Lots more where this is coming from kids, hang on to your seats. That leaves two others to go.

Ah Liberty's Kids...didn't watch it myself really but heard neat things on the show. I mean usually educational cartoons tend to suck and the only people that I know of that DIDN'T fall under that "curse" by making it feel more like entertainment were Tom Yohe and Albert Barille.

So how does the Mask transport itself here? Well the backstory's a LITTLE different, let's pretend "The Mask" cartoon and "Liberty's Kids" take place in the same timeline with the events of "Comedy of Eras" (where the Mask was found in the creek of colonial Edge City aka Edge Town) have long passed and our friend Sarah Phillips makes a goodwill visit there.

...

Just go with it okay? :iconblankstareplz:

-------------
Today, in the time period known as the American Revolution in our modern day world, we find Sarah, a young British teen girl who's father lives in America, heading out into a place called 'Edge Town' to find out how people in the frontier think about the Revolution and such.

Sarah, being a British citizen, didn't think that highly of the American Revolution, but overtime, she came to understand the ideals and such even through she thinks herself as a citizen of British. However, her 'support' is focusing more on the rebels or Patriots, based on who you were as the war is going on.

Today, as we said before, Sarah is heading into 'Edge Town' in order to learn views on the American Revolution from people of the Frontier. With her was Henri Richard Maurice Dutoit LeFebrve, who snuck abord Sarah's carriage. James wasn't with them since he had another story to report on.

When she arrived on 'Edge Town', she talked to the people about their say on the American Revolution. Needless to say, there a few Loyalists through they kept themselves hidden from view of the Patriots, which number many more in the town. However, she heard about talk that she call 'stuff and nonsense' when they mentioned about a legend of the town.

The legend was that one day a strange man believed to be a warlock appeared and was going to be hanged, but then a green-faced 'demon dog' appeared that turned into a regular canine in which the man turned into a green faced 'hobgoblin' as the legends describe that exposed the real witch which was a strange blue haired female that had the ability to control time. The legend speaks that the 'hobgoblin' turned the witch's magic against her and the people finding out that they were dupped by the witch ran her out of town never to be seen again in which the 'hobgoblin' faded into history and myth.

People think that the 'hobgoblin' appeared because the witch distrubed his home and he came only to get rid of her and if the British came, people are saying that they would be next since they would 'enraged' the 'hobgoblin' and he would use the magic that he had taken from the time witch to make them disappeared. Sarah dismissed that kind of talk as 'nonsense'.

Right now, Sarah can't think of that since she and Henri are running away from a group of men who are Loyalist, people loyal to Britian, into the woods. They just found out a Loyalist plot to take over the government and the armory in town, but they were spotted even through the people didn't get a good look at them.

Henri tells Sarah, in his French accent, "We need to split up! I'll lead them away from you, Sarah!"

Sarah tells Henri, "It is too dangerous, Henri!"

Henri says, with a serious tone, "You zeed to warn the people in the town about the coup, Sarah!" Henri then runs away from Sarah and immediately, leads the Loyalist mob away from them. Sarah runs into another part of the woods in which she trips over something covered by leaves.

Sarah asks, preplexed, "What did I trip over?" Sarah then goes over and overcovers a strange box. Sarah asks, curiously, "Could this be a Native American artifact?" Sarah opens the box to reveal a strange, but familiar green-brown mask inside. Sarah says, looking the mask over, "It looks like a mask used by Native Americans, but I don't recongize the design." However, Sarah immediately takes the mask and decides to head back into town.

That evening, with a guest room, we find Sarah with the mask on a nearby table while she is writing her papers. Henri, as per usual his style, easily manages to get away from the Loyalist and they met up later. They told about the coup to the Patriot leaders of the town, but the Loyalist made their escape and it is feared that they will find their way to a nearby British outpost for help in which the Loyalist 'disabled' the town's defense by taking or destroying all weapons in the town.

The Patriot leaders prepare to have Sarah and Henri to leave in the morning and Sarah is writing solemnly about what happened. Just then a eerie glow comes from nearby in which she looks to see the mask that she picked up glowing with an eerie green glow.

Sarah asks, curiously, "What is this?" Sarah puts the mask into her hands and she examines to the mask closely. Sarah says, a bit preplexed and nervous, "How can this be? Masks don't give off such..." However, she is cut off when the mask is really close to her face in which the mask latches onto her face and becoming like clay and wax, the mask starts to cover her face. Sarah screams as she tries to pull the mask off her face, but with no luck. When the mask covers her face, her body goes into a mini-twister filled with lightning, wind, and thunder that we can see from the wooden cabin window as we leave the wooden that she is staying in.

~~

Hundreds of years into the future, we find Stanley Ipkiss relaxing after what happened with 'The Mask' and Chornos with her time machine.

Just then Peggy Brandt, Ipkiss' reporter friend, bursts into the room with old newspaper articles and she yells out, excitedly, "Stanley, you have got to see this!"

Stanley asks, with a groan, "What is it this time? Does it involve 'The Mask'?"

Peggy says, with a grin, "That's right, Stanley, but you aren't 'The Mask' I'm talking about! I'm talking about a Revolutionary Mask or I should I say 'Maskete'! Peggy drops the old newspaper in front of Stanley and she says, with a grin, "Get a load of this, Stanley!" Stanley looks at the old newspapers which was Ben Franklin's newspaper and he gasps to see a report about a Loyalist coup on 'Edge Town', Edge City back in the colonial days, that was stopped and when they returned from soliders from a hidden base, a strange green-faced female with the American flag in her hands and imprinted on her skirt using strange ';powers' stopped them single handed.

