Alien Fetus

This alien fetus comes to us from Brogan Paul Johnson.  I believe the tendrils are African porcupine quills.

Making a Fossilized Fairy

This nicely done fossilized fairy specimen comes to us from artist Stephanie Pui-Mun Law.

Click through on the link and you'll find a detailed look at how she created it. The piece is essentially a 3D sketch, starting with the initial design on art board...

...with the bones of the skeleton then built up with gesso.  That simplified explanation leaves out the rather important step of capturing the shape of anatomically accurate bones using a semi-liquid medium.  As with most things, the basic technique is easy.  It's the execution that requires real artistic talent.

Fun and Games

Alberto Cano of the Cthulhu Project has a new Kickstarter featuring some Mythos inspired playing cards and a fun little Cthulhu dice game.  Admittedly, it's not the kind of thing I'm normally into, but he's my go-to example of someone who does Kickstarters right.  Realistic goals, good production timelines, and, most importantly, a willingness to communicate when the inevitable glitches do pop up.

Blood for the Blood God, Skulls for the Skull Throne!

The artists at Brutal Forge bring us this very well done Warhammer LARP chaos warrior.
