Time for this month's roundup of geeky eye-candy!
Victoria P. linked me up to Justin Hillgrove's site, and he's got some super fun prints over there:
"Party Crasher," 11X17 print, $20
"The Night Max Wore His Wolf Suit", 11X17 print, $20
And a few more of my favorites:
Head over to Justin's site, Imps and Monsters, to see lots, LOTS more.
Here's a few new conventions sketches from Sara Richard that I'd LOVE to see available as prints:
Found on Sara's Facebook page.
In the meantime, I'll just have to hope to find her at a convention sometime! (Check her site for a few prints that ARE available, though.)
For those of you planning a Star Wars nursery:
"Beware, the Darth Star" 8x8 print, $16 by Muddybeats (plus lots of other sizes available)
The Dark Side just got a whole lot cuter!
There's also a companion print:
"Disappointment" 8X8 print, $16
Of course, seeing as much fantastic art as I do can be pretty hazardous to your bank account. Here's my most recent splurge: a 3D "Peeking Monster" named Minch:
Lyla Warren has several different styles of monsters to choose from, and they're all made to order. I haven't gotten mine yet, but I can't wait to add this little guy to my office walls! (Just as soon as I find some room. Yeeeeah... Good thing he's small!)
Lyla also sculpts some completely endearing "Tree Spirits"
Tree Spirit Series: Snip, $125
Kinda reminds me of some of the creatures from Fantasia - like she's watching all the centaurs frolic in a nearby field. Heh.
Oh, and Lyla recently posted this work-in-progress (dubbed "pinecone head") over on her Tumblr. I can't wait to see it painted!
Just lookit dat face!
And while we're talking 3D art, Gretchen K. found one of the most epic art dolls I have ever seen: the Labyrinth Cannonball Goblin!
About $192 at etsy shop The Further Shore, made to order.
THIS IS SO COOL.
For comparison, here's a screen shot from the movie of the goblins in questions (note the shelf in the background):
Next up, you may have gathered by now that I like robots. [smirk] So naturally I'm crushing on this fella:
I love the fine art style, too; you don't see traditional paintings featuring robots too often!
"The Mystery of Flight"
Again, head over to Matt's site if you'd like either of those as prints!
Here's something pretty darn cool: Rachel B. (aka Little Girl Spock's mom) recently commissioned a set of portraits of herself and her guy Wade in all their steampunk Star Trek finery - and the results are simply gorgeous:
Phantoms Siren, who specializes in the nouveau style, and she really captured every detail of their costumes. Plus I am in LOVE with the Enterprise silhouette in the background! (Bet you didn't even notice that at first, huh?)
Here's a photo of Rachel and Wade (with me) for comparison:
See what I mean? Vyctoria captured them to PERFECTION.[Update: Vyctoria just let me know she can't take any more commissions right now. Sorry, guys! Maybe check back with her site later?]
It looks like she's open for commissions right now, too, so head over to her site if you're interested in getting your own!
And finally, just when you think you've seen the Disney princesses drawn in every conceivable art style, someone goes and draws them ala Moulin Rouge:
"Fabulous, Harry, I love the feathers."
By illustrator Madhanz, who appears to just have a tumblr blog.
(Let me know if you guys find another site for him/her, though!)
I admit it: I'd love to see a cosplay group tackle these. So pretty!
K, that's all for this month!
UPDATE: The give-away has ended, and the winner is Rachel Brown! Congrats, Rachel, and please e-mail me your mailing address!
