What are Khimaira Friesians?:
Khimaira Friesians are a "normal" friesian breed with all characteristics of a friesian and a average height from 15 to 17 hands, but even 18 hands can occur. The first born Khimaira was mistaked for a chimera horse. But a genetic test showed otherwise, there wasn't a second DNA but a complete new and unknown gen. Because this gen makes the friesian look like a chimera it was named khimaira. khimaira doesn't produce a complete new dna coat and therefor it can only lighten or darken the base coat of the horse. Till now only the paint khimaira is known that makes the khimaira coloration looks like tobiano, overo, sabino or splash. But we believe that there will be more khimaira variations out there and we still try to breed them. Appaloosas are not known till now, but we have some great friesian mixed horses with appaloosa patterns, so we are sure to deliver them to you in a short amount of time.

    So you think you want to be apart of the Technicat's manufacturing team, eh? Well, good on you! It's always great to have new ideas and designs thrown around here. Be sure to read up on everything you need to! People who fail to do so will most definitely not become a member of the team. If we can't trust you to read the user guide, we certainly can't trust you to make more beloved Technicats for the community. They rely on us to be reliable, after all!

Rules for AS entries!
- do not remove the 'FAKE!' sign
- make at least 2 entries before being considered
- do not create your own Sobagiya, we have myos for a reason :)
- It is preferred you use this to show which genotypes from each locus is there, as well as a description that's more understandable, such as "AWAW a | nn | bb | Wild sable with brown and recessive black", though the genotype itself is optional, the description is mandatory.

You can always ask a staff member for help if you don't understand what genetics you're using! It helps if you use an image of a real life dog as reference for the fur. Custom genetics may become a part of the species eventually, but it hasn't been seen yet.

Hello everyone!
I'm gonna make this easy.

- Please make at least 3 entries minimum
- No covers please
- If you are selected as an artist you are 100% guaranteed a special type of MYO slot after being staff for a certain period

- Please list all traits used
- Entries can be used as MYOs

floc - singular ⟡ flox - plural ⟡
«the flox are a species of psychic, floating foxes whose powers have been sealed away since ancient times.
unlocking flox with magic keys releases a burst of light or dark aura based on the floc's nature.
by adopting a floc, you agree to assist in the mission to uncover the mysteries of their past.
are you up to the challenge?

⟡ species created and owned by akami-chan and managed by allinianendorsement
    interested in becoming an artist for fox-n-key? or... maybe earning some tokens?
    well, this is your chance !! c:
    here, you can design //very exciting// floc backgrounds to either try out for a guest artist position, earn tokens, or both !!

    but wait––what are tokens?
    tokens Image are the official currency we use here in the floc realm.
    they may be used to buy items from the shop in the near future !

    listed below are the rules and guidelines for this search.
    please make sure to read and understand them thoroughly before entering.

    ⟡ you are to post a fully designed rectangle with a transparent background and the key with your design clipped to it.
    ⟡ there are detailed instructions under the cover, please read and follow them carefully.
    ⟡ entries that fail to follow these guidelines will be ignored.

    here is a helpful guide to see where the design will go on the animated floc. try not to crowd corners.

    ⟡ feel free to create as many entries as you like––this is an ongoing search until stated otherwise.
    ⟡ do not post entries under a cover.
    ⟡ it is preferred that you link all previous entries.

    off-oekaki entries are accepted, but only tokens may be earned from these designs.
    you will not be considered for a guest artist position. the psd can be found here.
    ⟡ once you have created a design, submit it by replying to this thread with the full transparent image of the pattern field.
    you are welcome to post as many entries as you would like. do not add new designs to old posts. they will likely be missed.

    ⟡ if we like what we see, one (or both) of these situations can happen:
    1) your design will be made into a floc !
    2) you will be invited to be a guest artist !

    1) if your design is made into a floc, you will be notified and rewarded with 15 tokens.
    1) if your entry was off-oekaki, it will be made into an official floc that will be given out in a game stream.

