When I read about the contest the first thing that popped into my head was werewolf! Full fursuit with muzzle, fangs, and claws. Everything is hand-sewn.
Materials: Eyes: His "contact lenses" are painted plastic (paint the front with sharpie markers, the back with white acrylic paint). A werewolf is just not a werewolf if its eyes don't change.
Muzzle: Hand-sculpted polystyrene (knife and wood-burning tool), muslin fabric, glued on loose hair fibers, painted polymer clay for nose and fangs. It is attached to a full head harness made of muslin.
Paws: His claws are painted polymer clay and are glued into old socks. The fur was sewn around it.
Fur: Hand-sewn faux fur. And yes, this guy sheds like a sheepdog!!!
Took 1 week to sew everything together and is my first time using faux fur, making a fursuit, and mixing sculpture and fabric directly together.
Once an feared emperor, he intended to rule Telara. After numerous battles won, he found an opponent on his level. The emperor was led to a cave where the dragon would not fly, right foot off the dragon was cuttet, the emperor fell. Once in the ground, the last hit, right in his head. He was thrown into darkness and doom, forgotten in the unknown.
But now, with the rift, he returned, seeking for blood...
This one has definatly been the most on and off project I've ever done.
Seriously it's gone through about 10+ versions, all being made to some sort of quality.
Originally I started this picture about a year ago but dropped it due to my inspiration/motivation for it dying out.
And now it's happened again so I didn't have anything else to add to this, so in my eyes it's done.
Also thanks to for giving me some critique on the image; much appreciated!
Terragen 0.9 base render ftw, Photoplop for the rest.
Thanks for viewing
Edit: Thank you all for your support and thank you ^nighty for the feature !
