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

Beautiful model! And it's especially impressive for being your first one. Very nice job!
(I know it's not quite on topic, I'm also really impressed with the sketches you did as preparation.)

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

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

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

Thank you a lot, you of any I suspect knows of these beautiful breeds  cheers  and I actually thought that Tinkers and Gypsy Vanners were the exact same thing, but now I know they're not tongue And the Irish Cob, I didn't know  bounce Better do my reasearch before sculpting  Very Happy 
Thank you for the link, I see I can turn it into English  Very Happy

Well, I think they are all the same, it is only in Netherlands studbook that they are grouped based mostly in their size. It happens in several breeds, horses are grouped according with some characteristics although they are all the same breed. Also, we know that there are subtle differences between different studbooks.

Carola, I am glad you're thinking in it. flower Wink
