The last time I posted here was a while ago, so I guess I'll just post an update since its relevant.
My irl friend (who is slowly becoming a furry) said Starling's design is over-complicated. I didn't mind, but if they think Starling is over-complicated, then I don't think they've seen the vast majority of fursonas out there :\ the remainder of feedback regarding Starling's design has mostly been compliments.

I haven't gotten any kind of judgement, but I have been told multiple times that cow sonas aren't very ordinary.

A non-furry friend of mine was confused as to why Vex is bright red and not naturally colored... XD
But that's about it.  :fox-:P:

I won't be too specific, but I have received a few peculiar comments and looks because of my 'sona.

I used to have a Bat fursona, Ace, they got some good judgement. Given my class either is furry or get it from a design aspect lmao

Ghosty hasn't really gotten any good nor bad responses really. I mean I guess some people could be angry with the fact that I took a mythological creature (a Jackalope) and just made it a ghost, but I've done that to my more humanoid characters as well (Acheron (Ghostyloid) is a Ghost Demon lmao).

Gauge has gotten a lot of compliments inside of the fandom for the past couple years :D, although my father has referred to her as "Demon Cat" for some reason :?

People have judged Mystic because she doesn't have udders :fox-:P: I don't get it tbh. Their excuse is "it's not anatomically correct" ?? She has boobs and since she's an anthro I don't understand what possible purpose udders would serve (and why do people think it's "anatomically correct" to have both boobs and udders, they are the same thing)

That's it though. Most people seem to enjoy her design and most people seem to enjoy my alt sonas designs ^^

I got my first few negative comments on my sona a few months back on Furvilla for being "too human" :'3 (even though it passed and is still up)
Other than that, only good comments despite her being a mishmash of random things :P

Some people don't like dave just because they're like "oh the fox fursona's been done many times over. How unique you are :P"

Meanwhile I'm like "I've loved foxes since I was like 12... Let me make my fursona whatever species I want it! Even if it's been done many times over!"

And then some people didn't like some art of Dave I made (colored in a furvilla base and it wasn't the best edited...)
And the main issue with that was his fur was a bit on the reddish side when I colored it and then the shirt was a very vibrant blue. It just hurt some people's eyes... Didn't hurt mine though and a lot of people liked it despite how weird the shirt looked on him.

I've only ever had someone tell me that a bat is unique, and one person disliked my choices of clothing for Setta. I think the gravest insult to my sona is the sheer lack of bat linework available. I usually use cats (as is pretty evident by the face) but I should probably use foxes instead. 

I imagine that when I make Aktif, there'll be comments on a) Oh, another wolf. Sooo unique and b) ...why the heck are her scars glowing? So that'll be fun! 

I also have a friend who would probably really like it if I made a cat fursona, which would be really cool if I knew what kind. Maine Coon, maybe...?

Assume people judge my fursona based on the fact that he's a fox, even though he's a combination of uncommon fox species that I bet is more unique than most of the fursonas of those who judge me. Based on his original photo, people also call him a copy of nick Wilde. And I bet people would call him a Mary Sue if they knew about his back story, but it's completely justified for him to be like that based on his back story. As overpowered as he may be, he lives in a universe with people equally as powerful as him.

I always get "That's too creepy to be a fursona!". Aren't fursonas suppose to be what you want in a character? I always tell them "Stitches is my fursona so you don't have the right to change what I love about Stitches". All of my fursonas have pure white eyes because that's what I want from them. I want a running theme in my characters.

Never judge a book by its cover. Never judge a furry by its looks. Behind those blank white eyes is something no one has ever seen before. Never let anyone control you.

I often get called edgy or a "Mary-Sue" because Foxi is a reaper, even thought that's explained in her backstory. What makes it worse is her dark furcolor and her scar, I guess... I didn't do it to be edgy, people. I did it because I'm a hopeless Black Butler weeb. Get it right.

I've had a couple people judge Amelia not because of her design per say but because I have some artwork of her smoking and they said I was "glamorizing smoking and encouraging kids to smoke". I don't like nor do I encourage smoking irl (I don't smoke either) but I like the aesthetic of it in artwork. I keep that artwork under mature filters and on my private locked twitter account because i personally don't think that subject matter is ok for kids so if kids are seeing it that's their fault for lying about their age :fox-:P: as for it glamorizing stuff I personally believe that's bull crap. People will preach all day about how violet video games are ok because it's fiction and doesn't encourage violence irl but whenever something even remotely "comtiversial" shows up in art, movies or tv they completely flip and think people will do it just because they saw a fictional character do it c,: jfc people are hypocrites. Idk how you blowing off a digital persons head = ok it won't happen irl but seeing a cartoon kangaroo with a cigarette = evil, people are going to see that and start smoking. Where's the logic??
