With this dedicated fan page, I hope to change that. M.A.S.K. was too cool of a concept to let it whither away and die. I plan to use this web space as a depot for any artists who are inspired by M.A.S.K. and would like to display their art. There will be several categories to file your pics in. Including three skill levels (fledgling artist, amateur enthusiast and advanced/professional) and three (or more) sub-categories.
Your art should be as cartoonish or realistic as you like and include your favorite characters (masked or unmased) or vehicles or both. The only thing I ask they not be is obscene. Art submitted also doesn’t have to consist of established M.A.S.K. vehicles, characters or masks. If you have a new twist on something old, or something altogether entirely new, that’s cool too.
Obviously, once I get some fan art in, all this art from the cartoon will be replaced. :-)Please flag all submissions “Attn: Fan Art” in your subject line. If you would like to vote for your favorite art once I get some fan created pics in here, please flag your votes “Attn: Art Vote”. You can submit all art and votes to Opuskhan@aol.com. The voting concept is that the art with the most votes will be incorporated in the main page, but all will probably be available in gallery format, depending on if I eventually get swamped with art, (sigh) doubtful.
If you are a good artist who is too young to remember M.A.S.K., but would like to try your hand, visit any of the links below to learn much more about the cartoon I used to watch and toys I used to play with as a kid. When M.A.S.K. came out, Star Wars toys were fading from memory, and the first and second place takers for favorite shows/toys of “kids my age” were G.I. Joe and Transformers. Today, both of these get the recognition expected from the fans out there. But since M.A.S.K. was second runner up, (third runner up if you want to count He-Man), there is precious little about it on the web today. I was never TOO much into G.I. Joe, or He-Man, so M.A.S.K. was always in my #2 spot. (Joe must have been in third place. The only thing I ever thought was cool about He-Man was that bad-ass of bad-asses, Skeletor.)
Sorry, didn't mean to get side-tracked. An idea recently hit me, I've thought up a separate catagory altogether. This should interest any Mecha/Anime fans out there. It's the "redesign T-Bob" category. The absurd little robot that turns into a motor-scooter is way overdue for an overhaul. Who knows, his "Jar-Jar of M.A.S.K." status just may be repealed. Again, submissions can be humorous or um . . . or not. It will be interesting to see what you may come up with for the precocious little egg.
Anyway, if you want to learn more about M.A.S.K. and their foes, V.E.N.O.M., or you already know all about them and want to take a trip down memory lane, the links below won’t steer you wrong. "Illusion is the Ultimate Weapon"