Stanley yells out, stunned, "No way, Peggy!" Stanley looks through another article that a few days later, the same female stopped a group of armed Loyalists in Philadelphia from destroying Ben Franklin's printing press and newspaper in which there was a colored sketched made of her.

Peggy says, with a smile, "I got a few contacts to restore the sketch, Stanley! They called her 'Liberty's Green Angel'!" When Stanley looks at the sketch, she gasps to see none other than Sarah with the American flag in her hands, her dress having the American flag of the time on the skirt portion of her dress, her fingernails are colored the same red on the American flag and the familiar rubber lime green face of 'The Mask' with deep, plump, luscious, and plump colored lips. Peggy says, with a sly grin, "And there were various sightings of her with the last one being at 'Edge Town' when the Consitution was put into place, Stanley."

Stanley says, with a groan while looking at 'The Mask', "It looks like I wasn't the first to use you and have a 'wacky life' because of you, buddy."'

-If I didn't make back-ups, I would have ragequit this picture

-Almost did the old "watercolor" look I had in older pictures to give it that dramatic look. Why the status quo? Well the PC crashed and I didn't save...also the rest of the background would have had a touch up to make sense with the figure so it was better this way. Hints of it are seen on the flag though.

This is just...such a creative concept! Wow, I can't immagine how you'd combine The Mask with Liberty's Kids, but you did a great job at it and I especially like the mini fanfic to go with this! Awesome work, Sarah looks great even though she looks a tad insane ;)

Well to be fair, I didn't draw or commission this. Though I do take full responsibility for sparking the idea of Mask crossovers.

I was asked by an associate to color the picture and I'm somewhat acquainted with the artist to get his okay. The story was also crafted from another associate of mine but I gave a few guidelines ^^;

I have to say that perhaps this, the Kairi/Namine, and the Miranda ones are my favorite with this story being my most favorite story of the bunch (Hinata is also a fave story and art as she is among my fav characters to begin with)!
Out of all the mask adventures possible for what I mentioned above Sarah Phillips is the one I think would prove the most potential, trilling and interesting! Set in a time period where magic was taboo and punishable by a horrible death (with people also mixed on their feelings towards the green faced powered gal thinking that she is either a witch, demon, or angel) and a time of a great war with a character who while on the American side is also has feelings towards the loyistis as well. An upright, kind, and normally serious girl who now wheels a godly great (and wacky) power that's frieghting yet exciting to have, and the protenal villains that due to the time period only she can take down (like time travelers of many differnt species trying to change time, or gods and goddess fighting for the power, and old and new enemies of all (or some) of the Mask users and other major villains and events). I see her as a sort of a person put in a emotional and physical difficult situation of hidding her identity as "Liberty's Green Angel" (or whatever the press, people and villains call her) from her friends and parents in fear of being seen as a freak and rejection (or for their safety). Plus with also a potential love interest that is James that also is her friend and coworker in the newspaper (who probably wants the first scoop of this new Super American hero) tensions could run high (sort of a Clark Kent/Lois Lane tension before Lois knew Clark's secret). If anyone was to find out her secret first (and not instantly) I would say Ben Franklin or Henri would and would work as a helpful cover for her (perhaps Ben helping her with her not knowing that he knows her secret).
I would love to see a comic like this (I would LOVE to make one if it wasn't that I'm terrible at art and have little time to carefully make in (good time periods) comic pages. :(

Before you asked about other characters I think would be great mask users well to not spoil anything to anybody reading this I will put them in a note (this way I can say who, why, story ideas, and if i think of more I will post them without feeling pressured for time).

Thank you very much. When commenting I like to be detailed and also consider many possibilities as well as real world insights and history research covering them all. Based on her time period and her character from the show in addiction to the mask and it's powers and how it works just fit so well together to have a possible epic, wacky, and yet also deeply emotional and psychological moving tale.

To go in-depth works and to go beyond the bonds in the characters and how they behave and could possibility become and the pyscy of it all and growth of character and development and danger is something I look at in all shows including if the show has characters I dislike instead of bashing them or "putting on the bus" trope I would want them to develop and grow into characters I would like and consider the ways it could be possible with time and planning for the right balance in the transformation to make them endearing and thought provoking.

Again thank you for your comment.

I've caught a glimpse of it once or twice, heard it's one of DiC's better works after the Sabrina animated series.

To me the suggestion is a little out of left field but I was glad to color Sarah on the same level as the other girls. When it comes to commissioning girls to Mask, Jokerisdaking's choices sure can surprise me.

I think the most unexpected wearer was Miranda Wright, then he linked me to someone that had Bonkers episodes uploaded so I spent more time feeling like it was 1994 all over again before getting back to coloring the project.

Regarding the last part of your post, I do get curious about what other fans would like see in the future pictures. It just might interest me.

As always, the colors add a welcome depth to the picture. The dress looks especially good! XD

Now I can't help by being mystified by those two blue areas on each side of Sarah, just above the houses... Lakes? In my mind those were just rolling, verdant hills. perspective would be all wrong if those were lakes. :?

MugenKeiji Featured By Owner Sep 16, 2009
It's funny because I really ended up rolling the dice on that one. My thoughts were something like this when I colored it.

"Wait are these two masses, lakes or hills? You know what... they'll be expecting hills and that's too simple. I'm going to ASSUME they're lakes because no one questioned the preview."

What should have been the dead giveaway that they weren't is how I played with the filter to give it a ripple effect and nothing came out right. Yet for variance's sake I was stubborn.

The second I woke up and saw the message, Photoshop was fired up and the error is now corrected.

Much better! Like I mentioned, the perspective was a dead giveaway something was amiss (at least to me). Considering the view of the village below, any lakes that *could* have appeared in the back scene would have been much more flattened in shape to account for the angle.
