Evgeny Hontor is a master at bringing your dreams to reality. He uses velvet clay to bring to life mythical creatures like dragons and some not so mythical creatures like whales and foxes. Basically he creates amazing fantasy animals we think are crazy cool.

His sculptures are incredibly intricate and detailed. Evgeny has 34,000 followers on Etsy, thanks to his undeniable talent.

When asked what made him decide to sculpt these fantasy animals he said “It is beautiful. It is the creation of the worlds. You can get carried away and explore new opportunities. It is a philosophy of life – to create. For me it is.”
