Realy good artists waisted on18+ crap
Yep ^.^ I definitely agree with this one.

Also agreed, that and I don't care for the 18+ adult artwork/furry porn. I feel if we did away with that part of the fandom, people would be more welcoming of furries/more open minded to be one.

Not a fan here either, but i've come to terms with the fact that adult artwork has a place and time (and audience.)  If you don't like it, just ignore it as best you can.

this is basically how i feel. I don't like it, but it's not like i can stop it. I also think if it wasn't there, more people would just laugh with us and take a picture with someone in a suit. I also dont like it much cause i only have one person at my school is also furry, to my knowledge, and when ever i try to talk to her about her or show her art, she almost always make some sexual comment about it and it annoys me to no end...


Yes it seems there is a audience for about anything. As long as there is someone will fill the need.
I never posted really naughty art because I felt there is more than enough online without my help,
and I didn't want the name for it either.

It would be nice if more really good artists took the time to draw clean furry art. It would make
it easier to talk about and show to others.

What's so weird is that, in my observation over the years, it seems like there's a sort of stigma on artists who don't do naughty artwork. Like, they get passed up a lot for commission transactions in favor of artists who do 18+ stuff whether or not the commission in question is 18+.

i also get teased because i am a wolf/ocelot that has natural colors and so people have told me i'm generic and basic because so many people choose wolves :P
Let me guess, said people who have been teasing you are neon-colored 3-plus species hybrids who want to make sure that they will never be mistaken for someone else?  (No offense intended to all you neon-colored 3-plus species hybrids.)

Natural colors are legit, and don't let anyone tell you otherwise! 8)

I think a lot of people like to look at naughty art, but don't wish to admit it.  So such artwork is probably
noticed more than we would think, along with the artist. We should remember that some feel there is
a difference between Erotica and porn. Naughty and nasty so to speak. I imagine most good artists try to
stay with erotica over porn.

It could be artists who draw mostly clean furry art are looked on as drawing art for children, and not
looked on as a serious furry artist.

Unless someone draws mostly as a hobby as I do. Many probably feel they have to draw naughty art to get
noticed, so they can perhaps make a living at something they really love to do.

I would like to see more good clean furry art though, but it's not likely to change.

I can't say that having 18+ things means its bad, or even the 18+ things are bad.
None of it should be judge.

If people dress up as furries and yiff around, that's ok as long as they are safe
If people draw artwork of pornagraphic scenes, that to is ok.
If people incorporate being a furry as part of their lively hood then kodos to them for being so confident in their choices and lifestyle, I couldn't do it.

Regardless of why you became a furry, whether art, philosophy, acting, dance, belief, or just appreciation, no matter what, it shouldn't be seen harshly, any of it.
It's its own world that has splendidly been brought together by countless peoples imagination, beliefs, views, skills, etc.

In the end the fact that this world exists purly by us, I think it's remarkable and beautiful and by being confident and content in such, regardless why, is worth admiring.

Ever since I turned 18 and turned off my SFW filter I gotten pretty use to NSFW stuff. Although I only like tasteful nudity, not straight up porn^^' But every fandom has it, so I'm not so bothered by it.

One thing that really annoys me about the fandom is the whole species and design thing.
If your a wolf, your just bland and boring, pick something more unique.
If your a rarer species your just trying to be a special snowflake.
Your a blue husky, your copying me!
You have too many colors. Your design is generic.
etc,etc,etc
It seems when it comes to fursona species and design, its a damned if you do, damned if you don't type of thing.
I also don't like how some artists either don't draw certian species or make them all look like cats or dogs.
I really need to come here more often XP

I use to be a "clean" artist, but not anymore. You know why? It's a literal gold mine for furry artists... Because lets think about the avg cost of a commission... now think about your avg piece of NSFW art... Multiple characters, complex backgrounds, coloring, shading, sometimes even multiple full piece works in the form of a comic. That is a lot of money depending on the artist. Now I'm not saying the same can't be true for clean art but with NSFW art it's almost a guarantee, because everyone wants there porn to look nice they're often gifts for there partners etc. So they're gonna spend crazy amounts of money on it more often then not...

Most clean art tend to be personal pieces, generally colored and cell shaded but only containing a single character and often without a background, or only a simple backgrounds. I'm not going to condemn an artist an artist for offering there services for such a lucrative market, and when it comes down to it, it's how they make there income, so I say all the power to you. Plus here is the thing, most hosting sites make it pretty easy to block out the NSFW side of the fandom so I really don't see much of a problem but oh well sleepy wolf just got off work and I wanna take a nap now *flops and can't wait to start drawing after my nap* ... totally not gonna be drawing NSFW things :P

Yeah,someone at a con was complaining about us furries making characters sexy by drawing body parts on animal characters. Kinda ironic too,considering the con i was at had a panel where people talked about star trek and star wars slash fiction,hentai and even sexualized superhero costumes. Hypocrisy much.

He fits the I've no idea what I'm talking about but still expects people to take him seriously type guy. To add my own back when i used to be on reddit & was reading a worst fandom thread it was really annoying how most of it was just ignorant idiots just saying furries or bronies. but anytime i called a few out they would go on a rant how I'm a monster for not taking there garbage opinion seriously or just downvote me heavily.

Reddit can go overboard with drama since I've seen people getting attacked for being furs because someone went through there comment history when they lost a argument or something. Never really liked the place since is way too up & down for my tastes, i had report someone once on r/furry when he basically said that autistic are not fit for the fandom & nearly a second time when another misread my OP in a thread & got really nasty about it as well.

I better stop now since I'm now just ranting. >.>

That thing about someone misreading my OP she actually got upset that i said something negative FA & tried too twist it into that i was trolling. r/furry is really pro FA I've gotten downvoted for saying why i prefer sofurry & weasyl over FA for music reasons. yet all the responses i got were people ignoring why i joined those site or just getting touchy when i said that doing stuff that's not electronic or dance gets ignored & how basic the music section is.

there was one thread were the FA admins said that because joining FA is free the users don't have the say that they want a better site. when i called that out all i got was people just downvoting me while kept replying to me that it was just satire with out going into any detail. basically reddit just a joke it just 4chan if tried way too hard hide the fact that its just an idiot & r/furry just a circlejerking cesspit from last time i posted there before deleting my account.

Before I became a furry (right when I had found out about it), I was really quite interested and spent some time reading about furries, otherkins, and therians on my phone, actually getting into it. However, I accidentally stumbled onto a page with about 100 "furry" terms...

You could say that put me off of the fandom for a while, but nonetheless I returned, became a furry, and realized that hardly anyone actually uses all those words ;)

No; after trying to find the same site again, I think it was from a site called Furry Dolphin.

I don't know if there's anything I particularly "hate", as such... but if I had to pick one, it would be inadequate separation of reality and fantasy. I've had a few encounters with furries who cross boundaries because they're "in character" that would earn a non-suiter a stern talking-to. Take the time to figure out who's playing and who's not :D

Feeling like an oppressed rebel even though not a single person i know in person has done so much as lift a finger about me being a furry.

I guess all these horror stories about coming out messed with my idea of how it would go for me.  Was less than painless for me.

First thing I hate- there are not enough furries around my area.  Not that's the fandom's fault, but it still makes me sad. >.>'


I hate how some people just refuse to learn or even comprehend that being furry is not just a fetish. I tried explaining the truth to a guy once, and he just kept ignoring what I said and saying things like "don't expect me to dress up in an animal suit as a sexual favor, lol." I wouldn't want that anyway. I'm asexual, for crying out loud.

I think those are the only negative things I've experienced so far... *knocks on wood*
