    Look at that!! You've got so much done!

    Not too late to make a DTD, put your body suit on it, re-pin/sew and tailer it that way c;

    There is no need for a DTD when you have the actual body of the person there. If you want to make is smaller just turn it inside out and put in on that way and mark where you want to bring it in (Safety pins, or just chalk would work)
    Just make sure when you cut out where you marked to add a bit for your seam allowance :)
    Since you are using it for your own body you don't need to make a dummy of your own body.

    Havig a dtd makes things so much easier. It is possible to use measurements and such but I've done that (with the suit in my avatar) and decided I want to use dtds for future suits so I can easily examine it being worn.

    Thanks Misomie! :D Im really enjoying working on it :) I just hope I have time to keep improving my suit making skills once school starts back up.

    Ill probably end up making a DTD at some point anyway so ill probably try to make one in the next few days to get some practice working with it :)

    For right now, im trying footpaws... Im not sure what it is, but something just isnt right. It's still not done yet (obviously), but I've been working on this one paw for quite awhile now and it just looks off to me. Im ok with scrapping this one, but id prefer to salvage it if i can. Do you guys have any advice on how to fix it? or if it isn't recoverable, what can I do better next time? I tried to get a bunch of angles, but if you guys want some more photos, I can take more :p

    like how hard would it be to make just the head?

    Hmm! Maybe you can round the toes out a little more? right now they're long and skinny. I think you're going for a cute friendly foxy vibe. Think of bugs bunny toes. They have a lot of height and they're big and round. I love the shape done in this tutorial. http://fursuit.livejournal.com/4868378.html?thread=54547482

    Alright! I managed to make the suit a bit more slim and it fits much better now :) I also started fresh on a new head and its coming along nicely! (Yay progress!)

    I'd make the muzzle pointer (cause coyote) if I was you. It being bulky looks more like a dog or wolf. Pointy snouts for foxes and coyotes helps define them. Otherwise you're doing great. The pictures of the feet never loaded for me so I can't give advice on them.

    You suit is looking awesome!! but with your feet paws I think they are too narrow, in proportion with your foot if you are trying to get a more toony look, i would make them wider in the toe part so that it will look more proportionate with the rest of your suit! :)

    Alrighty! I think I finally finished shaping the head. I finished up the cheeks and added eyebrows and ears. What do you guys think? :)

    So I made some eyes! Tried to go for a follow me effect and I think it turned out pretty well! :D

    (not only am i an amazing photographer and videographer, I also make incredible gifs! :V)

    I shaved the eyebrow ridges down a bit because they were massive and Im gunna bring the bottom jaw down a bit to give him more of a smile. Then its time for fleecing! What do you guys think? :)

    If you want a smile, I would add a bit more foam to the cheeks. At the top, a little under where the cheek meets the eyes. When you smile that part if your face rounds out a bit :)
    Also, you may want to tilt where the nose is going to be a bit more at an angle. So it's not going to point straight out. It looks awesome though. I can't wait to see it finished.
    You said you are going to use fleece? Is that for the whole thing or did you get fur too?

    Expressions have definitely been the hardest part for me so thats super helpful! :D Do you mean tilt the snout up or down for where the nose will attach?
    The fleece is just to line the inside of the mouth and stuff. Im using the same fur as I did for the body suit :)
    Unfortunately, after saturday i wont be able to work on it for about 2 weeks :( Hopefully i can have it done by the end of september though :)

    I am talking about the flat part at the front of the muzzle. I would have it so the nose tilts a little more back to the head. So it faces up in the air. The nostrils shoul be facing straight out. So I would tilt to so that happens.
    Expressions are totally the hardest part lol. Just look at yourself in a mirror and have a straight face--then smile and see what muscles in your face change and add the foam to the same places on the mask. :)
    okay good lol. I figured you would be using the same fur.
    It's turning out great!!
