:: design ideas
~ try to keep natural colors on the pelt/fur and mane if possible.
~ The design doesn't have to be natural (things like swirls, tribal designs, etc are okay!)
~ I like when things/designs glow!
~ If an element (fire, water, earth, air, or even ice if anyone would be willing) were incorporated = <3
~ accessories are definitely a plus; necklaces, bracelets, scarves, earrings, goggles/sunglasses, etc.
~ blue topaz is my favorite stone, so if you could incorporate that in someway, that'd boost it.
~ small battle scars are a plus.
~ i like the mane (if a male) and tail to be a tad poofier than normal.
~ i love the lion king - if that helps lol.
~ please, no scene/emo/goth type of accessories or colors.
FieryFilly & ChiCha wrote:Just some side info in case anyone is interested: I really like the simple, basic designs; nothing too complex. Some times even at a medium complexity works. I just don't like all the flashy, "lots of horns, super feathery wings, socks, bracelets, 3 necklaces, an earful of earrings, 3 different types of designs, and 15 different colors" types of designs. Not for me. x) (aka the "I've got lots" designs c:)
I'm trying to make a "clan" or group of four or five characters that are element based (fire, water, earth, wind, and maybe even ice if someone is up to it). So if anyone's willing to make element based... I'd love you forever<3
a tribal lion would be so purty c;
guess I have to be more specific x) When I say natural colors, I just mean colors c; you can put horns on it, headdresses, feathers, fancy face wear, or things like that. Don't be scared. Just don't over do it x)

~ First, I got to say, I absolutely LOVE the fire. It's amazing! <33 The wings add to the awesome factor. Also, I feel that the white under the chin and on the belly pop more with the red colors. Everything is magnificent! :3
2 ~ OuO it's.. it's.. whoa. I very much like the design. *-* The orange stands out so well against the brown. And the heart made of sapphire <3 too bad it isn't topaz ;D it's still lovely! I'd /like/ to see some earrings/accessories; but it's still great! <33

~ The colors blend so well it's eye catching <3 and the design is fantastic! The accessories are so gorgeous and so is are the blue tones! I love the sandy color of the mane (well it looks sandy on my computer) and the purple-ish (?) color of the paw pads and nose is so pretty! The front claws may be a bit long but that's alright, adds to the fierceness of it (:!
