Camaskassi as a Warrior 

FancyJ: “Hello Camaskassi it is such a pleasure for me to feature you. Could you tell me a little bit about the mystery behind Camaskassi?”

Camaskassi: “Thank you, I chose the name CAMASKASSI mixing MASK in the middle meaning almost covered. I have always enjoyed superheroes, villains, and wrestlers because they hide their identity making the mystery of their character exciting. If superheroes took their masks it would just lose the curiosity and magic. Since I can’t be a superhero, I decided to become an artist that creates superheroes for everyone who wants to remain mysterious including myself.”

FancyJ: “I noticed you chose a warrior for your personal insane portrait. Can you tell me why you didn’t choose a superhero?”

Camaskassi: “I feel like superheroes are more imaginary than realistic. Not that I have anything against superheroes, they are awesome and I happened to be a huge fan of Marvel Comics, DreamWorks, and several Anime films. I just think of myself as a fighter with honor, humility, and strength. I wanted to portray that into my choice of character.”

FancyJ: “You have an artistic name, but what is your slogan?”

Camaskassi: “Disguise yourself in a world of masquerades.”

FancyJ: “I like that, it makes a lot of sense. What inspired you to start making these fantasy style photo transformations?”

Camaskassi: “I actually made a portrait for a family member first because they wanted to hide their identity, then I realized that quite a lot of people feel that way especially with all those egg accounts on twitter. So, I started making artistic portraits thinking about how many people have boring plain looking profile photos, or just not using their photo at all!”

FancyJ: “Yes, that is quite true! Did you think that it would become as popular as it got to be?”
Camaskassi: “No, I never thought it would go this far at all! I liked creating insane portraits for random people, then one day… BANG!”

FancyJ: “So, when you say: “Bang”, does this mean you are receiving a lot of interest?

Camaskassi: “Incredibly yes, I couldn’t believe the response I got it was mind blowing, now I barely have time for myself, lol! On average I receive anywhere from 10-15 portrait requests a week, right now I am a bit behind with 50+ needing to be done in less than a month. It is literally insane, like my portraits.

FancyJ: “What do people generally send you when they order?”

Camaskassi: “Actually people usually will send me a portrait and a googled photo saying they want to be this. That is the norm.”

FancyJ: “What is the funniest or weirdest request you have received?”

Camaskassi: “Actually there was a man that requested to be a mustache monkey, that cracked me up a bit!”

FancyJ: “What kind of requests do you regularly get?”

Camaskassi: “Things I think I can’t possibly do, then I try to do it and it doesn’t come out too bad! Honestly, people request some pretty crazy stuff. I rarely get any orders that are normal, but I guess that is why it is called insane portraits! I have had requests that I wonder what they are thinking at times, such as a flamingo, a hello kitty doll, a scarecrow gangster, a viking, a checkerboard, Barbosa from Pirates of the Caribbean, Root from Guardians of the Galaxy, and a request from a pet owner that was a little weird, but turned out pretty good!”

Root  
FancyJ: “When you said checkerboard I was trying to imagine that for a second. Those are a bit on the wild side! What are some requests that you basically would say, NOT GOING TO HAPPEN?!”

Camaskassi: “Probably a full nude photo, lots of blood/gore, or a huge group photo. Yes, that just wouldn’t be possible!”

FancyJ: “Has anyone of your customers requested too much?”

Camaskassi: “Yes, actually someone recently requested 6 insane portraits at once. I take customers as first come first serve, so it can get busy quickly for me. Overall people are pretty good about not asking for too many over the top details.

FancyJ: “Whoa, nice Wolverine! Do you find it hard to keep up, being that you are a one man show so to speak?”
Camaskassi: “At times I feel a bit overwhelmed, but when I finally see the finished portrait I feel better about it. It feels great when I get positive feed back as well, it keeps me pumped and willing to go further!”

FancyJ: “Have you had to deal with any critics?”

Camaskassi: “I think my worse critic is myself, I seek perfection, I can’t go further until I am happy with my portraits. I hope I never have to deal with criticism, but I guess I would try to see the view from another perspective.”

FancyJ: “If someone wants to transform their photo into something mysterious, how do they go about requesting one, and what are the costs involved?”

Camaskassi: “Anyone can send an order request to my direct email or to my manager, who receives payment on my behalf. Due to my busy schedule it has been hard to keep track. I require a clear photograph, no cut off body parts, not too close, and never blurry or pixelated. I generally charge $25. and up through PayPal, depends on details and if they request a full background. The biggest request is to be patient, it takes 10-15 days for me to work on just one, especially a skin portrait.”

Spiderman Skins

  
FancyJ: “Can you break down the categories for everyone? What is a skin exactly?”

Camaskassi:” Sure, I get that question a lot. Basically there are categories to make it easy for people to order a portrait. Skins are normally wild animals, reptiles, and sea creatures. You can also choose a skin of a favorite character and Jewels as well. When I skin a portrait I keep the person visible while adding fur, lines, scales, and other details. They still look like themselves, but also look like whatever character they chose to be…
(Here is a before and after to show what Camaskassi is referring to!)

Joker Skin

Heavy Skin Leopard and Light Skin Tiger  

…I create light and heavy skins, the lighter one’s are to allow more of the person to be seen, the heavier one’s are to hide the person as much as possible, but still keeping the shape of their face, their eyes, and their mouth. Skin reptiles and tigers are the most requested portraits, but I have had a surprising amount of people asking for Pop Art and Rainbow Electricity DJ portraits.”

(Here are some examples of the portraits Camaskassi mentioned above.)

Pop Art  

Rainbow DJ Electricity

FancyJ: “Wow, that is amazing, it must be extremely tedious work! I admire your dedication it probably isn’t as easy as it looks.”

Camaskassi: “Thank you, it can be hard at times, as well as time consuming, but the final result is worth every moment.”

FancyJ:” Is there anyone out there maybe a fan or customer you would like to shout out or thank before I let you go?”

Camaskassi: “There are a few people I would like to mention who have greatly supported me from the beginning. The first person would be KYNGSOLO, who I stole her portrait from and she seemed to forgive me. Lol! She was my first portrait and it inspired me to take a leap. Donjo who I designed a name logo, and spiderman for has been a great support. Jennie who has supported me on all my social sites and continues to show a lot of kindness. David aka PU is probably the craziest person out there, he shares my portraits everywhere and as I am working the notifications basically sound like a non stop ringer, thank you man. Big Thanks to the most supportive beautiful lady FancyJ London who has helped me believe in my potential and has done a great job a my manager, I highly recommend her. Lastly to my many fans that have made my head swell up pretty big, you guys are great!”-Camaskassi

FancyJ: “I am blushing over here, thank you! I decided to back you, because what you artistically create needs to be noticed. It is a way for so many to break free from their shells, while being whoever they have always dreamed of being. It is unique, fun, and most of all mysterious. I am honored to be part of your journey.”
