Hey There guys, been absent from the lair for a bit of time, and decided to come back big! I finally got around to painting the mask Casey(Biohunter) sold me WAAAAAAYYYY back in March. So here it is in all its semi-glory. It was my first time working with an airbrush/latex paints, so it was a new, but thoroughly enjoyable experience. I still have to work a few details and seal it, so any hints/suggestions/criticisms will be taken as they come.


Anyway enough of me blabbing about it, here's the pictures.

Here's a front view

Wow, that's an awesome paint up dude, I love how the tones blend in nice & smoothly. Throw some dreads on that sucker & you're ready man, good luck with the suit!

Thanks Tatsu, I still need to perma-wet the sucker and do some detailing

glad you like it

I like it but in my opinion I think it looks just a little 2 D. I would suggest putting some spots in there and fading them in as you put more layers on the mask. But who gives a damn what we say the only thing that should matter is that you like it.

I like the fire crackle-style finish on it. I have a friend who owns a guitar like that.

I was thinking, like Garo Predator was, that it should have more spots on it. Maybe it doesn't need as many as I put on my first mask, but it could use more spots on the top of the head. It's your mask and your vision, though, so don't feel obligated.

Looks great! Without the dreads, it reminds me of a triceratops. I like how you made it look scaly, well done! ^^

Looks really good for a first attempt! But I agree with Garo that it looks a little 2D. I would suggest putting some darker tones in the folds of the cheeks and the wrinkles on the head. I've never airbrush but I paint digitally so I'm sure it works the same way. Most things should have three types of color, midtones (regular skin color), lightones (highlights) and dark tones (shadows). Hope that helps. If that's your first then you will only get better :)

Thanks for all the comments guys, Im really happy with the way it turned out, So happy I already sealed it and dreaded it. Oh well. I'll take all the advice into account whenever I do another head, I think after I get this full costume done, I'm going to start crafting a P2 Borg costume, cause I don't think there are any on here. Glad everyone likes it!
