I had completed him a couple of days ago, but I was working all day yesterday and wanted to seal him one extra time before glossing, so I did that this morning. It was great fun adding all of the different depths of dapples onto him.
He will be for sale, eventually, I just need some serious help trying to find a pure or part bred mix that has European descent for the live show! I hope I am successful. Any help from you lot is hugely appreciated as well.
I always thought this model had a long neck for his body, yet overall this sculpture is pulled together quite nicely. You can see him in a Western tackset helping his rider herd cattle across the plains. What I also like is the fact that he is a 'common' colour and he hasn't been enhanced in an unrealistic way in order to make him stand out and more appealing, instead he just has a natural dazzling presence.
I also have another favour to ask. The Copperfox Connemara Custom that I completed a few days ago, is currently entered into the Copperfox Custom Competition on Facebook. If you would be so kind as to like, comment and share all you can out of this photo, it would mean so much!
I have other models in the wings of my studio, as well, I can't wait to get out into the studio again today. I do need to rest though, after a particularly long day yesterday!
