I'd say go ahead and post the picture, she sounds reasonably clothed.


I don't blame people for being misinformed. First you have the news, then you have too many furries try to defend the fandom by saying the 'adult' side is a minor part of it, but, it's not really that small. They aren't morons, just misinformed.

It's not a lifestyle (to me) and more of a hobby. Saying "I'm a furry" sounds like it's more of a lifestyle thing (like "I'm a Christian" or "I'm a straight" or "I'm a dentist"). Then you have hobbies ("I like to draw" or "I like to play Halo"), and I'd like to voice it as a hobby, but "I participate in the furry fandom" is just such an unattractive way to word it.

yeah i saw that, they even said most furries dislike the [REDACTED] part of the fandom.
I know I took up drawing anthro because all the good cartoons in the '90s had anthro characters. It was just natural to me.
Every fandom is going to have perverts, though. At least there is a very active and vocal majority that are NOT interested in that stuff and do their best to make it clear that there's more to it than that.

Well, she is clothed, (Long sleeved v-necked shirt and Jeans). The one thing that makes me hesitate is the fact that I made her REALLY busty. Posted Image
I doubt that would really be a problem in that case. Go for it.

On the topic of furries on television :

Worst seems to be when the news mention the fandom, they always need to make it sound so melodramatic.
Its as though some are just trying to make the already bad stereotype even worse by making more people believe it is true.

I actually remember seeing a segment somewhere in the news that, surprisingly, had NOTHING bad said about the fandom.
I wish I could remember where I found it though :/
I don't think I have ever seen anything about furries in the actual news. I don't really watch national news, and I guess there just aren't many furries locally (or the ones there are keep it low-key). I went to high school with a couple, though.
Everything on the news is so dramatic, though. Gotta keep the viewers watching to rake in the ratings!

But i have to say it... i am not the going to judge people no matter what, for i am not a saint myself.

Well alright, here it is.

Spoiler:

I also tried something new in this drawing, I'll see if you guys can notice it.
I don't like what I did with the eyes though, I also need to work on drawing hands.

Well, stereotypes are often rooted in facts and experiences (distorted or exaggerated). There is that portion of the fandom, it exists, and people see it. But, people seem to be catching on that there is more to it than putting on an animal costume and hooking up with someone else in an animal costume (or looking at dirty pictures of animals).

I always compare it to other well-established sci-fi and fantasy fandoms, like the Trekkies. Sure there are people that get into it a little too much and are a little too devoted, but for most people it's something for fun and not an actual lifestyle.
(I hope my wording here isn't too awkward.)

It's all about what you say and when. There is a time and place for mature content and explicit discussions. People are going to be a bit more judgemental if someone started talking about stuff like that here instead of on a site like FurAffinity or something. I try to be fairly tolerant, but sometimes I see things (from all sorts of fandoms, and some WAY more than others...) that make me wonder just what the hell is wrong with them.

Everyone here keeps it pretty clean and positive and polite, though. I like that.

Shading? You experimented with shading a bit, didn't you?
Hands tend to give me trouble too...

Hi, Just introducing myself to all the furs on here.  

Also I would like to ask a question and I really dont know where else to put this but I am new to the whole Minecraft thing so feel free to direct me to the correct place.  As I said Im new and still using the default skin.  Is it possible to have a feral style skin.  Ive seen a MLP mod but thats not for me but shows it can be done.

Hands.....The most acursed thing for me to draw, more so than actually getting the pose/shape right... Shading is also somewhat of an issue.

Been using Fallout 3 to help aid my posing sketches, works sort of well, better than random pics of people in weird poses or just standing still.

If you are intrested in a science fiction radio show from the 1940's area, then get this, and just listen to the audio included.(Hard to do ingame anyways)

Havent been in foruming mood either, been too busy in the 1940's and sleeping(feeling horrible).

As for your question yo_sushi1, look up a mod called Noppes More Player Models, and follow the skinning guide, I use it and love it, along with some of my furry friends.

He might be adding a part where you can make your own models/add them, which seems awsome.

Yeah sorry about that... forgot that would give you a problem... just know its a zoroark with sapphire blue where he would have red... and his eyes are blue as well.

Mine should not be as hard as my fox 'sona was, a oroark has no hands, his fingers are 3 sharp claws, as well as his toes being the same, so its a LOT better then trying to draw a hand.

Zoroark. I tried.
Spoiler:
Rough sketch is rough, I see a few things I want to improve or modify and I took a couple stylistic liberties.
This is actually the first time I have drawn a Pokemon in nearly 12 years (last one was an Espeon and a Jolteon back in 2000ish).

Yep, two more posts and you will have full, unrestricted posting privileges!
More Player Models is a good mod, I would like to see some quadruped models added (wolves and stuff). MineLP CAN work for that purpose, and I do use that mod (it's very well made), but I think it's time to go back to MPM and make a skin of my current 'sona for it.
