Here's the first cast of the new mask. The photos aren't great but latex just doesn't seem to photograph well.

Just a small update on the mask, not quite finished with the paint job but i think it's almost done.
let me know what you think.

I still haven't finished painting the mask, I just can't get the eyes right.
Just finished this creature. Super Sculpey with oil pastel shavings mixed in to colour it and black flocking for texture, the teeth are translucent Fimo

His back and ears got a little overly toasted in the oven but i think it actually worked out well, the ears look better and veins don't stand out so much now.

Looks great, Josh. I like the fleshy look you have acheived in the neck. Nice work.

Wow nice paintjob on a cool sculpt. Great work!
Mind if I ask some questions? How do you get it to shine so much, as if it's wet?
Is that just varnish or something else?
And the teeth, what kind of stuff are they made of?

Thanks guys. Glad you like the paint job, it was my first time painting a sculpture with an airbrush so pretty happy with how it turned out.
Harmageddon, to get the wet look i sprayed it with Liquitex Hi Gloss Varnish and used a 30 minute epoxy on the eyes, teeth and lips but I think I put the Liquitex on a little too thick so they don't stand out as much as I'd hoped. Next time I'll try spraying a lighter coat or use normal gloss instead of the hi gloss.
For the teeth i used translucent white Fimo Effect, they got a bit dirty while i was painting the face but i think it looks better than if they where clean.

The Doom That Came to Sarnath
Just finished this creature loosely based on H.P Lovecrafts story The Doom That Came to Sarnath.

Awesome Josh, your style is unique and quite refreshing! Are you using a mixed medium base for your sculpts? Any plans or attempts at casting these?

Finished latex mask
Thanks CombatMatt, sorry about the late reply. The base for all the sculpts except the masks is just a wire armature bulked out with foil. I'm thinking of making casts of the sculpt I'm working on now, depends how it turns out.
Finally finished the mask i posted a few months back. Also cast and painted a new version intended to be wearable.
