keerohblog asked: For the record, ear vents are EXCEPTIONALLY helpful in venting out heat. Heat rises, and all that. I've suited in a head with ear vents, and one without. The ones with are much better at remaining cool and keep the air flowing. Less muggy and stuffy inside. If it's detrimental to the overall look (IE: your character has ears that don't work for ear vents) I think you should put a lot of effort into clearing out the muzzle and eye sockets for circulation to compensate.
Thanks, I think this will help a lot of people when they think of making vents :)
im-goin-ghoste asked: I hear a lot about hidden ear vents but I haven't got a clue what that even means or how to make them, but it sounds useful for my upcoming dance suits. Do you have any tutorials on ear vents?
Nope because it sounds more complicated than it actually is :)
Ear vents are Just “holes” in the foam or a resin base between theears and the head.
You can see it in this picture very well
I have no experience if this really helps to cool down the head. Maybe some of my followers know this
The whole tutorial from Matrice can be found here
a tutorial i made for painting plastic mesh eyes without clogging the holes with paint.
Thanks for this submission, I always wonder how you paint eyes like this the best.
Anonymous asked: I'm really at a loss here about how to install clay claws onto hand paws. All the tutorials I watch seem to show how to mold and shape them but not how to actually put them onto the paws.
That’s because there isn’t really a secret for this. You can simply glew them on or kind of sew them in.
Some time ago I post how I attach claws on handpaws. You can read this here
I hope this helps, if not just ask me again^^
lirpanator asked: hi! i love your blog. do you have any good links for mouse fursuits?
There isn’t a tutorial for every species unfortunately. I suggest to look tutorials up for the method you want (head building, digitrade or not, padding in generall) and just adjust everything to your species.
I know there are some really cool WIP Pictures of rodents out there that could help.
And I also know a fursuit maker that sells a rat blank. If you go for a realistic look, this could be made into a mouse^^
nikwolf1111 asked: I was wondering if you know any tutorials on the actual sculpting the base of a resin head. I've seen beetlecat's sped up video put that isn't much of a tutorial. Thank you~
Nope I only know this one. I find it really much a tutorial, because you can follow step by step how she sculpted her base andaim for thespecies you want.
I did this with my resin base too and I suck at sculpting^^
Anonymous asked: Do you have any guide for how long to make the snout of the fursuit (wolf fursuit)? I'm sort of lost and dont know how long or short to make it..
There is no general lenght for a muzzle. It depends on the size of your base and your own head.
If you are not sure, share some pictures here and ask for ciritics or on other communities like Facebook groups, Livejournal groups or friends in general.
