I'm Back (but different)
« on: October 08, 2016, 03:48:25 pm »
Hello all! [apologies if this isn't the right board to post]

I'm quite certain many of you will not remember me, I haven't been on here in about 3 or so years. Perhaps a few mods I was close with might, but I'm not sure.

I used to go by "Mozilla," "Rico," and for a long time "Sabine."

But! I am back.

For those of you who have no idea who I am, my name is Mackenzie. I'm 18 years old, and I'm an undergraduate graphic design/concept art major. My favorite animals are birds, dragons, reptiles, and canines. Originally I was studying to be a veterinarian before I went into the arts, so I'm very knowledgeable about all kinds of animals in general. Like I mentioned, I am an artist, and I love to draw and design. I'll definitely post my art here at some point, I've improved a ton. I am also a cosplayer! I love video games and cartoons, and I love to go to conventions.

I left the furry fandom because........ to be quite honest, there were some people in it who were making me not only uncomfortable, but ashamed to be associated with. I realize now that they were just a few people out of thousands, and I am happy to be back. I don't think I ever truly left, but it feels good to embrace something I love again! But also, I think this break was good for me, because I grew a lot as a person and matured much better on my own. I'm glad to have a new front to put out to the community!

My current fursona is a Dutch Angel Dragon named Red Velvet. I legit just made her like, 3 days ago, but I feel very passionate about this character now. (also, technically DutchAD's don't have genders, but they use pronouns to simplify things, so RV's are she/her).

I am working on finishing her reference this weekend but! Here is a work in progress:



(please pardon the resolution if it shows up low, I'm grabbing this off my tumblr for the time being)

I can't really think of much else to add right now, but please feel free to ask me any questions or talk to me. I've missed everyone and I look forward to making new friends!

Welcome back to FT, nice to meet you!

I joined in August so I have no idea what it was like here three years ago, but I think FT is a pretty great place right now. Good to see you come back! Hope you enjoy yourself. Feel free to talk to any of us newer members, I'd be happy to say hi and I'm sure many of them would as well! :fox-:):
