Maybe some of you remember my little fox character/sona Aonik. Back in 2006, when I created it, my thoughts were “I want a character I could identify myself with. It would be a bird… ahh.. but I don’t know how to draw birds, and gestures seem difficult too, maybe that’s the reason why everyone else makes a dog/cat sona, they are easier to draw… Hmm, I like foxes, I like Japanese mythology and I can draw foxes, so a kitsune will do! And it will have little bird wings!”. And that’s was it.
I recalled those thoughts and decided to make a “what if I knew how to draw birds back then” version, mixing the kitsune thing with a bird and this was the result. I’ve been using this design to draw silly Tourabu doodles lately, heh.
