Hello One and All
« on: May 24, 2003, 02:45:23 am »
Greetings one and all.

I'm no one really all that special. Just a simple artist type that dabbles in various things here and there. From poetry, short tales, and other written media, to visual arts of all sorts from sculptures to drawing. Drawing is my biggest thing, and I tend to vary between a more cartoonish style to a more realistic style.

Sometimes the two collide. ^.^ heh

I went to school at the Art Insitute of Philadelphia, and introduced my roomies to the happier side of the fur fandom.., somewhat. '<img'> I showed em a few sites and they took it from there.., in fact some of them have become more well known amoung some of the outer circles. Me? I'm still in the background chuckling to myself. The Catalyst that I tend to be for others. '<img'> heh.

*chuckles*

I have an intrestinf sense of humor, can be perverted in some ways but totally innocent in others. I don't so much as bend to the current feel of a gathering, but I try to be as polite as possible without pushing myself too much onto other people.

My intrests range in wide catagories. I'm a fan of some things but not to the extent that others are.

I am a trekie, and yes I want to speak Klingon one day.., even though its not a "real language". I just think Klingons ROCK and should rule the world.., but no I'm not a total freak. *chuckles* ^.^

I am picky to some extents, and am terrible when it comes to going to movies. People talk about how good/bad the actors are while I'm criticizing the dern special effects. o.O Half the time people don't even see what I see. heh Ah well that's what you get for going to school in the entertainment industry. '<img'>

I have not yet graduated because of multiple reasons, of which I am currently working on right now in my life. '<img'>

I work at a retail store to pay bills, and wish I could find something job related to my degree. eh but I'm sure everyone does now, hmmn? '<img'>

Oh yes.., I talk alot and am a post-monger at times.

If I irritate, please tell me. I won't take it badly I swear. I preffer to know when I over step the lines. Don't worry about hurting my feelings, I'm not tough or such but I try to be a bit more mature about things. '<img'>

Okay enough yabber about me.

HI!

Heya, Hart.
Welcome to the furtopia.org forums. '<img'>
 
A trekkie, eh? I've had a passing interest in that series. I'm not so sure that the turtle-forehead-biker-dudes should rule the planet though. '<img'>
 
Enjoy the board. '<img'>

Hope you kill him before you do so. Never really been fond of Gagh. o_O

I'm a bit of a Trekkie my self. Though I've been turned off towards it due to the new Star Trek (Enterprise). It is just butchering the timeline, it is so horrible.

Though I'm greatly into it for the technology. *gestures towards an U.S.S. Enterprise N.C.C. 1701-D tech manual*

I used to buy the Star Trek Magazines, but since Enterprise came out, I've greatly lost interest in it all. -_-

I wanted to grab a Klingon Dictionary, but my dad pointed it out AFTER I got the Star Fleet hand book (originating from around the 23rd century version)

*shrugs* Aw well.

Well, Welcome to the boards Hart. I'm the local Lupequine (horse and wolf combined). A bit of a Sci-Fi fanatic. I tend to desgin ships and technologies, which includes weapons. Though I also serve as Basic HTML desgin advise. ^_^

Again, Welcome aboard. I think you'll find the place very nice. I know I have.

(giggles) Well, we try to be! I don't think anyone here has eaten anyone as yet. Which is a good thing. So, I think you are safe.

(wraps wings around newcomer)  Enjoy your stay!

There is a variety of resons to use the dragonfly, much of them very personal. One of them is that it is representing a bit of a graphic and verbal ( My user name ) twist on what name I'm  more widely known ( online ).

It is a way of dividing my professional "face" from my hobbies. '<img'>

On a deeper note, the dragonfly is a totem of mine ( from what I understand ).

One a fun note, I think they are awesome cridders and am developing a charcter based on one. '<img'> Many of my faerie draogns have dragonfly wings. '<img'> I've been a perch of them before, and held one on my finger tip while its wings dried. '<img'>

My fursona..., is a hybrid cridder. A cross between dragon and wolf. Yeah yeah yeah, I know that its not all that unique, and I also know that there are others with simialr character and characterizations of such a beastie. But it does hold a special part to me, as there is a bit of equine added in there. '<img'> There is also a touch of ungulate too ( me being an Aries and all, had to add that in there '<img'> ).

So the primary figure of my main characterization of me, is a wolf-ish dragon-like creature, with either feathered or membrane-based wings, digigrade bi-pedal anthromorph, with backward recurved horns ( similar to ram's horns but a bit lighter and thinner being that I'm female ).

'<img'>

Oh yeah and big feet. A heavy frame needs big feet. '<img'>

Oh and camo pants, must have them US Army fatigues. Why? They hold my pencils so nicly. '<img'> Lots of pockets!

(giggles) Got to have TONS of room for pockets without having to carry a purse etc.!

I like dragonflies too. I like watching them flitter about and there is such a variety of coloration to them as well! We saw some black ones last year when WS, Crystal and I went for a walk along the bike trail near a creek. They were so awesome! I wanted to get pictures but don't think I managed it. '<img'>

 '<img'>  I guess I have to say you are the ONLY one I have met that is a dragon/wolf fursona! I don't know how common that is then. (giggles)

Well, I used to be a Dragon Wolf My self. ^_^ It was when I was running around with the name Jad Talos. (jad because those are the first letters of my three names, and talos, well it sounds like a flying creature's name)

Sumthing a bit like this.

Desgining a shirt while having wings is terribly hard work o_O

Sounds like, and looks like an interesting mix. Nice pics.

Very intresting. I notice that most of the hybrid dragon-wolves I have seen/met tend to have simialar physical features. The only different one I've seen is one user by the name of Cypherwulf. Hers is remarkable. Very "cridder" like rather then "furry". '<img'>

I've taken a more beast-side to my fursona. Ya don't need much in clothing the more animla you look. '<img'> Unless of course there are some serious fanatical Prudes present. '<img'> *chuckles*

Most times, cause I be female, I toss a sports bra or some simalr boob-bracing top on and camo pants. ^.^ Sports bras can be designed to let the wings have room to move. Yeah for being female! ^.^ *chuckles*

^.^ Thanks much. '<img'>

I like to try and hybrid htings sometimes, just to see what I can come up with. '<img'> You should see the orca-tiger-dragon I did for Tigerskitten. '<img'> its kinda surreal.

Nice pics too Heart!  Donít worry that your not unique enough.  If not WHAT you are but WHO you are that counts.  I have known some really good furís to become personally quality friends of all different types.  Now I have met some like on FM after talking there response is, ďOh I canít STAND dogs.Ē  Thatís fine.  But in my experience the good furs I most remember are the ones who are not afraid to share a little of themselves (friendship, ideas, thoughts, laughs, etc).
