Harpy by EvanCampbell Harpy by EvanCampbell
Oil based clay sculpture (Roma Plastilina) on a wire armature.
I cut thin sheet metal shapes for the wings to hold the form.

Daily Deviation

Given 2008-11-28
Few people can boast a large list of work with both puppets and prosthetics in a number of different films and Television shows, but when you look at works such as Harpy by *EvanCampbell it is not hard to see why he can make such a claim, the face, wing membranes, the veins and bulging tendons, even the texture on the skin are all flawless in their construction.

Hey, this is friggin awesome!!
Why don't you cast these and sell them? This would make one of the best resin kits I've ever seen!! I totally wish I could have one, I love this sculpture.

A wonderfully imaginative piece, Evan and it's engaging to think of a life/food cycle apart from what we're used to. The prey looks nearly as dangerous as the Harpy herself. :)

An instant fave for me! I need some Harpy ideas for a painting. :)

It's almost ridiculously convincing.
I had a dream last night with beasts like this one in it. They laid tiny eggs, and prickly little hedgehogs hatched and killed everyone.
My shrink says I'm completely abnormal. He'd probably faint if he ever saw you.

The expression and the folds of the body are more than amazing. I have no idea how you can get that many shapes and varieties out of a hunk of stone, or metal, or whatever else you would use.

Dang, this completely stunned me, even from the small thumbnail, I just can't believe how a piece of clay can be turned into such a lifelike artwork.

I'm still kind of speechless. XD


Amazing work, truly. <3

Har, it's not a problem, XD

In fact, I forgot my username to the DA, because I haven't logged out in such a long time, that I wasn't able to log in, so I guess that it's near perfect timing. :D

Also, I always take the time to comment such a work of art.
