Now You See Them…

In-Fur-Nation - Sun 18 Feb 2024 - 02:39

Less serious stuff, for younger readers (mostly). It’s the Bigfoot and Nessie series of hardcover graphic novels, written by Chelsea M. Campbell and illustrated by Laura Knetzger. Volume one is The Art of Getting Noticed. “Meet Bigfoot and Nessie! Yes, that Bigfoot and Nessie. Only…Well, things are a little complicated right now. Bigfoot is having trouble fitting in with his family. He can never quite manage to get himself into the picture, much to the disappointment of his mom, dad, and sister, who always want to be in the spotlight. When he meets Nessie, who’s equally desperate to get away from the cameras, he begins to ask himself the ultimate question: What’s the price of fame after all?” Volume two, The Haunting of Loch Ness Castle, is also available now from Penguin.

LAST DAY to nominate for the Ursa Major Awards; Nominations open for the Good Furry Award.

Dogpatch Press - Sat 17 Feb 2024 - 05:16

Ursa art by Foxenawolf.

For over two decades, the Ursa Major Awards have recognized the furry fandom’s favorite creations every year. For the 2023 awards, anything with anthropomorphic animals is eligible to win by popular vote. Want your favorite works represented?

Go HERE to nominate, and don’t wait, the deadline is today (February 17)! 

There are fifteen categories (your input is only needed for ones you want to include): Best Motion Picture, Dramatic Short Work and Series, Novel, Short Fiction, Comic, Magazine, Illustration, Game, Website, Fursuit, Music, and more.

You can reference the Ursa website’s 2023 Recommended Anthropomorphics List, but that’s not all. The list only has what some fans submitted. There’s much more furry stuff in the world, and anything you can possibly think of inside or outside the fandom can be nominated if it was made in 2023. After nominations close, voting will be open from March 1 to March 31.

The awards are run by volunteers of the ALAA. Please consider donating to support their service via paypal@ursamajorawards.org.

__________________________________________

6th Annual Good Furry Awards open for nominations.

Starting in 2019, the Good Furry Award has been recognizing fan-nominated furries for outstanding community spirit. Nominations are now open for whoever you feel deserves recognition.

Nominate HERE via the updated page.

This year there’s a difference, and instead of just one award, there will now be 3:

  • The Image Award is for furries who give the fandom a positive image through videos, podcasts, vlogs, documentaries, websites, and other social media.
  • The Good Egg Award is for furries who do good deeds for individuals, animals, organizations, or the community.
  • The Furtastic Award is for furries who are excellent at other things not easily categorized as the above two and so is a catch-all for general pawsomeness.

Nominations will be open through September 1, 2024. (The timeframe is a little different this year, too.) There will be another Lifetime Achievement Award (3rd year running). Because there are now several awards, payment is phased out and winners will get a very handsome trophy and lots of furry love, as promised by founder Papabear Grubbs Grizzly of Uncle Bear Publishing.

Not Like Us… but Like Us

In-Fur-Nation - Thu 15 Feb 2024 - 02:51

Cartoonist and illustrator Jed McGowan has created their first graphic novel, My Life Among Humans. “A nameless alien data compiler comes to Earth to study humans, setting up shop on the outskirts of a small desert community in North America. Working under forced labor, it must watch humans in complete secrecy while sending regular reports to its manager back home. Using spore-like technology to read the minds of his hosts, the alien quickly takes a special interest in Will, one of his early subjects. That interest proves to be a problem when the alien is accidentally revealed to Will’s family and it takes desperate measures to save its own life.” Check it out now from Oni Press.

You’ve Got A Friend

In-Fur-Nation - Wed 14 Feb 2024 - 02:57

A deceptively simple concept lies behind this new black & white illustrated book. “Always there to comfort and listen, stuffed animals provide a reassuring presence in many a childhood. With Toys Talking, acclaimed illustrator and author Leanne Shapton explores their inner lives, to reveal that their thoughts and feelings are just as complicated as our own. The concerns of these bunnies, bears, and ducks range from the mundane to the existential, and with each new pairing of character and text, we see a deeper portrait of their pensive, quiet world. Shapton holds a mirror to our own lives, to our insecurities and concerns, by revealing that the objects who comfort us have worries of their own.” See what we mean over at Drawn & Quarterly.

Article Content Introduction

Fursuits are more than just costumes. They are a way to show creativity and personal identity. But what types are there? This article looks closely at the different kinds of fursuits. You’ll see everything from full suits that cover your whole body to simpler partial suits.

