Phantoms by EvanCampbell Phantoms by EvanCampbell
This was a prehistoric butterfly/moth sculpture I created for the 1998 film "Phantoms".
The movie was an adaptation of a Dean Koontz's book under the same name.

Looks like a cross between Mothra and Megaguirus which looks like Something Godzilla would fight.

read the book and also saw the movie. koonz is my fav horror/thriller writer, but the movies always disappoint, (except for the efx parts) i figure they just can't match up with storytelling from the book or the imagination the mind conjures up while reading them, oh well.

I immediately recognized this moth creature, this is very cool.

Sadly I havn't seen the movie, but the butterfly looks great! Sadly the photo quality isn't the best - i have the feeling i would miss some details because of that...

umm, so, umm.
God called, and there had been a mix up, aparently you got too much madskillz and raditude so there isn't enough for the rest of us.
But thats cool if you just kinda give me your adress and leave all of your original works where it's clearly visible it'll be fine.
Thats what he said...promise, word for word.

That thing scared me shitless, success on your behalf I'm sure.

You know I always wondered if the filmmakers didn't simply take this creature idea out of the videogame resident evil two which came out a few years before this movie.

But all this time I did know it was based off a novel so who knows who stole from who.
