This is what happened when someone mix human DNA with lab rabbit DNA. Sure he eats his vegetables but there is a human and animal soul is in this creature with feelings and pain. Do scientists care about that ?
This is really great. Contrary to everyone else's thoughts, this thing is creepy as hell. I can't see how anyone would want to snuggle with that. It looks like it's about to eat your face off. Sketchy.
Congratulations on being a Splice "Create A Creature" contest semi-finalist! The director of Splice, Vincenzo Natali, had this to say about your entry: "I love this character. I have instant sympathy for him. And I like the mystery of what the three strokes might represent… years of imprisonment? The number of experiments he has endured? A simple expression of sentient intelligence? The monochrome palette is very austere and fitting."
Some thing about this piece is just really striking.
I noticed the pose and setting first in the thumb of the picture and was drawn in by that. The way he's sitting and tucked into a corner like that kind of makes me think of dead quiet, the smell of hospitals, and a feeling of hopelessness. The muted, almost grimy, grays and whites along with the soft strokes really reinforce that to me. The over all creature design is just fantastic. I love the feet and shapre of the torso. The ears are spectacular in the way they're not just rabbit ears sticking out the side of his head.
The best two things about it would be, for me, the subtle placement and movement of his arms, the way he's kind of drawing on the floor. But the most astounding and gorgeous part of this? The eyes. Not just the way they're set in the face or how they compliment the mouth and head shape but...just the small tilt and sheer rawness of the look he's giving. Like he really is looking out at you.
