ehhhhh seems sketchy.
as a fan of gore, I find furry gore to be very different and unrealistic from real life gore. But there are people out there who want to commission a pic in their head, but replace the humans with furries so they dont seem creepy.
which I always thought was hilariously...
99% of the people I'm friends with irl are furries. I would definitely look to see if there's meets in your area. it's really helpful to me. Also furries on facebook are generally more friendly and down to hang out than people not on facebook.
I chose a griffin, because its all my characters mashed together. I have a phoenix, a jackal, and a grey humanoid guy. basically my fursona is a griffin thats jackal/phoenix and wears clothes like my human guy.
gonna go out on a limb and say that from my experience it depends on whats depicted and why. I've had to actually convince several people to not go into their place of work to shoot it up because they saw that others who had done so were effective.
