A while back I bought the Haflinger Mare by Breyer, originally sculpted by Brigette Eberl.
I never like the paintwork on the Breyers horses, so I decided I'd like to gradually get all my Breyer horses repainted by different artists, so far I have two.
A friend posted lots of photos of Vivana's works on STS and I fell in love with her incredible talent, so I sent my Haflinger off to be repainted by her... and just a few days ago she arrived home!
Painted by Viviana to my specifications:)

Last week I finished a Siberian Tiger, the scale was in 1:30 being a bit larger than Britains, which is 1:32.
This commissioned model was based off a real tiger called 'Altai' a former resident of Cologne Zoo in Germany.
I have added a picture of a Britains tiger for scale, so you can see how small he is.

This is my first attempt at repainting a Breyer horse.
I enjoyed it, I think I could do a better job a second time round, as I wasn't happy with the dapples. I wasn't sure how to do them and tried looking for a technique online, but only found turtorials for dapple greys.
This is the Classic scale Breyer Selle Francais
Painted into a Dapple Bay

This is a model by Black Horse Ranch, you can read all about the model *here* - the model is called 'Companion' and was sculpted to go with the Hagen-Renaker 'Crusader' by Maureen Love.
This is an unpainted casting, the scale is classic, 1:12
I have plans on what colour he will be, I'll post some photos in a minute... first some of the model himself:
And a size comparison photo
Now for the colour I have chosen, he will be a Dapple Grey, which I believe is the typical colour for a Percheron. Something like this:
