From Dark Heresy - Blood of Martyrs
This is and will forever continue to be ny favorite art of sisters of battle.
"The party don’t start till I walk in…"
This is the picture which probably best represents the Imperium of Man, in my eyes.
Just look at the Gothic architecture, the smog, the futuristic technology combined with the archaic, the religious symbolism and the “halo” around the Battle Sister… the sheer brutal majesty of the scene is staggering.
Dense Wire Tree Sculptures by Clive Maddison
Using nothing but wire, sculptor Clive Madison creates tangled trees that grow from wooden bases into dense clusters of leaves and branches. Each piece is made by hand without glue or solder, using single strands of wire that start at the base and terminate at the top. You can see many more pieces on his website, and several are available through Lee Champman Gallery.
“What are these, and why do they jingle?” Adora Belle said, holding up a couple of strange devices.
“How should I know?”
“You’re a man.”
“Well, yes. And? I mean, I don’t go in for this stuff.”
“You know, I think it’s like horseradish,” said Adora Belle thoughtfully.
“Like…well, horseradish is good in a beef sandwich, so you have some. But one day a spoonful just doesn’t cut the mustard—”
“As it were,” said Moist, fascinated.
“—and so you have two, and soon it’s three, and eventually there’s more horseradish than beef, and then one day you realize the beef fell out and you didn’t notice.”
“I don’t think that is the metaphor you’re looking for,” said Moist, “because I have known you to make yourself a horseradish sandwich.”
“All right, but it’s still a good one,” said Adora Belle. She reached down and picked up something from the floor.
“Your keys, I think. What they were doing in there we shall never know, with any luck.”
Moist took them. The ring was heavy with keys of all sizes.
“And what shall we do with all this stuff?” Adora Belle kicked the heap again. It quivered, and somewhere inside something squeaked.
“Put it back in the cupboard?” Moist suggested uncertainly. The pile of passionless frippery had a brooding, alien look, like some sea monster of the abyss that had been dragged unceremoniously from its native darkness into the light of the sun.
“I don’t think I could face it,” said Adora Belle. “Let’s just leave the door open and let it crawl back by itself. Hey!” This was to Mr. Fusspot, who’d trotted smartly out of the room with something in his mouth.
“Tell me that was just an old rubber bone,” she said. “Please?”
“No-oh,” said Moist, shaking his head. “I think that would definitely be the wrong description. I think it was…was…it was not an old rubber bone, is what it was.”
‘Scream/ Homo Homini Lupus’, 2012, watercolor, gouache 7 sumi on paper
By A. J. Frena
So while at Anime Expo ‘12, I saw a really cool and well done Pyramid Head cosplay from Silent Hill. I went over to take a photo and next thing I know, the person removes the helmet and it turns out she is a woman (not something I was expecting).
With her eyes, hair, makeup, giant sword, and cold stare, I was actually more scared of her without the giant Pyramid helmet on.
Seriously, an amazing cosplay job all around.
