I draw both \(ouo)/ I don't usually post anthro on here, though.
I find anthro a good practice for me in human anatomy, and animal features, but I draw feral much more because yes :la:

To be honest, I'm more of a feral person, but actually, I really-really like characters with a slightly anthropomorphic look, like...they are animals, but they are walking on two legs, wearing human clothes, etc. Considering the more human anatomy characters named anthros...dunno, they rarely appeal to me. :shrug:

Both are fine, but I strongly prefer feral. :3
Although anthro is okay, it's still odd to imagine a creature as a human. o-o

I like them both, but I prefer Feral, of course. Oddly enough, I like to mix Feral and Anthro together. In other words, normal animals standing on two legs, not having any human-ish shapes.

I enjoy both. Feral is mostly cute while anthro is more "sexy". It depends on how it's drawn too.
And I should drawn both feral and anthro more :XD:

It depends on the situation for me, however I enjoy both. c:
Since different people have different styles of doing each, though, I may like some peoples' ferals more than their anthros, and I may like other peoples' anthros more than their ferals (or I may not like their art at all stupid Fur Affinity).

Yeah, I see. Some people draw really good anthros in my opinion, *Shadow-Wolf for example :)

I've been drawing since around second grade, and I've come a long way since then, but clearly I've got a lot more to learn before I'm anywhere near that good. >w<"

The majority of my art is quad anthro.

Anthro just means giving human qualities to animals (ie speech, expressions, etc) and isn't limited to standing on two legs. So I prefer when the animals still stand on four legs but act more like humans.

Should've made that clearer, I really meant anthro as in human-like body. xP I know anthro isn't limited to that, I should explain my terms better but hjfjn

I like both.
Anthros have a bit more 'flexibility' since they don't actually exist. You can you know, play around with anatomy and stuff. I personal prefer feral for my own drawings since it is easier for me, however anthros are pretty cool too.

It's not that I don't like anthros but I draw because I like animals in the first place, so I just have no special interest in them xP

I always prefer feral. Anthro doesn't feel natural for me to draw and I just don't feel the need to make my characters anthro. Not that I hate it but it's just not my thing.
