Merry Christmas from Throne of Otherworld

Wishing you all a very merry Christmas, eat, drink, be merry, and have a wonderful time.

Technet Character Sketches by Chad Smith

On Sunday I posted some art by Chad Smith of Excalibur fighting Gatecrasher's Technet, art he'd done for the San Diego Comic-Con. Here's some character sketches he's done of Gatecrasher and her Technet. I love them, so, so good.








I don't know why, but when I look at Chad's interpretation of Thug, he looks like what you'd get if you meld Ant and Dec together... just saying.

Crimson Crusader (ClanDestine) Custom

Here's a photo of a custom figurine I finished today of a member of the Destine family, Crimson Crusader.

He measures a mere 90mm in height, and that makes it the third member of ClanDestine I've done so far, looking to do Argent next.





Check out my custom Blog called Metal Ink, for more photo's of Crimson Crusader, and other customs I've done. http://elvenbrit-metalink.blogspot.co.uk/

Rachel Summers (Hound Costume) by Ariel Padilla & Rain Beredo

I found this beautiful piece of art on deviantART of Rachel Summers in her Hound costume, as worn in the early days of Excalibur. Pencils are by Ariel Padilla, and colours are by Rain Beredo.

Both artists are from the Philippines, and it's worth checking out both of their art, because it's very impressive...
