  1. Adventures in manes and tails

    Okay.....so manes and tails really needs a certain type of tool. One I do not possess right now at this instant. So what I ended up with is a mane that looks raggedy and the tail isn't too bad, but not what you'd find on a nice resin. I will probably have to wait and try to make a waste mold and then attack the hair. Here's my attempt so far. lol

  3. Musculature on the TB

    Okay so it's hard to find a nice book to reference what muscles attach where on the bones. It kinda ends up as a jumble of overlapping stringy pieces of meat on a horse shaped structure. Kinda like untangling a necklace. Well, here's how far I got:

    The neck is mostly done. I lengthened the 'head' and blocked out the cheeks.
    I keep moving and shaving off the belly and end up with a shifted ...

    Here she is so far.
    I know the hardest part will be when to stop with the details.
    I should be able to be done with the blocking out of the body tomorrow...if I still feel inspired.
    I'm most worried about the head. I know she'll end up with hammer head or something.

  5. To Race Horse or Not to Race Horse

    Okay, I'm trying here to make a race horse. Here's the armature.

    He...er...she(?!?) is to be about 3 1/2 inches tall. I never actually did a standing horse first and am freaked out about the conformation. I can always hack it apart and redo it when I'm done, but I'm afraid I'll be too lazy. Plus it's expensive to make a resin if noone likes it.
    So gameplan right now it to sculpt...sculpt...sculpt ...
