meerkats aren't easy, espcecially when we only had one model (Timon) to base all these characters off of - but despite it all there are many unique 'kats roaming the Pridelands all with unique styles. :3

Hehe... true!

It was just Timon in the beginning, but now it seems we a bunch of kats around! :D

There's me and you, Chusta, Allinia, Chandra, The Humon, Oscen (back when she was Funa - she drew some kats), Cygnus (back when she was Keham - same thing as Oscen), Kimya, a few others... uhh... i think! :eek:

Jessey and Jesskat *hee hee* Than there's PaffKat (sp?) Who was a fairly recent addition to the archive. I know of many people who have had meerkat personas but not a lot of the frequent the fandom anymore.)
Chandra hasn't drawn her meerkat in years - I'm not certain if she considers herself still a fan. (Although her Timon website is the only one of her fan sites that I know of still up).

Well of course you count! *lol*

'Uzi is probably one of the best fan fiction authors around - and one of the few people who could write cannon to the characters. :D
I miss all those guys, the Hakuna Matata squad, etc. Although there are a lot of fans still around, there doesn't seem to be a lot of projects which follow. :P

Yeah... that kinda is sad tho...

I've been drawing since '91 and i 'm getting back into the swing of drawing kats after a little bit of a sabbatical (from '97 to '00)... Heh...

*flops*

It wasn't until I got my scanner back in '98 I think that I really started to draw meerkats in quantity - and was pretty decent at it too compared today.
Back then I was a lot more confident in my artwork and a lot more experimental. I knew what I was doing wasn't the greatest but just seeing what *could* I do was more important to me than what *can* I do.

I sort of got in a middle of a disagreement between some online friends and decided to leave a lot of communities and go into lurk mode for what was left. Durring that time I felt less intent to play and was pressured into making things look more perfct with portfolio applications coming up.
I never did apply for anything but that whole stress has still got me up in a rut and for a long while I lost the ability to draw the little critters. In fact, I slowly and arduously worked my way back to drawing lion cubs (as they are a little less complicated) and it wasn't until the last few months that I've been able to draw a distinguishable meerkat. :P

The funny thing is though, how I draw meerkats today is completely opposit of my viewpoint a few years ago. I was so irked by people who drew their noses as a dot -and that's exactly what I do now! *lol* I still struggle with it though, I just can't recall what I used to do that made it so much easier when I was younger...maybe it was all in my attitude.


Oh yes, Orochi/leon/I forget what he calls himself now used to be on the old forum along with Gabrielle - two other meerkat artsits. They both are on yerf now.

*sorry to vent on all of you, I haven't been quite content these last few days and it might show in random bouts of agressiveness or long babble.* :P

"So here we have Sakura, giving the Wind card a shocking first impression with this thunder-themed sarong by Madison. The lightning bolts and the big yellow bow accentuate the sarong perfectly - but she still looks like a goshdarned mook!"