    2) if you are invited to be a guest artist, you are allowed to make up to five official adopts within a one month period––and earn an unedited custom floc that does not count towards your eight-floc limit.**

    ⟡ even though this is an artist search, you are welcome to post designs solely for the purpose of trying to earn tokens. you are not required to enter with the intention of being hired as a guest artist. if you are not interested in being hired, please state so. in this case, including the key is optional.

    guest artist guidelines
    ⟡ joining/being in the discord is highly preferred but not required.
    ⟡ you must create at least two new (not entries converted to adopts) designs before creating your custom.
    ⟡ you are free to turn one of your entries into your custom.
    ⟡ if you wish to turn an entry (that wasn't already made) into an official adopt, you are free to do so.
    ⟡ ⟡ however, of your monthly five, a maximum of two may be created this way.
    ⟡ ⟡ this is also discouraged, as the purpose of being a guest artist is to demonstrate (with more designs) what youre capable of !
    ⟡ after you have finished your trial, you will be released back into the wild and are free to try again !

    ⟡ by making an entry and posting it under/replying to this oekaki, you agree and understand that your design may be made into an official floc. if you do not want your design to be used, do not post it.

    ⟡ do not inquire about official artist positions.
    ⟡ if i am interested in your work, you will be invited via pm !!

    ...whew *o* that was a lot.
    thank you for reading and happy designing !
    if you have any further questions, feel free to post below or contact me privately.

    please note that users may only ever earn one such artist custom. other customs may be earned if hired as an official artist, but they will count towards your limit. this means that if you were hired as a guest artist before, created a custom, and are hired again, you do not get another. these customs are strictly limited to one per person, no matter how many times you are hired.

ONE SMALL EYE EDIT. Eyelashes and/or eyebrows.
MEDIUM FUR EDIT. Not too hair-like, but more fluffy.
CLASSIC HORNS. This is where their magic comes out of.

Package cats are open, so the Artist Search is up and running!


      the species
      arcanthera [ar-kan-theh-ruh] plural: arcanthera, arcantherans, adjective: arcantheran
      arcan- (from arcane) + -thera (from panthera) = arcanthera
      synonyms|| pantheryc plural: pantheryx

      xxxx1. a fictional species of big cat with magical properties, native to the domains of land arcana. can shift between feral/quadrupedal form (typical lion build) and anthro/bipedal form (walk on two legs, have hands and opposable thumbs for humantype craft). divided into the three subspecies of panfaera, pandemona, and pangelic, as well as the unclassed panneutroid.


      arcanthera is seeking artists! show me what you can do and you have a chance at being added as an official artist to the staff roster. i'm looking for people who are comfortable with designing characters, making line edits and navigating the oekaki program, as well as an understanding of the guidelines and an interest in lore-based adopts.


      the guidelines
    • familiarize yourself with the rules of the species before entering.
    • familiarize yourself with the lore of the species, especially essential design elements and rules.
    • don't make a cover, post each entry individually.
    • feel free to ask questions or clarify anything, whether about the adopts, the designs or the lore.
    • enter only if you have sure interest in becoming an artist.
    • you must make at least three entries to be considered. there is no limit on the number of entries you can make.
    • entries that the community expresses interest in may be converted into adopts. by entering you accept this possibility.

      if you are chosen
    • i will message you about accepting an artist position.
    • once you have been added to the lines, you can start making adopts!
    • feel free to tell me any suggestions for the species, i'm still building a lot of the groundwork and have future stuff planned.
    • a community discord will be made if this species picks up enough interest.
    • you are granted a staff custom upon hire. once you have created three adopts on the main page, you may redeem your first custom. there is no limit to the edits, so long as they are in line with the design guidelines. future staff custom guidelines will be put up eventually.

      the design guidelines
    • keep my signature and the 'fake' sign visible.
    • be familiar with and follow the traits and alignments.
    • generally, avoid using direct, tangible symbols as markings. lean more to natural designs based from nature, or abstract patterning.
    • if the wings intersect the mane, erase the intersecting parts of the back wing to have the mane in between the two wings.
    • the extra reference is optional to fill out/customize/complete. you can leave it be if you wish.
    • any add-ons like shading/texture can count as modifications to the lines.
    • you have to come up with a passive ability for each entry as well. refer to official adopts to see examples of passive abilities.
    • fill out the form below when posting an entry:

I'm seeking some help with my foxes! If you're interested in becoming an artist, please feel free to design a few foxes!

