I decided to make a little journal here; as i'm interested in the fursuit community and what it has to offer. :)
I have another account here called kizamaji, but this will be my journal for fursuiting only.
I am Shikoku, I go by this name on FurAffinity. I go by Kizamaji on deviantART. Confused yet? Thought so.
I am 20 years old; a 3rd year college student majoring in Fine Arts. I'm planning on becoming a full-time illustrator once I graduate. I'd also like to learn how to make fursuits, attend conventions and get more involved in the Furry Community. Why? I personally find conventions to be really fun, its great to meet online friends in person and hang out. I feel right at home. I used to avoid calling myself a furry but, the fact is -- its been right in front of me the whole time. No point in avoiding it, I guess.
Anyways. I'm currently working on a Shiba Inu fursuit and also planning out a body suit for a head i'm receiving from DavenNashi ( seriously check her out, her work is awesome! :3 )
Here is where I am on my Shiba Inu head;
Yeah. I look creepy. I know.
Anyways. Here is the concept art I drew at 4am the other morning after playing WoW for 8+ hours. Not my best work. lol
I'm still working on this concept. I might incorporate some more blue into the bodysuit, to tie everything together more. I'm thinking along the lines of a very short hair ( seal ) for the whole body and adding longer fur on the elbows, knees, tail, butt, ect. That way the sheen of the fur matches the head but also has a variation in fur lengths. It adds a little volume and also helps keep it interesting.
