I know Fred, the person working on this, personally. He's an amazingly talented artist and has been working on a project like this off and on for nearly a decade. Earlier this year he finally settled on a format he was happy with and has been working everyday since then to make it a reality. He works out of flash and does ALL the animation work by himself.
I mean this literally. He draws, and re-draws, and re-draws every single frame by hand. It's very time consuming and during the time that we shared a workroom for a few months, I regularly watched him work for 8-9 hours just to complete a few seconds of animation.
If you have time, or a few bucks, check out his Patreon. He makes his sole income through Patreon at the moment, and things have only gotten more difficult for him as he recently moved back home to care for his ailing mother. Definitely check out his work and give it a bump on social media if you can! Fred is so talented and is very passionate about his work. I just hope people grow to appreciate it in the same way I have over the past year.
As stated, not sure if this is appropriate to post here given the somewhat broad meaning of "anthropomorphic."
Anyway, this is Fantastically False Facts About Amazing Animals, a weekly webcomic I do, many more at https://tapas.io/series/fantastically
Hi everyone, it was been over one month I came here last time with the promise to come back during March for art updates. Well a tad late given my work but it's still on time!
There's more pictures of 2.5D figurine commissions I've crafted since my last commissions. Hum I mean, furry characters commissions, there was some pokemon, animal crossing and even a frog but this shall do!
I came here for some updates for all the waiting orders to come up next in line! First I have created a trello page with a visible queue list to anyone to consult! It's updated everyday but weekends with not just commission progress via percentage but also with pictures of all finished orders! The queue list is in the right order so all waiting orders can be consulted by their names!
There's the link -> https://trello.com/b/DvXibCkq/commission-queue
Another update is buyers can now request tracked shipment! I have a perfect rate of safe shipment but in case you want to learn its trajectory to ease your mind, that can be done now! All buyers will be informed of that update once they'll be contacted!
New commissions orders are permanently open! You can assure your place in the queue by contacting me anytime!
There's my commission sheet with all the information you need! -> http://www.furaffinity.net/view/23026687/

Character drawing - $10
Short comic with your oc - $20 depending on complexity
^(Lewds - $15, I wont do vore/gore, but most other stuff is fair game, within reason)

