Saphira's Vegas Completed:

The 1/6 Scale colt foal is now completed, and will be in MH$P and probably in Ebay Monday.


The second 1/6 Scale filly foal has just gotten her first layer of priming.  I couldn't do her hind leg all the way down because I have to hold on to something to spray her.  I ran out of primer also, so I gotta get some more.  She's now going to be buffed with an extremely fine soft steel wool. Then reprimed again.  Then it's on to painting. I really like her.  I love the sprawled out pose.  I did google the other night Custom 1/6 scale breyer foal and Camilla, and you know I only found repainted ones.  I couldn't find anything drastically resculpted. Nothing like I've done with these two.  It's weird. As long as this mold has been out and such endless possibilities of doing foals in so many poses and I couldn't find anything in google with the most basic of search terms. I was so afraid that someone else had done these poses.   I don't know.  I couldn't find anything, so I guess that's a good thing. lol

Arabian Mare And 1/6 Scale Filly:

The Arabian mare is almost there.  She's needs a little more work on the tail.  Then she's off to sanding and priming. The paint.  

And the 1/6 Scale filly is looking awesome! I did some rough sanding and then added some more touches in apoxie.  She's got a tail now. I went ahead and took the original one off and made my own.  I closed her mouth, gave her new chest muscles, I replaced her left front knee. I carved out all her hooves. Even the front left folded one.  I love how she's so sprawled out!  I love it when i get new models I've never worked with before and get fresh ideas to do them in.  I'm so late getting this 1/6 scale foal though.  They were always like $39.00 on Ebay and they haven't really come down much at all.  I was so lucky to find these two I got at Ollies for $19.99 each.  I got one and a Lonesome Glory (Zenyatta) a couple weeks back for $19.99 each.  They had like two 1/6 scale foals left I think.  I just didn't have enough money to get another one and I didn't know how well it would work, and I know Lonesome Glory is a good model to use for anything.  So i went back to Ollie's the more than two weeks after I bout the first foal hoping they had another one left because I really wanted to tackle that laying down foal I saw in a reference photo.  So I went in, and they had ONE LEFT just sitting in the front of the store.  So I grabbed it. Good thing I did. lol

Two 1/6 Scale Foals In Progress:

I don't know which one I'm most excited about.  I haven't see any other CM's of this Camilla foal done this way, so I'm hoping I've done something totally original, or at least different.  
The first one is a little colt foal and he's on his front knees.  I've got him all base coated and it's taken so many layers of white.  The white has to be so thin in order to cover smoothly.  But because it's so thin, it covers very lightly, so it's something you have to constantly build up.  I've now got to do a lot of cat tracks, roaning, and shading, and antiquing.  A lot of wash layers too.  But I like how he looks so far. His color is just a little raw right now.

He's going to have a lot more darker spots that are deeper within the fur. 

The next little 1/6 scale foal is going to be a filly foal and she's another drastic CM.  I'm so excited about her.  She's coming along really well so far.  I've done about all the sculpting I can to her right now because I can't find anywhere to hold on to her while I smooth the apoxie over her.  So once she's dried I will be back at it again tonight or maybe today adding more details. I'm in love with her sprawled out pose.  She's not going to have her tongue out like the kneeling one though.  I wanna do something a little different with this one.  I left the tongue out on the kneeling one.  This one I wanna change her up and close her mouth.  Her tail for right now was just left up and out of the way because I needed to sculpt her behind and gender, but once that's all finished and sanded smooth, then her tail will be lowered and dropped on down.  Maybe I will take it off and resculpt it but I don't know yet. I'm trying to leave as much of her original mane intact for this one.  I'm really thinking of doing her as a bright light chestnut foal. But i never know for sure til I finish her, but I'm really seeing her as a bright light chestnut with shaded white socks and a blaze. 

The last pictures are of the Arabian Mare I'm doing.  The loud Sabino mare.  She's now got a neck which needs more sanding and refining. But she's also getting a tail. Not done yet.

Another New 1/6 Foal In Progress:

I'm still painting the first 1/6 foal, but I have started sculpting another one.  I initially couldn't decide between the two ideas for these but luckily I was able to grab another foal and start on this idea along with the first one. 

Oh and the lion is already in Ebay, so he's complete now.
