Because I'm sure y'all do nothing but wait for me to upload something :p
I started coloring a drawing of Brooke and something, don't know what, got on it somehow and none of my chalks would stick and well long story short, there's a hole in the drawing now. So yeah, delays but I'm still alive.
Why do I find myself making the same mistakes over and over again? Especially after I've had a run of bad luck on here?
Soon as I saw the Eclipse feature on my page my first thought was "Great. All aboard the bitching train."
And here's what you're gonna see: 'I'm leaving the site!' 'You don't listen to the community!" 'I'm starting a petition!'

People. READ! It's only gone out to more people on the waiting list and hasn't been officially rolled out yet. Yes it needs work, they're admitting that. But God give it a chance because it does have a lot of nice features.
You need to give them helpful comments, don't sit and make threats. It's not helping anything.
Finally feeling normal though still not fully recovered. Having problems with motivation and energy but I should have something tomorrow night to upload, it's the promised sexy of Tamala.
I don't know what's worse. Not having any ideas or having too many ideas. Ugh.
Do you really want to know?
 Tigers, lions, foxes the furry side they are. Easily they flow, quick to join you in a drawing. If once you start down the furry path, forever will it dominate your destiny, consume you it will. Just as it did MiGpilot.


In all seriousness, it would seem that the question was never fully answered and I had to really think back because it wasn't an overnight decision.

To start with, anthro characters were never anything strange to me. I grew up playing Star Fox and watching the Disney afternoon. Yes I'm that freakin' old. When I very first starting drawing nekomimi's around 2008, some of them had crudely drawn fur on them. Even back in 2014 the idea of an anthro chracter was being kicked around but was dismissed. I didn't think I had enough talent for it.

Anyway back around spring to late summer of 2016 I went through a something of a hard time on here. Without going into too many details, the whole affair left me very shaken and questioning my abilities as an artist wondering if I was capable of doing more or was I merely a one trick pony? On top of that it seemed that nekomimi's, catgirls whatever you call them just weren't that fun anymore, I had been drawing them for 3 years nonstop after all.

Now, for those of you who wondered if a certain anthro tigress from a certain webcomic was responsible for the change that was to come you'd be absolutely right. However it was neither TwoKinds nor one of it's main protagonists Flora. Rather it was a webcomic from the Katbox called Caribbean Blue where a manga styled tigress named Tina was prominently featured. Upon seeing that I really begin considering trying my hand at a humanoid, manga style feline lady. However there was a lot going on in my life at the time, none of it good. I won't bore you with the details but needless to say it was a huge distraction.

When the dust finally settled some months later in winter of 2017 I was able to concentrate on art more. However the kemonomimi situation was getting worse. Yeah there was some good ideas but they were few and far between and it seemed like I really had to do a super good job to get noticed. And it was becoming too easy, the challenge, the thrill was gone. It was at this time that alot of anthro art began popping up in the groups I was in at the time. It slowly began to tempt me. Still I was reluctant. "I'd have to order more pastels and I could lose a lot of friends and have to make anthro friends. Besides, I'd have to re-learn a lot of things" where just a few refrains. This went on for a month or two. But then the thought occurred that it'd be a great way to show off what I could do. I remember telling  myself "alright alright I'll think about it!"

Wasn't until I was getting some pastel paper one day that I came across a book about drawing anthropomorphic characters. I didn't buy it, just thumbed through it. I realized while yes there'd be some learning involved it was nothing that practice wouldn't fix. So the decision was finally made and here was the result: Fishing for a Compliment by MiGpilot

It was nerve racking. I fully expected to get nothing but negative comments ("OMG MiG! You're a furry now?! I don't like you anymore!") Instead the exact opposite happened, everyone seemed really impressed. And so it grew from there.


So yeah that's how it happened, at least as best as I recall.
