Silverheart

Silverheart is a custom order done on a Breyer Stablemate G3 Stock Horse mare and is only the second time I’ve ever painted this mold (Schneekatze being the first). She’s a silver snowcap appaloosa with metallic black points, only a few small spots, silver and bronze striped hooves, bronze eyes, and a heart-shaped star on her forehead.

I still maintain he is awesome. *solemn nod* Continue reading
