As the furry fandom/subculture has been springboarded from the sci-fi and fantasy fandoms and their conventions, I think that the current influence of anime (and the capabilities of the Internet) will, if anything else, bring the furry fandom into the realm of animation, with many animation artists usurping the prominent roles of the comics and stills artists who have long dominated the furry visual media.
This will be mostly enabled with the usage of the following techniques:
- Machinima and other 3D recordings of posable/scriptable 3D models
- Flash animation and other 2D recordings of scriptable/drawable 2D avatars.
- Hand-drawn cell animation
- Live action video/film recordings
