Why did you pick your fursona's species?
« on: September 18, 2013, 10:24:14 pm »
I made Alisha a wolf-dragon because my two favorite animals are dragons and wolves. Also, it pays homage to my childhood; my first fursona/character was a self-named red wolf dragon (except I spelled the name Layci instead of Lacie). Alisha is a re-invention of Layci; just blue and silver instead of red and gold and less of a Mary Sue.

Jeffery is a Siberian Husky because Siberian Huskies have always been my favorite breed of dog. When I was younger I was obsessed with dog-sled racing (mushing) and I dreamed of racing in the Iditarod Dog Sled Race in Alaska someday.

Tasha is a Slavic Lion because that breed is a breed I made up. It came about when I asked myself, "What if female lions had manes, too? But shorter than the male's?"
I've left (again), probably for good but idk. If you wanna talk to me outside the forum, feel free to email me. Just tell me who you are in the email pls

Without a doubt, I have no idea why I picked a wolf. I'm coming up with blanks but the real question should be why is my fursona a spartan?

The answer is simple, because they're B.A!

Proto is a gray fox because of several reasons. First of all, I always liked foxes, wolves and dogs, but I couldn't decide on one of them, so I decided to search random images of either of those to see which one was better. I considered how much trouble I was having, so I discarded dog because there were just too many breeds to choose from. Then I decided to search for foxes and wolves that lived in my country (That would be Mexico) and when I googled gray foxes (I've seen a few here where I live) and saw them in those images I could only think "This one is perfect!".

Also, before Proto I had another fursona, but that was kind of a "Sparkledog" as defined by Wikifur. He was just a random blue canine (I never knew what I should call it xD) and I guess we can call him the prototype of Proto, or as I've come to call it Protoproto :P *Is killed because of his horrible idea*

I chose a dragon mainly because since they're fictional (to most C;) they can really be anything and look like anything- THUS it serves as a huge canvas for creativity. Plus, dragons are loyal and brave, and just freakin' cool.
I am all of these things. Modest, too //shot

Besides that I just really like animals so I have 23458234510913 fursonas of different species

I was torn between a Kit Fox, and a Gray Wolf. I couldn't decide which one I liked more though, so I morphed structural features together, this forming Gaz the Maroon Wolx!

People always ask me why he's weirdly colored, and the answer to that is because I'm creative and I love how he looks!

Gaz is the best character I've ever come up with and I'll never get rid of or forget about him.

So I Guess I chose it because it's unique!

I'm pretty into the TLK fandom and I figured that if I were going to make a fursona, it might as well be a species that's not horribly common in the furry fandom. My fur friends probably would've laughed themselves silly if I had chosen a wolf. I have nothing against wolves. They're majestic creatures. They're just SO common as far as furs go.

I agree. Wolves are EVERYWHERE in the fur fandom. Only reason why I picked my main 'sona to be part wolf was because wolves are really special to me.

Understandably so. I love wolves too. My poet's mind has to work in overdrive just to attempt to articulate their grace, strength, and beauty. L=

Fursona is an antropomorphosized version of my actual dog which is a collie.

I went for a horse as they are probably the animal I relate to best. They're so majestic and beautiful to look at but also so powerful at the same time. I also spend a lot of time around horses and have grown to love and trust them in a way which I don't have with other animals.

I unconsciously had a feeling with canines when I was younger. I consider wolves like a perfect representation of power, freedom, magnificience and primal instincts. That is why I have a wolf as a fursona.

When at first picking my fursona, I had to decide between a dragon and a wolf since I really liked both of them and no mater what combination I made I did not like any hybrid of the both that represented me. Then one day it just suddenly hit me that I felt really connected towards wolves. Don't know why it was just a feeling that hit me.

I plan to actuAlly make an alt later as a dragon.

Originally I chose the liona fursona because at the time, it seemed to reflect my leadership tendencies. A lion is supposed to be strong and I am very physically fit. But lately I felt the lion didn't quite match my personality, and one evening as I was admiring dusk, I saw a squadron of geese flying overhead. On second thoughts, maybe they were swans that I saw. Anyway, I had a poem in my journal and it came with a spectacular image of snow geese flying in the night sky. Immediately it gave me an idea: I'll adapt it to my fursona, so here I am - a snow goose. One more star in the night sky.

Yeah, I like going for simplistic characters. But if I'm feeling creative I'll make a hybrid of two animals (I try not to do more than 3, because then it gets kinda complicated). Also, I try not to overpower my characters. I'll give them "real-life" super powers like above-average strength and speed (but not like as strong as Superman or as fast as light), flight, etc. Nothing like controlling the elements or time travel.
