Zecora's Hut by frozenpyro71 Zecora's Hut by frozenpyro71
EDIT: 1st place winner of the EQD Equestria Model Contest
By Celestia's beard! I dont believe it.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
My rendition of Zecora's Hut from MLP:FIM, built for the Equestria Daily model contest.

Sculpted from Milliput over a base of plaster and painted with acrylics. For scale purposes the base is 30cm square and it stands 25cm high.

Its not quite show accurate but near as I could get it :P

Any comments, questions, criticism or queries are most welcome.

Obliatory legal stuff:
I do not own any rights and have no ties to the creators of MLP, all rights belong to their respective owners.

Awesome work. What did you win ?

Crits ? Hmm...Nothing on the model, but the photography technique could propably be improved.
Maybe a better background than black, the actual wood background from the show for example ?
I'm not really good at photography.

I can believe it! There's a lot of great detail and very nice layout to the whole thing. It definitely has the feel of her place and the Everfree Forest itself. Now that I have a good look at it there's so much to speculate on, but I don't want to distract from what a great job you did bringing her home to life (and especially since it is made of something alive).

Now, is there any special meaning we can read into the fact that those who study advanced magic, though very different types, both live inside trees? :D

Zecora will always be a regularly recurring character, I'm sure. She's very charming and adds some exotic style to contrast the general "rules of style" in Equestria proper. Her rhymes are more than just cute because they reveal her answers and wisdom almost completely but also force us to dope it out a bit. It's great when kids are first like, "Oh, so that's what she meant" afterwards and then later say, "She just told the ponies clear as day and they still don't get it? Are they even trying?"

Yet what gave Zecora my heart was this most primal yet enchanting picture by Kloudmutt. While it may be considered simple, the mood and feeling portrayed struck me like lighting, right to the core. It's still my favorite of favorites from him, and of Zecora. Even if people perusing my spectacular favourites" would think it out of place, that pictures is the reason I created that collection in the first place.


Awkward Rant regarding the tree thing that you should feel free to skip:

Only because I recently read a book about Viking mythology, I find parallels ion the differences between the zebras and ponies versus two distinct types of Norse gods (though only because I'm looking too hard?). The trees would signify earth magic of the Vanir, gods of life, fertility, straightforwardness, yet also demanding in order to keep balance; meanwhile Equestria seems to run with (near perfect) order under a caste system, controlled by unicorns: some who make the rules and dole out justice (but hopefully don't engage in duplicity like the Ęsir); others are free to become artists, designers, even artisans who still automatically outrank the earth ponies.

It's solid all the way through. The middle is a core of plaster and other packing coated in a layer of Milliput.

Thank you.
If i had to guess aboout 50 hours including drying and curing time for the sculpt and 20 or so for painting. Bare in mind that is a very rough guestimate, I worked on and off it for about 3 weeks.
