New Majora's Mask Closeup by HylianJean New Majora's Mask Closeup by HylianJean
Here's the first painted casting from my new Majora's Mask mould. This took forever. .. For. ev. er.

All painted and blended by hand with a variety of brushes, most of them verrrrrry small.

However, I have established many of my processes now. Once I decide exactly what material is working best for the rest of the casts, they should go faster than this one did.

I hope.

Color, proportion, and shape choices were made in order to combine the official Nintendo image of the mask with its appearance in the game, leaning heavily toward the Nintendo art. Some concept art also shows the mask with curved horns, which I liked.

(Curious about the details? Check out the other progress photos in my gallery and scrapbook!)

:bulletred:Dimensions: 19x17 inches including horns
:bulletorange:Yes, I am selling these (please note me if you are serious about being added to the list to reserve one. Current wait is: A Long Time.)
:bulletgreen:Yes, they can be wearable (but they are intended for display so they're not the most comfortable things)
:bulletblue:Yes, they are expensive (current price is around $300 depending on features, plus shipping) - they are a ton of work to make

:bulletpurple:No, I don't sell unpainted ones, sorry :blushes:

SORRY EVERYBODY! I have way more requests for these than I can possibly handle right now, and haven't even had proper time to work on them this whole month, so I'm not taking any more names for a while. Check back in a few months please!


**Do not crop or in any way alter this image. If you post it elsewhere, please link back here and send me a note about it. Thank you!**



Edit: SO GRATEFUL for the DD! Wow, I've been overwhelmed all day by nice comments. It's really a boost, thank you all.

Thanks very much! It will probably be a long time before I have any available, since I think I need to do another new sculpt and mold to turn making masks into anything less than a six-month process. When I do, my Watchers will be the first to hear about it!

The official Nintendo art uses pretty bold colors and I tended toward those since textures sometimes looked kind of washed-out in N64 games. Thanks! :)

Compared to the sorta-faded colors it has in the original game, the bright ones you used make the mask look even more alien and creepy. Nice job!

Thank you! I would love to say I'll have a mask for you by then but I can't be sure. I perpetually have half a dozen pots on the stove and masks keep getting moved to the back burner. I appreciate the advance notice! It's motivating to me for sure!

I wish I could afford one. Or any Majoras mask replica for that matter, I don't understand why Nintindo didn't replicate these. Yours are absolutely amazing. But ill never be able to spend over a 100 on anything like this cause I just don't have the money. You did an outstanding job though!!!! :)
