Had been doing research upon the khajiit race prior to airbrushing and found that, while most of them are thieves, many were based off of African felines. Ditching the idea of creating a darker character in the stream, the owner of this head and I worked together, along with all the amazing folks that attended, and came up with more of an African warrior.
My grandfather had been to Africa many times and told me of the stories of the people that lived there and of the mesmerizing ceremonies that went on. The feline species is strongly lynx like with the long cheek tufts, but I wanted to create a character that could tell a story of its own. Ceremonial war paint upon its furred face, ear tips dyed red. It's coat dyed a mottled camouflage to blend in with the shadows, black eye paint framing striking blue eyes.
This mask was an artistic liberty, complete with resin following eyes, NFT cheek, ear, and head accents, moving jaw, and airbrushed accents. This mask has the most sensitive moving jaw I've done yet (will post a video later today when my lazy Pizza pup wakes up!!)
Khajiit belong to the owners of Skyrim-the Elder Scrolls. All rights researved.
