I have had animal avatars as my go-to practically since I joined. Originally joined because of cartoon ponies, and the branched out once I realized there were more options. Also because the human and humanoid avatars all seem to be focused on who can out-sexy the other in ridiculous ways XD
I tend to prefer dragons over anything else, simply because they come in all shapes and sizes. Though horses and natural wildlife were a short-lived passion, due to far too many asking if they could "keep me as a pet, I looked so cute", I stopped. I do get that occasionally with my dragon avi, but far less often than "oh no! Please don't eat me!"
Anyway here's my current favorite, Whale-Eater, using the I Monster European Dragon! Picture is a bit outdated, since i didn't find proper horns when i took it a few months ago.
Second fave is DraGUN, or just Gun for short, using the Wyvern body of the Euro. Mechanical dragon with a heart of actual flesh, maybe. Could go the route of "I have no mouth and I must scream", or 'dragon-shaped WOMD, flesh not included"
Here are some older pictures of my dragon oc Lokiande, which oddly enough came after i made my SL account. Avatar is the Dawn Kingdoms Dragon, and yeah back then my screen was busted.
this is the only reason I grabbed the Nutbusterz Chibi noodle, so i could use the Rabbit mod!
No idea what this was, but I put it together from a bunch of spare parts and thought it was cute
Made a goat out of... something.
here's a Bat..person? I think this was from Bentbox?
Mesh seal avatar from grendel's children, featuring once again, my old cracked monitor XD
Here's my attempt at turning another Grendel's Children avatar, the Avarian Big Cat, into some kind of dragon
This little monstrosity was from when I was hooked on the worst fandom: Gor. And because I found the animals far more interesting than the people, kaiila especially, i tried my hand at turning another Grendel's Children avatar [avarian deer] into something it was not meant to be. Big Cat paws and fangs, retextured MLP flexi mane and tail, avarian owl eyes. Still stupidly proud of this mod lol
Another mod I'm proud of, making a feral rabbit out of the freebie Grendel's Dragonlet and the Kani bunny
