New and improved tutorial of sculpting small-scale model horse ears, now with better footage and the steps from the second video included, so you can see the entire process from start to finish.

The model horse hobby activity seems to have exploded all over the internet as people are home, and many customizing. While I am still working a full-time job, even I have noticed an up-tick in my customizing productivity.

But enough of that. Let's take a look at the projects I've been working on!

A couple weeks ago, I asked my Instagram followers what sort of tutorials they would like to see from me. Video tutorials won the majority for preferred format, so I figured it was time to actually do something with that channel I set up a while ago. Many people wanted to see sculpting and painting tutorials, so I'm taking advantage of a long Christmas stay-cation to record some of those videos, starting with how I sculpt ears. That video is live now.
