“It's a terrible thing to be alone -- yes it is -- it is -- but don't lower your mask until you have another mask prepared beneath --as terrible as you like --but a mask.”
Sometimes you have to dig a little deeper than trying to take off the mask itself - some people are covered in armour made of ice.
Yes, masks - a subject that's pretty much one of the most exploited ones. Wanted to try my hand at it and I'm actually quite pleased with the result - hope you are, too. The mask itself is made from a scratch - I think it was the most challenging part of this manipulation. Enjoy.
