Been thinking about this for a long time
If I changed Niko's character design would it really matter to you guys? Niko not Thorn. I've been wanting to change her around for awhile now, and I'm not sure if you've noticed but there have been subtle changes here and there since I first started posting her on the net, but when I originally created her it was when I was 12 and obsessed with huskies, and I'm not anymore and I really don't think one, even a mixed breed with one, should be used to represent me. I'm thinking about doing a total overhaul.

What do you guys think?

For that matter if you've seen me either in person or through pictures, do I remind you of anything in particular dog wise? I'd like to keep to dog, since well...I'm pretty doggish and I hate cats and I don't feel the need to be OMGSOUNIQUE...plus I'm not as brave as shoomlah to go the way of the tapir XD (I still think that was pretty neat)

Keep in mind though, this is not like a "wereside" revamping or anything. This is not my soul, I do not think I'm an animal, its just a redesign like when Bugs Bunny went from being short legged, deep voiced and yellow gloved to the long legged white gloved smart aleck we know today.

It's your character, do what you want. :) I'm constantly making small adjustments to Ayshia's and Kilo's design as I get older. People change, so I don't see why personal characters can't too. :P

Yeah that's how I figure it. Originally she was just a husky, then a wolf dog, then a tribreed wolfdog (husky, shepherd and wolf) now I'm thinking of just making her completely doggish cuz yanno, I'm really doggish :P There's nothing "noble" about me XD

Plus I have Thorn as the wolf part of me and Sarge as the uh....cheesey part of me >_>

I say go for it! It really shouldn't matter to anyone what you do with your creations. :)

I look forward to seeing what you come up with.

Australian Shepherd, maybe? It seems to fit, in my mind.

Actually I was planning on incorperating that somehow, at least a bit of the mutt mix. They're short *like me* and have big poofy butts XD *like...me? o_O I dunno*

I could totally see you as an australian shepherd, or a mix thereof. But probably -with- a tail. I can't really see you as a tailless dog. 0_o
thornwolf From: thornwolf Date: March 10th, 2006 11:30 pm (UTC) (Link)
Thats what I was thinking too. Tailless dogs appear to have big butts, and I don't think my butt is that big XD

My dog is tail-less, so she makes up for it.

I agree with the spaniel posts (your HAIR)- Russian spaniels seem like a good bet, being a bit more streamlined than the cockers & cavalier king charles:



...Though Brittany Spaniels are gorgeous too, and have adorably floofy ears. Check out the photos on corbis.com, they're all pretty damn good references.

And, sincerely, though I adore tapirs, I'm so completely aware that everyone who's met me hardly thinks I align with them in way of personality or appearance- I've been trying to think up a new species, so I might be making a post of my own on the subject. :)

A Portuguese Water Dog.
Or a Capivara.

do what you like with Niko, it is your character :P

Personally I'd probably pick some kinda mixed breed for you. You don't take yourself seriously, which is kinda what I'd associate with a purebred.
To be honest I always assumed Niko was a husky mix. No idea why really, just did.

She was, if you read my response to Kilojara (scroll up) you'll see what she was. When she started out she was just a plain old husky.

I see a blue merl (spelling?) Australian Shepard. :3
yaochi From: yaochi Date: March 11th, 2006 01:59 am (UTC) (Link)
Well something from Australia, but not a Shepherd, a Dingo, crossed with a Chihuahua. Dunno how you would do that ....

A little wild and, as Dingos are, somewhat generic as are Yellow Dogs.
But compact

A Dire Chihuahua

I have no problem with it. In fact, I can't wait to see what you come up with. ^^ I can't think of a breed to represent you, but something fluffy would work. Fluffy and sassy... There ya go. XD

Boder collie!

Heh, ok so that was actually just the first dog breed that came to mind. Spaniels are nice too.
