It was the owner that commissioned me to paint this model's idea to include the Diamante crystals on his costume. I absolutely adored the idea and I was so excited to put them on when I had finished with my acrylics on him. I didn't want to use them sparingly, but I also didn't want to go overboard and use them in too many places! I think I got the balance perfectly.
However, one catch about this model... You may realise that this model should have come with a set of plumes to place on his head and withers. I am a massive numpty and somehow lost them here in my studio. I thought of all sorts to get them back to her, to emailing Donna Chaney at Animal Artistry, offering to sculpt more and also placing ads on the Model Horse Sales Pages to see if anyone had any spare. But the owner had a better idea.
Why not use REAL feathers, to make them look like real plumes?
I don't know about you, but I reckon this was the greatest idea!
