This horse is one of four from Essex limber with horses BROE 3.
I don't think it was too bad for my first effort. But there are some problems. The biggest one being that the transition from light to dark is too abrupt. And the second being that the coat doesn't look "natural" enough.
Another wash or two should take care of that though. I did ink this figure after priming in order to pre-shade it and to show me where the natural contours were. That did help me out and it's something I'll do until I get a better handle on these guys. Really the hardest part was the photography. It's completely different from photographing a 32mm, much more difficult to have the camera 'see" what the eye sees.
I'll take any advice or critique you guys are willing to give me and apply that to the next horse. When they're all done, they will appear in a diorama with some of the Essex troops I purchased.
Tomorrow I hope to have the Cast of Characters posted for my story and after that I'm going to be taking at least a week off to get some painting and terrain building done. This story is burning a hole through me right now and it wants to be done, so I'm going to get cracking on it straight away.
I'm knackered right now, so I'm posting this and then it's off to the Land of Nod with me, but I'll be back in a few hours.
Well folks it's Tuesday and it's a long ways till Friday. So grab those reins, dig in your spurs and ride that horse till it lathers. I know I will.
