The JG2 was the second of our flagship mask offerings, and was well received for its binocular vision. Sadly, the form for our Jackal Model 2 is no longer viable for making production quality products.
Since our business officially opened in 2008, we have been able to pour improvements into each new mask design and any subsequent revisions of existing designs. While Wildgasmasks is not a full-time business (as in, we all have full-time jobs to support our livelihoods, supplies, as well as WGM research and development), we still have every intention of remaking this mask.
In the meantime here are some gallery photographs sent in by owners of the JG2 for your enjoyment.
Wanted to make sure the white of the ears and the dark tip were seamless so Kat found herself switching back and forth.
Finishing off the design with the selection of a pink nose. Darker areas had been blocked in previously as the natural markings one can find around the nostrils.
When our sleeping quarters are outside, the jackals sleep with us. They are channeling their inner bat, as we tend to hang them upside down.
Dont stare at it too long or make eye contact. It wasnt very patient.
Kat just went on a whim and chose to work from the cheeks and work my way to the back of the hood
This became a great marker to keep my stripe work flowing in the right direction. This is just one of many stripes that essentially were a reproduction of the stripes from Quietfire Version 1.
Getting there, and Kat has reached the center of the head
Just waiting for my stripes to dry. With the area cut in for the EL wire, it did take a few revisits to the edges, and some fine work with a tool.
With the final coats on our painted design, it was time to add our secondary colors, mixed for the sake of making our UV reactive painjob pop even more. With respect to the character's goatee, a small brush was used to create the impression of hair the best way it might look on a rubber tiger.
