Competitions

For editable drawings posted as competitions with prizes

Forum rules
Note: This forum is only for contests that have prizes. If you just want people to edit your drawing, post it in the Editable Oekaki forum!
Reminder: Copying another person's art without permission to reproduce their work is a form of art-theft!
If you are unsure, read the full art rules here: http://www.chickensmoothie.com/Forum/vi ... 10&t=30437

    Entries for the competitions

For creating an oekaki contest :

You must provide at least one of the following which needs to be used in all entries:

  • A lineart (or part of a lineart for contestants to complete).
  • A proper background which features scenery and/or items (Colour-fills and gradients are not considered to be proper background).*

If you don't provide something for users to edit, your contest will be moved to the regular Art Contest board. You should post your contest in that board if you don't need users to color in something specific, or want to include art made in other programs.

You must also follow the other Oekaki Rules.

*If you have trouble coming up with a background for your lineart competition, feel free to use either of these pre-made background packs: pack 1 & pack 2 (regular canvas) & pack 3 (larger canvas).

For contests offering a prize/prizes to the winners:

Most people choose to enter a contest based on what kind of prize they have a chance to win. These rules are designed to protect players from being ripped off in contests which change or don't deliver the promised prizes.

1. Don't offer any prizes that you'll regret losing. If you're not happy to give something away, it shouldn't be a prize.

2. Any prizes you offer must be awarded to winners at the end of the contest - even if you cancel or close the contest early. If the entries were disappointing or you didn't get many to pick from, advertise and bump more to try and get more entries before you close.

3. You can't list any prizes that aren't definitely going to be given out. This means you can no longer list conditional prizes (e.g. grand prizes) which you'll only give out if you get a particularly good entry. Every prize listed must be awarded at the end of the contest if the entry conditions are met.

4. You can't change your promised prizes, unless you are changing them to something of the same (or higher) value. Any changes made must be accepted by the prize winner or contestants involved.

5. If the prize is a pet, you must link to the pet's profile page. This is to ensure that you actually own the pet and that there is no misunderstanding about the prize. Linking to pet groups is not sufficient. (New rule as of January 23, 2015)

6. You can't trade or auction pets that you're offering in a contest.

7. Contests without an advertised end date must end within 3 months. The end date can be changed or extended, but if the contest has been open for a long time without any activity from contestants or the contest holder than it may be forced closed by staff.

8. Contests in total may not run more than 1 year past the original creation date. This is the maximum amount of time a contest may run and they may not be extended any further. (New rule as of February 6, 2017)

Chubin's are small creatures, generally around the size of a housecat, which can be found in almost any part of the world (excluding antarctica and desert's). They are a vegetarian species, and their diet consists of things such as fruits, berries, nuts, and vegetables. Their fun and friendly nature has led to many being domesticated and welcomed as pets into family homes, although some Chubin's still roam the wild as feral animals. Because they are such social creatures, it is recommended to have two or more so they always have a friend to keep them company.

What makes this species so unique is a shiny, stretchy goo that grows from their bodies that is protected by a clear skin membrane, which is often patterned with different and unique designs. The goo is located in their ears, cheeks, necks, underbelly, and underneath their tail. The goo growing around their belly also stretches down their front arms so that, when leaping, it gives them the ability to glide for a short distance. This ability has been compared to that of sugar gliders, who also use their 'wings' to travel around their forest homes.

General Rules

♦ Please be respectful!
♦ You may make as many entries as you want - the more the merrier! I will most likely choose artists who have made multiple entries; it gives me a chance to see more of their designing skills. c:
♦ Refer to the traits when making edits to the lines!
♦ Please use the appropriate rarity for your entry.
♦ Please do not use more than two legendary edits. Other than that, go crazy.
♦ The dog breed involved in making Sharriers is always the English Bull Terrier.
♦ Please list any traits your entry has.
♦ Please do not remove the "Fake" badge! You may move it around the canvas, but do no remove it.
♦ Please do not make covers; we might miss one of your entries if we have to keep checking sub-threads.
♦ Please do not beg or whine; this will earn you a strike.


Love Doctor Rules

♦ All above rules still apply!
♦ Please use the Pup lines for your entries.
♦ Please refer to the Nursery Rules & Passing of Traits.
♦ Don't forget to add your rolls to your post!
♦ Use a random number generator to decide the inheritance of traits and amount of pups! Chances for both are listed on the Nursery page.



