But you just lost your job and your nest egg was plundered due to accident after accident. However, you’ve been presented with a proposition from a group of shadowy but wealthy benefactors: if you create and publicly post large quantities of explicit furry art, with more cash rewards depending on the fetish sent your way, you will remain employed for a minimum of ten years and will have cash reserves to boot. However, you cannot opt out of this decision. The alternative is to pray and hope you land on your feet eventually, but who knows when that will come?

Do you sell your soul and if so, to what degree? Furries need not respond

As long as I don't have to draw Lucario, count me in. Chances are I've seen worse than what I'd be drawing...and it might even be fun trying to outdo other people. Can't really have the luxury of principles if I'm flat-out broke.

      First of all, good question. Second of all, psyduckingno way.

      "Dignity, dignity. Always dignity." - Gene Kelly from Singin' in the Rain. There is nothing dignified about sketching dog people doing nasty things to each other for a consortium of creeps. That's the lowest rung. The true nadir. The ultimate abyss. The Marianas Trench of humanity. You're never going to climb back up after that.

      If I was ever in a pinch, I'd just sell a kidney. 262,000 in US dollars. Not bad. I could throw in my scalp for 600, maybe a liver for 157,000. I'd have to live cautiously but psyduck it, that's good money. Who needs two kidneys anyway? It's excessive! Flog 'em, that's what I say.

      But maybe, just maybe I'd do a really tame picture and see how much cash I get for it. And I mean tame von tame. Like, two furries kissing or holding hands or sharing a meal of spaghetti. I've really been trying to ramp up my purity and it's been working, so I don't want to undo all of these years of work just because my wallet's a little thin and a git is a lot horny.

      ... anyway, what if a prospective mate found out about my drawings, but didn't know they were commissions done out of desperation? What if they just thought I was some kind of sicko? Worst yet, what if they liked them and decided to dress up as a dog person?!

      Yeah, that is the path to the Dark Side, my friends. Murdering younglings ain't got nothing on it.

        There are many things I can think of that come under the "selling my soul" category but that is not one of them. I'd do it.

        To be honest even if I didn't lose my job or my nest egg and the opportunity came my way, depending on how profitable it would be, and providing I had the talent, I'd do it anyway.

        I mean, technically furry art doesn't have to be porn but... well I've been on DeviantArt so I guess it's a moot point.
        Hell yes I'd do it. Lot's of money for drawing something I'm completely desensitised to at this point? I'm in.

        One particular benefactor will only and exclusively request Lucario inflation porn.

          Wow. I genuinely did not expect this level of nonchalance. I've really gotta find some prudes my own age, huh. Maybe start a temperance union of some sort, or a puritan's movement.

          I'll pray for your souls, but no promises.

          You become artistically gifted *and* have a nearly-captive running market?

          Fursonas for everyone!

          [*rawrs in insanely rich*]

          But really. It's a market that's already there (it was there before you were born, most likely) and while you have to create explicit furry art, at least you get to choose your subjects, even in the case of commissions since you are the one who's taking them. So you're forefront for "containing the damage" if you so want.

          Worst case scenario if you feel too bad about it, start drawing explicit furry art of your shadowy stakeholders. If they don't like it, they're free to commision you into *not* drawing them more for a good price, and if they do, well, more money for you and even stronger captive target so you can slowly stop creating art of most anyone else. It's a win-win-win or a win-wine-tie at worst.

          But really, what's to lose here? We're entering the decade of furry. Cash in now that's something more open, and you can retire before anything too bad or too good happens.

          i can't sell my soul to these people, as i already sold it to the devil years ago

          But in all seriousness, I don't know if I'd do it or not.

          That one benefactor had better pay more than the rest of them combined or look elsewhere, then...

            You do realise that it's our duty to start a new civilisation in the woods and raise them in our image, don't you? We'll emerge when the dust cloud settles and all of the deviants are gone.

            I'll collect the nuclear weapons and you get the lead for the shelters.

            If I were artistically gifted, the commissions would not stop at the Furry community. I need money, y'all.

            I'd also look into sewing/costume making. People pay thousands and thousands of dollars for those suits! My boyfriend wouldn't care - he'd be right there with me helping me create additional materials to get more money.

              I mean arguably I guess drawing weird fetishes would help me master anatomy better for non-fetish drawings so sure why not.

              I can up the offer. Not only will I draw but throw in a short fiction based on my clients' characters. More bang for your buck, yo.

              I'm not going to draw explicit art of anything, so consider me jobless, tbh. I'm not comfortable drawing fetishes, either, so.
