Hi guys!  Just so you know, I'm working on bringing myself back to the devaintART community.  I want to start taking drawing more seriously... The only question is, can I?
Free Hugs by TheHoneyDragon

He asked for a hug.

He just wanted one.

There's no need to fuss.

It's just for the fun!

Just come a bit closer.

Now you're almost there.

Now you just need to stand still...

That is, if you dare!

Hey everyone.  It's TheHoneyDragon here.  Below is a list of questions that the community and I have made for myself, and here you can see the answers to them!  This is so I can understand who I really am and what I really want out of my fursona.  If you want to help contribute, check out the description below.  Also, anyone is permitted to answer these questions for themselves!

-001- What is your favorite motto and philosophy? -crazeguy

     My favorite motto is "More pain now, less pain later."  Made it up myself, and I find it true for just about anything, as long as it doesn't break you.  As for my favorite philosophy... Well, I guess ye olde knight code pulls my interest the most, as I have a thing for chivalry and bringing honor to my family, amongst other things.  The funny thing is, I don't actually know the code.  I just know that some of my values align with a stereotypical honorable knight from medieval times.

-002- What makes you go into the state of meditation (what prompts you into thinking about yourself and your life)? -crazeguy

    For the purpose of this question, I'm going to assume you are talking about self reflection and not simply letting my mind wander.  Listening to music I find hauntingly beautiful usually sets me off.  Also, music that incorporates clock or metronome-like sounds will do the same thing.  In nature, the sound of the shore will usually put my mind in a meditative state, although there isn't a lot of self-reflection there, just me taking my surroundings in and letting my imagination flow.

-003- What do you like to do when you feel pressured/emotionally unstable? -crazeguy

    When my brain is under the pressure cooker, I like to talk to converse with myself.  A lot.  If the cause of the stress is over or not present, I tend to try to figure out with myself how to solve the issue or cope with what just happened.  My body tends to shake.  I loose a good amount of my coordination and my ability to think properly, forgetting details I should know from much experience or forgetting to do things entirely.  To try to calm myself, I like to remind myself it's not worth getting upset, and try to do things well after to show that I really can do whatever it is I need to do and that I'm not some sort of total moron.

-004- What is your favorite activity when you want quiet and peace and when you feel energetic? -crazeguy

    -My favorite activity when I want quiet and peace and quiet is to sleep, listen to soft music or ambience or simply IM with someone in Skype.
    -My favorite activity when I'm feeling energetic is to... well, sprint! Energy tends to rise with the right music tuning into my ears. Then I can't help but want to just... well, go faster!

-005- What do you do most out of habit? -crazeguy

    Play music in my head.  It's all the time, and it coordinates a lot with my mood.  This tends to go away when I'm focused on something however.

-006- What do you think is evil or bad, and what is the opposite of it? -crazeguy

    Bullying and harassment is evil, It hurts the other person and over time makes them bitter.  I'm still emotionally scarred from experiencing that.  Bravery and Empathy I would say is the opposite of this.

-007- What is the first four colors you like most(list them starting from the best)? -crazeguy

  1. Black
  2. White
  3. Green
  4. Yellow

-008- Do you prefer close combat or long range? -crazeguy

    Close combat.  It is a lot more of an adrenaline rush.

-009- What is the first weapon you think of? -crazeguy

    A pair of short swords, one black and one white, for dual wielding.

-010- What do you prefer to take with you when traveling? -crazeguy

    I prefer to take everything I need to survive, and supplement it with as many practical tools as I want.

-011- What type of clothing do you generally like to wear? -crazeguy

    I generally light to wear a semi-light set of clothing.  My favorite combination is a pair of long, loose fitting jeans and a t-shirt.  I like to wear a belt to hold those jeans together.  For footwear, I'm used to wearing sneakers or running shoes.

-012- Do you wear the same outfit in and out of battle? -crazeguy

    One thing I know from experience:  One does not simply change outfits when you are flung into a battle.  Dress like you're going to be in a fight, don't dress when you're in the middle of it.  In other words, I'm going to be dressed for the intended occasion.

-013- What is your favorite food? -Danielo556

    It's sushi!  Especially the Spider Roll at my local sushi stand.  It has crabmeat in it, and is covered in roe... although there's an actual name for that "roe."  Delicous!

-014- What would you say is your preferred meat/veggie ratio on your dish?  -Danielo556

    Generally I like keeping my meat at around 50%, veggies and grains at 25%, supplemented with at least a glass of dairy during breakfast and dinner.  I like eating fruit as a snack or dessert, although I also go with grains too.  If I do a workout I like to drink protein afterwards.

-015- Do you prefer making safe or risky decisions? -Danielo556

    In general, I prefer to take the safest route.  When I have to make a risky decision, I do what I can to mitigate the risk.  As it turns out, a risky decision isn't risky at all if you prepare for it!

