It looks like I'll probably wrapping up this month with a total of twelve figures completed, (the majority of them currently being 90% done and finished up during the next few days.  Particularly the Lunar Republic that has been taking far longer than it should have.) >>;;  And while that's fewer than estimated, it's still way higher than the rate of new commissions taken per month, which means we're still gaining ground on catching up.

And to be honest, the main reason I set ten figures to be worked on in November rather than fifteen was because I knew that there would be stragglers that didn't quite get finished during the September/October blitz.  Mostly figures that had an accessory or two that proved to be more difficult than I thought, or a piece of clothing (in particular, I need to get some fur-textured fabric samples for several commissions.)  In fact, I'm not even going to set a specific completion list for December at all, because I know there will be a bunch of not-quite-done figures I'll want to get out the door by the time I go home for Christmas.  But in general--every commission that was ordered prior to this summer will be finished by the end of the year.  And the commissions that will have had modeling work done by then (but probably won't be fully sanded/painted yet) are Neon Lights, Bowtie, Nightmarity, and Mach.

Next week I'll be taking a break from the modeling to paint keychains for a local convention, but since I'm fairly ahead of schedule on the modeling side, it shouldn't impact the production schedule much.

So, all that being said, the persistence of bills and such means that commissions slots are open for November.  Same as last month, only five slots, so if you've been wanting one, grab it now.  February-ish completion date?  (As always, take turnaround time estimates with a jar of salt.  As the modeling queue shrinks, my estimates are gradually getting more accurate, but it still is best to treat it like a kickstarter reward of the distant future.)

Hey there!
You all can call me Nyasu!
My partner is RabidPeep and we print ponies.


What program do you use for your 3D modeling?

I use 3ds Max for everything. Most of my earlier models were intended for video game use, so Max was a natural choice. You can download it from the Autodesk website if you're a student.

Can I download your models for Gmod / Source Filmmaker / my own printing?

You cannot. These models are made for our personal 3D printing commissions. They put food on the table. :P

What kind of printer do you have? How much was it?

We use a Reprap Prusa Mendel. My partner Rabid bought it for around $800, assembled it from scratch, and does all the maintenance for it. Have any more questions about the process of running a printer or making models for printing? Feel free to throw one of us a message!

What made you guys decide to take up 3D printing?

Owning a 3D printer had been a long-held dream of Rabid's, and last summer it finally became possible. I heard about it and wanted in because it sounded cool as hell and was a good opportunity to build up my 3D modeling portfolio. Our skill sets and work styles are perfectly suited to collaborating on a project like this, as he has the technical expertise, I have the artistic expertise, and we're both decently knowledgeable in the other's field so it's easy to communicate. Neither of us could pull this off without the other.

Do you sell 3D prints of non-pony things?

We definitely intend to eventually. The problem is that they will take longer than ponies by virtue of not having a uniform body shape. Pokémon and anthros are top of the to-do list. Video game characters are an interesting case because there's a possibility that we could simply print the already-existing in-game model if it's available online. Feel free to ask.

Do you guys do trades?

Not at this time, sorry. But if you're a plushie maker we might be forced to reconsider.

Why hasn't my commission been printed yet?

Ask Rabid. @_@ He runs the printer and has control over everything on that end of the process so whenever anyone asks me this all I can do is stand there feeling kind of embarrassed.

How do I commission a running pony animation?

Sorry, but I don't do animated commissions anymore. Unless you're one of the handful of people still on the waitlist of old, but if you are, chances you wouldn't be asking this.

Are you ever going to finish that Locking up the Sun animation?

I'm amazed that people still want to see this completed. The answer is yes, and I'll probably work on it as soon as we get the commission list under control.

do you do art trades?

Man you're stuff is good. How small can you make figures. I was contemplating something along the lines of ones that can fit on a D&D square.

Hi there~ I was just wondering if I could get a rough quote on how much  it would be to get a standard sized Blossomforth, Cloudkicker and a figure of my OC Sunset Skies? 

Thanks in advance <3

I was just wondering if you could give me a rough estimate on how much it would be to request a figure of my OC from you?
Clawed-Nyasu Featured By Owner Oct 9, 2014  Professional General Artist
Heya--the baseline for most standard OCs with the modeling fee included is $80 + shipping.  Anything higher than that is up to how complex the character is.
Umbreon24 Featured By Owner Oct 10, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Great, thanks ^-^
I'll keep that in mind then
