Pony Mane and Tail Tutorial by Voodoo-Tiki Pony Mane and Tail Tutorial by Voodoo-Tiki

It appears you don't have PDF support in this web browser. Download PDF

Here it is, at last - a 14 page book with instructions on designing your own patterns for soft sculpture pony manes and tails! This is the question I'm asked about most when it comes to pattern-making, so hopefully this will help beginners out quite a bit. It covers the basic shapes and techniques you'll need to recreate most mane shapes and includes a photo walkthrough guide to pattern draping. 

Enjoy!

I'm not one for sewing ponies, but damn if this isn't useful.

The basic principles can be used for a lot of things, I just happen to get asked about manes a lot :)

So you would make Rarity's mane curl using nothing but darts?

Darts and stitching, yes. You can wire it, but I prefer a plush that doesn't have wires.

It sounds like a lot of work and frustration without wire haha.
