Mask by captain-amazing Mask by captain-amazing
This is one of my favourite of my more recent things (and also the last).
the face is made up entirely of things that are not human images. and i painted over/into some of it.

don't ask me to explain the text background. ;)
i scanned this one too, so it is safe and indeed preferable to FULL VIEW. :nod:

you know I am fan of your by now and also a fan of mr Dave McKean and this works reminds me a lot of him. Don't get me wrong, it's not my intention to compare artists, it's total bullshit, but in this case I see a sort of clever evolution and influence. I love the texture of this piece and the right eye is amazing.

don't worry about the comparison, i am a fan of Dave McKean also, and this picture was me deliberately trying to emulate his art style as much as i possibly could (while not reproducing any one particular artwork by him).

i wanted to try out a few new techniques at once (collage, painting over photos, working with texture, stylistic features, etc) and they were all pretty much derived from McKean's work. so this was created as an experiment, sort of a tribute to his art style. to figure out if i could reproduce those particular things in his artwork that i liked and to see what worked for me. it wasn't really meant to be a piece of art on its own.

anyhow, i'm very happy you like my work, as i'm a big fan of yours as well; and to see all these comments on my work from you was awesome, thanks so much for taking the time :)

clearly the Dave McKean influence shines through, and if i would know you would have seen older pieces from me, (which i have not online)i would say you have been influenced in the same way, i was- recreating the McKean style in a more traditional way.

i like your approach more than my earlier works,
congratz btw!

thanks very much fantasio :) that means a lot.
that is exactly what i was trying to do with this one - recreate what i liked about Dave McKean's work, and see how it fit with me. good to hear i wasn't the only one haha :D.

yes i've seen it. the artist behind that movie (dave mckean) was easily the main inspiration behind this picture. i'd just discovered him around the time i made this i think.

:iconxanthochroi:

i said mirrormask instead of mckean because it's probably easier to find and appreceate than his other work. glad i was right ;)