1. All foxes must follow the markings guidelines.
2. A genome and phenotype must be listed on your entry(so I know you understand how the genome system works)
3. Do not make fake foxes for yourself
4. No art theft please
5. All rules for Hover foxes apply here.

Application form: (must be present on all entries)

Code: Select all

Genome and markings information:

Base Coats:

Hover Foxes can have one of three base coats. Which they have depends on their genome.

Red (AA/BB) - When in homozygous dominant condition, red should always be expressed unless combined with homozygous recessive silver. When in homozygous recessive condition, no red should be expressed. Reds in this range are generally orange-reds and can be quite bright.

Silver (AA/bb, Aa/bb, aa/bb, aa/BB, aa/Bb) - When in homozygous dominant condition, no silver should be expressed unless combined with homozygous recessive red. When in homozygous recessive condition, silver is always expressed. Silver foxes often have silver tips on their fur(similar in range to sable) but may also appear brownish-tinted black or simply black with no silvering present. The amount of silvering often depends on the parents. This silvering can be seen even in silver foxes with dilutions applied.

Standard Cross (AA/Bb, Aa/Bb, Aa/BB) - Heterozygous silver can be partially expressed alongside homozygous red, resulting in Cross. When both Silver and Red alleles are heterozygous, they combine to create Cross. The reds expressed in cross foxes tend to be somewhat deeper in color than the more orange-reds of the red base. The amount of red or silver expressed on the coat is dependent upon the parents and alleles involved(eg. AA/Bb would contain more silver, Aa/Bb would contain equal amounts of red and silver, Aa/BB would contain more red)

Dilution Genes:

These genes dilute the base coat and markings depending on the genes expressed

Pearl (pp) - Causes black fur to turn grey

Burgundy (gg) - Causes black fur to turn reddish

Amber (gg/pp) - Causes black fur to turn reddish grey, combination of pearl and burgundy. Lightly dilutes the red in cross foxes and most reds will fall on the lighter end of the red spectrum

Fire Factor (ff)- Causes red fur to turn pale orange or shades of yellow, only visible in red or cross based foxes. -UNCOMMON

Platinum (Pwpw, PwPw) - Adds white and dilutes/lightens the entire coat - UNCOMMON

Browning (Brbr, BrBr) - Causes black fur to turn brown, only presents in silver foxes. Brbr presents as more yellow shades of brown, BrBr results in fur ranging from pale brown to dark chocolate, can result in blue-ish tinted foxes when combined with pearl.

Colicott (gFgF) - Causes black fur to turn reddish brown

Radium(Special) (rr) - Lightens the silver base and adds white guard hairs evenly distributed over the body - VERY RARE


Hover Foxes can have a wide range of markings associated with their genome. These are described below alongside their symbol and rarity, click on their name to see a visual of each marking's range! Remember that these images are just the range in which the markings can be found, not necessarily the appearance of the markings themselves! When markings are said to be "dark, or darker" they should be a darker shade of the base coat and may fall outside of the given ranges as long as they are not oversaturated or unnatural-looking.

Required Markings:

Minimum White - Not associated with a specific allele, all foxes have a white or cream tip on their tail. May be large or small as long as it is visible and does not resemble dipped. This may be covered up in melanistic foxes, but should be visible on all others.

