that would be nice to see. this one has a very masculine feel, despite the rose.

very simple and yet elegant, but bold. it looks lovely. it would go wonderfully with a flamenco dancer's dress.

Thanks. I've since made a much more complex version of this mask which I think I like better on a whole, but I think this one will still have its place because of that very mood you say it invokes. I'll put up the other one as well at some point, although it has already sold.

i love the idea, color choice and the clean, simple lines. i can't tell if it's just the picture, but there do seem to be a few uneven spaces/splotches in the black lines on the rose. that's really the only thing that isn't fantastic. amazing job, as always :)

It's not the picture, it is human error. The lines were very fine, so inevitably there's only so perfect a brush can be. What I will attempt to do in the future is tool the rose to a higher level of detail to give it more texture and be less reliant on black outlines to give it shape. I will still use them for effect, but errors will be less apparent if the overall design is more natural and less geometric.

They're not even that noticeable, so I wouldn't worry about it too much. I did want to say that I love the way you painted the other mask to highlight what would naturally be highlighted and so forth - it's really a great idea.

It's like a brightness/contrast adjustment layer in real life! The way the light hits something creates every bit as dramatic of an effect as actual detail, so I essentially tried to work it such that it appeared to be in dramatic lighting no matter where it was or what angle it was viewed from.
As for the mistakes, I've improved in my tooling so hopefully I can supplement that additional technique so the mask isn't so heavily reliant on a single method.

Oh definitely - it's amazing how much you've improved already. I'm looking forward to future projects ;p

So....my first thought when I saw this was that it'd be the perfect mask to compliment a flamenco-style dress. :D
