General Chatter / Re: Why Furry Characters Sneezing vs Human Sneezing?
« on: April 10, 2022, 07:10:29 PM »
A lot of it for me is variety.  There's only so much you can do with a human nose, animals have a lot more in terms of styles to mess around with.  Besides, there's also a lot more variety available in furry character designs with all the different species available whereas with humans you don't have too many tricks beyond skin color, hairstyle and color, maybe tattoos?

Welcome!  Looking forward to seeing you around.

This was great!  And I'm not even much of an elephant fan usually.

Thank you very much for sharing!

Cute!   ;D

It's not your opinion that PPL, yasl, and I are objecting to, it's the way in which you express it. You could do without the snideness and condescension.  If you think that makes us thin-skinned SJWs who can't take the slightest hint of criticism without running off crying to our safe spaces, that's your opinion too.  I would not consider that an accurate characterization, however.  Of course, I doubt you'll listen on that front. 

Likewise, rather than trying to attack the exact wording that someone uses at times of emotion like these, it's more important to consider why they might be feeling the way they do, and looking closer at where their emotions may be coming from. There's more to words than the words themselves.

You should take your own advice rather than assuming that everything we say comes from a bubble of hurt fee-fees.  Do note that I have not been trying to force the art down your throat and demand that you like it.  I'm not offended that you don't, despite what you seem to think.  For all your gripes about bubbles, you seem very comfortable in your own.  Maybe if you crawled out from underneath your blanket of smug moral superiority you might see that your attitude has been a major factor in driving people away from the site.  But that would require a modicum of self-awareness and reflection, and I doubt you can bring yourself to do find any of either within yourself.  I've been offering this same advice to you for upwards of a year now, sometimes more subtly, sometimes more bluntly.  And it's always been because I want to help you and help the site.  But you've never listened before, so I don't expect you to now. 

Do you remember complaining to me that nobody talks to you anymore?  I remember hearing that many times, where you thanked me for being one of the only ones who still did.  So let me be clear now:  this smug attitude I've been mentioning all this time is a major factor in you being lonely.  Strangely, people don't want to interact with someone who never apologizes for upsetting anyone, always thinks that they're right and perfect, and plays victim and martyr when they're challenged on it.  I consider myself a patient and tactful person, but you have finally succeeded in running me out of my supply of both.  Congratulations. 

But no, you're going to interpret this as an unjust, unfair personal attack from a disgruntled screeching harpy.  Oh, the humanity!  Oh, the woe!  You'll respond with another snide reply about how I'm an SJW who can't handle a dissenting opinion.  That is not true.  What I can't handle are smug people with no self-awareness.  You call us SJWs?  Let me fill you in on a secret.  The thing most people hate about SJWs isn't their politics, it's their smug sense of moral superiority and constant playing of the victim card instead of conceding to a debate.  You accuse us of being SJWs, but you're the one using their tactics of "everything I do is 100% right, apologizing is weakness, and any criticisms are unfair and intolerant."

Believe whatever you want, but don't blame us when your bad attitude causes the site to continue hemorrhaging users whose patience for your behavior is far less than mine. 

I dare you to call this SJW thinking, or say that I'm just being emotional, or ban me for daring to challenge you.

As we say in the FOSS community: patches welcome...

Personally, I don't feel there's much difference between now and 5 years ago.  There was a bit of a rush when the site was new, and it has gradually cooled down since.

I think the "artists doing things these days" bit was very inartfully put, and I don't think I really get the sentiment.  Not every artist is Kenket (or whoever), but I've never felt the need to say "oh, SoAndSo, your art's not quite to my particular taste; no pressure, but if you want to get better at art, try being more like Kenket".

I know that's an inaccurately grim reading, and doesn't reflect what was actually meant.  But I do feel a lot more care could be taken here, and sometimes care means eliding statements that could be taken poorly, not merely couching them.  This thread is not very becoming.  :-/

A lot of this.  But just to add my own two cents . . .

As the person responsible for commissioning most of those "close to interesting" pieces, I feel like I have a stake in this too.  I've mostly been getting those because they're cheap and good value. 

Throwing shade at PPL specifically seems rather uncalled for.  If you don't like it, fine.  I'm not asking you to lie and say that you do.  But in response to the initial post you could have just said something like "yeah, there isn't as much content as there used to be, and what there is is less to my liking compared with what we used to get."  You know, without calling out anyone in particular.  You keep falling back on "I'm old and picky" as a defense; my response is that if you don't have anything nice to say you don't have to say anything at all. 

And I know you're going to accuse me of stifling criticism, but that's not my goal.  If an artist asks you for criticism you should of course provide it honestly.  But when someone's making an observation of the lack of new content, it's really not your place to throw barbs at anyone's work in your response, especially when they aren't there, and especially in such a condescending way. 

(Accusations of white knighting incoming in 3 . . . 2 . . . 1 . . .)

I still prefer the female stuff though.   ;)  But this is really good!

Love this cute wyvern  ;D.

Thank you very much!  I love her too.   :)

Another little sketchpiece from pollenpepperlover.

Here's Lillith wyvern letting out one of her typical messy, powerful sneezes, and losing her modesty in the process!  She has a venomous bite, hence the green spray . . . it'll sting if it gets in your eyes, but you won't go blind, at least.  Best to bless her from a safe distance!  And be nice, she's sensitive about the sneezing and the venom spray and all that. 

There isn't an obvious reason for the sneezin' here, but I like to think she's catching a cold.   ;)

Yes, welcome!  Hope you have a good time here. 

I'm much more of a sneeze guy, but I'm not opposed to nose-blowing and it can be fun!   ;)

Another piece by pollenpepperlover.  Strange species this time. 

I saw a piece of a cute pangolin on FA and made one of my own!  Bernadette is trying to dust but she can't seem to stop sneezing . . .

These are all great!  I think the dog is my favorite.
