About My Design

I really enjoyed the gothic style horses that pull the carriages in the Harry Potter series, so I decided to a bit of a twist on that. I really enjoy the idea of giving life and death to imaginary beasts, so here I gave a griffon a skeleton. I really enjoy the work of Damien Hurst, with his de-articulation of animals and humans, and I have learned to appreciate the inner, grotesque workings of every living thing. So here, I am playing with seeing what's under the skin. I just thought seeing a tiny, glow-in-the-dark skeleton across the room would be fun ;)

Foxy-art:  I've read every comment you've made on every design in this contest... and all I have to say is... if you can't say something nice, get over it.  Being rude and not giving constructive critiques is not helpful to any artist.

Because everyone loves a gryphon, which means it can be submitted anywhere.

Now i am confused, is it a cow? or a dead bird?, or is it a dead bird cow?, anyway it is a cool concept, it would be really cool if it gets made, that the material they use for it its a transparent type of resin and you can actually see the skeleton of the bird inside not just painted on the outside, but don't know if it will cost more to make it that way.

This would be awesome as a toy, though I imagine it'd be a bit of a technical challenge to make it.
WaterLotl commented on 17th Jun 2010 (Report Spam)
This is a really adorable design. I would love to see this made and i would definitely buy one. Especially love his smug little grin.

I will love to see it in clear plastic ! :3 Awesome design!
samotage commented on 16th Jun 2010 (Report Spam)
Love this! I've definitely seen the solid-object-submerged-in-clear effect before, but the question is, can PT do that? Another idea is to make the skeleton, and then the clear "skin" would be a two piece hollow case that snaps around it.
Kammylee commented on 16th Jun 2010 (Report Spam)

i'm hoping production won't be too difficult... I would think it would just be a 2 piece production, first the skeleton and then submerging it in a mold to fill the resin.  I'm no toy professional, but I'm hoping it wouldn't be too difficult.

Great concept but I'm concerned about production/cost!
SuziDragonlady commented on 15th Jun 2010 (Report Spam)
It looks really cool, I think it would be awesome as a figure but it might be tricky to be produced. 5

Cool idea. I like how the cute character design actually keeps it from looking creepy.
SilverFox commented on 11th Jun 2010 (Report Spam)
This is awesome, nice design!
Mallard commented on 11th Jun 2010 (Report Spam)
Not only is the glow in the dark skeleton an excellent idea, but I just love this guy's design! The grin he has is priceless :P
Kimidei commented on 10th Jun 2010 (Report Spam)
Amazing, I love it!
Jazzer commented on 10th Jun 2010 (Report Spam)
Day-um this little guy is sweet! This is something I can really picture in resin.
Dmannion commented on 10th Jun 2010 (Report Spam)
This is a fantastic design! I would love to buy it as both a toy and a tshirt.
Polysoup commented on 10th Jun 2010 (Report Spam)

I love how you simplified the skeleton, but I'm not sure how it fits the theme. I was expecting a lot more "retellings" of common storybook characters. Doesn't seem like that has happened with most of the designs. But as I said at the beginning, I do love this design!

I would love to own this as a toy, especially if the clear resin were slightly squishy! <3

AMAZING!!!!!
Bonkat commented on 9th Jun 2010 (Report Spam)
So cute Kammy!
Corvid337 commented on 9th Jun 2010 (Report Spam)

really nice idea. I really like the stylization of the bones, especially the little feet.

Moose15 commented on 9th Jun 2010 (Report Spam)
Interesting idea! I like it a lot!
Kammylee commented on 9th Jun 2010 (Report Spam)

Thanks everyone!  When I came up this design I was really excited.  I'm working on a series of them right now :)

Slushice commented on 9th Jun 2010 (Report Spam)
If the idea could be realized, it would be epic ! The only thing I would point out, is that I could desire a little more color
Death-Taffy commented on 8th Jun 2010 (Report Spam)

I want this. Very Much.

Bonnyjohn commented on 8th Jun 2010 (Report Spam)
This is great, love the concept and would love to see it realized!
Pyridene commented on 8th Jun 2010 (Report Spam)
This would be an interesting figure to see.
GeneticFailure commented on 8th Jun 2010 (Report Spam)

Hah! Dude, that's really cool! 8D Neat idea. c:

I love it!!!
aardvark-scouts commented on 8th Jun 2010 (Report Spam)

I don't really care for the glow-in-the dark skeleton. It seems a bit cliche and obvious (the white would look cool as is).

I do know I want this though! It's got some nice simple shapes that really let the skeleton and charm shine through. I hope it wins! I think it's your best design so far.

Loliner commented on 8th Jun 2010 (Report Spam)

Love the idea behind this. So unique! I really like it's expression :)

Elfenn commented on 8th Jun 2010 (Report Spam)

I just LOVE this !
