    I've started with a new project. Still I don't want to tell too much about it.
    The first object is an exhausted horse.

    All I can say is WOW! You really caputred the look of a very tired and mistreated horse. Super job!! Did you sculpt the whole thing or is it a conversion?

    Anders,

    this is a sculpture from the very beginning. I shamed to say, but I never made good conversions. It's much easier for me to sculpt then to re-built or to convert

    Hi Vlad

    I think your Horse sculpture is terrific. I know what you mean about
    converting, I tried to build a horse on top of a toy soldier horse without
    success. I think starting from scratch is the best way, you can put in what you want

    Although I will use kit horses as reference.

    Paulo,
    I make this project not for comercial release, mainly for myself. I'm planning to cast it of tin at the very end, because this model made of Sculpey and this clay is very breakable.
    :lol: I agree, there are so many items where such a miserable horse may be 'at the right time, at the right place'. Maybe it will be a brilliant idea - to overload the world with swarms of suffering, thirsty and miserable animals? :lol:

    Vlad-

    Nice. Not always enough fodder in the field. Well fed horses were more the exception...

    Nice to see something different, too.

    Hi Franc!

    Ir's realy hard challenge for me - to sculpt a horse though that one is not the first one. Nevertheless I feel myself as a newbie always when I deal with animals. So I try to use all I can find as a reference: drawings, photos and of cource kit horses (I have 4 different Airfix models).
    I like to make all the figurines by myself - not to buy them. To sculpt - this is the only way to learn how to sculpt :)

    Vlad,

    That is a fantastic horse! Can you give us any clues about the final subject?

    Thank you guys for replies. I'm glad you like the horse. Now you can see a finished model.

    The final subject is going to be a scene of the first crusade warriors on their way across the steppes of Asia Minor in 1097 - a nightmare of heat, dust and thirsty.

    And the last one:

    This horse supposed to belonng to not too rich crusader, maybe to a servant of his master-knight. I equipped this beast with a saddle usual for 11 century not too expencive pattern.
    The next step I'm planning to divide the model into 4 parts: tail, saddle and two body parts and then to cast it in tin.

    Thank you Laurence!
    The show must go on. And now - dissection results as I said in previous post - four details. Dissecting is very difficult and long procedure. It took me a couple of hours to complete it. Thanks to God it passed successfully and now I can start to make a mould.
