Anthro and Human Characters: My Thoughts

Journal Entry: Fri Jul 3, 2015, 1:44 PM
Skin by TMNT-Raph-fan

Because I've been feeling kind of bored lately, I would just like to talk about something that's been on my mind for quite some time now... As you can tell from checking out my art gallery here on DeviantArt, I happen to be a cartoon artist who absolutely loves to draw pictures involving anthropomorphic animal characters all the time, and I'm not usually able to draw many pictures involving human characters. The reason I feel like wanting to discuss this particular topic with all of my friends on here is because, to be completely honest, I don't really care for certain types of human characters as much as some people may realize. In fact, I'm actually starting to find most human characters who appear in cartoon shows, movies, video games, etc. that I'm able to enjoy to be rather dull and unappealing to me; Not to mention they're just too common in every form of media, and they're practically a 'dime a dozen' in my opinion.

Now I can understand that human characters are usually meant to be based on people in real life, which is quite easy to relate to (especially if it's a fictional character based on a famous celebrity or whatever), but I seem to have lost my interest in those kind of characters some time ago ever since I began focusing only on anthro animal characters. I guess the reason that I've stopped liking most human characters over the years is because I've never really been what others would probably refer to as a 'people person', especially since I happen to be an incredibly shy person in real life, and I don't really like talking to people face-to-face that much for some strange reason. I know this may sound kind of alarming to everyone when I say this, but I think I'm actually starting to hate human people altogether because everyone I try to socialize with in both real life and/or the internet tends to act kinda selfish and unsupporting towards me (especially whenever I'm trying to share something and/or participate in some kind of project that I just want to be a part of) unless they're just being nice and friendly, and I actually do try my best to be nice to everyone since I've never been a truly bad person in anyway at all.

And while I'm on the topic, I sometimes feel that anthro animals characters don't get as much appeal as they deserve when there is a TV show, movie, video game, etc. that involves those kind of characters. One perfect example would the Nintendo DS game "Solatorobo: Red The Hunter", in which most of the characters happen to be humanoid dogs and humanoid cats, and I actually find them to be much more appealing than just about all of the human characters that appeared in all other video game series that have come out such as "Mass Effect" and "Gears Of War". Even so, I still don't understand why some people don't like those kind of characters at all or that much, and they've always had a certain kind of charm to me for as long as I can remember. Speaking of which, I was actually able to check out a teaser trailer for the new Disney animated movie "Zootopia" when I was able to see "Inside Out" in theaters recently, and it was sure to please as well as interest me because of how much I really love anthro animal characters, especially if they're the kind of animals that are furry (but not hoofed, BTW), and I would also plan to go out and see the movie whenever it comes out in Spring 2016.

You're welcome as always, man. :D

sent an angel to watch over you last night but it came back.

I asked, "why?"

The angel said, "angels don't watch over angels."

Twenty one angels are IN your world.

Ten of them are sleeping, Ten are playing, one is reading this message.

Send this to ten friends including me.

I guess if I don't get it back I'm not one of them. As soon as you get five replies someone you love will quietly surprise you.

Please read, not joking. God has seen you struggling with something. God says it's over. A blessing is coming your way. If you believe in God send this message on. Please don't ignore it. You are being tested. God is going to fix two things BIG tonight in your favor. DROP everything and pass it on. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. Don't break this chain. Send this to 14 friends in 10 minutes. It's not that hard
