Taz Feral Reference 2012. by Serphire Taz Feral Reference 2012. by Serphire
Video: [link]
--------------------------------------------------------------

FINALLY. I have FINALLY gotton around to making a proper feral reference for my fursona. God damn.
Anywho, this is Taz, my fursona. I call her Taz most often, because referring to her as Tahlia just sounds wierd. Since that's my name. And my sonas actual name :I
Plus, Taz is another nickname for me, it's short and simple, it fits :I

I will be uploading a character development meme for her, since her old reference was terrible lol. She's had a bit of a change, not much though. Majority of her markings are still similar, if not the same. He colours needed a serious revamp though. That whole greyscale thing just wasn't gonna work :I

ALl the info should be in there, some of the writing is probably hard to read, but try the full view, or even download the image to see all of the writing properly, if you have any questions, feel free to ask!

All of her accessories are optional btw, you don't have to draw them :3 But majority of those accessories I actually own in real life. I have the bandana, the SoA dog tag (which I'm getting for my birthday, which is in 3 days, on the 26th woo!) , the heart necklace, with the quote I own, which I'm wearing now. The zebra print, leopard print, and Jason Voorhees earrings I own, the red one with the star, and the orange one I don't :I However the silver hoops on the orange one I do own.

My apologies if the dark, textured background is distracting, I wasn't sure if it was or not :I If it is, please let me know, I don't want this to be too hard to read, or see details or anything D:

But I hope you like this! Oh, I also changed her breed a little. She's mostly the build of the cattle dog, but I guess still some dingo in there. She's not even realistic to both, design wise anyway so idk :I

ALSO. For those of you who are confused, Taz is my actual fursona, that is, the representation of myself. Serphire (the brown ridgeback) is my mascot- I guess he's my main iconic character :D

Thank you! I still have a soft spot for her design too <3 I might draw her every so often ;P I haven't gotten rid of her, she's still a character, so anyone is welcome to draw her if they like! She's not dead, don't worry!

I would *Love* it if you could make this lineart for us :D The character is insanely unique, and I love the way its built. (:

I don't mind making free lineart for you guys to use, but I won't make any lines that look like this character. I've had her stolen on many occasions, and I can't risk her design being copied by anyone else :(

Ohh I see, that sucks that someone would do that. I just like the way the body is shaped, especially the head and how the mohawk hangs and would love to splat some colours on it. I would love to see lineart from you either way though (:

Yeah, a lot of people seem to love this character XD I actually still love her myself, her stocky build is my favourite part, maybe I'll make some lineart similar to this build for everyone to use :)

Since this version of Taz isn't your fursona anymore... Are we still 'allowed' to make fan art for this version of her?

Sorry for bothering you >n<''

Yes, of course you can! This verison of Taz is more of a character now, even though I don't draw much of her anymore; but I still love her design myself, so any fanart of her is more than welcome! <3

I'm pretty sure a stumpy tail cattle dog is called a smith field

Although, you are right, you can get Smithfields that look like the Aussie cattle dog, my mistake, however, I just went with the Stumpy tail breed name for lack of confusion of the two types ;D

Oh lol then sorry for the spam of the comment I just sent xP well thanks for looking into it I was confused myself about the breeds but since I knew one in real life I took the chance xP

Smithfields are usually a bit of a collie type, they have longer shaggy fur. They do have bobtails, yes, but this one is an Australian Stumpy Tail Cattle dog, which is the actual name of the breed. They're pretty much just Aussie cattle dogs with stump tails :P

Well I owned a cattle dog and my mums friend owns a smithfeild, they relatively look alike expect for the shorter muzzle but ok, I haven't looked that far into the breed/
