Riley the GSD [WIP1] by CanineHybrid Riley the GSD [WIP1] by CanineHybrid
Update:


I'm working on building a half suit of my fursona, Riley the German Shepherd Dog, using my canine resin mask as a base to show an example of what a finished mask will look like with some foam customization. The goal is to finish this project before Further Confusion in January and so ~Monoyasha and I are in a "race" to both finish our personal suits and have been spending the past few weekends working together on them. ;p Place your bets now!

Here's a preview of the concept art I've been working on, as well as a guide to help you understand how some foam padding can really go a long way in changing the look of the character. I cut off the mask's nose and built up a lot of padding in the bridge and upper lips to really capture that GSD shape.

This mask currently features:
-Canine resin blank w/hinges from CanineHybrid Creations
-Canine silicone nose from CanineHybrid Creations
-Canine jawset from *DreamVisionCreations
-Canine tongue from *DreamVisionCreations
(so yes, for those wondering, Monoyasha's jawsets do fit in my blank!)

:bulletorange: It's looking great. Wish I could do that kind of stuff, aside from it just looking fun to do :) Is there a way to make see-through eyes so that you can make it look slight more realistic? Just curious. I'd want to place something in the mouth to black out as well, lol. Such great work though, don't get me wrong! Really love it. :bulletgreen:

Unfortunately, there is no way to see through resin eyes. Even if they were clear, the refraction from the curved surface would make it impossible. And you could totally cover your face more- just keep in mind it will be harder or less comfortable to breathe and will promote faster heat buildup. Thanks for the compliments ^^

I love all your costumes! This looks great! I have always wanted to try a resin mask. I would love to see how you make the Digigrade padding.

Nice, a costume of your awesome OC! This'll be the best costume/fursuit when you finish it, thats for sure. :)

Man, now I just thought of an idea for a partial costume of my own Werewolf/ Dragon OC, gotta write it down.

I'm honestly surprised that this hasn't been done before. Not to belittle the work and engineering that went into making it. Still, this is actually really cool.
Amazing work. :D

Sweet job Canine! The teeth and tongue look so... So... So... Real! Hey, you know what you should do, when you just about finish, you shoul totally make a little barking noise thingamabobber and glue it to the top or make it "invisible" and when you open your mouth a bark comes out! :3 just an idea! Keep up the wonderful work!
As always, scaley and green

Thanks a lot! The jawset definitely helps the look :3
I probably won't have time before this upcoming con, but it's definitely something I've considered doing in my costumes for awhile now. GSDs definitely have that distinctive bark!

Yea, it looks pretty real, almost scary real 0.o nah, it ain't scary, just realistic lookin'! Your sooooooo lucky to go to cons, never been to one before. Always wanted to go to comicon but it is never in Canada.... Oh well, better look forward to it in a few years right? Yea, your right. Might take too long to install... Hm, CURSE YOU IN-ADANCED TECH!!! (and I'm typing this on an iPad, pretty low tech right XP) I'm so excited to see when the Riley costume is done!
I'm still coverd in scales and glowing green!
