Live From The Workbench

Thanks to the attack of a killer migraine over the weekend I didn’t get anywhere near as much done as I hoped, so here’s the current line-up on the workbench (as of five minutes ago).

I’m going to sit down and work on them right after I upload this, so hopefully I’ll be able to finally check some of them off my to-do list!

Right now I’m running about two weeks behind on the show donation and several months behind on the custom mini whinnie. *sighs*

Photo Setup, Take Nine Thousand and Six

Get Good Photos

You’d think this wouldn’t take as long! But with the new camera setup I’m down to just tweaking the color balance and then I should be good to go. As you can see I’ve done my best to remove as many variables as I can from the photography equation, which hopefully means once I find the right settings I won’t have to tweak them again.

Horses will be listed to Facebook for ‘first dibs’ and then to Etsy later in the week. (I’m toying with the idea of listing them one a day, but mostly likely I will give into my lazy nature and upload them all at once.)

  • Ryhmer – Orange-bay G3 Andalusian
  • Cliff Notes – Blue and purple doodle G2 Scratching Foal
  • Conficturum – Black and metallic green doodle G2 Quarter Horse
  • Cid sin’Terminar – Black and metallic purple doodle G2 Warmblood
  • Underhill Playboy – Metallic Green-bay G3 Warmblood
  • Conundrum – Dark purple-bay and black doodle G3 Driving Horse

Finish Me Darnit!

Pimp Ride Lives Show Donation – Tonight I’m starting from the head and working my way down with the final blending coat. I’ll be adding the gloss layer as I go, so the finished bits will be protected. Expected completion date is Wednesday night, depending on how fast things go.

Black Chestnut Mini Whinnie – Yeah… still not done. *sighs* I’ve painted the white markings about sixteen times now– I just need to get one I don’t want to wash off again!

    Oh, those are all so pretty! I love the shimmery lilac/mint-green G3 Andalusian in the back row!

      I was home sick yesterday and may possibly have perpetrated mass Fantasy upon my body box, so there’s even more little guys to upload tonight than expected. 😉

      The one in the back is a donation to a live show and I should have proper finished pictures of him tomorrow night. If my luck holds… *crosses fingers*

      It’s odd, but as I get back into the writing groove I’m also picking up my painting as well– muses flock together I suppose. 😀