If you win a position as a Scientist, you...
♦ Must make at least two adopts per month. Please inform me of any inactivity c:
♦ May make one custom per month, if you've already made one adopt for that month. This custom may have up to two or less legendary edits.
♦ Can keep one of your entries if you wish. This will count as your custom slot for the current month.


If you win a position as an Intern, you...
♦ Must make at least two adopts during your duration as an Intern.
♦ May make one custom if you've already made at least one adopt. This custom may have up to two or less legendary edits.
♦ Can keep one of your entries if you wish. This will count as your custom if you decide to do this, however.

If you win a position as a Love Doctor, you...
♦ May accept nursery forms
♦ May make one custom per month, if you've already made at least one nursery batch or orphaned batch for that month. This custom may have up to two or less legendary edits.


Thank you for stopping by! <3

I’m sorry for the ugly cover and background, was on mobile.
So anyway, I have an old character that can be (hopefully!) seen here!
What I want to do is redesign him from a pyramid head to a demon/monster/experiment of sorts! I’ll only be choosing two to keep.

Two generated concepts can be found on the second post for ideas. They don’t have to be followed, they’re just there for inspiration.

End date will be April 29th, though may extend

Rules wrote:- entries off of Oekaki are accepted, as long as they have a cover
- have any questions? feel free to ask!
- I will be keeping the winning designs
- if you don’t win feel free to do whatever with yours
- don’t trace/copy/steal other’s designs

Likes wrote:- human/humanoid
- male characters
- demons
- demons with a humanoid form to hide in and a true form
- long/medium hair
- natural hair colors
- dark/light colors
- unique weapons (daggers, swords, maces, crossbows ect)
- unique eyes
- some scars
- horns
- tails
- accessories like chains, jewelry (bracelets and earrings), capes/cloaks

Dislikes wrote:- neon or very bright/light colors
- extra limbs and eyes
- female characters (I don’t really connect with them)


Prizes for the winners

Plague horse
Death horse
Famine horse
War horse

2013 Rare horse
2014 Anubis dog

humanoid idea wrote:Two narrow eyes study their surroundings from their thin sockets. A flat nose rests below, but it's the normal mouth below that takes all the attention. A thin smile reveals two large fangs and a flat tongue.
Narrow pointy ears sit on each side of its average, angular head, which itself is covered in silken and has two broad horns protruding from the top hair.

Its long muscular body stands straight. Two average arms dangle at its sides and end in gentle hands with small fingers, each with claw-like nails.
Its legs are long and stand straight, each ending in broad feet.

Its body is covered in smooth skin and its shoulders are broader than its pelvis, from which a thin tail sways back and forth.



demon true form idea wrote:A growl in the night, a whistle of metal, and suddenly you're stared at by a fearsome being of hatred and shadows. Two seething eyes stare at you with a dazing violence, and another growl bursts from its fanged mouth as it gains it bearings.
Two broad horns adorns its rugged head, which itself is scarred all over. A faint glow escapes the creature's full nostrils set within a compact nose.
Its rugged head sits atop a low, muscular body. Chains wrap around it, as if to keep the creature contained, perhaps the remnants of an encounter in a different world.

The creature darts toward you, its two legs easily carry its infernal body with a serene energy. A scythe-like tail whirls behind it, you're certain this creature uses it as a weapon.

The creature comes closer and closer, its eyes never leaving yours.

So I probably have like.. 4 or 5 characters that I'll actually use right now and I want more that I'll use so I can draw them. There's now a thread in the art comp. forum! click

Rules:
. You don't have to use the base
. It doesn't have to be on oekaki
. I will only keep top 3, though I may buy the character off you otherwise
. Everyone will get an entrance prize of a few commons/uncommons
xx- This is a one time thing, you won't get more for making another entry
. More than one entry is fine, but only one of these entries can place
. I generally don't care about art quality when it comes to characters, I'm more so paying for the design. I still expect a first place worth 300c$ though
. This will end in a months time from when the first entry is placed, you may ask for extensions up to a day before it ends
xx- This now ends on April 8th, 12am (midnight) EST

Likes:

. Fluffy
. Green/Green-ish blue (but,, not only these please. they're nice but not as the only two colors :'0)
. Simple/Semi-complex designs
. Soft colors (but not only soft colors please, it makes it hard to see the design sometimes)
xx- Don't feel the need to stick to blue/green/soft colors! I quite like dark bases with bright colors as they aren't hard to handle for me c:
xx- So feel free to do any colors, just make sure the palette looks cohesive n such
.Bee/wasp themed characters

Dislikes:
. Only bright colors
. I like almost everything so idk

shade needs love! [contest]
by Kageyenova @ Tue Mar 17, 2020 8:21 pm [Reply]

    hey there haha, look at me avoiding what i said i'd do
    i feel mushy w love rn.
    so have a challenge that i thought would be neat!!

      aight so
      GOAL; make Shade a significant other!

