My most recent mask project. At least it started as a mask, it somehow ended up being a whole head.
Made this because I didn't want to be walking around RMFC next month looking like a douche with just a tail or something, and since I'm not a fursuiter either the logical thing was to do what I do anyway and make some kind of mask. And since skulls are my thing, this happened.
It was going to be a deer or dog skull initially because those are mostly what I have on hand for reference. But it morphed into a somewhat stylized bird skull instead because pretty much nobody does birds whereas everyone and their cousin does dogs and wolves. That and I didn't want to look like I was trying to copy Breynz (this amazing suit [link]), because I'm not a loser and that was never the intention.
The visibility inside it is quite good, the nostrils are breathable so you don't suffocate inside and the back opens and closes with hidden snaps. .....
Hey I am a third year animator in London currently producing my major film. I was wondering if I could get permission to 'use' your mask as inspiration for one of my deadlier characters. It is beautiful and creepy and would be absolutely perfect for him. This is a link to my showreel with short clips of previous work if you're interested: vimeo.com/84610820
SHWEET! I'm trying to make it back to RMFC in 2013, but I'm not sure I'll have the money. Might have to drive this time, so we won't have to pay for shipping and plane tickets. You wouldn't happen to go to FC, would ya?
Perhaps you could take a train or a bus since that's cheaper than flying? I took a greyhound from Grand Junction to Denver and back and it was only $100 for the round trip, it sucked because it was such a long drive but it was affordable. Amtrak is even cheaper if you can get the tickets early enough (like four or five months in advance) so that's what I'll do in 2013.
Ffffff I want so badly to go to FC since some of my friends will be there but I won't be able to do it unfortunately :[
really cool I have to think about it, because I'm making costumes myself too. And I like alot of things, so I have a list with about 10 costumes already ^^" I know I can't afford making them all, so I have to choose. But this just looks SO damn cool, I am putting it on the list. It might be I'm not choosing it. But if I do you'll hear from me ^^
Many thanks! I do plan on taking commissions for these, I'm doing a set of three for me and some friends so then I'll have more examples and open commissions on here as well as furaffinity and maybe furbuy :3
I'll be on the lookout for your table if you end up dealing and lol I almost bought one of your prints in the art show this year but ran out of dough on the last day, I'll probably end up getting something next time.
I should be easy to spot, just look for the obnoxious hyena. ;D As far as prints go, I always offer them, so you can contact me for one at any time. They usually only sell at shows, but I do offer them year 'round. :>
