I'm totally setting that as my signature lol
Sounds like something straight outta Overwatch...
It kinda does.
So, it's like this.
I used a particular username on a forum with some friends, a literary reference, and my future boyfriend and some other people got it and started joking that I was actually a polecat-ferret. This stuck. Eventually, though, when I became more involved in this sort of thing, I came to the conclusion that a pine marten was more appropriate.
My second choice, insofar as those are a thing, is the flying fox, because the comparisons are almost too on the nose, but it's a second choice because people don't understand how to draw wings on an anthropomorph.
I still haven't picked one. So many species are good. ;^;
A wise person once told me "pick 3 personality traits and see what anime is stereotypically that"
I'm really new to it all, so for the past few weeks my persona feels like it is just starting to take shape in my head. It is really interesting and for me it feels like the start of a great adventure hopefully. Sadly I don't know anyone yet but I hope to so that I can go to conventions etc. I'm in talks with someone who may be making a costume for me. Anyway - yes I'm heading in the direction of a husky. I think they are fantastic. Tough choice though but yeah... that's where I'm at! I've started drawing in Adobe Illustrator/PhotoShop. Am fussy and want to get 'me' right!
Combine them and make your own fascinating abomination!
Personally, I followed the fandom for years as a lurker before becoming an active participant. When i did, I took a bit to sit down and think hard about species what I'd most closely identify with. When I was a kid I was REALLY into dinosaurs, to the point where I was reading paleontology books that I didn't even comprehend half the words of at the time. That in mind, I took my favorite dino from childhood, the allosaurus, and rolled with that as my fursona.
I went with a husky instead of a wolf so i could correct people
Hello. I choose a red panda because I take on some of the same traits as one. It was that or an owl but... I might make a red panda owl??? Owl because in a lot of my dreams I have brown owl wings...
Simple for me, I am literally obsessed with cats irl so I had to be a cat.
inb4 "I didn't choose my species, my species chose me"
I'm a dog.
Why? You are what you eat.
i chose a kitty cat because they are very submissive to people they like (most of 'em anyways), but when they get pissed off....
I went to a convention (not a furry one btw) and i got these red fox ears and I was really into the red color and that's how velvet was born.
I found myself rummaging through trash one day.
Alternatively, I made a list of animals I liked/thought were cute (it was... a very long list) and then poked through the behavior that has been observed by said animal, and varied lores around them.
(Raccoons lore considers them tricksters, they have been known to be able to fiddle and open locks, they are semi-solitary and they eat everything. It me. :v )
I really wanted one that I thought fit who I am.
If I had gone solely by my personality, I probably would have gone with a bear (plus bears are my favorite animal), but I wanted one that matched my body type, as well as my personality and behavior, and let's just say I don't exactly look like a bear. I decided to go with something canine, considering I have really sensitive ears and sense of smell, plus I consider myself very loyal to those I form some sort of relationship with. I also thought I'd go with some sort of hybrid animal, since I'm biracial. I decided on a Coyolf (coyote/wolf), since I live in Texas and there's coyotes everywhere here, and I love werewolves. I looked up a picture of a coyolf, and they're pretty slim, like me. Badda-bop, my 'sona was born!
