So here is an interesting mask that I first thought was of one of those dragons that the Chinese use in their celebration for Chinese New Year, but this mask is actually Indonesian. Up next we will explore this tutorial to try and learn "how to draw a Balinese mask", step by step. I know there must be some of you that wanted to see a tut like this on Dragoart so here it is today. I actually had a lot of fun making this mask because it was not only a challenge, it is also a very beautiful piece of work. I have been a fond fan of all types of Asian inspired art and this one is no exception. The style of the mask and or face sort of looks like a dragon, but it also looks like a man or beast. Trying to figure out what these masks are used for is like trying to read stereo instructions. I do know that the Balinese mask is used in dance, as well as in an aid to rid evil spirits, as well as other spiritual rituals. People of Indonesia and Bali have a religion called Balinese Hinduism which is pretty common nowadays worldwide. Anyways, enjoy this lesson on drawing a Bali mask, and I will prepare my next exciting tutorial. Peace out people.
