Live From the Workbench

Live From the Workbench 02-13-13

Okay, so technically this is the table in my living room and not the workbench… I get sidetracked easily. *solemn nod*

Painting while watching TV aside, you can see there’s a bunch of new faces in the piles! (As well as a few who I can’t seem to actually finish off). I still got folks who need to be photographed and uploaded, but that seems to be more or less par for the course. I’ll post them this week as well.

And yes, that’s totally a micro MLP who has ambled into the body box– I make no promises that she’ll be the last. *shifty eyes*

The Victims!

The pearl white doodle horse is only 15 minutes or so from being Doodle-complete and then he’s off for a nice coat of gloss.

The prancing foal drafter just has a lot of touch-up work still to do. She was one of the old WiP customs from 2005 and there’s a lot of clean-up to bring her up to something I’d consider acceptable today.

The olive green tobiano is one where I haven’t been able to color match the old color (another 2005 horse) so I’m cleaning him up by throwing some new color into the mix. He’s going under the pastels tonight to help blend the mix a little better.

The metallic purple and rose prancing foal is waffling between staying as is and picking up some subtle tiger striping (in the purple with the rose). Hmm…. *pokes horse*

The tiny blue foal is– a tiny blue foal. I have no idea what I’m going to do with him yet.

The yellow-orange dun is going under the pastels tonight as well to get some blending going and probably some extra detailing with leg barring and whatnot. Yet another horse that is insisting that chrome is for other folks. *sighs*

The My Little Pony is going to be a Home Herd horse and is totally going to be an MLP avatar for me because lo, I am an Earth Pony kinds gal. ๐Ÿ™‚

The other two prepped models are going to be something, but I have no idea what yet. I’m pretty sure they’ll show up in next weeks post as well!
