i can haz tentacles?

More seriously, I'm an artist trying to make a living at it. Sort of succeeding. I'm inspired a lot by the ocean, sea creatures (especially those with tentacles), Cthulhu Mythos, science, and general geekiness.

Embrace of the Deep by Noadi
Embrace of the Deep
A tentacle tightly grips a human heart. The last remnant of the sea's latest victim.

This 6.5 inches tall hollow cast resin painted in a faux bronze finish. The original was sculpted from Chavant NSP Medium. I made the mold with Smooth-On's brush on mold kit (which is a great kit if you want to do a brush on mold, Rebound 25 is a great silicone). Each one is hand rotocast using Smooth Cast 300 which is a trickier process than I expected but once you get the hang of it it's pretty cool.

Available on Etsy and also as unpainted
Final 5 hours for the Lady of Innsmouth sculpture on Kickstarter
Last week for my Kickstarter project. If you are interested in the Lady of Innsmouth please back the project.
Wooo! So it's been a busy week and a bit. My kickstarter for the Lady of Innsmouth is fully funded!
My Kickstarter project for the Lady of Innsmouth sculpture is now live. Go check it out…
Been a while but I just submitted a new sculpture. If you like her I'm going to be launching a Kickstarter soon to fund having her cast, both in regular resin that you can custom paint and in cold cast bronze. Keep checking back, I'm aiming for sometime in the first half of June.
Lady of Innsmouth by Noadi
Lady of Innsmouth
After over a year of work off and on I'm finally finished what is certainly my favorite sculpture I've done. She's sculpted mostly in a 50/50 mix of super sculpey and super sculpey firm with a little bit of epoxy putty here and there. She's 8 1/2 inches tall.

As the title suggests she's loosely inspired by H.P. Lovecraft's work though none of the Innsmouth folk were described as being beautiful or having tentacles for hair.

I'm going to be launching a Kickstarter to have her cast in both regular white resin and cold cast bronze resin. Keep an eye out here or on my facebook page If you want more information on what I plan to do with the kickstarter check out the site I set up here

UPDATE: The Kickstarter is now live!…
Sanity Check Necklaces - Tentacle Wrapped D20s by Noadi
Sanity Check Necklaces - Tentacle Wrapped D20s
I've been wanting to do something gaming based for a while now. I've been playing tabletop RPGs since highschool (so about 15 years now). Considering my love for all things tentacles and Cthulhu this was really the obvious direction to go. Thankfully D20s do not melt at the oven temperatures needed to cure polymer clay, that would not have been a fun ending to this project. I've got a pretty wide variety of tentacle and die colors and they're all hung on black silicone cords.

The name is of course a reference to the Call of Cthulhu RPG.

These are of course available in my Etsy shop

You're probably better off watching me on Etsy, I don't update here on dA as often as I should.
Eddie-chan Featured By Owner Sep 7, 2011
I do. But it's still nice to see your art in more places. XD
