Just a couple of things to show this week:

 Here is Imp with the markings started. I still have some more to do on them, and I will still need to do some more on his hind legs, also, as well as his face and hooves, etc. So I would say he's about 60% done.
And here's a Little Lonestar which will be a chestnut pinto. He's in his ugly stage with just a couple of thin layers of paint.

Everything else is either in the prep stage or the drying/looks-too-similar-to-last-photo stage.

That's it!

Misc Stuff

Here's the little Imp commission I'm working on. He's going to be a minimal pinto, so I think I'm going to make his front legs white and also  a patch over his shoulder. I wanted to have at least one leg without white to show the soft shading on his legs, but I wasn't positive that was something that happened with tobianos, even minimal ones. I had to search for a while, but I did find a photo reference of a minimal pinto with only two white legs, so I know it's possible. Here's the other side:
And here are a couple more commissions in different stages of prep:
I also bought a bottle of Lascaux White Acrylics:
I think this is the stuff that I had heard Jaime Baker recommend. I have to say: I love it! It's very opaque and covers in just a few layers. So convenient! It brushes out beautifully and has a matte finish. I'm using it on the base layers of Hazel before I lay in a more "natural" white, not one so blindingly bright as this.
I also got a box of Super Sculpey to play around with. I haven't used it before, but I like the feel of it. I'm going to use it just for fun and to practice manes/tails.
