Bengal Tiger by LilleahWest Bengal Tiger by LilleahWest
Well this was one complex cutie patootie, it took me ages to do but I am very pleased with the results :)

The pelt is a mix of sewn and airbrushed orange with airbrushed stripes. All the orange fur used is rare as heck and I dearly would like to obtain more of either the 1 inch kind or the 3 inch kind used for the neck, if you can help me obtain more please do let me know!

I studied the heck out of tigers to be sure I represented them well in my "characterized realistic" style (that being realistic in detail but with a touch of "toony" so as not to be too taxidermy real) I paid extra attention to the striping including the fact they have striped upper chests and bellies, which I will admit that adding said stripes made my anthro senses scream in terror at first as most anthro tigers forgo stripes in these areas.
The whiskers are sold by Matrices, and the claws n paw pads came from DVC, otherwise everything else is 100% me from the head carving to the eye painting to the nose n mouth sculpting, to of course the extensive airbrush work.

I AM CURRENTLY OPEN FOR MORE TIGER COMMISSIONS

I want to do a gray tiger, a flame point Siamese tiger, and maybe a strawberry blonde tiger.
More info on the tigers and other specific designs I am open for can be found here lilleahwest.deviantart.com/jou…

in this one in particular since the vision is out mesh painted to match (the bottom of the > shaped mark under the eyes is the bottom of the mesh) vision is actually really good with minimal blind spots, like 80% of normal

Wow that's amazing. You should compare this to your first tiger head. This one looks so real.  It has a lot of expression to it as well it looks so happy.

Supremely executed design, Beastcub!
I am really amazed and a bit envious of the new owner - and tempted to ask my wife if I could commission a fursuit to let you explore your tiger designing skills.  Of course, you probably can guess where that conversation would go!

Same reason as Halloween costumes, Renaissance fair attire, convention cosplay, sports mascots, ect, it is simply fun to dress up in a costume and entertain people.
 
And in my case since I build these things wearing one of these costumes at an event is a way to showcase my skill, people at the local Wizard World Comic Con sure did like my saber tooth, I had hundreds of people ask for a photo with me and lots of giggly kids wanted hugs, it was a really great experience making so many people smile.

Sorry, i didn't mean to bully your art, its really impressive actually! I was just thinking about this thing about people dressing up as furies and stuff. I just dont get it and i so wanna know, because i am interested and not because i wanna judge.

That's oaky. I understand the whole furry thing can be weird, but I was actually making animal costumes and wearing said costumes a full decade before I even heard of the furry fandom, so it is not all that strange to me ^^; fursuits are just large, elaborate, attention grabbing costumes that make a big impression real quick on everyone in its presence and thus up the ante for public performance than say a princess costume.

One of my favorites to perform in has been my Loftwing cosplay, the costume is just so bright, and so big (I can fit people's heads in the mouth) and so dehumanized in shape, it has a strong presence even among other fursuits as it is not your average looking one. And the expression changes based on what angle it is viewed from so I can play up a goofy act or, a cute act, an intimidation act which always gets a good startle and a laugh when I snap my huge beak at someone. Very fun costume to wear.

This just appeared on my front page, though I'm not really interested in the whole fursuit thing.
Out of curiosity, how much does one of these cost? I've heard they can get into the multi-thousand range. It's certainly very well-detailed, to say the least.

The market for a costume like this (as in not just one made by me but any reputable builder) is easily in the $3000+ range
