Do these, count as that? (A question)
« on: January 24, 2019, 03:52:56 PM »
Alright, confusing title to draw people in? Check
Probably a stupid question but asking regardless? Check
Ok, so here's my question.

If I was to take a creature/monster from a game that isn't human, and make it human/anthro, would that be alright here? I would put what animal they're based on in the title, and then leave a link to an image of what they're based on.

I was thinking of doing a Fanfic based on a creature from Monster Hunter, but making them human/humanoid/anthro, so I was just unsure on how it would be classed as, and if it would even be allowed on the site.

Ah, I can see what you want. Hm, I could see the appeal, though it changes the character far from usual, but only in form really. Whether or not that's actually legal/allowed, you'd have to ask an admin. Or do it anyway XD
I try to do my best, even if I'm not the best.

That's true
I just want to check first incase it's something prohibited that I can't post, the go through the work of writing to just be told-
"Sorry, can't be doing that here" or something xD

It would be totally fine.  An anthro is an anthro no matter what creature it's based on.  And anthro is furry.

It would also be unambiguously fine to post content about a Monster Hunter creature or other monster, in non-anthro form, as long as it was depicted with approximately human-level intelligence (sapience).  That class of character is commonly called "feral".  And feral is furry.
(Most modern four-legged dragons fit here, for instance.)

A creature with clearly sub-human intelligence ("non-sapient") is more of a gray area.  But as long as nothing sapient is engaging sexually with the non-sapient, I wouldn't expect objections.


Also, in the particular case of Monster Hunter, there's already oodles of specific prior art placing those creatures in the furry fandom (at least when depicted as sapient).  Reference: [NSFW] https://e621.net/post/index?tags=monster_hunter [NSFW].

Ahh.
Yeah, that's what I was kinda aiming for. They would be as intelligent as normal humans, but have the appearance of human-esque monsters like those images.
Maybe a bit safer though, to start off xD
Something like this, maybe- https://www.kisspng.com/png-monster-hunter-world-monster-hunter-tri-monster-hu-3746617/preview.html

Yeah, in retrospect I probably should've linked to: https://e621.net/post/index?tags=monster_hunter%20rating:safe

XD

That's perfectly fine, I just wanted to confirm things before I started writing xD
I somewhat have an idea in mind, but trying to balance everything in my life is a real hassle.
Thanks, however  :3
