This is my first reaction to some anti-social douche who dares to call me or any werewolf a furry. :evileyes:

NOTE: This is NOT furry-hate art! I'm okay with furries, their conventions are cool, I just don't like people that try to ruin the fun by either calling them all 'yiffers' and 'fur-fags' or actually harming the people wearing the costumes by punching them, kicking them or ganging up on them with their sick mates (the chavvie guy with zits in this picture is my representation of the type of anti-social haters I've seen at many conventions with people in costumes, it's that bad where I live that the security even puts a ban on anyone wearing hoodies with baseball caps and scruffy trainers, and that's the truth). And sadly because people in mascot-like costumes aren't supposed to fight back (most can't because it'd damage their costume); it makes the bullying from jerks even worse.

But what I REALLY hate, is when people call werewolves furries. :facepalm: I mean, COME ON! Since when are furries scary and used in horror movies to chew people to bits? Anyone who calls a werewolf a furry is obviously somebody who doesn't know crap about the furry sub-culture or lycanthropy. Seriously, if you call a werewolf a furry; that means you would be calling all of the greatest werewolves from Van Helsing, Dog Soldiers, Bad Moon, American Werewolf 1 & 2, Being Human, Teen Wolf (the remake tv series), The Howling series and the Underworld trilogy furries too...and that's quite an insult to all those hard-working werewolf-designers and animators who made the werewolves for those great movies and tv shows.

So in conclusion, I shall give you all this very helpful advice: never, and I mean NEVER say a werewolf belongs in the 'furry world' because it doesn't. It belongs in horror media and real mythology, and trust me; if you ever confuse a werewolf for a furry at a horror festival, movie/comic/anime/manga convention, whitby goth weekend event, or worse at a haunted house attraction such as the famous Verdun Manor at Thrillvania [link] ...:censored: well, lets just say that they'd be some consequences that would make you seriously regret it, since you'd probably offend a hell of a lot of were-fans, werewolf-artists and werewolf-costumers. So please for your own sakes; heed this advice, for it will save you a lot of grief.


I also made a line-art of this picture too: [link]

BAHAHA this is great! Not sure how I missed this last time. Also, I have recently learned that what we make are actually considered rarsuits, not fursuits, so they would be technically incorrect in calling you a furry regardless. Rarsuits are scary/monster fur based creature costumes. Not cute=not furry

Yea I hadn't either. It is kinda nice not to have to call my wolf a fursuit though. It didnt feel right to put him in the same category as toony husky dogs. No offense to them, I love fursuits, but the styles are so different that makes more sense to have a subgenre.

Since trolls like this guy :iconthefreebornfanatic: started pretending to be furries and or 'true werewolf lovers' spamming every werewolf artist who points out the fact that furry and werewolf are two completely different things. Seriously he's been harrassing werewolf-artists (especially the ones in :iconwerewolf-horror: group) and embarrassing real furries for ages, yet for some reason DA staff have lifted his permanent ban despite the fact that a bunch of people who reported him had all the evidence needed to prove him guilty of harrassing a high number of people not just spamming, and for evading bans and blocks by having multiple acounts.

Plus aside from the trolls, it really does get annoying when people mistake wolf fursuiters for werewolves, it just goes to show that they don't know the difference between an anthropomorphic cartoony wolf and a terrifying human/wolf hybrid monster. This is what Twilight, CSI, and newer and more pussy-fied generations of halloween have done to the concept of werewolves and other great monsters of what is supposed to be the horror genre; ruined it.

Seriously, he is a troll; he's spammed other people's pages not his own, his biggest offense was on this [link] where he spammed each and every person who agreed with the stamp's maker (all of his messages are hidden because they were that foul in language as well as attitude). His Journal was an attack, not an arguement, :icontherealnightspirit: blocked him so he 'continued' his verbal attack on her through his journal. He was so butt-hurt that he went as far as posting his 'point' to her on his journal because he couldn't get past her block.

A furry is an anthropomorphic drawing. This is therefore a furry.

Farumir doesn't draw Furries. What she does draw, however, are Horror creatures, as is evident by the claws and usual blood dripping from them and the teeth. The only time she draws anything that isn't horror related is to change up her gallery a bit.


Therefore, your argument is invalid.

That's like saying all drawings of werewolves are all furries which they aren't, and I don't draw furries I only draw werewolves unless I'm drawing a furry for a friend or for a commissioner. This is a werewolf.

