    Critique: Wolverine head base

    Okay, so... Hi, I am trying this for the first time. Feel free to be brutal (but somewhat constructive preferably) , I can't be discouraged from doing things I'm awful at. Does this look like a bear/wolverine? It's very rough, as I'm sure you can tell. Haven't even put eye holes in it yet...

    second ever head base, advice appreciated

    Heya, this is only my second ever head base and I would really like some veteran advice. I already know he needs more foam for fluffy cheeks, a bigger smile, and smaller ears, But is there anything else I can do to make him more aesthetically nice to look at or more wolf-like?

    Full digi suit or half digi suit?

    I’m working on my very first fursuit! They are a space themed Luna moth named Starry Eyed (or just Starry for short.) Very exciting stuff. I’ve come to the place where I have my headbase, legs, and wings all done and ready for fur, and was planning for this character to be a fullsuit. Now...

    Making my first head

    I've been wanting a fursuit for some years now, but it seems like it'd be less expensive to make it on my own (expensive regardless, of course). I wanna be able to support my favorite creators one day, though! I think I'm going to document my progress here, but in the mean time, does anyone...

    Being more open about furry stuff with my partner

    I have been in a relationship with a wonderful person for about two and a half years. Things are going great aside from one minor snag. I am a furry and she knows this. I don’t own a fursuit, but I do have these dragon scale crochet gloves that I wear around her a bunch. She likes them, says...

    What makes a well-constructed suit?

    Hello! I'm a beginning fursuit maker, with maybe only three suits under my belt. As I progress, it's becoming more and more important to me that the suits I make are comfortable to the people who wear them! So, I need your help: what makes a good suit, in your opinion? From bread-and-butter...

    Cheap fursuits in North Carolina?

    I have a 16 year old friend who wants a fursuit of either a fox or a cat, but his budget is low. He's trying to keep around $50... any suggestions? Another question... what would happen if a 16 year old went to a fur con without a guardian? Would he be allowed? Do they ask for ID at cons? (If...

    Critique: Unusual body suit crafting idea - would this even work??

    I currently own a partial fursuit (that I made myself), and have been thinking hard about making my first bodysuit. But I've had some (early) unusual ideas on exactly * how * to make it. Usually when I look up how to make a body suit, it's basically crafting a homemade onezee with some fur...

    Thoughts on this reference design?

    I'm hoping to start building my first fursuit once my paycheck comes in, and I wanted to get some feedback on my old reference sheet. I'm planning on redrawing it to make some adjustments, so I'd like to know what looks good, what doesn't look good, potential problems I might run into, etc...
