Ladies and Gentleman, I have reached a decision after about 2 years of debating back and forth. I decided to switch my person from Mutteo the dog to Aodhan the duck.
I realized this may be offsetting to you guys, but nothing will really changed. Granted I will be drawing Aodhan a lot more as an outlet for my ideas, but I'm still me. I'm still the shoe obsessed, toon paw fanatic, goof that you've come to know. I just decided to use Aodhan as an extension of myself instead.
Mutteo had a nice run and he's been great for me for the past 6 years, but as I'm growing up and finding things about myself, I have to put the mutt behind me and grow my ideas with Aodhan.
I'm still Mutteo Cleafurry, that's my penname that I use when I create art, and it's still my nickname people use for me. All my other characters, including Mutteo, are still a part of who I am and I still will enjoy drawing them and any other characters I feel the need to make. Like I said, nothing will change about me or my art, just changing fursonas.
Why Aodhan? Well he's been the only character that I really dove my time into doing since I created him about 3 years back, and I naturally wanted to put him in any idea I saw fit. He dove into fantasy, video games,anime, sports, romance, drama, and now he is a part of my future aspirations and dreams. He just feels natural for me to explore.
I know it's a weird thing for you guys to see me as anything but Mutteo, but I do hope you respect my decision for changing it. For all I know, it could just be a phase I'm going through and I might change back, but I am stepping forward with my life and my ideas, so I doubt I'll be turning back. I want a character I feel can extend the limitless bounds of my imagination. Aodhan is the one I want to do it with, and that's my final decision.
So if you don't like it, quack off~ X]