Clashing colors is a HUGEEEE issue for me. Sadly this is rather common in the fandom. Makes me cringe.
Bytheways, here's a cool color palette generator. This entire site is awesome because they have an active community posting all kinds of color palettes
Honestly both are tough to read and are unappealing to me. I would make it easier to read, maybe tomorrow I'll try my best to post something that I like.
E: I got this far on a poster but didn't complete it/add text. If you like the idea the .kra file is here.
I created a submission form (Google Docs) that will dump whatever people put into a spreadsheet. I can then use the spreadsheet to do a bulk upload of it. I will use the latest changes. (I think) you can submit multiple times, but the latest will be the one used. It isn't automatic, but it will work.
It's interesting, but it would be better if we could get a bulk submission system. The code for emoticons right now can be generated with a script, but the flair system is a bit different. There is a Python script to sync with a text file so bulk management is possible.
If someone could give me some ideas of what the CSS code should do (if you want pictures, text, colors). Some problems do occur. Images have to be uploaded to Reddit individually (no remote linking) and I don't want to upload 2,109 pictures (a pic for each user). The emoticons works using background offset (one image with many pictures in a grid).
My username contains a text flair test. Very easy to update.
It's called Major\Minor! I would love all the help I can get in creating it!
Even if you only pledge $1!
I am using this to keep myself steady and focus on making the game full time.
Any and all assistance is appreciated in making my dream come true!
Thank you for checking it out!
In her defense, she said right in the description that
"Photograph used as reference, painted and textured over in Photoshop :)
She also links back to the original image too. flashmob much?
Assuming it's for real, and not the result of the account being taken over, I admit, I don't see the connection between the two entities - a 3D chat app, and a furry artwork site?
True, an infusion of moolah would help somewhat, but that still leaves what's commonly regarded as a fairly rickety platform underlying it, unless the plan were to be to just throw hardware at the problem.
Still, I suppose it's a moot point - I've not logged into my account there in years. =:/
(Well, this posting in the IMVU forums, apparently by a staffer, appears to confirm the claim)
Many many new furries these days are coming in younger and younger. 16, 15, 14... They're mostly immature and/or hyper and defiantly don't know how to act publicly. Then they get into this group and community who don't tell you to sit the F- down when they're making jackasses of themselves, and then they end up thinking that's okay and do it to people who don't like it.
Edit: I go to one of the largest MONTHLY Furry parties, the Prancing Skilitar. It sees something like 150-200 or even more Furs every month. I see the above happening first hand. Newer, young furries reveling in finally being excepted by a group instead of being an outcast, being hyper and jumping all over each other, and then in the following meets end up jumping on everyone thinking it's cool because it's what they've been 'taught'.
Yup! If you look at the history of this stuff, these labels of "hetero" "bi" and "homo" are all just inventions of modern society. The term "homosexual" didn't even enter the English language until 1892! (Source: http://www.etymonline.com/index.php?term=homosexual )
And my impression is that the ancient Greeks didn't really have a concept of "someone who exclusively sleeps with other males as social equals" at all -- people just sort of slept with whoever was around. If you were a soldier, you topped the younger soldiers. If you were a married man, you topped your wife.
People forget how totally different our model of mating and relationships is from the pre-modern world, and get so hung up on things that are only a couple hundred years old! I just want to laugh and laugh when I hear someone talk about marriage being eternal...
Upon looking it up, the overview looks like civ5, but when it comes down to combat there's some sort of card based system. Not sure how it works. Just got that at a glance.
Well then you'll be glad to hear Tracy recently went full-time on the comic. The past 3ish updates have happened within a month and a half of eachother, and she hopes to do them quicker.
All thanks to her patreon btw.
Well, a bit of a stretch, but the elder scrolls series have two furry species..
Also, maybe Lugaru, but that's not an RPG

From recent research (Q17):
17.4%: They're obnoxious, excessive, or attempt to force their culture on others
15.0%: They're just not the same as furries
13.0%: Just a general dislike for them
12.3%: Don't dislike the culture itself, but dislike specific bronies
11.9%: It's unimaginative, a fad, shallow, or one-dimensional
11.5%: It's silly, dumb, or immature
Nuka also determined that belief that bronies are furries is correlated with increased approval of bronies by furries.

Gimp is fine, but aimed more at photo manipulation than drawing. Krita is a free/open source program aimed more at digital painting than Gimp is. Sai is good and pretty cheap (~$60), and Photoshop is good but much more expensive, and certainly not necessary. Illustrator is a vector art program, and probably not what you want for drawing. Inkscape is a free/open source program that serves the same purpose as Illustrator, in case you do want to play with vector art.
Might want to put https://haveibeenpwned.com/ in the OP. You can search for breached websites without signing up, but that won't return a few breaches (including FA) which has been marked as sensitive. Great website, I think I'm in at least 6 or 7 lists by now.
Maybe try a password manager - Dashlane, 1Password,KeePass - I personally use LastPass, because I can have it sync to my phone, and I like the Chrome integration.
I'd never keep track of all my stuff without it.

I've settled on a price, loves!
So, I'd like to buy this binder! It's very important that I buy it within 2 or at most 3 days.
By binder, I mean chest binder for transmen! =) This one is perfect for me (Its my size and looks just like an undershirt, I should be able to wear it myself, unlike my old ones!) and it's ~$47 (good binders go for much higher).
So I'll be selling feral and anthro shaded, for only $18 =) This will be able to cover all the fees as well!
Please comment or PM if interested!

If you haven't get, give Krita a try. It's open-source, really feature-rich (closer to Photoshop than SAI), free and just all sorts of greatness. It's hard to argue with free, anyway. Assuming you're still making the move to SAI from MS Paint, you're having to get used to a new interface and tools anyway, so it shouldn't be the tough transition it is for a lot of artists who have gotten stuck in their ways with outdated SAI.
If you haven't already, I recommend trying out Krita. I started out with Gimp as well but now I like Krita more. sudo apt-get install krita on debian based systems and here's the website for windows
Yeah, as both /u/Raptros and /u/GoingToTheOcean have pointed out, 'Neer might be lying to his bosses about the state of affairs at FA.

