Tobi Mask
« on: July 04, 2016, 01:43:56 AM »
I thought it would be cool to post my other artistic ventures.  :dance:

I made a Tobi mask like 3-4 years ago. Made out of basic wood  boards and just painted orange. I never had experience doing it but now i know what i should of done. I did it with only a circular saw and wood glue with sawdust to form the swirls.  Now that i actually have tools and real paint, i think i can make way better masks.

you could have painted the lines down along the swirls black to make it more prominent as well :P
if you ever make something else be sure to post it :P

Its not that bad for a first prop, especially if it taught you new technics. There is always things to improve, no matter tout level. Maybe a dremel could br useful to ingrave little détails. Using plastic foam should work too!

Man, CosPlay is more terrifying to me than drawing because of the expectations. This does look pretty good though. Props! How long did it take to make?

Cosplay is more stressful than drawing: you can't erase easily your mistakes, it often means remaking the piece. One common point is that you have to try test and work à lot to improve.

The mask took only a day to make. I just collected sawdust from wood prices I cut. Probably like 1 lbs worth. And bought wood glue and mixed it with a little water. I was watching Naruto shipudden and I was like, I can make that mask. So I did, kind of.

The hardest part was ciuttinh a piece of wood into three parts and glueing them together so they start to curve so it fits around the face.

I have bought a dremel multi functional set like a year ago but I use that mostly for the anime  figures I am making for my stories. I wanted to go back to make masks but that takes money and time that I would rather use on sculpting figures. I got to half way with the Madara mask, the purple one, but I stopped.

Haha looks like it just sort of happened without any need for a fist pump in the air and 'IM GOING TO DO THIS'. I don't know what a dremel multi functional set is haha.

If you ever get the urge again go ahead I say. Looks like you have the knack for it for sure.

Cosplaying has a lot more problem solving involved than drawing methinks. Just to think of the materials alone. How the heck would you get your hands on a good Akatsuki cloak for example!

I have an akatsuki cloak too ;D that one was hand made by some random lady. It's pretty good but it still looks like a knock off.  It should be in my closet but who knows. That was a while back.
