Nightmare presents Chiropan (adoptable species)
I've actually been making Chiropan for quite a while, but I've finally decided to release them onto the forums. =D
I say release, but this isn't s typical adoption, where I present a bunch of Chiropan up for grabs. This is essentially a Make Your Own adoption.
What this means is that I will provide you with some examples of the species and some rules about their creation, as well as a little information about the species itself. Armed with this knowledge, you can tell me your ideas, and if I like it, I will create a Chiropan for you based on it.
Like say you wanted a Chiropan with the theme "dark forest". If I was interested in your idea, I might make you a Chiropan like this:
You can give me themes, accessories, give me a color scheme to work with, ect. The only real requirement is that I like your idea enough to be inspired.
Here's some information on the species itself. The reference is a little old and needs updating to reflect the style I've settled on, but it should work fine.
Blood: The color of a Chiropan's blood determines the color of its internal organs and muscles, as well as its sclera, tongue, inner ear, and fingernail color. Blood comes in may colors, and multicolored blood may present itself as mismatching colors in these areas.
Chiropan heads are removable, and their necks constantly leak blood. They can reattach them, but they prefer to hold their heads. The heads can control the body as long as they remain in contact with any part of it, and the bodies themselves can move on their own. However, the bodies are fairly stupid without their heads. Chiropan are generally very mischeivious, and quite enjoy scaring hapless people by removing their heads.
Their fur is extremely fine under normal circumstances, but it can grow in quite thick on their arms, necks, legs, and thighs.
There is really no limit to the size or shape of a Chiropan's ears. Complex ears with notches, nodes, and various other non-typical formations are rare, as well as unusually short. Long ears that stick up straight are typical, but they may also be oriented backward, forward, and at an angle. Drooping ears are a non-beneficial aesthetic mutation.
Pretty self-explanatory. Chiropan use their tails for balance. Longer tails are usually prehensile, and split tails are a mutation that is rarely seen. It is even rarer to posses a split tail that they can control independently.
Chiropan may or may not have horns, but they can be found in all sorts of different shapes and sizes. More intricately or complexly shaped horns are rarer, and multiple different horns are practically unheard of.
Basically anything you can concieve. The more complex, however, the more rare.
Most Chiropan do not have wings, as Aethyr pods are commonly found on the shoulders. Those that do, however, are rarely able to achieve flight with them. Most often, present wings are too small to support their density. If wings are present, they will usually be attached to the lower back, just above the tail. Multiple and extra limbs are extremely uncommon, and more often than not, they are vestigal, rather than functional.
Aethyr pods are most commonly found on the shoulders of a Chiropan. They contain Aethyr essence of the corresponding element of their color, and are usually shaped to represent the element as well. Larger Aethyr pods contain more Aethyr, Aethyr can be extruded and solidified from these pods into any number of useful items. Wings will boost the Chiropan's speed, but it can also be formed into weapons, tools, or used in its purest form to affect the environment. Destroying a Chiropan's Aethyr pods can be life-threatening. If a Chiropan cannot gather more Aethyr, it will eventually run out and die.
Chiropan are able to switch gender at will. Chiropan lay clutches of tough, rock-like eggs, with clutches yeilding up to 7 hatchlings. Chiropan hatchlings are called Pips. Pips are unable to remove their heads until they are about a year old.
This is basically all you need to know about the species.
Here are some examples of Chiropan I have already made:
So, fire away with your ideas.
I've been waiting for this.. I've seen these babes on dA for quite a while.
I uh.. Was wondering if you could make one based on.. Wait
I bet you can guess...
Majora's mask. Eheheheh....
You can do most of what you wish! But one thing please, could ya make it floofy? Real floofy?
Oh it's beautiful! And I can see it now. The floof sort of looks like leaves and he has the tree coloring as well so he's going to like plop down in a bush and blend in. Nailed it.
I already have two of these beauties but I'm greedy. I'll try and get more XD
These look awesome! Definitely tracking to see all the awesome Chiropans, even if I don't request one myself.
Can I have number four and six?The sixth one reminds me of Kumiho and I absolutely love them! :3
And as suggestion,maybe the coral reef.
Something about Mythology,please.Make one based on Kumiho,the nine-tailed fox.
