Designer Ugo Serrano returns to our pages with this nicely done raven fetish. Carved from antler with an inset garnet eye.
Todd Van Bronkhorst was kind enough to send over some shots of the James Ryman Cthulhu idol from Nemesis Now. I've featured the sculpt before, but wasn't aware it was now commercially available. It's a gorgeous piece, despite some oddness with the paint ops on the eyes. What blew my mind was the fact the 12" figure was available for around $50. That's an absolute steal for a figure like this. With a repaint it would be an absolutely perfect prop.
For Tutorial Tuesday, Dark Horse Workshop brings us this instructional video on how to finish a drinking horn. Suitable cow horns are dirt cheap on Ebay, and you can have a great tabletop or LARP accessory with a minimum of effort.
Spring is in the air, and with it a noticeable uptick in Mythos artworks. The latest is this cool Cthulhu idol from artist Ebrahel Lurci. After all these years it's a joy to discover a new, unique take on the Great Old One.
It's been far too long since we last featured artist James Ewing of the Ewing Workshop. His latest project is this commissioned Egyptian artifact, crafted from brass, copper, and steel with four inset crystals. It's a wonderful piece, but I have to admit I actually like the patinated version more than the polished one.
"With only a slight churning to mark its rise to the surface, the thing slid into view above the dark waters. Vast, Polyphemus-like, and loathsome, it darted like a stupendous monster of nightmares to the monolith, about which it flung its gigantic scaly arms, the while it bowed its hideous head and gave vent to certain measured sounds."
That terrifying moment in Lovecraft's story is captured by this new Dagon statuette from Morok Art Studio.
Ed Brilliant brings us this excellent Cthulhu bust. It's absolutely amazing how good desktop 3D printing has become. I'm still seeing a lot of items with the horrible striations produced by hot melt machines, but the fidelity of resin printers has seriously blurred the line between digital and physical sculpts.
It appears it's the week for Cthulhu-themed Kickstarter premiums. The latest is this trio of items from Bryan Fyffe, featuring a primitive Cthulhu idol, presentation bag, and metal token.
This nicely done King in Yellow plaque and accompanying presentation box come to us from Hastur Tarot. They're premium rewards in Kickstarter for, surprisingly enough, a Hastur-themed tarot deck.
I don't think this is a joke, since it's from the same email address as someone that was looking to commission some Harry Potter props a few years ago.
Dear Sir,Having returned as a penitent to the Catholic Church, I write both to denounce your website as full of evil, Harry Potter as full of devilry and the wickedness of magic and to implore you to do penance likewise in the Holy Church.
Incidentally, my <redacted name> relation was more distant, a lie of false intimacy and another sin.
<redacted name>, the worst of sinners.
As some of you are aware, I'm an ordained minister. My enthusiastic embrace of fleshly delights in my younger days is long past, but rest assured I'm as much a sinner as anyone, . That said, I believe having a Harry Potter wand is the least of the debits in my spiritual ledger.
If I am informed otherwise, hopefully many, many years from now, I will do my utmost to update you.
I'm continually amazed at Alice Tochylovska's creativity and craftsmanship. Her latest work is this bound, two-headed swearing gnome specimen. Click through to see her extensive gallery and the creature's detailed lore.
