Pair of rough reference sheets for bearbuttz's friend and sibling, who're both new into the fandom, so Brom had me help design their 1.0 Fursonas to get started :)
Top is a snow leopard/lion mix.
Bottom character is a Tasmanian Tiger

thylacines are always cutest :3 very awesome work on both ^^
random note; wonder why folks only seem to know Tasmanian tiger or Tasmanian wolf as the nicknames and not both? :o

I'm curious, how do you design fursonas for people who are new to the fandom?
on 22 May 2015 at 08:30:18 MDT
With a lot of uncertainty hahaha
Lots of asking questions and seeking a lot of feedback during the design process.

I hope I'm not prying by asking, but what kind of questions do you typically ask in that situation?

Of course I ask for the kind of animal they're looking for
I ask what their personality/behaviours are like
whether they want their fursona to err closer to the accuracy of the animal or themselves in terms of anatomy/proportion (the human vs animal ratio)
I asked for a lot of reassurance that the body types felt comfortable to them
I base the design decisions off of that and otherwise just try to make them look unique and cool. and not obnoxiously terrible with arbitrary markings and generic wolf faces.

Cool! Thank you so much for taking the time to answer my questions :3
