When it comes to main characters, I'm quite content with them. The problem is that I might give them too much love that I forget to write other characters. When it comes to sona's on the other hand... I get irrationally stressed.

I made two characters as my sona's, one based on my positive side and one on my negative side. Problem is I feel like neither of them are good enough.. I don't know what to add to them to satistfy me.

I see! I personally try to keep sonas multidimensional, because people are not one side either and the all positive-all negative tends to wear a character down/make them seem flat at times. But if you love your characters, sometimes that's enough! Not everyone uses personal sonas as opposed to other characters.

Thanks!
And yeah, you're right. I already got his backstory and personality done, so I should give my other babs some love too. ;W;

In a way, I feel like the fursona I made more based on my negative emotions is more "me" than the other one. Fur colors were based on my skin tone and hair color, plus her personality is somehow closer to mine. The other is my more hyper and goofy side (which I show quite often nowadays). I'm still developing them and considered scrapping the sona I made based on my more positive goofy side since I don't find her necessary. Another problem with that is I'm kinda attached to both of them. lol

But I might figure something out. :3

I've had my fursona for a year now, and I've twice made a minor change to it, but right now I think that it's like me so perfectly that I won't chance it until I really have a need to do so. :)

I've had the same oc for quite a while now... I can't even say what exactly I like about her anymore except for the fact that she represents me perfectly. But hey, I still love her to bits and use her more than all my other characters uvu <3

Well, I do have a sort of cat fursona type thingamadoodle, but she's the main character in my Warriors fanfiction... I feel a little shamed that I'm not writing my own stuff but I'm willing to write a fanfic. :I  But that character is pretty much a translation of myself, so, I guess you could call it a fursona. But I'm really not sure if I'll keep it or what..

Fortunately I don't have any problems regarding their roles, but sometimes their design is a bit difficult to decide upon. That goes especially about my fursona, but I rarely draw him coloured nowadays.

Well I just made my fursona, but I went right back and changed her color scheme- I'm beautifully happy with it now though. I think you kinda get this feeling when you finally found the right character- at least I did- that feeling you could draw them forever.

I've had loads of OCs in the past, and I had one for quite a while that I was planning to make my DA OC before I created Kitt.  I started to feel like I drew that character too much and it didn't seem to fit my personality.  That's when I created Kitt and designed her to be more like me, I guess, and I rarely draw her just to keep her more "fresh", in a way.  I've been thinking a lot lately about changing her up though, although I haven't completely decided on what to do yet. :p

Most of my OC's have nothing but their personalities and such figured-out, I struggle with designing them. Not great at naming, either... I work better when just messing around with designs, because once I create a character, IDK what to do to finish his/her concept... /:

My fursonas (I have a catsona and a wolfsona) are basically me in a nutshell, but every once in a while I switch up their physical design a bit just to see witch way I like then better.

I'm not completely sure what you're asking... also, I don't usually redraw my characters or sometimes really change their story and stuff so I don't know. Sometimes, I draw somebody and go, I need a story for her (I mostly just draw girls so Free Shrugs! + PLZ ). When I have a story idea, I sometimes have an idea in mind (I don't always draw it though). Sometimes I'm thinking of a character (may or may have not drawn yet) and I have trouble matching the two up, figuring out how I want her to be and her design. Also, what's a fursona?

A fursona is an animal character representing you. Basically an animal persona :P

Mine is set. I'm not changing her anymore. I'd had her in the back of my mind since I was very young, but didn't really draw her out or have a set design in mind. A couple of years ago, I designed her and then it took me about a year or so to make very minor changes and tweak her to my liking. And that was it, no more changes. I feel like I'm completely happy with how she is now. The only thing I might do is work on some new outfit designs for her, for later on. I'm still working on getting my ideas for her story organized, but when I finish my current project, I plan to give her lots more attention then. c:

I do have one character that I had considered my fursona. But honestly I can't even decide anymore. I want to change her completely and uproot her but I also don't. I feel like all my characters are kinda me in one way or another and I love pretty much all of them.
