yeah ! it's not just the eyes though, it's the posture, the face is very expressive - she just plain kicks butt, that's all ! :D i mean you do, obviously - see how realistic she is, i was gonna give HER the credit ! XD you're awesome.

thank you. I have just figured out a way to make sculted polymer masks that fit well and can be worn and removed. so I want to make them more often:)

I can't wait to see more of these little masks -especially as I make larger masks, myself -it's always fun and interesting to see what other people do, and even moreso, at times, on such a small scale as this.:)

Your work is always such a pleasure to see, I've been following your DA for several years now and you never disappoint.:)

 I have one made now that is more traditional in style but, Im dying to make a oni mask that will cover the mouth muzzle.  mostly I am inspired by Phee Adornments. i really like her small sculpted masks. i need to work on hanging dangly bits on it too

Oh, I hear ya!!! I love the two mini masks she made some years ago...one was a small gargoyle-ish looking mask/necklace and the other a small fox.  She did gorgeous work especially for on such a small scale.
-I really am just amazed by the amount of detail both you and she are able to accomplish on so small a scale.

I can't recall having seen many more mini masks from her in a while...perhaps I've just missed them, but I am still watching her gallery. Is she still making more of them?

I'll have to take a look at your gallery again and see what you're talking about.

I've been so into cellophane/vinyl fairy wings and now Steampunk and Halloween stuff since Aug. that I've just kind of ignored my own mask making...need to get back into that soon. 

Can't wait to see more of your smaller masks -I'm never good at doing the decorative dangly accent bits. I get an idea in my head, but it just doesn't always come out right. And I see stuff other people do in their jewelry that I really like and want to use as inspiration, but not outright copy...but it's hard since my mind doesn't seem to work well in trying to put together something for jewelry, ya know?

 it was the one she made years ago. i dont think shes doing the same kind anymore.  Im slowly collecting beads and bangle type things but somehow its not intuitive to use for me.  I jsut think it adds a nice level of contrasting texture and detail and also some movement ot a sculpt.
 fi you dont want ocopy try not looking at the insipring peice for a long time. then draw up some ideas based on it. usualy you will forget bits or reinterpret in your mind how it was. you can then go back and look and see if you were all that accurate. if you were you can always choose to edit a few more things. when im inspired by something I never let myseld use more than one element. pose color theme or  a feature. I never use enough that even side by side youd be able to tell.

I like how you put that, "intuitive to use"....that's 'exactly' how I feel when I'm doing my masks or wings or now even Steampunk...it comes very 'intuitively' to me, very easily. 

Thank you for the advice on going off of inspiration but not copying -that's excellent. I think I, unintentionally, I do that more than not anyway. I'll see something that's inspiring and I'll save it to my Pinterest Board or here on DA or even to my desktop...but then forget to go back to it. As you said, going off of a re-imagined idea of it or something to that effect. Even with that, I still take an idea but then take it way off-course from the original....its kind of fun, I start with this general image of something and then as the days go by that I'm either working on it or thinking about it (or both), my brain just keeps working on it and sculpting the mental image until it's something very nearly completely different, if not.:)

Thanks so much!:)

her skin tones are just amazing.  If I didn't see the sculpture marking I would assume that this was an oil painting.

In this case Ive been trying to get the look of an old photo like a daugerreotype with hand tinted colors.but   of course my style of painting is always loose like oil painting. this keeps my work looking distinctively" fine art"
