Raven Mask by Nambroth Raven Mask by Nambroth
Whew! Finally done.. though I must say it was a delight to work on! A raven mask, woo!

The base resin is done by the very talented :iconcrystumes:. I then sculpted it further to be a heavier raven bill, and sanded, and sculpted and sanded, painted and set the eyes, and furred/feathered it. I imported wild boar bristles for the rictal bristles, because I felt faux fur would be too fluffy in appearance for that area. This is a "fantasy" raven, and though it's hard to tell there is purple iridescence on the crest, as well as the more obvious labradorite gemstone set into the forehead. I hand set about a billion (okay, maybe 300 or so) feathers into the crest and throat of this raven.

While I did model it for these terrible rushed photos, this is not mine, and was done for an anonymous client. It was super windy and I was having the devil's own time getting self portraits with the timer on my camera. I'd get better photos but I've since sent it out.

This is absolutely gorgeous!  Everything of it is awesome, especially the bristles and especially the details of the beak on the second to last photo!  And I just love the bright blue eyes!  :love:  Again, this is gorgeous
