lullaby for a werehyena by rimorob lullaby for a werehyena by rimorob
A man made monster dreams of something more.

So this is what I was inspired to do for the Splice contest. I had originally wanted to splice more animals in, but anything I tried to add besides human and hyena just didn't feel right. Anyway, I had a lot of fun creating it and a lot of fun looking at the other contest submissions.

I'm been excited for Splice ever since those first shots of Dren came out a year or so ago. I love Vincenzo Natali's other films Cube and Elevated. And I love that he has David Hewlett play a role in everything he makes.

Very nicely done! Emotive, touching--far more touching, anyway, than anything with a hyena's DNA should be. Bravo! Favorited!

aww, is he friendly? I'd love to give him drawing lessons and maybe even teach him to communicate verbally. Beautiful work!

awww....cuuuuuuuuuute. I wish you the very best of luck in the splice contest, I think the proportions and shading on this are wonderful and the character, on a whole, is very creative! You can see the beauty of him, and even see his human side behind his eyes!

If I ever wondered what a werehyena would look like, your evocative work answered that question. A rather attractive creature though if it has the habits of a hyena, a very dangerous one.

Awww, it looks so sad but the picture and the creature are really well done. :)
I also like that even though it looks like it is smiling, it doesn't seem to be smiling on the inside.

yeah, hyenas' mouths make them look like they're smiling, hence "laughing hyena". I'm glad that, despite this, the picture still gives off a sad feeling. :)
