The Mask - Big Head's Back... by nickowolf The Mask - Big Head's Back... by nickowolf
I'm a HUGE fan of The Mask... no, no, not the movie version with Jim Carrey, which is still a good movie. I'm talking about the original bloody maniac comic version of The Mask. I think he's one of the greatest comic characters ever created... EVER!

The comic has also been one of the largest influences in my life. I read the original 5 part series when I was 9, and being an impressionable youth I sucked up all of blood, guts, and laughs and warped it into my own psyche.

So... that's how I came to be.

This was a doodle I did while I was on my break at work. I like how it turned out and made a cleaner vector version in Flash.

Oh, and if there's any other Mask fans out there, let me know... I don't know many other people who have read the comics. *weep*

This is the Big Head we know and love. After I saw videos of people voice acting the first comic, I've been interested. Now I look up all comics and try to impersonate the guy who did Mask's voice, who was fitting the role exactly.

I loved the Jim Carry film version, but I never knew untill recently that there was a comic book and I have been trying to find this comic ever since. From the research I did it is totaly different from the film and yet something I would totaly love to get into. I'd love to find this comic somewhere!

You perfectly captured his sadistic psycho-smile.
With those gigantic horse-teeth, small chin/nose, lack of ears and the blood-red yes.
I personally also love the comic. It's a bloody fun joyride, that also quite tragic seeing how the mask ruins the bearers lives.
I would love to see an animated movie based on the original 5-series comic, as it is a journey in the darkest, bloodiest, parts of comedy.

If Batman can have a reboot film like "The Dark Knight" then "Big-Head" should too. right down to retaining his African origins, the bloodshed he caused in the comics, and Walter!

I'm a massive fan of the original Mask! You could really feel how they lost their way and kiddied it up after the movie bringing out the cringe worthy "The Mask - Strikes back"! In case you have not read it I highly recommend Lobo/Mask! A great comic face off between two of my all time favorite comic "heroes"! In which Big Head finally gets violent again!

Yeah, you don't have to share 'him' with anybody.... =) They should have done more Mask movies. I haven't seen the second part, but ppl told me it's such a disappointment.... so I didn't want to spoil my godd experiences with seeing a crappy Mask movie...
I enjoyed the cartoon serie as well. :laugh:

Wow, I suck. I didn't even know there WAS a comic. Was the movie based on the monic, or the other way around? In either case, awesome job!

The movie was based on the comic, but only slightly. The character of Stanley Impkiss was MUCH MUCH different... like, he was a psychotic killer when he wore the Mask. He made up a revenge list and went around killing anyone who pissed him off in his life, including his 5th grade teacher.

I own the first 3 collections in paperback, so next time I see you you can take a gander. They're awesome!

When that happens, I should take a look at that katana. (It IS a katana, right? Like, with the curved blade and the right size and such?)

nickowolf Featured By Owner Sep 20, 2004   Digital Artist
As I said before, it is a STRAIGHT blade katana. No curves here, but it is the right size... keep in mind that this is just something I got off of e-bay a few years back.

It should be good enough for The Bride though.
