Spreading a new species around.

Hi there, Furryjones here. As a writer i'm constantly coming up with new creatures and races to populate my stories with, and about a week ago I created the Praeom (Pray-om) specifically in mind for fellow furries that wanted something different. I spent about 12 hours creating the first drawing and writing out a ten page bio on every little detail I could think of them, from their internal structure to their religion! Now i'm just wondering, how or what is the best way to share this with other furries? I'd like this race to go the same way as the sergal, with several different artists of varying skill interpreting my idea, furries picking it up and using it for their own fursona, that sort of thing. I just need some help spreading this race and their ideals around. If you do find yourself curious to just what the Praeom are about, or look like, visit http://www.furaffinity.net/user/furryjones/ and have a look around at my latest submissions.

THAT is creepy. But kind of neat. I think you're a very creative drawer, but starting up a whole new fur species to the community isn't going to be a cakewalk. I've never even heard of a "sergal" until you just mentioned it. Good luck getting the word around.

I guess the only thing i can do is just keep drawing them and spreading them around to as many sources as possible so the greatest amount of people look at them. Thanks for being the only poster that actually had something to say about my question lol.

Is that new species as annoying as Sergals with their constant "OMG look I'm so cool and cruel and sexeh"?

Don't forget fluffy. We're just adorable little bundles of fluff. And rape.

Ten pages? Goddamn you're really getting into it. I dunno how the sergal took off, I'm guessing it was pure luck and coincidences. All you can do is hope for those I guess, promote it but don't shove it down people's throats and stuff

Yea, it has some sergal similarities.

Bu-but, Sergals look awesome...
And interesting designs OP, kinda reminds me of a lanky Krogan.

Do you have a base description like I do, despite I have zero artwork for my reptilian alien humanoid species?

The most original fursonas are real animals that nobody uses, creating your own animal out of what is obviously a minor modification of a popular fursona species is pretentious to the max.

Not going to lie: your species looks like the Sergal.


True but given sergals are basically cheese heads anything with a pointed head is going to be labeled a sergal from now on :/

No matter how biologically diverse the critter may be sergals are just a chimera of different things so anything from now on is going to have sergal traits, even though they are just traits derived from nature

I don't mind stepping on your toes, but that isn't all right. Sergals are just as diverse as anything else.

It's not the heads that made me think "Sergal", but the "mane" and the way the body is posed (the implied skeleton).
I mean, it's basically a Sergal with a bigger hump and huge hands and feet.

I wouldn't call them cheese heads. That's just the way SL has them. A real sergal is a bit more complex than a bunch of triangles. Imo the most definitive sergal ref
