So, I have been working on this little lab for quite a while. TheMistressT's honey wrote a novel called Dr. Potter's Medicine Show
, many of you have heard about it. Well, I freaking loved it! And this is an homage to it. My very own fan art! And I'm ridiculously proud of it, so you'll have to put up with some "proud parent" pics. Sorry, not sorry.
Here's the finished product:
As you can see, as the project progressed, I moved things around...
Ok, so back to the completed lab. Let me show you around (she said with pride)!
Here's Dr. Hedwith's worktable. He's been making some notes in this alchemy book. There's a lantern for a little extra light, a scale for precise measurement of nasty bits, and a mortar and pestle for grinding said nasty bits. There's a handy syringe, waiting on just the right
patient, and a large bottle of green mystery stuff on the floor. I'm a big fan of the fancy clock on the wall and the esoteric hand, too.
Oops, one of Dr. Hedwith's patients who didn't make it. Like all good scientists, he's going to lop the head off and keep it for future study.
Ah. lots of juicy bits! A jar of eyes, and a jar of bones. (Ingredients for experiments, or souvenirs?) I wonder what he's got locked up in that little box that Mr. Skull is resting upon? Lots of potions and icky concoctions, and lots of books, too. Never let it be said that Dr. Hedwith is not a learned man! Candles, scissors, a test tube rack. The mouse who lives under the bookshelf has made an appearance for a photo op.
There's a bureau and an apothecary chest in the corner, just beneath an interesting alchemical chart. The
doctor is letting a little mail pile up. I wonder if any of it is from Lyman?
And, of course, this is where he keeps the "big guns":
Yes, I'm pretty tickled that the drawers open.
Another little shelf of potions and another interesting box, along with some more alchemical reference material.
And the reason for the lab in the first place - the dangerously addictive Chock-A-Saw Sagwa Tonic. Here's a case ready to be delivered to Dr. Potter.
On the outside of the side walls:
And the end credits (you made it through the whole thing, thank you)!
I made this just for me, and I am pretty excited about it!
Thanks for taking the time to check it out!
