PostSubject: Dark dappled grey - Safari Ltd. custom   Sat Jul 21, 2012 9:49 am

Two days ago I finished a new custom horse. This one was primed since a couple of months ago but never found time to do it. With this one I tried to do a dark grey with louding dapples, because I´m bad at painting dapples, but I´m somehow happy with the result. The problem was that I had to re-do them and had to use a lot of fixative spray, so it finished more glossy than expected. I have 2 more horses waiting for being painted as dappled greys (in different shadows), so I hope they will be a bit better.

The mold used is the Safari Ltd. 151005 Lipizzaner stallion. I removed the brand marking, and if you watch carefully, you´ll see a pair of details I changed :)

I´m very sorry the pics are so bad... I hope you will enjoy them anyway ^^

Thank you Susanne and Andreas!

Maybe you could try to say what are the 2 changes I did, appart from the paintjob (obviously)?

Very nice work cheers
Head/neck angle looks different, like it's more bended. Also, right rear leg is moved toward front, like it's preparing for rearing pose Very Happy

I haven't seen the original model in real life so it's hard to tell what You changed in shape. Anyway he looks lovely Very Happy

Thank you my friends! Very Happy

Robert, I´m soprry you´re not right! I didn´t reposition the neck, it´s on the original pose. But you´re near... One of the changes is on the neck. About the leg... yes, the other change is on it, but not exactñy what you said.

Ana, I edited the post and added 2 photos of the original figurine :)

Yeees! cheers

Subtle changes but I think they change a lot the general appearance. Longer mane gives a more beautiful neck-line, and higher front leg gives him more action; the pose of the original one is like passive action, like doing a "dead" passage or piaffe. But let me know what do you think about that, please :)
