Plato Pinup by Nephtis Plato Pinup by Nephtis
I read about the new contest over at :iconcats-artists: - and I plan to contribute a handsome tom.

The world needs more male pin ups - and I have a thing for overlooked characters - hence Plato.

Had to freeze the video several time in order to get a costume reference and I'm not sure I got it right - very little good backviews there. I hope he's recognizable!

Texture used: [link] by :iconprincess-of-shadows:

Catnip: [link] I tried to put it in relation to the cat-sized character as they do it with props on stage, but I'm not sure it worked. Looks more like too big leaves...
Anyway I was trying to think which cat would be influenced by it - and love it - and it seemed like Plato would be a good candidate for that habit. ;p

KITTY! :heart: Very very pretty, and sexy. ^_- Gotta agree with you, more male pin ups need to be made! The sexy boys need love, too!

Oh geeze, I know I've probably said this on every comment I've given you, but EEEK! The poossseeee :heart: So nice! I honestly think that without that little smirk, it'd be a bit ordinary. Just my thoughts.

Background was an amazing choice, and makes me think he's leaning against a wall. =D I likes it!

I've only seen Cats once, and that was over two years ago, so I can't really give any help on his design, besides saying I love the colors and markings! ^^;

I like the catnip as well, and how he's holding it. Almost maybe in a 'Want it? Then come get it, baby... <3' Perhaps in a teasing fashion? ^_-

All in all - another amazing piece from you, and yet again, I'm stunned by your epic work!!

:whoa: HOLY PLATO! That's HAWT!

His face turned out great :( Aww, damn! You probably just stole that first place! -kicks can over- This isn't fair DX ....You should have entered it last minute so that more people would have been crushed even harder ;D

But seriously, this pic turned out insane! I love the detail in the arm and leg warmers and- his tail!! I lurve his fluffy tail <333

:drool: definitely going to win SOMETHING, this is above an honourable mention! HEAR ME!

Thanks for your confidence but I think it's too early to praise. There are an awful lot of talented people out there - and they might just do what you suggested: see what they are up against before submitting something better. ;p
I just liked the idea so much that I needed to do it - I'm not really into this for the competition, the amount of positive feedback has already made it worth it.

AHHHHHHHHHH OMG!!!! -Fan gasm- I LOVE IT!!! Plato is my fave tom! but he hardly ever gets art, so its such a pleasure to see him drawn by such a talented artist!!

The folds in his warmers are gorgeous! and the details in his body and fur is enviable! I think you really got his face and all over body language down, his attitude really stands out. What a magnificent beast he is :)

The Nip looks great as well! it really helps bring out his colour, I love the tints of yellow in his tail! Very well done :clap: Good luck with the contest! I think you have a huge chance of winning with this Beautiful drawing! :D

Glad you like him - both as a character and of cours my drawing.

And now let's keep the praise down, who knows what other entries will be submitted here? I know there are an awful lot of talented artists out there who enjoy drawing jellicles.

*ggg* personally I have a soft spot for characters that don't claim the spotlight. And I wanted to do a not too obvious choice for a pinup. Glad you like him despite Plato not being a favorite, that's a huge compliment.

Well, the main reason I don't like him is because I'm a Victoria/Mr.Mistofolees shipper, but I can appreciate good art and I'm very tolerant of ships that oppose mine. :P

:iconnephtis:
Nephtis Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2011
Oh, I see. I'm not really into any ships I like individual characters more than pairing them up.