Actually, pretty much.
He wrote in The Art of War that, at one time, his army was completely out numbered. So he had a small group of men go to the front line, visible before the enemy and its general, and slit their own throats (Dying with honor is a hell of an ideal, yeah?).
The enemy general turned around and left believing his opponent was goddamn insane. No one wants to fight people who are out only to inflict casualty and willing to fight to the last man.

Found it! Up Close and Personal by Sheila Snow. It's a love triangle with two humans and a raptor. And it isn't actually erotica so that bit was just possibly my hopeful fantasies. It's novella length so make some time if you're going to read it.
You can find it on Ao3 and Fanfiction.net.
if you don't have a drawing tablet id recommend paint.net its free, has layers and transparency and a useful line tool that is easy to use with a mouse. if you have tabled get pain tool sai its relitivy cheep ^^^( ^^^or ^^^easy ^^^to ^^^pirate) and has good tools works well with tablets and it has STABILIZERS !
It's a good idea to check haveibeenpwned since they make it easy to find out if your stuff is out there (Like that time Patreon got hacked). Hopefully there won't be a leak coming from this hack.
Either way, better to change your passwords regardless since websites are getting fucked over left and right by now.

> Sanitary facilities: Explain how a male anthro with a sheath is going to pee. Pooping is easy, you'd just have a squat toilet like in Japan or the Middle East and Asia. But that sheath is aiming Captain Willy at the sun, not at the ground. How to deal with that?
I remember reading a story about this back in the 90s that described a "saddle" type contraption that you sat in with a socket that faced downward. So you would connect and pee into the socket.
The story was called "Override," but I'll be damned if I can't find a copy right now.

