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?

This is heart-breaking. I’m all for art, but this sculpture by artist Andrew Vickers was made by destroying $20,000 worth of comics. Here’s the official description of the piece from the Heroes: Ordinary Becomes Extraordinary exhibition at the s1 Artspace in Sheffield.

Stoneface Sculpture – Andrew Vickers will display a piece of his latest work, ‘The Paper Boy’, inspired by the artist’s fascination with the mystical and made from a rare collection of recycled comic books. His work embarks on a change from his usual media of natural stone, using metals and reclaimed stuffs, but revisits the familiar female form in the unveiling of a new sculpture ‘Earth’, and a reworking of ‘Naked’, a stone sculpture war memorial re-displayed on canvas in digital print form, alongside a number of more recognisable superhero facades, timelessly captured in stone.

What the artist didn’t know was that the collection of comics, which he found in a dumpster, included some very rare and collectible gems. He only found out when comic fan Steve Eyre saw the sculpture and recognized the value of some of the titles.

“First of all I thought ‘Fantastic’ as, visually, it is a beautiful thing, but then as I walked round it, certainly on the inside right leg, there was a cover of Avengers number one. I’ve got a copy of that, which was published in 1963, that is worth well over £10,000. Then I started looking and there are six comics on this that together would be worth, even in the condition you can see, £20,000.

Hear that? It’s the sound of collectors everywhere screaming, “No!” at the thought of those issues being glued to a bunch of chicken wire.

Although Cthulhu may not be real, the bones used in this sculpture are real animal bones. We’ve seen an amazing alien facehugger from Forgotten Boneyard but I think this combination of mink, raccoon and beaver bones may be even scarier.

spock sculpt 3

Some sculptors are exceedingly talented at creating busts that capture the likeness of the subject. Steve Scotts did it with a freakishly real Ellen Ripley sculpt, and Jordu Schell has done it with this Spock sculpture. It was made with silicone, hair, fabric, and carefully applied paint. He looks like he could start talking about logical things at any minute.

I really think all you need to read are the words “giant steampunk dragon” to know this is something you’re going to want, but my editor insists I write up a description anyway. This made-to-order sculpture by Kreatworks measures an astounding 10.8′ tall by 9′ long by 10′ wide and is constructed out of recycled metal and auto parts. This monster weighs in at over 880 pounds! The one in the pictures was sold, but he will custom make one just for you at the monster price of $11,500.

Looks like Batman should make some shark repellant spray out of snow.

Of all the creatures in Final Fantasy, Chocobos are the most adorable. I adore the little fluffy companions and that they are a constant in the game. A Chocobo fan commissioned artist Jenna Antonelli to sculpt one of the feathered animals, and the end result is extremely huggable (well, it would be if it wasn’t made from clay).

Look at more of Chocobo after the break.

These beautiful paper sculptures are the work of Jodi Harvey-Brown who uses the actual pages from books to form characters and even entire scenes from the stories on those pages. There are characters like Harry Potter, Hermione and Ron jumping out to cast spells, Alice with the Cheshire Cat and even the Millenium Falcon. She also has beautiful paper sculture wreaths, trees and ornaments and is open to taking custom orders.
