the zobobafoo by zobobafoozie the zobobafoo by zobobafoozie
okay this is going to be a little funny to explain, but i'll try my best!

these past couple of months have been troubling for me. i'm starting to get confused on who i really am as a person and as an artist. i have decided to start taking steps into a new direction and hopefully i will be able to come to some comforting conclusion.

no matter how i would draw zobo as an anthro, she never looked good, nor did she ever seem enjoyable to draw. i feel so connected to her because i've had her for a huge part of my life, yet i don't consider myself to really /be her/. if that makes any sense at all. something about drawing zobo as more of a chibi form has always made me happy. she feels so alive and sometimes feels like she jumps out of the page. she feels more like me, but again, she isn't me. and i'm okay with that. i feel more at peace as her being a character rather than a "fursona". she expresses enough about myself and my work without actually being a form of me. as i'm typing this i'm wondering if i'm just sounding silly, but it feels good to type it anyways.

TL;DR
zoe/zobo is now going to be in this more chibi form rather than anthro/feral and i'm now calling her more of a character rather than a fursona because of personal decisions

i hope you guys kind of understand what i mean!! i'm hoping this a step in the right direction of helping me find myself as i'm maturing in a new way

THAT'S EXACTLY HOW I FEEL
Like, I have these characters I draw when I'm sad, I don't want them to represent me I just use then to get out feelings
& your style is still always so cute!!

ugh i've been in the same place before too and it's SO HARD to actually make that decision SO I'M PROUD OF YOU <3
tbh tho i think it's impossible to keep the same fursona forever because who actually stays exactly the same throughout their whole life?
love your chibi drawings of lil zobo tho <3 i always wanna snuggle her

ahhh thank you so so so much dear and i'm so glad you understand <333
that's pretty much how i was feeling, i can't always stay only wanting to be expressed in this form anymore. in some how of a weird way, not having a fursona anymore makes me feel even more of an interesting connection towards her ;u; LIKE SHE'S MY BUDDY HEE
and thank you again yeeee <3333
