Hello folks, how is everyone feeling today? I hope you are feeling and doing fine on this beautiful Thursday morning. I wanted to submit a lesson on a very popular mask from one of the most famous and popular movies to date, Friday the 13th. Jason was a character that made all future creations of masked murders based a little on himself. In fact there was three characters from the eighties that will always hold a name in the hall of horror film movie legends; Freddy Kruger, Jason Voorhees, and Michael Myers. Jason’s character was created by a gifted crew that was very resourceful and creative. This tutorial is going to show you “how to draw Jason’s mask” step by step. The sketch took a little while to draw out because I wanted it to be detailed and defined to look as real as possible. I have a tutorial already on how to draw Jason from Friday the 13th, and in that lesson I fail to mention where Jason’s mask came from. It all started with the making of Friday the 13th Part 3. In part two Jason wore a white cloth like bag over his head and it wasn’t until the production of part three that Jason’s signature mask would stay with him for all time. It was during a make-up check with the production of part 3 where they where supposed to put make-up on Voorhees but nobody wanted to so they threw a mask on him instead. The trademark mask that was thrown on Jason Voorhees was a 1950's Detroit Red Wings goalie mask that belonged to Martin Jay Sadoff who was the film's 3D effects supervisor and an avid hockey fan. Because the mask was too small for the actors face, they made a mold to make it bigger and more detailed with slightly different red painted markings on the mask you see today. I love the creation and I think it was the smartest idea ever made for a serial killer. Now for those of you that like Jason, you will have the opportunity to learn “how to draw Jason mask” step by step right now. Have fun with this tutorial, I will be back later on today with more drawing fun. Peace out!