Furries are cartoon-style anthropomorphic animals (e.g. wears non-ripped clothes, has no fangs or claws, big goo-goo eyes, big smiley face, ridiculous fur colors like pink or bright blue with flower patterns which no real animal has, leads total human life with no animal-behaviour whatsoever etc).
Werewolves (traditional werewolves not the 'tribal' werewolves with 'soft eyes' that swarm DA) are gory horror-style wolf and human hybrids, some don't even look like werewolves such as the Wolfman and the first underworld movie for example. Therefore werewolves aren't furries.

AND furries are not used in horror movies. Werewolves are.

Hey, um...aren't "furries" anthro characters that happen to be of the variety that have fur? That's the definition I've always used. I don't see why a werewolf being classified as a "furry" would be a bad thing either. A werewolf is a guy who transforms into a big, powerful, furry monster...sounds pretty damn cool to me.

Farumir Featured By Owner Apr 19, 2013   General Artist
No, 'Furry' is the fandom-name for cartoony (like looney tunes and disney etc) anthropomorphic animals. Furries have reptile 'fursonas' too most notibly dragons and dinosaurs. The name 'Furry' isn't used to describe an anthro that has fur, it's used to refer to the costumes used to bring the fursona to life; every 'Furry' costume is made of fake-fur (or real fur in some artists' cases), you won't find Furries dressed in leather-costumes unless they're yiffers at a bondage-fetish convention or Furries wearing big latex body-suits, and all-spandex suits are very rare in Furries.

If the furry fandom's name was meant to refer to anything and everything with fur, then that would be just plain ridiculous because that would make EVERYTHING a part of the Furry fandom; from real pets to people just wearing fur-coats. Everything's got it's own fandom; Trekkies, Bronies (yes they are their own fandom now), Zombie-crowds, mermaid-impersonators, pretend 'secret agents', robot-people, fanpires (people who pretend or actually believe they're vampires), Wizzards & witches (not real witches like wiccans though), 'Middle Earth' dwellers, and of course Werewolf-fans/roleplayers (Werewolf Apocalypse is a well-known group of werewolf-roleplayers), the list of different fandoms is endless. There's got to be limits to each of them or else a fandom wouldn't be a fandom.

Besides, that last part of your comment is inaccurate; not all werewolves are covered in fur, in fact all of the traditional werewolves from horror movies and TV shows (NOT the ones on DA as a majority of them all look the same) are either bald or just have really hairy skin like a very butch man or ape. Only exceptions are Van Helsing, Ginger Snaps 2, Cursed, American Werewolf in London, Never Cry Werewolf, The Boy who Cried Werewolf, Bad Moon (but even then it just looked really hair not fur-covered) and The Howling 1 & 2 & 3. And no the 'wolves' in the Twilight Saga are NOT werewolves, they're just shape-shifters as stated in the book.

I could go on and on.

That's one of the big differences between a real werewolf and just an anthro or furry; werewolves are monsters that are neither all that wolf looking or all that human looking, they're always scary even in kids cartoons (well, scary to little kids anyway), and used in horror movies/TV shows to kill people in a very bloody fashion. If it's not monstrous-looking and soaked in blood at some point, then it's not a werewolf, and you certainly don't get bright pink or rainbow colored werewolves like you do with furries.

Farumir Featured By Owner Apr 19, 2013   General Artist
Ha, no work involved; the proof of the difference between the two is everywhere. You won't find a bloodied werewolf dripping saliva (I know how to make one of those for a mask, a 'salivating' function) at a furry convention, a horror movie convention yes but not a furry one, especially not a highly detailed werewolf since hair-punching (the technique used to create realistic 'hairy skin' on monsters) takes way longer than just sewing up a fursuit or gluing fur directly onto spandex. The amount of work put into a monster is also a big difference from furries, sure there are a few brilliant furry and anthro costumers such as Qarrezel and Monoyasha and TwistedTerrace, but a majority of furries are just average and below in the crafts-skills' department.

You must be new at art, if you think all 'furries' are neon coloured, or that none are drawn realistically...Or that none can have ripped clothing.

Your ignorance is a little sad.

Werewolves are furries, just like anthropomorphic dragons, cats, dogs or tigers are.

