Furry Fandom[edit]

Thanks to Yahoo! Answers, Snow Fangs discovered the furry fandom and furries (or "awesome animal people", as per Fangs),[7] with his drawing style adapting to it. He started to seek other furs under his first furry handle, Smirk Tails, eventually joining his first furry forum, Furry 4 Life, making new friends and acquaintances.

After becoming fully involved with the fandom, he changed his handle to Snow Fangs),[8] and opened his own furry community on Google+, ★║FURRIES║★, with a member count of 16,880 furries as of October 07, 2016. Snow Fangs mainly creates furry related artwork and is known mostly by his peers for his clean humorous themed artwork.[9]

  • Snow Fangs' "Furry Philosophy" - I believe the Furry community is a wonderful place, for all kinds of people, of all sexes and backgrounds. And I will always do my very best to make sure that any newcomer gets the proper doorway into our fluffy family! Cubs (Young Furries) need to be introduced into the Fandom the way I was, into a respectful, caring and loving family. I don't want to see new people fall into the clutches of the dirty side of the fandom, or be deterred from the fandom by dirty furries.

Brony Fandom[edit]

Snow Fangs interacts with the Brony fandom by creating pony art and commenting on Brony communities.
