Nightowl Maniac Repaint!

nce I repainted my H78 recently, I thought I would take a stab at doing my Nightowl Maniac, I am only a beginner and learn as I go along with most things so its not perfect or upto the deluxe quality of the real mask makers.

Although for a long time I was happy with the paintwork, I decided it was time for a change, I wanted to go for a more subtle fleshy paintjob rather than the harsh tones and thick black weathering, below is a before and after shot that I have taken to show the difference in the paint, the light also changed nce it was later in the day when I finished it, they are just quick snaps so they aren’t perfect have in no way been edited.

I also styled the hair a little bit and added some dry blood to the needle mark on the neck.

Let me know what you think please.

Great job....I'm not really a fan of this mask to begin with but I think the repaint and the hair styling makes it look 100x better then it did. Congrats

I love it!

As a stylized mask, it's best that it not try to have a screen accurate paint job.

It's more of a representation, so the paint scheme you chose is perfect.

It's ghostly and striking, almost like it was the comic book veron of Michael.You really did a great job on it man.

Yeah man you got it, thats exactly what i went for, its a kinda shadow mask that is painted in the darkened areas, it only really works well when it has a decent overhead light.

Thanx for the comment. :)
