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.

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

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. ^^
