Strife by Qarrezel Strife by Qarrezel
Yet another piece from the summer that I apparently forgot to upload. The photo could have been a bit better, but our camera's aperture was being screwy that day.

This is the mask made as part of a full suit. The project was completed in August on commission.

Your costumes and masks are so real looking that they look like actual taxedermied animals.

I was always wondering about your pieces that have bigger, heavier horns... do you give them some kind of additional support through the mask like for example onto the shoulders of the wearer? or do you only use "light" horns, meaning build them yourself out of some very light material so the basic mask is enough to support them?
thanks for any info, this is a beautiful mask!!!

Usually additional support isn't necessary, as the horns do cast pretty light. However, I do plan to add a bit more strapping to larger horns in the future, on the suggestions of one of our customers.

ahh ok, they are cast, that makes it easier.
I am about to use a set of real, about a metre long ram's horns that's why I'm now looking around for different ways to support them. thanks for the info ^^

Fur pattern makes me think of rag doll cats. I used to feed a rag doll stray in Savannah.

when I saw your comment I looked at the mask again, and you are right, it does look like a rag doll cat :D, weird when the ragdoll is so cute and this is more majestic

OMG really! I love it so much. Ive seen a lot of stuff similar to this on DA, and it has inspired me to pursue making a wolf suit. I need a job first tho.

I would have to agree with iSicken about the eyes. They appear to be sitting unevenly, but it could just be the way the pictures were taken, since they're set in a bit, if that made sense. The rest of the mask is beautiful, although I almost didn't notice the ear style since they blend in with the background at a glance. Perhaps it is the angle, but the mouth looks a little lopsided? Maybe it's just me.
Anyway, it's a beautiful mask, as always, and I'm fascinated by the detail once more. Each piece you post makes me more anxious to commission you once I've scrapped up the money. Almost there! Hehe. :)

A beautiful head, as always. Only thing that I could point out as the eyes look a little strange.

Thanks for the critique - what do you think I could do to improve the eyes? For the future, of course, as this mask is already out and about.

The eyes do look a little weird, but I think it's largely because the shape of the pupil is one that we don't often see so it naturally looks strange.
The picture on the left does make it seem like something else is at work here, like the eyes are looking at two diferent things? Hmm, that's not quite it. That might be the resin or acrylic (not sure what you use) warping the painting on the backside. Or it could be the unfortunate camera that was mentioned in the description.
I guess since it's not present (to me) in the other two pictures, I'm inclined to believe that it's a trick of the angle or the camera.

Hm, it's a tricky one. When I look at the mast straight on in the middle photo, that one looks alright, it's the side on ones, I think it looks slightly like the furthest eye gets bigger (Even though I know they're the same size) Definately not an expert on this, but maybe make the eyes a little more foreward in the head? Though I'm not sure that would work. Or maybe have the eyes tilted outward a little more instead of straight on the face, though have the pupils pointing foreward?
It may be however just how I'm looking at it.