      I have failed in doing so myself, unsatisfied with many designs i have made for a while. kouta has 'retired', and for your benefit and mine, its best you don't know why!
      lmao so yeah!

      watcha gotta know;
    • this is basically a 'draw me a character' contest. i'll be keeping an entry-- or entries?
    • Shade is very much polyromantic/pansexual! you can give your entry any gender, and make as many entries as you like!
    • a full reference isn't needed, you can do a halfbody/bust, anything that works for you!
    • additional snippets of your entry's personality is a pretty big booster
    • and a backstory?? would be really amazing too!
    • Shade has canonically lived through three centuries, but his 'current' age is 21. < basis of age range for your entry
    • Shade is also capable of slipping through realities/dimensions/universes, so your entry can be anything/anyone
    • ^ but on that note, it is majorly preferable that what you create is humanoid
    • feral/anthro entries are permitted, but in the case i happen to favor an entry such as that i'll be making a 'human' version of them!
    • i also have three funky sketches in there that you can mess with / use as a base if you'd like jlfajslfsj
    • your entries can also be done offsite
    • you can use other bases from elsewhere as long as you include a link/credit to the original artist
    • bonus doodles of your entry with Shade would probably kill me
    • go crazy honestly, i'm v open w this

      Shade's types??
    • someone who can handle themselves in highly dangerous situations when he's not there... he ain't into weaklings :pensive:
    • redheads and dark-brunettes catch his eye... as well as bleached/natural white hair
    • tall???? tall girls n boys n others are so nice flajslj he likes leg
    • he's very much into teeth. pretty smiles. i'll leave it at that
    • being a jerk is not attractive, but being stoic is smth else :wink wonk:
    • scars are pretty
    • horns?? tails?? wings?? fins, maybe?? gills???? ?? scales????? just that extra flashy stuff is FINE lemme tell you
    • fRECKLES??? strange birthmarks??? beauty marks??? anything that screams 'kiss me right here'?????? HECK yeah
    • he's really into tattoos and other colored markings hhh,, so he aint the only one w the weird stripes everywhere yknow?
    • if parts of you glow like a nightlight when the sun falls, you're a keeper
    • you gotta like children. you must be hip with the kids.
    • alternate form(s)?? please
    • any character flaws are ay-okay but they can't be used as an excuse to be mean. Jerks are NOT attractive!
    • shade melts for that 'opposites attract' dynamic (he's black n blue, think; white n red?)

    honestly, go crazy!
    now-- PRIZES????
WINNER GETS;
1500 c$ , absolutely any 5 pets out of this group here, and 3 shaded fullbody drawings from me

but that's not all! if your entry really appealed to me, i'd be willing to buy 'em in c$! i'll name a price, you can bargain for higher, and i'll hope to work something out with you!
and for those i don't claim, feel free to keep them/sell them/trade them off! I can't keep every entry </3
unless...


    so YEAH
    i have NO clue when i'm gonna end this. i don't wanna drag it on for long but uhh guess it depends on how many of y'all enter?
    we'll see


    I'm endin this on the 3rd of April at CS rollover!

Welcome! I'm wanting to start a fairly large adoptable here on oekaki, but I struggle with drawing linearts for them that look appealing to others. I wanting a full on dragon themed adoptable, with more then one type of dragon, like a western themed one, an eastern themed one, etc etc.

I am asking for only the linearts as a requirement, given that I'm asking for more then one ^-^ and I would like a minimum of three from the following list!

List of Linearts

more might be added changed

- Western Dragon. (4 legs, 2 wings, tail, head, more serpentine)
- Eastern Dragon (4 legs, no wings, long windy body, fur)
- Wyvern ( 2 back legs, tail w/ barb, 2 wings, serpentine)
- Drake (4 legs, tail, thickly built, no wings.)
- Quetzalcoatl (no legs, feathered body, feathered wings, long and slender)
- Basilisk/Wyrm (giant horned serpent)
- Amphiptere (small, slender dragon with wings, but no legs.)

