Griffin by xtigermistressx Griffin by xtigermistressx
This is made ENTIRELY out of acrylics, aka, fake fingernails. They're unused pieces of plastic basically, so I'm not quite sure why so many have recoiled at the idea..

This is a really unique idea! I've never heard of anyone using fake fingernails to make a sculpture before (I've never actually heard anyone using fake fingernails period!), so even though the idea might be a little creepy to most, it still gives the sculpture a beautiful, feathery look that is really hard to do with clay. The only bad thing I have to say is the cord in the lower right corner looks a little out-of-place, and I think it'd be even more interesting if you took the picture at a different angle, showing off the face more. Otherwise, you did a great job, and I look forward to seeing more beautiful works like this!

Initially, it's imperative that I say that your artwork here is fairly fan-bloody-tastic. The concept you have executed is finely average. It is visible to me that you worked hard on this with your gratuitous range of powers. The shape of this art piece is decisevely exact for the effect that I sense you are struggling to encapsulate, but in hindsight this observation is likely pointless. But, I think that your implementation of foreground could of been a lot better as I contemplate that it wasn't able to compete with the brilliance seen in the whole of the piece. To finish I would like to reassure you that it has been a thrill to invest energy in this assessment for you and I think it will allow you to improve your creation.

Thanks! I'm going to try and make a replica to sell, but because it's so time consuming (it would probably take 15 hours), I haven't gotten around to it yet.

Very good use of waste material. And it is very good in itself.
