''The Facehugger'' Cybernetic alien gas mask by TwoHornsUnited ''The Facehugger'' Cybernetic alien gas mask by TwoHornsUnited
Another wild mask i've created. This one has glowing EL-wires weaved throughout the mask and a plasma chamber. Also Because of certain unique parts I will NOT be reproducing it, So it's truly one of a kind! :)

The electricity effect is quite stunning~ :D


Correct me if I'm wrong, but are thoes "claws' LEGO/Bionicle pieces?

Thanks! And no, actually they came from part of a rare zoids blox kit I had a long time ago. 

Every now and then I use rare parts like that.

Ah, it looked familiar though. ^^;

But that's cool; adding bits from your (rare) personal collection shows that you're very dedicated to these masks. Your clients would be proud to know that! :aww:

Aw shucks! 
I use rare parts when I think it's necessary and only If I don't want to make an exact remake of it.
I'm extremely dedicated :)

Ah, that's very nice of you! It's great that you won't mass-produce someone's special order. You're very faithful to your clients~ :)

I can tell, and it's certainly paying off! :clap:

Well, it's a little more complicated than that. 
Some things I sell are unique only because they're partial assemblages from unique parts, so I physically can't reproduce them. Everything else I make is also 100% my intellectual and artistic property and I DO reserve the right to reproduce anything I create.

It's actually one of the main reason I don't create replicas of anyone else's design. Any special orders I take on are only from people who have a vague or strictly descriptive idea, color choice, and style reference pictures (most frequently referencing my own previous works) of what they want, but not a"hey here's this 3D model of a mask that I own the rights to, create it for me" type commission, I don't do those. I'll work with the person on what they want, but they're usually always cool with me having my artistic freedom to go nuts but follow their guidelines at the same time, trusting that I'll create something for them that they'll like. And I've never had a disappointed commissioner yet! But the whole idea is that if I'm creating it, I like the end result, and I want to remake it, I'm able to no matter what.  My artistic rights and freedom remaining intact. 

So in conclusion - I'm not exactly "faithful" to any of my clients, partially because none of my clients have ever stated they wanted me to never reproduce whatever I make for them,  and partially because I reserve my rights to do so anyway as I'm the sole owner of the resulting intellectual property. 

I also never really "mass produce" anything, as I'm just one guy. 
Just didn't want you to have the wrong view of me, good or bad. 
My apologies for the rather lengthy response.

Oh, my bad! I'm terribly sorry (bad choice of words)... :invisible:

Of course; nobody can claim your work/designs as their own. That'd be theft. 
I feel bad for being so disrespectful! I keep forgetting that these are works of art. They take time and patience to make each one. I guess I'm so used to the animation ways, where every drawing/frame is basically redrawn/produced in mass levels. 
When I said "mass produce" I only meant to reference you mentioning how you're comfortable/fine with re-creating certain mask designs over others. I tend to over-contrast things (I'm not sure why, for emphasis I guess)...

Oh, and I didn't realize most people just said "make that thing you've made last time" or whatnot. I thought they've put more certain specifics into each commission... 

I'm really sorry, especially since you've mentioned how hard you work/dedicated you are to your craft. It's like a huge insult for me to be so careless! (I just remember talking to a book artist who mentioned how he'd never re-produce custom orders due to respect for his clients. I didn't realize I was combining you two in my head). Wow, I feel like a jerk! ^^;
