    All the best.....Roy.

    Hi Conny
    Beautiful Painting
    Can't add any more to what Roy said

    As painter struggling with contrast learnt a lot
    just by looking at your work

    Conny, simply unbelievable. Of all the things you have done on this flat, I like the horse the best. It really sets the figure off well. Not that the rest is lacking in any way shape or form. Very well done indeed!

    great painting job on the rider - this Prussian hussar 18th century?
    But the horse has serious anatomical flaws that in my opinion dimmnish this piece overal excellence. It could be the sculptor ignorance of horse anatomy and so then unless you know how to sculpt/convert you might be at disadvantage :(
    Namely, you could check horse anatomy of the legs (hindlegs - the hocks as portrayed you made this horse a cripple, stiffle and gaskinhave gentle slopes and curves but nothing sharp to them), and a little of the head (the maseteric ridge +tubercle [those bony protrusions of the upper jaw] just below the eye that is always prominent and any straps would go a little below it not on it, the mouth ends gently and never sharply as those are lips, and this horse eye is too small unless one has preference for the so called pigseye - the English expression for this small eye).
    the legs - especially the hind legs - hocks are not built the way you painted, also the same problem is in the horse's wrist or foreleg 'knee.'
    see pages (in my opinion the best are the modelhorse sculptors pages and the Russian mniaturist forum chen-la.com )
    http://www.rosehorse.com/ great sculptor
    http://www.equinesculpture.net/ this one is quite amazing
    http://www.chinookstudios.com/gallery/bay/bay.html also amazing info for all interested :)

    especially this link to Russian miniature forum www.chen-la.com, where you can find some of Mr.Zlobov info on sculpting horses: http://www.chen-la.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=660

    some amazing head info

    hope it helps to clarify

    Sorry guys, deleted all my cookies last night, and wasn't registered for my message. Since it has some controversy associated with it, I wanted to be sure and claim it! That's my rant above! :lol:

    Hello Dariusz,
    at first thanks for your nice words, but you comment about the horse is for me too critical. :angry:

    Please you look at the picture, this picture was for me the inspiration to create this flat.


    I do not think so largely am the differences, if you considers that the light on the picture come from the right side and by my painting the light come from the left side.

    Another problem is you paint the drawing for the engraver but you never get back what you have painted. The engraver have a own imagine of a horse or with another words this is to be engraved faster.

    @ All the another guys: Thanks a lot for your nice comments ;)

    Dariusz, What does this have to do with the painting of the flat? There are places to critique or review a piece, scratchbuilt or stock on this site. I just do not think it fits well here.~Gary

    P.S. I do like the links.
  15. Blind Pew A Fixture

    Regardless of anything, let's ace. Konrad's work is beautiful to look at and serves as an excellent exampe of what can be done with flats, very well done mate!
  16. garyjd Well-Known Member

    Konrad, very nice. You have really taken advantage of the engraving to give it that 3D look.~Gary

    Mr. Konrad,

    I for one do not see anything wrong with the flat but I am no expert. What I do see is a beautiful paint job and I would love to come close to this one day in my life!! I really look forward to seeing more of your work here on PF.

    All the best,

    Konrad...I love the colors of the horse. Hope you don't mind but I down loaded the photo to use as a reference for a mounted piece I had on hold till I could find the right horse colors...thanks to you i have found it,

    After reading dario966's posting I sat back and thought about the horses I have owned and spent so much time around years ago and for the life of me.......do not see anything wrong with Konrad's horse he sculpted. Much too critical dario966.

    Now I see Konrad's reference painting that the flat was sculpted from and I see an almost perfect flat...from the painting....which I would rather have (correct or not) than anything that would make it different from the original painting.

    I hope Konrad will help the members who may wish to explore the realm of flats more. Perhaps Konrad can include his website in his planet signiture so we can contact him for placing a possible order with him.

    well, to start with my answer - I have not criticized this painting job at all.
    I have just pointed to an apparent error in this flat's horse anatomy.
    I too happen to know a bit about horse anatomy, conformation and movement (via college courses on equine anatomy and physiology, horse ownership and artistics endevours in the equine subject). I have not written my post to brag about quallifiactions in the equine anatomy and sculpture but to point to an important flaw the sculpture itself , yet instead of addressing the issue ( to his credit Konrad presented the inspirational litorghraph that unfortunately to him shows exactly where the error has occured with the flat's horse ) now this issue is being treated emotionally and not substantively.
    Well , please review these images, compare with this flat's horse and draw your own conclusions
