I've been playing around with a number of ideas in my head, one of which involves anthropomorphic animals, or humanized versions of animals. The thing is, when we usually see this, it's considered childish given today's society, what with Alvin and the Chipmunks, Kung Fu Panda, or any other generic family film. Now, I've been wanting to create a working fantasy world featuring humans, and a host of anthropomorphic species all collaborating together. I'll probably be creating something more original - not mice-men or lizard-men or anything like that. I really want to do this to put more color into the world, as I feel like a lot can be done with this, and a host of possibilities can arise from it. So, what comes to your mind when you think of anthropomorphic animals in stories?
