What was your old sona?

Before I had an account here or on the main site I had a (real shocker) canine character. He was going to be a part of a huge story but I ended up not really clicking with an anthro only story or a canine character. Then I went with a saber tooth tiger who was turned into a bison. Finally I ended up with my minotaur, Kayn.
How about you? Is your current sona your first?

Hello, Proto
Nope. Mine was a generic royal blue fox.
Gone through a few designs until this one, but I have a sort of headcanon with this character who may or may not eventually bite the big one, which at that point, I'd have a new character lined up.
 

Pomorek

Antelope-Addicted Hyena
Long before I discovered the existence of the fandom, I was having some similar ideas independently. Including representation of myself as an anthro character. So, I was a jackal back then. Only after finding out that there are others like me, and giving more thought to the matter, I changed to the much better fitting striped hyena. And I stay that way since about a dozen of years now.
I do have an antelope "secondary" but that's for the aesthetic reasons mostly.

This was my old fursona. His name is Sunburst, and he's a character from one of my old stories. I still use him as a character, though, he's just not my fursona anymore.

My first attempt at a fursona was a lynx/owl hybrid. I almost never drew them though, as I wasn't really feeling it. My current fursona is a winged anthro canine. I've modeled an avatar after them in Second Life, and have visions of them as a future techno-avatar representing my future self. Their coloring is still subject to change, however. One possible solution is to give them a spring/summer coat, and a fall/winter coat. That way, I get to use two color combinations. The summer coat is teal, black, and white... whereas the winter coat is various shades of brown, orange, black, and white. They might also shed their wings from time to time, which would simplify their design and generally make it easier to work with.

I also started out with a canine character, a Malamute named Sweet Pea...before becoming a skunk.

I suppose at least fluffiness of coat has been a constant, if not a bit of stubbornness.

My old sona happened to be.....phew, quite a lot really! I had to count.....142 of them....but to spare you the long, LONG list, I'll only name four.

1: Vioko Moonlight, an old sona with the generic colors of black and red. I still use him, though he isn't a main. He was a uniquw Bloodfox species.

2: Kyosiko Kazare, a unique little raccoon from before. He was made with the inspiration of Rocket Raccoon, since he was someone I looked to long ago. A neatly colored green and black raccoon, whom I later named Rue Genesis, and starred in a story dubbed Genesis: G-Files. He also happened to be a raptor in my other story, Overheat: The Series, though it only has a part one.

3: Meveretto Malikune, a black and white cat whom I took the liberty of making once. He was an old sona used back then, back when my interest was high in Fast and Furious, (which I still love!) His first name, Meveretto, (similar to Toretto), was inspired by that, and he was supposed to be the feline drifter and whatnot. Eventually, it was Kyosiko who became that.

4: Javelin was a bunny I had made based off of the animated Newgrounds animation Bunnykill, something I binge watched even when I finished it all. All in all, the creator eventually stopped making more, but Javelin lived on in memory, since the main character, (and a boatload of others), died in the animation. I made Javelin to be a red bunny with piercing yellow eyes, which applied for a good amount of time. He'll eventually undergo a re-design at some point.


And there you have it! All my old characters! (Not really, but you get the idea)

Wow that's a lot! Good on you for counting, sure that took a while
 

pascalthepommie

Femboy Pommie artist with a donut obsession
My first sona was a Hyena, I actually selected him because friends said I reminded them of one but it never felt completely right. He was kind masc and a bit too...fierce and manic.
It wasn't until I started going to furry dances, I love to dance, that I felt the need for something a bit more soft and friendly. My absolute neeeed for a bouncy tail led me towards a Pomeranian. After the first time wearing my new custom pommie tail and ears I knew it was the perfect fit. Pascal is far more like me than my last sona was :) I still have a special place in my heart for my yeen but my pommie is me.
 

Zehlua

Magepunk Fashionisto
Zumbaiiah the Thunder Dragon. He was black with grey stripes, yellow eyes, and brown leathery wings. Could see sound and spit lightning and roar like thunder. Had knives and spikes on his head, elbows, and feet. Sabre toothed as well. Big, cool guy. Guardian of a magic rainforest.
 

Raever

Chaotic Neutral Wreckage
I don't know if I can call her a Fursona per say, but she was an animal roleplay character I wrote on an old Wolf RP forum back in the day. It was on that same forum that a member of the community introduced me to FA (side note: That was the only member I knew who was a Furry over just a writer swept up in books like Warriors).

So, I give to you an 8+ year old woofer who could be considered my first "Sona"...Revy.

1513881572.raever_gift.gif

Revy was what was known as a "Virosa" (a species of fantasy Wolf on the site; they were known for being savage, superstitious, and having Scavenger tendencies). She was initially away from the main pack, working with nomads and tricksters as a way to stay close to loved ones. However, due to a spying mission gone wrong she was captured in the middle of a war zone and her pack presumed her to be dead.

In reality I wound up leaving the site due to personal reasons and after a few years the forum itself died. So the roleplay ended.

RIP winged woofer.

Side note: Yes, that is a mask from Bleach. I was a total weeb as a kid and I kind of find it amusing nowadays. I have humored getting art redrawn of her if only to get something of a "closure" for the character but...because the artist who initially did the gift art (https://www.furaffinity.net/user/priestessshizuka) isn't usually open for commissions, I haven't really seized the opportunity.

Extra note: please keep in mind this art is VERY old and also was done for free. The artist is so, so talented and should not at all be judged by my tween weeb trash requests of years past lol.
 

Lyrule

Warrior of the Sun
For me it was an arctic wolf called Oreo. xD Her design (or lack there of, lol) has since been retired and I no longer use her since I don't resonate with her anymore. Now I've got better, more devolved characters so I guess I have Oreo to thank for kickstarting the process. : )
 

Matt the Terrier

Swing the Mood! =3
Believe it or not, Matt the Terrier was not the first thing I considered being. The first thing I considered was being a Mammoth Mutt re-color (gee, I wonder why), and then I toyed around with being a cat for a short period of time before I created my current sona in 2008.
 

Jackpot Raccuki

Although half canine, is not a wolf.
A grizzly bear that was mixed with a custom species of mine, basically a grizzly bear but more fluff and some canine features, a lot of people will know him since I was him for most of my time on the forums.

Funnily enough his name is Like, so Jackpot isn’t the first stupid name I had but it’s closer to my real one.

Pic below is me and my bf, unlike me he is still a cute mouse but used to be a wolf
 

BlackDragonAJ89

Bumbling Everyman
Well let's see, I've been several things over the years. Earlier this year I was really going through some rough times trying to figure out what species I wanted to be (Covid didn't help these matters either, nor did moving again). Anyway, here's a complete list of all the species I've been before. Oldest to newest:

- Western Dragon
- Shark
- Shire Horse
- Incubus
- Orc
- Gazelle
- Some kind of Cattle
- "Ambiguously" Canine
- Some Original Hybrid Creation
- Snake
- Eastern Dragon
- Lion

I feel like the Eastern Dragon and Lion are probably where I'm gonna stay though. After all, the whole "cats are dragons" trope kind of works for Eastern Dragons, and when no fantasy creatures are allowed, a lion is fine too.
