Taste cannot really be debated, but here's what I'm wondering. Why is it that so much of all the Lion King stuff I'm seing posted on FA, here, and SoFurry .... why is it hyper?
With hyper I mean super muscled, oversized cocks and balls.
Not that there's anything wrong with that. Personally, I see nothing, absolutely nothing, nada, null, zip in the entire Universe that the Lion King exists in, that would seem to get anyone interested in both at the same time, thus creating these pictures.
Again - not that there's anything wrong with that. A lot of people I watch draw these pictures - exclusively. Or a whole lot. I'm watching for two reasons. The first being that I watch anything that is even remotely Lion King related. Even those stories that have the lions wearing pants! Riding cars! Smoking cigarettes! (Why even bother with TLK Characters in such a universe is just beyond me but,.... but!) ... there's nothing wrong with that.
The second reason.... I collect it all. I don't have to like it all, but I collect everything.
And just so we're clear: I love even some of the most ridiculous hyper stuff, or stories with Lion King characters in SPACE if they come up. People are people, and people are silly like that.
I'm just way too vanilla, that's my flaw, I guess. I love them like they are in the movie, or as closely as possible. Feral, you know. Four legged. With no outrageous muscle growth, and no, they're not wearing panties, gloves, hats,or even diapers. ;) Let's hope there's nothing wrong with that either.
So yeah, here they are ... lots of them! Sometimes, I even just look at the screen, shake my head and wonder why that is. What connects Lion King and hyper muscles, hyper phalluses and hyper -everything- art? Is this just a coincidence? I know that there are plenty of people who also draw the Lion King characters anthro instead of non anthro. That is something I've just never cared much for and could shrug it off, easily. There are some exceptions but they look sexy in the movie, thank you very much ;).
I'm always the first or second kitty to defend a kink. And I mean ANY kink. People have the right to to enjoy whatever the hell phantasy/art/drawings/stories they want. Hyper. Anthro. Gore. Crapping on each other, you name it. Even if it's all that TOGETHER. Really anything is fine. I just wonder why it seems like that especially Lion King characters get that a lot. Or is that just selective and I haven't been looking at the big picture there? Every time I check for new art I seem to get a whole bunch of TLK stuff, but to be honest, for every ... 30th hyper, anthro, gore, and killing TLK pic I see, I find - with a whole lot of luck - one picture where the cast still somewhat closely resembles what they look like in the movie. The kind I really love the most, those I personally hold very dear :).
If I picture search (on FA or here) for, say, Krystal yiff art, or something, she almost always looks like Nintendo made her out to be, only in lots of different art styles. While it's a lot more common for the TLK cast (in yiffy situations as adult, not cub, typically on FA) to come out in shapes and sizes like the incredible Hulk on steroids? :)
That's a question I've been asking myself for a while. I know there's no real answer to that.
And again, just so we're really really clear: Everyone I'm watching, hyper or not, crap or not, anthro or not, canon or not, you all draw stuff I've liked or like all the time. For example, kumbartha, you do draw awesome stuff that I wouldn't want to miss, even if the majority isn't for me. :) I'm good with it, really. I'm sorta a fan of all of you, even if I have a strong preference for the "true to the origins..." kinda stuff. :) Please don't feel offended or something like that. After all is said and done, this is just an innocent question I wanted to put up there.
