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.

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.
I guess I'm a little bit proud! :D Especially when I hear a comment like that. Thanks very much!
How do we, at least, get on the waiting list?
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.

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!
