    Painting Painted ponies

    I am a painter with average skills and I am looking for help in painting wood elf horses. I want to paint them like painted ponies, Indian horses, or whatever they are called. If someone knows the proper name for these horses I would love to know it. I started off with chaos black primer and have coated them all in charadon granite, but I am unsure where to go from here. Any and all help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Just as a FYI, "American Indian" horse isn't a breed of horse, it's just any Spanish horse that was adapted for use by the natives. So you have a very, very broad color range. OP, if you have any photos of a particular horse you'd like to emulate, I'd just recommend using them as source material. Sorry that I don't have more specific advice, but using a source for real-life material is often your best bet!

    Im not sure what the breed is but the terms for the markings are piebald and skewbald i think!

    Do a google image search and you should find some paintings for inspiration

    specifically piebald and skewbald refers to the colours involved, generally both would be described as "coloured" horses, but I thinkwhat you need to master is the art of painting dappled horses, from there you can do anything

    Ah that makes sense, black and white and brown and white respectively? i thought they were called pallomino, but i did a search and it turns out they are completely different again!

    Piebald and skewballed are colours (like grey, dun, black, chestnut, bay)

    I am thinking of horses that look like:








    Anyone know a good way to get the horses to turn out this way? There is little to no detail on GW harses so how does one get it to look like it is not a flat surface?
    Thanks everyone.

    There is a thread in the painting forum I can recommend to look at. All credits go to Mousekiller!!! I have painted nothing of the following... :cry:

    Look at the cow, the whole mini is WIP.

    Cow Body (RMS): Shadow Grey (CP), Ghost White, 50:50, Leather White, 50:50, Linen White
    Cow Spots (RPP): Dragon Black
    Cow Skin (CP): Dark Flesh, Tanned Flesh, 50:50, Tentacle Pink, 50:50, White

    If you want to see more and I think so... Click! Mousekiller's BIG WIPs

    I would recommend to send him a PM if you have any questions, as far as I can tell he is a veeery friendly guy that will hopefully not be angry that I used his pics and tell other people to contact him...
