March-Of-Time Hare #9 by merimask March-Of-Time Hare #9 by merimask
EDIT: Just a note; I've never even seen Bioshock...honestly. I'm too busy to play video games these days. :) Every time I put up one of my rabbits I get loads of "Bioshock" comments and seriously...IDK. I don't think my masks look exactly like anything out there, myself. I create in a vacuum of information for exactly that reason, on purpose, so that my stuff stays as unique as possible. If it reminds you of something, that's great...that's exactly what art should do. But, just be aware that you bring ~yourself~ to the artwork, and what you get out of it depends on ~your~ experiences and culture. Frankly, I'm far more influenced by Sir John Tenniel than any video game. Google him! ;)

Newest "March-Of-Time Hare" in the shop here ---> [link]
This one is in a new color combination that I think looks delicate and subtle; brown/cream/gold. With a metal pocket watch face from Russia circa 1900 for a centerpiece.

Made entirely by me, entirely by hand. Leather, clock and watch parts, brass hardware, acrylic paint and love.

Thanks! Too busy (and so much copyright infringement going on, I'm keeping my newer secrets to myself) but my old tutorials are a good place for anyone to start & then, you know, do their own thing. :)

Those parts you have on the ears look really cool. Must have been from a pretty snazzy watch!

Haha for true! Actually they're some pretty neat brass stampings I found after much searching. Not utilitarian like most of the parts I use, but so neat I couldn't not use them. My source dried up so I only have a few more sets though...boo.

I've never played bioshock. But when I saw this mask I was reminided of the killer in the first chapter of the manga Godchild.

This is amazing! the detail is simply astounding and reminds me of a stempunk alive in wonderland! all you need is a white and gold suit with a gold cane.
