Your opinion on taurs?
« on: August 23, 2017, 12:59:36 pm »
I am pretty curious, since I myself am getting a foxtaur.
Do you like them or not?
And why?

If they're done right with cool designs and stuff then they're awesome, but sometimes people will make really awkward ones that just look silly.

'Taurs are pretty cool, but I very much agree with Dolly that they have to be done right for them to be considered awesome.

I think they're kind of a silly idea, and I think that's why I find them interesting. I've seen some that look really cool; I guess it depends on the design.
I doubt I'll ever have a 'taur fursona, but I don't dislike them.

they seem like a pain in the ass to draw
I don't personally see the appeal but if that's your thing then that's good
I just prefer my fursonas as normal anthros or ferals

I only like them if the top half is human. I don't see a point in putting a half fox anthro on a fox body, or something like that. That's the kind of taur you're talking about, right?

I like them, but they have to be done right or else they just look weird. Also, I enjoy them for their aesthetic appeal, but since I connect with my characters through detailed daydreaming, the obvious impracticalities and odd anatomy of taur furs tend to get in my way of envisioning them as truly functional characters. (Thus limiting my ability to connect with them.) Sorry.

Long story short, I like the classical Greek Taurs, with the half man, half horse. Other than that, I don't really like em. I mean I can deal with em, no big issues, just not my thing, ya'know?

Being a lover of The Chronicles of Narnia and mythology as I am, I think they're cool. Even has fursona, though I do prefer if they're half horse, half human. Or at least half horse in general. Otherwise I just think it'd make more sense to make an anthro 'sona, but that's just me. You foxtaur is super cute, though!

I'm not the biggest fan of furry taurs, I find they look kinda awkward. If other people want them that's fine I just don't personally want to own one ^^

I think there are some interesting designs but there definitely is a right and a wrong way to do it imo

 I really like them- both the traditonal half horse, half human portrayals and the other combinations like your foxtaur (which is awesome by the way).
I might make one soon. It would be interesting to see a taur fursuit, too. It would be very complicated and large. But, I think I have an idea on how it could work.

I know some taur pursuits already exist. So it could definitely by possible.
