Japanese Fox Mask by merimask Japanese Fox Mask by merimask
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 :iconleathermaskart: , if you're interested in seeing the progression.

Shaped mask: [link]
Dyed mask: [link]

These will eventually be available in my Etsy shop for purchase. [link]

I'm going to have a go at making a leather mask but quite small, about a 5cm x 5cm size, do you have any advise for doing smaller masks? X
