Thanks Xherman !

 

This isn't one of those easy paint jobs.

I did have a lot of fun with the basing on this one.

Building a little trellis to put the flowers on out of a paperclip, and painting it up

cracked me up !  Thanks for the vote, and the comment !

He looks very good and regal!!!

He's a cat... That's inborn and has nothing to do with the beautifully painted clothes. 

 

I'm more a fan of the natural wreath instead of a golden one, but that's just me.

 

The base... 

You could have put him onto a large base, then used GreenStuff, milliput or something to make a flat floor that covered the cast base, added lines to mark out tiles, and painted it as a marble floor?

The cast base has been removed, he is pinned to the cork base that I made.  I also made a trellis to attach to the base, painted it white, and added the purple flowers to it. 

Thanks for your input !

Oh.. Gadgetman.. Du kan snakker Norsk med meg,

"Du kan snakke Norske med meg"... Not "snakker" ;-)

Where do you hang out, then?

Thanks Pochi !

He is a lot of fun to paint, and at first I thought.. oh yeah...not that difficult until I got into those purple robes...LOL.

Highlighting that Toga takes a bit of thinking !

Color Choices also can be all over the place.  I thought gold/purple/blood Red/ even mint green for the white robe.

You can also make this a free hand nightmare if you want to.

I like when a mini provides me with a lot of options.. this one does!

Its up there with my favorite DS Mini's also.

The white works really good to contrast the purple. And purple is 'the right' colour for the toga. 

 

Here's a lot more info about purple than anyone would ever be able to remember, or have use for...

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Purple

Thanks for the info !

Dang !  That is a lot of purple know how !

Thanks for all the likes gang.

I was wondering if everyone didn't like the anthropomorphic characters.

They are cute; however, don't underestimate the complexity of painting the Mini.

Dealing with that much fur, shadowing, highlighting, and blending will keep you dancing quite a bit.

Since I have picked up Ub3r's philosophy on basing, I have slowed down my painting speed,

but I sure have amped up my enjoyment.  So thanks again.

      Hi everyone, here is DSM8078, Archer the Grumpy Cat Warlock. This two-piece model was sculpted by David Summers for Dark Sword Miniatures, Critter Kingdoms Anthropomorphic Animals line. I really enjoyed painting this beautiful model full of intricate details. I opted for nmm and added a light osl mainly on top of its head. I mainly used Reaper's MSP HD acrylic paint.

      Hi everyone, here is the first model I painted this year. It's DSM8116, Sphynx Cat Druid with Staff from model is from Dark Sword Miniatures, Critter Kingdoms - Anthropomorphic Animals. This three-piece model was sculpted by Dave Summers. I've assembled the ram skull on top of the staff and the staff itself before painting the model.
       
      2018 have been an amazing painting year for me, with a little more than 100 models painted. I wish you all a great 2019 and hope you will find the time to paint as much as you'd like to.

      Hi everyone, this is my latest Critter. This model is from Dark Sword Miniatures, Critter Kingdoms - Anthropomorphic Animals. Here is DSM7969, Black Cat Avenging Thief. This multi-piece model was sculpted by Dave Summers. I was inspired by the colors of the samurai to paint his clothes and armor. The left and right arm, the extremities of the headband and scarf and the scabbard were all glued to the model before painting. The cloak was painted separately before the final assembling. I wish you all the best for 2019.

      Yarr! I buried my treasure in the litterbox. Ahoy! Matey! Is this a mewtiny? So many funny jokes are possible here.
       
      From Dark Sword Miniatures, Critter Kingdoms - Anthropomorphic Animals. Here is DSM7971, Ali Sparrow the Female Cat Pirate. This two-piece model was sculpted by Dave Summers. I've assembled the chest lid before painting the model. However, I think it was not the right strategy. It was hard to reach some spots and paint some part of the loot. I hope you will like it.

      Good day everyone, here is a Dark Sword Miniatures, Critter Kingdoms - Anthropomorphic Animals   I painted this week. This Pretty Princess DSM8017, Victorian Female Cat is a two-piece model that was sculpted by Dave Summers. She looks a little anxious, I think she may be waiting for a late train. It was a challenge to paint all the folds and lace, I'm very pleased about its final look.
       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       
      I also took pictures on how to paint cats eyes in six easy steps. Is it layering or wet blending? I don't even know… Anyhow, here is how I paint cat eyes. I use Reaper Miniatures MSP paint.
       

       
      1. I paint the surrounding of the eyes in black or dark brown then paint the eye balls in beige. Beige is a color that covers black easily and it helps to get a brighter iris color.
       

       
      2. The base color is a blend of 09226 peacock green and 09031 tanned leather.
       

       
      3. I add more 09031 tanned leather to the blend and build up a paler focal point at the center of the eyes.
       

       
      4. I add 09008 sun yellow in the blend to highlight the eye balls.
       

       
      5. I use 09037 pure black to paint the vertical pupils typical to the cats.
       

       
      6. And, I finally add 09039 pure white dots to act as reflections of ambient light.
