Derpy Dreams by renegadecow Derpy Dreams by renegadecow
For a butterhooved pony that she is in her waking hours, Derpy Hooves makes the cutest of ponies in restful sleep. One can only wonder what this lovely little Pegasus dreams of. Just be sure to steer her clear of vases or lamps lest she knock them down with a flick of her tail, a kick of her leg, or out of sheer unfortunate happenstance.
Derpy, the cloud and stand are made out of Philippine mahogany with the gears being carved from Narra hardwood. The figures are painted in enamel and protected by clear lacquer. Lying down, derpy measures 3" high while the whole piece is 6" high, 7 3/8" long and 3 1/4" wide. It took 64 hours to make.

Watch her sleeping:

That is so adorable it almost hurts.  The craftsmanship in the figure alone is gorgeous, but the addition of the handmade clockworks takes your work into another dimension.

Beautiful! Did this present any difficulties in design that previous automata did not? I'd think it might, since all of the movements here are involuntary reflexes, not deliberate actions, and also there probably wasn't a lot of material in the show you could consult for reference. Fantastic work as always.

Thanks. Took some brain scratching indeed and watching videos of sleeping pets for inspiration.

Have you considered doing Octavia with her cello? Classy Pony is best -_^

Thanks. I can't really think up of any other way to do Octavia so that's to be expected when I get around to it.

This is amazing! I think the only thing wrong with it is her tail moves to much and it's not very smooth moving. The hoof and her wings are perfect though! It's so awesome :S

Out of context, it feels weird to click a link that says "watch her sleeping."

That being said, you've made another incredible automaton. Seriously, this is fantastic. I love how this one is more about fine details, like the tapping of a hoof and small feather twitches. It's really relaxing to watch, too. You're a real craftsman, sir.

Oh man! :love:

I love what you did with Derpy's hoof, and I especially love the wing motion. That must have taken forever to put together!

how much would it cost for you to make one with Derpy?

renegadecow Featured By Owner Feb 7, 2014  Professional Artisan Crafter
That depends on what you'd have her doing. Send me a note if you have an idea.

Ok how bout Derpy sitting holding a muffin and her head wobbles side to side with her tail wagging.
And beneath her Dinky sleeping. What do you think? How much do you think it would cost???
