akuma in Japanese if im correct means devil. this really turned out top notch. i was thinking it would turn out ok... but the coyote teeth and the "skin" added an awesome level to it that turned out fantastic. thank you for sharing your work and giving a little bit of inspiration to just go for it.
Epic-Leather's avatar
Yes you are correct; Akuma translated from Japanese is devil or demon/evil spirit, ect. ect. Thank you very much for your kind words and I’m glad to see it so well received. ^^

Man! This turned out great. The skin layer is a total surprise and a total win! Truly innovative work!
Epic-Leather's avatar
Thank you very much friend, yeah that skin took three tries before I got it how I wanted (it pained me to see all that leather wasted lol), since it’s made from a thinner leather I ended up at first boiling the leather to little, then way too much, and then another shrank too much, but tis an acceptable sacrifice for progress... and science. =P

Oh the price we pay for knowledge. LOL. Well, if its any consolation-it was well worth it. The effect is amazing!
Epic-Leather's avatar
lol I know right? But its always worth it in the end...well almost always, ok sometimes... when your lucky =P Thank you very much for your kind words. ^_^

pretty awsome... now i'm not sure if this was your intention or simply coincidence, but in Japanese, Akumu means "nightmare" (i dont know about akuma, could it be the plural? haha)
Epic-Leather's avatar
Thank you very much! Yeah as jugglingj had mentioned, Akuma is a demon, and being such an anime nerd it would be a disservice to not include some Japanese in my work lol. But the two are very similar indeed. ^_^

Excellent work! I hope you're not tired of me gushing over your masks because I'm about to do it again. You are truly inspiring as an artisan, your work is so creative and innovative it really jumpstarts ideas for creative mask design! They way you incorporate new elements is seamless and you make the mechanics of a (most likely) difficult process seem natural and intuitive. For this piece in particular I'm bug-eyed over the skin, and can't believe you went that extra step in making it removable. Hats off to you sir!
