I’ve found it endlessly fascinating that I very rarely do work on Classic or larger scale models, but I have zero qualms about taking custom commissions at those scales. For some reason the amount of work seems so much larger when I’m not doing it for someone else! 😉
This little gal was a lot of fun to paint, but a real pain to photograph. She’s a red chestnut, but there’s a smidge less red and and so much more shading in her coat that just didn’t come out in the photos. Thankfully the person who ordered her was willing to take my word for that and left my a lovely review.
As has been the habit, she has a Facebook Gallery that documents the various steps from original model to the lovely lady you see to the left. Having those galleries has done wonders for my confidence level around the ‘ugly’ stage of each model. All I have to do is look back and see that no really, the last horse also looked this bad at the same point… and off I go! 🙂
