Esphie Reference/Concept by Espherio Esphie Reference/Concept by Espherio
This is my current official fursona!

Full Name: Espherio
Gender: Female
Age: 15 Years
Species: Of her own.

Physical Characteristics:
-Her design is either one of the other- her pelt isn't actually divided like that, in case anyone missed the "Summer Coat" and "Winter Coat" headers.
-Her anatomy is very similar to a red panda!
-Plantigrade Feet
-"我不会忘记“ is engraved into her right antler, just above the red ribbon.
-Yes, she does always have antlers. I couldn't fit them into the headshot- sorry about that!
-She is around 3' tall, not including antlers.

Other Notes:
-Usually found in forest/mountainous areas, plains, grasslands, etc.
-Enjoys climbing trees.
-Not a good swimmer, but does enjoy water.
-Thick and long fur.
-More notes to come!

Personality: Natural. Vulnerable. Conflicted. Thoughtful. Peaceful. Serious. Awkward. Not a good follower. Afraid of commitment. Afraid of being lost in the crowd, becoming another cliche. Philosophical, wants to be something more than just a body. Desires companionship, someone to listen. Accepting, open minded. Works at own pace, has erratic ups and downs, tries to be happy. Wants nothing more than to have a voice. Gets flustered around people she respects, but not necessarily of power. Quiet, sentimental, emotional Patient, tries to act brave, like a leader, strong, to cover up for weaknesses. Admits faults, but doesn't like others reminding her of them- bad at taking criticism. Bipolar confidence and motivation. Likes relaxing, thinking, dreaming, imagining.

I know everything is a little jumbled all over the place here- I'll add more of a legitimate description/bio for her later, as well as a bunch of concept sketches for reference, and an anthro reference!

I'm supposed to be on hiatus right now...

I hope you guys like her!

Esphie and art belongs to me. Please don't touch her when she doesn't want to get touched. You'll probably get a painful antler to the face, and I will be very, very sad. In other words, please don't steal! Thank you.

We must be pretty similar then, because naturally, I wrote her bio based on how I feel I am! Thank you so much. :hug:

This is beautiful. I absolutely love this design. The concept is fantastic. It's extremely original. I love the many different aspects and features.
That description is extremely interesting, but I'll talk about the design first.
I absolutely love what you've done with the anatomy. You're very good with anatomy, always seeming to get the details right and ensuring that the different structures of the legs, paws, etc are realistic. It's wonderful. Very impressive. =)
I love the colours. It's not too much, yet not too little. It's basic but very nice. Something interesting about it is that there aren't really bright colours. Not harsh ones anyway, not like absolutely perfect bright white, or even neon colours. It's not extreme at all and I like it.
The antlers make it that bit more interesting. It seems to compliment the basic colours better and set it off just that bit better than if there were none at all.
The markings are superb. They're very interesting, basic again. But not too basic. There's something about it that's extremely majestic and creative. It's not something you see a lot, and it looks extremely pretty. The more basic colours and basic ideas do make it more majestic. It's easier to enjoy the design, and the overall appearance is adorable. 
Those antlers... I can't get over how pretty they are. You've drawn the shapes fantastically. They truly do look like antlers and it's so accurate. It's not easy to draw them, since it's hard to get the shapes right and the size. But you've done a superb job. It's so equal.
The ribbon is an absolute brilliant addition. It adds a little more to it, since it's a bright and more noticable colour. There's not too much of it, just enough. It's nice.
I love the overall concept. Concept of personality as well as design. I read the description. It's extremely interesting reading the personality. There's so much to it and I don't think I've seen someone think so much about a character's personality. Whenever I make a reference for a character, the most I can come up with are a few traits. You've written so many. o_o
They're all original and it's really nice. It's impressive.
You're going to make an anthro version? I'm excited to see that. It's going to be beautiful.
I need to draw this character~

Just kidding, I love how she looks! SIMPLE--I mean...well, compared to your other designs. She's awesome! And wow those antlers are so majestic, I hope you stick with this because for some inexplainable reason this really seems to describe you; a mash of  red panda and those antlers work, I hope you understand what I mean.
