PostSubject: Abby's Customs! - Small Update 1st October p3   Fri Oct 10, 2014 3:13 am

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

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

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   Fri Oct 17, 2014 11:48 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.]

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

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

The new bay looks very nice. I think the palomino is such a nice model and you just gave him a new life 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

Today I received some pastels and fixative for my birthday!

My Andalusian foal was selected to be the first victim as he had lots of scuffs Twisted Evil
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

It took me quite awhile to build up the first layer of colour- I think the grey I was using at the beginning was to light
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Though in the next few steps, he ended up being a little too dark but hopefully I will learn how to refine this method more in the future-especially as this was my first pastel custom
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

I didn't like him very much at all at first, however the unique coat colouring is rather charming (though I really need to work on painting eyes...he was terrifying for a long while Laughing )
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

This is him just before his last coat of sealer and with his little acrylic hooves
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Overall I think this little project was a success considering that I had almost no idea what I was even aiming to do for a long while and it only took me a few hours, though I would love feedback and tips to help improve Very Happy

Have a happy new year sunny

You were good starting out with light grey pastels Wink You want to slowly build up layers, adding a small amount of darker pigment for each layer. If you add too much dark too fast, the finish starts to get grainy. Very Happy It's not uncommon to use 50+ layers on just one model.

I think he's very good for your first one! A few suggestions I would make are watch the hoof color - since the legs are all white (except for the front left, that one should be dark), the hooves should be a light shell color. I was planning on doing a tutorial for eyes, I keep forgetting to since I love panting eyes and just go through it Laughing It looks like the Schleich stamp is still on his belly? Perhaps your next one you might want to remove the stamp and do some prepping, it really makes the model look so much better. flower

I probably made it sound like he's not good, but really, you did an awesome job! Smile

I agree with LeeAnn. Thats a very good for your first pastel repaint. I think this unique color suits quite well for her :) will we see the mare tomorrow? I saw she was in the backround there Very Happy
When you paint eyes use the most small brush you have or get a couple of those. That makes it so much easier Wink overall your foal is adorable! I got bitten by a repainter bug again too xD

Thank you for the feedback and advice LeeAnn and Jonas Very Happy

I was originally going to take off the schleich markings, but I forgot until I started pastelling and was too lazy to start over Embarassed
And as for the hoof colour.. I was aware that they should be shell coloured but I decided to ignore that fact and paint what I thought would look best (especially as she was pretty much grey scale-black hooves made more sense to me) Also, I was simply too lazy to get all of my paints back out and try to mix a suitable colour Laughing
I'm sure myself and many others would certainly benefit if you made an eye painting tutorial Very Happy
Thank you for the tip on the layering too, I was actually trying to figure out why the finish was grainy in some areas! sunny

Jonas, you have a very good eye there! I was originally going to paint her as a buckskin or palomino but I might start over and pastel her too..hmm so many decisions bounce

Just a short update today:
On the weekend I customised a blank stablemate using my grey scale pastels Very Happy I'm definitely getting the hang of them now-just a little more practise needed cheers

Unfortunately I've had lots of school work and one of my dogs was hit by a car so I haven't been able to update this thread until now, though the dog had no serious injuries- the vet was so confused! I guess he's magical  scratch

These photos were taken in such horrible lighting, so you'll just have to imagine that the colours are beautiful Laughing It generally gets dark by the time I'm home from school so it would be a while if I waited for sunshine! bounce
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

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

I ordered several packs of unpainted stablemates from UH (I'm addicted!) so I would imagine that many future updates will be about them Very Happy  
Thank you for viewing and have a nice day sunny

That's a really nice color, Abby! I think you're better with acrylics already now! Shocked Love his light hoofs I love you
I'm glad that your dog is ok! Shocked And hey - I understand what you mean about the darkness that comes so early. You know Finland's winter Mad Very Happy

He's very pretty in grey! Very Happy

I just wanted to note - you don't have to buy unpainted models to customize them. You can just spray primer right over OF models and you're good to go. Wink

Thank you for he information LeeAnn, they were actually on sale three or four for £5 which was an incredible deal considering they sell for about £3 each...I couldn't resist Laughing

For about three weeks I have been using my new earth-toned pastels to customise a Breyer stablemate, he is not finished yet as it has taken me a while because of school commitments etc, but here are the results thus far! Smile

His first few layers were a subtle 'lemon yellow'

Before long, he started to turn to a dark brownish colour

Then today I started adding dark-points on his legs

I really like how he has turned out so far and I hope I'll be able to finish him soon sunny

I was also inspired to start working on my Breyer Morgan foal-I think I will make her into a buckskin, though I'm still unsure.

I'm finally back from Iceland (it was a fantastic trip!) and I'm embarking upon a week of exams..that means not a lot of time to paint horses Crying or Very sad
Yet I found some time to paint in between revision cheers

First up is this stablemate which is painted in acrylics

He was my first attempt of painting more detailed eyes

Very Happy That's the thing Iceland is famous about Very Happy
Oh yes it would be awesome to see photos! And of course it's always exciting to see what you've been doing for your customs victims Razz
Btw, have you been able to get your paints and brushes on those horses I sent you? ; D

It's funny you ask Jonas, I prepped the hanoverian mare you sent me a little while ago but never got round to actually started customising her!

Here she is after a few layers of grey pastels:

I hope I'll be able to finish her sometime soon Very Happy

I was also finally able to come close to finishing this little guy
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

He only needs his eyes to be painted then he's finished! I really like how he came out cheers
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

And since i'm currently on a two week Easter break from school, I thought I would give myself a break from revision and do some more customising cheers cheers
This classic scaled foal has become a little experiment of mine and I really like how she has come out so far Very Happy
