Long time followers of this blog will know that I am a fan of fancy military helmets, particularly the Prussian Pickelhaube. I just happened upon this image, and it struck me as an opportunity to ink wash! I applied the color in photoshop.
(PS: if anyone finds a type-o in this post, my cat walked over the keyboard)
Helmets, hats, masks; all manner of facial coverings interest me. Samurai helmets are particularly riveting to me because of the artistry involved. Additionally, the face coverings emote dramatically, lending themselves to beautiful shadows.
