Here’s my entry for the contest, a busy forgemaster, having just completed the mask of shadows, it’s opposite sibling soon to follow.
Also @Connor_Hoffman thank you for the opportunity, this was a challengingly wonderful MOC to artistically render in my style.
Bonus Variants of Artahka's artwork
I made four variants, two with the cape, two without, and all four having a gold variant.
I chose the version without the cape as my main entry as I think it looks the best.
Mask of Creation Concept Art
- The mask is based loosely off the concept art for the G2 mask of creation, as well as a Hau.
- For runes I used the nuva symbols combined with the Skrall runic language.
- I gave design points from both the Avohkii and the Kraahkan, imagining that the two took their design elements from the ‘parent mask’.
- I kept the mask gold because all the Legendary masks, despite their many bearers, the masks remained gold, and only under certain circumstances changed their colors. As this is not Artahka’s original mask, I opted to stay true to the lore.
And just because I could, the 3D model of the mask.
