PostSubject: CM Appaloosa stallion by Tigzzz   Thu Apr 12, 2012 8:59 pm

I'm an Appaloosa fan, so when a friend of mine offered to do some paint work on model horses for free (as a practice) I asked her to turn my Thoroughbred stallion from Breyer CM Kit into Appaloosa.

I believe it was a hard work, but after several months of painting she finally created this masterpiece.
This is how he used to look like.

And this his new appearance (by Tigzzz).
Blue roan blanket appaloosa with spots (mane and tail are made from mohair).

His coat is a silky one:)

I could have asked some simple appaloosa (on bay, for ex., or on chestnut base color, but I wanted roan! Poor Tigzzz... Rolling Eyes )

A bit shaggy here. i still cannot decide if I want him with long or middle length mane. What do you think?

The real horse, whose color's been used as an example.

Every horse in my collection has a name, esp the OOAK ones. But this one is nameless for now. hat do you think would be a suitable name for this cute fellow? bounce

Oh my goodness!!!! He is absolutely STUNNING! Wow Daria, you are lucky cheers
Such a beautiful paintjob, incredibly real, gorgeous detail.

I think the mane would look better slightly shorter, so as not to hide the beautiful paintwork.
A name how about "Caeruleus" which is blue in Latin I think.

I love you sunny WOW!!!!! I love you
That horse is ABSOLUTELY STUNNING Shocked cheers

Look at all that detail, - and SO accurate ! Fantastic !!!!!
It looks more real than the real one sunny

I think the mane and tail are PERFECT, it would be a shame to start grooming it !
One detail that is fantastic, - appaloosas have the problem that their tail isn`t very thick, - this one isthe first model I have seen where the artist sticks to reality cheers cheers cheers cheers

WOW, It is amazing, so realistic.
Please tell your friend that if she needs any more practice I could definatly help her out with some horses.
You are very lucky to have this amazing and realistic model.

Thank you all cheers I'm glad you liked him, and I will pass your kind words to the artist :)

Harriet
I like the idea about some name concerning his color, but name in Latin is too complicated for him, I'm afraid. Anyway, I'll think it over, thanks Wink

Kelsey
No, I won't dare to call him Stormy. There's only one Stormwatch on this Earth:) However, I was thinking of naming him Stormwind... As for Zeus- I have one already;)

SyLoBe
I'm going to get mini Nevada resin (and turn it in some kind of appaloosa, yessss Twisted Evil ), so I'm not sure if it's a good idea to have two horses with similar names.

Susanne
You know, I understand that his mane is too long and shaggy, but there's sth exterimily touching about it.

Thank you all:)

I also love appaloosas, esp the blanket ones, and it's great that many manufacturers (esp Peter Stone) focus on this pattern now Very Happy

... Rolling Eyes Congratulations cyhyraeth companion for your excellent work. Here the horse has been impressive. Appaloosa horses were the favorites of the Sioux Indians. And although it is looking like the Indians painted horses with symbols as painted Sioux warriors.
