    I got into the fandom in somewhat of an odd way, I suppose. I was/am very much into rubber/latex puppy play, with me as the fully encased, hyper, waggity pup, and it was via this that I started to meet furries, and also, to see where it'd be fun to also adopt the identities of other animals, as this opened up a limitless world of fun and imagination...so while it started out more or less sexual, it's grown to become something I like on many different levels. I also loved and still love finding a good RP, where the story just moves along, and you feel very much in tune with the other person/people; oddly, I have met most of my closer furry friends after having Rpd with them; it's as if we reveal sides of ourselves via collaborative fiction that might be hard to express otherwise. (And I do not mean merely in yiffy terms!)

    Also, I can tend to be on the brooding, dark, intellectual side, so this whole fandom has been a great way to get me out of that.

    I used to troll people online and I raided a furry community on Google+ with some other trolls. I ended up liking the idea of anthropomorphic animals and I was in the closet about being a furry for around 2 years (mainly because I didn't want to be called a freak or a retard) and here I am. Ironic, isn't it? I used to troll furries, only to become one myself later on. I still love screwing around with people, though. Just not as much as I used too.

    As a kid I was always into mythology and ancient religions that had gods, goddess who were described to have had animal like features, so as a kid I would try to concept and depict what was written into illustration.
    I just recently discovered the furry community so it wasn't until recently that I started drawing things of this nature again. I have changed a lot and I don't draw anthros as ethereal beings anymore but I still have fun!^^

    I've always loved anthropomorphic animals, wether it was fan art, movies, or books. I found the furry community through youtube about a year ago.

    It all started when I saw this video:


    Which led me to watching this video:


    Which then encouraged me to look up furry convention videos. A gameshow sort of thing called CatchFURase at Confuzzled was one of the highlights for me. Also, I enjoyed watching many of the convention dancing competitions even though many of the dancers were quite amateurish. Anyways, these kinds of videos convinced me that I was interested in this sort of stuff and so I started considering myself a furry.

    Furry porn might have been a reason as well.
