Fantastic Happenings at Darkest Raven Designs on YouTube!!!

As you all may, or may not, know I am a HUGE fan of Chantal and her YouTube channel, Darkest Ravens Designs. She is an AMAZING artist with a lot of wonderful interests including Harry Potter, Poe and Tim Burton – to name a few. She recently made two amazing builds I’d like to share with you today.

She and Sarah from Scribble Fix went to their local hardware store(they both live in Australia and have the same chain hardware store where they live), and they both bought the same box. This box looks like a book so naturally, they collaborated on decorating their boxes. You can find Sarah’s build here.

Chantal decided to decorate her box using inspiration from a video game from American McGee which features Alice and her friends from Wonderland. It’s a dark game full of gorgeous artwork and new looks for all of the characters, Alice included. As a Patreon supporter, I am able to get backstage peeks at the build, and I am in awe of her talent!! Click on the video below to see her awesome build!

Chantal has been doing a series of matchbook miniature dioramas based on Harry Potter including shops from Diagon Alley. She has done 14 I believe, putting out one every month. This month, however, she’s doing something very different. Because this month has 5 Fridays in it, she is creating Dumbledore’s office in 1/12 scale and releasing one video a week the entire month. Her first video features Fawkes in both adult and baby form!!

If you watch these videos, PLEASE, comment at the very least!! Chantal responds to practically all comments that are left, and she really appreciates the feedback. You don’t have to Like/Dislike or Subscribe, but they are nice as well.

Check out Fawkes and the beginning of Dumbledore’s office below:

As a member of Chantal’s Conspiracy(aka family) of Ravens, I am blessed with the ability to talk to Chantal and other Ravens on her Discord channel. She is a very wonderful and down to earth person I’d love to meet in person one day. By becoming a Patreon supporter of hers, you will be able to talk to Chantal, me and others in the Conspiracy.

I just love saying that word! Conspiracy! 😀

See you on the flipside and don’t forget your towel and sonic screwdriver!!!

YouTube Tuesday: Abandoned Miniatures

This channel has only been around a few months and only has 6 videos so far. However, those videos are amazingly creepy and very good!! Check out the video below to see what I mean:

I don’t know the name of the man who does these videos as he doesn’t say. He does say he’s an urban explorer and photographer who has turned to creating dioramas based on pictures he’s taken.

I think he’s amazing, and I’ve already subscribed to his channel in the hopes he’ll keep going with his builds. He has some great techniques for making his creepy creations as well.

I highly recommend checking out at least one of his videos – the realism is incredible!!

YouTube Tuesday: Real Terrain Hobbies

Neil is the man behind this channel, and he does some AMAZING work!! Just check out this awe inspiring tabletop diorama he made, with some help from a miniaturist!

You can see more of his work by following the rabbit hole from the above link or, you can check out all his playlists here:

I really love watching Neil work, and he is a very good teacher. He’s begun doing ASMR videos and only speaking when he’s teaching just do you get a better idea of the environment he works in. He does have some great teaching videos especially the one where he shows you how to make realistic looking water with waves and everything!!

Don’t take my word for it though, check him out for yourself!
