You may be wondering what exactly is ‘Anthro Art’?
The word Anthropomorphic literally means “like a human.” It is used to describe a well-known concept called anthropomorphism: ascribing human characteristics to a non-human being or object. (…) the word can apply to any non-human thing, including animals, plants, and inanimate objects.
Ever since the 80s, the furry fandom has used the word to refer primarily to bipedal animals. Anthropomorphic animals are sometimes called anthro or morphic for short, and art featuring furry characters is sometimes called anthro art. This is somewhat ironic, as anthro ultimately derives from the Greek anthropos, a word that means “human being.”
