This little gal would have been done back in February if I hadn’t managed to knock her off the back of the lightbox table and into hiding… *sighs*

Cloudburst ‘s another horse from the old body box, having sat two-thirds finished for roughly seven years—now that the last of the detail work is done, she’s capped off with a nice matte finish and is ready to find a new shelf to call home!

She has a shaded teal base, variegated mane and tail, realistic glossed eyes and plain black hooves. Her logo and seams have been removed, but I didn’t do any additional carving to her ears or hooves.

I have no idea if she’s Live Show Quality—and that’s something I should probably put some effort into researching. I don’t really have the budget to addend live shows, but maybe I can pick some brains over at Blab on how the fantasy show rings are looking nowadays. *ponders*
