Steve has done an amazing 10 part video series on the making of a planet of the Apes Gorilla Mask to add to the great selection of masks available from his website, the process and his skills are outstanding, I hope you enjoy the series as much as I did.

I have personally just purchased and received a POTA Chimp mask from him and will post some pics of that piece of art shortly
