Hello there! As you probably know, Christmas is coming up soon, and I'd like to draw some things for people! They'll probably just be simple headshots or sketches or something, but feel free to comment with some reference sheets and stuff (and maybe a request for a holiday accessory or theme or something??)! But please don't just put a reference sheet, say something too, okay? Anything is alright, dogs, cats, bats, humans, salamanders, whatever! Don't be offended if you don't get picked! This is a holiday/happiness/gift thing, alright?
I'm also going to be doing a December Pokemon challenge thing over on Tumblr
if you're interested in that at all. (I may or may not post them here)
And now for the fursona meme! (you can skip it if you really want to, I suppose)
• What is the name of your fursona?
Aquinassar. (and Lope and Dryden.)
• Where did the name of your Fursona come from?
Hahaha, this is such a great story and no one knows it because no one ever asks about it. It was actually the name of my first World of Warcraft character, a Night Elf Hunter (that you can see in my very first deviation
here!) It's great because 'aqui' means water and 'Nassar' means protector and I didn't even know that until maybe six months after I started using the name. Lope's name is similar, except she was my main character in SWTOR, a Republic Trooper xD I don't even know where Dryden's name came from, but it fits, don't you think?
• What species is your fursona and why did you choose that species?
Canine. Mutt, mongrel, dog of no particular species. Because... I don't know what animal fits be best yet? I'm trying to figure it out, though.
• What color is your fursona and why? Hair/fur/eyes/etc
Mostly brown, with blue eyes? Mostly brown because I think that fits me. It just kind of.. fits. Blue eyes because my eyes are blue c: Brown hair tuft because my hair is brown xD
• What is your fursona's personality and how does this compare to your RL personality?
Aquinassar's personality is just like mine. I don't really know how to describe it, though, sorry! Kind of introverted, doesn't like being in the spotlight, quiet, sensitive, very non-confrontational and kind of shy. Lope is more of a form for my better traits and traits I would like to have, though she isn't perfect, by any means. She just, doesn't get upset easily, and she is very protective and a sort of guardian figure. Dryden is my negative traits and pretty much who I could easily become at my lowest point. Very violent for the sake of violence, vain, selfish, cruel, ect. She is the part of me that pokes at my insecurities and all that, and is an embodiment of my personal demons.
• What is one item your fursona owns that is significant to you in RL?
Aquinassar has a tiger eye pendant, which I wear all the time (like, I never take it off. ever) and that's pretty significant because I've had it for so long and sometimes it just nice to have something solid like that to hold. It's a little like a worry stone for me.
(she also has a red scarf thing which I have recently learned is actually called a cowl?? and I hoping to have one just like it soon, if I can figure out how to crochet and I just really like red as an accent color so while it isn't really significant in real life, I like it.
she also has a top hat which I learned a couple years ago, at my very first anime convention, that I adore and I really want one in real life.)
• What is one thing you think you would say to your fursona if you could meet?
I.. don't know?? Maybe something along the lines of, "hey what's it like to be able to do all the awesome things I wish I could do in real life?" We'd probably just sit there awkwardly since she's a representation of myself and that's what I would do if I ever met myself xD
• What is one thing your fursona would say to you if you could meet?
Look at the previous answer?
• How has your fursona changed over the years?
Haha, well, she used to be something like an ocelot cheetah thing but in her very first change that completely went away and she became a dog with most of the markings she has now. Then she got that lizard marking on her right heel and then the eyebrow markings and various other small changes, some of which didn't stick long.• How long have you had this fursona?
For as long as I've had a 'sona, I guess? I wouldn't change them to someone completely different, because they are me, but they've gone through changes to make them seem like someone else.• Would you like to be more like your fursona?
Lope: yes, a bit.
Dryden: no, absolutely not.
