I’m sure there’s a perfectly good reason why I took sales photos of this guy without having his eyes finished… but darned if I can think of what is was. *pokes horse*

Magics Promise

This little guy was one of my few resculpts that didn’t have the Saddlebred mold as a base. I think the face came out well, but the feathering needs some work.

I’m not sure if you can tell, but I also added a bit to his tail to correct for a manufacturing flaw. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to get him to stand on his own, even with the tail, which is why he’s on the base.

He is, of course, named after one of the Heralds of Valdemar books by Mercedes Lackey, as is his brother-in-mold Storm Rising.

(We’ll ignore the fact that Companions are white with blue eyes and that he’d make a lousy Shin’a’in castoff even if you overlook his color.)

My name is Martha Bechtel and I write fantasy and science fiction stories, paint small model horses silly colors, cast resin and plaster magnets, code random code (and Wordpress plugins)... Come on in and join in the fun!
