Quick update: I thought you might want to know, model horse hobbyists, that I'm currently working on a medieval tack set.

I don't make tack by myself. I usually buy it. This time, I bought most of the costume, but I'm working (pretty hard, lemme tell you) on a full chainmail armor which will be used instead of the silver clothing you can see on the pictures below. 

I also plan to buy a new bridle, but I'd really like to craft a head armor too. But I have no idea how to do that. So I still have to decide what I'm doing with the bridle. 

These AREN'T MY PHOTOS. I will receive the tack set soon, I guess! For now, it's planned to go on my roan Salinero. Can't wait ;)

Some things may be a little off, but the details are really cool.

Hi there :)

 I decided to present myself a little so the first journal entry available, as I don't update very often, won't be one that assume you know and follow me. Let's make it quick and painless!

I'm 20 and obviously collect model horses. I'm also a huge fan of some videogames series such as Zelda, Assassin's Creed and Dragon Age. (I also loved many stand-alone games like The Last of Us or Journey.) What I look for into these is, just like in books: story and characters. 
About model horses, I have a little less than twenty horses and no room for more. I look for customs and resins, even if most of my collection is composed of traditional OFs. I also have a dozen of Schleichs and Collectas but I'm not actually counting them in: My interest is in the 1:9 scale.
I also have an addiction to elaborating tacksets and always looking for more :D

I wish you all a wonderful day. ;)

Third And Last Dressage Set - 1 by NyxVivendi
Third And Last Dressage Set - 1
Second shot: nyxvivendi.deviantart.com/art/…

I swear this is my last set.
There was my first: nyxvivendi.deviantart.com/art/…
Then my second: nyxvivendi.deviantart.com/art/…

The first had many flaws, and after a while I wanted to "upgrade" to another custom. My Bleecker was indeed gorgeous but I wasn't 100% satisfied with its finish, which didn't fit well to close-up photos. I ultimately commissioned this one from Deb Brown, as I first wanted to, as my Palouse painted by her was as flawless as I wanted my Totilas to be. 
This photo was tricky as wind sometimes knocked the horse off the edge he was on, and I had to grab him before he'd reach the floor. (I wouldn't have tried this if the wind was blowing the opposite direction, as my model would have fallen down a 2.5 meters drop. Not a good idea.)

I ended up laying a penguin plush where he would fall, for satefy purposes. :D

So this is my very final dressage set. I assure you that my photos aren't doing it justice. I'm very very happy about my new saddle!

At Least I Improved by NyxVivendi
At Least I Improved
The horse fanatic I am had to do this someday.
I stumbled upon this old drawing today, dated October 2005. I was ten years old. The bottom drawing was made in February 2015.
I look at this and even if I'm tempted to say "... mane got shorter and shorter with time" I'm happy to see I improved, (I sure had to!) not as much as I wished, though.

Can't wait for the 2025 version, haha.

Disclaimer: I don't draw too often. I used to draw daily at school (in math class, for instance: which I used to fail because ponies were much more worth my attention than the teacher) but now I'm at work, it doesn't happen very regularly... Well, I usually sketch down a horse on the rinse cup of the espresso machine but, basically, I don't draw anymore. Sometimes, I grab post-its and try to achieve something (like the one on the picture) but I lack exercise.
