These sculptures are both beautiful and eerie at the same time. They’re the work of artist Ellen Jewett who blends plants and animals into sculptures. She calls her work “natural history surrealist sculpture” and it not only involves a blending of different aspects of nature, but a blending of materials. She strives to use locally-sourced materials combined with negative space to create her works of art.

These look like fluid forms but they’re actually static fibonacci sculptures created by John Edmark. By syncing the rate at which the sculptures spin to the shutter speed of the camera, it looks as thought they’re alive:

These are 3-D printed sculptures designed to animate when spun under a strobe light. The placement of the appendages is determined by the same method nature uses in pinecones and sunflowers. The rotation speed is synchronized to the strobe so that one flash occurs every time the sculpture turns 137.5º—the golden angle. If you count the number of spirals on any of these sculptures you will find that they are always Fibonacci numbers.

For this video, rather than using a strobe, the camera was set to a very short shutter speed (1/4000 sec) in order to freeze the spinning sculpture.

It’s absolutely mesmerizing and will have you hitting that play button over and over as you try to figure out just what is really in front of your eyes.

If a narwhal is magical good luck, and a unicorn is magical good luck, then just how much magical good luck do you get when you combine the two?

Such is the question that Los Angeles’s artistic couple Kozyndan set out to answer with this sculpture entitled “Rainbow Magic”.

Crafted in cooperation with Pretty In Plastic, this resin sculpture is a blue and green unicorn inside a clear narwhal with both sharing a single brightly colored horn. You can even buy one for your home if you’re willing to spend $1500. That’s really expensive, but we’re thinking you’re much more likely to hit the lotto if you own it.

This fantastically detailed sculpture of Doom II‘s final level was created by artist Jason Hite. He made it from old circuit boards, bits of action figures, and all sorts of random stuff. Now it’s going up for sale for $6K. Jason talked about the design process on his blog, saying:

Over the years, I have collected circuit boards from computers and odd devices. The panel on the right of the demon’s head was sitting in a cardboard box in the back of my YMCA getting rained on, before I “liberated” it. The guns are from the Quake action figures by ReSaurus Toys that came out back in 1998. At least they are accosted with Doom. I would have loved to make a BFG, and still might do so, but I ran out of time. I’m actually kind of surprised that no one has made one by now. The Doom Guy figure and zombie behind the Cyberdemon are slightly augmented from HorrorClix figures…and the dozen bullets are dummy .30 ammo that is epoxied them tightly into the piece.

It will be on display in Santa Monica, California at the Copro National Gallery where you’ll also be able to buy it if you’ve got the cash.

hulk 1

If you have access to scrap metal, why not give it a second life by turning it into art? That’s just what Old Steel Art in Thailand does, and they’ve created everything from Transformers to Thor to this amazing Hulk from leftover metal pieces. I can’t get over how detailed the Hulk sculpture is – there are folds in the fabric and you can see muscles and veins on his skin. He looks gigantic, and I can’t imagine how he’ll be moved when/if he’s sold. Maybe they can build a Helicarrier to transport him.

After seeing Griffon Ramsey in action, I’m fascinated with chainsaw art.

Ramsey created a sculpture of Groot using a variety of chainsaws and Easter Red Cedar along with her skills and plenty of imagination.

Then she went and filmed the work in progress so we could all see Groot come to life.

Check it out after the break.

You know, in your head, that you would be the most fantastic superhero to ever walk the planet if you had powers. The folks at You Kick Ass get that so they’ve launched a kickstarter for a line of custom superhero action figures that have your face. Each head is 3D printed to look just like the customer and then attached to one of several available bodies like Armored Man, Man on Fire, Kicking Girl, or Running Woman.

You even get to decide which powers you’ll wield and get a comic strip with your origin story. It’s already fully funded so supporting the campaign now will have you turned into a superhero when figures ship next month.

These lovely paper craft sculptures are all the work of Jodi Harvey-Brown who sells them on Etsy. She carefully creates each character or object from the pages of its book, sometimes using paper mache or wire to make sure they’re secure. Each is one-of-a-kind and requires up to a month to make but will be well worth the wait.

cthulhu cute monster

There are times when Cthulhu isn’t terrifying. It doesn’t happen often, but when it does, it’s usually because the monster is in some sort of toy form. This adorable sculpt by Cassia Harries isn’t exactly a toy, but it is a collectible figure! She sculpted it by hand, cast it from resin, and painted all the little touches. At just over three inches tall, he’s a tiny bite-sized piece of art. An army of these tiny Cthulhus will be on sale soon!

This incredibly realistic Predator face was carved by deviantArtist simondrawme. It took him over 90 hours to complete the project and it looks amazing! Can you just imagine the reaction of trick-or-treating kids if you left this sitting by the front door?
