ICEE - International Customizing Equine Event

International Customizing Equine Event (ICEE)GENERAL: This is NOT a contest!!This is to tie in with Jennifer Bray Buxton’s NaMoPaiMo (National Model Painting Month), so that all customizing and prepping has been completed by February 1, 2019 and then continue on to Hanna Bear’s National Tack Month for a Triple Crown in modeling.x

The idea of this event is to motivate artists and non-artists if all skill levels to challenge themselves in a supportive community to customize a model in 2 months, October AND November (61 days).

RULE 1: ENTRANTS - Open to individuals of all ages and skill levels worldwide.
RULE 2: PROJECT MODEL - When finished the Project model must be 50% or more horse "body".
Completed model is to be equine, other Equids (mule, donkey, zebra, etc.) or equine-like (unicorn, pegasus, hippocampus, seahorse, centaur and other mythical or fantasy horse-like creature).
Only 3-D models will be included in the project model category.
However, ICEE encourages participants to also complete any number of 2-D and non-equine projects for the "I Also Made This!" category they wish within the 2 month period of the Event.
RULE 2a) One 3-D model equine (etc.) of any scale or medium required.
Project model can be in any condition at the start of the event, however the work required as expressed in the artists statement MUST be completed within the Event months.
Rule 3: DEGREE OF PROJECT - Anything from simple ear repair/reposition to total body rebuild to sculpt from scratch.
It is up to YOU to challenge YOUR skills.
RULE 4: ENTRY - One (1) project model per participant to count as the official event entry.
To be declared at time of entry by way of artist statement, and/or sketch or a reference photo.
E.g. Artist statement: I am planning to make a __________ in the __________ pose.
Once an entry has been made you cannot go back and change things after the fact. If you aren't 100% sure don't sign up yet.
RULE 4a: The customizing must be done 100% by the participant.
RULE 5: COMPLETION - A model is considered to be finished when no more altering or tweaking is necessary. 

There are several other rules but these were the main ones. 

The entirety of the stated finished customization MUST be completed between 12:01am Oct 1 and 11:59pm Nov 30, your time zone.
To be counted finished you MUST post 1 photo of the finished project in the "DONE!" album or email to the host.

My project model is a Breyer Stablemate (1:32 scale) Dungaree that I am going to make into a dragon-type pegasus with bat wings, dragon tail, horn, scales and more. 

This is what she looks like with things attached and before sculpting begins. 

I started this in October. Finally on Sunday, November 4, I got out of my head and did some sculpting. 

Today (Tuesday, November 20, 2018) I actually sat down and completed the last bit of sculpting. Added back ridges, mane, and forelock with magic sculpt and then the leg designs that will be raised under the paint with modeling paste. So my official entry is complete. Not sure when she will be primered and painted but this challenge is DONE!! WOO HOO!!!
