Status: Painted 200? and Sold 200?

This little gal was a favor for a friend and was in need of a little TLC when I got her. I think she turned out pretty well considering that I hadn’t done a lot of sculpting at the time. Plus I was finally cresting the learning curve with basic paint jobs, so that side of the equation came out well. (more…)

This little guy/gal was an Add-a-Foal that was sold with Foxtrot Echo. I did a lot of ‘mini-me’ customs when I was selling on eBay. (Hey, for $5 a foal it wasn’t a bad deal!) (more…)

Portrait Horse: Lace (Breyer Stablemate)

Lace

I think this little gal was a custom ordered portrait horse that I think came in on the same order with Sierra. Someday I will find the notes and all these little mysteries will be cleared up… but for now I’ll just have to guess.

As you can see by the photos, my Lace is much too red and any attempt at shading was pretty much tossed to the wind. I’m not sure if I was just having problems with the smaller size of the foal or if the old computer monitor tinted the picture somehow. *pokes model*

This is one of the few horses that I desperately wish I could replace—I know I could do so much better now and it’s frustrating to look at her.

Fire Eater

I know that this little gal was a custom order and that she was one of my later customs, but that’s all I have on her right now. I’m pretty sure she was sold as a pair with Scoville’s Ghost, but I’m not sure to whom or when.

While I do like the bay coloring, I wish I’d pulled better references for the tobiano pattern. I was relying too heavily on my imagination when I did this the first time and the realism suffers. She does look nice, I just wish she looked real. *pokes horse*
