All I want to do is sculpt, really. 
But every year the holidays seem to bring along disaster. For example, last December? My best friends house burned down. Pretty sure I have a DA Journal entry from that event too..
This December, my big sister started seeing flashes of light in her eye. Long story short, she has a medium sized tumor in her eye and it's ocular melanoma. I've never even heard of this until now. She's having a CT scan next week to make sure cancer hasn't spread anywhere else in her body. She will be having surgery to remove the tumor, but could potentially lose her eye. If she doesn't, it probably won't work properly ever again. 
Last week, my grandma had a major stroke. She seemed to be turning around, only thing being affected was her speech. Then she started having seizures. Doctors put her in a coma to stop the seizures, however, she isn't waking up from her coma and tomorrow she's probably going to be taken off the ventilator. 
Needless to say, my nerves are shot. I can't focus on anything. I don't have much family.
I just wanted to get some of that out into the endless abyss that is the Internet.

Princess Luna WiP (Finished Sculpt) by Reyndrys
Princess Luna WiP (Finished Sculpt)
With this Luna I am also creating a new tutorial! My old tutorial is .. well.. old. I've updated a lot of my techniques to make ponies stronger and easier to handle. 
This Luna has an inside made from Milliput, wire armature and I may or may not have slipped an old ring within her mane from an ex boyfriend.
The rest of her is made from a 60/40 mix of Super Sculpey and Sculpey Firm - Her ear, crown, horn and tail base are made from resin putty.
I need to finish sanding her, prime her, then finally PAINT. My least favorite part.

WiP Princess Luna Sculpt (Tutorial in the works!) by Reyndrys
WiP Princess Luna Sculpt (Tutorial in the works!)
She started out as what I called "CelesaLunaTwiligh" because I knew I wanted to sculpt a fullsize princess pony, but I couldn't decide who. Cadence was my best princess, so I didn't want to do her again yet. My Princess Twilight broke in the making - I'm still planning on fixing her, but she's hard to come back to... so it came down to Celestia and Luna. My previous Celestia looks like a toy. No expression, no pose, pretty boring. However, my princess Luna (or should I say Wuna, because it was her first appearance version) was made with Sculpey III and is WAY out of date. So I settled on full-grown Luna. 
I am taking notes and photos along this sculpting journey so I can take you all with me in my new and updated tutorial! 
Sorry for the potato photo, I was excited to post her. I'm considering getting a light box so I can take better photos. I don't know how to use photoshop to make photos better either x_x

I have this oddball supervisor that insists on giving all the girls a piece of Dove chocolate at the end of the day. (My theory is, he's pulling classic conditioning Pavlov style and trying to make us like him with chocolate because yeah.. nobody likes this guy) Anyways, Dove chocolate has little sayings on the inside of the wrapper. Mine said, "Go anywhere but home" 
Just letting that sink in a bit.
Why? Please tell me there's not a severed head in my bed or a murderer in my closet. I understand the quote is trying to be motivational, but first glance I thought, "Creeper be creepin."
Seriously, take it down a notch, Dove. 
In other news, I have seriously been missing sculpting. I've fallen into a routine that's starting to get old. 40 hours of work, 2 Russian Language classes, chores, homework, and running 5 kilometers once a week. What little free time I have gets packed up with things like appointments or important phonecalls, and now that it's December, Christmas shopping. 
If anybody knows me, they know I'm not a fan of Christmas. Minnesota usually has WAY too much snow and WAY too cold of a temperature, but I can tolerate that. The thing I don't like is people who combine my birthday with Christmas.
I treated myself to a few extra days off around my birthday so I can SCULPT. For anyone who is interested, I'm sculpting a new Celestia. (I might change my mind and make her a Luna.. but it's iffy) Along with this new sculpt, I'm making a new tutorial! My Rainbow Dash tutorial is pretty old, and my methods have changed a bit (not to mention some of the supplies) 
So hopefully I'll get that going and posted soon. I'm pretty excited for it :)

Step one: Purchase The Masters Brush Cleaner and Preserver.
Step two: Follow step one on the back of the container.
Step three: Follow step two on the back of the container and "Swirl brush in compound and work into lather, rinse, repeat as necessary until brush is clean"
After following step three and learning your version of 'swirl' is much different than the instructions version of 'swirl', you should notice your brush bristles are now pointed in every direction in an irreversible manner!
~**Congratulations!**~
You have now destroyed your 14 dollar paint brush!

Optional Step: Stare deeply into your destroyed brush, contemplating your decisions while fruitlessly trying to push the bristles back to where they should be.
Optional Step two: Pout about it online.
