I mean, there are plenty of online and print guides on how to draw child characters, along with artbooks and the like. Creating Loli does not at all require the artist to do something illegal or disgusting.Somehow, someway it leads back to the exploitation of children or abuse of family photos.
First of all, everybody knows furries are the greatest degenerates on Earth. Even anime fans can't stand them, for good reason. Second of all, just because some people may have done shit like this to draw their work, does not mean that all artists have. Most them just drew what came to their mind, which artists have literally been doing for hundreds of years. You can't take one or two fringe examples and just extrapolate that all loli artists work that way.The Assigned Male artist's furry cub fetish art was a trace of an innocent family photo and other artists have used real CP as reference material before. Just because the depicted subject is fictional doesn't make the evil nature of the reference material any less exploitative and vile.
