Earth: Custom Order

Custom Micro Order

Earth: Custom Micro Order

Earth is a custom order done in the same blue-bay tobiano as Partly Cloudy. She has show-blacked hooves, a thin blaze, solid black eyes and a glossy finish.

She’s only the second time I’ve painted a Breyer Mini Whinnies High Stepping Saddlebred Mare, it’s a mold I really like, but just haven’t has a chance put under a paintbrush. It also means Earth’s only an inch tall and the photos below are several times life-sized!

The problem I run into whenever I paint these little guys is that the camera captures defects I can’t always fix– someday I’ll manage to pull off customs just the way they look in my head, but alas for now I’m still learning! :)

This little gal sat on the workbench for a while after she was done because I couldn’t think of a good name… thank goodness for the awesomeness that is my Facebook group! :D (The runner-up name, Shamrockstar, was snagged by another horse who hasn’t been finished yet). Continue reading

Color: Gold and Copper Tobiano
Gallery: Tobiano
Medium: Gesso, Liquitex Acrylics (Mars Black, Burnt Sienna, Bright Gold, Metallic Bright Bronze)
Status: Painted 2012 and For Sale

I totally meant to paint this pony a serious color, something realistic and dashing like a nice flaxen chestnut with a tiny touch of chrome… and then I got sidetracked by pictures of Bling and the urge to dunk her in metallics was too powerful to resist.

My fantasy Muses come heavily armed. *solemn nod* Continue reading

Status: Painted 200? and Sold 200?

I rarely do holiday themed horses, since by the time I finish them the holiday is over, so this little guy is a rare exception to the norm. I was tempted to give him Halloween themed cat tracks, but the basic orange and black looked too nice to fiddle with. Continue reading

This little guy was an unnamed Add-a-Foal/Apology Foal and I have absolutely no information on him beyond these photos… which is why he’s named Weinig Groen Paard (which via Babelfish means ‘Little Green Horse’ in Dutch). Hey, when all else fails, go for the pun! *grin* Continue reading
