Snowy Owl Mask

You get the Ursula-is-tired-so-the-photography-is-half-assed version, but I was pleased with how the mask itself came out!

I wanted to do a snowy owl after seeing them—distantly—in Washington, so…err…I did! Despite my vow to never do a mask in white again. (It wasn’t so bad this time because I laid down a coat of medium gray, then drybrushed off-white and Titanium white over that.)

The beak is fractionally off-center, which makes me crazy in retrospect, but there comes a point when you cannot actually fix these things (i.e the leather is dried, the base coat painted and you are standing there with a brush going “Well, crapmonkies.”)

For sale. Will send to e-bay if people are interested, since I just wanted to make the owl mask, and am unlikely to wander around being an owl myself.
