Size difference in anthros
« on: Today at 08:29:18 am »
How do you think size differences in anthros would work? Would it be more like human heights, with smaller animals generally being shorter, but not too much smaller? Would it work like Zootopia, where the animals are basically the size they would be if their feral ancestors stood bipedal? Or would it work like fantastic Mr. Fox, where mouse is definitely smaller, but goes up to at least Mr. Fox's knees?
I'd love to hear your opinion!

I've never thought about it, I guess I just assume full-on anthros would just have typical human height variation. Anything more drastic would be for the more feral side of things (like bipedal animals as opposed to human/animal hybrids) if that makes sense  :fox-:P:

Well i have no idea how it would be in real life but the way i draw that kinda stuff is like a middle ground,a good example is when i draw anthro insects they are smaller than all the other animals but they are not the SUPER tiny size like irl that counts for smol animals too but way less drastic

As someone whose fursonas are both small animals, I lean more toward the idea of just regular human height. I like the factor that 'normal size' would play a role; for example, an elephant would be noticeably larger than a mouse, but not nearly as prominent as their feral counterparts.

Most artists I know draw furries within the same height variation as humans. Maybe with the exception of animals like mice being slightly smaller, and animals like elephants being larger (obviously). I've kind of wanted to see more furries draw anthropomorphic animal characters closer to the animals they're based off of as well as in comparison to other species.



Kind of like Zootopia. It would actually be pretty cool if more furries drew that way. It's much more visually distinctive.

I've always pictured them closer to human height, they're of course be variation like humans with species playing a role in this but in general they'd be similar

I love the idea zootopia did as well tho

I basically picture all of my characters as similar to Zootopia, because Zootopia is what I based most of my art styles off of. If I drew my characters as more human I would also picture them with less height difference probably.
