Happy New Year! New Year, New Customs

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas, and that an even better New Year is on the way. The past couple of months have been absolutely ludicrous for me, however I am hoping to hear back about my job soon and then I will be able to move forward with my current situation.

I was lucky enough to get what I have wanted for the past few months for Christmas! I was given an airbrush extractor booth. I plan on one day moving my studio indoors when I finally get a new place of my own, where this booth will be perfect for what I need. I was also gifted this Totilas body, where his mane was resculpted I believe by Elizabeth Bull. I can't wait to paint him!



I have newly finished these Little Bit scale customs. The first one is a commission, who I have just sent these photos to the new owner. I hope she likes him!




I enjoyed painting him, especially the unique freeze mark that this horse is based on. I know that he will be cherished in his future home.

The others I have finished are all Schleich models, the first one being a Quarter Horse that I painted to a simple chestnut in colour. Sometimes less is more, and I didn't think that this model needed any extra markings to make him stand out. 



The next one could be seen as a foal to this Quarter Horse, although he is a gelding... I wanted to do some different markings on the foal, and I thought an overo pattern would suit him pretty well. 



The last one I have to show you in this blog post is the rearing mustang I painted to a dark bay tobiano. He has a couple of areas on him that have some hair detailing but only in a couple of patches.




I have more in progress, including prepping a bunch of horses, one of which is a commission, but I am also in the middle of painting these two. The cob at the back I am particularly proud of, as he is being painted entirely with paintbrushed acrylics and not with my airbrush at all. I can't wait until he is done. I was meant to paint him as a sales piece however this might not be for sale after all... Sorry!



I also wanted to share a new sculpture that I had been working on last month, known as Bernard. I finished him over a week or so, and I am so proud of him as I think he is my best sculpture to date. I have purchased all the moulding materials, so this coming weekend I will get making some copies of him and will sell him for as cheap as I can. I plan on doing a couple of giveaways as well so stay tuned!


Thank you for letting me share. I cannot wait to post more!
