By the pricking of my thumbs...


By the pricking of my thumbs, something wicked this way comes.

I gave more than a nod to Shakespeare's Macbeth, with a cauldron and cutting his thumb for the blood, crown on the spirit for King Macbeth, and the eyes and other fun things in the cauldron. In the play, the three witches summon a spirit, and so our dapper warlock is summoning a spirit for evil purposes...hinted at by the cards the spirit is dealing out. hmmm, I seem to have cut the close up of the cards...look closely if you can. It should make you laugh.

Also a nod to the Ray Bradbury story and the movie based on the story as well. Here's my version of Mr. Dark, and the strange creatures of his carnival hinted at in the cauldron and spirit. In the story, Mr. Dark grants wishes, and he is granting a certain wish in this diorama - again hinted at in the cards.

Please note the crown is my own sculpt, as is Mr. Dark's hand with the knife. Vest is freehand. Cauldron is Reaper, I believe. Also make sure to catch the glow effect along the seam of the base itself.
