have you ever though about why you made yourself the color you did?? is there a symbolic reason behind your fursona's hair,eye,or fur color? or anything else for that matter?

My eyes: They are a greyish blue...the color of my real eyes, this represents my calm inner spirit and sad past...and a bit of my cold nature.

my hair: Electric purple and messy, other than the fact that its a pretty color and my real hair was this color once, it represents my crazy nature and carefree style. Its spiky messy showing my sharp edges, but soft to the touch showing my hidden loving personality.

my pelt: grey black and white, well i am a grey fox after all, and my reasoning for that species has already been said many times (read my profile for a refresher) but as for aesthetics, my foggy color scheme is my hidden mysterious spirit...and how im full of deep dark secrets that i have to mask. over the years.

my spots: they are all marks on my actual body, the large circular one on my hip is real...its the size of a quarter and black and is perfectly centered and circular...odd huh? and the ones on my shoulder blades are perfectly spaced and appear like snake eye dice.

Well, I made my fur the I did because:

My Fur: Black and White.

Because, I love both of the colours, White means the goodness inside of me,
And black was the rougher side of me.

My Eyes: Gold

Again because it's my favourite colours, And to show the fire in my eyes when I am fixated on completing something.

Soon to be a Fur Tattoo: An altered Ying yang sign. (Gold and White, With a black heart and star, To replace the dots.)

Because it show that there is always a different side to anyone.

Hmm, not so much in my case. I always figured that leopards were pretty much one set of colors, so I went with what occurs naturally.

Are you trying to set I should start wearing pink or something? Party

I was going for a nature look as well, But it didn't seem like it was me as a Furry, It didn't seem memorible, That's why Bibby and I chose to add my Fur Tattoo.

They're not spots, they're rosettes. Cheetahs have spots, leopards have rosettes.

It is also a little known fact that cheetah spots are really leopard rosettes that failed Quality Control. Dance

I see that the topic train has derailed. Let me try to get it back on track.

I'm not sure if my furry's colors (white and purple for fur and blue eyes) mean anything. I just like purple and white as a color combination. I wanted something different than the usual red fox fur scheme.

Bloody hate that, *Alowl looks slightly angry.* I can't tell the different between them, You probably don't like me altering my Fursona's hair to look a bit like your's.

Am I right?

Eyes brown as my own, fur is black andwhite, the pattern is much like that of a fox. The reason for the colours is abit of a mystery for myself. I've had the same colours since I first design my fursona over a decade ago. Though he has aged and with that I've added bits of grey to him as well as some battle scars. These are purplish in colour, a darker seemy un-natural colour, thier locations are more easier explained then thier colour.

But in the end it just seems right in the selection, maybe after some reflection I might find the answer again.

My light blue color I kept because I used to be a full fleshed Lucario and changed to a husky and just kept the basic color scheme of blue and white :3

That is correct, but it had the calming effect I wanted to show and it was the closest to him.

I painted a model in his colours recently but keep putting off taking the picture. Though i just returned from a costume shop with some hair colour so my RL picture (after anthrocon) will even look like him (minus the face scar).

well, my fursona (both 'sides' of it) is rather naturally colored. However, various other aspects of my 'sona are symbolic. My fox side wears a kimono (I imagine it similarly to the outfit the shinigami wear in Bleach, if anyone here's familiar with that anime/manga) - symbolic of my fascination with japanese culture. and on both sides, the left ear is floppy, symbolizing the fact that I'm deaf in my left ear. both my fox side and my wolf side wear a nodachi sword across the back, symbolizing my love of edged weapons.
