The First Chakat by KaceyM The First Chakat by KaceyM
A family portrait of Charles and Katherine Turner, with their first grown-up Chakat child, ZigZag.

Charles and Katherine Turner are the human couple who first bioengineered the Chakats, and they named the race after a combination of their own first names...

Characters belong to Goldfur

Art was done with micron pen and acrylic paints on 9"x12" illustration board.

Wow. Wonder how it feels to be the literal creators of an entirely new race?

Chakat are very cool.  Truely something different.  My Cheif of Operations is a Chakat.

I've heard of second life. Thought of joining up myself. In fact, I am hunting down somebody on it. But, I never really had the nerve to join. Is it a decent game?

@Nem - Yanno ... I'd spend a long while trying to tell you everything I'm sure you've heard or read a hundred times already. And just as quickly, you'll discredit it because you deem it aberrant behavior. So .. meh.

Why for does the troll ty to get lulz? Is english your first language? I hope not. And that is false. The troll is something inside all of us, a very small part that pounds and screams and tries to get out.

Beautiful! Wish it really was possible to bioengineer entire new breeds of life like that . . . but such power would be horrifically wasted in the hands of those here on Earth.

That's neat. I'd say you get around as well as the Chakats have... (How long have Chakat's been about anyway?)

You know i was wondering, what was the purpose of creating such a creature? I't doesn't seem "evolution compatible". I know it's just fantasy but i have a real brain bug when i see this kind of things.

Lol, I have a chakat character named zig-zag as well. Very different coloration though! This is awesome, as usual. Even though I've been learning about, reading about, and drawing chakats for many years now, I never knew the story behind the name. Wonderful!

I think he's given general permission for people to make their own chakat characters. They are all over the place =).

Just out of curiosity, why did they make hir? Was it because they couldn't have a child of their own or something like that? Nonetheless this is a very heartwarming piece.

I do believe they couldn't have their own child, and that was part of the reasoning. For more info I'd read up on the lore at www.chakatsden.com
