    Something interested I noted in a lot of bad furry stories is that the characters act NOTHING like the animals they're being portrayed by;

    for instance lets look at a bad web comic such as furthia high or concession or any generic furry teen drama story

    all of the characters though animals, are only doing regular things humans would generally do; the things they're doing really has nothing to do with the fact that they're dogs, cats or lizards;

    In other words, if you're going to make a serious comic about animals then make sure they're actually still acting like animals!

    The characters arent supposed to act like animals, they are personified as humans.

    Pretty much what tom said.
    The anthros are supposed to be human beings basically, but with different features/be intelligent.

    then there is no need to truly make them anthro; anything they do can be easily portrayed with humans rather then animals

    Anthro characters existed way before furries (the gods of various tribes ,and Egypt,and various folklore ) because for what ever reason humans see different attributes to various animals . Furries are just the extreme of that desire to create a living symbol for different attributes.

    When i make anthro characters i tend to carry the traits of their species.
    It's more fun that way, and no i am not publishing this crap i will never ever do so, because to do so, would make furries feel more important in mainstream society.
    and that is NOT what i want.

    Also, why are there no Anons and Patriotic Nigri and other groups raiding the Australian Furfaggot con?
    I would be very happy if Bikies came by and did a whole shooting of the lot of them.

    Kind of saddening. My childhood dream of making a story of shapeshifters, down the toilet.

    I prefer anthros with their instinctive animal nature. That way seems more realistic to me. Like a dog character, make him extremely/blindly loyal. Birds, energetic and free. Cats, lazy asses. Horses, black.

    I remember reading somewhere that it allows untalented art monkeys (I refuse to refer to them as artists) to avoid the uncanny valley easier, because the brain has specialized visual recognition centers where human faces are concerned, while it just lumps animal faces somewhere different.

    Basically, I'm saying that many of these faggots failed art class and can't draw actual human faces for shit. So they try to cover it up by putting a dog head on their abominations and hope that nobody notices.

    As far as literature goes, well some people are just freaks. Enough said.