Bonuses
- more then the minimum
- clean smooth lines
- not rushed/ time and care put in
- anatomy somewhat used (can be hard for dragons lol)

hello hello! sorry this thread is messy, please bare with me ;v; (prizes are found at the very bottom)

    - this competition ends @ april 27th, CS rollover. it may end sooner if i find all the designs im looking for.

so for a massive world building project i planned to build on, i realized that a lot of the characters and concepts i would need can't exactly be made by me for one reason or another. this competition should be safe for many artists to join, as it's not exactly restricted to a certain species design. however, there are a few things that i'm looking for ;

  • characters with multiple forms. what these forms are is completely up to you. primary examples are designs that shift from humanoid forms into something more feral or monsterous, however that's not the limit for you to go with. you can do whatever you choose! however, this may come in handy for certain prompts below.
  • paranormal/supernatural designs. character concepts that could be used as demons, gods, you name it. space creatures and gods specifically are preferred, as that's the general theme of the world that i'm building upon. specifics of the world will be provided below. wings, halos, ect ect.
  • creature hybrids that can resemble real-life animals to an extent. something that's just out of the ordinary enough to be considered it's own species, however not wild enough to question the basis of it's anatomy. (e.g. canine-like, feline-like, ect).


in order to keep things neat and clarify, i'm placing a few "rules" down below.
some are solid rules, others are simply suggestions, but you should still read them. ;

    - you do NOT have to stick to the provided prompts or lists for character designs. i want to see what you can all do and provide with maximum creativity and artistic liberty essentially.

    - you can make however many entries you'd like. you will receive an entry prize even if you don't win or if i don't keep the design, so everybody gets something.

    - as stated before, this contest may end if i find all the designs i'm looking for. i will announce it before this happens, so if it's cut short and you still need an extension let me know. if the end date nears and you still need time, you have a week before the end date to ask for a two week extension. the last seven days of the competition is purely for last minute entries, and extensions will not be taken during that time.

    - you don't have to use the backgrounds provided, or draw on-oekaki. however i do ask you avoid using bases unless using your OWN bases- in which they must be on oekaki so i know they belong to you. sorry! :' )

    - you can keep your characters if you don't win the competition, or keep entries if you do get attached. however if you do keep a majority of your entries i may disqualify your entries as a whole; after all, if you make five entries and keep four of them, it seems kind of odd to keep making designs if you impulsively collect them as you make them.

    - please let me know what i can/cannot do with the designs in your post ! i like to keep everything on a storage thread or on toyhouse, but if you'd rather not have me upload them there please let me know.

    - don't be cruel to the winners. i'm not choosing designs based on quality- i'm choosing designs what fit the world the most or designs that are easiest for me to work with.

    - if you make multiple entries, i'd like if you didn't make a cover! that way it's easier for me to see new entries and such. if you're posting off-oekaki, you can make a cover and post the character under or post it on the main thread here.

    - thank you for joining in advance! <3


if you're interested in the world itself, you can read into this thread. at the time of posting i can promise not all of the information for the world is up yet, nor are the posts that are up finished, so check back if you'd like because things will be updating quickly. the characters that are involved in the story can be found here, however none of them have finished reference sheets and some things in their bios may be out of context because they haven't been included in the world guide yet. this is why it's important to check in on it! however you don't need to understand the world in order for you to make a design; if you'd rather wing it and draw the first concept or two that comes to mind hearing the likes/dislikes listed below, go ahead!

