the Lurk by Tatchit the Lurk by Tatchit
This design now belongs to :iconnil: :D

Remember I had adopted a few of these guys out a while back? Well I think it'd be neat to see other people design cool patterns on them! (no, not stars or anything too unnatural) Think stripes and elongated markings.

I was thinking about calling them Lirks/Lurks or something. Think of -lurking- creature. They're slinky, quiet, and make loud meow noises.

Ultimately I've come down to letting anyone make a 'Lurk' of their own. I don't have any size comparison chart atm but think of Jaguar size. They've got heavy paws, tough, thick necks, flexible/stable tail, and powerful back legs. The tails have thick barbs and a paddle like end. They can move through water quickly and use that tail as a rudder (think crocodile movements.)

The skin feels like micro fiber (very short and smooth!.) They've got a few feather tendrils trailing off the back of their heads with a bunch of feathery stringy fluff.


You can keep the 'Lurk' you make, but I would love to see them! I'll check in every now and then to see what you guys come up with.

These markings are some ideas I had. :)

This is amazing creature.
I love it.
I've read the comments, I've seen that I can trace the image. Since I suck at making proportions and anatomy as needed, I traced it. Sorry if You think I've done anything bad, just tell me, I won't bite, just try and fix it maybe. :L
Once again, I love the creature.

It's beautiful :3 but somehow reminds me of a Corgi - because it's legs seem shorter
It's not a bad thing
and it certainly does not look like a Corgi