 

It doesn’t matter if you already wear or are interested in fursuits. We will explain the many kinds of fursuits because each is a unique art piece.

Mini Partial Fursuits

Mini partial fursuits are a simpler type of fursuit. They usually include three parts: the head, hand paws, and tail. Each part is essential in creating the character’s look and feel.

 

The head is the main feature of these suits. It’s made with great care to show the character’s personality. The design focuses on things like the eyes, fur patterns, and the shape of the mouth. This makes sure the head shows the right emotions and traits.

 

Hand paws are another part of these suits. They cover just the hands, not the whole arm. It makes it easier to use your hands. The paws match the theme of the suit. The tail is the last part of a mini partial fursuit. It helps show the character’s mood and style. Tails can be of different shapes and sizes. Some are long; others are short. The tail is made to look good and work well.

 

Mini partial fursuits are a good choice for those new to fursuiting. They’re easier to wear, carry around, and look after. Many people like them because they’re a simple way to join in the fun of fursuiting. They’re as expressive as bigger suits but more practical.

    Regular Partial Fursuits

    Regular partial fursuits are a mix of full character look and easy handling. These suits consist of four parts: the head, the hand paws, the feet paws, and the tail. You can portray a character well with this mix, but it is still easy to handle compared to a full suit.

     

    As with most fursuits, the head is the central point of a regular partial suit. It is intricately designed to represent the character’s facial features and expressions. The design is meticulous and detailed, so the head reflects the character’s unique personality.

     

    Hand paws add to the character’s look. They can be simple for basic cover. Or they can have more detail like fingers, claws, and pads. These paws usually match the head’s style and colours. This creates a uniform look.

     

    Feet Paws cover the wearer’s feet. They transform them into the character’s feet. Depending on which animal is depicted, they can be claws, hooves or padded toes. The paws are designed to be both aesthetic and functional. This allows the wearer to walk comfortably while maintaining the illusion of the character’s feet.

     

    The tail is the final component that completes the regular partial fursuits. It varies greatly in size, shape, and length, depending on the species and style of the character. Tails add a dynamic element to the suit that enhances the overall portrayal of the character.

     

    Regular partial fursuits are a common choice. They are practical for those who want to show their character without wearing a full suit. These suits are easy to wear and take off. They are comfortable for a long time. They are also easy to carry and look after. Still, they give a good level of character look and feel.

    From fursuit commissions to art commissions, Fursonafy has your back "They where extremely understanding and patient. They provided fast response times and amazing communication" Edward

    Three-quarter fursuits offer something between a full suit and a partial suit. These suits include the head, the upper body (like arms and torso), part of the legs (usually up to the knees), hand paws, and a tail. They cover more than partial suits but less than full suits.

     

    The head is the most crucial part of a three-quarter suit. It is made with great care to show the character’s personality. The creator’s skill and the wearer’s ideas come together in the head.

    Example Of Three-Quarter Fursuit

    Image via Facebook

    This suit covers the torso and arms and features detailed fur matching the head. Sometimes, it has special things like wings or special marks. These are part of the character. The suit is made to look good and be easy to move in.

     

    The legs are partly covered in these suits. This goes down to the knees. It gives a more complete look of an animal. At the same time, it is practical. It is suitable for warm places or when you need to move a lot. Like the rest of the suit, the leg part has detailed fur work.

     

    Hand paws and a tail are also part of the suit. The paws are made for both looks and use. They often have detailed claws or pads. The tail can be of different sizes and shapes. It depends on what the character is like. 

     

    Three-quarter fursuits are liked by many. They provide a middle ground between a partial and full suit, allowing the wearer to embody the character entirely. But they are also comfortable. This makes them great for wearing for a long time, like at events or shows.

      Full Fursuits

      Full fursuits are the heart of the fursuit world. They cover the entire body, from head to toe. This creates a full character look. They are about becoming the character in every detail.

       

      Making a full suit is an art. Each one is unique, often made to order. Makers use various materials, like fake fur and special fabrics. These are chosen for looks and comfort. The process is detailed. It involves designing, sewing, and crafting by hand. It can take hundreds of hours to make a full fursuit. 

       

      Full suits are loved for how they bring characters to life. You often see them at conventions. They are always a big attraction. Full fursuits come in different styles. Two main types are digitigrade and plantigrade leg styles.

       

      Example Of A Full Plantigrade Fursuit

      Image via Lemonbrat

      Full Plantigrade Fursuits

      Full plantigrade fursuits have legs like humans. This makes them look natural and relaxed. These suits are different from digitigrade suits. In plantigrade suits, the legs are straight. They are like how people stand and walk. 

