Splice: Bird of Prey by werecarrot Splice: Bird of Prey by werecarrot
My entry for the Splice Contest, is actually a splice between a Velociraptor and a human, thus the title 'bird of prey'.

A sad attempt at making it docile involved a lobotomy, and now the poor thing might just think it's found a friend in it's reflection.

Sculpted from scratch in Zbrush with Zspheres, background modeled in Maya, and lots and lots of painting post work in Photoshop. All visual elements were created by me.

I'm pretty sure dinosaurs are allowed unless I overlooked something, but either way I'm happy with it.

This is heartbreaking.

Beautiful work, though, especially the veins and the organs, and the look in his eyes.

I'm having ideas on how he/she looks like a friendly creature with his docile looks. The long, unusually formed arms makes him/her really neat looking. :)

the idea in itself is lovely. feel sorry for the creature for being locked away like that. I understood by first glimpse of the mirror that it is docile. should do some more with that creature in other works. I think he's/she's quite lovely.

I don't know about Splice, I have my reservations there. But this is ludicrously creepy. I think something about sterile, brightly lit places really gets to me more than anything. Augh.

This is amazing and oddly adorable~. This creature is so cute. Poor thing. I'd be it's friend =).
Though other then it's cuteness it's also very well painted. The vains and shadeing is amazing. Heck the whole darn thing is amazing. If I tried to write about all of it I'd run out of room. Great work~
