*scratches ear* um, hi, i'm mander. dreamer sent me a link to one of the forums that has to do with virginia furries and i decided to join, it looks fun enough to haunt for a while each day.

so, a little bit about me::
i write a lot, as well as draw, and i read a lot more than i'm willing to tell. i have an account on deviantart, i'm pixiepanther, and you can find some of my horrible old writings (fanfiction) on fanfiction.net where i'm "goth senshi pheonyx". i'm really into music and i'll listen to just about anything, especially if it's asian, rock/metal, industrial/trance/techno/etc., or classical. i'm really into paranormal phenomena, love history, and have a knack for getting on peoples nerves when it comes to stuff i may or may not know. i love MegaTokyo and i can act like a total ditz or airhead at times when i'm not paying attention or i can't hear someone.

but...uh...i think that's about all i can say unless you want to know more. i don't really know.

Heya, mander. Welcome to the furtopia.org forums.
The furs are pretty good and well behaved here, yet fun and friendly, so I'm sure you'll have a good time here.
Be sure to check out all the forums. You'll probably find lots here that'll be interesting for you.
See you around!

Another welcome Mander,

It's always good to see another fur on board!  Things can get pretty silly on here at times, so a little airheadeness will fit right in. '<img'>

Where in VA are you and Dreamer from?  I'm from the Northern VA area, and there is a fairly large group of furs up here.  There is also a Hampton Roads / Newport News contigent on Furtopia.

u dont no boredom until u've lived in England. the girls are like bricks (flat on both sides), but i that dont concern me for obvious reasons (im gay), american guys are so much cuter '<img'> , its either raining or cloudy, we get all the movies videogames CDs ect last in the world. theres more clothes in america. you cant buy anything from atticus or macbeth ect. Our prime minister has his head up george bushes butt. he follows everythin he sez. its a lot colder here. ok ive had my moan. u get the picture right?

Hi Mander! Welcome to the boards. I too live in VA though in the northern part. I often times travel south to see the caves there. Its nice having mountain ranges...er hills...out where you are. Sooner or later I want to have  asmall get together with all of the VA furs and just hang out for a week end. Perhaps you too can join in the fun?

One thing youll find is that everyones art always looks beter then your own. Its a flaw all artists have. Just remember, they look at yours too and say the same thing hehe.

that all sounds really awesome. i'd love to go to england just for fun one day and bug everyone. '<img'>  

also, the thing about getting all the VA furries together would be so fun, i'll make sure to drag dreamer along with me; and she's mentioned that to me before because she likes my art more than she likes her own.

Welcome to our forums, Mander!

I was trying to find your site on DA but have no idea how to get around on there. Do you happen to have a url that you can post here for us to just click on?

As I mentioned to Dreamer, you are more then welcome to get web hosting here at Furtopia as well!

I have to agree with Midnight's last sentence. Every artists believes that everyone else's art is better than their own. That is what makes artists strive to improve, I think.

Again, welcome and make your self comfortable. There are plenty of seats around.

um...link link...*thinks* ya sure, i'll post a link. although DA totally confused the shiznit out of me -_-;;

deviantart

i agree with the sentence and all about each artist thinking others work is way better than their own and people strive to be better, i find my stuff odd to no end. and i feel kind of bad because i haven't posted here in a long while, i guess i just haven't really been in the mood to post on message boards or something *shrug*

Welcome to Furtopia, mander! I am Khroan Starhoof, resident horse-girl. You're going to fit right in.  '<img'>

And, by the way, your art isn't too bad. You have nice ideas, but it'd be neat if you could ink over your pictures or colour them. But it always seems that people draw their best pictures while they're bored.

hmm, i want to go to england and have wanted to go since i was a kid. just to see what everything's like over there, especially since it seems more interesting than boring virginia.

and i'd love to colour some of my art but i just don't have coloured pencils anymore. they disappear from me for some reason, but i have no excuse to not ink my stuff. the inking pens i have aren't mine although i was told i could use them whenever i wanted. but that's definitely no excuse, so i guess when school starts back up i'll do more drawings and ink them.  '<img'>   and bear hugs are always welcome

Thanks for the link, Mander. I think your stuff is so cute! Very simplistic yet shows a lot of emotion.

Great stuff and thanks for sharing.

thanks for saying that my art is cute '<img'> makes me a happy little kitty. i should've gave the link earlier on, and i'm trying new things so maybe something interesting will come out of it. *shrug* i'm just glad people like it....but i kinda don't get the whole "simplistic yet shows emotion" thing, but that could also be attributing me to being a scatter brain until school starts--then i get a little better.
