Not Humans With Fur
One of the most common comments you hear is not to make characters 'humans with fur'. But how would a anthro world actually differ from our own. How can we use the differences to add some spice to the tale we endeavor to tell? We will take a look at how anthropomorphic requirements and physiology would result in design solutions for technology and some aspects of culture using the same methods used to engineer solutions to complex problems in today's human world.

And with multiple suits, we'll be able to record multiple characters at once. In this two hour panel, we'll animate a two-character CGI scene with furry characters right there at the con!
