The Mask Collector (v 2.0)


V2 is up, please revote! Thanks!





Re: The Mask Collector


Our friend here has the best mask collection in all of hyrule- looks like he's gonna need a bigger wall though An ode to one of my favorite games ever, inspired by Gerold Weschenmoser. This is hands-down the longest I've ever spent on an entry. Hope you enjoy

Don't let Gene Simmons see this. He'll commandeer any earnings.

Lol I intentionally made a lot of changes to certain masks so that they are recognizable without being the same- hopefully the changes are enough

And thanks for the kind words guys

My favorite is the "No Face" mask from Spirited Away.

I'm always a little afraid of making prints too big (although I've been heading in that direction with some of my more recent designs)- Obviously this design wouldn't have worked any other way though, so I wanted to fill up as much of the shirt as possible I tried to go for a little bit more of a subtle color palette than usual so it wouldn't be overwhelming- hopefully it works I'm really glad you guys are enjoying this one, thanks for the compliments and votes!

At first I was all like "Arg another Zelda shirt >.<", but after I looked at it more closely my art rage subsided.

It's obvious that you put a lot of time into this design. Even though it's based in pop culture, you've changed it up and made it your own with the different masks. Great work

Thanks I was afraid that the "arg another zelda shirt" reaction would be common on this design, and so it's really nice to see people seeing the work that was put into it instead of just dismissing it without a second glance- I also tried my best not to rely on just the most popular things here on woot and included a bunch of stuff I've never seen referenced, plus obviously a bunch of non pop culture masks as well. After shading 48 masks though, I felt like I couldn't see straight :P

Re: The Mask Collector


Oh, Ramy. I have always enjoyed your work. But the fact that you included a Spirited Away and V for Vendetta reference in this shirt just made me fall a little bit in love with this design. Definitely GMV!!

Re: The Mask Collector


This shirt is amazing. Everything it's referencing is amazing, especially MM... There's only one thing I'm curious about. What made you decide to make the little flying helper blue (OoT) instead of yellow (MM)?

But seriously, I love this.

I think if he'd chosen yellow it would have been too green. I know that sounds dumb, but I feel like the blue either compliments the green or holds it's own. For me, yellow is too similar to green. Kinda like red and pink? Maybe I'm just crazy... As far as references go, I'd say OoT was far more popular than MM, so blue for Navi also makes me ♥ this shirt more.

The color argument you mentioned is pretty much spot on in terms of my reason for choosing blue- I wanted the color to bring the design to life and felt it was very plain without that added spark. I also incorporated the blue as a highlight throughout the rest of the shirt to keep it from all looking like one color. I debated on the accuracy but decided to side with aesthetics in this case glad you are both liking the shirt anyway

I don't know what shocks me more, the masks I don't get, or the ones I do! I don't know if I could pull this off; maybe my friends would get more of the refences. But props for Simmons and Saw and Sparta (Esssses?), that I do recognize. Lots of good work here, at least in assembling a wide range of masks. Nice!

Quality work, well done. I voted for this Friday night and now I am looking at it again and finding new details that make me smile. I probably won't buy this for myself but I like it and I hope it prints.

I have some bittersweet memories of that game. I liked it a lot, but I could never beat that 3-day time limit. But I would love the chance to try again, now that I'm a better gamer.

Does anybody have a http://shirt.woot.com/offers/cloak-of-visibility-lightweight-hoodie and/or http://shirt.woot.com/offers/who-needs-gravity-zip-up-hoodie in MXL that they don't want and/or need to sell? I would LOVE to buy it from you! I am currently offering $40+S&H for either one new, and $20-30+S&H for either one used! Please contact me ASAP, thanks!

If I remember right, you could play the song of time backwards to slow down time by half ;)

Hands down my favorite zelda game; such an interesting core mechanic and such a beautiful world! And by FAR the most developed and multidimensional antagonist! Too bad its receiving its homage from ramy... and putting navi instead of tatl is just frustrating.

If it doesn't win, they should allow it as a daily with glow in the dark. Or offer it in an upcoming event as a hoodie (with glow) or poster.
