Hi all  sunny 

I've seen so many great beautiful homemade models from STS members, so I decided to try it out myself  Rolling Eyes 

Ofcourse I had to make a Draft Horse of some sort. This one I got inspiration from Ardennais Draft and Brabant Draft horses.

He is not perfect, and there are big problems with the length of legs, and the paintwork is... well - I have learned a lot for my next sculpture  Rolling Eyes 

But I thought he was ok for a first timer, so I decided to show you  Embarassed Very Happy My Little Ardennais

Making of:


He is made of Fimo Clay.


Finished:

Carola, I know well that you have talent, - but so far have only seen it "2-dimentional". Very Happy 

But this tiny horse is absolutely WONDERFUL  cheers  Applause

Carola, that's the news of the day! Very Happy
Knowing your talent and accurate aestetic sense, to start sculpting only could be a logical consequence. Very Happy
Your figure is already very good and show that you really like heavy horses. It seems you choosed the proeminent shoulders and hind quarters of a Belgian and the powerful and featered legs of an Ardennais. Very Happy A very strong neck and an Italian draft head profile, maybe! Wink
The pose is quite hard for someone that is starting once it doesn't turn easy to check the proportions of body/legs length. The coloring shows you really wanted a draft and not a specific breed and it turned really nice. Very Happy
I think you should continue sculpting, the Britains size is a very good idea and maybe next time you can try to get a specific breed but in a simple standing pose, I think it could be a good chalenge. Why not a Dutch heavy draft??? Idea
That's exciting, just keep your good work! flower

Thank you all very much for your kind words, A-J, 4U, Andreas, Susanne, Harriet, Anna, Bacardi King, Karin, Bonobo, Florian, Roger, Saarloos, Geospiza Fortis - he'll be happy to hear them  Very Happy

Thank you, I do intend to try again  Very Happy Sculpting is fun, but also very hard work, for me at least  Razz I was thinking of a bit bigger model next time though. Maybe Schleich size. And like you say, in a less challenging pose.
I think maybe I need more practice if to make really specific breeds.

I've tried to make some human busts years ago. But they are long gone history. This is my first time trying to sculpt someting fullbody/animal.  Very Happy I have also tried sculpting a horse in Zbrush(3D program) very recently, but I dare say, that is somehow quite different, and a lot easier than realworld sculpting.

Awr, that is a very cute model! I don't know the specie though  bounce as I do not know much of horned creatures  silent You have also added great fur texture, that is very neat  Very Happy You did also good for a first timer, and indeed I see improvement a lot in your newer models, but will not make the first ones any less valuable  Very Happy

Carola,
you make sculpting look so easy.
Please stop doing that.  lol! 


What a fantasic, beautiful horse you've crafted.
For you first sculpture of a draft horse, I'm totally flabbergasted by your talent.

Looking forward to see it, Schleich size is surely also a good idea though I think it is more interesting if you try to make a specific breed instead of a kind of horse. I understand it could be much more exigent but now it is too late to stop. Very Happy
P. S. I am a proud owner of Agata's takin and it is a wonderful figure even knowing that Agata is doing better now. flower

Thank you SyLoBe, Jonas, Miguel, Ken  sunny 

Jonas, it is my first fullbody/animal sculpt  Very Happy I've tried making human busts, several years ago, so I'm not unfamiliar with the FIMO material and the concept of sculpting.

Roger, I did change my mind on the size. I stay in the little scales, for now  Very Happy 

I see, looking at Takins I really think Agata did a great job capturing the specie, really  cheers

There is not long from human to animal, I think  Rolling Eyes Ok, I once made a tiny full body Lara Croft, but it was not very nice, and is possibly ten years go  Razz

PostSubject: New little Gypsy Vanner :-D   Mon Mar 03, 2014 8:53 pm

Hi all  cheers 

I got all hooked on making my own models, so I made a new one  Very Happy

I feel like a learn a lot, especially because when sculpting a model, there is no excuses, compared to when drawing 2D.
In 2D you can just skip things, or turn them your favorite angle and such - but with 3D - EVERYTHING must be considered.. but also, some things come as gifts... but still.. hard work, (to me that is  silent )!
I have the greatest respect for sculptors (even the makers of the mediocre 2014 Schleich horses - they are still, IMHO talented sculptors in many ways).

Well, on to my second FIMO Clay horse: Little Gypsy Vanner
I think she is better than my first. But still I have things to try - like hooves ...  tongue (Thank you for feathered drafters!)
AND - I don't mind reasonable critique. Such can help me improve  Smile 


Making of.


Baked and ready for paint  Very Happy (I use ordinary acrylics)


I'm not happy with her front legs (seen from the front) ..
























Here with a Breyer Stablemate and the good ol' Schleich Tinker Mare  Very Happy


"You are not really a foal, are you!?"


Size  Smile

I thought I had already commented on your Tinker but... What a Face
I am really impressed that from your previous horse to this one we already see a remarkable development. cheers This figure is wonderfully done! Very Happy
I think the front legs look great, maybe you can put them less spread reducing the featering on innner legs. Though, I think you don't need to retouch it.
Like Jonas, I also want to have a horse from you. Maybe a stablemate sized Princess without braids and in a Shire body. bounce bounce Laughing

She's adorable! I really recognize Tinky in her, the face, the built  I love you You did a great job!
The proportions could be a little better. The belly and shoulder for example look a bit odd. But you're new in this, and I couldn't do it any better AT ALL! I'm really amazed how you can sculpt so nicely, even when it's only your second time doing it. So great job! The model you made looks more like an Irish Cob or Tinker than a Gypsy Vanner. (Vanners are bigger, she looks more like the 'pony-type' that they breed in Ireland atm)

The breedstandard is in Dutch.. But it explains how an Irish Cob should be perfectly, so it might be handy for in the future  Very Happy

^Fun fact, if you search Tinky in the 'online stamboek' (online studbook) you'll find her easily. She's the only one called Tinky with a 'STER' next to her name  Very Happy
