 :D LOL! 

Right now, I'm only in the very early stages of trying to get another suit. I have the design done, but the suit won't be built/finished, etc. for at least 5-7 years.........if it even happens.  :o
Gonna take a long while to save up $4,000 or more to get the suit commissioned. Anything can happen between now and AC2026 to derail my plans.

Let me narrow down your list a bit:
Hybrid - No
Dutch Angel Dragon - No
Robotic - No
Skunk - No
Kirian - What the heck is that?

It's been said that rats can gain access to your home by climbing up threw your toilet. I prefer to use the front door.

I could go as a giant refrigerator mascot. Design it so that there's a door with a compartment inside with Dew in it, and hand out bottles of Dew.  :D

Sorry...
Kirin or Qilin
Its a mythological creature.
Scaly body of a dragon, tail of a lion and cloven hoofs like a deer. Its body enveloped in sacred flames.

I like the refrigerator, just add ears and tail please.

I have thought about a gryphon or a phoenix in the past. But I dropped those designs as the cost would be too high.

I'll give you guys a clue: The eyes will be yellow or golden colored. They may be the 3D follow me type eyes. That style seems to afford a lot of vision to look through them which is what I'd probably need since I have real life eyesight problems.

There really isn't much more I can say about my next "possible" suit as I prefer to keep it under wraps.  8)

1. It won't be a husky. But I may design a husky suit as a "backup" in case my current design doesn't work for whatever reason.
2. As I said previously, yellow or golden colored eyes.
3. 3D Follow Me type eyes.
4. Probably a toony type suit. Can't afford a realistic suit as those are $6,000+
5. Suit will be plantigrade.
6. White will be at least one primary color.
7. Design is pretty much finalized, but I'm having trouble deciding between 6 different coloration patterns.
8. Haven't selected an artist yet to do a character sheet. Might wait on this till I actually have the money saved to commission the suit.
9. Name for the character is already decided on.
10. Not much, if any, padding in the suit. If there is, it might be in the arms or the main body.
11. I am concerned with tail weight with the fursuit design I've selected. Need to keep the tail short and lightweight.
12. No pawpads on feet.
13. There will be at least 4 colors for the suit. One color will be at least 50%. Another color will be about 30%. Third and fourth colors will be about 10% each.

There's really nothing more I can say. Barring financial or health issues, I'd like to try for getting another suit. Gonna be a few years wait though.

Species/suits I've thought about in the past of getting, but have declined (or have I?) are the following:
Realistic Alaskan Malamute
Toony style Alaskan Malamute
Realistic wolf
Phoenix
Gryphon
Birds (Not sure specifically what type though.)
Lion

Yellow eyes? He had yellow eyes! Kobuk's new fursona is Scut Farcus from 'A Christmas Story'.

Been pondering what a version 2.0 Kobuk fursuit might be like. Might design one or might not. We'll see. I've been saying for the past several years I might have a Kobuk 2.0 suit made, but nothing has ever come of it.  :P Me and my "indecisiveness".  :-[
It's tough because there's already too many husky/dog fursuits that already have dark/light green fur patterns. How the hell am I supposed to make mine different from all the others? I do have 1 or 2 small ideas. But I'm no artist.

Not likely. But there will be red in the design. You can be sure of that. ;) Just not that much.

Ok, folks. Hit me up with some furry artists who do fursuit character reference sheets. If you know of some great artists for under $100, then list their websites. I'm looking for sheet styles similar to this:
https://i.redd.it/buafuk1xaj721.jpg
https://d.facdn.net/art/aggrobadger/1383867743/1383867743.aggrobadger_29-0111-avalondragon.png

Doesn't mean my (Hopefully) next suit is a wolf, bird, etc., just means I like the way those sheets are laid out and the poses on them. The more poses, head shots, etc., the better I like the sheet.

Guess again.  :D I thought about a snake or other lizard long, long ago, but gave up on it. It's true that you don't see many snake or lizard fursuiters in the fandom. They're a bit rare. Dragons you see a fair amount of. But anything else is a rarity.
