i enjoy the look of K9 anthros (this includes wolves) and so that is what i created in my mind. black fur, grey eyes, fluffy tail,all pretty generic only difference is the uniqueness on the inside

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.
my fav superpower is telekenis. it is an extreemly versitile power.

That's coolio~ Telekinesis would be really useful in real life.

A lot of superpowers would be really useful in real life.

I chose a thylacine because I couldn't choose between a wolf and a tiger and for some reason I kept thinking about Ty the Tasmanian Tiger(which is weird because I only played it once a long time ago...). I knew a Tasmanian tiger was defiantly not a type of tiger but, I never really new it was a real animal before I did research on it. After, that I just fell in love with the animal and used it as my fursona! :fox-:):

I am a Wookie fursona at heart, but sadly I let others influence my thinking, thus I created a second form for my sona, a Siamese cat.

When i was in 5th grade, I needed a character for a Redwall roleplay, and I was going to be the villain, and the villains are always a set group of "vermin". So my choices were a fox, a rat, a weasel, a ferret, or a stoat, basically. There are other creatures too but those are the ones I would have picked from.

One of my favorite books was Marlfox, and some of my favorite characters were foxes, so I went ahead and made Krowdon a fox. She's changed a lot since then, in personality and appearance (she was originally male) but she's still my girl.

I've thought about changing, but imagining her as anything but a fox is too weird.  Then when I started doing Redwall things online I became Krowdon, and I've used her name for everything ever since (sometimes I had to use her full name) and when I discovered the fandom, she became my fursona.

I chose a snow leopard for a couple reasons. First of all, I love cats, so I knew my fursona would have to be a feline. Also, I feel more of a connection with snow leopards than any other animal.  Snow leopards are shy, cautious, and intelligent, and I am all of those things. Plus, I personally think that they are one of the most beautiful animals out there. I added the blue to my fursona because blue is my favorite color, and I want something unique about me.

OK, since I tried to make everything about Cola symbolize something, this may be long.

I've always loved wolves. Their just beautiful creatures, and have always been the first thing I picture when I think of wildlife. Huskies are my favorite breed of dogs, and I have always admired their strength, loyalty, and playfulness. Cola was origionally a wolf, but as soon as I found out that wuskies are actually real, he became a hybrid.

His blue coat symbolizes my favorite color as well as the blue sky of Texas, where I was visiting my cousins at the time I was creating Cola. It also symbolizes that I am cold-natured (prefer the cold rather than the heat.)

His right eye is green and his left eye is green, showing his two main personalities.

Originally, It was going to be a rat on account of how curious and clever I am. I didn't really like the thought of having it as a rat, so I decided to choose the next best thing, a ferret.  :fox-:P:

I've loved foxes since watching Robin Hood and The Fox and The Hound when I was little.
As I grew, my lack of social interaction and constant alertness made me so unconsciously foxy, although at the time I thought of myself as a cat. One day it just snapped- I am fox.

An amount of years back,  I kept seeing Border Collies all over the internet, and thought to myself 'Wow! I wanna get one of those!' So, eventually I did (a mix) and around that time I was redesigning my fursona.
Border Collies represent my 'herding' skills, creativity, and constant boredom. I just recently changed Flix's tail and ears to look more Collie-ish  :fox-:):
Now, being the daughter of Fenrir in Norse Mythology is a different story entirely...

I love the ocean, I could lay under the water forever. I float face down,near the surface close enough for snorkel to be exposed but deep enough for my ears to be submerged reducing all sound to a light murmur. I move with the rhythmic motion of the waves,my worries and anxieties drown in them,clearing my normally jumbled mind.It feels as though I dissolve into the water. I carefully scan the ocean floor searching for signs of life, with a sharp eye I'll spot a tiny hermit crab creeping by,I reach down and let him scurry across my fingers before he disappears into the sand. Sometimes a small school of fish will swim below me,frantically swimming towards any sand I may stir up. I'll try to catch the fish,and fail,sometimes my finger will glide against their smooth body,but only for a second.   I'll hold my breath and allow myself to sink to the floor,the pull of the waves is stronger here, I drag my fingers and toes through the sand. With the push of a powerful wave I'll find myself on the shore,before returning from the freedom of the water I'll feel the sand and shells move around me body.
 That sounded really cheesey, but truly is how the water is for me. So,it was only natural to choose some sort of marine life. My fursona is a shark,my favorite animal,and the king of the ocean.

Because I have a strong love for Cervines as animals. I personally find that few animals are able to match the grace, beauty and spirituality of deer. So I think they're highly representative of the beauty of the natural world. I love getting to see them in the wild. Mainly due to their shy and skittish behavior, I can draw some parallels between them and myself, helping me form a sense of relation to the animals. I chose a Fallow deer as my fursona in particular because they're one of the most abundant species of cervine in my area and I find that they're among the most ascetically pleasing.

Well... I have always adored Dragons, Wolves, Foxes, Ferrets, Unicorns, and Fairies!
I couldn't decide what to choose or what to mix, So I decided to mix them all together!
But I didn't want something super complicated that would be hard to draw over and over. So I tried to be as simple as possible with it all while still having the different species recognizable, while being colorful and unique as well as being easy on the eyes! I call her species a Druniforretoxairy. A little long and complicated I know, so Druni for short. XD Most think it's ridiculous and stupid, but I myself adore it and that's what matters. ^^

I love my fursona very much, and plan to keep her for a long while.  :fox-:):

I picked a dog because I have four dogs and they are kind of amusing to me however I was going to be a gopher but they are sort of boring.