You can see my art in better quality on my
or my furry amino
I’m on discord and telegram too!
I do have a job and a bit of a queue for my commissions but I will get everything done within a few weeks at most!
I will draw any species including humans, and I’m willing to draw anything that isn’t NSFW.
I’m a freshman Computer Animation student this year at Ringling College of Art and Design and it’d be awesome if some of my fellow furries could help me out! :D
I'm a Calgary furry that's also disconnected from the local community.
Alberta furries seems to be dead? I tried joining, application was rejected after a month or two for no particular reason. The publicly visible stuff also hints at an apocalypse: events on auto-repeat that no one RVSPs to, once-regular admin announcements haven't been made in a year, and no activity on the visible forum threads.
I'm also not particularly interested in using proprietary chat clients like discord and telegram. Actually, looking at Telegram, it seems like they're in the process of open sourcing the client stuff at least, so I might be able to use that to connect with local furries.
The thought of going to Edmonton for a convention is not that appealing: not close enough to be a local convention, so I need to pay for hotel, flight, etc., but also a small convention, so I might as well use that money to go to Vancouver or Toronto, or a proper-size American convention?
If you're looking for free games I strongly recommend itch.io, it's like bandcamp for games.
Odds are you can find some mildly furry stuff if you plug various animal species into the search.
There's no way those outfits are comfortable.
I personally think its a crime against fashion, forcing women to buy purses to make up for a lack of pockets. She's actually a character in this comic I do (https://tapas.io/series/zulu). This is just a tidbit I made after the comic (the link should be in the comments)
I think it's pretty good. My suggestions would be to work on the shading a bit more and to smooth out your lines. Try to imagine where on the picture the light would be coming from. Easy way would be too check out other art and look how they shade to get an idea of how it looks. Also, I never used photoshop to draw before, I prefer Clip Studio Paint: https://www.clipstudio.net/en
Try their trial and see if you like it. It's only one time $50. Also I used to use sketchbook pro by autodesk. They made it totally free now so you could try that too :3
Good luck and keep up the good work.
The cat is Mumus, the dog is Cipó
We don't really know what mixture the dog is, as he was adopted from a shelter. (someone left him with his brothers in a basket when he was a pup. So no info about him..)
Also a video.
If you want a free one, paint.NET is good I am told.
Don't neglect using regular pencil and paper, though! Digital art (whether done with a tablet or a mouse) has its own learning curve, which might throw you off if you haven't done much artwork before.
Well, Poor Man's Photoshop has a PSD plugin available. GIMP can open a PSD without external sources. The version of Autodesk Sketchbook Pro I am using also has native support for PSD files.
If you need a vector program, try Inkscape. Between that and GIMP, I get by. If I were arting for money, I'd probably try to replace GIMP. I've had enough of the floating layer dance.
Inkscape is perfect though.
I'd recommend Krita. It's free and open source and it works on Windows and Linux (and, I believe, Mac OS X, although I could be wrong). It's got a wide variety of realistic brushes that give you a reasonable level of control even with a mouse, and it supports graphics tablets too should you ever get one (which I highly recommend that you do - drawing neat lines with a mouse is ridiculously difficult).
I think the trick lies in improving your workflow. I see that most people still use PaintTool SAI when there are more powerful tools out there (like Krita, which is an effin marvel) that would let them produce better results faster if they actually put some effort into learning new tools.
I'm a programmer, and as one I'm always looking for the best tool I can use to tackle a certain kind of problem, we have flame wars about how better we can be at doing X job with our preferred tool (see Vim vs Emacs war, Object-Oriented vs Procedural vs Functional, OS war,....), thus we are always striving to better ourselves both through the experience we acquire with theory and practice and by the use of different, better tools. Digital artists seem to stick with one tool and improve solely by trying to use what they have in different ways as if they were still limited to pencil and paper.
The closest to an actual source I could immediately find was this, where several users report malware on the IMVU website and various potentially unwanted program reports from their anti-virus software. Some of those reports are years old, but other more recent ones echo those concerns.
If you don't know about letsencrypt already, see https://letsencrypt.org/ Free SSL certs :)
(That goes for anyone else.. SSL certs are free these days and performance is no longer an issue: https://istlsfastyet.com/)
There are some weird furries out there. Loud minority. Also people tend to automatically hate things they don't understand.
Money, no way around it. Just as common courtesy - don't ask for free art unless it's explicitly offered.
Anywhere you want! FA is sort of the major hub for furs. Picarto has art streams and PWYW streams if you want stuff fairly cheap and quick. And of course here on Reddit!
I keep misreading this a Klingon.furnet.org. Which would also be awesome.
It's not something you put into your browser, they're URLs, like websites, but instead they're for chatting.
You need an IRC client, while there are in-browser ones, i'm not sure if you can connect to networks that aren't affiliated with the service. Instead you get something like Xchat (and this guy's mIRC is another one). Which will give you a little menu that says what server you want to long onto. (in this case, irc.furnet.org) Type that in, and you should be fine from there.
