Medieval Manuscripts

MS20BXX-78vWe're kickin' it old-school on SGS today, with a lovely post on the British Library's Medieval Manuscripts Blog. The image to the right is from Royal MS 20 B XX. Click the image to see a larger version, or -- far better -- use the British Library MS Viewer to browse wonderful, high-res zoomable scans of the original.

Warning: All links above are more perilous Internet time-wasting rabbit-holes than Wikipedia and TVTropes combined.

Дракон

d3aa59c54ad861119104cdd14f27f6a3Moscow-based artist Cuarto has created Darkhorn: a brilliant posable dragon figure with ball joints. See his blog post talking about it (in the original Russian) or the same page machine-translated to English. (The image to the right and all images after the break are from that site.)

As you can imagine, they're not cheap and there's (at the time of this writing) a long waiting list. Nonetheless, there is an English-language order page where you can join the queue.

More images after the break. Read the rest of this entry »

Ice Dragon

ice-art-dragonThis ice dragon is from a work entitled "Hunting Dragons", by Steve Brice, Heather Brice, Steve Cox and Justin Cox. (I presume and hope that the title refers to the dragons in question hunting their prey.)

The sculpture won first place in the Realistic / Artists' Choice category in the 2013 World Ice Art Championship in Fairbanks, Alaska.  The photo is via The Chive, and is unfortunately uncredited. (If you have information about the photographer, please let me know and I'll add appropriate attribution.)

Another image available after the break.