       

      Plantigrade fursuits are easy to move around in. Because the legs are human-like, it’s easier to walk and sit. This is why they are a popular choice for extended periods of use. People like to wear them at events and meet-ups.

       

      These suits are also great for different designs. They can be used for many characters, from real animals to fantasy creatures. The human-like legs give more space for creative designs.

       

      Full Digitigrade Fursuits

      Full digitigrade fursuits have a unique design for the legs. These suits make it look like the wearer is walking on their toes, as many animals do. This gives the suits an animal-like shape, especially in the legs. It creates a realistic look for creatures like dogs, cats, and other mammals.

       

      The materials used in these suits are essential. They often use fake fur that looks real and lasts long. The materials need to be light and flexible. This is so the person wearing the suit can move easily. Despite the extra padding, the suit needs to allow movement. 

       

      Wearing a full digitigrade fursuit is a unique experience. It makes them look more like the animal they are portraying. These suits might limit movement a bit more than other types. Full digitigrade fursuits are popular because they bring imaginary characters to life. They are often chosen by people who want to show certain animal characters accurately.

      Example Of A Full Digitigrade Fursuit

      Quad Fursuits

      Quad fursuits are a very special kind of fursuit. They are made to look like four-legged animals. This type of suit is distinctive because it makes the wearer look and move like an animal on all fours. This design is a mix of costume-making and acting.

      The construction of a quad suit is both intricate and ingenious. Generally, it comprises a framework that alters the wearer’s arms and legs, giving them a more feral appearance. The framework is then covered with padding and fur, blending seamlessly with the suit. The designer has to think about how the wearer can stay comfortable and move around.

      The head of a quad suit is placed at shoulder level. This helps make the animal look real. The head is made with a lot of care. It looks at things like where the eyes are, how the mouth moves, and the fur patterns. The head needs to look good but also be practical. It should let the wearer see and breathe while staying in character.

      The suit also has a body part and a tail. This covers the wearer from head to toe. The body part is made to fit the structure and let the wearer move.

      Quad suits show the creativity and skill in the fursuit community. They are often used in shows or parades. This is where their amazing design and the skill to move in them can be fully seen. Wearing a quad suit takes a lot of effort. But it makes an impressive four-legged animal.

      Common Fursuit Styles

      Fursuiting is full of different styles that spark the imagination. Some styles look very real, and others are more like cartoons. In this part, we’ll look at these popular styles. Each one shows creativity and skill in fursuit making.

       

      Toony Style Fursuit Head

      Image via X

      Toony Fursuit Style

      The Toony Fursuit Style is all about fun and cartoon-like features. It’s inspired by animated characters. These fursuits have big eyes, oversized heads, and bright colours. It makes them look like they’ve stepped out of a comic.

       

      A key feature of Toony fursuits is their facial expressions. The heads usually have large, expressive eyes and wide smiles. This makes them stand out and look joyful. They often have exaggerated features like big paws or ears, adding to their playful cartoon style.

       

      When making Toony fursuits, the focus is on creating a fun look. The materials are bright and soft. Padding is used to make some parts of the suit look bigger. It adds to the cartoon feel. Even with these big features, the suits are made to be comfortable. They allow the wearer to move and express easily.

       

      Toony fursuits are popular with those who want to show a playful character. They are often seen at events and conventions. Their bright colours and friendly look make them loved, especially by kids. They show the fun side of fursuits. They are great for playful acting and meeting people.

       

      Kemono Fursuit Style

      The Kemono Fursuit Style comes from Japan. It’s special because it looks like anime and manga. These fursuits have a mix of real and anime styles. They’re known for their soft lines and simple yet expressive faces. This is like the style in Japanese animations.

       

      A big part of the Kemono style is the eyes. The eyes are large and look more human. They have detailed irises and a shiny look. This makes the fursuits seem enchanting. The heads are smaller than in other fursuit styles. They are more in proportion with the human body. This makes the suits look more like anime characters, friendly and relatable.

       

      Making a Kemono fursuit is all about sleekness. The fur used is short and fine. This gives the suit a smooth feel. The colours used can be both natural and bright. It allows for many different character designs. These can be realistic animals or fantasy creatures. The suits fit closely to the body. This highlights a more human shape while still showing the character’s features.

       

      Kemono fursuits are popular with anime and manga fans. They’re also loved by people who enjoy Japanese culture. These suits have become known worldwide. They mix traditional fursuit-making with Japanese animation styles. People wearing Kemono suits often show characters that are youthful and full of energy.

