    Thank you both very much! I really appreciate your compliments!

    This fossil, trapped in a piece of amber, has been dated to the Oligocene era, and was found on the shore of Gotland in 1786. It is the only known specimen of the now extinct nordic fairy, and can be viewed as a part of the entomological exhibition at the Swedish Museum of Natural History in Stockholm.

    Just a quick and silly idea.

    Very Cool! I second that nomination! Very detailed creation!

    Captured in February 1835 by Sicilian fishermen, the specimen was bought by the recently opened Gothenburg Museum of Natural History, where she entertained visitors with what was described as beautiful songs (thought to be some sort of echolocation). After reaching adulthood in the autumn of 1848 the specimen was linked to the disappearance of two visitors and a custodian, when a piece of a human femur was found in her aquarium. Why the missing men would have entered the tank is unknown, as the glass reached too high for them to simply have been grabbed.
    After these incidents the specimen was sold to an anonymous private collector. Her current whereabouts are not known.

    Seriously, keep your freaking hands of the glass…

    Not silly at all. I think it is quite imaginative.
    Are you from Sweden? Just asking to see how international this forum is.

    That fossilised fairy is brilliant! And a great idea, too.

    Thank you all so much! I’ve never felt so welcome to any forum before! Laugh

    Little known fact: Nordic fairies lacked feet, they spent all their lives flying. That’s why there are so few fossils of them. They all died in the air.
    Nah, I just forgot them *facepalm*

    And yes, I’m Swedish, thank you for asking Wink

    December 18 1923. Norwegian tanner Sylfest Bodevik goes missing while hiking through the forests of Lardal. His tent is found by a search party two days later, but the the man himself is never discovered. A photograph found in Bodevik’s camera, taken a few weeks before the incident, near the location of his final camp site, appears to be one of the few remaining pictures of a Norwegian huldra.
    Why Bodevik would return to the location after spotting the creature is unclear.
    The photograph is held by the Norwegian National Archives, but the copy seen below is exhibited at the Natural History Museum at the University of Oslo.

    Firefox died on me while I was in the process of adding the final detailing on this one, and before I thought of saving the text http://www.heromachine.com/wp-content/legacy/forum-smileys/sf-yell.gif
    So her tail kind of melts in to the background, and I’m not sure about her eyes… Still, I guess she looks okay.
    Oh, well. You live and learn. I’m going with Chrome from now on.

    The fossilized fairy is nifty.

    I also like Huldra! Wildly creative to do a picture like that. I would love to see your original intentions for the work, but I really like this one! :)

    It’s really cool to do a picture in the style of an old photograph. Very good job!

    Thank you all! http://www.heromachine.com/wp-content/legacy/forum-smileys/sf-smile.gif

    It has been suggested that the decrease in sightings of tomtar is directly related to the increase of gardens gnomes.

    Another silly idea. Trying to create the tackiest garden gnome in existance was really funny, though.

    Oh, and sorry if these last pictures don’t really make any sense. I’ve been really in to Scandinavian folklore lately.

    The fairy fossil again, along with a sketch of what it might have looked like at the moment of its death.

    Thank you, Scatman!

    As I sat by my desk earlier today, trying my hardest not to do any actual work, the thought struck me how hellish a blaze in a dwarven hold would be. I spent a few hours brainstorming ideas for how a dwarven firefighter would be equiped, and produced this guy when I got home. It was a fun little project, and I don’t think I’ve put this much thought in to any other design.

    And, then I made this. Cos I’m the kind of person who builds sandcastles just to throw rocks at them.
