This little guy was an Add-a-Foal for Infernal Whimsy that I painted in the same color pattern. I was planning on giving him a ‘real’ name, but Firefoal had a nice ring to it—so it stuck.
Firefoal was painted using a solid yellow base that met without blending against the black haunches. Then I went back over with reds, oranges, yellows, and the black with tiny little flame licks. It’s not particularly realistic, but it was a fun take on the idea of a campfire horse.
I’m pretty please with the way this little guy (and the adult) turned out, but I’m not sure if it’s a technique I’ll try again later. It’s very time consuming and works best if I don’t pay attention to what I’m doing… and that’s harder than you’d expect.
