Painting variations on the night sky has always been one of my favorite things to do and when this little guy insisted on being blue,…
There are some colors that just beg to be on ponies... and Denim was one of them! ;)
Reflections on water or spider webbing in turquoise? The patterns were so similar I couldn't help but play around and this dolphin magnet is ready to shine!

Normally I donate custom model horses to model horse live shows, but this time around I figured a small herd of Fat Pony magnets might be more fun! :)
Fat Buffalos #001-004
It’s May and I still have a bunch of these old posts left to catch up on! Yikes! O_O;
Most of my relatives are from Buffalo, NY so when it came time to picking critters for the Fat Animal Magnets for Christmas, these guys were a shoe-in! 🙂
I made an extra buffalo because I figured I’d need at least one more and it turned out that I probably should have doubled the herd. I still have another Bills buffalo in the pipeline and to be honest now I really want one of my own…
This mold had a lot of issues with the horns, but that was mostly because I was casting these quickly. So the amount of resculpting on the Christmas presents was a lot higher than the ones I’m prepping now. I’m actually torn on if I should make another mold of this guy or just wait until I finish the resculpt. (It seems there are always things I want to improve on once I get the resin cast out! 🙂 )
Pronghorn Buck #001 – Right
Sometimes you need a little bit of whimsy in the realistic lineup and this tiny little guy was it! (Amusingly I bought the TOOB of animals back in December of 2013, but I didn’t finish painting him until this January! Procrastinating artist is procrastinating.)
He is a Pronghorn Buck from the Safari Ltd North American Wildlife TOOB (697004) and while he’s sporting the right patterns, it’s in a hue not normally found in nature. …To be fair, the high gloss finish is also something nature tends to avoid, but a matte finish just didn’t do him justice.
He’s had his seams touched up, but not completely removed and the Safari logo is still on his tummy. It’s hard to work around the fur texture and this isn’t meant to be a show piece so I wasn’t as militant about prepping as I usually am. 🙂
