PostSubject: A collection of Dogs and Cats (custom ordered)   Tue Apr 27, 2010 10:50 pm

Hello i wanted to share this collection of cats and mostly dogs that have been custom made for a family member of mine by the artist that creates the animal collection for my zoo.
They are not wild animals, but i think many of you like dogs and cats as well so i desided to share.
A distant cousin of mine, allways had a dream of having a miniature dog collection, she loves all breeds of dogs and her dream was to put a collection together and displayed in a custom glass stand in her house, around 4 months ago i comissioned one of the best miniature artists in the world to create a very comprehensive collection of dog breeds all in perfect scale with eachother, my cousin has given me permission to share this wonderfull photos before the collection takes a final trip to her home.
I will have to do it in parts since there is so many figures, i will list the species included in each part starting with this one.
Burmese cat
German short hair pointer (two dogs)
Maine cat
English settler
black and tan coonhound (two dogs)
Norwegian Elk Hound (two dogs)
Greyhound (two dogs)

Great set of dogs, your cousin should be proud, and your model maker has mad skills. Thanks for the photos, can't wait until you start showing your zoo animals, they will be one of the highlights of this web site.

Awesome set of dogs. Thanks for sharing. The artist did a great job and you have a lucky cousin. The poses on some of them are absolutely amazing, as well as the details.

Hi There,
Thank you for your comments, i think she is really lucky to have such a great collection all at one time, there is already plans for a part two, but will have to wait until i get some new species for my zoo, i have placed that in backseat for the past few month as the artist was bussy creating this collection for her, and i was bussy buying as many rare African/Egyptian/Asian/Middle easter architectural components as possible for my zoo, all very rare items, and extremely hard to track down in the markets of China.

Here some pics of the rest of the collection[img][/img]

I think i might have missed a couple but it was a total of 55 figures created in 4 months to be exact.
Eventually there will be another 55 figures created to complete her collection.

THank you for all your comments of appreciation, it really means a lot since some of the poses where my idea, everything else just the incredible talent of a very gifted individual.

And Willy, no worries, i will share some very special models in this forum with all of you, this forum feels like a very good home already, as you can see i was never this active in the other forum, it is a very good group of people here, even thought i do not know everybody, but i feel like i do, so i'm very confortable sharing ideas, and figure models.

the next set of custom figures that i will post pics of, are of a species that is very high in the list of animal figure collectors.

Gracias Jorge, pero no son mi coleccion, el artista que trabaja en la gran coleccion de mi zoologico en 1:12 escala, la creo para un familiar mio, ella es la del amor por los perros, lo mio es crear el zoologico mas detallado, realista, y en escala del mundo, llevo 10 anos en este projecto y a cambiado muchas veses, pero por los ultimos anos trabajando con algunos de los artistas de miniaturas mas talentosos del mundo e finalmente encontrado el rumbo correcto.

I try to translate:

Thank you Jorge.
But this is not my collection, but is made by the artist who is making much of my big collection of animals for my 1:12 collection.
They have been made for a family member of mine, who loves dogs.
But i am making a zoo much more deetailed, realistic and on a real life scale, on which i am working for 10 years already, and in between, i changed many many things(which i already had).
But the last years i work with some of the finest and most talented sculpting-artists for miniature models in the world, to make everything correct.
Please correct me if i was wrong Danny... Laughing
