YOU ONLY LIVE ONCE...MAYBE TWICE!
hey guys long time no see. feels like I've been away forever, life and all that getting in the way far to much. well i plan on coming back here and doing more things again. getting evolved in conversations and even making new videos. now its for the videos that i have brought up this little discussion. now as all who know me know, I'm shy. i dont like to show my face on the internet, which is why you will always see me in a mask. but my old one is well old and rather crappy. i want to start fresh here and i can't think of a better way to symbolize this rebirth if you will, then with a brand new mask. I've actually been wanting to do this for a while now and i think I've finally come up with a good enough design to move on.
i want a full face mask this time and i want it to incorporate great passion for anime and of course my absolute love of zombies. i think what i have come up does a good job of both with out being to overwhelming on either. now while i have the main layout down i do have choice to make i hope you all can help me with. I'm going for basically a faceless look. this means a rounded and smooth mask with no nose or mouth features. but this leaves me with what to do for the eye holes. i could do the traditional holes making it easy to see but ruining the look. or i could make it with out holes meaning i would need some see threw only from one way kinda material. that I'm sure is out there but maybe hard for me to find. since i plan on making this mask myself.
anyway I've made a little mock of what both styles would look like and you guys tell me which one you like better. and also if you like the whole direction I'm going in or not. with out anymore words i ask you, eyes or no eyes?
Thats what im hopping for.
i sure will.
Agree with the other commentators -- this mask is sick. If someone came at me wearing it, I'd piss my pants
thats exactly what i was going for.
so i tried doing a mock up of how the finished mask would look using the real masks picture, for dimensions and what not and here's what i got.
so this is what the real one should look like when done. i want to make it look like an old porcelain mask, not sure how I'm gonna do that in real life. some layers of glossy spray paint will get the basic enamel look, but aging it will be hard. can't find any tutorials on painting fake old porcelain. so what do you guys think so far? its a little different from my drawn mockups. mostly the forehead was a lot longer on those but what can you do. i still think it looks cool.
don't know if i should keep the grill lenses or swap them out for sun glass ones. mirrored might be cool, or red. or i could just go with the normal black ones. ill try another mock up soon.
Okay ill give the otherone a shot.
