Sorry for the lack of updates, February turned out to be a little crazier than I had expected. But crazy or not, there are horses to paint and updates to post, so onwards!
As you can tell by the mess, I’ve got a good herd to sort out into my WiP piles. Per my earlier resolution, I’m going to be focusing a lot more on fantasy this month, but really pushing hard to get these little guys done and into the store.
In my push to get more horses done I started working on the duplicate bodies from the January order. Thus I’m not including the ‘prepping’ horses anymore, since it would dominate the list.
I also pulled out a lot of the old body box horses and have added the ones to the list that I’m not stripping via Easy Off or Pine Sol (post on those two methods coming next week!). So no pics this time other than the large group shot above and the shelf shot below… but more finished horse posts to come soon.
I hope. *crosses fingers*
|Unnamed||G3 Highland Pony||Gold body, Copper Tobiano markings, black mane and tail||Working on tobiano markings and body color. Metallics are a paint and a half to get decent coverage on, so he’s getting constant touch-ups.|
|Unnamed||G2 Cantering Foal||Teal Blanket Appaloosa||Appy pattern needs to be refined and then it’s just eyes and hooves.|
|Unnamed||G3 Thoroughbred||Teal Doodle Pony||Doodle pattern is coming along slowly, the micron pens are much more smudge-prone than expected (darnit)|
|Unnamed||G3 Warmblood||Bay Minimal Tobiano||Tobiano markings, more minimal than originally intended, but I think he looks good.|
|Unnamed||Maggie Bennett’s Micro Friesian||Palomino||Detail work and possibly some body touch up.|
|Unnamed||Maggie Bennett’s Micro Friesian||Black||Eyes, hooves, body color is pretty much set|
|Unnamed||G3 Arabian||Troll Druid||working on details, adding body stripes and I need to finish off the base.|
|Unnamed||G2 Andalusian||Dark Red-bay||Adding the black shadings with pastels, trying to decide if he needs chrome or not.|
|Unnamed||G2 Shire||Rose Sabino||Fixing base color issues, then a realistic sabino pattern is waiting in the wings.|
|Unnamed||G2 Shire||Yellow Sabino||Fixing base color issues and trying to decide if I want to go more fantasy with the sabino pattern. *ponders*|
|Unnamed||G3 Mustang||Black Roan Sabino||Basecoat is almost done, pondering roaning methods. Am thinking splatterpaint, but it might be fun to try the colored pencil and pastels as well.|
|Unnamed||G3 Hanoverian||Green-bay Leopard Appaloosa||Basecoat is almost done, but I am not using these greens again. Opaque colors are not my friend! *mutter*|
|Unnamed||G2 Thoroughbred||Bay Extended Blanket Appaloosa||Basecoat is almost done, need to decide if he’s going to be a fewspot or not.|
|Unnamed||G2 Trotting Foal||Black Tobiano Draft-cross resculpt||Touching up the feathering since it’s craptastic. The rest of the horse is fine, so it’s a careful line to be walking.|
|Unnamed||G3 Belgian||Flaxen Chestnut?||Has been drawn and quartered, needs massive resculpting. This is my realistic one, so… yeah.|
|Unnamed||G3 Warmblood||Dappled red/orange going gray||Ears are being resculpted, a mane and tail to follow!|
