PostSubject: Horse finished - page 3    Fri Dec 26, 2014 4:01 am

santa Merry Christmas!

It's been such a busy past 6 weeks there's been no time for sculpting, but finally a chance to get back to what I love. I've nervously started my first horse sculpture - it's 1:15 scale using the poseable 'bones' method that I employed in my Gorilla tutorial. I find this really helps me with proportion. 'Bones' will get a new name soon but for now she's ready to get into her gallop pose!

While I was out giving my beloved little, shaggy horses their breakfast, I suddenly remembered a horse I had here for a summer, - it was a Shagya-Arabian youngster, and even if young, she did look a lot like this beautyful model Idea

Very nice looking sculpture and I like how you began with skeleton Very Happy Very interesting. cheers
At first when I saw the photo of the real horse I though it may be Arabian but with a big amount of muscles and maybe looking too big for a classical Arabian. And then Susanne said Shagya Arabian and this fit very well to this picture I think Very Happy sunny

Thankyou - I'll take your advice and call it a Shagya Smile Now to try to capture all that beautiful muscle movement... I think this is going to be a long project!

Oh stunning! Only thing I would mention is watch that head - horses as Arab blood have dishy heads, your skull looks a little roman nosed. Wink Either way it looks fantastic already!

Good point Very Happy

Not relevant, but I just HAVE to mention Embarassed  that the Nordic thorughbred : Icelandic horse , must not have Roman nose either, - and they must not lift their tail when running Very Happy

Yes, I'll need to modify the skull a little. It was modelled from a horse skeleton graphic that in hindsight was clearly not Arabian!

The skeleton is made of super sculpey and the body is modelled from super sculpey firm.

Here's another update with the musculature coming along now. Sorry it's a bit blurry..

Looking good so far, I really like the musculature. Your 'bones' technique looks like a good one; do you mind if I use it in the future?
