Help With Fursona Coloring/ Ideas
« on: December 22, 2018, 06:21:06 AM »
My current fursona is Jeffery (my icon), but he is more like my main character rather than an actual representation of me; therefore, I decided to start making my new fursona!
HERE IS THE CONCEPT: https://ibb.co/6b0nNKh (It is in watercolor, fyi)

I started making "Scout"; however, I am having a hard time coming up with unique and interesting ideas to make them pop.
That means I'm looking for:
-Marking Ideas
-Color Variations (keep it moderate, not "make it rainbow!" please :))
-Hairstyles/fur tufts
-Species changes

I am thinking maybe an Arctic Fox/Wolf hybrid with winter and summer colors. I was deciding brown, black, and white as the primary colors, but I'm unsure if other colors will work with the concept (thats why I need your guy's help with color ideas).
Remember, the reason I'm asking is because I want random ideas you think will look good on the fursona. This does not mean I will use every idea, but I want to get fresh input and your great ideas!  :D XD
Please let me know what you think I can do with Scout!

(P.S. Just ask yourself "If I could make this fursona look better to me, what would I add?")

I've always been fond of more naturally coloured fursonas, so I think it's looking pretty good already. The colours work well together.

For markings, if you wanted to stand out a bit more, you could try some black facial markings, like around the eyes and muzzle. I also think it would look good with more black/brown around the shoulders and backside with the white belly.

Thank you! I'm going to try adding some black markings around the face and see how well it balances :) Thank you again for the suggestion!
