Tonight I was too tired to do homework from the office, and instead of watching Chef Ramsay's "Kitchen Nightmares" series on YouTube, I decided to pull out my remaining partial bag of Little John clay (and a bit of P570 white which I mixed in), and make another dragon mask.
I usually spend a lot of time, making precision details, but tonight I challenged myself to use rough strokes, and create an imperfect mask fairly quickly. I think I succeeded. My main texturing tool was my thumb and thumbnails. What do you think?
first two masks (and see the first finished dragon mask here). Of course, there are similarities in the eyes, and eyebrows. But I think I managed to make a different dragon. I would have liked to add a few jagged teeth, but I wasn't sure I wanted to start fiddling with that. Maybe my fourth dragon should have some wicked looking teeth.
I will need to let it dry a bit, and then carve away some of the weight, as I think I was pretty heavy on applying the clay. But otherwise not bad for one night's work. :-)
