    I'm surprised I expected pepakura, but then I saw that you sculpted and my mind is blown.

    To say that your work is exceptional and awe-inspiring would be a gross under-exaggeration. Holy cow!

    Here are some final pics of the first 2 mask. This is version 2 for Noob which is more accurate to the game, as well as final paint for Scorpion. The first one was the Yellow color to match the costume that it was made for.
    let me know what you guys think and Sub zero wip pics will be up tomorrow.

    PM me for details

    I do think Sub-Zero's mask/costume was more aqua, yes, but I am totally loving the shade of blue you picked for it. What do you use to paint your masks?

    Looking forward to seeing how the latex mask comes out. I've been commissioned to do a MK mask and am considering doing it in latex.

    Re: Finish him!.... MK9 Noob, Scorpion mask.

    I like the gold coloration on the scorpion mask, the light plays with the contours quite well. It lacks something of the organic feel the in game mask had, but yours gives a distinctly more ornamental feel, which is in no way bad.

    Nice job all around.

    I tried for a scorpion shell kinda feel on the arms but also that hand made feel to it. The color for sub zero is going to be more auqua and the mesh is secured from the inside of the mask you do breath nicely tho lol

    Outstanding work! I tried to make MK masks last year from sheet metal and foam. I can't sculpt to save my life, but your work speaks volumes to that skillset. Awesome!
