As an artist, I've decided to change my main wolf "character" that I draw. And all of my previous characters who walked on all fours for that matter. Now I feel that I want to draw my next one on two's. I'm getting pulled into the "furry" fandom (don't worry, I'm not sexually attracted to them, I just think I can do more with a human-like structure drawing wise). The only problem is that:
1. My best friend, who taught me how to draw, is very critical of my art, and is strongly against the furry fandom.
2. My boyfriend might think that I do have a sexual attraction to them, and feel disturbed with my art.
3. I'm embarrassed with myself, and what my family might think. I show my family lots of my art, but they might not be so supportive when they see these bipedal animals that are strongly linked with sexual actions. I am also slightly disgusted with myself for wanting to draw my fursona(s) like this, and for being a furry, even if it's non-sexually. Any ideas on what I should do? *Also HUGE thanks to anyone who reads this and has a way to help!
