PostSubject: Vivien the Dark's animals   Thu Sep 29, 2011 2:28 pm

Many of you have already seen the pics of a capybara figurine, made by the Russian artist Vivien the Dark, that I've posted here some time ago.
Unfortunately she isn't that good in English, so cannot write on this forum herself, but with her permission I would like to share with you some more photos of her artwork- both customs and handmade figurines.

Me too cheers It is gorgeous Shocked

I wonder if she ever considered making a saluki Rolling Eyes Very Happy


She is a fantastic artist ! Her repaints are stunning !
So much attenntion to detail, she really knows how a horse looks Very Happy

The original Isadora Cruse rearing horse is SO beautyful.
It must be neccesary to take an awfully deep breath to start repainting so gorgeous a model, but she succeeded making yet another great horse.

Thankyou very, very much to you and to Vivien flower sunny cheers

Thanks for sharing great Vivien's works with us! flower
Tell Vivien that in this forum there are a lot of people that is not able to have a nice conversation in English!
Only some examples, me, Roger, Crocobert and another that uses a crocodile in his avatar that I cannot remember the name. scratch
What is important is not the language but her talent. She is very welcome! :)

Laughing Laughing Laughing
I think that you and Roger and Crocobert and the mysterious one with the avatar all peek bautyfurl Englaiszh cheers

It is a shame that google-translate is not too precise. I will never forget when I transleted from German about a guy who did not have enough to feed his family, and GT translated, that he could not EAT his family affraid

Also it takes a lot of the fun out of it to have to go through Translate.

But I think we are all just happy to understand what people mean in the most positive way, - and a picture says more than 1000 words Wink

To all
Thank you very much, I will pass Vivian your warm words.
Unfortunately now she's able only to read this forum, but I hope she'd join us one day:)
She gave her permission to place some more pics of her artwork here, so very soon I'll share more photos with you;))

Absolutely gorgeous! Dark bay and seal brown are among my favorite horse colors, I don't think there exists one model it doesn't look good on... and WG looks her best in plain colors, without a lot of dapples or spots that distract from the beauty of the sculpture itself. Like her flippy tail too! Very Happy
Most of all, though, I admire the lovely smooth finish. Does she airbrush or pastel? (Please don't tell me that's brushpainted, or I'll implode from jealousy!)

Thank you) I also like plain and dark colors, though dark/light grey with dapples might have been a good variation for her as well.
And yes, I'm also not a fan of dozens of dapples in dark colors (only in grey), i don't think it can be seen that often in real life, that's why I wanted her to be of a plain color)

As far as I know, Vivien doesn't use airbrush in her work.
I think it's both acrylics and pastel /charcoal. I'll ask her about the details)

The woman is a real artist, that is no question at all! queen
And i guess, the Breyers are the non plus ultra for horse collectors.
They do look very nice indeed, but the shinyness and the muscles to much shown do not appear to me at all.
But those other smaller animals are funny to see, really funny! :)

Well, I'm happy because of the fact I can hold her in my hands every time I want, not only just have a look at the photos and sigh))
Anyway, now I have to find a stallion for her) The Stone one is too stlll for her.

I thought golden eyes were a good idea)

Some Breyers have very nice molds, but can be customized in details:)
