Your very first fursona
« on: January 08, 2017, 04:45:06 pm »
Let's talk about first fursonas! Some can be great while others make us cringe when remember them. What was your first fursona? Are they still your sona or have you made a new one since?

For me my very first fursona was a husky. I don't have any art of her as I only had her for around 2 months before I became active in the fandom. Her name was Splash and she was sky blue with white where a normal husky is white. She also had large darker blue spots on her sky blue spots and her eyes were purple. She wasn't horrible design wise and looking back her design was a lot more creative than Solstice's but she wasn't great either. I ended up dropping her and making Solstice because as I became more active in the fandom I started noticing a lot of blue and white canine characters. I was afraid someone someone would accuse me of copying them so I opted to make a character that was more "original"

My first sona was an attempt to be original, I was on Chicken Smoothie at the time and noticed A LOT of canines so I thought "oh, I'm gonna be original and be a fairy cheetah :V'
Heres the first thing I did of her like 6-7 years ago.


tbh though take away the wings(or at least those goofy patterns) and accessories and her design is pretty simple and not bad imo but she did not fit me at all.

Dave has ALWAYS Been my fursona XD

I just got better at drawing him, changed his personality, and, like getting to know someone who becomes a friend, developed his personality.

With my characters for me they're like my best friends. It's very personal too which is why I have such an emotional connection with them.

My first fursona was a wolf named Misty. She was the strongest wolf in the whole forest and nothing could take her down, her parents died when she was a pup so she soaked her fur in their blood, she was really edgy and a total Mary Sue and I didn't quite understand what a fursona was when I was in fifth grade.

heres a pic of her i drew in fifth grade lol

I have no story to tell, and only one thing to say. I can only apologize to all of you because you have to see my first fursona every day.

My first actual "fursona" was an Australian shepherd named Compass, who wore a feather on their ear and had a dreamcatcher necklace. I kinda cringe when I think about it, but at least it wasn't too bad. I mean, it's not like they had a butt-ton of neon colors or anything (none at all, actually). Not overpowered, either.

Your first fursona is normal though  :fox-:P: Not a sparkle mess like 90% of peoples'

---


My first actual fursona, who I ended up trying to make a fursuit of. I remember being SO PROUD of my first ref sheet :P


Then came her, she's actually a pet from a long abandoned virtual pet site but I ended up using her to represent me everywhere. I was definetly into dat rave


Then the first version of Panda. I like to show her off to show how her design changed as my personality changed LOL. I used her like that for a couple years, and then once I chilled out (and got away from raves a bit), I changed her design to reflect that ^^

What was your first fursona?
« Reply #10 on: January 20, 2017, 01:54:39 pm »
I was thinking a little bit about this earlier and I was wondering what others had to say.
My first 'sona was a black and white domestic cat, named Mossy; I first made her when I was probably eight years old. It's funny to think that I started with a soft, sweet kitten, and now my main fursona is a giant, spooky monster.

Mine was a black and grey fox called Alex (who later evolved into my Alex the folf fursona). Unfortunately I don't have any pics of him left, or rather pic since the only one I had of him was from a free template I coloured in on Paint.

Oh no...

Meet Ether.

Well, it started with this Dutch Angel Dragon lineart I filled in...


Then I tried to be more "original" by making my own species out it.


I think it was a Manokit at one point as well.

They look a lot like Tayerr. Was that your influence when you made that character?

Surprisingly, no. That's one of the reasons I scrapped them, though, I didn't want it to look like I was copying.

I'd like everyone to meet my old, and first fursona-Droopy



He was a paranormal deer, who lived with a third eye that had a mind of it's own-

*slight cringe*

Droppy lived in a hospital for prophets or supernaturals, he's been stuck with me for almost a year until I changed my sona after the hiatus

!!WARNING ACTUAL BACKSTORY BELOW!!

My second fursona is Apohis, named after the greek serpent-He was a DAD who also lived in some kind of lab, originally being as dumb as a rock-He finally achieved the ability to bind himself onto the physical world with humans, however he was stuck-

Apophis actually never had a name, and was lonesome, territorial even. Desperate to escape from being sent to the "Abyss", he began his journey on Earth (or Terra according to DAD lore)-

And so, after seeing a garter snake, Apophis had the lovely inspiration to change his coat to the pattern of the snake-Though the power of reincarnation oh yeah bby-During the process, he was spotted by a scientist in his top secret lab oh wow is this dexter's labrotory or what

He lived with this human, bonded and started becoming smarter-Learning how to walk like a human, even having the mentality of one (giving him the gift of speech of course)-However, the scientist wanted to return Apoopis back to the oh so spooky dragon world as he was worried that his dragon bby would become too attached when he would pass on, plus now that this coot DAD grump was becoming more intelligent-Mr scientist became afraid of him going against mankind and all that

Yeah, robot future stuff

Apophis greatly refused and was sent to a DAD daycare center, but OMG IT'S FUNDED BY THE GOVERMENT???!!

To be continued...? Actually I don't want to write out his whole backstory o ok










Mhmm, dat sweet character development (spare me i drew all of that)

But yeah, surprisingly my old sonas were pretty subtle to say the least..Idk about Apophis though, I think him and Kane would be bffs
