Ideas: The "Anthro" Sporepedia
« on: January 18, 2010, 01:26:47 pm »
Anybody know about the Ginjika Pokedex on DeviantArt? Well, this is the same concept, only with our creatures. I'm drawing a Pentekonterus one as I type. anyway, the purpose is to have a gallery of... well, people in outfits that represent our RP creatures. Hope to see your submissions soon!

WTF.

Like, seriously, WTF? Gijinka? You actually thought that people here would like that art? What were you thinking?

Not a chance.

...Really, Gijinka?! I mean, sure, *BehindtG likes it, but she's Finnish, and those who hail from Finland can do whatever they want.

It's not a joke, though they do seem to be a little harsh. I find nothing wrong with the concept. A little eccentric, yes, but what new idea isn't?

And you guys, stop making it sound like he just proposed Spore hentai. It's not that bad an idea. (The Ginjika creatures, that is, not the Spore hentai)

What my problem is is that Gijinka can only be pulled off by a very good artist. There is no way that me or UFO King are posting Gijinka, because that would just embarrass us. And I am very afraid that Dr.Octagonapus will post a Gijinka drawing. His art is nowhere near good enough for Gijinka. Neither is mine. If I tried drawing that...no.

Protip: When on the internet, unless it's a furry forum; never use the term anthro.

No, I'm pretty sure it won't.

I won't be partaking in this, if you actually decide to go through with it.

Maybe all the old veterans are gone now, but back in the old days we were pretty anti-furry. It has been this long and have kept it that way for years.

But I still think we need to keep it that way. I know it's something some people are passionate about, but I would totally disown everything we made this place to be if you guys took that direction. This isn't about my narrow hatred of an eccentric art style, it's about originality.

I hardly consider anthro to be good creature design.

I'm with OmegaTripod on this one.  While I have nothing against the art style and in fact find some personifications of certain things to be an interesting concept, I severley doubt that Octagonapus can pull off anything decent, though I would not mind being proven wrong on this point.

If this just an interpretation, then I have no problem. But I won't jump on the bandwagon.

Define what you mean by "Just an interpretation".  I find your statement somewhat confusing.

Well, like you said, they are personifications. Not the actual creature itself.
