These past couple months have been crazy as I try to crank out a bunch of model horse tutorials before my upcoming summer projects hit me (looking at you, MEPSA champ book). But that's not the only thing I've been working on.
For starters, I finally bit the bullet and started an email newsletter for my studio. It took me about a month of testing and designing it to match my brand, but it's finally live! Those who subscribe can expect a few emails each month about what's new in the studio, new and future video tutorials, and sales horses. It's worth a look, so check it out here...
Speaking of biting a bullet, I finally tried my new airbrush with stablemate dapples. It works, ladies and gentlemen! The brush can work small enough for micro mini dapples, so know I just have to get familiar with it enough to get more realistic dapples (I'm picky with my dapples).
In the meantime, my personal piece, a slightly re-sculpted Breyer Django, now has a little extra detail with some faint dapples in his luscious black coat.
And lastly, both the Django and the Rivet that opened this post were stars of my latest tutorial video on how to paint a shimmery blue black. Want to learn my secret? Click the video to play. I also have to extend thanks to Melissa Detta (her work is on Facebook as Equine Art by Melissa Maitland) for clueing me into interference blue.
