It's been a long time since my last entry! I had a blast at NordicFuzzCon 2014 and I'm already looking forward to the next NFC... :) I will write more about NFC later, I've been too lazy to get my pictures in order.
After NFC I started to work hard on a fursuit partial commission. It's a toony husky head for Twixs on FA, and it's the first toony head I've ever made. It was both challenging and fun, but I still prefer building realistic heads. I guess I made my record in building fursuit heads, it took me about 3 weeks to finish Alma instead of the months I've wasted with mu previous suits. x3
All started with a reference sheet. I drew it as a commission to Twixs. It was interesting to do since it's based on her dog!
After the reference picture was finished I started working on the base. It got done rather painlessly and I was happy with the over all shape and all.
|No I don't like Lapin Kulta or any other beer. It's an old shirt from work and I tend to wear old shirts when I work with fursuits. The foam and faux fur stick to anything! The nose was sculpted with Apoxey Sculpt.|
I was surprised how easy it was to fur this head because usually I've had a lot of problems with it. The pieces of fur are sewn together and glued on the head. The markings were quite challenging to do, but everything went well. :D
|After the first trim. I've cleaned all the edges around eyes, nose and mouth.|
After finishing the head I added a neck piece and made a tail and hand paws for the suit. Alma got finished in time for Twixs and was shipped to her after my little photoshoot.
Meet Alma the Husky!
|My dog Olia absolutely loved this fursuit. She just had to hug and kiss it. x3|
