Jakkai Reference Sheet by raizy Jakkai Reference Sheet by raizy
I'm not in the habit of making these, so I probably never would have made this if I wasn't commissioned to do it. Jakkai are from my webcomic, Slightly Damned, but you probably already knew that. If you didn't, please give my webcomic a chance. You may even enjoy it!

You can learn more about the Jakkai and laugh at my outdated art here: [link]

I am curious, is it alright if I make a 3D model of a Jakkai? I asked for permission because I'd rather get permission from the artist then just do so flat out. Keep up the good work on Slightly Damned!

As long as you give credit where's it due, and possibly link to the comic, I don't mind. :) Have fun!

I have a question

Is there a purpose to why Rhea has such a long tail
not that its bad
it isnt bad at all
Im just curious
was it her genetics?
was it because of her family
or did you want to because...'Merica

It's probably just due to genetics.

You can make whatever you like, as long as you don't claim the Jakkai as your own creation.

Currently trying to draw my own Jakkai, with this as a reference and many other things like some of your comics for clothing and mouth details... I am going to properly give you credit for this don't worry about that :3 It's just I have a hard time drawing hands and feet that I might be over worrying about how it might come out... Wish me luck though!

PS: I'm DragonWolf234 on FurAffinity if you have no clue who this is :s

This is a serious question: You said the Jakkai hatchlings are raised by the community as a whole, and adult Jakkai don't know which ones are theirs by blood relation.

This practice reminds me of Disney's Gargoyles who raise their children in a similar way. Gargoyles look to the whole clan as parental figures, they hatch in rookeries around the same time and the hatchlings regard each other as rookery brothers & sisters.

Did you derive the Jakkai way of bringing up their children from the Gargoyle way, or is it just coincidence?

Yup, I admit it. I love Gargoyles!

Go ahead. Just don't claim any credit for the Jakkai race and be sure to spread the good word about Slightly Damned. I'll consider it fanart!

Jakkai have really cool anatomy. I like how their legs are designed for walking both as bipeds or quadrupeds. Though what I'd like to know is the process in which a Jakkai's fur coat changes into a winter fit coat. Either it involves a LOT of shedding or their fur magically changing color and growing out.

It works the same as any other animal's.

I love the Jakkai. They're one of the most unique fantasy races I've ever seen. I thought Rhea was some sort of furry while I was reading the first few pages, until I realized that I had no idea what animal she would be.

I have to ask, did you have any particular inspiration for them? They keep making me think of kangaroo rats, for some reason.

:iconraizy:
raizy Featured By Owner May 12, 2011
Raichu, kangaroo rats, meerkats, lizards, monotremes, Snarf from Thundercats, monkeys, bat wings, and humans are a couple of the things I can list off as inspiration for the Jakkai design. Most people just stop at "OMG IT'S RAICHU" though.

Huh. I didn't see the "Raichu" in there at first, but it's clear now. I always love analyses of fictional creatures, so I really loved this page.

I do believe genetics would be the answer, because the gene for a long tail is dominant over a short one. That Ooor and this is most likely the case PLOT LINES!!!
