Its been a while since I've posted anything so here's a recently completed project of my fav Video Game Darksiders, Mask of Shadows 1:1 Sculpt
"The Mask of Shadows gives War the ability to glimpse into a parallel dimension, allowing him to see things that would otherwise be unnoticed or inaccessible."
This is one mask they don't make but I want badly. Seeing how brutal the design of the mask looks I gotta sculpt it.
Worked more on this. Still a lot more to go:
Gotta tweak the textures, fix the eyes, overall refining of textures and forms. I may have to bring out and flatten the forehead part to look like the game concept art.
Darksiders Mask of Shadows WIP3
raised the forehead
sharpened and raised all the forms
fixed the eyebrows
The eyes and other final tweaks still needed before molding.
The mouth part is wider than the actual mask. Thats because I will sculpt War's Head to make it into a bust.
The Most Final WIP for this Darksiders Mask of Shadows
The eyes are the same size but not the same shape. I kinda wanted it symmetrical but looking from side angles throws off the eye a little hmm.
maybe I'll keep it as is.
Now to the molding stage - Yikes!
The mold is done. Its cured. I'm patching some little imperfections like air cavities in the side tusks area, 2 air bubbles (oh no!).
1st Casting. Slight warpage in the right eye area - warped inwards so u can't really see it from the front.
Never rush a casting. Take the time to place the mold inside the mother mold so that the keys lock in place
Its DONE! and I am gonna go (Sleep) celebrate Chinese New Year! Happy Year of the Rabbit!
Darksiders Mask of Shadows worn by War to reveal things that aren't easily seen with normal eyes.
It reveals a dimension beyond our own yet occupying the same space and time.
