More Blue Design Blabber

Journal Entry: Mon Jan 14, 2013, 4:01 AM



Honestly... I absolutely love how Blue's new design looks, but, I'm still not happy.
I'm almost thinking it might be time to put currant Blue with Old Blue, and start over.
Not like, entirly over, but a lot different from where she is now.

And I know a lot of people are going to freak about that, but Blue is /my/ fursona.
It bothers me more then anyone that I'm wanting to change her.
Blue is very important to me. More important then she could possibly be to anyone else.
So when I'm not happy with her it makes me pretty upset.

I'm not sure what I want Blue to be at this point. I know a tri-colored Corgi, and likely mostly/entirly natural colors/design.
(She would remain a Corgi mix, and her body shape would stay the same)




At this point though, please don't get too worried or anything, I might not change her.
Maybe lack of sleep right now is getting to me.

Maybe mix the colors up a bit, make the darks a little lighter, y'know?
Anyways, this is YOUR fursona, therefore it is YOUR choice.

Blue,I think your sona' is amazing!
Though maybe before you decide final, you should mix up the colors,and
get inspired from other sona's maybe? I wouldn't change the blue until
you knew you really loved her new design.

I have multiple fursonas in different styles and different species that I'm not sure what to with :/

I think Blue's current design is great, but it seems to be missing something...Just change her until you are happy and get some rest.

I so understand your problem. I've never really been able to find a name for my fursona that I liked AND that fit both me and her >.< (Since most people call you by your fursona name and nicknames are just fun to have XD) Maybe there never really is a satisfaction^^' Change is almost always a good thing^^

For me, I actually have had four characters that I feel represent me (though one's not on dA at the moment). I think it would be cool if you used all the prominent changes in her design as separate characters in their own right. And whichever one you're more comfortable with as your fursona, then she will be the one drawn the most. But if you really don't want her old designs as different characters or whatever then that's ok, it's just a suggestion (I hope I worded all of that right).

I agree with what someone suggested. Maybe you need a break from drawing Blue. Try your other characters or something! Ultimately, it lies with you. I just hope you're happy with whatever you want to do. Being happy with your fursona can be a very difficult thing.

Being a firm believer in one doing whatever he/she wants, I think you should do whatever you want with Blue. That said though, please don't make her (possible) new design too different/complicated :P You'll be having some fan art coming your way soon :)

Yeah, it's your fursona. I don't really know why people are getting so butt hurt over her. I mean, your fursona is like, you, but in animal form. So...It should change as you change, and develop with you. ;-O

But, I say you can change her all you want, I mean, like you said, she is yours after all! :shrug:

Honestly, I prefer Blue's old design. My favorites are probably the 2010-2011 (I think?) kind of designs, so that's why. But like you've said, she's your character and if you want to change her, no one else should have a say.

Maybe just don't draw Blue for a while. Give your brain a rest from her, mull over some ideas, and come back to her refreshed.

Maybe you could ask some of your friends to come up with design ideas and try working off of that if you really want to change her. It worked for me one time.

But it's your choice not mine. I love all your characters' designs, and that counts for all of Blue's designs, so I'm perfectly fine with what you do. No need to pile on pressure.

Try making her blue since her name is Blue. w jk jk

Just like about 20 other people have said, it's your character so it's up to you. Whatever makes you happy.
I was recently messing with my character (who represents me), and she was a cat, but I was getting tired of it, so I changed her to a bat.




I know I changed her species, but still! Hopefully you find something you like! (:

Do what you want not what others want, your fursona meant to represent you so you can do what you want with her. Hey you could even turn her into a snail if you wanted to. /lameassjoke/

Trust me , Blue, I know how it feels. I've changed my fursona like 3 times in the past 3 months because I wasn't happy with it. I'm hoping that this one I have now is it, lol, but still, just wait and look around and think about it. Make sure you actually like, be honest with yourself, don't just say you like it because you don't feel like searching for a new one anymore.

I would say it's probably the hair? I don't know, just Blue's hair gave her something, including a few of the blue markings, since I would say it's one of Blue's most recogniseable features, s?

Why do people think she needs the color blue on her to still be blue omg haha my aunt has a black and white dog named Blue and nobody ever thought it weird.

I personally think natural colors are super cool and each time you redesign Blue to be more natural I tend to like it better, so as a fan I like that that's the direction you go in. But if you wanted to make her rainbow again you should go for that too (and maybe make her every color but blue, haha!)

Blue! It's your fursona! You decide! :lol:
You should really don't care about what others' think,because she's yours,and you are free to do whatever you want! I personally love all her designs...I just love Blue,I don't care how she looks,she's always beatiful...at least to me.
Let the haters hate,and change her as you please! ^^
I suggest you to make "experiments" trying different designs,different colors and such.
After a while you'll understand which one reflects you more (at least it was like this for me) :)
I'd be glad to see more designs from you,because I think you really have a good taste ;)
Hope it helped! :D
