Hello, furs and folks!

I was going to wait until I had actual art to start posting, but I just couldn't stand lurking any longer. So you'll have to excuse my shabby appearance. I'll update once my first commission is done.

I'm inkbloom, but you can also call me Harmina if you like. It's a pleasure to make your acquaintance. ^.^

While I'm quite new to this, I'm not new to loving animals and anthropomorphic media. I can remember being young and reading Redwall and imagining myself as a little field mouse fighting for good or watching Disney movies and coming up with my own characters for those fantastical tales. I didn't have the words for it yet, but I was definitely a furry through and through.

I'm hoping to find a welcoming community here and make a lot of new friends who share this interest. I'm already quite taken by how talented and kind everyone seems to be. You all are amazing!

Edit: I have art now! Courtesy of mushroomsoup65 on the art site.

Oh, you're a mood! Haha
I doodled up my fursona and called it good despite not having any other art to post! I can't wait to see your works though~❤
It's a pleasure to meet you Harmina! I also am quite new to this as well and joined just the other day! Everyone is very nice and sweet though thus far, 10/10 can confirm.

I'm sad to admit that the art will only be mine in possession. My art skills are lacking, so I commissioned out a piece by the lovely mushroomsoup.
Yours looks wonderful though! The eye markings are quite striking.

Shhhhhhhhhh (づ ̄ 3 ̄)づ Even if it's in possession it will still be something to look foward to~! I can't wait to see what Mushroomsoup does with your piece though! ((★ ω ★))
And hey, Even if your skills are lacking, practice makes perfect and there's always room for a pencil, some paper, and a good Doodle session where having fun is a must! XD Though do take breaks when frustration brews.
And Thankyou! I'm currently line arting the piece to then color in so that it's more than a black and white sketch!

I can't wait to see it in color! What colors will you be using? I immediately think of red and white like Amaterasu in Okami.

Currently what I have in mind! Going with largely earthy tones with some markings being red and others blue ❤
So you were spot on with the red!

Hello, and welcome! Everyone here is quite nice, and I’m sure that you’ll find a place that you belong! Don’t feel bad about being somewhat lacking in art skills, you’re far better than I am! Everyone around here is willing to welcome anyone, no matter what sort of skills they may have! This is one of the most welcoming internet communities that I’ve seen! (I’ve only seen around 3, so that’s not a very high bar, but still.)

Such a lovely palette! I do love a good earthy tone. I wish more people utilized them instead of the more bright neons.
Here's mine:

Thank you for the warm welcome.
I'm not sure how you came to that conclusion, haha. My icon isn't my art either. I have adequately hidden my shame away. But I will take Eikthyrtosk's advice and start sketching more. It'll be relaxing.

Thankyou! I'd love to see more people to use earthy tones too! Like I can appreciate a good vibrant color, but I also adore it when it's done with control-Like what Kawacy does ✪ ω ✪ It gives off the illusion of vibrant, but it's actually muted and controlled and I just *drools*
You have a very lovely balanced Palette ❤

Welcome, I've only been here a week or two as well and I am relatively new to calling myself a furry. But like you realised I've probably been the 'sort most of my life, I've always loved animal based films and always fancy dressed as animals and pretended to be an aninal all the time when I was young x

Just googled them and their art is amazing. Thank you for introducing me to them. Time to go swoon for an hour.

Such an enthusiastic greeting! Thank you for the warm welcome.
I'll have to check out the forum games. Are there any in particular you'd recommend?

It's very easy to write it off as just childhood silliness, but it's a love that can really stick with a person.
For me, it's a nice form of escapism away from the dreariness of everyday.
I look forward to exploring this place alongside you.

What can I say? I am also a fellow fan of Redwall heh.

I can recommend Last Post Wins and Predators vs Prey. Those two are more like glorified chat rooms filled with nutty furs like myself. But we are all extremely welcoming and friendly! Kinda like our own little community =D Hell! Both threads have spouted an RP-esque lore of their own! x3

Hello!

I'm all for earthy tones for characters. Except for one fantasy creature long ago. I stick to actual animal colors in my art.

Oh my. It's been so long since I roleplayed properly. I'll have to find one while I'm here.
Thank you for the suggestions. I'll definitely check them out.

Oh wow. I haven't seen many 3D artists around. That's quite impressive.
