PostSubject: Abby's Customs! - Small Update 1st October p3   Fri Oct 10, 2014 4:13 pm

In the past few weeks, I have decided to try and customise some of my schleich horses, here are the results and the process in picture form:

First is the TWH stallion, I did his first coat of white paint a week or so ago

Then I did a second white coating of paint.

I thought a dark colour would be best for my first complete custom (though he looked like he belonged on top of a trophy! Laughing )
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Then another coat of black

I then used a mixture of black and brown to create this and the next several layers of paint

I also gave him a sock Laughing

You can almost see his blaze on his face in this photo

Then after painting his hooves, he was free to roam around cheers

And what a handsome boy he is!

As always, thank you for reading and I hope to be updating this thread soon Very Happy

After the successful customisation of the TWH, I decided to do it again, this time with one of my favourite models-the Hanoverian stallion. (I already think I'm addicted! Laughing )

Here he is after the first layer of paint:
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Then of course his second and third layers:

Now the more exciting part! The first layer of colour-I believe this was several different shades of brown combined with a little black:

Another layer..
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

A darker mix of the above colours (a little more black added, I believe)
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Now some (hard to see) shading and his mane & tail
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

After some gloss, socks and hoof painting, here he is:
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

And a close up of his sweet face:

I would say this was a successful custom, let's hope there's more to come in the future Laughing

Abby I love them! Very Happy Black for the TWH is a great choice. I really like him, but would like even more without the blaze if you don't mind me saying this. Razz Great!
The hanoverian has such a nice color as well, the brown color is looking very delicious on him Very Happy

Thnak you for showing! cheers

Beautiful repaints! You chose some amazing colours and the effect is very lovely. cheers

What kind of lens or camera do you use? I see the pictures seems to be distorted but I don't know if it is untypical lens or maybe you resized them in graphic program and something unexpected happens to them? scratch

Anyway, great work on the repaints!! Very Happy Very Happy

Thank you everyone for your advice and compliments cheers
And Anna, I don't edit my photos, I think it's just me trying to workout what size is best when posting them on the forum (I'm assuming this is causing the distortion you're seeing).

Hopefully I will figure out the correct size soon and it will prevent the distortion issues in the future Very Happy

If it helps, I use GIMP for photo editing/resizing. You can enter the size for one side (typically we go with 500px on the longest side around here), hit enter, and the other side will automatically resize proportionally with the first side. No fiddling around with numbers. And then of course there is the added benefit of editing. Wink

Thank you for the advice LeeAnn! When I was experimenting earlier, I accidentally turned my TWH into a sausage! Laughing Laughing

lol! That reminds me of the Breyer mold Khemosabi, better known as "Khemosausage"

You can see why...

PostSubject: Abby's Customs! Update 18th Oct   Sat Oct 18, 2014 12:48 pm

My latest custom is the schleich Palomino Stallion (13618)

Like usual, I started with two white base coats of paint.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Then I added a layer of burnt sienna (he looks like he's smothered in ketchup  Laughing  )
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Then after another layer of burnt sienna, I used several different shades of brown mixed with a little black
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

This is him with his base colour finished
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Then I painted some detailing on his legs, muzzle and mane and tail (though it's hard too see in this picture).
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Here he is outside and almost finished (he still needs his hooves and glossing to be completed)
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

And here is his other side
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Overall, I think I am improving and have impressed myself with his shading (the pictures don't necessarily do him justice Very Happy )

Some bonus pictures I found of one of my dogs on my camera from last week Very Happy
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

As always, thank you for reading and have a wonderful day Very Happy

My favorite of all your horses is the hanoverian! I love him x3

I usually use the gloss on the eyes, nose and sometimes the hooves to make the model slightly more realistic Very Happy
