wow, this is really beautiful and professional. the conformation of the muzzle, eyes and cheekbones is perfect. the wide-eyed shape around the eyes is a good touch. it makes the coyote look more harmless.
I really love this mask. People naturally assume every canine is a wolf because wolves are common and are usually what comes to mind first. But the work and effort in this mask could never speak wolf. It speaks coyote completely. The coloring, the eyes, the muzzle, everything is so realistic and says "this is a coyote". This is very, very good work.
Paint job is wonderful. Nicely blended too. i might recommend giving the white a little bit of tone. It jumps out so much with the beautifully natural colors. The tone might also make the shape of the lower jaw more noticeable and let the great head structure show more. I like the expression, slightly smiley.
Yeah its a Masquerade Ball based on the movie Labyrinth. Well based on the scene with the song "as the world falls down". It was amazing, costumes are required so the immersion and surreal nature is awesome.