Extremely Common Markings:

Mask (MM, Mm) - Presents as black markings on the muzzle, eyes, face, wings, and legs

Unders (UU, Uu) - Presents as white/cream markings on muzzle, neck, and belly, as well as the primary feathers on the wings and tail at maximum

Smokey Unders (SuSu, Susu) - Presents as black markings on the muzzle, neck, and belly, as well as the primary feathers on the wings and tail at maximum. Can present at the same time as unders, in which case both must be visible.

Common Markings:

Collared (CoCo, Coco) - Presents as white/cream covering 50-100% of the neck

Dorsal (DsDs, Dsds) - Presents as a line of darker fur that extends down the back and along the tail, following the dorsal line. Always shows above other back markings and should be darker than saddle or blanket.

Sable (SaSa, Sasa) - Presents as dark tipped fur most often extending from the spine and down the sides.

Saddle (SS, Ss) - Presents as a dark colored patch that extends from the shoulders to the hips. May be solid or broken.

Barred (BaBa, Baba) - Dark colored bars on the wings, visible on the dorsal side of the wing and on the primaries and secondaries of the lateral side of the wings.

Tipped (TpTp, Tptp) - White tips on all feathers

Uncommon Markings:

Dipped (TT, Tt - Presents as an extended white/cream tip on the tail

Brows (BsBs, Bsbs) - Presents as patches of color or white above the eyes, much like a husky

Ticking (TiTi, Titi) - Presents as very small, dark speckles of one color mixed in with the coat color. Not to be confused with Dalmatian which falls in the same range but contains larger spots.

Tuxedo (TuTu, Tutu) - White marking on the chin, front paws, and in a patch on the chest

Rare Markings:

Whitemark (Ww, WW) - White markings appear on muzzle and paws, heterochromia can occur with this marking. Homozygous dominant genes can result in blindness and infertility

Dalmatian (DD, Dd) - Presents as dark spots extending from head to tail. Not to be confused with ticking which consists of tiny speckles rather than spots. Falls in the same range as ticking.

Brindling (DnDn, Dndn) - Presents as striping black markings mixed in with the base coat color

Very Rare Markings:

Vitiligo (VV, Vv) - Produces a white, spotted effect within the normal coat

Georgian (NN, Nn) - Most of the body is white with patches of base coat color along the back, on muzzle, face, wings, and legs

Marbling (Mwmw, MwMw) - Mostly white body with color being restricted to the wings, head, and sometimes sorsal stripe or saddle, as well as markings on the tail and spots on the legs at maximum. Homozygous dominant genes can result in blindness and infertility

Special Markings:

Opal (oo) - White brindling in addition to large white markings on the body.


Achromia/Albinism - Can occur rarely in any breeding and results in complete loss of melanin, gives the affected fox pale skin and pink or pale blue eyes

Melanism - Hyperpigmentation results in fully black foxes, some markings may appear as "shadows" on the fur

Leucism - Can occur rarely in any breeding and results in partial or total loss of multiple pigments. Generally do not have blue or pink eyes

Snow Nose - A rare genetic mutation associated with recessive red genes that result in pale skin on the nose

Piebaldism - Can occur in any breeding, results in white spots or irregular white patterns on their fur which can be limited to just the feet or can extend and cover up to 50% of the fox's body

Eye Colors:

Eyes may be any natural color found in red foxes. Shades of red/pink are reserved for achromatic foxes.

Title says it all really, this is the artist search for Tempus Lepus ^^

The feral and anthro lines are in there, the anthro lines are more important than feral but you can work on whichever one you like. Keep the fake sign on there though!

List all traits you use, if you want to use a trait that's not listed either message me or make sure to put in the description what the trait is so I can add it to the trait list.

If chosen as an artist you can keep your tempus lepus, as long as you have a ticket to match it's rarity.
If you make more than one entry at least should have some kind of line edit so we can see how you handle them.
I use pen size 4 to draw but I am very light handed so for most people size 3 will likely be enough

This is for artist try outs please don't colour these in for fun and keep the logo and sigs on there
