(I can’t believe I didn’t notice this didn’t post when it was scheduled back in Feb! *sighs* This year is really getting away from me… Anywho.)

This handsome fella is my first official donation horse of 2013! 😀

He was painted as a donation to Pimped Rides Live held in Knoxville, TN on 2/23/2013. The donation request was completely open ended, so I basically just grabbed some paint and let my imagination fly!

The FolkArt paint turned out to be very translucent so I put an insane number of layers onto this guy. The colors blended together almost seamlessly, but built up depressingly slowly. Still the final effect was stunning– he really looks better in person, but I tend to say that about any horse with purple in it. *glares at camera*

I didn’t do any modifications to the mold beyond the normal seam and logo removal. I wish I had a few more of this mold to play around with, it’s a lot of fun to paint! 😀
