Riboy (a "naked" horse)
« on: March 24, 2013, 01:44:18 PM »
As you know, a friend of mine owns horses. I have painted for her figures of her two first ones, but the new one was to be made too of course!

As he is a young horse, I have had to wait until his colors will be fixed. It's time now. Just waiting for good weather and good light to take some photos to help to paint, but I can actually prepare the figure  ;)

Figure (bought during the Ransart expo end of january in Belgium) is from JMD Création, France. Very nice and expressive, but resin contains some bubbles on the horseback and defaults that have to be fixed with putty.

My actual work: sanding; castration (argh...); reinforcement of the parts with metal before gluing; putty; preparation of the base and two photos of the horse on the base, to let my friend to choose if she want the horse looking to the left or to the right.

Next step: sanding of putty; not before next week...

Miliput sanded. I just added Mr Surfacer 500 around the neck for little corrections.

Yes, it's my hope! When you are working for a good friend, you always try to do better than for yourself...

A first primer (white) was airbrushed, to help to reveal the remaining defaults (unsufficient sanding; holes; mold lines, etc).
Then after corrections, a second primer is airbrushed. All is OK now.
Figure is placed on a temprary base (to help to manipulate the figure); the places of the feet are marked on the definitive base.

Maskol applied to protect the surfaces that will be painted in white. Another primer (sand) will be airbrushed on the horse

Primer again; then maskol is removed. Minor corrections needed on the face...

Just to correct the white zone on the face, no other problem than that...