You speak the same words as :iconthefreebornfanatic: (who got banned for harrassing several werewolf groups and good artists with multiple accounts) And yes, all furries ARE cartoony regardless of coloring and clothing, realistic humanoid are nicknamed anthros (dunno why though) and scary humanoid animals that are more animal than human in behaviour and looks are monsters (traditional werewolves fall in the monsters' catergory). Oh and one very, very big and important difference between furries and were-creatures/monsters is: Furries DON'T have human forms, they don't shape-shift from animal to human and vice versa. And please don't use the whole 'but the diversity in the furry fandom is huge' line, because any real furry will tell you the same that shape-shifting into a human is not something furry characters do, it's just simply not their thing.

I will say the same thing I said and many others said to :iconthefreebornfanatic:; if you are so confident in your belief that werewolves are furries; then please provide your evidence that they are (if any).

I laugh at your ignorance because you judge without checking; I've been an artist and a DA member much longer than you have, and your artwork is amazing, very surreal...too bad you've just lost my respect for you as an artist by insulting me.

And I'm in university now studying animation and special effects for TV. Fine art was never my thing, and all the money for an artist is in the TV business these days.
If you stop judging by comments and actually LOOK at my gallery as I have done yours, you'll see that I don't just draw, I use all kinds of media from CG stuff to nic-naks and props etc.

Geez, only trying to be nice, do you call everyone who's academic sad?

True and I respect that ^^, but I have four reasons why I hate it: 1) sparkling vampires are ridiculous (they don't even have fangs in the movie or you never see their teeth at least), 2) the werewolf design is a rip-off of Wolf Lake and Company of Wolves and Blood & Chocolate only made into CGI giants with a faster TF scene (way too fast that it's boring, they might as well have done the Dog Soldiers trick and not bothered to show any TF scene at all), 3) the story-line's not even original, it's just romeo & juliet with vamps and wolves tossed in and minus the lovers' suicide...and 4) most of all, the OTT fans. The fans that flip out at the mere mention of someone not liking Twilight and starting trolling anti-fans like crazy, and say they won't ever get boyfriends/girlfriends unless they're Edward or Jacob or somebody that sparkles with pointy teeth. I think even the sane and good fans like yourself can understand why anti-fans like me hate the OOT twi-fans most of all (even Meyer said she didn't like the OTT fans in her interview). :facepalm:

Yeah, I completely understand what you're saying. One of my best friends (who I've known for 16 years) hates twilight, because, in her opinion, it doesn't have a lot of action in it. But to fight over that with a slight chance it might ruin our friendship is completely ridiculous. And I am almost positive that a lot of girls (because it's mostly girls who like twilight)hve gone through that. I am definitely not that girl that screams the air out of her lungs at the mention of Edward's name =_= or Jacob's. I like the movie(s) because it doesn't really matter to me how the werewolves look like. There's only so little ways to create an actual werewolf. That's also why I can't really say it's a rip off, because sooner or later, wolves in different movies could resemble one another. But again, that is just the way I see it :) And I have to agree with you with another thing you mentioned: The sparkling vampires :/ It may be something entirely different, but it's still....stupid =_= And about the ''action'' my friend told me about: I don't ALWAYS need action in a movie to enjoy one. At least I'm glad we understand and respect each other ;)

She's right, it doesn't have any action at all in it (and for a human-sized vampire to be able to mortally wound a wolf the size of a truck with jaws that can *quote* break marble is just ridiculously logic-defying). Actually there are tons of ways to make a werewolf, horror movies from different directors and producers and even on DA are living proof of that, all Twilight wolves are; are just CGI wolves. No creativity or originality whatsoever. Plus so far, apart from DA's wolfaboo-hippy 'tribal' werewolf fandom and crappy shows like Wolf Lake, True Blood, Vampire Diaries and Blood & Chocolate, no werewolf has ever looked the same as another werewolf unless they came from the same director (e.g. the werewolf in Red Riding Hood looks like the Twilight wolf because it was made by the same Director of Twilight) or were made by the same animators/costumers/animatronics' specialists. And yes the sparkling vampire was new, but stupid, incredibly stupid. And those are the reasons why I hate the twilight series.

I don't mind that other people like it, as you said you have your different opinions on the series and I have mine, but it's when people start trying to convince me to think it's super awesome or start harrassing me because I hate it; that I get majorly pissed off.
