Applejack and Pinkie Pie by renegadecow Applejack and Pinkie Pie by renegadecow
What do you get when you put Applejack and Pinkie Pie in one automaton? I'm not really sure myself, but it certainly looks like a lot of fun! WOOOOO!!!
Both ponies, stand, apples, balloons and trophy body are carved from Philippine mahogany. The gears and trophy figurehead are made of Narra hardwood. The figures are hand painted with enamel and protected with clear flat lacquer. Both ponies stand at 5" and the whole piece measures 8 1/2" long, 5" wide, and 7 3/4" high. It took 124 hours to make.

Watch them woooing at the trophy:

That's awesome! It would've been cool if you could have added a noise box (like I vaguely remember you doing on one of your older pieces) so it sounds like their woo'ing. But I honestly don't know how much more trouble that'd be, the piece is incredible, regardless!

I'm sure that even with my best attempt it would have sounded like a dying cat.

S..s...s.sssweet Celestia. Even if it's not the most complex one in terms of automation, it's beautiful in terms of detailind and painting. As always, you've done a marvelous job, maker. The nice freshness of colour and the different textures used here merit a lot of praise.

I loved the fact you could take the saddle bags and hat off of AJ. I just thought it was amusing to see Pinkie carrying the apples in the video. :D

My only regret is I couldn't put the hat on Pinkie. Maybe a Sherlock hat and pipe for her next time.

Amazing work as usual!  I have so much respect for your automatons.  They are well carved and painted, and the wood latticework adds a beautiful touch.  Plus you always put neat little things inside where the gears are!  My children and I love all your work and look forward to seeing more :)

That is pretty cool.
The only part of the figures that I don't like are the ears. They look very odd to me when they are facing like this.

To each his own. Personally I think the mickey mouse way of sculpting ears looks funny to me.

Well, horses can rotate their ears through 180 degrees, so it is perfectly normal, even if that particular position looks slightly odd.

very cute but still think the gearing on some should 
be changed so you dont have to turn it so fast?
Reply
:iconrenegadecow:
renegadecow Featured By Owner Oct 2, 2013  Professional Artisan Crafter
I prefer a higher gearing as it smooths out the motion due to mechanical advantage.
