This little buy was one of my later customs, as you can tell by the backdrop and the heavy pastel usage. I don’t remember if he was an Add-a-Foal or a random custom, but I do like the way he turned out! Buckskins and duns are a thousand times easier to pull off with pastels versus straight acrylics.

Dancing is a pretty basic little buckskin, although on retrospect I wish I had pulled the black markings a bit further up his legs. I do like the way the umber is a softer shade into the golden tone of the coat, I just think there’s too much length in the shading between the umber and the black.

His nose also came out a bit wonky, but that’s because pastels aren’t very forgiving if you aren’t watching the coverage. I do like pastels as a general medium, but they are a pain the in neck for any sort of detail work.

Someday I’m going to have to sit down and google some videos so I can see what I’m doing wrong… huzzah for the internet hivemind! *grin*
