‘Pouca Sombra’ means ‘Little Shade’ in Portuguese, which follows the general Babelfish-themed naming patterns for the Paso Fino mold. Someday I will learn to resist romance languages… but not quite yet.
I bought this little gal off of eBay in a damaged custom lot along with Faded Glory, Double Dip, and two other bodies that I haven’t gotten to yet. I’m not sure who the original artist was, but the base coat was in good shape and only needed a little tweaking.
While I’m not sure who painted the model to start with, I do remember the changes I made (I’ll pull the ‘before’ photos if I can find them). I removed a blaze from the face, darkened the mane and tail to solid black, redid the hooves and eyes, and touched up a few small rubs in the paint.
I love taking these body lots and giving the models a new lease on life. I wish I could give credit to the original artists—I’ll keep looking in my notes, but it’s rather a hit or miss. I didn’t even sign most of my own work, so I know folks will have no clue who my little guys are after the first resale.
Ah well, the fun is in the creation… but I do sort of wish I knew how my little dudes fared five years down the line.
