Chanur by carcadann Chanur by carcadann
Hooray for semi-obsure/no longer that popular science fiction! I have much :heart: for C.J. Cherryh's Pyanfar Chanur, even if the writing style is a bit strange and repetitive at times. I wanted to draw Stsho or Mahendo'sat but for the life of me I can't figure out what either of them look like.

Drawing is ballpoint pen scribble with color from OpenCanvas. (Hani fur = hard to color)

(And PS the dog isn't it the book, it's something I randomly scribbled and went ahead and colored.)

There is a Mahendo'sat in Michael Whelan's excellent cover of Chanur's Homecoming.

And if you look really carefully, there are some Shto huddling in the corridor in the background, but probably not distinct enough to get a good image of them.

Haha, I see this is quite old. But I just happened to be looking for any fanart for this series...
I admit it has been aaaages since I've read these books, but I loved them... and I quite like how you've portrayed these characters. So fun to see favorite book characters come to life! :)

Thanks! I feel like I should go back and read this series - then make some more fanart! :> Maybe soon.
