NaMoPaiMo day eleven

Happily, we didn't need to wait to long for the big reveal. Here's Melanie Miller's Altynai in all his post-masking fluid speckled glory.
Lots of other artists also made good progress today. This is Julie Ward's Geronimo,
Kim Brandner's Matryona...
and Corina Roberts' Tumbleweed. They are all looking fantastic.
At this point, we have quite a few horses in the Winners' Circle.
One of the newest arrivals is Caroline Sigwalt's Lil Rio. She writes: I did it! Everyone, meet Peanut! He is a Lil Rio resin painted to a bay/purple roan! If you're having issues with your NaMoPaiMo horse, don’t give up! I had this guy finished two days ago, but there was something I didn’t like about him that I couldn't figure out. Turns out once I put him away and came back to him the next day, his eye was off and I didn’t like the color of his base! So I redid his eye and the base and he looked much better. Moral of the story is, sometimes you have to put up the piece and come back with a fresh eye if something looks amiss.
That's good advice, Caroline, and your pony is adorable.
Congratulations on a job well done. You are the NaMoPaiMo Champion of the Day.
