|See what I mean? It IS the Hanoverian stallion by Schleich,|
but the little weasels gave it a palomino paint job, so I got confused.
|Less horsey... More a mythical combo of horse/goat/lion.|
|Here he is, all primed up.|
|I'm using Vallejo paints, as well as Liquitex titanium white for extra punchy highlights.|
It's a slow layering process.
Finally finished! I didn't want him to have a grey, albino or cremello colour, but a bit of all the above. I remember reading "The Last Unicorn" by Peter S. Beagle when I was in highschool (YEEEEAAAARS ago!) and it described the fabled animal has having "a coat the colour of sea foam." I think it worked out okay. The photos doesn't show it well, but the horn has golden iridescent hues to it, and so do the hooves (I know... Kinda "kitschy", but I like it.) I had lots of fun making this one. I had great inspirational music to work to... "Unicorne" by Faun (my favourite band!)
