Sonar WIP Turnaround by CanineHybrid Sonar WIP Turnaround by CanineHybrid
Sonar- Creature Suit Design by CanineHybrid

Sonar's Facebook - Sonar's FurAffinity

A quick animated GIF to share my progress on the head. Base construction phase is complete!

I have just uploaded a video of Sonar to my YouTube, talking a little about the project and demonstrating me wearing it. I could also use your help to finish bringing this critter and many future projects to life, please check out my Patreon if you enjoy and wish to continuing seeing my work and get some super cool things in return :3

Is that grey fleece? What's that used for? More stability?

The character's adorable! I love how in the video the spines have some movement it totally adds to the cuteness. I've been trying to figure out how to do a similar type movement with a character of my own.Either way I can't wait to see it after it's furred.

Why do you use different kinds of foam? 
Reply
:iconcaninehybrid:
CanineHybrid Featured By Owner Oct 21, 2014  Professional General Artist
Different kinds of foam gives you different results used for different purposes. For example, the cream colored foam is reticulated foam to allow for better airflow, but it's not dense or near as self supporting like the green upholstery foam is- so I use that for the main construction and details.

Great job! I wish I was as good as you are! I might sound stupid for saying yhi, but how do you get a smile like the one on your head? I have tried before on my heads but they turn out weird.

Thanks a bunch! Just takes practice :3

This is honestly the first time I've ever done a smile on one of my heads (since this is the first one without a moving jaw so I could sculpt a better expression). I simply just planned for it in my patterns, which aided me in placing the foam down properly to have it fall into place to match how I drew it on my reference sheet. I guess a lot of luck and an understanding of the 3D form helps! I don't think there's much of a real trick to it. Just gotta make sure it stands out enough in the furring stage (since here I've drawn a bit of marker in the corner of the smile onto the foam to make it stand out more right now). Also remember that a smile will affect the shape of the eyes/cheeks of the character (big thing in facial animation, which is my background), so make sure those match the expression too! It's hard to make it readable from multiple angles, make sure it's exaggerated enough to be visible from anywhere. It's harder to get it working in the front view with a big old muzzle in the way. You can see how exaggerated the corners of the mouth are on Sonar- they turn up quite a lot and they travel out along the cheeks a bit.

Quick question and you are probably asked this a lot but where do you get your foam? Is it from a well known franchise store (Hobby lobby, Joanne fabrices, micheals. etc) or from a small business/online?
