Fat Hawks #001-003

After making songbirds I couldn’t resist the urge to add a little more feathery goodness to the Fat Animal Magnet lineup! (Although these little guys are slightly more pointy than their backyard cousins.)

Sadly this is one of the sculptures that didn’t come out as well when I made the mold, so the beaks are a little less intimidating that planned. But I’m starting to get better at mold making, so I’m looking forward to the resculpt (and recast) of this little guy.

Clover Tobiano - Right Angle

4th Annual Jackson County 4-H and Open Model Show Donation

What better post for Thanksgiving that this long overdue workbench favorite!

This handsome gal is a Breyer Stablemate G3 Tennessee Walking Horse painted into a clover-spotted green tobiano with a white clover star on her forehead. She was a donation to the 4th Annual Jackson County 4-H and Open Model Show which was held in October of this year. She was a sibling donation to the landscape jumper I did for the M.O.M. Live Show donation, run by the same showholder.

I’ve gotten a little obsessed over converting horse patterns into 4-H clover-friendly variations. After the extended blanket appaloosa I painted last year, I wanted to see what I could pull off with a tobiano pattern.

I ended up doing most of the clover shapes in green, but there are a few places where the pattern flips and you can see the white clovers overlapping the green.

Topped off with a lilac ribbon and realistic eyes, I was really sorry to see this gal go! I’m hoping she’s found a home with someone who will fall in love with her cloverness as much as I did. 🙂
