khimera khimera by hibbary khimera khimera by hibbary
One of the reasons I haven't been around DA much and will continue not to be is that I've been feverishly working on game art for Khimeros. You can visit the site at [link] The website is still in production, but you can sign up for the forums and hang out with everyone. :3 [link] is a direct link to the forums.

Here are some examples of the breedables. They aren't wolves or horses, per se, but a mythical animal, horselike or deerlike, yet a creature apart.

Like the chimera of Greek mythology, khimeras are composite animals. A leonine khimera bred to a lupine khimera might produce true breed offspring or a mix of the two parents' shapes, the front and back half, and a mix of their coats. Obviously, some mixed breeds are going to look better than others, but that's all part of the fun--to see what you get.

I've done a bit of a splash of all the current markings and animals. Clearly this only scratches the surface in terms of color and combinations. I could have gone on creating new ones, but I figured nine would be enough :D

Also, there will be more pets added as time goes on, as well as new markings, accessories like horns, fins, manes, and wearable items as well.

The breedable aspect is only one of many, however. You can check out the forums to find out about the other aspects of game play that will be integrated in the site. And the owner is always happy to hear any feedback about what the players are interested in.

Press DL for fullview.

Love the Tigetter. It beautifully captures the grace of both animals, and the power of the tiger.

I'm not shocked at all that they commissioned you for the work. Amazing artist. I joined the site after hearing about it from Subeta. 100x's more beautiful and I enjoy it so immensely. I love the option to breed the creatures and my 100% favorite is the Liko with the Asadia tail. I've already brought several friends to the site! Wonderful job and many wishes for your continued success.

I'm trying to figure out the various animal composites but the third one second row has me stumped. All I see is a very orange tiger. I like these combinations and I think the color choices make them fantastical.

:D The peanut gallery voted the rocks out. Which was fine with me. Once we started applying them, we discovered that the rocks were a serious pain.

I wish I could just have them all running around my bedroom! In miniature size, that is. They're all beautiful works of art, and I can honestly say they are all just as beautiful as each other. They make me want to write as well! Gahhhh!

would it be ok if i used some of those creatures for a story? i've thought of many creatures, but you did something really original with most of them... i love the one that is like a mixture of a horse with a deer head, and the one like a ferret-tiger... oh and that one with the owl head1.. lol... let me know if you woudnt bother i used some ideas from you.
