New Here! Does kemonomimi and other variants have a place at FA?

    Browsing around a little and I'm confused at where the boundaries lie between cartoon animal/furry and furry/kemonomimi. I don't really see art of human characters with animal characteristics as much here, and I'm not sure if it's bc it's not as popular or if it just doesn't fit. Like is Anubis a furry?

    FA doesn't require art posted to be furry at all, actually. If you want to draw humans, you do you. If you want to draw kemonomimi, you do you. It's all okay long as you follow the AUP/COC/TOS.

    FA's pretty lenient in general in terms of what's allowed there.

    Just follow the rules/posting rules, and you're fine.

    You see me everywhere? Not even I can handle seeing myself everywhere. How do you put up with it? :p

    Oh yeah, you're right. I take a few moments to step outside and breathe in some fresh air. The sunshine makes me forget for a moment that there's no-- AWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

    Awkward punishment hugging is some good shit.

    To the subject at hand, but somewhat away from the rules discussion: I really think that if you asked people who were super interested in kemonomimi stuff if they were interested in other sorts of animal anthropomorphism, and you got a genuinely honest sample population, I would suspect that a significant proportion of those people would cop to being *somewhere* on the furry spectrum. Being beastly, whether a little or a lot, really is its own appeal. Hell, anime is pretty all over the place about where the line is to begin with: The cat-women in Asobi ni Iku yo! have a lot more in common with humans than they do the likes of Aisha from Outlaw Star, and that's just sticking with one take on the trope.

    Hmmm, I got away with my "awooo..." that I posted on another thread :p

    Yaka must be lenient with his own laws XD

    Fine, double awkward hug for you, then. Seeing as you awoo'd twice!

    This awkwardness will be double the effect and last twice as long. o.o

    *hugs 18000%+ awkwardly*

    And let that be a lesson! :3

    Would you say the same if the awkwardness of that hug lingered afterwards? :D

    Nooooooooo, I have to go to work tomorrow XD

    I'm going to have to take that awkwardness with me...

    *Has not thought this through entirely but graciously accepts the punishment because, you know, rules are rules*

    Just had to Google Kemonomimi because I'm a noob and had no idea what it meant XD

    Suffice to say that they do have animal features, and people can be as full-on Furry or as minimal Furry as they like, so, yeah :D

    Go for it :)

    Yeah not a mainstream term yet! Thanks to everyone for the encouragement! I guess "New" isn't a complete summary of what this site is haha
