Wolf Mask - SOLD! by SteelJaw Wolf Mask - SOLD! by SteelJaw
***EDIT*** I re-shot the front view, it looks FAR better now. The eyes are still off, but it's not so glaring with the mask actually sitting straight on the dummy. I've attempted to change the submission file, but it doesn't seem to be updating. x.x

Wolf mask made for practice. He was built as a practice piece to test out my large canine blank, and to generally expand my skills.

Mask features:
-Resin base with moving jaw
-Glass taxidermy eyes and full taxidermy jawset
-Two-tone grey and white fur with airbrushed details
-Horsehair whiskers
-Hidden zipper in the back for easy access
-Soft fleece lining inside the mask and across the top of the head
-Mouth stays partially open to allow for ventilation
-Tear-duct vision

Mask will fit heads 22-23" (when measures at the level of the eyebrows), and 4.5" from pupil to bottom of chin. May fit smaller heads with adjustments and additional padding, but not guaranteed. Auction also included approx. 1 yard of the grey fur used in the mask to allow buyer to make a tail, extend the cape as necessary, etc. The fur is an uncommon pattern and is out of production.

Here is a video of the jaw movement test that we did: [link]

Even though he is complete and I won't make further changes, I would love critique on him so that I may improve on my next project. One thing I'm really looking to improve on are the eyes, especially making them appear neater and more realistic from a straight side view.

He is SOLD and will be on his way to his new home soon. :D

A base mask like this would start at $600.00US. This particular mask was auctioned off and went for slightly less.

Nope! It's 100% synthetic fur with airbrushing to blend it together to look more natural. :>
