It's been a long and winding road with this guy but I think he's about done. There are things I would have liked to have gone a little differently with him but I am happy with the overall "experiment" aspect of it. It was fun to try something a little out of the ordinary.

I've been getting some good advice on the mane, for some tweaking that would improve it. So will be reworking it some. Here is a bit of an update though, I had planned to put mane on the near side covering his neck also but realized that would be "mane overkill". So I am going to give him a bare neck this side and just some mane falling over up near his ears. The added whispy hairs on the lit up mane here are just quick photoshopped suggestions I haven't repainted it yet. I have started working in the shoulder area more also. Still a lot to go on the forelock.

I am really having fun with this. I don't know that it will be exactly "correct" in the end but it's really fun being able to play and experiment and try some new things to see how they work out. Painting "outside the box" a bit. The bright mane is a little scary right now but I have more to do to it and by the time the other rim highlights are put in on top of him I'm hoping it will all balance out.
