I got this little guy in a body lot with no idea who painted him to start with. He was a flat black and white paint job, but his pattern didn’t quite follow the frame overo rules.

So I went back in and shaded the flat black into a deep dark bay, added a stripe of color down his back to make him a true frame overo, and mapped the whole shebang!

I think he turned out rather well, although his paint pattern still isn’t 100% realistic. He’s quite a looker on the shelf and I’m hoping he did end up in a home that at least photo shows… just because he took so long to map! *grin*
