Hello, Meet Adadave!
« on: December 26, 2016, 06:58:44 pm »
Where do I begin...?

Me:
     My name's Adam, although I often use the username Adadave. I'm 16 years old and I've known about the furry fandom for just about a year now. I'm a Sophmore (10th) and used to think I knew what I wanted to be when I grew up, but realized that I wouldn't like it.
     I currently think I'm Bisexual, although that's also mixed with wondering if I'm Asexual or Demisexual in orientation. I'm kinda confused about that and the current environment I'm in IRL isn't exactly friendly towards letting me explore that question right now. But that DOES NOT need to come up (infact mods can snip that if it's too sensitive for the site). The fandom has been a haven for me to express myself recently and I don't want any of that comming up here right now.

My Characters:
     I have 3 characters, and Dave is usually seen by me as my main Fursona. Dave's name comes from a varient of my middle name, and was partially becuase back when I played a lot of games like Minecraft, which had avatars I used the username Adadave, which was always shortened down to Dave. I started using a red Fox as an avatar and eventually once I started getting an interest in drawing (last year) and discovering what the furry fandom was I created the super shy orange and brown fluffball that's now my fursona. (more about how I found the furry fandom in the next section.)
     I've also created Adolfus and Peter (Petř). These Two are, much like Dave as well, different shades of my personality that I often express through them. While Dave is shy, but he's also kind and sensitive to others, Peter (Lynx) is very extroverted, multi-lingual, and very much a people person. Although it's often hard for people to get to know Peter as he's good at hiding hurt emotions. Adolfus (Alf; Black Wolf), is a smart cookie, although he's easy to get ticked off, and isn't so much shy with others as he is often ticked off by silly mistakes, others and his own. (Especially his own).
Here's the most recent artwork I've done of them:


