    nice looking horses.
    I think the leopard skin needs more work into the middle of the burnt umber.
    Look at this: abstract-skin_00292572.jpg

    Sorry if I shout for any reason.......for instance that it is a not completed painted horse.

    I wish I could paint horse's, mine end up looking like donkeys.
    Superb WIP will follow to see the result.
    Best regards

    Bob it is not hard to paint horses, ok some of the greys can be difficult , but a dark bay is a great place to start .
    All you need is , burnt umber , mars black and a tad Tit white for the muzzle , in this one horse you can have dark points IE legs main and tail or you can go for light points , add a blaze , white fetlocks , many combinations .

    My method is in the undercoat shining through to keep things subtle .
    If there was enough interest I would do an SBS on a couple of different colours

    I did one horse years ago, DF Grieves 16th lancer, didn't finish it, then painted his Camel corp figure both in 65mm. The camel looked great.
    I have read all sorts on painting horse. when I get to the muzzle and the eyes, it goes to cock.
    (trouble is the MM mounted figures are a tad expensive) I like them, as no other gets so near to the quality.
    One day........
    Thanks Ron

    I will do an SBS Tommi as I have a couple of spare horses .
    I will be sending for either the line lancer trooper or officer MM tomorrow and it should get here by Monday .
    By the time I clean and prep should start the SBS towards the end of the week.
    Will also cover some of the things best done pre painting ie Bits and reins .
