As you’ve probably noticed from former posts, I like the fictive universe, J.R.R Tolkien created for his books: the Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit.
I wanted therefore to create a mask, inspired by the franchise’s villain Sauron. It’s not an exact copy, for I wanted to give it a bit of a personal touch and improvise a little. So after getting to the Idea, I started sketching out different versions of the helmet.
I used plaster to create a mold of my own face, on wich I afterwards started to build the mask on.
