These are all wonderful, Orchid. EVEN the pastel temptress! :D

Actually, the depth on the last one is amazing--VERY 3D. Excellent shading and highlighting. And I love the "polished" look of the mask. But, hey, SHE BE MEEEEAN!:eek: :eek: :eek: :)

These are very creative! I love them all. The last one is spooky looking (Temptress) but I like it! What I also like about them is that their all very different!

I think your masks are wonderful allof them with a different personality,it's not something i would have thought of doing although i have wondered about the mask cultures and the signifigance behind them attached are some that i've come across that you might find interesting Regards.

Guilliame, you've given me an idea. I, too, have a collection of masks. I'll photograph them and put them in the ref library. Maybe you could put your photos there too. Great reference for artists.
