The Mystical World Of Mushrooms Captured In Photos

Most people consider mushrooms to be the small, ugly cousins of the plant kingdom, but theirs is  surprisingly beautiful and wonderful world waiting to be explored. These beautiful mushrooms, captured by enthusiastic nature photographers, are a far cry from the ones you find in the woods or your local grocery store.

Most mushrooms, as we know them, are actually just the reproductive structure of the fungus they belong to – their fungal networks expand far further underground, and some fungi don’t even sprout the sort of mushrooms that we’re used to seeing. In fact, depending on your definition of “organism,” the largest living organism in the world is a fungus – there’s a honey mushroom colony in Oregon that occupies about 2,000 acres of land!

How awesome is this!?!?

Huge thanks to @emilysculpts for the incredible gift. It was an absolute pleasure working with you on your project. I know everyone will be blown away!

Alright guys!  Here is your first peek at the finished Toothless busts.  These photos were taken by Dane Stogner of the set I gifted him for helping me make these busts the very best they can be!  In case you missed it while I was working on the busts, Dane is the lead character animator for Toothless in HTTYD2.  He contacted me while I was working on these to give me pointers on keeping these in line with the character.  His advice was truly priceless.

I am also happy to announce that Dane kindly agreed to sign the bases of each of the 10 sets that I will be making available to the public!

I will be releasing the busts in a few waves, probably 2-3 sets at a time.  I already have 3 sets painted and ready to go.  I will be posting those 3 for sale along with detailed photos and information in the next few weeks.

Each set will come with a certificate of authenticity and a custom engraved brass plate with the title of the piece (The Faces of Toothless) along with the edition number (1 through 10 out of 10).

Keep watching  Thank you all for the support you’ve given me on this project and a huge thanks to Dane for all his help and guidance.
