Finished!

I'm so happy to say that I've finally finished this big guy! I really went all out on the roaning on him, almost all of it is layer after layer of single hair roaning. I don't think I will ever paint another horse this large again, at least not in this pattern lol!

Here are a couple more pictures, I think you can click on all of these to see larger photos. I will have more photos on my website and Facebook page soon. 



All the other commissions I'm working on are at least halfway finished, and now that Max is done I will be able to work much more on them.

That is amazing. I can't imagine how much work it must have been to paint all those little hairs, but the end result is drop-dead gorgeous.

Amazing, I can't believe all the detail in the hair on his chest. It looks real!

This looks really professional! The blending is subtle and natural looking. Best I've seen in a while. Hope to see more of your work in person.
