[livejournal.com profile] thefoxaroo has kindly commissioned a reference of my fursona from the artist of my choice, who just so happens to be [livejournal.com profile] rhari.
The image is finally finished, and you can find it in my FA gallery.

I’m actually very impressed with the colouring.
Originally I’d decided that his head was supposed to be Red Fox and his body more Pine Marten, but she suggested this colouring that actually turned out extremely well.

Plus, I really, really like his tail! =^.^=

I saw DHLawrence do this meme over on FurAffinity, so I thought I’d do it too, just to stretch my creative muscles a bit.

The last time I posted information about my fursona was about a year ago.
This is far sooner than the first time, which had been four years before that.

I've been thinking about this for a while now, and have finally realized some of the things I've done indicate that he might actually be female.

In this case, it's the "socks" on his arms and legs, as only female foxes have socks on all four paws all the way up to their knees, though they're usually black.
Though it's a "mistake" that many people in the fandom appear to be making as well, so maybe I could get by with doing it anyway?
I'm still on the fence about this.


Name: Carl Foxmarten.
Age: Approximately 25 years of age.
Height: Five feet, four inches.
Tail: Three and a half feet of fluffy goodness.
Build: Quite wiry, never having quite filled out yet.
Headfur: Medium brown, straight, and slightly shaggy, when he's forgotten to get a haircut. Again.
Appearance: Bodyfur is a medium grey, head and "sock" on arms and legs (up to the elbow and halfway to the knee) are all reddish-brown. His tail and ears are definitely fox-like, while the rest of his body is pine marten.

Mother: Pine Marten.
Father: Red Fox.

Skills: Very adept mechanically. Can take just about anything apart and put it back together in working order, even if it wasn't working when it was taken apart. Sometimes has flashes of brilliance that are above average, but sometimes has long stretches where he just doesn't "get" it.

Interests: Primarily behind-the-scenes technical stuff that "normal" people don't care about, let alone know about, including computers (especially the hardware aspect), just about anything mechanical, number puzzles, Bocce and similar games, magnets, and a whole slew of other unusual past-times.

I'll again note that if someone would like to draw him, please let me know, as I'd like to see the picture first before it gets lost in the web.

Oh, and the last thing I need to remember is that Carl Foxmarten is © 2006-2012 his owner and player.

I've been thinking about my fursona a fair bit recently, in part due to the fact that Darc (who does Code Name: Hunter) has started doing commissions.

I remembered the first time I posted info about my fursona here, and that TK had asked how handy he was at using a Sonic Screwdriver.

At the time, I didn't know much about Doctor Who, but since then I've learned a fair bit and have watched quite a number of episodes.

Now I suspect that with the amount of knowledge and skill Carl has acquired, he'd be fairly good at using one.

But that begs the question, does having a Sonic Screwdriver turn one into something like the Doctor?
Is this really such a good idea?

The last time I wrote up any information about my character, Carl Foxmarten, was a little over four years ago.

While little has changed, I want to bring him back to the front of my mind, especially as I've been noticing more free character art on FurAffinity.
Which makes me sad, because they all require a reference drawing, and I don't have one...

Name: Carl Foxmarten.
Age: 25 years of age.
Height: Five feet, four inches.
Tail: Three and a half feet of fluffy goodness.
Build: Rather wiry.
Headfur: Medium brown, straight, and very short.

Mother: Red Fox
Father: Pine Martin

Appearance: His fur is a reddish-brown, a light-gray face, light-gray "socks" on all four paws extending halfway to his elbows and knees. His tail and ears are fox-like, with the rest of his body that of the pine martin.

Skills: Very mechanically-adept and can take almost anything apart and put it back together in near-perfect condition (even if it was broken or misaligned already). Sometimes has flashes of immense brilliance, usually only slightly above average, other times, he just doesn't get it.

Interests: Primarily boring technical stuff (ie, computers, hardware, electronic and mechanical devices, etc), but also has an interest in more unusual and interesting stuff (such as number puzzles, Bocce and similar games, magnets and their many applications, especially the unusual ones, and jig-saw puzzles).

If someone would like to draw him, please let me know, as I'd like to see the picture first before it gets lost in the web.

I realized that I haven't written up any information about the character I play here and on other forums, so I'll try to write it up here.
I may need to edit this entry again later, just so you know.

Carl Foxmarten is half red fox and half pine marten, his mother was the fox and his father was the marten. (Google Image searches for Red fox and Pine marten)
For his age (22) he's a little short and wiry (5'2" last he measured), and can walk very quietly when he wants to, which could also be due to the fact that he's only about 130lbs...

While primarily interested in things related to computer games, including computer graphics and programming, math, and game theory, there are other things he's also interested in, which also include some oddball things like solving sudoku puzzles, crochet (strange, I know), Bocce and similar sports.

He detests the injustices of life and tries hard to make sure that they don't go unbalanced, though he doesn't really have much to do so with.

As for looks, his fur is primarily a reddish-brown with light grey face and "socks" on all paws extending to halfway to the elbows, with the tail and ears of the fox, but the rest of the body is all marten. His "hair" or headfur is straight, medium brown-colour parted on his left and very short.

He is extremely handy with a screwdriver, a wrench and a pair of pliers and can take practically anything apart and put it back together in near-perfect working order, even if it was broken or misaligned already.

I'm not sure why I chose the name Carl, but discovered later that it sounds similar enough to my real name that I'd probably be able to respond to both, while his last name indicates his "species".

I don't have any images of him as I haven't drawn him yet, and as this is the first time I've written up a description of him.
If someone would like to attempt to draw him, go ahead, but I'd like to see it first before it gets lost on the web.

Oh, and Carl Foxmarten and all the artwork he's created copyright 2006-2007 Daryl Van Humbeck.
