do you have a Fetish?(its okay if you do)
yeah..I have a fart fascination. although I'm rather casual and tend to be subtle about the subject matter than most people. and basically, I find it funny and the concepts of flatulence being used as a,biological martial art, unconventional weapon and power had me interested when I played games like Oddworld and Tekken 3 and watch cartoons and animes that get away with this sort of thing. another example I was interested in mainly because of skunks and the thing they always do with their gas/musk in cartoons and video games.i think skunks are a crowning glory for this type of humorous power. but overall, I like to think everyone has a tame fetish and likes to express them in their artwork and literature, but that does not make them bad people.
what was your first favorite anthro skunk character on DA?
Taffy the blue skunk, to those of you who didn't know Taffy was a skunk girl who uses's her gas as for both defense and humor she was created by an artist by name of 4kt, she was going to be part of a webcomic series he was working on. she was a very popular character since 2009 until 2011 he deleted all the taffy art because he did not like all the attention she gets out of all his characters and he noticed why. so 4kt wanted to stop drawing her and tell his watchers to stop commissioning or requesting art on the character and he did it in a not so bright way(he wrote a stern journal) so this kind of exploded taffy's Pandora box of crazy fans that never respect his decision, never left him alone about it to the extent that he can't not even draw the character or mention her name anymore. (he has an another account but I'm not telling you if gonna flame him on it, okay?)

it started out as a "cats vs dog" concept between 2012-2013, alas when I watch cartoons and movies new inspiration come to me every day developing my project even more. its meant to be a "military adventure and spy capers meets the cartoony madcap slapstick and crude humor world of anthros"
what inspired your characters?
my inspiration for my characters usually come from both my imagination and various sources from cartoons, videogames,movies,famous artists, DA artists, etc but the inspiration for Fido (my fursona) came from the fact i think i look like a Jack Russel terrier everything in my real life apply's to my character
