Wakdchunk by Asanbonsam Wakdchunk by Asanbonsam
This Wakdchunk is a member of a species of shifters I created since I found the Baitu in the Changing Breeds of World of Darkness lacking and poorly done. The Wakdjungégabo are a species of North American shifters that turn between human and White-tail Jackrabbit. There is a similar species in Eurasia, but while the Wakdjungégabo are quintessential tricksters the Eurasian Mirajarim are a much more sinister sort.

Makes sense, since I read many different Native American tribes classify the hare as a trickster spirit - a being with great supernatural powers including shape-shifting.

Yeah I read that too, this one is basically inspired by I think the name was Nanabozho.

I think the same character is called Manabush and Michabo, depending on the tribes. They're all under the name "Great Hare."

These spirits/gods have different names yes, whether they are the same being I don't know, it could be that there are simply similarities, like between Baal and Yahwe.

My goal was mostly to make these beings fit, in the way that it might work, so I made this name anagram. I certainly didn't want to do it the way some authors do, e.g. I remember one where the werewolves called themselves "breed". Not gonna be having that. :D

Amazing work on the pose and detailing - love the claws, and the detail and shading of the muscles, particularly those sexy sternocleidomastoids... great work on somehow making the expression sinister even though rabbits and hares are traditionally "friendly" animals ;) :love:

Man I had to google what muscles you were talking about. :D

Nasty claws on that thing! It's hard to make a rabbit look scary, even though in real life they do pretty freaky things.

Yeah, that's why I gave them these claws. No one would be scared because of their teeth. However this is not the most difficult, not considered that I am trying to do a werechicken.^^

Oh, I think a werechicken would be more frightening than many things...
I have a bantam rooster that was a former fighting bird, and although he's usually friendly enough, he has "relapses" and attacks you. He recently left my father's arm bleeding in three places, and flapped up my leg and used his spurs. :XD: Even tried to attack the blacksmith... I SWEAR THAT THING KNOWS NO FEAR.
He also happens to be called "Chuck Norris". :'D

Sounds interesting. Do you have a picture? Maybe I could use him as a model.

Haha, slight problem with getting a picture - our camera is ancient and the zoom is really bad, so the only way to get a picture would be to bend down and stick it in his face... which even the bravest of men may come to regret. :lol:
He looks kinda like this though - [link] [link](got more feathers than this second one though - he kind of has almost a "mane" or "ruff" of feathers that stands up when he's annoyed - WARNING XD!)

Hm, the eyes of the first one have something. The problem is that a chicken's eyes are on the side and I have to adapt it to a humanoid form especially the face, albeit I am thinking of a giant beast form also, one that is closer to the extinct terrorbirds. Maybe in that case I rather have the humanoid near-man form quite human and save the bird-like chracteristics for the terror bird form...

Yes... indeed, Chuck Norris himself has almost blood-red eyes... we call him the "red-eyed devilchicken" when he's being naughty. :lol:
And that is kinda a problem - terror cranes are a great idea, although I think maybe you could strike a balance where the eyes kinda face diagonal, so they're not as sideways as the normal chicken, but not completely binocular vision either... anyway, it's up to you in the end, and haha, I'll totally love the beast form... a.k.a. "what Chuck seems to think he is". :giggle:

These chicken shifters are based on a mythical bird of the Phillipines and I believe its best to be as close as possible to real world mythology in such cases. You don't happen to know something about Filipino folklore do you?

Well it will not have wings, that would make no sense, since chickens can't really fly. I was more thinking of a mansized feathered humanoid, albeit I would have to figure out how to make the head look.

Ok, you meant these "teeth"... well those goose teeth aren't really made for hurting someone. Actually I am thinking of giving these werechickens two hybrid forms. The first one is rather like a feathery human and the second one closer to the extinct terror birds. Albeit since these forms do not have the in-built "delusion" (it's kind of a mental shield that makes most humans forget what tehy saw) of the war form within that fictional universe created by White Wolf I would need something that could work within the mythological world of Southeast Asia. I guess I have to do some more research.
