For example, characters based on toys, or fursuits, or really any personal object.

I'll start, this is Ivy!

She is a furby based on a real one I own!

This is not a recent image, she now has one brown eye IRL.

Mercenary_Ike

A character of mine that I haven't uploaded yet, Spooks (Or Terren is his other nickname), is based off of a cat toy I got at a fair once. 

Lunation zinnia

lunation (and her assistant matryoshka) are both irl things i got at a convention in like ... 2014 or 2015? lunation is a plush and matryoshka was a kil 3d printed figure ! matryoshka actually sits on my laptop but i’m on the bus rn so i can’t add a pic D:

Fio Waltz

I would have to try and figure out where a photo is because she's packed away in storage, but Fio here was originally based on a plush cow I've had forever, named (drum roll please) Cow!

Soni sonikkuruzu

Soni's design is kinda based on a toy bunny I own. I don't have any pictures of it.

FellowPigeon

They are still in the works but I have a character based off a badly translated sheriff badge I have.

Nev sonikkuruzu

I'm not sure whether this counts but it's like FellowPigeon's example ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I came up with the idea for Nev (seal who's a security guard) because the spray paint I'd got for college had a security seal on it and my brain immediately thought security guard seal.

Hoshi Kagayaku NihilisticTiger

I based this boy off a phone case I had in 9th grade. I created him so I could have a cute matchy-matchy chibi boi to tuck into the case, but I turned out liking him for more than just his aesthetic. He actually got me back into making OCs and world-building whoops

(edit) god that image looks bad on the teal site theme ewwww but y'all get the idea

Amie FoofyFaun

Amie is based on a porcelain doll I own! 

Rook ChingX

Rook is based on my webkinz raccoon that I got sometime in 2007-2008!

Feedback ghostfiish

Based on a keychain I bought at the State Fair!

Lechuguino Raviolios

This is Lechuguino!! Its based on a... strange round cushion I have and love ;v;

So I made it a guardian of dreams sort of...

 ✭Maka✭ GeckoSauce

My character Maka isn't exactly a 'character' but rather my bird that's has a character version •.•

Thornheartless

Entler here was inspired by my plague doctor mask!

I have a wizard-y guy named Nameless who's design was based on a purple wizard hat I have, my long coat and a pair of boots
