Going to Megaplex for the first time next month. It'll be my first time at a con with more than a few hundred people, so kinda nervous lol.

I finally got around to sketching this mutt:



Sorta-kinda final-ish. I'm only attached to the face and large details. But I have until MFF to get this guy done. Even set up a spreadsheet to track my inventory, expenditures, labor, etc., because I want to get serious about making suits for sale. I'm tired as fuck of working in medical lol. Will try to foam the entire head Tuesday after work.

They look great! I feel like terriers are underrepresented among fursonas.
So do I

Also grabbed a copy of the first volume of Beastars earlier this week




Yus, I have an actual job now thanks to visiting my wolf
I picked it up, too, and I've fallen in love with the characters' small behaviors and expressions. I'm going crazy waiting for volume 2. D:

Just found out that SonicFox is a guest of honor at Megaplex next week, and I'm kind of fangirling a bit?? Gonna be really fucking cool to see him at opening ceremonies.

Really excited for the con. Only ones I've been to so far are Fangcon in Knoxville, TN and Anthro Southeast in Chattanooga. Never been to a big one like Megaplex before. Also been a long time since I was last in Florida.

Hi ERA spotlight. Some good adult anthro comics i recommend you to read:

*Blacksad
*Solo (i don't know if it's published in the USA)
*Grandville
*Omaha
*Beastars (Manga)

You're welcome.
I second Blacksad. Amazing artistry and surprisingly compelling in the way it treats sociopolitical topics.

I'll be honest the Beastars anime is cool but I'm more excited about the actual merch that will be made now.

Behold the horrors of unfinished suit heads:



Right now he's just blocked in- cut templates pinned to a shell. Made a special double liner to better protect my hair since I'm too lazy to buy a balaclava.

Next step is to glue, shave, and refine it to look more like the thing on the right. After that, handpaw patterns.

That is really cool. Do you make a video of the whole process? That would be fun to watch. Very talented

Thank you!

And unfortunately no video! I'm concerned with trying to price and time myself making him that I didn't think to film myself. But I'm not adversed to sharing exactly what I do on every part, because I crib various techniques from other makers. Anything specific you want to know?

I just thought a time stamp video would be cool because of how awesome it is already.

Head progress. Glued and carved out his dumb face. There's some slight twisting issues bugging me but I'll get to fixing those. Aside from the lack of ears he's pretty much done in that department. Once I get them on I'll line the inside:

Just boarded my flight back home from Megaplex. Had a blast at the con, and the hotel was easily the best I've ever stayed at for a convention so far. Gonna have to make sure to come down again next year.

Charr are the best. I was almost done with Tumblr until a charr artist ended up on my watch list. Then I found even more.

GW2 community as a whole seems pretty great too. I love seeing the screen captures of everyone getting together for events.
I took a couple screenshots after our Pride March concluded. Even GMs will march too.

Oooh fun! There's so many great looking characters.

I could never get my Guardian cat to look near as good, but that was all the way back at launch.

Is that Snargle Gutslurper standing right next to you?

That looks like Lydiarts! I have one of her shirts. Tight fit, but very nice. Her online shop isn't open atm I think, but she goes to a lot of conventions as a dealer.