Telegram's a messenger like Skype or Kik, made by privacy advocates with a bunch of privacy features. It's recently exploded in popularity among furries for its custom Stickers capability, custom emotes based on whatever you wanna upload.
On FA you'll see a bunch of artists selling 'sticker packs' lately, they're selling sets of expressions for Telegram.
Anthros are simply a blend of human and animal, so you'll want to study animals and people.
I'd recommend looking up "Successful Drawing", "Figure Drawing for all it's Worth" and "Drawing the Head and Hands" by Andrew Loomis. Successful Drawing goes into the fundamentals of art and talks about motivation, it's a good place to start for any beginning artist. For coloring, I would recommend "Color & Light, a Guide for the Realist Painter" by James Gurney, and I'd also recommend looking up his blog and subscribing to it.
For help with digital art and art in general, check out CTRL+Paint http://ctrlpaint.com/ and PSGs Art Tutorial https://androidarts.com/art_tut.htm . Other than that, if there are any particular artists you look up to, try catching them in a stream or otherwise study their techniques. You could venture asking them some questions about their work method, but preferably only if you have specific questions. Hope this helps a bit!
Hello! I think it became an obsession. Often it's basically the only thing I've been doing once I get home from work. Some days have been 12-14 hours just streaming with friends, well into absurd hours of the night/morning. Haven't played any video games until maybe a week ago. Another very inspirational artist (mainly in terms of interactivity) was DreamingWanderer, responsible for the fox-with-arms-crossed on the left side of the furry Reddit banner.
The artist that was the straw that broke the camel's back in terms of getting me to actually start drawing was Loaf (-lofi) and his immersive video game-like environments. We talked a little bit about James Gurney's books at BLFC! He's extremely nice.
Overall, THE most helpful lessons I've had just starting out were the ones from www.drawabox.com. The author of those lessons is very strict on what the right way is to draw something (in the context of those lessons) and for me that really helped a ton. His critique informed my self-critique. I still have a long way to go! Anatomy is the hardest part for me, and I've been spending the past few weeks just doing anatomy drills. The most helpful book for that (for me so far) is Figure Drawing for All It's Worth by Andrew Loomis.
Welcome to the awesome and terrifying world of drawing!
As the others have said, most journeys start with drawing from life or photos. But it isn't as easy as it looks! If it was, everyone would be a competent drafter. You actually need to hone your "artists eye" and practice really inspecting, internalizing and evaluating the world around you. "Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain" is probably the most popular book on this subject. Drawing from life and photos is most importantly to train yourself to see. At that stage, the quality of your lines aren't important. In fact, most skilled artists agree that "being able to see" is 90% of being a good drafter. The other 10% is your actual technical ability. Your physical motor skills.
So yeah, do that A LOT. Just drawing from images or life. The second place to start is practicing lines, curves, cubes, spheres, cylinders etc. The basic shapes and forms. These are the motor skills I mentioned above, and they take a lot of grinding. Just practice, practice, practice. /r/artfundamentals has lessons covering important exercises, and you can find tons of resources elsewhere too like /r/FurryArtSchool!
Once you're confident with your tool of choice [stylus, in your case] and have at least a few dozen hours of directed, focused practice behind you then you can begin to practice construction drawing! Basically, drawing from imagination. You can also begin learning some basic rendering [shading spheres etc] and gesture drawing!
That basically covers everything for a beginning artist, and that right there should keep you busy for a long time. While it seems like a linear progression, it really isn't. You never leave anything behind. You won't ever "finish" life drawing or shape exercises or gesture drawing or any of the fundamentals really. You have to keep practicing to get better. There isn't any plateau in art except for ones you set yourself.
There are two parts, in my opinion.
Honing your "artist's eye". [This is the know-how]. Practice replicating what you see, from life or reference. Symbol drawing needs to be tossed out to the curb. No amount of lines, planes and ellipses will cure symbol drawing. It is an issue of perception, not of technical skill. There are plenty of resources online that cover this, one of the most famous being "Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain". People have mixed feelings about that book, but there are plenty of alternatives.
As you said, lines and arches and planes and ellipses. This is the mechanical part. It's exercise and muscle memory. Learning to use your tool [pen, pencil] to whatever end. There are tons of resources on this. Various exercises and warm ups to improve motor skill.
So yeah, those are the two most broad and fundamental parts of drawing. Learning to see things as they are and learning how to render them on paper. If you have a clear image in your mind [or a reference image/life subject], and you can pair that with the ability to render it on paper, then you can draw.
