Thank you for taking an interest in my Fursuit Reference Sheets! I create artwork that can be used to show a fursuit maker what you want made. I do not make fursuits myself, but in order to get a fursuit made, you must have a visual representation of your character, and the artwork I make can help you to commission the maker of your choice. Please note that makers can only take a limited number of commissions at a time, and that concept art from me does not guarantee you a spot from any specific maker. This website has all the information you will need to know about commissioning a reference sheet from me. Please read and familiarize yourself with my Terms of Service and Prices so that you know what to expect when working with me. If you have any questions not answered by my Terms of Service or Frequently Asked Questions, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org ! TO PLACE AN ORDER... Please read my Examples & Prices and Terms of Service pages - further instructions can be found there!
Why do I need a Fursuit Reference? An excellent question! A fursuit reference is the "blueprints" that your suit maker will follow to bring your character to life accurately. Fursuit references are often different from other character references because they are drawn with the future fursuit in mind - not all colors are available in faux fur, and not all markings or ideas are possible to have on a fursuit. A proper fursuit reference should be very clean and clear with symmetrical front, side, and back views to show the character at every angle, without obscuring markings or important details. See the slideshow below for some more information! Slideshow was generously provided by CharmanderCharArt.

Why choose NeonSlushie Refs?
I have been working with and designing customer costumes for DHC, MFY, & many other fursuit makers since 2009! I have worked very closely alongside them to ensure your design will be able to translate into fursuit form. I often know exactly what kind of fur colors are available, as well as what kind of markings they will and will not be able to make.
My references are very clean and clear, which leaves no room for missing markings or messing something up. It is very important to have a good reference when commissioning a fursuit that will cost several thousand dollars. You don’t want something to be missed or overlooked!
When working with me, you get my design expertise and advice, as well as a clear, legible reference sheet that is easy for fursuit makers to work off of! I promise quick turnaround times and excellent customer service. I am happy to answer any questions you have about concept art or fursuits.
