What percentage of your sonas/characters are adopts?
« on: February 27, 2017, 10:25:33 pm »
Since a lot of people here have gotten into Adopts I'm curious how many of your sonas are Adopts compared to ones you created yourself?

For me I've have 12 sonas and characters currently out of which I've designed 5 myself and adopted 7. However I've pretty much retired 2 of the ones I've made myself which would make it 3 I designed vs 7 Adopts. So I'd say approximately 75% of my characters are Adopts. I tend to like other people's designs more than my own :fox-:P:

I've bought two adopts in the past, drew them once and never used them again. So, I'd say all of my characters are my own originals.

Hmm... I have 2 dutchies, a raptor, a panther, and a lion. 2/5 are adopts, so that is... 40%?

Sona wise, only one(although may change if I can just the right lion design). Character wise, at the very least 50% of them are adopts although thats counting MYOs and characters I've actually finalized otherwise my non-adopted characters faaaaaar surpasses the amount of adopts I have XD

None yet, but I'd like to change that. I really enjoy making my own sonas/characters, but I love looking at other people's designs. I'm still kind of learning how to draw my stuff though, so I don't want to take an adopt and then not use them for months.

3 out of 12 are Adopts.

All of my characters are completely designed by me. Sure, it's a pain in the butt sometimes, but in my opinion it's worth it. I don't think I'd ever be able to see an adopt as my own real character, and it would never feel right. I'd always feel like I just stole someone else's fursona/character and therefore feel completely uncreative and unoriginal.

Its not stealing if you paid for it ^^
And you can be really creative with adopts, its just a design most of the time. You give them their own personality and such ^^

True. But I dunno. Still wouldn't feel right for me. I just feel more comfortable making my own designs, usually. xP

My sonas are now 50/50 (I created Mystic, Amelia is an adopt I got from InkRoo) however the majority of my characters are still adopted

All of my characters are completely designed by me. Sure, it's a pain in the butt sometimes, but in my opinion it's worth it. I don't think I'd ever be able to see an adopt as my own real character, and it would never feel right. I'd always feel like I just stole someone else's fursona/character and therefore feel completely uncreative and unoriginal.
It's not theft as long as you paid for them :fox-:P: (or traded or got the designers premission to take them if they're giving them away for free). It can be a bit weird if said character used to be someone's personal character but even then you're not stealing. If it's a "new" adopt (by this I mean no ones used the character before) it's the exact same as designing your own character other than the design part. For example Amlia is adopted but when I bought her all I got was one image of her, it was a feralish one sided drawing with her design on it and that's it. I picked her gender, name, age, personality etc. I decided to make her anthro, have her hair and decided she would wear clothes (I commissioned her outfits though, didn't design them myself). She's 100% my character other than the colors and patterns that inkroo designed ^^ I like adopted characters not because I'm "lazy" but because just like with art everyone has their own design style. I've designed hundreds of adopts that I've sold and I have created a distinct style and it's nice sometimes to have a design made by someone else with a different style so you can have cool patterns and colors you wouldn't have thought of (it was also helpful before I learned about design and all my character designs sucked :fox-:P:)

I now have one adopt. Man, I never thought I'd live to see the day. Still, I snatched that Dutchie while I had the chance.

Well just because you adopted a new character doesn't mean you have to put your old ones away. :/

I probably will tomorrow, or I'll at least draw my coyotedog and use her. She's close enough to Foxi, and she's a demon. xD
I just wanna get my Dutchie known a bit too.
