Anthous by Magweno Anthous by Magweno
Made for AliceFelidae over on FA, designed by :devpainted-bee:

On the reference sheet it says: "Anthous is a small plant spirit who looks after the blooming and polination of the star shaped flowers of spring and summer. If you keep such flowers in your bedroom, he will visit you in your dreams."

The trickiest part of this commission was getting the dripping nectar whiskers right and the fleshy leafy petal ears posable. They rotate back and forth and up and down thanks to a ball-and-socket rig. The entire body has wire running through it so it can be gentle repositioned, and his face and paws are polymer clay painted with acrylics.

If you're interested in a commission please send me an email to!

Keep an eye out for immediate updates and chat on my tumblr:

And see what's available right now in my Etsy, I have a cute Alpaca in there looking for a home.

Who honestly needs to suck up to Lee's poseable artwork when really on deviantArt there are much more creative and fun art dolls than hers?!?!  People who stick to her like bugs on flypaper don't see the point...
No backstories that make each doll unique, corny fake jewels and blunt imagination?  Unicorns - from her raw imagination.  Yep.  And the animals, she basically just paints the head and uses fur to match color schemes and blah blah blah...
And people call that IMAGINATION and CREATIVITY?  I used to be stuck on flypaper with her as well, blindsided but now I can see more...

I heard that she took off with all of your tips and gave you 100 percent credit on who taught her how to make them...
Yes self taught sculptor but no self taught poseable art dollist (not a word but who cares) herself...
I love your work!  What's up with Lee in her stuck up world?  Yes not kind words but she gave no words at all to credit you...

Very beautiful! Reminds me a bit of the 'flower binder' cat/kittens in the 'Magic and the Healing' books by Nick O'Donohoe... But your creature is way more sophisticated. 
Thank you for sharing your wonderful talent! :)
