Christmas Pony

Christmas Pony - Angle

Christmas Pony

Once upon a December there was someone who said ‘a pony’ when her cousin asked what she wanted for Christmas… and so she got one!

To be fair, I am pretty sure she was kidding and/or wasn’t expecting a little bundle of metallic-ly awesome appaloosa, but this is why when you should be careful what you ask for when your cousin works with someone who commits art. 😉 Mwahahahaha!

(Also noted: I always ask for a pony whenever anyone asks me if I want something.)

This little gal has a very sparse appaloosa blanket, two front socks, and a small star (moon?), but she’s not short on shine. She’s got a high gloss finish and as you can see from the no-flash/with-flash front photo below she ranges from a richer copper to a golden hue depending on the light.

She was a lot of fun to paint– I haven’t done a speed run in quite a while and it was amusing to see just how long it really takes me to take a model from start to finish! 🙂

Medium: Liquitex Artist’s Color Acrylics (Gesso, Iridescent Rich Bronze), FolkArt Acrylics (666 Antique Copper, 577 Sahara Gold, 944 Nutmeg), Apple Barrel Acrylics (20504 Black), Ceramcoat (02604 Metallic 14k Gold)

I had good intentions with this year’s donation to the Big Orange Bash, but life threw me a few curve balls and I got him finished up seriously late. (The show date was June 15!) Thankfully the showholder is a) very forgiving and b) can still use him, so he’ll be out in the mail in the near future.

I think I’ll start next year’s donation tomorrow… Continue reading
