hi all, couple of questions here........wondering if any of you guys might have some ideas
first up, how might one make stiff, spikey hair? I'm part way through building a RedXII balaclava mask (pics when I finish foaming), and it's all going pretty well, but I'm really not sure how to get his hair to stand on end. on the offchance you DON'T all already, know, I'm talking about this chappy
As you can see, he has a good deal of sticking up hair....I've already got hold of some synthetic hair extensions/pony tails, I just need to know how to fix it up. PVA glue (white "school glue") is a possibility, I've used it before with a wire core, and it kinda works, but isn't very durable or neat (or waterproof.....this is the UK, there's no garuntee it won't rain). So, any ideas? no brand names for glues BTW, just descriptions, chances are that unless you're in the UK it's called something different for me.
Secondly, I'm really keen to make more heads, but I can't draw for toffee. I needs designs! However, I'm loathe to use other peoples characters as the basis for stuff I make (except for major commercial characters like Red, who I'm making as a personal suit only, not for sale) 'cause, well, it's just not right to do it without permission. But I have SO many things I want to do, and change my mind so often, that contacting each artist individually isn't that practical. So really I'm after a picture resource of good quality, clean anthro art, mid level realism, to use for suit designs, which the artists won't mind me using, even if the suits are made for sale. It's probably a bit much to ask, so chances are I'll have to just use photo references for generic and personal suits, and wait for comissions to start coming in before I get to use drawn art.........
