The orginins of my fursona come from my first fanfic. It's basically me as a penguin.

I made mine from scratch because I wanted a design that was simple and easy to draw but also... stood out. Since then they've changed to a Scottish fold :'D

That depends on a lot of things. Can Mickey be considered my fursona? I'd say not, he's evolved into a separate character. Even so, what could one consider as "original?" Luxrays are someone else's species, but I did add my own twist to them.

Even then, I did receive help from someone else- the bow he tends to wear was someone else's idea.

Nope!
I adopted my fursona, Lighty, 4 years ago from someone who was giving away their unused characters. That's also why her name isn't that great (full name is Lightning)--she's from THAT era of our art. =P I'd feel bad changing her name now though since I've had her so long.

I've tweaked her a couple times but she's got the same basic elements. I think she's still recognizable at least. Mostly just adjusted colours, added some back stripes, and rarely draw the headphones these days.

Then:
Snowy Day by LightAnimaux
Now:
American Beauty by Z00L0GY

My FIRST fursona (that I designed!) is still around too. She's maybe 5 years old I guess? Her name's Akiko. She's mostly just had colour adjustments too--her adjustments happened maybe 4 years ago, right before I got Lighty, and she hasn't changed since. [Lighty is my second fursona]
Then:
First by Z00L0GY  
Now:
Everything is by LightAnimaux
(Sorry for long comment. I've probably told you this before lol but I have fun repeating it.)

Originally the design was a normal black cat with red eyes. She's evolved into this over the past ten years, aha.

Mitty was my fursona kinda but I honestly feel she is just more of a main character now.  I've known what I've generally wanted her to look like since 2012. (Which I find crazy how she is almost 3 years old now) Her design has kinda bounced around before then though. Before I decided to make her pink with orange stripes, I wanted her to be grey with black stripes. Other than that I haven't made any huge changes maybe small tweaks, otherwise nothing too big.

My main fursona, Jade (the one I told you about. I drew her finally!), was made from scratch. She is a frost elemental shape shifter/dragon. Most of the other ones I made are from scratch. Some of them I don't even know what they will look like yet!

actually i made my first version of zaro with a wolf maker, feel free to scroll thorugh my old gallery on xWariorCats4everX xD
then it changed bc i didnt like it at all, so she only got 4 stripes and that was also too much for me xD so she got 3 stripes. but she was always a two toned wolf, and stay one owo"

My baby, Runnee, was designed back in October of 2014, when I lived with my grandparents and was lonely on a summer day.

His design started out as my other OC's design, Madi, but I wanted to change it and make him look nicer, instead of this bright blue Cx




i have too many OCs oh lordy

I designed Light by myself before joining. She had loads of changes though. I think making your fursona/main character by yourself makes them more unique and closer to you.