-016- If you had the power to control any one element, what would you choose?  -Danielo556

    (Edit Alert!) I'd choose electricity, because it is quick and often powerful, even if it is short lived.

-017- What kind of [video] games do you like playing, if you do?  -Danielo556

    I like playing Adventure, RPG, a LOT of different Multiplayer Online games (MMOs, MMORPGs, MOBA's, TBS, RTS, FPS... ETC) and especially beautiful indie games.  I also grew up with Nintendo games, so that's a thing too i guess.

-018- Magic, or tech?  -Danielo556

    This is a really hard question for me.  I like both, you see!  However, I'm more used to utilizing magic more than tech.  I have to give tech points for their mechs and nanobots though.  I could see myself using air magic or tech equally in my travels.

-019- What sort of music do you listen to? -Danielo556

    I listen mostly to Soundtracks (Video games, movies, TV shows etc.,) Dance, Alternative, Rock and Dubstep.  I also have a fair share of just about all of the other genres and I tend to try to get my paws- er, hands on popular singles.


Thanks for all your help, keep asking, keep questioning, and hopefully with enough questions I can figure out what kind of persona I'll have!

The Epic List of Many Questions
HoneyDragon here!  Here is a growing list of questions that I'm going to use to help me better understand what I want in a character.

Please, ask me as many questions as you can think of.  This is in a way like a 20 questions thread that goes around, but everyone makes the questions and there will be many, many more of them!


The kind of question subjects I"m looking for:
  • Personality. "What makes you...?"
  • Morales and Values.  "What would you do if..."
  • Preferences "What is your favorite..."
  • Habits "Do you like to ... a lot?"
  • Interests "Do you like ...?"
  • Hobbies "What do you like to do when...?"
  • Desires "So what kind of ... do you want to be?"  "Do you want to become strong, or smart?"
  • Other questions like the above that don't fit that contributes to the topic.

The kind of questions I'm NOT looking for:

  • Suggestions.  "Maybe you should..."
  • Requests.  "Could you draw a bunny for me?"
  • Insults.  "Can you tell me why you're ugly?"
  • Inequality-answer questions.  Questions that, no matter how answered, will make me imply a lack of empathy for gender, religeon, heritage, color, disabilities, etc.
  • Rhetorical Questions.  "Do you really think I would ask a question like that?"
  • Questions not directed at me, but at one of my characters.  Or about someone else.  "So, what's Kevin's favorite color?"
  • Any other type of question that does not contribute to the overall picture or takes focus away from the topic.

You can ask me by:
  1. Posting them here
  2. Sending me a Note/PM
  3. Skype, if you know me there.

I will try to respond to you personally as long as it's an actual question!

[1:21:21 PM] Gilead Goldwing: What I really need to do - something that I haven't really done - Is make a personna based on my personality and values.  In a way, it's what everyone else has done - and that's ok.  Other people have appeal to their characters not because they put lots of random markings on themselves - no, they simply found a way to express more of themselves on the skin instead.  In a way, that was the appeal for me when I wanted to dwelve into the furry world - to have an appealing character that everyone could associate with "Gilead."  I've tried many times to make one that works, but every one I come up with just doesn't have that "pop.." and my most recent one just devolved into a toy, not a person (which explains it's longevity and awesomeness.)

My new goal is to take my quirks, habits and personality and tailor a character that functions in a way that's practical to me, yet has that outward appearance that says "this is what I look like... on the inside."  While I have said recently that I am transitioning over to a fox, the precence of Ink and Blot make me realize that he, too, can quickly become a toy, and at the same time the concept is just an interesting thing to play around with.  With that in mind, and knowing that what I want to be is someone I want to be and someone I am, I will be trying something new - and hopefully better - than what I have tried before - Look at the whole picture, and then conceive everything from my most preferred body part functions and shapes to clothes, acessories and weapons, amongst a lot of other things.

The process isn't going to follow a specific formula this time - instead, I'm going to ask s ginormous amount of questions for myself and I ask you to help me in this endeavor.  I want to have as much of me as possible on the board to work with, and that's where you come in - ask me questions about myself, and I'll add it to a growing list and give you updates from time to time.  Thanks for your help, and I hope to hear a LOT from everyone soon!

Yes, too many questions is a hell of a lot better than none.

Some explanations of this post:
  • I am a closet furry, I just have no suitable character to act upon it.  Never really had one.
  • I have been considering switching to a canine character (fox, dog, wolf or coyote) for some time now.  I just can't decide, which loops back to this post.
  • As far as questions go, questions about myself would be most helpful.  No drawing requests or anything of that nature, please!
  • Ink is an adoptable I bought and named.  Atramentum Draco, Custom Adoptable by AquaMind  Blot is just like Ink, but make of honey.