Check out a book called Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain: http://www.amazon.com/Drawing-Right-Side-Brain-Definitive/dp/1585429201. You'll immediately improve as you learn things like not drawing from symbols and learning to draw what you see. Most people get stuck in the symbol drawing stage when they're in elementary school, which is why it's embarrassing to pick it back up as an adult. It'll look like a child's drawing until you learn WHY it looks that way, and learn the proper way to perceive things you're drawing. It's also extremely friendly and approachable for beginners.
Learning the fundamentals of drawing can help with understanding the whole process. I am working my way through this book: Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain
It basically walks you thorough the concepts behind drawing and teaches you the principals of contour, negative space, etc.
It's written by an art professor and has projects throughout the book.
Art classes are great, but might be too costly. The book is nice because you can go at your own pace. I've found it to be extremely useful.
Figured seeing as people approved of my furry trash wallpaper post, I'd post the rest of them too. I've cropped them all to a 9:16 aspect ratio for use on phones (1080x1920, etc.). I've got them set to change automatically every three minutes, using the Wallpaper Changer app. If I add any more to my collection, I'll try and remember to stick 'em in the album too. c:
Once you install it, open its settings > Desktop > Desktop grid > Subgrid Positioning.
Can also do silly stuff like this pyramid of apps because why not.
It's Android [ Note 4 ] using NovaLauncher with Vopor icon pack.
I like to have my home screens/efficient clean and Nova does it well :3
Hijacking because I have the same problem. Don't take 10mg melatonin - larger amounts of melatonin don't actually do anything. You want about 0.3mg (yes, zero point three) taken 1 hour to 30 minutes before you sleep. Don't swallow it, either - dissolve it under your tongue. So you're gonna have to cut those 10mg tabs into 30 pieces each. You'd probably be better off just buying new ones at a smaller dose.
Also, follow good sleep habits. This is tough in college, but will maximize the effects of the melatonin. Don't expose yourself to bright lights before sleeping. If you must use screens at night, use f.lux to eliminate the blue light. Don't drink before sleeping - drinking actually disrupts your sleep. You may pass out, but you won't get rest.
By far the most important thing is to get sunlight and be active during the day. I work out twice per day now and it's been the single biggest change helping me sleep. But ya, you can't pop 10mg melatonin at 2am and expect to knock out. That's not how it works. It's a hormone, not a tranquilizer, so it works best when you time it to fit your lifestyle changes.
What is PayPal’s policy on transactions that involve sexually oriented goods and services?
"Digital Goods – PayPal prohibits all account holders from buying or selling sexually oriented digital goods, including downloadable pictures or videos, subscriptions to websites, or other content delivered through a digital medium."
It's very plainly stated in their policies. So just don't make it obvious that the product is of a sexual nature. Boom, problem solved.
Their policy on physicals goods, applicable only in the US, is different and more complex. Physical goods of a sexual nature, like "toys", are allowed so long as they meet certain criteria. But for digital goods, it is very clear.
Looks like something that could possibly be rendered in Blender. It's open sourced and free I think. There are lots of YouTube tutorials. But following along to make a donut with them was really tricky maybe its easier in the newer version Blender website
Fortunately I have a backup. Here's a virus scan of the file if you don't trust me, and feel free to scan it with whatever else you trust.
I don't feel like any of these are adequately explanatory, so I'll do what I can.
Meta-furry, like meta-anything, is sort of the perspective from the outside looking in. As an example, a ton of people go to a furry convention and do furry stuff and yadda yadda. The statistics representing attendance, gender/race/age diversity, and things like that would be "meta-furry".
The writing I've done for adjective|species (a site very focused on meta-furry that can give you a perfect idea of what's up) is exactly this category: It's focused on the social interactions online and offline of furries from other countries. It's basically anthropology. The Anthropomorphic Research Project website is another good place to check out what "meta-furry" is.
Also, "meta-furry" isn't really a personal label. I have no idea where people are pulling this stuff from.
If you really wanna give it another crack I could try and dig up some stuff for you. There's a lot of really good resources which teach programming fundamentals (like codecademy for instance) which are aimed at people with no prior experience or knowledge. The thing with a lot of tutorials is that often they are teaching you how to do a specific thing so sometimes it can be hard to take away more general knowledge from it.
Sitting there staring at a screen dumbfounded for hours is also kinda part of the experience^tm - more often than not it's the simplest things (hell, in my microcontroller course I literally spent about an hour frantically checking over everything with a digital oscilloscope and stepping through my code insisting to my assessor that the code worked last time I ran it before realising that I was plugging the wire into the wrong port and, in fact, if you flip the board upside down the port is on the other side then. Some engineer I am... >_<)

If you scroll down the page you get a summary of the possible licences for CC works.
I always recommend CC BY-SA 4.0 or CC BY-NC as both allow most usages but keep the license intact even through remixing and make sure you will be credited as original creator.
Don't worry Zulu! All sizes are good! Just uh....maybe hold the bubble tea in your hands next time....
