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:

Oops! I haven't updated this since April Laughing Embarassed

I haven't been doing much customising due to my exams (results come out next week, I'm very nervous!) and life in general, in fact I'm going on holiday tomorrow but I thought I would squeeze in a little update Very Happy

The Breyer Shetland pony now has eyes (excuse the dust Embarassed )

I believe this was my first attempt at 'realistic' eyes (thank you LeeAnn for the tutorial!)

The Hanoverian Mare from Jonas is slowly gaining layers of pastel

I've decided to re-customise this Schleich horse as I did not like how she was turning out, she's only had one layer of primer thus far though

This is how she looked before I gave up on her and attacked her with gesso  Laughing

This stallion (which I believe came from Jonas) has just started his journey of customisation

Last but certainly not least, I have a very strange looking AAA horse Laughing

He will be my first wild animal custom cheers

I really hope I will update this sooner rather than later as I have greatly missed this forum of wonderful people, bye-bye for now Very Happy

Exciting! Like the color you got for the Andalusian! Also those ponys from me are looking well :)

Oh it's been a very long time! Yesterday I gave myself a whole day to do some customising - it was great fun Very Happy

First up was the Andalusian mare who seems to have never ending layers of pastels! I was hoping to finish her but I ran out of fixative and my hand started to ache so she has quite a few layers to go still! Laughing  Laughing
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

I then moved onto the bear which I had already primed. I started with some varying shades of acrylic paints then did a few layers of pastels (again I ran out of fixative Laughing ). This model also still has quite a bit of work to go, including fur details, face, mouth and feet shading etc. And excuse the bad photo - the lighting does no justice for his shading thus far! Laughing
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Then I moved onto one of the Andalusian foals which I own, the original paintwork was very scratched and so I saw I had no other choice but to make it another victim of customisation! Twisted Evil  Likewise lots of work needs to be done still though I really like how the base colours look so far!
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]


Lastly is my favourite custom of the day, this Percheron is quite close to completion, just a few more darker layers and then eyes, hooves and mail/tail to be done! In hindsight I would've put a white sheet down behind him so you could see the shades of grey more easily  Razz

I really wish I could've updated this thread earlier but I have been very busy with school, travelling and family life! study Though I must say I look forward to coming back to this website and I miss it dearly when I'm very busy! Crying or Very sad

As always, thank you for looking and any tips or improvements are welcome Very Happy

It is looking good so far.
Love the percheron :)
He is nicely greyed Very Happy
I really think you should make the mare and foal a bit darker on the legs maybe?
Ore will they have white socks?
Most horses have darker legs so if these horses have licht legs
it maybe will look funny at the end? I can be wrong afcorse :)

For the rest of this saying; keep up the good work :)

Yes I was planning on making the legs darker in the next few layers as I too thought they looked out of place Very Happy Thank you! cheers

They look very good! I wish I could paint... I just realized I ordered two of the same horse, how cool would it be if I could just give one of them a diffeent color!

Are the Andalusian mare and foal going to get one of these rare pearl colours? (like horses from the Yeguada Paco Marti [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] )

Thank you for your comments everybody Very Happy I've done a couple more layers of pastel but haven't had the chance to take any more pictures yet.Razz

And I have never seen those pearl colours Anna! They are very beautiful - the colour reminds me of the Akhal Teke breed Very Happy

Here are some minor updates on some of the CM's mentioned above.

The Hanoverian Mare got more shading (which doesn't show too well) and glossed eyes and hooves.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Then here is the Percheron Stallion, he is much darker in real life and also has shading. I quite like how even his colour turned out - though I might darken his mane and tail as I think it needs to look a little more dirty. But overall I think I am improving quite a lot and cannot wait to finish the others Very Happy

I have also ordered some more pastels from my favourite brand so hopefully I will get chance to use them soon (and I'll try not to make another grey horse Laughing )
