Horse: new position for Sirokko
« on: January 31, 2015, 05:18:49 PM »
At the Ransart expo, I found on the stand of "Les Carnutes" a new horse head for their "naked horse". I bought one; showed it to my friend that said me it's a typical position of Sirokko.

OK, clear enough for me: back to horse painting!
The new horse head fit relatively well but miliput will be needed. And I had to accomplish a bad work: castration... With a cutter...  :-help

Miliput today.

Last photo is just for fun: when placing the figure in the working box, I really saw the actual horse in his actual box...  :))

Sanding was long to do... During the stage, the horse falled out of my hand at a high of perheaps 10 centiemeters of the table: one ear broken...  :-wall
I used miliput to correct the problem and I'm happy with the result I must say!
The horse is placed on the base used for horses painting stage  :-green

...And I've also recuperated the original head of the figure: I will use it to represent another horse...

Thank you!
Was too tired to airbrush the primer today, unfortunately...

As it was expected, first primer reveals some defaults that have to be corrected... Will do that during the coming week-end.

Whoever is the sculptor of the original certainly renders the muscle structure beautifully!

I fully agree with you, Scott: the figure is realistic!

OK, I've sanded the putty that was added. Problem was due to bubbles into the resin: when sanding first time, some bubbles that were near the "surface" appeared and neede for putty again...

It look like you work faster then on previous projects, am I right?
