Hey all. I made a wolf mask (can be found in my gallery) around 8months ago and I am finally getting back to making more masks. This is my latest mask, my first Dragon Mask. I air brushed it with dyes. The holes are where the horns actually go. This is a prototype. No mask will be painted exactly the same but I am trying to keep them all very close to the original in shape (there are some variations due to the complexity of the shaping). I have two masks right now drying and I'm hoping to start painting them today. I'll probably use a combo of dye and paint for them. I'll post more pictures when they are painted. but for now here's a picture of my prototype dragon. Oh and I'm in the works for making another kind of dragon soon! Enjoy! and crits and questions are welcome!

I had replied on your gallery posting but I'll say again, this is truly awesome. The color, the forming, the shape/style, I like everything about it!

:jawdropper: That is gorgeous! The shaping, the coloring, and the scale details are all amazing. Your other masks are beautiful too.

Are you using dyes for the coloring, or something else?
