Chopin' up some fun

Well the muse came back with a vengance!  And she said it was time do be a little destructive.  XD  What else could I do but listen?  I decided to get that metal piece out of my Ruffian donation.  Now I just have to rebuild the hoof and sand, sand, sand.  I'm debating redoing the mane and tail as it's supposed to be a portrait of the late Eight Bells and she did not have that much hair.  I'm definately going to adjust the face to make it more feminine too. 

I can not believe how big that rod was!

And Blue got beheaded.  He's going to get a brand new lowered head an neck and so body tweaking.  That's about as far as I 've thought this out though.  Lol

Ok muse, now we need to go on to not so destructive things.  I've got enough bodies around, I need some finished ones!

I Need More Space

Oh my, I seem to have lost track of time again.  Looking for a job *mostly* full time now since I can't seem to settle down and work on models full time either.  I'm at a standstill with most of them.  I'm not quite sure how to continue painting the Nitro, oils are new to me and I don't want to mess up horribly on such a large horse.  (I knew I should have practiced on a cheap sm or something).  And the LG body is legless again.  At least all is not lost.  I've gotten quite a few new models to distract me.  :)

My good friend Christine got me a Della Robbia for my Andy conga, I am so thrilled! 

My guy got me a Ethereal Fire and the new Secretariat.  I knew there was a reason I kept him around. Lol

I saw this little gal and couldn't pass her up.  I'm not a huge fan of the yearling mold, but the color on this one is great.  I'm pretty sure her name is Vail.

I received the next few in a trade.  Magnifico, Padron's Psyche and Uncalled For.  Thinking about it, I'm rather astounded at how many of these horse are chestnuts.  I'm a bay person, how did that happen?

This is a CM Sandicast by Dani Schacht.  I saw him when she first listed him for sale, but didn't have the money at the time.  This has to be my all time favorite color on a horse, that yummy super dark mealy bay.  (must be why I love my mare!  Lol)

This guy is going to get a little bit of CM work done to him.  I'm planning on having a bullfighting scene with Alvaro.  :)

I finally managed to get a picture of Chickory.  Another model I'm glad I have a macro setting for.

I think I'm going to paint him similar to this guy.  Debating if I'm going to make him a black and white or a bay and white.

Mel Miller was having a sale on her resins during December and I had to pick up a Have Blue.  I absolutely love my Fly By Wire she sculpted, but I saw Braymere's CM FBW without the base and I love the idea.  I just have to figure out how to get that wire off!  Suggestions?

This is one of those horse I don't know if I should admit to having.  O:)  After a long period of time payments, I was able to get my grail model.  I'm even more thrilled that he's unpainted!  Three guesses what color he's going to be.  I have to say, I've never seen a horse with so many pinholes, but I haven't had a chance to see any unpainted Ebrels recently.  Lol. 

Ok, two silly pictures.  Mostly to prove that I have no space at all.  Here's my chestnuts having a nice conversation.  (I think they're talking about Nitro, he doesn't look very happy about it either!)

And I don't think the bull got a very good meal on his way over, he's snacking on all my SM's!!! 

Ok, I think that's all for now.  I really need my muse to come back, my ponies need some lovin'.
