    How to describe a slow transformation

    I would like to start writing TF stories, and I have an outline ready for one. It's a story where the transformation lasts several days and comes in stages. The stages are very slow and patient, but I can't seem to adequately describe it without it feeling rushed, bloated, or repetitive. So, how...

    Rodent paw pattern?

    I’m making my first suit which is a mouse partial and don’t know where to start with the paws. I want the fingers and largest paw pad (won’t include any on the fingers) to be pink fleece and use the base fur for the rest of it. I haven’t been able to find any rodent-specific patterns and my...

    Making furry friends on Twitter?

    I'm thinking of making a furry Twitter account. After reading some articles on how to make friends on there, I'm under the impression that gaining attention isn't all about making posts; it's also engaging with/starting a discussion on other posts. I think I have that right. I don't care about...

    When doing comms/requests, what's your process for interpreting characters into your style?

    If the reference art is anything but super realistic, sometimes I find myself second guessing which changes are acceptable to make when translating it into my style (Is their snout canonically really tiny, or does that artist just happen to draw all snouts smaller than I do? I don't usually draw...

    Advice on Ideas

    I have a lot of creative ideas floating around both in my head and in multiple documents saved on my computer. A bunch of random songs (just the lyrics, mind you), over sixty non-furry superhero characters, over thirty furry characters, several MLP characters (which I could easily make into...

    Hello! (I hope this all sounds okay I'm new to forms uwu) I'm a freelance artist and I'm trying to sell my art. I wanted to see where other artists sell their commission or where commissioners fine artists to commission? I'm pretty confident with my prices and work but I've been doubting it...

    Getting into adult art... Help!

    Hello friends! I'm a traditional artist specializing in animals and anthropomorphic characters. (My FA gallery is https://www.furaffinity.net/user/marandart/ to get an idea of the type of thing I make). It's not what you think of when you think of furry art, but a lot of furries enjoy my art...

    What would make my sona cuter?

    I'm all for Kubu looking cute, but I also like to juxtapose their charm with punkish or sinister items (e.g. the spiked collar and shoe spikes). Kubu doesn't wear much and has an overall simple design. I know something can be added or revised! All help much appreciated! ヽ(#◠∀◠)ノ ❤ ⭐~~⭐

    Hello everyone. So I'm getting back into art. I've been gone for like... 3 years due to mental health stuff that completely killed my will to draw.

    Learning a New Language, Feeling Overwhelmed; Any Advice?

    So my dumb ass decided to learn a language without any curriculum or official resources. It's not a widely spoken language, not technically useful per se, but it's what my grandmother spoke, so I'm learning it anyway. I feel like I've made progress over the past couple months for sure, but I...

    Need coloring advice.

    Working on a commission for someone, created the character for them from the ground up from the characteristics they described to me. I have everything done and colored but the shawl and undies, which they have no idea what they want the color to be, and neither do I. I'm incredibly indecisive...

    How do you promote your art?

    I work really hard on my art but it gets no likes... I'm really sad because I'm really proud of that stuff and I want to do commissions but I don't have the audience. (Here is my latest work that I am super proud of and a new commission type that I am offering)
