Night Life (Breyer Stablemate)

Night Life

This little gal is one of my many Hackney Pony resculpts from the saddlebred mold. It was one of my favorite customizing options (after the draft crosses) because it made such a visual jump from the original model.

Night Life has had her face rescultped, her mane and tail removed, and a short bobbed tail and a braided mane added. The mane braids could use a lot of work and I’m still playing around with ways to make them more realistic.

The black chestnut is one of those colors I’ve played around with, but haven’t been able to pull off 100%. I haven’t had much luck finding high resolution reference photos so I’m never quite sure how red the points are supposed to be.

Still, quite a nice little model, although I think my techniques have gotten better (there’s one more custom hackney still waiting on my workbench).
