That Dear Delight by ValOne - Title

STORY BEHIND

It was the first time I showed the world my new avatar and custom mask that I'll be using in my digital artwork.

The mask was born out of concept art that I drew and sent to Tim Shatnyy
Tim took my concept and made it sublime.
We iterated on it several times until we got the right design
with the right balance.
The mask is inspired by deer antlers, the French countryside and Miyazaki movies.

Then I contacted an artist that I like: Anastasia Pilepchuk to make it in real life.

 She suggested several mask shapes, and once the base was chosen, she began to craft. It was a real pleasure to see the mask come to life step by step!
I'll go into more detail below.
