Rabbit and Stag Raptors

20150409_123829 20150409_123807I’m really pleased with these two pieces and want to explore this theme more; combining terrifying dinosaurs with ‘gentle’ animal heads, such as the deer and rabbit. The hybrids work well, and look convincing enough, with just the right amount of absurdity. I think it is interesting how if your eye is drawn to the head first, the creature looks quite harmless and gentle, but as you take in the body of the velociraptor you realise that a creature like this would actually be very dangerous and frightening, in real life.
