Do you have a sona/character you own that you identify with? Or multiple? Feel free to show them and talk about how you connect to them, or why (not). If you have multiple, are there differences in the way you connect to each of them?

I think I can say that I identify with all of my characters as they all have parts of me put into their personality as well as parts of their own.

I had a fursona before. It was a dog with grey feathers and a nose similar to a beak, inside its fur was beige. I based it on the King Charles Spaniel because their ears reminded me of my hair sometimes. I wrote a journal about why I don't wanted to use it anymore, I forgot what I wrote, probably about representing myself not a good idea and stuff, but it was mostly because I liked the design and decided to keep it for a personal project. I still have the character ever since!

That makes sense! Some people like representing themselves, others don't. It depends on what works for you!

I don't wanted to confuse others about the reason of why I would use a sona.
When I want to depict myself, I prefer using a random animal, mostly one-colored because my former sona was a pain to draw actually.

Felicity~
I made her in 2016 because my old fursona, Star, just didn't really represent me anymore. She is my baby and I love her too much!

I mean, my reply here is even later (please forgive me there are so many long comments and it's hard to reply) but here we gO

That is such a ypung age to start making fursonas, but it's neat that you've had her for this long!

Also, that's one reason why I feel using fursonas as story characters doesn't work out, because there's going to be a conflict with the character as a story protagonust and yourself as a person. It helps to have two different "versions" of a character, but that gets confusing too. I just prefer to separate the two, and not give my fursona a story. It works better for me that way.

Good luck designing your new fursona too, I hope it works out well!

Yeah, wish someone had told me that when I was 8, ahaha. Now it feels too late to change it. But I guess I haven't even started writing it yet really? Huh. Anyway. Thanks!

So sorry for the late response, these poll answers have been sitting in my inbox for ages :XD:
That is super interesting! It's nice to read how they relate to you, and what parts of you they have in them. They all seem like very fleshed out characters!
Yacni and Spanaster are such good old characters, I still love them!
But yes, sometimes it's uncomfortable when it's too close :XD:

First of all, very sorry for the late reply, these have been in my inbox for ages!
I love Cynthia, blue merle dogs are so pretty! Birchripple is really nice too, I like her colours! They all look really good.

The idea of a ghost cat is really interesting, I love that! "I was mostly jealous of the ice because it didn't have to work like I was" That is the best explanation I have ever heard. Wonderful.
Thank you so much for sharing :la:

They all have nice designs! Sometimes you fall out of love with characters, it happens. But it's good you have one that takes over the role Ti had!
Sorry for the late reply also, repying to these has been a little hard with how many coments there were :XD:
