Step One: Fursuit Concept and Design

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Time to build a fursuit! But wait, don't grab the foam and glue just yet. This panel will discuss the real first steps in fursuit construction - references and concept art. Even for toony fursuits or made-up hybrids, anatomy references and accurate concept art are your roadmap to creating a memorable and effective critter. Let's talk about where to get them, how to create them, and how to use them along the way. I'll also go over techniques I use to design body padding, create good proportion, fix symmetry issues, and stay "on model" throughout the process. We'll also discuss a little fursuit design, and how what works for 2D art doesn't also translate to big furry costumes. Suitable for fursuit builders of all levels, but especially beginners!

8 Foot Rabbit
I sew stuff! I've been making fursuits under the name 8 Foot Rabbit since 2013, and before that I wrote a couple of sewing books. I love geeking out over fursuit technique and design. Questions? Come to my panels at 11 am on Friday, and 1 pm on Saturday and we'll chat!
