PostSubject: Dorotea's repainted horses   Mon Jun 23, 2014 12:53 pm

Hello again,

I already posted a couple of posts in this forum some 6 months ago and now I'm here again.
I was considering starting a topic here or on a german MPV forum, but the MPV seems extremely hyperactive, I'm barely managing to follow some topics + I know horse colors terms in english anyway and don't have to suffer trying to write in german Laughing

Sooo, I was "collecting" Schleich horses for a while, and off course found some on a fleamarket which were "damaged"
(had many rubs) and I, of course, had to fix them...
Now I'm at around 30 repainted horses Laughing 

I will show them from the beginning.
I know that the first ones are "faulty", but I won't change them much, I want to know how my perception of details and importance of this and that changed in time

This was my first repaint - an unusual overo-ish mare:
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Some other followed, I especially wanted a knabstrup-friesian mix which I saw (and drooled) on the net:
(two black friesians and a quarter are not repaints)
(The foal is kind of a half-repaint, a modified original color)
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

and a blue-eyed blue roan:

Then I tried my first extreme dapple gray, I wanted "clear" dapples
The 1st batch together:

Well, meanwhile I have repainted more new than used horses, if I like the mold I can't wait too long to find it on a fleamarket + it is getting harder to find cheap Schleich on fleamarkets - people really tend to overprice their used toys, especially the ones with many rubs.

So, batch 2:
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Nr. 12 is from a picture of Johann Georg Hamilton
(not mine, not sure if I'm allowed to link this: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.])
Nr. 10 has been re-repainted meanwhile :)
Nr. 11 is a nice roan draft

Me too! I also know the names of all those different colours better in English than in my native language. Good to know I'm not the only one  Laughing 
I'm not a member of MPV but I really enjoy watching all those different custom threads. There's indeed this little problem that there are so much topics... it's hard to follow everything so I just 6 big custom threads.

Same here on your neighbour's fleemarkets  Rolling Eyes  " But they are special" is the excuse they always use...

Group 3:
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

13. another horse from the painting of Johann Georg Hamilton
(again, the image is not mine) [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

14. draft bay pinto
15. black arabian mare (she got her head a bit repainted later)
16. akhal teke - a bay with a nice metallic gold sheen

Btw. most of them have names not numbers Laughing 
I was just doing this to keep track of what I did, and now it is the simplest way of presenting them

Ahhh! A true golde Akhal teké  cheers 

And another Hamilton-horse Very Happy Isn't it marvellous that the lipizzans used to be paint ?
What a long, boring period when paints were not liked in the European countries and Russia.  Rolling Eyes

Oew number 10 had the be a diffecult one the paint! That detail is beautifully done.

O another new favorit number 11 is wonderfull  Applause  how did you get it to look like its so softed and fluffy!?

14 and 15 are nice to, the colors are bautifull for the horses you choose.

and the golden Teké... that should have been his color in the first place if you ask me!
I also had the idea to make a real gold teké. but yours is very good, i'm going to juse your idea for mine, if you don't mind Very Happy?

The Johann Georg Hamilton horses are so picture perfect, why don't you take them outside?
And i have 1 question; Why don;t you sculp them into the horses you have know only taking the color from as acsample?
i would be great to see that als barock style into schleich scale horses!
Maybe a tip? Razz if you have got so many horses to paint maybe try one to make into a real Johann Georg Hamilton horse Razz

Yes, it seems that the lipizzan breed was a colorful crowd - I suppose that is true for many of today's european breeds
I can understand that, since a horse was THE mean of transport a long time, people wanted an uniform animal,
but the color is coming back big time for many breeds Laughing

At this point I know of one blue roan lipizzaner
(image not mine: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.])
and there is definetely some kind of sabino present underneath of all that gray
+ this source says that there is no classic splash [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.],  buuut,
I have seen images of blue-eyed lipizzans, and have heard of blue eyed horses with asymmetrical white (heavier on the bottom) on the face - so I suspect there could be some kind of splash gene there among the lipizzan population, heterozygous and invisible or barely visible
waiting to get loud Laughing   
I guess that should than be very targeted color breeding (without getting into how justtified breeding for color only is...) - If one is lucky/patient enough first to find, and than manage to combine two such individuals (who should not be grays or at least be heterozygous grays)
one could maybe eventually get a loud splash lipizzan...

I'm glad you like them, 10 got a bit boosted later  Very Happy 
Snowflake (11) was first a chestnut pinto, then I added a layer of a very rare white paint.

I agree, that is why I repainted DorKush (bay bird in Turkmen)
Of course I don't mind, nobody has exclusive rights to horse colors Laughing

I have to honestly say that I don't get much satisfaction in outdoor model horse photos
(I would at least have to have a better camera than this, my "new" one died some mounths ago, and this is an ancient Olympus mju300, but it's doing its job for now)

Don't say this twice - something arrived in the mail for me today Laughing
I have been checking what is being done with apoxie clay, and am perhaps interested in doing some minimal sculpting - like manes and tales, not sure if I want to take on full body sculpts at this point - a lot of energy needs to be invested there and I just really want to paint...
+ I just don't see myself sawing off horse heads and legs Laughing

e.g. this kind of sculpting looks really appealing to me:

Next group:
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Here I am already making sure that the face and especially eyes are detailed enough.

17. wildstyle - so I know his mane is not too realistic, I've considered blurring it down a bit, but I've decided to leave it, let's just say it's some kind of extreme slivering
difficult to say what his base color is - could be some grullo (I did't bother with the back line) or a classic champagne tovero with blues eyes - probably not a combination that will come up somewhere soon Laughing 

18. strawberry roan

19. gentle dark dapple gray PRE, again with blue eyes - not too probable
she is called Lady Blue

20. Golden Eye - sabino dapple buckskin barok pinto with amber eyes
I saw a similar one on ebay (wasn't dappled though) and decided to try and make my own, I don't find sabino too interesting, but this "messy" coloring on the legs is very attractive for me

Oew that link you showed is really a beauty!
I really wanne see you do that, with your paint job it will be a fabulouse model in the end.

I understand the sculpt presure... it is a long way from sowing a horse to bits and pieces
back to a really horse again and then also make it look good ! Razz

Your new horses are great... that strawberry Very Happy *jummy jummy*
And the dapples are great i like the messyness in the horses, it makes them more realistic Very Happy

21. gray arabian
22. another gray arabian (fixed a bit later)
23. golden cremello akhal teke
24. buckskin barock pinto (the buckskin was too yellow for me here, so I fixed it later)

In the row behind:
Nr. 10 mustang roaned significantly since the last time, he also got his head and eyes redone
Nr. 15 black arabian mare also got her head redone

Palomino arabian mare was bought (the only repaint I bought so far) from this lady:
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]  
I wanted to actually see one of these apoxie customs, and I really like the horse, especially how she does faces

The golden akhal is just standing there...

Here are the fixed versions of horse 22 and 24
and two - I call them - half-repaints:
-TW mare (she is the mysteriously missing nr.6 from the 1st picture Laughing )
had some dirty scratches on her, so first I just covered them with white patches, wasn't very happy with the result,
but she is ok now when I added some additional shading
-and tinker mare - I just could not watch the paintjob on the mane anymore so I kind of "fixed" her coloring

Very nice repaints! Congratulations! cheers cheers

And I like the name you gave to your dapple grey Andalusian mare "Lady Blue", it reminds me the title of Nina Simone's song "Little Girl Blue" Smile

Your strawberry roan horse is, I think, especially beautifully painted! Very Happy Seems he's becoming popular here! cheers
