Fursonas/OCs you really connected with unexpectedly
« on: June 28, 2017, 12:29:33 pm »
Has anyone else ever had a fursona/character/OC that they made or bought for fun but ended up really connecting with them unexpectedly?

For me it seems whenever I made or buy a character that I think I'm going to really connect with I don't :$ it's random ones that I bought "just cause" that I usually end up connecting with the most :fox-:P:

Amelia is a prime example of this. I bought a grey kangaroo a week before her from the same artist (InkRoo) and I thought for sure I'd connect with her but I didn't so when I saw Amelia and I liked her design I kind of impulse bought her and ended up really connecting with her, she's now my alternate fursona ^^

Yes. This happened to me, when I joined up into the protogen craze. I made him up because Glitched was drawing protogens really well, and I made a connection with my proto, Marvin, a deep one at that.

My OC George. I made him as a complete joke but now he's my favorite OC.

That was actually how I ended up with Cleo as my main 'sona.
I made a fursona when I first joined the fandom, about five years ago, and she was my number one up until recently.
Low and behold, FurBakery had a suit she was selling at a ridiculously low price, so I immediately jumped on the offer. It was really hard to connect to the character at first because she was so different from my original 'sona. It was only during this past weekend that I realized that somehow, almost overnight, Cleo had really grown on me.

Yes. Hieroglyph, actually.

I originally drew him with no intent of him ever becoming a fursona, or even a "main" character of mine. I was just sketching out character concepts in a science notebook. Though I eventually started drawing and thinking of Hieroglyph more and more, until I eventually developed a unique connection with him.

I do this a lot!
My sonas are typically never intended to be sonas. Originally Nagi was just some random spider OC I made cause at the time it sounded cool and I ended up connecting with her for awhile then changing her to fit me more.
Serana was also suppose to be just an OC, was suppose to be like this vampire viking warrior thing but I ended up really connecting with her so mellowed her out a bit.

She doesn't get a lot of screen time but I also feel really connected to Belladonna who I just made to see if I could make a female incineroar work :P

My corgi, Cinema. I adopted her because I thought she was really cute and pretty, but I didn't expect to connect with her so much. Especially since I tend to connect more with cat or fox characters, it seems.

Also my coyotedog Shieru. When I made her, I honestly thought she'd just end up being an OC, but I actually found I had a connection with her from the very beginning. She's now my 5th-main fursona.

I actually have had this exact thing happen to me twice in a row now  :lol-fox:. The first instance I was making a character for the Starbound Mod Familiars (I say making I was more or less randomizing it until suddenly I found a design I actually rather liked it tweaked it to perfection. I thought for sure the character Spark wouldn't really mean that much but I wound up developing his background and personality and eventually before I knew it he had really grown on me and wasn't just a starbound character anymore even though I never intended for him to become another 'sona of mine.

I also got really connected my character Sprout even though I made him primarily for a DnD campaign that only lasted a single session. I just really loved the idea of the species and I kept tinkering around until ultimately I had a fully fledged character complete with yet another tragic back story! Still though I just really adore the species, they are just so fun and for once I created a mildly original visual design! *Gasp!*

My current (the sloth) was supposed to be just some one off design I made...but then I fell in love and decided a sloth matched me better.

God, I've made some sona's which I never thought were gonna be good, until I roleplayed with them. I've had that happen to my newest sona, Bios, the protogen, and also for my DaD Snoep.
