CUSTOM

My Little Pony is a registered trademark of Hasbro, Inc. Therefore, customs are NEVER to be marketed as an authentic Hasbro production. Please note with all customs that you yourself may sell or display that they are original artworks and not that of Hasbro.  I encourage everyone to Always sign your custom!  Signing on the belly or a hoof bottom will not only identify the artist but also prevent the confusion of custom vs. real if the custom were to be re-sold.

Information contained herein is to assist you in making your very own My Little Pony customs. These methods are by my own technique that I have learned by trial and error after making customs for myself and by commission since 1997.  What works for me might not be the best way for you, so as with any art take each tutorial as a guide for yourself and find techniques that work best for you.

Good luck!
