Hatchworth Mask by owlspeckles Hatchworth Mask by owlspeckles
This mask is part of a series that I made as gifts for the members of the band 'Steam Powered Giraffe'. The designs are inspired by the makeup of each performer, as well as original artwork by :userbunnybennett: who plays the character Rabbit in the band.

This mask is for Sam Luke whose character is a bronze bot named Hatchworth. This one is a little different in that Sam is a vegan and leather wasn't an option! I ended up experimenting with craft foam (the same stuff I use to make mock-ups of the leather ones) until I figured out a way to make a psuedo-carved/tooled mask that mimics leatherwork. It's not quiiiite as 3D, but I'm really happy with how it turned out!

A few weekends ago I actually had the opportunity to present the masks in person to the band members at the Spring in Sepia concert! They were really well received, which is always exciting to hear, especially from artist to artist. It truly makes me happy to be able to share a little bit of what I love to create as a small thank you for all the amazing work they share with us. Eventually I will be making everyone in the band a mask of their own, but I was only able to finish these first three masks in time for the concert. More to come!

Hi! This looks awesome!

Just curious, though-- "Sam is a vegan."
Was this from a video? I read something about crackers with honey, but I can't find the source.

I'm not 100% sure what you're asking...but Sam Luke from SPG is indeed a vegan, so I needed to find an alternate mask material for the Hatchworth mask :)

I love these masks, and I was wondering how you were going to take Sam's veganism into account. This is seriously amazing!

Thank you!

I'm really happy that they still look cohesive even though I had to deviate from leather :D
