A commissioned mask for Rein (on FA) of his gryphon!
As I cannot cast resin in my current situation, this was built on a blank crafted by the talented
. I love this chunky eagle face and it works particularly well for some gryphon characters, I think!!
I made some minor modifications to the blank, including re-sculpting (mostly around the beak, nares, and birdlips). The eyes are hand painted resin half-spheres. I had some issues with my airbrush, so the painting is done by hand. Furred (with faux fur), and approximately 300-350 feathers were each trimmed and set individually by hand. Very tedious, but rewarding!
Not shown: Blue silicone tongue (I'll try to get some shots of someone wearing it later!). The jaw is fully articulated and moves with the wearer's jaw movements.