Something like this for clothes:
Make the fur black with some blue symbols on the tails and make the eyes yellow.Make it look more like a female and young,like in the reference for clothes.Impress me with the clothes' colors.Also,make it have a life essence ball in hand,like this:
League of Legends is life.Sorry,I couldn't resist! xD
How about one based off a Tiki? Sort of one with a ton of dull bright colors (dull yellow, dull red, etc.), and that has somewhat symetrical markings? I was thinking the fluff would be mostly on the bottom. I don't know, it's 6:30 am where I am. XD
Woah! This is awesome! Wonderful job! You can use it as well, because it is your art. I think you still deserve rights to it because you made it. :) I will put it in my signature! :) Thanks very much!
These are really good :D
Would you by any chance be interested in doing a steampunk themed Chiropan?
aha, he is so cute. I shall put him in my signature, thankyou x3
Ohhhhhh! I've seen these interesting little fellers before! Hmm... Perhaps you could do one based on Jack Frost? Seems fitting of their prankster-like personalities.
A few more prompts I can think of are... Origami (figures. Two origami flowers sitting on my desk right now.), The Sea, Jellyfish, and art supplies (I once drew a critter that was made out of various art supplies, and it was kind of fun.) You can pick any of them, if any of them interest you anyways x)
These are so cool! Would you be interested in doing one with a sort of tropical rainforest theme? Or maybe one with a sky theme. Whichever one you'd prefer to do :)
And I will try again.Would you be interested in doing a paradise bird or parrot themed one?Or a magical trick/optical illusion themed one.Which one you want to try. ^.^
If you are interested I'd love if you made one with a coral reef theme ^^ Though I don't know how it could work...so just an idea XD
I see now that someone already suggested that idea, so in it's place maybe one themed after the lotus flower.
Or if not that perhaps a theme based on the art of the Tlinget tribe, totem poles in particular maybe.
Tracking! Debating whether to ask for one or not... :P
Eek! That sucks, man. I feel ya, one of my tablets just di.ed on me for absolutely no reason a few years ago. Hope it mysteriously revives or you can get a new one (hopefully for a good price) soon!
Ahhhh, at least you got some good use out of yours. The tablet I mentioned I'd only had for a year, and I took care of it too. Hope it works, can't really give you advice as I'm hopeless with computer stuffs xP
Wow these are so cool could you make me one that resembles Link from Twilight Princess Please!
What about a hummingbird themed one? Maybe one that looks like a Rufous hummingbird or even better a Marvellous Spatuletail hummingbird! Or...just hummingbirds in general
Now that would be cool!
Here's some ideas for Chiropan themes
-Half marbles? Idk what they're called. Those coloured glass things some people use for decorations)
-Soap suds/bubbles (Idk XD)
-A city skyline (A city skyline fading into a blue sky would make an interesting Chiropan colour scheme)
-More to come?
These are just random ideas I had that I thought might make a good Chiropan
-Broken glass/A shattered mirror
-Something technology like? Maybe speakers/wires/some other electronic thing
-Some sort of flower maybe Orchids/Lilys/Some other pretty or cool flower
Where can I go to see more of your Chiropans? Like where can I look?
Ok I did look on Devianart
yeah a day of the dead Chiropan would be cool
You didn't even like the glowing Chiropan idea? ,you could dress it up with glow bracelets and stuff
but anyway I'm going to keep posting ideas,I guess I just would really like to see a Chiropan based on one of my ideas
Tracking til these are off hold.
-Glow in the dark Glow sticks/glow bracelets Now that would be an awesome Chiropan :D
Sorry about saying you were ignoring me,I didn't know that you made me a Chiropan. Thanks! It looks awesome! Very glow-y :D It probably won't show up in my sig for a while,because I don't know how to put pictures in my sig,but when I do figure out how to put it in my sig I'll make sure to credit you!
That's good...uh...could you look at some of my suggestions? And also here's another idea
-Something like the Day of the Dead holiday celebrated in Mexico
Some things you could possibly base Chiropan on:
I don't want a Chiropan,well I do but I wouldn't be able to put in my signature
I'm just trying to help by giving you ideas for possible Chiropan
I don't want any of them since I can't put them in my signature
im trying to give you ideas for cool Chiropan
What comes to mind when you hear 'Rising Tides, Crashing Skies'?
Or a Chiropan based on Greek mythology.
