mitsu!

(no subject)

Hi everyone!

I'm in the process of making a new head for my partial, and attempting a moving jaw for the first time. I'm really concerned about screwing it up. I've looked up most of the tutorials for doing it online, and I'm pretty sure I understand how to make the moving jaw, but I could really use a couple of up-close, detailed pictures of what the "hinge" part of the jaw looks like, at each stage of making a head. I'd just like something to reference while I work, and visual aids are always great. Some pictures of the inside of the mouth would really help too. Can anyone help me out and point me in the right direction?

Thanks!

First fursuit head progress!

Well, I finally got the thing carved out and the bottom jaw attached. Woot! Look at those ears! They are perfectly gigantic! The muzzle is a little tiny bit crooked which I noticed in the pics but I shall fix that. The jaw works perfectly too. So here is Inali. Species: Xelorian. Now for the furring and for pics!

Opinions please?

While I am waiting on the teal fur for my head to arrive, I'm going to go ahead and start my second head and this time, I am going to sell it. :) Since it's going to be going on furbid, should I make it into a fox or a husky? There are so many foxes in the fandom which is why I have a better shot at selling it but there are also a lot of huskies. What do you guys think?

First fursuit head

Alright. I finally got off my lazy butt and started work on a fursuit. So far, the head is nearly complete -- the fur needs a bit of touching-up in a few places, and I still need to do the insides of the mouth. I am NOT looking forward to that.

I was just wondering if I could get some comments and critiques on what I have done so far. There's about six hours or so of work into it, mostly because I tried a few techniques for basing the head.

Well. Enough rambling. Here it is. Hope you don't mind link form.

(Note: I don't think I understand LJ cuts, so I'm very sorry if this didn't cut. But I cannot get the cursed things to work... even after reading the FAQ.)
