Thank you!! :iconhilaryplz:
Yes, the feathers were time consuming, but not as annoying as I thought they would be. I used a low temp glue gun too so that I wouldn't throw a fit when I got stuck to the mask (which happened a LOT)Thanks again!

I love this - reminds me of something from The Labyrinth or the Dark Crystal. It's rather Brian Froud-esque, either way. Nice work.=D

Wonderful work! Did you use resin or how did you get the beak to be so even?

AppleBush Featured By Owner May 14, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Thanks! Yes, I used resin for the face. I evened it up by sanding down that beak ultra hardcore all the way up to 1000 grit sandpaper so it would be smooth and glossy c:

Thanks :) Me'n my friends are trying out alternate materials, but though they are really good, parts such like beaks won't be as even as with resin. Thank you for your help!

awesome! What is it made of? Paper mache? I did a mask project not too long ago also. Does the bottom jaw move? If so, how did you set it up? (like, did you use elastic around the head or..?)
XD sorry for all the questions, just quite curious!

I actually used a liquid-plastic material for the face, :iconqarrezel: has a tutorial for it explaining everything and where to buy! Yes, the mouth does move, and it is a balaclava elastic base, so spot on that one! Ah, and the questions are alright :iconokayplz:

Cool! I'll check that out :) I made a lizard and it's a bit primitive due to deadlines XD but i made a moving jaw as well so it'll be interesting to see how they did it :D great job on your mask!

Thank you so much, and other people had mentioned the Dark Crystal to me as well. It's sad though, I haven't seen it yet, but I guess it was.. like a skeksis? I googled it :p but yeah, thanks for the compliment it means a lot :3

I actually did tease it, but dang! it wouldn't even take my Sora spray! AND it was real hair, watafrak! so I combed the crap out of it especially at the ears and it worked a little bit :iconsmilesplz:
