PostSubject: Custom on the Riding Pony - Jacky! (WIP)   Sat Jan 04, 2014 6:23 pm

Hi STS'ers!  Very Happy 

Yesterday, I had that strange artistic feeling.. I just HAD to finish Jacky's custom and I was so excited about it! I started with it like a year ago.. But it didn't go very well. So I painted it all white again... But I did a bad job and the paint was very thick. So I had to remove all the paint again before I could even start. It was a very thick layer! I did 2 or 3 layers of white paint, and under that was also a grey spray as base color. I'm not going to do the spray anymore and I'm planning to just start of with thin layers of white paint. :)

Since the Schleich riding pony is originally a mare and Jacky a gelding, I had to do a gender change :PThat meant that I had to sculpt. So I asked my mom to get some clay and the right pastels. I was very happy when she came directly home with them! (Thanks again mom  I love you She really supports my creative side, since she used to be just like me when she was younger)

(Here's the stuff I got with my victim  Twisted Evil Before I removed most of the paint )

Anyways.. I'm just finished with sculpting. It's my first time, so it was still pretty weird. But it went better then expected! I did a genderchange, but I also made the belly a bit thicker, since Jacky is a good-filled boy!  Laughing

This is the result!

Jacky has his basecoat now! I painted a few layers, but he still needs a final layer of white paint to get him all white and clean :) I'm going to have a busy day tomorrow, but I hope I find time so I can atleast draw his markings with a pencil on him :)

It's going great so far Kaat! I really like how you changed the shape of Schleich to make it more round, like your pony! I'm sure it's going to be beautiful portrait of your Jacky cheers

Are you done yet?




Just kidding!  Razz 
Take your time. You did a great job on the sculpting already.
I'm sure you are going to turn this horse in a fantastic looking Jacky.

Thank you so much for the great comments!  cheers 

I didn't want to make him to chunky, because that wouldn't do him honor. I wanted to make him in his good young years, in good shape. I didn't have enough time to work on him today. I was riding REAL horses all day long! (Like really.. 4 horses in one day! I've never done that before Razz) So yeah.. He's still standing there in his white coat. I think I still need to do atleast 1 coat of white, so I can start with the markings tomorrow or so.
