Home stretch

It's been a couple weeks since I've posted pictures of the Turtle Arab, and I'm pleased to report that she is rapidly nearing completion. Something about the front legs still looks off to me, but mostly I'm pleased with how she's turned out. Whenever I start a new custom, I hope to both improve the original piece and to change it into something I like a bit better. It's probably immodest of me to say this, but I do feel as though I've achieved both goals with this particular horse.

She's not quite ready for paint as there are still some prepping issues. However, at this point, I don't anticipate making any major changes. I like this side better.
I would like for her to be a flaxen chestnut with lots of chrome. Unfortunately, I'm not sure that's a color I can pull off. I've tried it before, and the results were not pretty. It's quite likely she'll be in primer for a long, long time.
