Oh my goodness! This is really adorable! I love their happy expressions and how they're so entwined in one another. My eyes are immediately drawn to her pink toenails. It's pretty cute to see canine nails painted.

Don't mean to be a prick, it's very lovely, but does someone wanna explain to me this type of art? I flat out just don't get it, specifically the subject matter being canines with a mix of human physiology. I see a lot of it on here.

Thanks,
Bailey

P.S. Extremely well done. Again, I'm not trying to be mean, just seeking to expand my understanding a tad.

I apologize for replying to your question twice, but I wanted to clarify something I said in my first response. I said that some people may create anthropomorphic art because they think it is cool. A better way for me to have worded this is that some may create anthropomorphic art because they appreciate and enjoy the aesthetic or just think the aesthetic is fun to depict. For some anthro artists, they may not even identify with the animals they are depicting themselves or others as, but they simply like the aesthetic. These kind of people might be more likely to create art for others or create anthropomorphic characters rather than depicting themselves as an anthropomorphic animal. I'd imagine that this might be the case for some cartoonists. I also noticed that in my description of possible anthropomorphic features I forgot to include the obvious example that you already mentioned which is the mixing of human physiology with animal physiology such as canines as shown in this work of art. A great example of an anthropomorphic creature from mythology that fits this description would be the Werewolf. Again, I apologize for replying to your query twice, but I wished to give you a thorough explanation. I hope it helped answer your question.
By the way, I applaud the manner in which you approached this question. Some people have very bad reactions to things they don't understand, and they end up automatically rejecting the things that they don't already understand. It is nice to see that you wish to expand your understanding on the subjects that you don't understand rather than reject them. The world needs more people like you.

Thank you to SciFi, Vermin, and Fallen for your answers. What all of you said makes sense to me. I feel now that the piece and the genre (if that label is appropriate) has more context to me. I both understand it and appreciate it now.

Many thanks,

I think the previous replies did a very good job of answering your question, but I would like to point out that an additional point about anthropomorphic art. I am not sure if you've noticed, but it is pretty much everywhere. Look at the animated films that Disney creates, and you'll realize that a very large proportion of them (at least half) feature anthropomorphic animals. If you look at other film companies (especially ones that make cartoons), you'll notice a similar pattern. I hadn't quite noticed this myself until I understood what constituted anthropomorphic art and realized that I liked it (or more like I realized that I have liked it for a while, but only later came to understand that what I liked was an actual art form category). This art form essentially encompasses any animals (or non-human such as inanimate objects) that are portrayed with human characteristics such as talking, having complex emotions, being able to express those emotions with human facial expressions (i.e. smiling), bipedal walking in a non-bipdal animal, etc. Animals are the most popular possibly since many people seem to have an affinity for animals and they are probably easier to identify with since they have basic emotions, but there are other examples that don't include animals such as Disney's Cars movie. Anthropomorphic art also goes beyond the realm of entertainment, and has been around for a very long time. For example, a look at Egyptian mythology (or perhaps any mythology at all), and you'll noticed that they are littered with countless examples of anthropomorphism, and as a result, art dating back centuries that depicts these mythologies features many examples of anthropomorphic creatures. For the example of Egyptian mythology, many of the Egyptian gods are depicted as being half human, half animal creatures. Another obvious example would be the the Sphinx. There's honestly too many examples for me to list here. Similar examples can be brought up for a lot mythologies such as Greek and even Native American mythology. One addendum that I would like to add to what vermin06 said is that it isn't always about relating to aspects of an animal that most closely fits a person. Sometimes people just think it looks cool, so they do it. Otherwise, I would say that the description that vermin06 gave you would be the best description that would pertain to this specific work of art that we are commenting under, but I simply wanted to point out that Anthropomorphic art isn't a new or rare occurrence. It is an art form that is featured all over our daily lives and our past, but many are simply unaware that it is an actual art form, and many don't realize it until they meet people that particularly like anthropomorphic art which are usually furries but not always since liking anthropomorphic art doesn't make someone a furry (although I know some might disagree on that point). I apologize for the length of explanation, and I hope our explanations have helped answer your question.

Essentially, anthro art is about the expression of one's inner "animal(s)". It's a way to relate to aspects of an animal they feel closest fits them, along with their human traits. Someone's caricature is often referred to as their, "Fursona". So, for example, someone who draws themselves as an anthropomorphised fox will say, "My fursona is a fox."

Often times you'll see spiritual art (such as what Goldenwolf makes [goldenwolfen.com]), or you'll see more cartoonish representations of anthropomorphism ("furry" art). There are also fetish type materials, though you don't see that as often here on DA as you do on sites like VCLart.net. Sometimes, people just like drawing humanoid animals and have no real particular reason as to why they do it. Centrally, there is a community that creates and appreciates this form of art, and that is also a big draw for fans of the furry/anthro groups.

It's varied in it's styles and views and reasons, but it's always recognizable. I guess it's just something you either like and do, or you don't like and don't do. The thing to "get" about it depends on who you're talking to, since the rhymes and reasons are varied for each person in the community.

It basically a more animal-like form of someone. Like... idk take it from an aboriginal point of view, more in touch with their animal side. Witch in some cases is called... furry(Furries), anthro, etc.

I was about to ask the same question, now without hating! Just plain curious, since the furry genre don't hit me the way it does to you.

Guess I have a more extreme way of looking at it, like, People wanna be furries? Cats with tits and Willie's, they draw romantic drawings, even intercourse. In my eyes that becomes animal...youknow, pron.
NOT hating, just wanna know what it's all about. Probably not the best place to discuss it.

And I agree with everyone, the drawing looks effin good.

Well it all depends on some people. YES! there is a huge amount of people who find furries attractive. It is how ever considerd to be beastilality (Spelt wrong i think). It's about being more in touch with your animal side. only to a... rather extreme level. Kinda in my eyes its as if being a werewolf only there a were-version of every animal. I personaly like the normal none X rated furry pics more.

Because there is nothing sexual happening, no female nipples showing, and no genitals showing.
