Masked Warrior by CrazyAsian1 Masked Warrior by CrazyAsian1
hey peeps. starting fooling around with Painter... and i love it.

so ive wanted to do something with African tribal masks for a long time now. i find the idea of mask's fascinating. they represent the spirits of the world around us and are shrouded with mystery. when one puts on a mask they are no longer themselves. they become something greater than what they were.

aesthetically i love the variety of shapes and designs. i find it a great source of inspiration for designs. i also love the grandeur. Some masks are huggggeeeeeeee. the unwieldiness of it all is quite entertaining, but also very impressive and daunting at times. to see a figure coming towards you with an enormous mask of an ancient deity... that sounds like quite a sight.

hope you guys enjoy.
thanks for viewing

I'd be absolutely terrified if this thing came out of the trees toward me. Great design!

if someone with a huge mask comes toward me that would be daunting... but my eyes would be on the knives ;)

Crasian I seriously miss your doodles on the scribble :( (Not that I have time to visit that place either)
But I'm seriously loving this piece. The character has a slight Harlequin flair to it.

This reminds me a bit of the Xam'd anime series, of which a "mask" helps define the main character's purpose as a newly-transformed alien being. Cool and dynamic work, Rob.

I don't see the anything Aztec about this. The armor looks like a Japanese samurai minus the leggings. The mask is African according to his description.

The mask and it's colour combined with the frill neck and the segmented suit just made me think of aztec style
