My Diablo mask
« on: January 26, 2017, 01:33:21 PM »
This is my oldest mask that I still currently produce called "Diablo". I sculpted it in late 2012, right before I graduated from The Art Institute of Pittsburgh.

I started the sculpture with no real design in mind. However, I knew I wanted it to be some kind of alien unusual concept but growing up in the 90's, video games like Doom and Quake had a huge influence on my growing imagination.

After the head was sculpted, it took me some time to decide how I wanted the horns to look. I eventually chose to make the horns stick out from the sides horizontals with a slight downward curve, for no other reason because it felt the most balanced with the character and seemed to read well with the eye.

Now, this mask actually went through a first set of horns that were very sloppy and bad looking in my opinion. This is because at this point in time, my portfolio review was coming up and I wanted to have this mask to present at the showing. So I wiped up a hastily set of sculpted horns and got them molded and cast for my mask, promising to myself I'd make a much better set of horns for it in the future...( it would inevitably take me 3 1/2 years until I finally got around to doing so)

This mask remains one of my top selling masks today and is available on my website

Also the one on there right now is on sale for 10% off and ready to ship. First come first serve, so don't wait.

Thanks for reading everyone, I plan on discussing more of my masks and my journey into mask making in future posts!
