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!

I found this terrific Brazilian artist and animator through Pinterest. He has a classic “Disney style” look and creates characters who are fluid and full of life. I haven’t found if he has galleries anywhere other than Facebook, alas, so if anyone knows of any, please let us know!

Love the atmosphere and sense of mystery about this piece. Is this cat infiltrating some secret organization? Hiding from someone? They’ve got a mighty mischievous twinkle in their eye…

As much as I love the classic toony “Disney/WB Animation Style” school of furry art, I am always blown away by well-done painterly style work such as this one. I can see this cat standing beside– or against– Mark E. Rogers’ Samurai Cat among a shower of cherry blossoms as a wooden block ticks in the distance…
