So I'm wondering what is your favorite genre of furry art. This will just be a poll. If you want to post more about it, you can do that, too.

Normal Life: Furries in regular normal life scenes. Nothing too eccentric here.
Fantasy: Furries in fantasy/medieval settings. Swords, magic, whatever. Dragons, unicorns, etc don't have to be in this category.
Cute: This is like that overly cute furry art. Usually the kind that will give you diabetes and stuff.
Erotic: It's main purpose is to turn you on. What else do I need to say?
Sci-fi (and other punk stuff): Machinery, cybernetics, steam, I don't know how any of it works. But maybe you do.
Feral: Four legs are better than two!
Literature: "The pen is mightier than the sword," said the stabbed writer.

Well, that's all I can think of. I probably missed a good category. Oh well. Oh and you can only choose one, so choose wisely :V

Not meaning to bash but why is sci fi and punk in the same choice? It's doesn't make sense to me.

Anyway out of those choices I'd say cute or erotic.

Normal life sounds too much like slice of life. Blech.
I think anthros work well in fantasy (as is where they often appear in non-furry media).

Fantasy, erotic. Isn't that the shady corner of the entirety of the furry fandom?

The good kind, honestly. Namely clean + anything else on the list , but i've favorited some erotic art before, because it was extremely well done, even though that's not my regular bag.

@Dbatty, punk becasye of things like cyberpunk, steampunk, dieselpunk... etc
I'm gonna vote for fantasy. I don't really have a preference towards anything though as long as it's well drawn.

I like them all, and I don't have any favorites. As long as it is something well drawn/written and not disgusting, of course.

But those are all punk variations of scifi, with actual punk elements.

I don't know why this rustles my jimmies so much, but it does.
So maybe that's why they only said punks instead of listing them all?
Also your jimmies are quite easily rustled. You should look into that ;V

I'm a sword and sorcery person. Plus that setting suits anthros quite well

Anything that's not porn (couples yes, but no sex), drawn decently and has some meaning/story behind it. My preferences inculde feral dragons, fantasy theme and anything related to those two.

I like quality art. If it looks good to me it will earn a favorite. Simple as that. I guess if I had to pick I'd say fantasy settings.

Of course I frequent erotic art as well.

Sci-fi and a bit of fantasy i guess, although most of my favs are just natural style settings i guess, like anthro wolves just chillin out in the wild. In the small minority are just normal settings with a couple of saucy stuff. Nothing pornographic, just a bit of bewb on a highly detailed piece :3

Regardless of content I am on a mission to see all the furry art. >:C

Honestly though I can't think of an answer for this. I prefer technique to subjectmatter in general.

Interesting result. I wasn't expecting fantasy to be in the lead. Erotic seems about right, and I also expected normal life to be higher. Ferals apparently have no love. And nobody here is a bookworm. lol

And punk was just short for steampunk, cyberpunk, etc. They share a lot of similarities to sci-fi. It's like an alternative progression of science or something like that.

I'd have voted for ferals, but three things:

a. People here don't like "Feral" because they attract zoophiles. Never failed, it typically does.
b. With that, it's very hard to establish the sentient (or sapient?) feral especially when there's a sort of behind the scenes arms race with different aspects of the furry community to out-shock, or out maneuver a certain demographic, moderator, or site owner for the fandom. "Feral" is just one of those battlegrounds FA is now ... treading.

InkBunny acquired cub. I believe e621 still has that, and quite a few other things, Jesus. u18 chan is a free for all at times, but they've got new rules in place; lulz.net/furri ... I don't frequent. pawsru.org I think? Free for all there too, just no violence or scat. Breath of fresh air on occasion. But whatever community gets rid of x, either they're attempting to get rid of toxic elements, or it's a very bizarre double standard. At least to me. But I can see all of the arguments at work here, so. Some people need to please advertisers, others, people bring it to a vote and decide their environment. I don't mind that either, but continue on ...
c. And Point C of course is very different. From all of the negative and website versus website, forum vs. forum, mIRC chat vs mIRC chat, moral, amoral, mongoloid warfare, the pack for each relevant site has essentially been picked. Step outside the norms of that website, and you're evil. Enforce them, and you're a good-two shoes.

So, I'd like to conclude that I would vote for feral, but to do so, I would also have to attempt to mitigate this shitty minefield that's been established by all of these completely different parties. And what's worse, is that for now, they're all right, which makes it terrible for people like me; but I honestly? I don't need feral. Though I would like to vote for it because not every fictional creature NEEDS to be standing up on two legs. So much of our fantasy fiction deals with "feral" like creatures, the only thing that separates them from characters that are anthropomorphized to such the degree that they're essentially bipeds, is the bipedal issue. Dragons aren't bipeds, are they feral?

It's just, an interesting culture war, when you look back on it all.

Too bad I couldn't vote for both normal life and sci-fi/punk options. xP

It's a tie between fantasy and sci-fi, which are two genres I love in general.

I love to read, but I don't find much worthwhile furry literature within the fandom so that's out. Amateur fiction in general is a gamble, though I've stumbled across some real gems over the years.

I like art for art's sake.

I like pieces that explore emotions, thoughts, and ideas or tell a story or present themselves as a selection of puzzle pieces for some hidden message or meaning.

I don't mean to get all 2deep4u, I do like all sorts of pics made for the sake of fun, like fanart for something I like, a joke, stuff like that, but I really do like a few things (of many forms, written, visual, whatever) that I can be deeply immersed in, captivated by. Things that really make me think. Stuff that I look at for the first time and admire it at face value, then look at it again and go "wow".

Also pinups are good.

I mostly enjoy futuristic and industrial style art.

The way I enjoy visual art is similar to the way I enjoy music. Even if it's pretty shitty, I'll try to find some way to appreciate it. I like the colors in this. I like how emotionally invested and passionate this artist is about this concept. I like the personal thoughts this part is invoking in me. I like how this part reminds me or something.

Shit like that. The only thing worse than bad art is boring art.
