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:
das Haus, die Häuser. This means "house", but not home. That would be Hause, but only when it has a preposition. "Zu Hause" means at home (even though "zu" means towards), and "Nach Hause" means towards home (even though nach means "after" ... or "towards" depending on the context ... or sometimes "at").

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.
