Yesterday at the thrift shop I found some long craft fake fur. There was quite a large piece of black, perfect for a horse's mane. I also got some yarn for the tail. I have been working a couple of hours on it but there is still a lot to do. I have to shape the legs, especially the back one and finish the background. The legs are quite difficult to get anywhere near right on these animals. Partly it's because they are so thin that there isn't much room for error. Now that I look at the picture, I think I may not do that much more shaping on the legs. It's funny how you see it differently in a picture than when you are worknig on it. Mistakes do show up more but sometimes you see that more shaping wouldn't necessarily make it look better.
What do you think?
