    Great paint job, I especially like the fungi and the bare wood on top and the front where the bark is missing, looks very realistic. I was at the zoo recently and saw a tree stump in an enclosure and my first thought was stump tortoise.

    philofmars: Yeah, that was a downside to my earlier sculptures. My first few wound up using whatever bits of wood I had around, ugly or not. Mostly I just wanted to practice/get good at sculpting, wasn't as concerned with the base. Didn't take me long to start getting those beveled wooden plaques when I realized an unattractive base can really take away from an otherwise good sculpture...

    MadMcGlory: Thanks! You should try to tackle a high-detail sculpture sometime, it can be tedious but is really quite rewarding.

    Mah`Crub: I guess I didn't post any WIP shots of the top of the stump. Didn't want to neglect any detail on here. (Good reference really makes a world of difference!)

    Deon: Perhaps some outdoor pictures in the garden would be in order ;D If my yard ever dries out that is!

    JoshS: Cool! Nice to know my critters can stick in a person's head like that.

    enensis: Thanks much!

    As I'd mentioned awhile ago, I was going to re-sculpt my Lovecraft-themed chess set. I was displeased with a lot of aspects of the first one, most prominently the sloppy-looking square-ish bases, but I felt some of the designs (especially the shoggoth and the deep one) were a bit weak as well.

    So here's the new one. I kept them a little simpler in terms of surface detail, and I used proper little wooden round things as bases. They're all roughly 2.5-3 inches tall. Molding will commence as soon as I clean them up a bit. I will also be sculpting a custom chess board to go with it.

    Thanks much, guys! Glad you're digging it.

    I'm molding it right now, in fact, though I might end up needing to order more silicone to get it all finished...

    I disappeared for awhile.

    In fact, my entire workspace has been taken over by an army of Cthulhu and kin. So...many...resin casts...BUT, I have finally cleaned up and primed the first lot of them and have commenced painting. I've also done a couple more mini Cthulhu idols, playing on different concepts and ideas.

    From the beginning:
    OH LORD SO MANY OF THEM AAAAAGH!
    Mini Cthulhu idol with an ammonite for a head, about 3 inches tall
    Mini Cthulhu idol based on a squid, about 2.5
    Cute-thulhu!
    Some test paints
    Large ammonite-headed Cthulhu idol WIP. Lots of squickly.
