All new fursuit makers, are you ready?Something that has been going around in my head for the past week as I've watched a ton of new makers jumping out of the woodworks, eager to take on commissions. Making suits is great and can be a great hobby, but for those that are wanting to continue making them beyond the Hobby mark, ask yourself these questions...
1. Do I have the time to dedicate to this?
On average I will work 12-16 hour 'shift' days making suits, 6 days a week. I will take a day or two off to loosen up and relax, but perhaps ever 2 weeks or so. To keep up with the demand and the work load it takes a ton of my time, often sacrificing fun events such as the movies or a bon fire.
2. Do you have the space?
I started working off of my bed, then out of the spare bedroom. Small projects don't take up space, but larger ones certainly do. Do you have the space needed for furs, tools, cutting, sewing, and other things of the sort?
3. Do you have the dedication?
Fursuit making can not only be rewarding, but it can also be
Before you make a suitThings to think about before making a suit costumeBefore you make a suit2 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
Here's a whole list of questions of possibilities that I'd highly recommend anyone take a look at and answer if they plan on making a suit. It might bring up some problems to think about before they happen during the process of making a costume.
I'd copy/paste and print this off and answer to any questions that apply to your future project.
1. Do you relate to the creatures physical traits in any way?
2. Do you have any physical problems? ( allergies, loss of breath, heart problems, flexibility, claustrophobia, bowel/bladder problems, etc)
3. Where will be an air vent(s)?
4. Where will the vision be?
5. Can you hear well in the suit?
6. Can people hear you clearly if you should speak?
7. How will the suit be taken apart in case of quick relief?
8. In what rooms or areas can you travel in your suit?
9. How heavy will some pieces of the suit be?
1. Can you sit on the floor in the suit?
2. Can you sit in
Suiting Prep: Your fursuit and you!Was talking with another maker and we started chatting about suiting experiences and some of the not so nice things that follow. When you hit a con you usually see all the fluff first before some of the stink hits you. We discussed seeing suits that looked real mangy, smelled horrid, or just needed a good burning due to miscare. While you take care of yourself, your suit needs care too!!Suiting Prep: Your fursuit and you!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Here's how to keep you smelling really awesome at a con out of suit:
1. SHOWER. No one wants to smell your funk, no matter how 'natural' you're going for. Soap, water, scrub, repeat if need be.
2. Deodorant. Kill the BO where it really starts. It's a serious put off when you can smell the suiter before seeing them but its even worse if the person is out of suit.
3. Toothbrush/toothpaste: Fresh breath is also important. Keep them pearly whites white
4. Pack several sets of CLEAN clothes in a SEPARATE container than your fursuit stuff!! Don't wear the same stuff over and over again, that's just... nas

Okay for a recap all the shit with Dally they had sex behind fen's back (Dally was lead to believe that she had concent as she asked her husbands permission and he said it was okay).

Guys, guys, guysChildren, there's no reason to get upset about a dumb little thing like someone tracing/referencing your art. Everyone does it, whether it be for practice or cause they liked the pose or whatever. Even my own sketchbooks are chock full of art that I've referenced from other people. I'm not gonna go around posting it as if it were something I came up with myself, but even if I wanted to, would anyone be able to stop me?Guys, guys, guys9 months ago in Personal More Like This
And you know why? Because you can't copyright poses something like poses. Not only is that an absolutely ridiculous concept to begin with, but you have to realize that with thousands and thousands of years of artists, there isn't going to be a single pose out there that someone hasn't already drawn a character in. No matter how original you think your picture is, pose-wise, I can guarantee you that someone out there has already drawn the same exact thing. Now, I'm not advocating tracing someone's art and claiming it as something that you came up wi

New commission price journalON HOLDNew commission price journal2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Rules for commissioning
- I'd prefer it if you pay before I finish, but if I trust you I can let you pay after. However, if someone EVER uses this system to get a free commission ALL commissions will have to be payed beforehand from that moment on, no matter if I trust you or not.
- All persons who have their characters involved in the pic are allowed to use it (on their ID, page, webcam, icon, ...) but I'd like it if credit is given. By credit I mean like, either mentioning my full username with no spelling mistakes or linking back to my profile/the original deviation.
- If you commission a lineart you can tell me whether you allow other people to use it as well or not.
What I will draw
- Any animal of any kind, any fantasy/mythological animal, any made up species, Pokémon, Digimon, ponies, Neopets, etcetera.
- Humans. I'm not good at them but I'm willing to draw them if you want me to. This also counts for stuff like Homestuck etcetera even though I don't k

Willora is a sacred hidden place that is located in a remote area on Earth. No humans are yet aware of its presence. It was not originally a place on Earth, but a small planet far from it. The Langurhali did not yet exist, only the tree and a few unknown creatures.
The planet was an absolute good, harmonious and perfect in its environment, with creatures that coexisted together and knew nothing of violence or danger, there was never any bad weather and no carnivores to speak of. Willora was efficient, flourishing, peaceful, and far ahead of Earth, while also being very similar to the very beginning of its existence. Though, unlike Earth, its creatures only grew more intelligent and aware of the importance of selflessness, preservation and peace.
The giant Willow was the first plant to grow on this planet, and thus was the oldest, largest and strongest tree. The giant star is said to have provided a kind of energy that cannot be found on Earth; a kind of life energy which gives
