This mask was a very inspired commission from another artist here at DeviantArt. It's a sort of combination of my Okami wolf mask and my red fox mask.
I thought it might look like two diferent designs smashed together but it actually flows very nicely. The sumi-e elements on the cheeks and inside the ears make this look like a fantasy kitsune. I suspect I'll be doing a lot more of these.
This masks is (like everything I do) made from one piece of hand carved, hand sculpted leather. I actually documented the process in
, if you're interested in seeing the progression.
