Gryphon Studios has changed its' business liscence title, and website to "Artslave Productions".
The new website is here: www.artslave.biz
Sorry for any inconvinience this may cause.
P.S: The next time someone opens a business, please check to ensure no one else has a similar title already. Changing tax liscences is a hassle. *Coughs at someone indiscreetly*
EDIT: Sorry guys, my wording was a little awkward, let me rephrase (and thank you to Fatkraken, he seemed to dechipher what I was trying to say the best!):
I have short pile fur, which is already on my fursuit head - but for future reference and for my own purposes on the head I have now - I was wondering how you sort of 'moulded' the fur around things like eyebrows and cheeks so they really stood out. I've tried cutting out a specific pattern for each foam part, cut out where I wanted the seams to go specifically, but it always seems to 'cover up' and not 'stand out' where I want it to.
The short pile I have now is rather cheap and has bad backing with big holes, so I see what the problem was with the hot glue messing up the right side of the fur when I tried to 'tack' it down to the places I wanted it to stay. I will continue on future projects with the 'knit back' fur Kraken spoke about, he one with give that allows for a small amount of stretch.
I was also wondering about how you fur a jaw. All attempts I've made have either erased my foamed head's cute smile entirely, or made 'mouth wrinkles' because I was trying to make it a moving jaw but needed excess fur for the jaw to open it seemed. Any suggestions on furring jaws specifically? I'd love a tutorial on how to do that itself, either I'm doing the steps wrong or I've sized things improperly, but I never knew how to smoothly attach headfur to jawfur and jawfur to neckfur without it looking like franken-suit.
Thanks everybody, I hope I cleared things up a bit XD; Sorry for my bizarre conglomerate-question before!
Just curious what happened to my post ?
Alrighty. For any fabric manufacturers out there, Please! Make a line of GOOD QUALITY short, dense, fluffy pile fur, maybe half an inch pile length, in a range of colours.
In other words, does anyone know of a place that does this? I mean, it should be a staple line at most fur retailers, but it doesn't seem to happen. I can find every colour of the rainbow in HORRIBLE quality, but I refuse to buy anything that's matted or feels yucky, or that you can see the backing of through the fur (unless it's a desirable effect).
CR's 'short pile' range is comparable in quality to the toy fur we have around here, IE the stuff I refuse to use. Has anyone else had this problem? I'm almost afraid to order anything from them again because I've heard of the drop in quality.
... Is it just me or is there an all-round drop in fur quality lately? Also, does anyone know a place that actually sells a good colour range in short pile furs? I'd REALLY love to know if they exist.
