Western Geckos by Culpeo-Fox Western Geckos by Culpeo-Fox
Victorian foxes became fad. So we decided to change it into a western story, performing Whisper and Gneffer as geckos. Geckos are awesome and absolute no-trend-animals, unlike foxes, wolves and co.

....what.



Okay, so this picture is an obvious LOL-cow-result.
You know, there were times, when fox loving-people and fox-characters were a minority everywhere and i was happy about that. But also proud that i couldn't get called "trendfollower".

What happened? I suddenly became one of the actual trendsetters, speaking of the love for foxes and they got the "new wolves" to some degree, if you know what i mean. Trolls and haters followed, aaah, ooh, the evil foxtards.
First it felt horrible. I became what i hated once. But it didn't take me long to realize: Heck, why should i care? :P The fox is and always was "my" animal and i would never ever change it for the sake of being unique or because i fear to be called trend-follower, the fox means way too much to me to do so. And i also realized how childish i was since i also used to judge wolves for their trend (beside the fact that i truly don't like the animal itself, though. Sorry, wolfpeople, don't want to offend you. :/) .

Each to his own. Learn to ignore the trolls and kiddies. They will go on anway and follow another trend in time.
Am i overrated because i drew foxes? I think no. Because i doubt that one can imagine what it feels like to be close to your soul-animal, feeling its breath, seeing into its eyes, coming home. And this is, what distinguishes a trendfollower from a person who really cares for the animal.

long story short:
I don't mind any of your decisions and all. But don't change things because the majority screams for it. I know people who did so and became very unhappy with it - until they found back to their roots again.

No offence to anyone, just my opinion. End of story.

Lulz, aren't they cute? No really, i like Geckos very much! I used to catch them the times i was in Thailand. The Hemidactylus frenatus-species can be found everywhere there.

Yeah, they are really cute as geckos. Heh, I dig those hats. While I was in Florida I was seeing little lizards all over the place as well; Brown Anoles I think (Anolis sagrei). I like this picture, and I agree with that 'rant' up there as well. Personally I do like wolves because I see a wise and powerful animal, almost like an owl or something (at least in the spiritual sense; I know wolves are intelligent, but they're really not THAT smart. And on their own, not really all that strong either, compared to a tiger or other big cat). You like foxes, you always have, and that's you. Hell, I like foxes too (Found your art by searching up culpeo foxes and expecting to find photos; Nope! :lol:). So anyways, great picture, great rant. Draw on. :salute:

I completely understand!!! Wolves have fascinated me ever since I tried out a game about them in elementary school - and since I liked to draw even BEFORE that, it was only natural for me to draw wolves. Only THEN did I go onto Deviantart for inspiration and noticed the wolf trend. I loved wolves and I still do no matter what!!!
