Zootopia Fursona by artbirchly Zootopia Fursona by artbirchly
So, introductions. This is Birchly, a gerenuk (look them up, they are like adorable alien gazelles). He’s an artist, film nerd, and closet Gazelle fan (he prefers her earlier stuff). He also has a penchant for dry jokes and crazy shirts.

Speaking of, why feathers? Normally I would have gone with a bird fursona, but for Zootopia I figure that’s just not an option. Best-case scenario I’m someone’s pet. But under the fur-cumstances (kill me!) I think I found a suitably dainty prey mammal.

Also I make no apologies for the obnoxious background. Birchly deserves nothing less  XD

Love your fursona, I could really see him fit into the movie, stylewise.

You are more than a fantastic artist. I think you could be one of the best artists in the world.

He looks like a charming fellow!  I bet Gazelle's earlier stuff was a lot less digital.

Nice work with a natural interaction, don't know why I haven't been here earlier?
If I was looking for a fursona, I'd be a bird as well, but as a Zootopia fan, well, later I guess.

Mostly a design choice. Gerenuks in particular are extremely interesting to look at (and draw), and we have *enough* in common physically.

Hehe, yeah... I am good at changing around all of a sudden. Unless I completely missread your sentence there and missunderstood it all. :P

However, just got to say, Birchly, your art is fabulous. Okay? :meow:

Thank you  :]  I just meant that "hipster" would not be an entirely unfair label given my fashion choices. I don't consider myself very trendy, though.
