Art Spot: Podloga by Fukari

Back in the Yerf! days, one of the recurring issues that people loved to talk about at length was that so much of furry art didn’t show anyone actually doing anything. And twenty(!?) years later, it’s still a thing. People want portraits of their fursonas, and that’s fine, but for me, the best furry art is about catching a moment, and expressing the character through that moment, and this piece really shines at it. Her happy grin and his one open eye, the fully-realized background, even the shoes tossed in the corner really bring you into the scene and give you a sense of these two BFFs and what they’re like.

Stellar work!

Every year is the first year for someone! AnthroCon is only a month away, and now is a good time to check out Inkblitzer’s excellent “Road to AnthroCon” series:

You might also want to check out When Cons Go Bad: Dealing With a Disappointing Convention, because it happens from time to time.

There are a ton of great furry conventions out there; here at ProudToBeAFurry.org we tend to focus on AnthroCon or Midwest Furfest because they are two of the largest and the ones we tend to get to the most often.

We’ve got more articles on the way, including post-con depression (PCD) and how to get through it, ways to find and make friends at conventions, and more. Stay tuned!
