The Three Masks 'The Mask' by TimeLordParadox The Three Masks 'The Mask' by TimeLordParadox
This drawing features three different versions of the Mask (From the Mask, an artifact that grants the inner desires to anyone who wears it)

The first is the original Mask of the comic strip, a jade, african mask that turns whoever wears it into a psychotic murderer with the nick name 'Big Head' because it gives the wearer a big green head.

The second one is the classic Mask (Loki Mask), as seen in the 1994 movie staring Jim Carrey, this Mask is similar to the original but toned down so its only as dangerous as the guy wearing it.

The third is the cartoon version of the second Mask for the Cartoon series that followed the movie. If you look at the first two you can see that the animators probably made the cartoon masks design a mixture of the them both.

I like all of The Mask designs, but the comic one has less interest to me,but that dosen't matter as long as we still get to see Big-Head.

The Comic Mask was good for a different vision of how the mask was supposed to work. Instead of being as dangerous as the wearer any wearer of the Mask would eventually become a raging loony who'd have no problem with killing someone out right. Though I do prefer the Movie Mask over the comic and cartoon series.

I always liked the movie design more than the other but the cartoon is actually what got me started on the Mask.
Never liked the original comic design.

Gotta love the simple lines of the cartoon mask... though guess thats because of the fact it had to be animated whereas the movie mask was a simple prop.

Yeah I agree. The first Mask was just based off the basic African jade mask. For the movie they really thought about it's back story and gave it a more iconic design based on it.

I remembered seeing the film when I was young, I couldn't remember much about it years later when I saw the cartoon but it was because I had seen the film that made me want to watch the cartoon series. :)
