I dont normally finish heads from other artist nor do i fur heads for people, this was a special case only.
First Lion mask and im very excited with the results and hope to take on more in the future ^-^
Had fun with the pose since I havnt done one like this before, some stuff is a little off I think but otherwise it came out ok. I'm really happy with completion times for my latest work, I'm getting faster while still being able to produce the same quality.

...well, sort of! All of these are handsewn, the snow leopard is 28 linear feet of seams, the red panda is 25, and I never measured the raccoon >w< That's about half a bodysuit worth, and many many hours of hand sewing!
They all still need belt loops, but I'm done for today!
(I would have airbrushed a couple more, but apparently fireworks are legal here, and people behind and next to me have been setting them off all day >.< I grew up in Phoenix, so that sound=gunshots to me, and makes me very jumpy...)
Fits a 22" inch initially but it can be heat formed to fit up to a 24" head. The nose CAN be used for the finished head, it sticks out far enough and is completely textured. Otherwise it can be popped out and replaced with a silicone nose or something, which I also can make. ^^
Will fit a cut down med cougar jawset
I can sell these two different ways: Cut and uncut. Either right out of the mold, or cut out like this one.
I've seen many many digitigrade legs/fursuits, some have looked amazing but all too often I see people suffering from the same problem; incorrect padding. So I decided to show you a breakdown of how my digi-legs in my WindWolf fursuit work.
Be aware though that this isn't the definitive way to make digi-legs though as there are many other ways that can work well, this is just the method I have been taught and the method that I have seen good results from. I hope this little spur-of-the-moment tutorial can be helpful to you in making your own fursuit!
Showing the progress made on the Gold Wolf 'Kitsune's head; this is using my brand new k9 resin blank, and I replaced the nose with a medium silicone k9 nose, installed 4cm 3D LED eyes with apoxie eyelids, and a wolf taxidermy jawset from vandykes that has been cut down to fit. A fan is also installed in the muzzle area behind the nose to bring in extra air so plenty of ventilation and good vision as well! You can see exactly where the person looks out from this shot.
