I've noticed for at least a good year or two how, whenever anyone posts any of Furronika's art on here, everyone seems to come on JUST to bash it as shit, and the reason is always the same: "it's just humans with animal heads".
I've never understood this opinion, honestly; most furry porn, by definition, is humans with animal heads and tails, yet you've NEVER heard anyone complain about THAT. Hell, there's a Minotaur/Centaur/Satyr thread on /m/ that is getting good reviews, even though everything on there is NOTHING BUT humans with animal bits slapped on them. So what singles Furronika out? Really, what about Furronika's art singles it out for ridicule and hatred? It's ironic, since Furronika's primary source of yiffy art is Satyrs, Centaurs, and Minotaurs (and I bet, if any of THEM were posted up on the aforementioned thread, people will STILL complain that it's shit).
First, as a fan of Furronika, I WILL admit that I have some gripes about the artist's style (like how pathetically thin and pencil-like his/her cock designs are), but the overall body design isn't one of them; the heads don't look slapped on by any stretch of the imagination, and in fact look like s/he tried to integrate them as best s/he could into the overal body design to look more natural. Another (recent) complaint I was given was that Furronika's stuff was too "muscular"; it IS true that s/he doesn't draw many "boi-ish" or petite men and women, but they are NOWHERE NEAR as muscular as they could've been; I've seen hyper-muscle pics where the fur looks like he's wearing a muscle suit inflated to its max with helium. Furronika's guys, though, looks to be about on par with your averagely-built model or your stereotypical action movie "working man" hero; buff, to be sure, but more toned than Bane-like.
Seriously, I don't understand why there's so much hate on here for Furronika; to me, the more people bitch about it, the more it seems like they're just doing it because it's the "cool" thing to do on here. So help me out here; what's with all of the negativity? Is there ANYONE on here that actually LIKES Furronika's stuff? And if you don't like her stuff, why don't you put her on the DNP list, so that you won't HAVE to look at it anymore?
