Maned Wolf WIP by Sharpe19 Maned Wolf WIP by Sharpe19
After cleaning the workroom once more yesterday I came across a very large fox fursuit tail I had purchased at IFC earlier this year. I know I won't ever get a chance to wear it (not much of just a tail wearer) I got the sudden urge to make a cartoon fox.

Through the cleaning I had also came across an older balaclava, a discarded muzzle, and a nose that I wasn't using so I finished cleaning and dug through my fur scraps, pulling out the last bit of my MM red fox supply from 2010 and some toon teeth and set to work.

I streamed the random bout of making but rapidly discovered the 'fox' part was just not wanting to come, settling happily upon a maned wolf. The design I've had for a couple months so I'm happy to see it will get some use. Got some things I'm waiting on so after I finish the alterations on Jake's bodysuit I'm going to quickly fur this fella. No moving jaw but does have following eyes. Will soon fit a 23-24 head and will be for sale, both head and tail. If I'm feeling adventurous and have some spare time I will make some paws to go with it.

The red markings are to be airbrushed black, the black lines to be seams.

Wow, this is amazing. I remember seeing this before and thinking holy crap that sketch looks like mine! But upon further inspection I see the differences, the ears and undereye markings are scary similair though. xD

And I just did this same thing seeing it a second time. XD

Went off of this a bit: [link]

As the ref ;) I presume the one you're referring to is the Phoenix one? I had a look through you gallery as I was curious. Common pose, but I do see the similarities you are talking about!

Oh no, sorry I didn't elaborate. It was a sketch that I had in my sketchbook. I didn't post it here ^^ That's why I was so surprised at the resemblance. Mine had a little thinner muzzle, different neck shape, and had a feather mane, xD. But the face is very similar. :)

I've never actually been able to find buckram at fabric stores .-.
Could you point me in the right direction for next time I take a trip up to the Fabric Store when I want to go check for a sale of fur or such ~

I'll take a gander!

Thank you c:
I've been using a plastic mesh that's easy to see through, but not the most beautiful thing ever. (I bit holey from the front, not too bad though)
