This is just to show the stages of how I make my masks.
I found and moddified

to use as a base template.
Stage 2) Basic line design and color.
I usually use MS paint to come up with the line design. After which I use Corel PHOTO Paint to add color to the desired areas.
Stage 3) Depth and texture.
After finishing with color go to the menu bar at the top and go to Effects > Texture > Plastic. From there it's a matter of personal preference. I usually go with "Highlight :1, Depth: 15, Smoothness: 75, Light Direction: 270, and Light Color: White." But like I said personal preference.
Stage 4) RAGE! (Optional)
*I'd recommend saving a separate file before this.* If you want to add a feeling of rage and anger to your mask then go back up to your menu bar and go to Effects > Distort > Wet Paint. I would recommend setting Wetness anywhere around - 40, and Percent around 80.
And there you have it. Full out explanation on making you're own hollow mask. Here's my gallery of Mask: [link]
