Fursona[edit]

TaniDaReal's fursona is a grey "schnolf" (wolf / snow leopard hybrid) with a black dorsal stripe. The schnolf replaced the former grey snowleopard version.

Fursuits[edit]

Tani created and built four fursuits: Two of her character - old lioness form (2002) and new snow leopard (2004), one of her silverfox-wolf hybrid character Savoy (2006), and one of her new character Daiquiri, the Transilvanian Wild Dog, built together with Nightfox.

Savoy[edit]

Savoy is a female silverfox-wolf character created and owned by TaniDaReal. The character was created in 2005.

Since 2006 the character also appears as a fursuit. The old fursuit version made by herself (in 2006) was retired. Since 2012 she wears the new Savoy fursuit, created by OneFurAll.

Daiquiri[edit]

Daiquiri at CFD November'08

Daiquiri is a female Transilvanian Wild Dog (Lycaon pictus transilvanus), also a Vampire. The name derives from the Daiquiri cocktail, because of her sugar-like ear-tips[2].

The Character was created by TaniDaReal in 2007/2008 and built as a fursuit by herself and Nightfox. The fursuit was presented first at Cologne Furdance Edition 2 in November 2008.

Art[edit]

Tani's art is well-commented on art sites such as Fur Affinity or deviantART. She works with both traditional and digital media, but also experimented with sculptures and plushie creations. She likes to draw a mix between toony and realistic art and has a fable for extraordinary fur markings and colors (including hybrid characters).

She also creates and produces furry items / merchandise with her art on it, like t-shirts, calendars or beer coasters.

Some of the projects done by her are:

  • the flippable Mood Badges, started in 2008
  • the WeuUkoo Wolves (her family pack of grey wolves)
  • various printed t-shirts (like the two-sided 'stuck' series)
  • artwork for the Pittsburgh AnthroCon t-shirt, published in 2013
  • several furry website (personal sites, conventions)
