Dapple Horse Maquette by NatAsplund Dapple Horse Maquette by NatAsplund
EDIT: New photos....
Here's a horse maquette I did for a side "job" to try to earn some money for my student loans this month :I He's for sale at Etsy, and I might add is my first Etsy product! ooo. [link]

Let me know what you think on the price... like i seriously am terrible at pricing maquettes, just cause they take me forever, and it's just cause i don't do them often... I just kinda looked at prices of other horse sculptures on etsy and kinda guestimated...

I kinda want to do a Thorin sculpt after this... maybe, i dont ever actually have time for this XI

Trades are on their way, sorry for the wait.

I love the way he's stylized! :)

I have no idea how much these go for either, but since I'm also a student, it's out of my price range.

I don't know sculpture pricing, but I do recommend you do something about your photos... Take the time to set up a nice backdrop and lighting and that will do wonders, even with a crummy camera. That will make a huge world of difference to potential buyers. =)

That aside, I think it's adorable!! I love the design and colors. Very good job!

Pricing stuff like that is tricky since it takes so much time. I hope you can sell him. You're so talented. I wish I could buy him.

(Maybe you should look into casting and reduce your sculpting time a bit. Just pain them, ya know?)

Good luck and congrats on your first listing!

ya it's so hard... like even the materials were like expensive, cause super sculpy is like $21 a box... and with time... it's like to me anything under $100 is not worth it for me ... but it's pretty expensive for others...

Ya i was thinking of casting... i didn't for him, but if i get to my Thorin sculp and he turns out good ill definitely cast him.

thanks so much!!!

well i've seen worse sculpts on Etsy for three times the price... but like anyting under $100 it's like not worth it for me to sell, cause of the materials and time put into it...
thanks though :D
