Chyme Ref Sheet by DesShade Chyme Ref Sheet by DesShade
My first ever (completed) Reference Sheet!!!

^_^ Auh this has been a goal forever now~
Granted, I wanted it to be on a much grandeur scale, but this will do for sanity's sake; for now.

Say Hello to Chyme!!
She is my newest and hence forth youngest character- But I sure love her already.

About two weeks ago I was browsing DA and I came across a beautiful photo of a king cheetah. Captivated, I began doing some extensive photo research, and before long it evolved into this jovial little spirit who introduced herself as Chyme.
Taken by her charismatic nature I instantly put her to paper.
Pegging her was phenomenally easy-
Unlike many if not all of my characters, her colors and markings came readily, as did an accompanying sense of who she was.

Since her reference sheet is so basic and introductionary here are a few more facts I will likely organize and include on a later sheet=
Chyme is a jovial individual who holds few secrets and needs no promises. She is trusting, adventurous and outgoing. Both innocent and excitable she loves company and thrives on a constant state of curiosity.
Her current occupation is mail carrier, which is a job perfectly suited to her quick and spirited personality.

Physical Traits:
Her paws are slightly bigger then the average cheetahs, though she still retains the trait of bearing no retractable claws. Her larger feet, and scruffier mane and pelt are adaptions that suit her perfectly for the climates she encounters while on errand.
She deeply loves her caretaker, though she is by no means a pet. Freedom drives and inspires her, it is the embodiment of who she is

Thank you everyone for watching my art as it progresses and evolves along side me over time.
I always appreciate your support, it fuels me to strive to do more.

Chyme belongs to me, but she can be your friend too lol~

Oh, and sorry, but here's the link to my picture. I don't have the link to the Chickensmoothie lineart, I'm sorry, my little sister printed it out for me and gave me a hard copy, so I have no idea where exactly it is. ^^;

Hi! I was just informed that a supposed 'free for use' lineart of this on Chickensmoothie was apparently stolen, and I based one of my 'bestiary' pics off of that lineart.
May I use what I have up, or would you like me to change it? I'll gladly change if you say no, and I'm very sorry, I had no idea that this even existed!

SHe is beautiful! However did you know that definition of Chyme? the pulpy acidic fluid that passes from the stomach to the small intestine, consisting of gastric juices and partly digested food. D:
