Incredibly Lifelike 3D Paper Animal Sculptures

These amazing masks and sculptures look like they are made out of real fur. In fact, they are actually paper sculptures by Brooklyn-based artist Jos Suris IV. The awesome 3D illustrator creates these detailed little creatures out of various papers, styrofoam, wireform, and paperclay. Through layers of paper and shades of color, Suris produces extremely detailed shapes with incredible texture that gives each form a lifelike presence.

The wide range of final products includes some pieces that are fully sculpted creatures, others that are simple masks, and still others that are bodiless heads which Suris mounts and hangs on display just like a taxidermist might. For Suris, it seems that anything and everything sparks the creative process, including internet videos, cartoons, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Pokmon‘s Eevee, friends’ plays, and stories that the artist hears in everyday life. His inspiration is so broad, one can’t help but eagerly await the next imaginative concept.
