    Looking for room in the Westin for Anthrocon (Thur-Sun)

    Pretty much what it says on the tin. My one friend's prospect fell through and left me high and dry, and I've lost all contact information with anyone that's still possibly going. I'm looking for a room share at the Westin (the hotel attached to the convention center) for ease of changing into...

    ART IS FOR CUNTS

    What is it?

    Your Story

    I didn't realize I was furry until I attended my first Anthrocon a few years ago, and started recognizing artists by name. Sort of a 'wait, when did this happen?' moment for me. For... I dunno, ten years or more beforehand I had been dabbling in furry stuff, and it all sort of caught up with...

    How to get views?

    I wish it were less true, but most of the other people in this thread seem to have the right idea; either be really, -really- good, or find some awkward niche to fill (*coughporncoughfetishartcoughcough*). I have pieces that passed through the front page without a single view, and other pieces...

    The World is Becoming a Volcano

    Sorry I kind of skimmed through the last page and a half, but I wanted to bring up a point in regards to this bit from the first page. More and more often, what were originally full-time positions in this country are being split up into part-time positions, because employers have realized that...

    Roleplay Fails

    If we limit it to real life, face-to-face tabletop RP's, the worst one I was ever in was a campaign where the DM claimed that he was writing a book based on the events that took place. Or, rather, he was writing the campaign based on a book he had already planned out, so our characters were...

    I can't even lines or finish a picture...

    Man, it took me a long time to get back around to this. But I wanted to give Centra's suggestion a shot, and eschew lines almost entirely and go straight to color. This is the result: It does kind of save me from doing lineart that I never learned how to do, but I'd like a few more pairs of...

    I can't even lines or finish a picture...

    That seems to pretty much be the issue: getting to the point to where I can line and color a picture seems to take too long. I could be over-reacting in the face of said artists who just go straight to detailed lines, but it feels like my method has too many steps to make it work on a...

    I can't even lines or finish a picture...

    I can't believe I went to college for this sort of thing, and actually finishing or inking a picture in any way has eluded me the whole time. Most of the emphasis throughout my education was on starting a picture properly, and getting a well-proportioned sketch down, and I'm not gonna deny I've...

    MMO or Somesuch to Play with the Roommates?

    I actually considered Diablo II, and just playing over the LAN to avoid any nonsense from BNut. My only problem is that Blizzard's idea of extending gameplay is to make you play the same campaign again on a harder difficulty setting. But then again, we could probably get some good play time...

    MMO or Somesuch to Play with the Roommates?

    So my roommates like MMORPG's, to the extent that they're most of what they spend their free time doing. And when they have long conversations about them, I tend to hover nearby to try and listen, rapidly lose interest in the discussion of terms that have little to no meaning to me, then wander...

    Larpin n' shit

    Agreed to the above. Forum RP just seems too slow and klunky to work, and even if you find some kind of application or MUD, it requires some kind of rigid system in place to make things work. I did freeform text-based for maybe 5-6 years; took me about that long to realize that it was awful...

    Introductions are in order!

    It's nearly 3 AM. I'm restless. I feel like trying to do -some- social activity at this hour. Didn't introduce myself. Lez du dis What's your name? I'm Axle_Gear. I got it from that old Rocket Knight Adventures game from the Genesis. Been using it as a handle for a while, and it's just...

    human VS anthro. who would win in a fight?

    I think we can safely conclude the OP is too vague to come up with a definite answer. For instance, we specified no firearms or advanced weaponry, but what about melee weapons in general? The biggest edge early humans had against the wild world was long, pointed sticks they could carry with...

    Looking for builder in Pittsburgh area

    I had actually tried posing the same question on the PAFurry site, only to be met with resounding silence on the matter. There -was- one, but he scampered off to Florida some time ago (kind of leaving me high and dry on the matter, to boot. << ). I'll shoot you a message on FA and see what can...

    Do you mean to tell me there's not a single builder anywhere in the Pittsburgh area? o-o

    Looking for builder in Pittsburgh area

    You'd think, with Pittsburgh being the host of the largest furry convention in the world, that the place would have at least -one- builder hanging around. But, if they're out there, I have no idea they exist. I'm looking to have a plain black body made from Mongolian style fur (the kind that's...

    Theory as to why foxes are the most common fursona:

    I'm somewhat surprised no one has mentioned the old tales of Reynard yet: Foxes have been used for fursonas since the 1100's.

    Dummy Head?

    I've been wanting to build my own costume head using rather unorthodox techniques, and I'm thinking the best way to do this would be to create some kind of mock-up of my own head to use as a steady base for construction. Naturally, I have a skull of freakish proportions, so no store-bought item...
