This colorful cartoon mask – one that could be worn on Halloween, or at some other party-like event… a ball or masquerade for example – is the root of creativity & repetition combined.
Beginning with a simple guideline – use the idea here, to either draw one – or actually construct one from some base materials of your choice. It’ll be inspirational!
First Step – A Framework for a Cartoon Mask
Basically, all you need to do before-hand, is come up with a simple symmetrical guideline from which to either draw or design your mask. Whichever way you go – the following cross, coupled with a simple rough outline, will help point you in the right direction.
Here it is…
Get creative here – and get the shape mapped out to a tee. This way, you can really let loose with the creative part – adding scales, streamers, feathers, patterns, etc. There’s really no end to the possibilities!
OK – let’s draw it.
Second Step – Let’s Draw!
Beginning with the eyes – and then moving out and around from there, slowly bring your creation into view by repeating a pattern(s) of your choice – on either side of the centerline.
Here’s how to draw it…
Bright and flashy – this drawing reminds me of the ‘Masquerade’ scene in the Broadway spectacle and movie – The Phantom of the Opera. You could add a stick coming off the side if you like – and it will resemble more-so, the ones women would traditionally wear.
Well, that’s all there is to it. Until next time! 🙂
