In the previous blog post, you could see how I created the basic shape and proportions of the little foal. To me it is the easy part, because I have been practising art for such a long time so shapes and proportions come naturally to me, I do not almost have to think on how and what I make.

Next is the hard part, giving the colt its unique personality. This will be a sculpture that is pretty close to reality, and moreover I have a genuine model I want the result to look like. I spend much time creating the head, because the head is a very important part of a sculpture and one of the first parts to look as as a viewer. Because it is a foal, it has just like any other young child a head that is large compared to the rest of the body. I also want the heads posture to show that the colt is both curious and a little cocky. It’s a small stud …

Finally, I added the white markings on the head, just as on the model. It is a very time-consuming job, when you work in this size as little as half a millimeter can be the difference between perfection and catastrophe.
