In Progress

Happy Holidays everyone and early best wishes for the new year! Here's a quick update on the horses in progress. All are clickable for bigger pics.

Dese's head is nearly done; there are a few touchups and "oomphs" to do there, but it's getting close. The rest is just a dapple basecoat laying out basically where stuff goes and needs a lot of work yet.

Fenwick is pretty much done with his body color. He needs a couple touchups and then he gets his mane and tail and pretty red bow!

This Working Girl also just has her first dapple coat, but it went on so nice I probably only have one or two coats to go to finish her body. :-D

And last but not least, Mini Nahar is going to be a grey sabino with lots of nice roaned out edges to his markings. Lots of work to do there!

In Progress

Well hi there! It seems like hardly any time at all has passed since the last blog post, but the date stamp proves otherwise... Much of that time was spent finishing up Deseoso, so there hasn't been much to share anyway! A couple new minis worked their way into the schedule and they haven't been seen here yet. So without any further ado, the finished horses (pictures are clickable for full galleries):

There are some new things to share as well. These horses are all going to be some flavor of dapple grey. Some will be rosier than others and their shades vary from mostly dark to completely greyed out:

And last but not least, these are all quick mockups of medallions I am working on as time allows. They're very rough at the moment, but they're fleshed out enough to give you an idea of what they will look like. The theme for the round shapes is "horses at play" and the theme for the rectangles is "horses interacting with stable elements."
