My husband is so excited about getting to paint this exactly how he wants it that he went out and bought an airbrushing kit. Perfect, exactly the kind of kid in a candy store reaction I was hoping for! It's such a cool looking piece. Massive bonus points to the seller for getting the kit to us in time for Xmas! I knew I was ordering it uncomfortably late and had accepted the fact that I probably wouldn't get it in time, but they made it happen and I was so impressed! Thank you so much.

About

Ravendark Creations is a collaboration between two artists with similar fantastic vision.

Several years ago on a fall afternoon, Arend was out on a peaceful walk through the woods with the Bandersnatch, when out of the thicket came a voice saying “What a lovely Bandersnatch.” What emerged from the woods was a creature of the wild, with thorns and sweetness in equal measure. The fair trollish maiden then wandered with Arend for a time, and finding they saw the world in much the same way, decided to walk together, instead of alone.

Arend creates monsters of all kinds, from frightening to cute. They are sculptural creatures he meets in the world and creatures of his own imagination, both taking inspiration from and giving inspiration to Lara. Lara, being a wild thing, dabbles in drawing, watercolor, oils, ceramics, jewelry making, and occasionally sculpting. Having grown up with fantasy, it is what colors and gives life to their work.
We offer:

One of a kind sculptures (OOAKs). Commissions welcome! If you have an idea and it needs some fine tuning, Lara can do concept sketches to flesh out your idea.

Monster/creature kits, assembled and painted or unassembled and unpainted. These come from castings of Arend’s original sculptures.

Original watercolors or drawings, commissions welcome!

Prints of Lara’s original watercolors and drawings.

And more!
