lol this drawing is 80 million years old. This red + black dog thing has been my sona for.. 15+ years now. I'm ancient I guess. The color scheme is exactly the kind of edgy bs a tween would think of but everyone got so used to this being my fursona that I just kept it. Over the years the red has gotten toned down and the wings have become optional and simplified (I guess they're more like a wing silhouette than a real wing.)

Basically they are just made up of all the things I like to draw (dog legs, tall ears, long snout, wings) but with my body type, hair style, personality, and clothes. Some people think a lot about what kind of animal represents them but I sure didn't. If I had to make a sona again today they would probably not look much like this at all, tho it'd still basically just be an animal version of me. The one un-truthful detail (other than the fact that I am not as skinny as I was when I drew this lol) is the eyecolor, and that's just because the design needed a little extra contrast that dark eyes weren't providing.

Now that I no longer do commissions/sell at cons I don't need to worry about stuff like branding so this character doesn't get a lot of use. I'd rather draw pics of my other characters I guess!

Here's my sona! I like somali cats, and I like spooky things, so I made her a spooky cat! She's basically based after myself personality wise (but.. y'know.. more cool), and I used my own hair color with her (and used clothes I would like to wear b/c comfy)
Sonas can be kind of difficult, but I think once you decide what kind of animal/person/made up creature it'll be, you can decide what general aesthetic or mood you feel you like best and kind of make them match that! If that makes sense ;w;

My general avatar/sona is this self-indulgent lil twerp: toyhou.se/1703471.mochi
He's nothing like me, but really more like how I want to be, if that makes sense. Cheery and fun-ish?

This is my sona here! toyhou.se/1139875.poupee

the idea came from an irl puppy toy ive had for a really long time, and i still sleep with it everyday. the name i chose is a bit of
a play on words it sounds like "puppy" when you pronounce her name in french, and the word means "doll" ;u;

This is Scorch!
Scorch by mothquake
I sort of just....drew him. I remember I sat down and wanted to draw something like Bambi, and later ended up making a species based off of him. He is my main sona right now! I just love how dainty and fluffy he is. ♥
As it stands, Scorch is a representation of myself after I came out to my friends as transgender! He holds a very special and important part to my identity.

My less used sona is Jazz!
Jazz by mothquake
Originally, I saw this design on FA in a reminder post, and immediately had a mighty need, and adopted them as a sona. I made Jazz part of another species of mine called Mimics, and I use Jazz as a more current representation of myself. I still identify as transgender but I am content with my body enough that I don't have a need or want for transition and hormones, so with Jazz being a Mimic, I use them to freely express myself in feminine ways (example: YCHs where Jazz is drawn freely as presenting totally female or totally male) the way Scorch cannot represent me, since as a sona, he's dmab and always will be (though I feel I should have made him dfab f-to-m now, I am going to keep him as dmab).

I have a retired sona called Lilith, and she represents me/my life before I came out as trans and before I really considered my gender identity.

I do have a fourth named Enigma but they're a fusion between Scorch and Lilith and represent my...darker times in life and deeper personal struggles with a lot of things

Lilith and Enigma are more used for symbolism now, and not as active sonas as much as Scorch and Jazz are. :) Enigma is more used in negative emotive artworks and vent art..thankfully I haven't needed to draw vent art lately.

well uh

this is entity
toyhou.se/2078425.unknown-enti…

they're a weird cat thing. i invented them because i love cats, black-grey gradients, galaxies, and the color purple, so i combined them a little. they were also inspired by the owl city song "cave in".

my advice: think about songs and things you find pleasing, cool stuff you know, and look at pictures of them together while you're working on it.

hope this was helpful<3

It has taken me many years to narrow down a design I like XD. She's a river spirit born under the element of water. She maintains the safety of the forest creatures that live nearby, and has been known to wander to the aether fields, a biome of pinkish gases so dense that whales can fly in it, and weightlessness is a way of life.

To be honest, I could babble about it for hours XD

But I have a question? Do you ever open interpretive commissions? Such as a commission where I would give you her image and ask you for your interpretation of her as a humanoid. I would love to get one if you ever open for them .♡.

Hey there! What a lovely sona <3 Gorgeous!! Yes I would definitely be willing to do an interpretive commission! 
I'd be willing to do one where I sketch it out based off of my interpretation however, there might be a slight increase in price depending on how detailed you want the design to be!

It however, won't work as a custom but mainly off of my own interpretation of her!! (You will see a sketch of course, but it won't work like a custom where I normally would go back and forth with clients to make sure every little detail is prefect!)

Ahh nice !! <3
I'm so happy you like my stuff! Yours is amazing !!!
And I would think about $40 for a full-body, fully-colored? Maybe an increase of $3 for the designing fee so overall about $43?^^

This is ikkuinu! cdn.discordapp.com/attachments…

Her appearance stems from my mascot oc ikusa! I love short hair on girls so i basically chopped off ikusas ponytail and threw on some dog ears! Im very much a dog person and i feel like i relate most to that kind of animal since theyre very loyal and can be kind creatures!

I basically just took all the things i like, dogs, a bubbly nature, and the color orange and designed a mascot type look ^ v ^
