At some urging in response to @TheMistressT’s gorgeous miniature diorama paying tribute to The Trials of Solomon Parker (The Trials of Solomon Parker Fan Art Diorama - NSFW (Adult themes and imagery)), I posted this.
This is the fan art I created in homage to the book @TheMistressT’s honey wrote: Dr. Potter’s Medicine Show. This is my version of Dr. Hedwith’s lab.
The completed project:
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
victim 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
good 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 ridiculously pleased 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.
And the end credits:
Apparently it also takes a village to make a miniature diorama, so special thanks to @Magpie for her contributions to the cause, and for lots of crafty support from @TheMistressT, @gozer, @Chr1stchan, and the rest of the Nerd Games crew!
