Rainbow Dash Automaton by renegadecow Rainbow Dash Automaton by renegadecow
Rainbow Dash is awesome. So awesome that I was compelled to take 120-ish working hours of my life to sculpt this hand-cranked automaton. From mane to tail the entire figure is carved out of Philippine mahogany as is the base and Tank, her pet tortoise. I then painted the two characters in enamel and top coated with flat lacquer. The pony stands 4 3/4" high and is 5 1/4" long. Together with the base, total height is 7 1/4".

OMG! Rainbow Dash is awsome! This is sooo cool. I love the movement in the video. I wish I could make something like that. I would love to have my own pony do something like that. And it's so cool that you put Tank in there too. Great job! I just love it!!! Have you ever thought of putting up some tutorials on how to do some of this stuff and how to get it moving just right? I know if I tried it without any help, it would be crap.

Can you help me? I'm looking to make my own automaton but I need to make much smaller gears and one oddly shaped kind. Is wood really the only way to make your own gears? I don't really know how I would do it in wood.

:iconrenegadecow:
renegadecow Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2012  Professional Artisan Crafter
You can make gears out of anything, metal preferably to make really small ones or even plastic. I choose wood simply for the artistry although it's harder to work with.

TheGraveyardKey Featured By Owner Jul 28, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
The main problem I have is that I don't have one of those saw table things for precise cutting, and I really have no idea how I would make the taller gears,you know, the ones shaped like tables. Is there a website or something where you can just buy different sizes of gears.

This is beautiful in its intricacy and yet it somehow still achieves a look of elegant simplicity. I love the smooth gears, so deftly crafted to bring your creation to life. One hundred and twenty hours well spent, I'd say.
