Unhappy Ryuk from Death Note mask.

Hello fellow Cosplayers. Does anyone have any ideas as of how to make a Ryuk mask. I already made a plaster cast of my face but the clay building part of it I'm totally stumped on. I can't make it...at all. Period. I am terrible. So if you have any ideas don't hesitate to post!

well if you already have the mask then you could just use the clay to build up certain features on the face. Like his cheekbones or his chin.
Just get a ton of reference pics together and I'm sure it'll come to you. =]

That is what I'm trying to do but one there aren't that many reference pictures, and then I'm not very artistic in that way. I can't do clay.
:/

This photo is old, I've since recast in clay and resculpted the head since my first mold was too flawed. But it should give you some ideas.

The problem with reference photos for Ryuk is that the bugger is different every time he is drawn. My chief reference photo was the one on the inside cover of the first manga...You should just pick one you like, and focus on it more than any other. To be more specific, I purchased the Death Note art book, which is gorgeous. I also bought a bunch of the prints in poster form and hung them up all over my sculpting station.
