Today was a leg sculpting day on this baroque/ andalusian unicorn I’m working on.
Turning these so called “legs” from hideous sausage blobs into actual horse legs was a long process. I’m very out of practice, and this sort of loose piaffe pose was really tricky. The angles from shoulder-elbow-knee-hoof on the front legs was especially difficult.
Hoof-Pastern angles are another thing I really struggle with!
I like how he turned out, he looks fat to me but I was going for the thick necked baroque breed so I’m hoping it looks okay. This is one of those sculptures I’ve been staring at way too long and just need to leave overnight before I continue to pick at him.
He’s going to be painted up to a dark dapple grey and will be for sale.
