I want to make a comic in the vain of Redwall and Mouse Guard kind of stuff, I like the mice but I like many animals like gorillas and badgers, and the idea of them as different cultures and warriors and such sounds cool to me.
Making them stand on their back legs and stand up and wear clothes. Does this make it furry-tastic? I'd rather not go that route but I'm not sure what fits in that territory if like, FIffle Goes West or Battle Beasts or Mouse Guard again is basically furry? I ask mostly because, not trying to offend furries but I'd rather not be associated so heavily with that because I'm not a fan. I grew up reading ranger ricks and animal fact books there is a fascination with the cool animals that roam earth and I'd like to install that into something I work on.
Am I simply asking for to much? Am I on a fools errand to try and represent animals with human qualities as something cool? Should I just go draw people agian?
Also I wasn't sure if there was a board to talk about art, so I put this here, hopefully that's okay.
