A Fox's Den by Zethelius A Fox's Den by Zethelius
Yeah, an Anthropomorphic Fox's House.
The letter he was writing on the desk does say something, however to you it is upside down, and it is written in my cursive. But the letter is basically him hailing me for drawing him into his existence upon the paper.

I am very impressed by the background in this one. lle little details are marvelous. I really like the scroll work on the candle holder in the very front. It matches the scroll work thats farther back in the picture.

Ahh you make me want to draw more backgrounds. All the details are great. And (though I suppose that this is a bit of a strange compliment) though I don't usually like anthros, I really dig yours. They have a sort of mythical quality.

Okay, so please excuse the late reply but;
Thank you :D
And you certainly aren't alone, because I've heard the "I generally don't like anthros but there's something about yours that I do" from actually quite a few of my watchers.

And truthfully I don't really understand why either.
You said that they have sort of a mythical quality to them. hearing it from somebody else helps get a more accurate idea of what people think about my art, and since you brought up the subject would you at all mind describing what you think sets mine apart from others?
Thanks :-)

Well, it's probably because most other anthro art I see looks really overdone, with a bunch of neon colors and crazy accessories, and while the art itself might be good, the design is just not easy on the eyes. To me, anthropomorphic animals already have a natural mythological quality, and I really like the way you bring it out with the settings and such, while others seem to ignore it and even actively deny it. Also, with yours they very much 'feel' like animals though they're human shaped; more like 'animals with human ways' rather than what I usually see which is 'humans with animal ways'.

It's all down to personal preference, really; this is just what I think.

Also I have recently realized that your stuff reminds me of the Redwall books, which is awesome :D

I usually don't look through the anthro gallery either, so I decided to to take my every so often look (and my dad picked the WRONG f**king time to look over my shoulder in that gallery :dead:)

But anyway, what clicked with me about what you said is that they are animals with human characteristics, rather than humans with animal characteristics.

so thank you for saying that.

I was also thinking about it too, and I think that somewhere deep down there's something about anthro that we all like, otherwise we wouldn't be finding sculptures and such with anthropomorphic characters that are nearly 30,000 years old :-)
