Anyways, I want a realistic looking Rillo and I know that if I paid somebody to make it for me, they'd most likely get the nose wrong. Rillo is a rat, see, and 98 % of the population believe that rats have dog-type noses. They don't. So I'm going to make it myself. I saw a lot of cool things at Mixed Candy -- like realistic heads with super-cool realistic fur. It's not the patchwork stuff that you usually see, but it looks like it's been "painted" on. I'll probably send a note their way asking how they do the color fade like that...
I don't want a baggy suit, either. Something with a slight bulk, more on the hind legs than the rest, and no lumpy/cartoony paws. I don't know how that is going to work, but I don't like the cartoony paws. Nor cartoony eyes. I would do the realistic eyes where your eye actually shows, but Rillo has red eyes and I don't. So I'll have to have some sort of see-through type of stuff.
It's gonna take a loooong time.
