I totally dig these paws. Gorgeous! I imagine it would be pretty difficult to create gloves that are easily recognizable as a lion's paws while still maintaining the functionality of a human hand... but you've done it. Marvelous work you've got, here! I hope that someday I'll be able to create costume pieces of this caliber.
Well no, its not that. I dont own ...gloves... who can own gloves? No, its being told my stuff is really nice, then in the same sentance being told they're going to show it to someone else makeing their suit... its rude to me as a maker just... because dude... think about it? and its rude to whoever his maker is, because its basically telling them whatever they have already done isnt good or is assumeing they arent capable of figureing out something good on their own OR that their style isnt appreciated.
... I cant stop people from doing this, but um... its pretty impolite.
I would take it as a compliment. The fact that you moved the claws to have better articulation. I am not asking her to recreate this piece what so ever, but ideas that improve articulation and grip while in fursuit gloves is something I appreciate and want.
These ideas you are putting out there are being shared with the community whether that was their original intent or not...
I think it's kinda still to ask someone if you can take an idea of something that has already existed and no one has a patient or distinct claim to and share that idea with someone who may not have seen it themselves.
Didn't you start by taking things you saw by other artists and trying to recreate them? Involving your own style and knowledge? That's what I was trying to aim for, I wasn't trying to be rude.
