wren!! he is the first head with 3d resin eyes i have made in a loooong time, and the first LED eyes i have made in even longer! needless to say, i did a lot of new stuff for this guy, as most of my methods for doing those things were way out of date. i had a lot of freedom with this one and really enjoyed making it, so i hope it shows.
so while i post my finished work here on tumblr, if you really like to see pictures of disembodied cartoon cat heads, pattern drafting work, foam building, and other various fleecy guttings, you should follow me on instagram!
my instagram is where i post WIP feeds of each suit i make and do my best to answer people’s construction questions along the way. i’ve been making suits for almost ten years now, so while i can’t do everything, i like to think i’ve got a couple tricks up my sleeve that might could help some people out. :j
and dire for… dire! this one has been a looong time in coming, so we spent a little bit of extra time on it and just finished up the head the other day. as usual, the model in the photos is significantly shorter than the person it is for. X)
colours are a little off in the photos since i had to resort to a back-up camera.
