Big Orange Bash Donation Magnets

Big Orange Bash Donation Magnets

Normally I donate custom model horses to model horse live shows, but this time around I figured a small herd of Fat Pony magnets might be more fun! 🙂

I’ve made donations for Big Orange Bash (Knoxville, TN) before and I’m more than happy to keep them hock deep in magnets or models. The show is a fund raiser for the Large Animal Clinic at the University of Tennessee’s College of Veterinary Medicine and if my silly little horses can help, how can I pass that up?

I went for a full fantasy herd this time around, in homage to my past donations, and tried to get as much variation as I could into the ranks. Part of this was because I was going to use the photos in the Etsy store, so two birds (err, 11 fat ponies) with one stone!

Evangelina

This little gal has been a looooong time in the making!

Evangelina was a custom order that I started back in March but one thing led to another and I didn’t get her finished until September. From her teeny tiny spots to her striped hooves, this little gal took a lot of cross-eyed nights to pull off. (I really need to get a magnifying glass headset).

She was the first realistic leopard appaloosa that I’ve done in a long time and it was fun running around Google digging up good reference photos. I know it makes me a dinosaur, but I remember what it was like pre-Google and it’s such a happy feeling to have things right at my fingertips!

This guy is… well, he’s sort of a leopard appaloosa, but you’d have to look at one a bit sideways. He’s got a little bit of white blanket scattered about, a whole lot of yellow spots, and a few gold highlights that really don’t show up well in the photos. Continue reading

Mold: Warmblood (G2)
Color: Turquoise Leopard Appaloosa
Gallery: Fantasy Appaloosa
Medium: Acrylics
Status: Painted in 2004 and Sold Dec 2004

His name is German for ‘December Stone’ because I was completely out of ideas on what to call a turquoise horse. Babelfish is a very addicting crutch… you can make just about anything sound nifty by turning it into German (or Portuguese!) Continue reading
