Portrait Horse: Dandy
While this gal wasn’t my first custom order on a traditional scale mold (that would be Subterfuge), she’s my first portrait horse that wasn’t a Stablemate! Dandy has been the hardest thing I’ve ever attempted to paint and it has been one of the most enjoyable learning experiences.
From a blind eye to the not-quite-shell-not-quite-grey hooves, Dandy offered me a chance to try out a lot of things I’d never touched before. I’m actually going to be going back and creating how-to posts out of all the detail work I did on her (hooves, eyes, etc.) so this post is more of a image spam than anything else.
Mold: Paso Fino (G2)
Color: Black Tobiano
Status: Painted 200? and Sold 200?

Mold: Saddlebred (G2)
Status: Painted late 2002-ish and Sold early 2003-ish
