So who else knew it was National Superhero Day? I found out a little while ago and scribbled up what some popular open source programs (or their mascots) might be as superheroes.

And in the spirit of open source, the original art file is available under a CC-BY-SA 4.0 license on !

It's been making its laps around the Blendersphere, but if you haven't already seen it, you should fix that problem and watch the latest open movie from the Blender Animation Studio, Spring.

And these hit the mail today! Steer horn liners on both. Elm burl and lapis lazuli on the large spiral bent one. Ash and red jasper on the traditional bend. Hopefully they enjoy wearing them as much as I enjoyed making them. Recorded the whole process, so videos coming soon.

More process videos are coming, but I'm the meantime here's a work on progress shot of the pair I've been working on. Been horn liner. Bent wood outer. Carved and ready for inlay.

Probably should've also mentioned that the video fits as since, well, it's cut using . :)

Some folks have asked me to share how I go about bending my rings (especially the horn ones). So I went and made some video. This is Part One.

Hrm... @chartier this was actually directed as a reply to you, but it didn't get set up as such. Doh.

@thaj Thanks. It's a kind of tricky material to work with, but I've made a few rings with it so far and I'm really liking it.

I haven't officially started selling the carved steer horn rings yet, but I'm sure it's coming soon. Usually I make rings out of bent wood (I occasionally carve those, too). Those rings are on my website ( and sold through my Etsy shop.
