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.
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.
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.
Kat just went on a whim and chose to work from the cheeks and work my way to the back of the hood
Dont stare at it too long or make eye contact. It wasnt very patient.
.... yup, that diamond was just a bit too sharp for the client's liking. With some precision, it was smoothed out and made a bit more organic
Stripes are often created using flexible paper templates. The first coat wont look so great, but it allows a "trace" of the stripes around the mask's curves.
