    The "My first drawing of a Furry" - Thread

    Hi there :) I've recently been bored, and I found this video, on how to start drawing Furries: Now I see a lot of people, who say stuff like: "I can't draw. Impossible!" Well, I was one of them :p But as boredom and curiosity both grew harmoniously, I thought, why not give it a try? So I...
