New Pallas' Cat Fursuit by Runoratsu New Pallas' Cat Fursuit by Runoratsu
My "Fursona", finally made into a fursuit (by myself again, it's my second fursuit).

Is and stays a half suit, because I think that fits more realistic/serious characters better. I'm still gonna make some adjustments and give it other outfits though.

Made its first appearance at EF15.

The species is a Pallas' Cat (Felis Manul).

PS: Concept art was [link]

PS2: The cane's handle is a dog's head ;)

PS3: Photo is © Schorse, btw. and you get it full size via the download button.

Thank you! It's not so hard... If you are determined, use LOOOTS of reference pics and read through a lot of tutorials/talk to people... you might get a feeling for it quickly as well!

Make concepts! Look for reference pics (photos!) from the side, front and top, and overlay them with a photo of your head from these angles, so you can look how you have to align and tilt the animal head so that it fits you. Take a good look at skulls as well.
Try to make the head as small as possible, and the underside of the head should be where your jaw bone ends - not lower! So you can still move decently and your suit has a neck.
Overpronounce features like the cheekbones and the brows, set the eyes a little deeper and not just onto the front of the face if you don't want a totally toony look.
MAKE THE HEAD SMALL and skinny looking, fur adds MUCH, more than you could ever imagine ;), to the form and hides all the features.
Trim the fur after furring!
Oh, and try to think of a good ventilation concept if you're not totally heat-resistant ;) - I really *die* without the fans in my muzzle (2x 1" square 5V ones running on 4 eneloop batteries [-> 4.8V]) even though I already use filter foam, mesh and in many parts just the fur over that. YMMV though.
That's at least the biggest mistakes I had to learn about from the two suits I made.

by the way,in proportion to clothing size,what should the fursuit be? 1 or 2 sizes more?or how do you measure it?

Runoratsu Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2010  Hobbyist
You mean a fullsuit? ddeepends on what you wanna do. If you're very active, always jumping, rolling around, doing stunts, it'd best not be too tight or it's gonna rip. On the other paw, the more formfittig you make it, the better it looks (not like some furred pyjamas :P).
As this is a half suit, I just bought clothing that fit ME. "Fit" in past tense because I lost about 40-50 pounds since then, but this is another story ;)

I'm making a Fennec partial atm. Project's on ice right now, though. But I don't think I'll ever stop building suits entirely!
It's hard to give tips without knowing your problems. One could fill whole books with these. Best just visit fursuit.livejournal.com, read through the memories there and ask questions if you need to know something specific. =)
You can always ask me, too, if you have questions, though.

Wie sie alle auf Findus abfahren ^^. Eigentlich würd ich ja lieber nen Avatar aus meinen eigenen Bildern ziehen, aber bisher gefiel mit nix, ich werd bei Zeiten mal was zeichnen, was in der Größe auch wirkt und mich auszeichnet. Aber bis dahin ist Findus ein guter Vertreter :) Schau dir die Filme an, die sind soooo süß!

He's so suave! I love it! do the feet have digi padding to give them a hock too? I just can't tell from this angle, but his feet are soo cute. And the feathering of the fur makes it so realistic, that and he is such a charming chap! I love teh outfit he's wearing too. Exteremely origianal.

No, I didn't give the feet a foam heel, because that would have been just where my calves are, and would've rather disturbed the form of the smaller paws. It would only have worked with bigger paws - which I didn't want.

Well, I think most artists are good fursuit builders, because they have a 3D model of the characters in their minds already... then you only need a little manual skill, and carve the form out of the foam/mesh/hotglue ;)/whatever :D
