If you would like to commission a fursuit from Hybrid Studios we first need some concept artwork of what your character looks like! The best way to provide this is with a reference sheet of your character - the more accurate the better!
Where can I get a reference sheet from?
A lot of artists will do commissions for reference sheets, a good place to look is on Furbuy or
Recently some artists have been kind enough to draw freebie reference templates - these are ideal for characters who do not require a lot of custom details and are very basic, usually consisting of just one pose but these can be a good building block for those wishing to commission custom artwork and are having difficulty explaining some details of their characters. These are constantly being added and updated and feature many types of species such as felines, canines and foxes. There is a very good list of blank free templates on the FurNation forums.
Custom artwork is ideal for showing the personal details of your character and is usually the best choice whehn it comes to commissioning a fursuit- some sheets can be very simple while others can be very complex. We recommend a simple 3 pose sheet (front, side and back) for most characters, more complex characters may require a more in depth sheet in order to show all the details needed.
