This is the home of The Chakat's Den. Here you will find all the information and illustrations on that wonderful furry race: Chakats!
For the latest information about Chakats, go to the article: An Introduction To Chakats. This will give you a fairly detailed overview of their physical and mental nature, plus a brief historical background. There are also some links to accompanying illustrations. Please note that some sections of this article are of a mature nature.
If you are already familiar with the chakats, you may want to read some stories based on the lives and loves of a few of them. Forest Tales is a series of stories that focus about the life of Chakat Forestwalker and hir family. So far there have been eighteen episodes written, with more planned. This is an adult series. Please be aware that some episodes contain sex scenes, although I hasten to add, they are done as tastefully as possible. Also, as the stories have progressed, my story writing skills have improved slightly, so hopefully you will find the latter stories are better. I have included some links to relevant illustrations.
There are also two spin-off series. Firstly, The Admiral & The Chakat. This is a mostly erotica series, but with a bit more heart and soul than most. It features Forestwalker and hir very special friend, Starfleet Admiral Kline. Secondly, Tales of the Foxtaur Clans. which focuses on the foxtaur characters in the Chakat Universe.
A growing number of chakat stories have been written by guest authors, including Terry Knight, John Plunkett, Will Sanborn, J.L. Atwood and several others. They are helping make the Chakat Universe bigger, better and more fully developed. The range of subjects and styles means that there's something for everyone.
I have also written a couple of
non-chakat based stories. They are "The
Wish" and its sequel, "Second
Chance". They are both mild erotica stories, both inspired by a couple of wonderful Terrie Smith drawings. If you want to see the picture which brought about the first story, you will just have to buy a copy of South Fur Lands, Sex & Violence, issue #1. You can find out how to get this and the regular G-rated issues by taking a peek at the SFL homepage.
As this website is dedicated primarily to
all things pertaining to chakats and other taurforms, I have made a collection of works by various artists featuring their interpretations of these species. The interpretations are greatly varied, but always interesting. Some artists have drawn them very closely to how I envisaged them, others have injected their own styles or lent a humorous stance to them. Chakona Visions is the home of these works. I named it after the new world that the chakats colonised and developed for all morph species to live in harmony. I have hundreds of pictures from many of the big names in furry art, including Terrie Smith, Roy Pounds, Monika Livingstone, Terry Knight, Mike Raabe, Ollie Canal, Jessica Willard, Eugene Arenhaus, Kacey Maltzman and many, many more. I intend to keep this collection growing as I get permissions for existing works and commissions for new pieces. Besides chakats, you will find foxtaurs, wolftaurs, skunktaurs and Quange (equitaurs), and once again, there's a mixture of General audience and Adult material.
Also you will find all of my art. The subjects are not limited to just taurs though. There is an alphabetical listing of all my authorised scans, so if you can't find it here, you shouldn't be able to find it anywhere else. There is also a thumbnail index of all the images.
I have attended several furry gatherings and I have uploaded photos from many events including ConFURence, Anthrocon, Further Confusion, Conspiracy in Wellington, New Zealand, and our own local gatherings in Australia. Many of the events have got a separate thumbnail index for those who would like to see what they are downloading. Please take a peek at my photo collection.
Chakats have friends!
Some good friends don't have the time or resources to create websites of their own, but would love to show their stuff to the furry community. Here's one that I have had a hand in bringing to you.
I am delighted to be able to say that I am the creator and maintainer of the art archive of the California Kit Fox who is none other than my good mate Roy D. Pounds II. We will be presenting lots of his art, both old and new, for your viewing pleasure. Come, visit his den, e-mail him, or even buy a print or two!
