Reference sheet for my black jaguar fursuit: He has black fur with charcoal on the chest and inside of the paws. Rainbow stripes go down to the left and right of his chest, and from the head down the back to the tip of his tail. The individual paw pads each have a different color: red, yellow, green, and blue. He has a piercing in his right ear and nose, and wears a spiked collar.

Description

These are the first two parts of my personal fursuit project: a collaboration with my partner Kiza that should eventually become a full digitigrade fursuit. The theme is “RGB panther”, inspired by my profile icon, with some punk design elements.

Tail

A “super-motion tail” based on tutorials by Neffertity and Adamoshi, with a few modifications: The hole for the belt has been reinforced with a leather tube to prevent tearing of the foam, and it has an RGB LED strip running under the fur along its back for a little extra rainbow effect in the dark.

Hand paws

The hand paws are based on a slim-style puffy 5 finger pattern from Skunky Designs.

We used a slightly different option for the lining, with one half-lining sewed to the top half of the paws, then another half-lining put on the bottom half of the paws, and then everything sewed together.
