Could you share how you do the horns? I assume they come off for storage.

I'm impressed that someone was knowledgeable enough to know what the Gemsbok is, let alone comission a costume for it! Awesome work, and I will apologize in advance if this ends in faves and watch-spamming. ^^"'

I love the fact that you can generally pick the species of your pieces before reading the associated text.

You do a great job of capturing the basic identifying characteristics of the animal and then applying them to a very differently-directioned and technically demanding shape like the human frame for a mask.

Keep it up, I always love checking out your new creations!

Sometimes emails bounce. If you haven't heard back from me in about 5 days, send the email again.
If you don't hear back from me repeatedly, send me a note with your email address and I'll see if it's ending up in my spam folder or something.

The horns are cast replica Oryx horns, modified slightly to be shorter. We do the casting in-house.

I like the mask - you did a good job with the ungulate-type face. But (super evil crit-tyme 'cause you didn;t say I couldn't!) the horns are not doing it for me.. not on a realistic-style mask anyways - toony can get away with a lot more. Too straight and too obviously fake. I'd like to see the upper head where the horns are connected to the skull look more ungulate..ish. The rounded head is still very predator and doesn't really flow into to the horns.

Well, I'm going to at least disagree with you about the straightness of the horns, if I may. They're cast oryx horns, and the only modification we made to them was to shorten them and add a few ridges. They are no straighter than the original horns.

As for the shape, I realize this. It's hard to strike a good balance with a nice small, fitted mask and a more anatomically correct shape. I'm not really willing to make the masks any larger, which would definitely be necessary in attaining a more correct head shape.

I still love the horns regardless of what Beetlecat says about them. I wouldnt want them sloped more as i dont want to poke someone's eye out if i happened to bend my head back while in suit. I rather have a form-fitting mask than a large toony head any day!!

The oryx gazelle you made is by far better than Beetlecat's hands down!!!

I figured they might actually be cast (I waffled on part of my writing), but you only cast the tips correct? As that part *would* be straighter and not um reminiscent of the whole. If I'm wrong then they are both much smaller and *way* different than I expect :p