      Kigurumi Fursuit Style

      The Kigurumi Fursuit Style also comes from Japan. It mixes costumes and comfy loungewear. These are different from other fursuits. It’s more about looking cute and simple rather than realistic or cartoon-like.

       

      Kigurumi suits are known for being loose and comfy, like pyjamas. They are big and baggy. This is different from other fursuit styles that are tight-fitting. The heads on Kigurumi suits are simpler. They focus on the main features of the character without too much detail.

       

      The fabric used in Kigurumi is essential. These suits are often made from soft materials like fleece. This makes them comfortable and cuddly. The colours can be natural or very bright. This lets people create all kinds of characters.

       

      Many people like Kigurumi suits. It includes those new to fursuits and those who have worn them for a long time. They are great for indoor events where you want to be comfortable.

        Realistic Fursuit Style

        The Realistic Fursuit Style is all about looking like real animals. It tries to copy the look and body of animals accurately. This style is perfect for those who want to look exactly like a real animal. It could be any animal, like a pet or a wild one.

         

        Making these suits focuses on lifelike details. The heads are made very carefully. They have realistic noses, eyes, and ears. The eyes are usually made from glass or resin. This makes them look like real animal eyes. The fur is chosen and used to match real animal fur. This includes the right length, colours, and patterns.

         

        The body of the suit is made to match the animal’s shape and movement. This might need special padding or joints. It makes the suit move like a real animal. The suit also needs to be comfortable to wear. It should allow the person inside to move easily.

         

        Realistic fursuits need more care than other types. They have a lot of detail and are made from unique materials. These suits are often used in professional settings. It includes teaching about wildlife in plays or movies. The real look is critical in these situations.

        Choosing the Right Type of Fursuit for You

        Picking the right fursuit is about what you like, need, and want to do in the suit. There are a few things to consider to ensure you get a suit that’s right for you.

        Understanding Your Character

        First, think about your character. What’s its personality? What kind of animal is it? Does it look real or more like a cartoon? Your answers will help you decide the suit that fits your character best. Realistic characters might need full suits, while cartoon-like ones could work well with partial suits.

         

        Consider Your Activities

        Consider what you’ll do in your suit. If you’re going to events and moving a lot, you need a suit that’s comfortable and easy to move in. Partial or three-quarter suits are good for this. A full or quad suit might be better if you want to perform or stand out.

         

        Budget and Maintenance

        Think about how much you can spend. Full suits, especially custom ones, can cost more. They need more materials and work to make. Partial suits are usually cheaper. Also, think about taking care of your suit. Full suits need more cleaning and storage space. Partial suits are easier to look after.

         

        Personal Comfort and Practicality

        Your comfort is essential. If you’re new to fursuits, maybe start with a smaller suit. This can help you get used to wearing one. Also, think about storing and moving your suit. Bigger suits need more space and effort to transport.

         

        Customization Options

        Lastly, think about how unique your suit needs to be. If your character is very special, you might need a suit made just for you. This can take more time and money. Ready-made suits are quicker to get and can cost less, but they won’t be as unique.

        A Couple of Random Fursuit Tips for a Newbie

        Ask Papabear - Sat 10 Feb 2024 - 14:44
        Dear Papabear:

        I'm in school as of typing this so BEAR WITH ME if I don't make any sense, but if I were to make a fursuit head, would I have to wait to be older? I'm currently 15, and I'm not sure if my head would get bigger in size or not. 

        I'm concerned about color schemes as well! I don't know much about color theory, so most of my fursonas stay uncolored in my notebook pages :,)

        Also, are there any furmeets that you know of near me? Sorry if this is asking a bit too much, but I don't know of many furries near me, especially ones that are trans :(

        Dove the Kittydog (age 15, Buffalo area, NY)

        * * *

        Dear Dove,

        I ask people who write to me to limit each letter to one question, so keep that in mind if you write again. But here we go with some answers:

        People's heads continue to grow through puberty and beyond a bit, usually being pretty well formed by the age of 18 to 20. However, bones keep shifting and fusing etc. even up to age 40 or so (also, cartilage such as in the nose and ears will grow pretty much until our deaths). However, these changes are pretty minor when it comes to fitting hats or fursuit heads, and by your age you should be fine. One thing you can do to make sure is to get the head made slightly larger than your head is now, and then you can add a bit of foam or other padding as needed. Here is a quick tutorial on that: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zSoah9h59Mo.

