Hi everyone, I am making my first fursuit (a dragon). It's been pretty rough, and I haven't been using any references, like a dum-dum. Looking for some advice on what to do next - even if it's ripping this baby apart and starting over. Maybe you are recoiling in horror. ;_; Any feedback will help!!! Should I keep at it with the foam? Should I move on to fur? Any features in particular that you think need shaping?

Hey there, first off do you have a reference? Without one I an others wouldn't know what you were aiming to make in the first place since dragons vary in shape so much.

Okay, because it's a dragon there really isn't a right or wrong way for it to look (hence the need for a ref.). It would help you to sketch out an idea with where you're going. That way you'd at least have a feel if it's going in the right direction you want it to or not.

What are you going for, any specific kind of look? IS the head suppose to have a moving or static jaw? Any specific kind of expression?

I would like his eyebrows to slant downward but not look angry - just stern. Static jaw. Downward-facing ears at the top-back, spikes at the sides. Some things I'm especially worried about are a.) furring the mouth/nose - do they have kind of a funky shape? b.) the eye holes being so close together.

I'll do my best with a redline if you haven't done one for yourself yet.
Unless you're going for a snarl with teeth showing the mouth is too wide open. Also if you can you should set the head on a mannequin or your own for pictures if by chance it sits differently than when it's not.

I haven't heard back so I assumed you tried working on it further, how'd it progress?

I tried a redline from the side but I don't know what you mean by spikes if what I put there wasn't them.
