Concept Mask of Ice Model

Shapeways was having a promotion a while ago so I'd thought I'll model one of the mask concepts that I really liked (it's like a Hau combined with an Akaku!) Objective of this was to get a feel of how one would model a mask to fit the G2 heads and as such, learn the more numerous requirements for the masks to fit (i.e the jawline should line, a notch must be fitted over the forehead, etc.) Admittedly, I ignored a characteristic found in the prongs which turned out to be important after all but 1) no space because the side cheek holes didn't give me any and 2)I ran out of time before the promotion would end. When I got the print, the mask fit incredibly well into the head but the connection was not that supportive. Thanks for looking!

Original Model (Modeled in Maya, Rendered in Zbrush)

Printed from Shapeways in White Strong Flexible Polished material
(Eyepiece is glued on; I want my Hau and Akaku 2)

Looks like a Hau here:

But Tahu, this is Kopaka's Mask.

It's sooooo nice! I love shapeways!
I really want to make a 3d design so I can have my own 3d-printed masks but I have no idea how to 3d model nor do I have the money to even use on Shapeways sleepy

I was just looking at that concept art, and ya, it does look like a hau.

I really love the axle pin.

Oh my goooosh

It looks like a Hau with a scope!!
That would have really accentuated Tahu and Kopaka's rivalry!

I've always loved Masks with Scopes on them. This one is no different.
The only issue is that it isn't an official TLG Product... ;-;
