How I painted Badger by melesmeles-faber How I painted Badger by melesmeles-faber

Ah, thank you! Damit, that's always my problem with latex-masks - the mouth movement. Halfway easy to make, because there are so few techniques combined, it would be wonderful for beginners - but most masks don't even have Moith movement and thr rest of them wobbles around. Your movement is one of the better ones I've seen. But if you want to use fur, as most of us want to do afterward, there's just no way the material would support the weight of even fur :P That's why I always came back to techniques using harder material, where you can use rubber bands for the movement.

Nevertheless a very good worl and I think I'll tell some friends playing hairless creatures about this tutorial (although they don't have your perfect haircut ;) ). And also my compliments on painting your back while using a mirror - I always mess up sides when using two mirrors x_x

For the minute I'm not interested in using fur....If I am after a more 'fur effect' I'll be trying further effects with the latex first of all....

LOL my haircut comes through neccesity, there was little hair left, and it looked better to shave it all off!! :)

The mirror painting is murder! I agree.

Thank you! He's not bad, just a little too 'floppy'.... I'll have to glue the jaw shut if I want to use him.....:)
