Why do many furry artists try to appeal to one specific audience?

.Ok, I should've elaborated on the people that do art for gay people. Personally, I think bi artists have a lot more to offer than straight or gay artists. Even straight men/women and gays can appreciate their art.
 
True, they would get more commissions making gay art too...
But it should not be a issue, some artists are not comfortable with drawing gay art or porn in general.
There are plenty of artists who would draw gay art anyway.

This fandom is so full of gay people that suggestions of systematic homophobia are...a bit unrealistic.

I've seen my fair share of homophobic people in the fandom. Just cuz gays are in it doesn't mean they don't exist. :rolleyes:

OT: I dunno. Seems like they're just into heterosexual stuff. It's not a big deal imo.

It cracks me up because it's always the ones who have their favorites filled with stuff like a hypermuscle fox stuffing Lola Bunny into his dickhole or something and then you see them make a comment like "Oh that's disgusting!" on regular gay porn.

Well, and transphobia is certainly a Thing in the fandom, from what I've seen.

One would think that a fandom filled with so many gay people would tend to either discourage or reform homophobes, but hey, who said people made sense?

It occurs to me that if most of your furry interactions are online, and you've customized your online space to give you only the art, porn, music, friend messages, and news you want, you can easily avoid the reality of gay furries if you want to.

Gay people can make bi or straight porn you know. Just like how straight people are able to make gay porn.

It is sad that Art is such a canabalistic field. So many people have degrees in the field. After I earned my credentials I found that for every one position that became available there were from 2500 to 5000 applicants. For this reason I ask people, even if they seem like they are selling out by only doing one type of art, just remember they have to eat! Some times they may not really believe in that subject but there is money and with money comes food and the possibility to live one day closer to attaining the real goal and painting just what they feel and not what pays the bills!

isn't the average amount of males who are gay like 5%? I thought also that the amount of gay crap in the furry porn community was about 50%, if that's true (which Idk if it is) but it seems like it, then wouldn't that be way skewed toward the homosexual's preference?

Yes, this is true. It's far more likely that there are artists who draw so much gay stuff that it alienates straight people, than the other way round in my view.

Well there aint no denying the quality of some gay artists but i dont want to look at a wall of dicks so i dont follow or watch artists that just post or mostly post gay artwork.

I'd really like the OP to point give examples of these homphobic people. Sure they exist but since when did artists specifically pander to homophobes?? Unless you mean to say homophobic means not liking gay porn in this context because I've got some news for you.

This really doesn't make any sense.

I agree, but like, the opposite. Even if I like the style of art, I won't watch a person if they draw a lot of female porn.

But this forum already does a fine job of that.

I think you mean the entire internet. What is done cannot be undone.

I'm curious as to how an artist can offer "more" by just their sexuality. xD!

The person was referring to the content of the art, while possibly thinking only bi artists draw bi porn, gay artists draw gay porn, straight draw straight porn, etc.


I think it's silly, because not all straight/gay/whatever people are like "Well this picture has 2 dicks and a vagina, so I'll just pay attention to the pairing I like!" and some have imagines "ruined" for them by the presence of the dick/vagina in the picture.
