The feline's grace by FlashW The feline's grace by FlashW
In this work I tryed to show anthro more animal like. To make cat more graceful just to show that anthro can be with animal's qualities. Because many don't like furry, I don't like some furry ideas too, but I love anthro, that are close to nature. Just like werewolves. Or historikal theme, like ancient egyptian gods. I think anthro can be interesting. ^_^

The feline's grace by FlashW is a beautiful, inspiring piece that throws you right into the delicate nature and environment this character is relaxing within. Lovely detail and beautiful use of colors and highlights. The warm palette compliments this entire piece! ( Featured by KovoWolf )

 Just curious, but when you do digital work do you do it all digitally or do you scan a pencil or colored drawing in and work on it digitally? Awesome work by the way!

i completely agree with your comment, and the first thing i loved about this was how -perfectly- for my taste her feline and human anatomy were blended-- more a 70-30 feline to hominid. love it!

This is just amazing! I can't believe the detail work!! just a questions though, do you use a computer program to draw them? or do you actually draw them? This is amazing, I wish I could draw like this!! :D

I love the detail in the work especially on the fur and the leaves of the surrounding plants. I just can't guess the species though. It this a mix of a bunch of cats or just one?

what's the difference between an anthro and a furry or do I not want to know?

Furry is basically claiming a fursona, drawing a anthromorphic animal form or even quad form to represent yourself or have others draw your character for you. Much like people do with "Persona" but with animal like qualities much like Bugs Bunny.
I enjoy doing so because I cant draw humans and I do adore animals, so why not?

Anthro artists dont have a "fursona" to represent themselves ^^ Its fun.

It shouldnt, its no different than anything else.
There is some fetish's to it and they are popular
But in that aspect a person in a furry suit is no different than a person in a sexy cop costume. 
I dont understand why it is, the only explanation I can think of is ignorant people desperate to be hateful.

I think the difference is admiring the form from a distance, or actually putting on a bulky suit.

A furry wears a suit, goes to furry conventions, etc.

If someone likes anthro, they don't often put on a suit & head to a furry convention.

That's all I'm saying I think the difference is. I'm not an expert in furry vs anthros. :P

Thats not true
I dont suit but I claim the title

I could have said a metaphorical suit. But I think it's still accurate. Someone who likes anthros just for that, isn't a furry. Someone who dresses up or idealizes themselves as an animal (fursona) would be a furry. :)
