Hybrid Creatures







Last week I was playing with the possibilities of creating hybrid creatures using using plastic human figures and transplanting animal heads onto the human bodies. I found that I needed to find a plastic animal and a plastic human figure that corresponded together in scale for the trick to work. I had great fun beheading the figures with my band saw, carving the animal heads with my dremel to match the human figure's neck, attaching head and body, and refinishing the new hybrid creature to look like an antique.
