How did you go about making your fursona?

Hey, so I guess since I'm the new kid on the block I don't have a fursona yet. I don't really know where to start other than that it's gonna be a light brown fennec fox. What did you all do to make yours? Also should I use my name for my fursona or make one up?

I wouldn't say there is any right or wrong way of making a fursona, it's all supposed to be a reflection of yourself, your ideals, experiences, whatever you want.

I started out with the simple fact that I am obsessed with owls and settled on a Great Horned Owl as two of my other favorites owls, Snowy and Barn, were not that rare when it came of owl fursonas, as few of them there are. I like to stick to realism so Reno doesn't have any strange colors or markings on him. His first name originated from my FA account name, Inzoreno, and I chose a last name that sounded like it would come from the same linguistic background: Sabatori. A little bit later I chose to place him living during the late Victorian and early Edwardian era due to the appealing fashion and ever since I have slowly been working on a backstory that I now have posted on my FA account.

The detail you put was remarkable, friend, very well thought-out.

Look take what you think is cool or an create an extension of yourself. You already got the animal the rest is simple also use the name you got for now again for simplicity. Have fun with it

Dack Remus Applewold
Long story short: I kept drawing and drawing until I was satisfied.
Thus Dack the fox was born.
As for his personality, interests, age, employment, and height/weight, Part of it is actually me, some of it is me, idealized, some of it is fabricated, and some of it is twisted facts.
For instance, Dack is a full inch taller than I am and the weight I should be (my high metabolism keeps me in the 120 lb range. I am and have always been skinny)

To be honest, I just made a fursona up on the spot based off the stuff that I'm exposed to.
The creation of my fursona is influence by a few things.
One, I watched this cartoon called Untalkative Bunny. Maybe that's why my fursona is a rabbit because it's based off the fact I'm like the untalkative bunny in real life?
Two, I like metal/rock music, that's why my fursona looks like a metal band guitarist.
Three, I like horror/paranormal stuff (paranormal documentaries), so my fursona name is Sinister. (SinisterRabbit, also my username in some sites but not here)

My suggestion is don't rush it and certainly don't force it. Take your time in creating your Fursona. Let your interests, values, goals, dreams, likes and dislikes all flow into his or her creation.

The creation of Cyrus, my fursona, took me about 5 years to fully realize. It is an amazing, exciting, but rather long tale that I may share one of these times.

Mine is pretty simple. I chose a rabbit, because I like them. And physically, my fursona has the same proportions I did when I made it. Lastly, I chose my favorite colours for the coloring. Also added the bandanna I wear often.

Yeah, I thought about the outfit too, I think I'm gonna add a scarf and coat to mine. It also kinda makes sense since cause Fennecs love the heat.

I don't think I have any pictures with clothes on. SFW pictures of my fursona are just my fursona without genitals. I really should fix that, I imagine wearing what I wear IRL usually.

keep your shirt on, cowpoke.
for the most part, just go with what you like personally and what has some level of meaning to yourself as opposed to what might be popular ir is what others are doing; your sona should represent yourself and what you're about, either literally or metaphorically. so really, roll with the things you like and enjoy!

I've always liked rabbits and foxes- along with contradictions, puns, and other plays on the norm, so I went with a rabbit/fox mix. foxes eat rabbits, haha.

I like the idea of giving my fursona my body type. Although that doesn't really change much because I'm an energetic fast smallish skinny hairy thing in real life. So I guess that doesn't change much.

If you wanna, it's not too uncommon to have a nude fursona though. I plan on keeping mine clothed since I'm not really on the sexual side of the fandom. If There's ever porn of mine it'll be a joke thing.
