Has anyone had trouble deciding their sona or is it just me?
« on: December 26, 2017, 03:23:51 am »
i've been having trouble deciding what sona i want to have. i know some of you have multiple but i only want one! it is literally so hard to choose, i wanna know if anyone else had trouble deciding on what they wanted their sona to be. i mean like name, species, color etc etc...

Yeaah, I had and still have trouble with deciding. Especially BC I suck at character design and naming.

I have the same problem, I have managed to settle on two, but sometimes I just have an identity crisis and cant figure it out.
Name's are the worst things for me. It gets too the point where i usually base said fursona around a name. (Hence Dino being dinosaur themed and Vanilla looking like a vanilla icecream.)

Oh, I've changed my character so many times because I wasn't satisfied, it's not even funny :fox-:P:

Even now I'm still thinking of adjustments I could make, like I still haven't perfected the name but I can't think of a better one

What I'm going to do is go with something on the spot, then you can change your sona while on your way to something more permanent. Colors and wanting to be "unique" is what drives me, and so when I feel like something is off, or when people might accuse me of copying someone else's sons, I try my best to change it

Yeah I have this problem, its almost a yearly thing now for me to change my main sona and even then I switch it out or re-design her often. I have multiple but I'm very picky on my main sona and my alts change so often, still debating whether I should make my pig an alt or not :P
Its a common thing really, and don't worry too much. Its normal and totally okay to change sonas when you loose connection or just bored of your current one, especially as you get older.

i suck at naming, i can come up with everything else on a whim, but when it comes to naming sometimes it takes a month for me to think of one.

Seriously, wolverines are super uncommon fursonas.

German thingy of the day:
Did you know that the German word for girl is neuter? The word is Mädchen. Let's break it apart. -chen is the diminutive(little) suffix, which automatically makes it neuter. Mäd is not a word (mädchen is a really old word that fossilized), but it derives from magd, which mean ... maid. Little maid. Ouch. But wait! When Magdchen (mädchen) became a word, Magd meant girl. So when it came about, Mädchen meant little girl. It became one morphological unit and now it just means girl. It's actually cognates with maiden!

i agree, even though nobody accuses me of copying another's sona, i used to copy multiples of other people's, but only minor things, so nobody can recognize who i'm trying to copy. i don't really do this anymore, because i want to be 'unique' too, like, who doesn't?
about the 'on the spot, then permanent' thing, i've been trying this but nothing is working for me. the first minute, i love my sona, the next, i hate them. i hate to fluctuate so much but my brain is never happy with what i make.  :sad-fox:

I've had that problem as well. I don't really know if Shia would be considered a fursona, her personality is much different from mine. Taxi and Misaki are definitely fursonas.

I have the same problem, I've been in this fandom for almost two years and still haven't made a fursona yet, my profile picture is just something I had in mind for one but never completed. I may in the future, or I may just start over. One of the biggest reasons why I don't have one is I can't draw at all, another one being I am a little afraid I will copy someone else's work.

I think a lot of people do! Its kinda hard to condense your personality/interests into a single thing, you know?  :blush-fox:

That's why it can be a good idea to make separate fursonas for different things! ^^ I try to make Kip the best generalized representation of me I can, but I also have lots of separate OCs based on other parts of my personality. Tabby's a happy-go-lucky artist, Passion loves music and is based around the type of people I look up to, Rose is a tomboyish fun-loving gamer with a fiery attitude, Dani is like me when I'm more quiet and reserved, Greyson is a way to vent/recognize/make fun of my flaws, Bahari is new but I'm trying to form her around my love for nature, Mackerel shares my passion for film...etc etc! In a way, even my OCs are like fursonas!

I find it nice to have one main fursona as a "default" but when you make more characters, it's often easy to see parts of yourself slipping in! And, in my opinion anyway, it's the best way to make a cast of personal characters! :D
