i'll be attending dragon con this september, and one of the days i'm going at a faun/satyr critter. i don't have the funds nor time (or willpower, honestly) to do full digigrade legs, so i'm going for something kind of mid-way? i'm hoping to make digigrade/padded shorts; basically just deer haunches? i did a very quick sketch of what i'm hoping to achieve here. i don't know how much sense it makes, so i have another reference here of what is similar to what i am going for, i just want them to be more... haunch-like? i have the feet/hooves all sorted out, so that's not an issue.
so, three questions i guess.
1. roughly how much fur would be needed to make this? (will be using mongolian shag fur; from hip to bottom of knee, my legs are around 17-18 inches)
2. what recommendations would anyone have for padding/filling the shorts?
3. does anyone have any tutorials/references on making this particular kind of piece?
sorry for all the writing/questions and i hope some of this made sense!! if it didn't, i'd be more than happy to clarify anything!!