        As for colors, go for whatever you like. This isn't art class where you get criticized for not knowing about color theory. What are your favorite colors? Hey, maybe add some metallic color or pastels or neon. Have fun with it! Nobody is going to get on your case if you think neon orange and gold foil look cool together. The fursuit is for you, not other people. Please yourself. Be true to yourself.

        As for furry groups, I would suggest you join the Buffalo & WNY Furs. They have a Facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/BuffaloFurs/

        I hope that helps!

        Happy Fursuiting!

        Netflix Heard The Call

        In-Fur-Nation - Sat 10 Feb 2024 - 02:58

        More from that article at Cartoon Brew. This time it’s a new “hybrid” (live action / CGI) feature called Woody Woodpecker Goes To Camp. “Netflix hasn’t released many details about the film yet, but the streamer did say that accomplished kids and family TV director Johnathan Rosenbaum (Fraggle Rock: Back to the Rock, R.L. Stine’s The Haunting Hour) is helming from a screenplay by Cory Edwards, Jim Martin, and Stephen Mazu… A brief logline reads: ‘After getting kicked out of the forest, Woody thinks he’s found a forever home at Camp Woo Hoo — until an inspector threatens to shut down the camp’. The only casting details shared so far indicate that Eric Bauza is involved, presumably as Woody’s voice.” We can all find out more when the film arrives on April 12th.

        You’re A Star!

        In-Fur-Nation - Fri 9 Feb 2024 - 02:59

        Thanks to Cartoon Brew, we found out about several interesting new animated films coming soon to Netflix. Among them is Thelma the Unicorn. “Thelma is a small-time pony who dreams of becoming a glamorous music star. In a pink and glitter-filled moment of fate, Thelma is transformed into a unicorn and instantly rises to global stardom. But this new life of fame comes at a cost.” Don’t know much about this one otherwise, but it’s directed by Jared Hess (Napoleon Dynamite, Nacho Libre) and Lynn Wang (Unikitty!), and it’s due on May 17th.

        We stumbled across this announcement in Variety recently: “Germany’s Studio 100 Media and Spain’s 3Doubles Producciones have teamed to develop animated adventure comedy Flamingo Flamenco. The script has been written by Rob Sprackling, whose credits include Shaun the Sheep Movie, Gnomeo & Juliet, and The Queen’s Corgi. Flamingo Flamenco follows the journey of Rosie, a young and exuberant flamingo, as she navigates personal loss and seeks to rediscover the joy of dance. The action is set against the backdrop of the beautiful Fuente de Piedra lagoon in Andalucía, Spain… The family-friendly entertainment feature ‘promises an enchanting and passionate blend of adventure, comedy and heartwarming moments’, according to a statement from Studio 100 Film, adding that the film ‘…emphasizes the importance of perseverance, self-discovery and the power of determination’. ” No word yet about any possible distribution in North America, but the film’s not scheduled to be completed until the fall of 2026. In the meantime, check out that poster! (Girl!)

        Try. Try to Make the World a Better Place

        In-Fur-Nation - Tue 6 Feb 2024 - 03:22

        Once again it’s time to nominate someone special for the Good Furry Awards. What’s that you ask? Started in 2019 by Grubbs Grizzly (host of the Ask Papabear web site), the Good Furry Awards are presented annually to recognize folks all over who represent the spirit of the furry fandom. People like Dogbomb, Ash Coyote, Cassidey Civet, and more — all nominated and voted on by furry fans like you. So now it’s your turn! Nominations are open all the way ’till September of 2024, then voting starts shortly after — and the winner is announced in mid-October. This year, for the first time the awards are diversifying, the better to celebrate furries who aren’t necessarily media celebrities (yet!). Now there’s a Good Egg Award (for furries helping others), an Image Award (for folks promoting and educating about the Furry Fandom) and the Furtastic Award (for just plain helpful folks!). Find out about all this and more at the official Good Furry Awards page — and check out the WikiFur article to see the furs who’ve been nominated and honored before!

        Make Him Huff and Puff

        In-Fur-Nation - Mon 5 Feb 2024 - 02:58

        More interesting manga from Seven Seas, this one with a notable yaoi bent: Why Don’t You Eat Me, My Dear Wolf? by Ao Koishikawa. [What a title!] “Taro is sent to the forest alone. He’s a sacrifice for the monstrous wolf, Uru. Upon seeing him, Uru declares Taro too small and too thin. The wolf feeds him, clothes him, and cares for him. Time passes and Taro finds himself wanting to be devoured by this giant wolf who gives him nothing but affection.” Poor thing.
