need suggestions

Posted in Custom Workstation

okay here's a figure I'm working on. Sadly I didn't plan it out right and have this massive opening on the head. The head is a bit big but I just write it off as him having a mane. Any suggestions for closing the game and making it look pretty good? I thought about a mane or fur but not sure how to do it.

That's what I was thinking. Wish I'd put more thought into this lol. The other two with cat heads look a lot better. The third is the best I've done, the second needs a lot of work even compared to this guy. Anyhow I'll give him a work over tonight or tomorrow and see what I can come up wiht. I think if I can bring the head closer the fur would cover the chest like it would in real life and help and then I can figure something out on the back. Fur does kinda look bad on customs, its worse to try and sculpt than hair. I was trying to find a way to make a hair style for him lol.

if you mean the size difference in the neck of the head and the neck of the body...I don't know if there is much you can do. I think fur looks cheap on customs. I don't think adding a mane would look good becasue the bottom of the head will still be sticking out too much.

My first suggestion would be to dremel off the parts of the bottom/neck of the tiger head so that it is more flush with the beast body.
Then, maybe you could sculpt a bit on the upper torso to bulk it up a bit and bkend better with the head.
