I waffled about labeling this little guy a straight tobiano since the edges of his markings have more of a sabino flavoring, but he’s fantasy horse so I figured what the heck! *grin*

I seem to have hit a pretty nice stride on the foals at the end of my run back in the mid-2000’s. Lincoln was one of the last horses I painted and I can’t see anything that I’d change on him.

One of the great things about my current camera and the old lightbox was that I got to take good photos. Being able to see the flaws while a model was in progress really helped me to clean up the mistakes as I went.

Of course being able to see the mold at several times life-size does create problems, since I can’t fix everything that I find. It comes down to an odd balance between fixing what you can see in the photos and what you can see in real-life.

Still, this was a really nice color combination and if the copper paint survived the long hibernation, I think I’ll give it another go!
