I keep joining the discord only to leave because I don't have anything to post and because loading up my discord alt account is a hassle.
Though based on my IRL friends' recent discord jokes, it seems like most of them are also furries. So that's interesting.

Heya apologies on this! When I saw you join it was very awkward timing as we were having a rather dramatic "invasion" by a harasser, and you joined just as we banned his ass for good and assumed the worst of anyone who popped up.

So you're cool to come in now!

(oh and the drama is over lol)

Charizard People were giving you shit for being polite to the roleplayers in that creepy asterisks thread but I think it's commendable. RP'ing isn't for me but I think it's a mostly harmless thing. People have tried to flirt with me like that in the past and I either freeze up and block them or let them know I'm not interested in a much less nice way than you did.

i rp like one week a year to fulfill a primal urge for sex-like acts that barely ever surfaces

but i dont do it well and i bail out quickly

so basically i’m probably the type of person actual roleplayers hate

but thats okay, i dont like any of them either

I really can't give anyone shit for that. I constantly make drunken horny telegram mistakes before deleting everything in shame in the morning.

I tell people I don't drink because I think it's unhealthy, and while that's partially true, the real main reason is I just know drunk me would do some really, really stupid shit.

Haha, since I'm always sober I have the pleasure of informing people of what they did while plastered.

Thanks <3

....Though tbh I do that more because telling these guys "No" often results in them having meltdowns and shit. So i try to be subtle but just ghost them if they don't get the hint. Even ghosting doesn't always work for long though, riiiipppp

Art update!

My characters go to ComicCon.


Couple of videogame-themed pin-ups...

After the first porn game on Steam thread just now I think I'm done with being a furry. Like, the art is cool but uh...

I figured there'd be a problem with zoophiles in this fandom, but other than the fact that a lot of y'all are transparently thirsty for animal dick -- albeit one on an otherwise human body -- that was actually pretty rare.

No, the real issue, one I can no longer ignore, is the blatant and unsettlingly common sexualization of either ambiguously or explicitly child-coded characters. It's the same shit the weebs do. Y'all draw characters that have the body of a young teen but apparently just calling them a "twink" or a "femboy" excuses that? You draw one character that's obviously an adult fucking one that really isn't, and you just call that "size difference"? It's not hard to draw characters that look like adults. This is an intentional thing. I don't think the majority of furry art is like this, but a lot of it is, to the extend that if I unfollowed any artists that had ever drawn anything problematic, I don't think I'd have any artists left. And I think that's what I'm going to do. And when you find the alt accounts and especially the alt alt accounts, even artists you respect start to seem pretty fucking gross. At first I was naive; I thought there were just bad artists that drew problematic things and that was it. But in fact, it's more like most artists eventually stop caring about anything as long as it pays. There are even today furry artists that have drawn blatant child porn and are not only still extremely popular, but have a lot of people defending them. And that's not even talking about the amount of sexual predators in this fandom. When I first started being a furry I was a teenager myself I just ignored all this, but as I've gotten older my standards have gotten higher and I don't want to participate in this fandom any more.

I know I said I didn't post in the discord because I didn't have anything to contribute, but not having anything to contribute has never stopped me from posting before. The real reason is because I can still remember the FurryGAF discord. I joined it once; literally the first thing I see is someone posting shota pics. When people complain that this kind of thing is why they are losing members, they just say "Keep calm and be a shotacon!" so I leave. And when I joined the FurryERA discord, what did I see? That person is not only a member, but one of the admins. So I have no reason to think the FurryERA discord won't be fucking gross too.

So anyway, goodbye.

oh and fwiw, Myke, your art has improved a lot.

I was going to apologize for a few bad apples that have ruined your experience (especially since there are many of us who speak out against the sort of stuff you listed), but from your post it sounds like you already entered the fandom expecting the worst. But to paint most of the artists in the fandom this way is just false. There are plenty of good, friendly people here that are worth your time, if you just bother to look.

won’t disagree with you that there are predators in the fandom much like there are all over the place in all walks of life and that maybe it is more pronounced in a fandom with such a sexual bent. people should be quick to call out those who are abusing children and vulnerable people. they are all too frequent. please don’t accept them in the community and out them if you can


but the rest of it is just you complaining about cartoons you don’t like and generalizing the entire fandom. not interested in that at all. i think it’s pretty sad to put worrying about actual abuse and talking about your art preferences being morally correct next to each other. but that’s just me.

Anyone happen to be attending Anthro Southeast this weekend in Chattanooga? I’ll be there Friday through Monday. It’s my first furry con since Fangcon ‘15, so I’m super excited for it.

Watched this the other night. It was incredibly fucked up, heartrending, and kind of amazingly beautiful so I thought I'd share. Definitely one of the best animated films I've seen in the past few years.

Leaving Chattanooga now. Anthro Southeast was a hell of a lot of fun. The city is really nice, and the hotel was great. There were 605 attendees, which really surprises me since this was its first year.

Definitely coming back next year.
 
Giving this thread a little bump.

Finished reading Omaha weeks ago. Awesome drama-romance comic. Very well written and sex scenes are not gratuitous and have sense. My only complain is the feeling that some secondary story arcs were rushed to be finished while the main one was perfectly closed.




And right now i'm with Beastars. Discovered the Manga when announced that the author was going to be in the Barcelona Manga event, Finished first 2 volumes and volume 3 just arrived to Spain a few weeks ago. I'll get it while I'm in Madrid. For now i really like it: nice characters and excellent drawing.

Klonoa just took my heart.

I'd always known something heart-rending was going to come about through "Door to Phantomile," but I still wasn't prepared.
I understand now. I just...understand

Does anyone know any good resources for learning how to draw furry art digitally?
Thus far I've just tried watching YT videos, but never really stuck with it.

Realized the above compliments might make you feel left out. Great stuff as usual, Myke!
Thank you, even if it's not that much better being told that the only reason why I'm getting feedback from anyone is because you felt that I could get sad, and not because the stuff I do is noteworthy on its own merits.

Here's something new, to at least make this post constructive.

Honestly you shouldn’t feel bad at all. Your artwork is amazing to the level that I would commission you in a heartbeat at a con or otherwise. I’m patient enough to wait for my art and your style is distinctive and good in my opinion.

You have nothing to be worried about IMO, keep working at it and you will only get better for sure.
