Riley the GSD- Toony Style Concept by CanineHybrid Riley the GSD- Toony Style Concept by CanineHybrid
So this is a first for me- static jaw, exaggerated proportions, extra cuteness... what is this madness!?

I have always been an advocate of more realism in costumes (not that I've gotten around to attempting one myself yet), but undoubtedly I need to expand my portfolio and give a little bit of everything a try. Toony suits are very popular, not to mention adorable, if done right. I find that the most well-known builder's work is instantly recognizable... so I hope I'll be able to develop a unique style too and this is my first step towards that. What do you think?

If you ever commission me for toony animals, as I have no current examples other than Pokémon, this is what you can expect to receive since I tend to stay extremely close to my concept art.

-------------

I've designed this primarily because I wanted a costume that would be more versatile- I don't have to worry as much about vision or annoying moving jaws, there's even enough room for a fan. I can take it to almost any event and won't scare off little ones (as realistic suits tend to do). Plus I get to be my awesome German shepherd self! There's nothing I dream of more than owning a realistic Riley, but I don't feel I've got the experience or skills to do her justice quite yet and have been putting off the challenge of creating my fursona for years and years. This style costume, however, I can totally manage! And DO plan to do in the future. I'm inspired now after drawing this.



However, I do no currently know WHEN I'll get around to building her. I'll be sure to let you know once I know. Finally I have an answer to all the people who constantly ask "Are you ever going to make a Riley suit?"

YES I AM. TAKE THAT!

That looks like an amazing fursuit design. I even like the toony look on it. It looks like the perfect fursuit for your fursona. I'm looking forward to seeing it completed; whenever that time comes.

I think this will look really nice when it's finished. :) Are you going to work on making this fursuit after you're done with your Charizard one or didnt you have a different fursuit that you wanted to make next in mind? :)

When you said "I can take it to almost any event and won't scare off little ones" that reminded me of the time my sister went as a zombie for halloween and scared a little girl when she was trick or treating. That was really funny when that happened. XD

You did a very good job on this and I wish you best of luck when you start realism costumes. Hopefully it won't be as hard as you think, you have Photoshop at your side for getting the patterns.

Egad, Riley's gone toony! I never thought I'd see the day!

That face is so freakin' adorable, though! And the big paws! Plus, bonus points for trying something a little different from your previous style. I'll certainly be looking forward to seeing how this turns out!

Aww, the style vaguely reminds me of my umbreon, especially with the feet. It's very challenging to walk with huge fursuit feet! I can't wait to see it come to life finally. :)

Very cool! I was about to ask why you didn't want to stick with a realistic Riley GSD but your reasoning is sound.

I agree. You can't scare the little kids!
It always makes me feel a little bad that a small few of them get scared around me at Trick or Treat Street at the Denver Children's Museum.
I'm wondering how bad the scaring might be with the new mask I'll get from B., but we'll see sooner or later!

It is quite nice to have a pretty static mask sometimes, and the fan option is a very good idea especially with a full thick faux fur suit.

When you finally get around to the Realistic GSD, it will be awesome for sure!
