|Sonic Adventure for the Dreamcast brought us the first Chao. Little customizeable things that somehow grew on you. At first, I didn't like chao. They were wierd...squishy onion heads. What's up with that? But then, you see that Sonic Team actually did a really nice job with their A-Life, as virtual pets. So I hatched a few...started scrubbing animals on them and...all that led to this.
I love to sculpt, so I made my own custom chao! Each one is a kiln-fired ceramic version of a well-raised chao from the game.
|Miss and Zodiac. Miss is running type, zodiac is swimming type. Zodiac was always trying to tell fortunes in the little "Chao Walk" VMU game. Miss was very cat-like in the garden, sneaking around then tipping over onto the character you brought. Miss learned to color too!|
|Baby Chao are so very sweet. I did a crawling chao sculpt, but it needs to rest on the coconut or it tips over. Just like the real thing?|
|Miss, Lime, and Tiki gather near a nut. Tiki is strength type, and Lime is under-developed running type which just looked too good green to raise it further.|
|Of course, they were made to scale with the ReSaurus figures. I had always hoped someone would release a line of different toy chao, but it didn't happen.|
|Every so often you will hatch a chao that is dull and does nothing but sleep. To keep it interesting, here is a pearly egg that hatches one of the cool chao.|
