Taken near a local lake here in Southeast MI. Echo, a blue jay inspired drake, was originally created to test out a pair of new molds (a drake/dragon blank, and a taxidermy replica mold of some blesbok horns, both done by me) and then was entered into a fantasy mask competition at the Holly Renaissance Festival, taking first place
There are many details that went into this mask, from hand painted highly reflective copper resin following eyes, to moonstones embedded into each horn. The mowhawk is hand wefted NFT, articulated jaw, fully articulated tail complete with hand made feathers. The leather armor was not by my hand, nor was the tunic, pants, or hood. I only made the hands, tail, and head. Body costume is by Ceshion Co on DeviantArt, thigh pack by Vontoon on Etsy. The shoulder paldron was from a maker in Canada, cat paw gauntlets by another in Minnesota.
Not for sale at this current time, commissions are closed. I will not disclose on the making of the parts at this time.
