Senpai noticed me holy heck
I'm really amused and satisfied that you, a professional industry level artist, is peeking around the adoptable community

Your work is great and you're crazy-prolific! Inspiring stuff :D

Here's the deal: There's a sort of quiet stigma in video games and concept-art circles in general against things that have any level of furry-art flavor. But the thing is, we're regularly tasked to design creatures and quadrupeds of all kinds- and the same folks who do killer space-marines don't necessarily know their way around a kitten.
From what I've seen in art like yours and others' all around the adoptables community- there's a nuanced, inventive, and intensely appealing approach to creature design that is mostly sequestered off in these sub-communities when a TON of that design language could filter into the mainstream and kick butt.
I don't pretend to know much about adoptables or understand how the community sustains itself- but you guys have perfected the art of designing creatures that have an instant "I Need To Own That" quality. In the world of games (skins, pets, mounts) and toy design, that could easily translate into serious (not to be crass, but-) cash, just because of good design and killer color work! Also I just like it, and I think people should get over themselves.
So me? I'm here to learn. Teach me, Senpai.
