Bastet - my little egypt cat-goddess by puush Bastet - my little egypt cat-goddess by puush
I was commissioned to do another egypt armored pony like my Anubis. And so I made Bastet.
Base was a G1 Bride Pony, her jaw got surgery to open and to have teeth. (No idea how often I sculpted them because they broke). Her tail and hindleg-claws were similar difficult and I can't recall how many sculpting sessions Bastet got... there were many!

Painted in lots of layers of acrylic paint (the golden rims were painted 3 times, first in ocre, then twice in gold, double sealed with glossy sealant) finally sealed matte and glossy.

I must admit that I was happy she didn't need to be rehaired. lol.
She comes with her Ankh-Battlestaff. Originally I wanted to give her some sai too, but ... eh you know... she has no thumbs anyway. ^^
Of course her armor is roughly inspired by stargate.

I hope you like her. I do!

Man, seeing all your cool pony mods is really inspiring. I really like the armour on this one in particular.. and most of all: the butt eyes. Those are some great butt eyes. Were they intended as her cutiemark, or just as decoration?

Haha, thank you so much. I love that you can do nearly everything with ponys.
Well, the butt eyes were a bit decoration and a bit cutiemark I guess. I didn't give it much thought. I just needed some eyecatcher in this area and eyes... catch eyes pretty good. ^^
Glad you like her.

nice that can go in the pony history of ancient egypt

Haha, that would be cool, to have the entire history of ponys worked out as customs. ^^ Thanks

can you do a pharaoh or is that idea taken
puush Jan 24, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
I don't know. I made several egyptian pony customs, so far only gods: Seth, Anubis, Bastet. And many other custom artists have done egyptian ponys as well. But a pharaoh would be great. Someone should make one. ^^
