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.

New Majora's Mask Closeup by *HylianJean is a perfect reproduction! ( Suggested by cakecrumbs and Featured by Talty )

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!
Victoriazappi Featured By Owner Jan 8, 2014
Also (I just want to make sure I'm right) one mask is 300$ plus shipping 
HylianJean Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2014
For the time being, that is correct.

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!!!! :)
CandleLightDreams Featured By Owner Nov 23, 2013
Please message me when a available ordering slot opens up. It would be greatly appreciated. It truly is a beautiful work of art!!!
HylianJean Featured By Owner Nov 22, 2014
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! 
creytion Featured By Owner Nov 20, 2013
please email me as soon as one is available. I need this really soon. Thank you.
colossaltitanic Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2013

I've seen a lot of these on the internet, and this is the best one so far. I hope you're proud, you've got an eye for detail.
HylianJean Featured By Owner Jun 21, 2013
I guess I'm a little bit proud! :D Especially when I hear a comment like that. Thanks very much!
bradsettle Featured By Owner Jun 13, 2013
How do we, at least, get on the waiting list?
HylianJean Featured By Owner Jun 13, 2013
Basically, if you've expressed any interest, when I finally have some almost ready I'll go through and contact the people who have sent me notes or comments in the order I received them.
XDown2EarthX Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
This is... OH MY goodness the mask is so detailed and crisp. It looks like it was yanked out of the video game! I love how colorful and bright it is, as well. :) Perfect!

I can't look at majora's mask straight in the eye. T_T

this is so awesome
Halafradrimx Featured By Owner Feb 25, 2013
Hey, are you selling those yet? I want one for me.
LordValvatorez Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2013
I need this... I need this... I NEED THIS >:0
Sorry for flipping shit there, but having one of those masks would make my gaming life complete.
My favorite mask of my favorite game right. in. my. hands. It would be like a dream come true.
Keep making these awesome masks so numb-nuts like me can spend all our money on buying them.
HylianJean Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2013
Bwahaha! Your comment cracked me up. Thanks, I aim to please. :D Getting some masks churned out is definitely going to be a summer project. I'm waiting for the weather to be good enough to work with resin outside.
LozChroniclesofLink Featured By Owner Feb 19, 2013
I have to say this is probably the best MM out there wiith the fine details and what not it is like it came out of the game
chelseycosplay Featured By Owner Feb 13, 2013  Hobbyist Artist
Holy crap, this is fantastic :D Amazing work!
NintendoDimension Featured By Owner Feb 4, 2013  Professional General Artist
I know this might be a kind of annoying question, but what did you make this out of? I want to make my own but I don't even know what material it should be.
iamlv Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2013
I made one too, but I think your painting is phenomenal. I love the eyes and the horns!
Minatek616 Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2013  Professional Artist
Awesome Job!
nektoangel Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2013
First of all, excellent work, I've been searching for years this mask, and I just stomped into this thread and I can easily tell you this is the by far the best MM I've ever seen.

I have read your description and I think its really sad to know that you have stopped the production, but of course, it's comprehensible.

However, I do have intentions to pay the price you are saying.

I just want to know if you are planning on making these again in a distant future or I just have to say to myself that I came too late and have to find another person.
Also, I'm willing to wait.

Again, excellent work.

waiting for your reply :)
HylianJean Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2013
Well, I can't be more specific other than that I haven't given up on producing them, but I have no idea when I will have any available. Sorry about that. Thanks for the comment!
nektoangel Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2013
Thank you for answering.

Again, I'm really interested, so I'll be checking this deviation every monday so I won't miss the chance to buy one as soon as they become available again.

See you and I really hope we can do business in a future
fantasymaster51 Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2013

TheKavinsky Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2013

HylianJean Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2013
Please read the description, thanks.
