This category covers everything from the dark black-bays all the way up to the flashy red-bay colorings.

This little guy beat out Suicide Kings by a nose to be my first finished custom for 2012! Not a bad way to start the year off, even if I’m running a little behind schedule… (doh!) (more…)

Landshark’s Shadow

Landshark's Shadow

Make: Breyer
Scale: Stablemate
Mold: Warmblood (G2)
Color: Bay
Gallery: Bay
Medium: Acrylics, Pastels, Prismacolor Pencils
Status: Painted 200? and Home Herd

This little guy was one of my favorite customs and I regretted selling him almost as soon as I’d put him in the mail. Amazingly I stumbled across him on MH$P a few years later and was able to bring him home again! He’s now safly ensconced in the Home Herd and won’t be going anywhere (except a photo show or two).

Scoville’s Ghost

Scoville's Ghost

Make: Breyer
Scale: Stablemate
Mold: Trotting Foal (G2)
Color: Bay Tobiano
Gallery: Tobiano
Medium: Acrylics and Pastels
Status: Painted 200? and Sold 200?

This little guy is quite the show-off! He’s got a rich bay base, complex tobiano pattern, and a Sculpy base that has been covered in sand and train grass. It’s models like Ghost that remind me I might possibly know what I’m doing… and there’s nothing like sharp looking foal to kick in the ego. (more…)

Nachtlied

Nachtlied

Make: Breyer
Scale: Stablemate
Mold: Paso Fino (G2)
Color: Dark Bay
Gallery: Bay
Medium: Acrylics
Status: Painted 200? and Sold 200?

Nachtlied Is German for ‘Night Song’ and this started the dark bay German silliness that followed in Nachtmaus and Nachtkatze. I know that these little guys are probably renamed as soon as they head out the door to their new owners, but coming up with names is one of my favorite parts of the process. (more…)

Nobody’s Fool

Nobody's Fool

Make: Breyer
Scale: Stablemate
Mold: Trotting Foal (G2)
Color: Bay
Gallery: Bay
Medium: Acrylics and Pastels
Status: Painted 200? and Sold 200?

Nobody is a simple resculpt, with some added feathering and smidge of epoxy added to his face to change the profile. He was created as part of a custom order– yet another unnamed foal that got a moniker post-sale (I just got bored of all the ‘Unnamed’ showing up in the galleries). (more…)

Epona’s Chimera

Epona's Chimera

Make: Breyer
Scale: Stablemate
Mold: Morgan (G2)
Color: Bay Brindle
Gallery: Other Color
Medium: Acrylics
Status: Painted 200? and Sold 200?

This little guy was a custom order for a color I had never painted before… and to be fair I’m not sure that he really counts as having painted one now. *pokes horse* I ended up with something that looks a little too much like a tiger and not enough like an actual brindle pattern. (more…)
