Still trying to get the hang of this Corel Painter program. Not as tactile as using a paintbrush, but you can balance that by undoing your mistakes. Which makes me more apt to play with color if I'm not killing a six dollar sheet of paper each time I experiment. Working oil of a horse head.
Since I like the three dimensional also, I've played with painting a horse fairly literally. We did a painted ponies charity auction -I didn't feel up to tackling a full size fiberglass horse and getting it painted in time, so I went with a Breyer sized horse. I chose a Clydesdale, so naturally he became... Bravehorse.
This is Bravehorse, who was auctioned off and went to a good Celtic home.
Trust me, he looked much better before I flashburned him. Next time I won't wait until 10 minutes before I need to turn a project in to photograph it.
I'll even put up pictures of a REAL horse this weekend. I haven't painted him. Yet. He came pre-painted...
