This image is a combination of my digital photography and creatures that I designed and rendered in ZBrush. The final image depicts an imaginary struggle between the Starclops and it's prey. Artist Statement: The Starclops is a perfect consumer and desperate to sate its crude appetite. However, its discerning palate only craves what will perfectly fit through the gaping maw in its head. Wandering the waste, this lanky oaf quickly shifts its swollen gaze across the horizon, searching for stars. A rare and extremely vulnerable race, starkind has only ever sought a peaceful co-existence with the Starclops, yet remain in constant retreat of its threat. Seen here is a struggle that occurs all too often, yet this particular incident is different. While some will instantly despair in times of crisis, pictured is the momentous occasion when a product stood up to the consumer, and the seed of rebellion was planted in others to follow its example. www.cliftonharveyart.com Read Less
