Make Your Own Mask
Are you looking for a costume that’s quick and unique? Just download my printable skull mask template and personalize it in Adobe Illustrator Draw, Adobe Photoshop Sketch, Adobe Illustrator CC, or Adobe Photoshop CC. The download includes one blank template, one template with basic skull features already drawn in, and finished examples of how I decorated the template.
(Note: To work with the file in Illustrator, open it in Draw on an iPad first and then send the file to Illustrator from there, using the share button at top right of the Draw interface.)
I'd love to see what you come up with. If you post your mask on Instagram or Twitter, tag @AdobeCreate so I don't miss it.
In the screen-capture videos below (no sound), you’ll see snippets of me using Draw on the iPad to set up, draw, and decorate the template. Much of the process in Sketch is similar.
Tip: The downloadable template file is 8.5"x11". For a printable format from Draw or Sketch, you can save it as a JPG, or export it directly to Illustrator or Photoshop. Before you do so, make sure that the blueline guide is on top; that shows you where to cut out the mask. Use a glue stick to connect the tabs, and you're ready to go.