Me and the Furry Fandom:
     When I was 12 I was playing a lot of Sonic games, and I enjoyed them, until I started playing some of the "depression-era" games. Which killed a lot of interest in that franchise. However my favorite character was Tails, and I even drew Tails a bit. What got me more interested in Sonic for a little while was the Comic serries that was pretty good, until the entire Reset crap that ruined it because of corporate things :P
     I lost interest in video games for the most part when I was 14, and so I started instead getting back into some book serries and such. I liked reading comics (like the sonic ones before I got to the reset stuff), but I also enjoyed reading (at this point finishing :P) the entire Warrior Cats serries, I'd read Owls of Ga'hoole, and Wolves of the Beyond, and REALLY loved it. For a little while I actually said Owls were my favorite animals (harry potter, owls of ga'hoole [hated that movie] and such.) when I was 12 (sorry, some of this stuff overlaps so stay with me if I make it confusing...) So, I'm 14 and not really interested in video games. In my spare time I started watching National Geographic documentaries and stuff because I've always been the type of person who loved watching documentaries on animals. I started watching a lot about Red Foxes too since I was fascinated by the animal. (I also played piano a lot, and began trying to draw stuff but it didn't have much motivation at the time.
     And that led into me finding my first popufur. I ran into Foxalbiazul's channel with his vlogs of Ron Ron, but I didn't know what a furry was and I just watched vlogs of Ron Ron, had no idea Albi was a furry. Until one day he uploaded a video of him just walking around in the snow with his fursuit. Which was weird to me. The eyes of mascott outfits usually would creep me out the most, and so while watching the video I felt awkward because I felt I was having an endless staring contest... I looked to the comments for an explanation and heard a lot of people screaming about Furries. And I also did a google search. Wikipedia and other blogs and such had a lot positive to say and also a lot of negative stuff of things I wanted to avoid.
     I pretty much ignored the entire thing and continued watching Ron Ron vlogs. At the same time I was looking for a profile picture I liked and googled "piano fox" The picture I found was a very cute and toony furry playing piano. I saved the image and set it as my profile pic on some stuff for a LONG time. I accidentally clicked on the image's website link and was taken to a deviant art page. I was pretty anxious and hesistant because I was under the impression at the time that deviantart was a porn site or something. (I'm 14 and in a community that's very repression-based. of corse I was scared at the time of stumbling on stuff...) But I liked the guy's very chibi style and such. And that got me trying to draw my own characters. I tried drawing some of their characters, by tracing them. Eventually I came up with some of the early drawings that became Dave, and established him as an official character of mine. I felt so proud. I didn't draw often at this point. and I was 14, easily frustrated, and also remembering the fandom I heard about a while before. I knew that I'd basically created my own fursona, and was actually very anxious of people around me finding out about sexual stuff in the fandom and asking me if I was into stuff I wasn't into.
     Fast forward a couple months when I was almost 15. I did a google search of my username Adadave and found on one of the results a DeviantArt page. I thought someone had used my username for it. But I found out that it was actually a page I had created XP I had made it quickly just to comment on an image I had found a year ago, and had found it's deviantart accidentally. It was some sort of Doctor Who/Nintendo crossover thing that made me fanboy or something... At this point I'd been lurking around the Deviantart pages of a couple clean furry artists and had done more research on the fandom. I really liked the concept and the artwork. It was so appealing to me. I liked animals, thought animals were adorable, and thought the fandom was pretty cool. I'd also been drawing stuff more and was getting slightly better. I'd say about a year ago I finally entered into the fandom officially when I uploaded the first picture of Dave that's similar to his current character design.
     But I was still mostly a lurker. I found some other good furry artists and even discovered some webcomics that I was liking. But I also felt a bit like I didn't belong because all of the people I found were adults, and here I am, a teenager. so I didn't interract much. Infact I still don't, but it's more than before. I did find a couple online friends who were like me and in the younger part of the fandom on Deviant art, and also google+. (groan... GROAN IN EMBARRASMENT! >:D ) *ahem* anyways. As I uploaded more stuff on my Deviantart I started to get some more people talking to me. And as for IRL, my friends at school were accepting of my artwork and thought I was cool. (although I really only drew once in a while until the past couple months when I started not caring how stuff looks, just practicing and getting it mostly right worked). One day one of the people I watched said they'd feature the artwork of a few people who were watchers in a journal. And I got my stuff put up there. (this was an artist I followed and actually copied a lot of their stuff for a bit to get better XD). And then I started commenting on people's stuff more and more, after 6 months of uploading stuff I learned what DeviantArt's groups were and such. I found a lot of good artists and good reference material and tutorials that I had a major style shift over the summer. I also found more popufur artists, like Hukely, PandaPaco, and ThesePantsDon'tFit. And I also commented on their stuff and watched some of their art streams at times. (although Huk and Panda usually stream and they do combined streams often...). And would feel pretty happy when one of these artists would reply back on something I said on their artwork. It was pretty cool to me. Although when I mentioned I was 16 (question was brought up because I mentioned something about school in a comment once.) it felt a bit awkward because the way I write stuff for some reason comes off as more mature, and I've heard this from some friends and I wasn't comfortable with my age being known until recently. Probably because I've been less consious about myself recently.
     Now I'm in High School and I've had to make some new friends, learned some new things as well and such about myself and the world as well. (especially this year amiright? XD). I actually recently found a couple other people who were Furries at my school, in my OWN gym class too XD We've started becoming friends more and more although we both are a bit different in personalities. I'm a musical person, one guy is more of a video games guy (became a furry after his cousin dragged him all the way to Anthrocon), the other girl is not as shy as I am XD and she likes to mention furry stuff at times although not as much as the other guy likes talking about furry stuff with me. (he likes my art style a lot too so I was a bit flattered XD)

And that brings me to here. I decided to look around for more places to interract with furries about my age because it kinda felt lonely that I had this interest, but so few people to talk to about it.

So... That is Me. I like to ramble a LOT if you can't tell. I don't talk nearly this much IRL.

yeah xD I tend to have a lot to say. At least introduction-wise. XD

Cake is an interesting question... I'd say I like Red-Velvet cake. XD

Also if anyone's wondering when it comes to Music I love alternative and classical music the most.

I like Owl City, Keane, Coldplay, Some of Monstercat, the Killers, Cure, Lindsey Stirling, David Archuletta, C418, Wintergarten, and I typically love classical music and soundtracks. A LOT... XD

*snip*

Greeks were awesome tbh XD

Other than that I really like the industrial period becuase it's when life stopped getting depressing to read about.

Hey there I just read your Great wall of (Donald Trump voice) China - I mean text. While I typed up a reply I found out you just posted a reply then retyped this whole thing because thats really cool how your so open at least on one half of the book yeah? Or you just as you said, not talk much... was I taking that too much? idk. But I like how ur friend supports your art style and you have someone to talk to and someone to relate on both sides. Your comic choices down to the musical choices are all very unique and that is well looked apon in the fandom if not other places too, its nice to see more people being open and not so badgered about talking of themselves.  :fox-:P: Well I almost forgot, welcome to FT forums and I hope... you enjoy your stay :D