    what im looking for (if you'd like more examples, pm me!) ;
    • deity-like creatures and clothing. if going with the god theme, egyptian and greek inspiration is desired and preferred in the design. doesn't have to be a god; it could be an angel (not just your classic human with wings- creepy, several sets of wings and gruesome featured angels are encouraged!), demons of any sort, even designs inspired by folklore.
    • goblins, halflings, trolls of any sort, elves, catfolk, you name it ! think typical D&D designs when you're making humanoid monsters. they should also stick to an older theme in terms of clothing and weapon design, as the world is heavily inspired by ancient greek and egyptian mythology. mix futuristic and rustic, if you will.
    • weapons ! any kind of weapons. warhammers, scythes, longswords, whatever you will as long as they suit the character well.
    • designs that could branch out further into character development. for example, a character is missing an arm, or has burn marks somewhere, things in the design that would intrigue you to figure out more about the character to understand why they're designed the way that they are.
    • variations in body type. i don't want consistently perfect-bodies characters, things that make designs imperfect are what makes them unique! heavier characters, skinnier characters, muscled or lean, anything is up for grabs! just don't go with the ordinary, equal portioned character. characters with longer arms or bigger hands, even if it's barely noticeable it makes their design overall pop.
    • if you feel that you have a concept for a design you made, share them! i want to see what you come up with. whether it just be a short personality blob or even a part of a backstory, i like seeing what you all could have done with the designs for yourself ! i want to be sure these designs don't go to waste.
    • any forms! if a humanoid character has a monsterous form, or a feral creature has an anthro form, ect ect. you go for it! shape-shifting (of sorts) is common in this world and many forms makes lore expanding easier for me! ;v;
    • poc/queer/ect characters are allowed and encouraged!
    • for creatures more animal-like, please stick to more natural colors. of course, colored accents+ are okay!!

now onto the prize list ; (not final, will most likely increase.)

You may edit in extras or defects but please no unrealistic line edits

- Maximum 3 entries
- Entries can be redone
- Don't be rude
- Have fun!

Artist Requirements:

Rules for entering:
1. look at main page for overall rules of the species that you will need to follow

2. specify what rarity you made your entry and what edits make it that rarity

3. make at least two entries, one with line edits and one without

4. making custom lines for your entry is perfectly fine and won't effect what rarity it is

5. you can make them any rarity, but try to make them very different rarities (for example: if your first entry is very rare, try making the next one common or uncommon so I can see how you do with doing different rarities)

6. you don't have to put your entries under a cover, but you can if you want to do that (and it would be preferred if you did that so that things stay more organized, but like I said you don't have to!)

7. I'm looking for people who have the time to do this and people who are somewhat active on this site, so if you barely have the time to come on here you might not want to enter

looking for rat lines!
by jellyphants @ Tue Mar 10, 2020 6:43 am [Reply]

    greetings! as the title and image state, i am running a competition for some brown rat [rattus norvegicus] lines, for some rat adopts i plan on making.

    i vastly prefer realistic lines to cartoony ones, but i won't turn down cartoony lines if they're done well.
    pose ideas: (don't have to follow these!) ♥️ ♥️

    must have:
    - adult and kitten lines

    should have:
    - easily interchangeable dumbo and topeared lines

    can have:
    - paw and/or face refs

    alright with that over, it's time for what you've probably been waiting for, the prize!
    the winner of this competition will gain 200 c$ and 10 rare pets from my rares folder. this prize may grow!
    feel free to reply or pm if you have any questions, and don't be afraid to mark!
    this will end in a month but i may extend it if nobody enters or end it early if i see some lines i love.

Spirit Tails is an ARPG featuring friendly quadrupeds who have ghostly companions attached to their tails. With no set lines, each Spirit Tail is drawn uniquely! Spirit Tails encourages teamwork and companionship, just like each animal has a companion, we wish to help create friendships by having players work together in order to level up and progress through the ranks!


In the Artist Search you are required to make a minimum of two entries. Covers are forbidden, as I want all the entries just right here where they're easily seen ;) You are also required to leave the fake sign there!! You may move it if you need to, and you can change backgrounds, but leave the fake sign and signatures where they are!

Your two entries must include an uncommon or below, and a rare or higher, to show off some different rarities :D

As Spirit Tails has no set lines, both (or all, if you make more than two ;) ) of your entries must be made custom!

At the end of each month (the last day) I will announce who will be invited to join the staff as a guest artist, guest artists will have the entire following month to impress me and the other staff. at the end of the month, I will also announce which guest artists will be allowed to move on to full artist or nursery artist.

I ask that on your first entry, you state whether you would prefer to work in the nursery or not, and dont worry about changing your mind, in the last week of each month I'll be dming the staff and asking if they want to keep their roles, shift them, or retire. once you have been hired, each month is a new term, the more terms you stay with the staff, the better your payment will be!

Payment can vary, between special tickets, items, myo permissions, and more. The longer you are with the staff, the better your payment will be. Staff will earn and collect their payment after every two months. If you choose to retire, or are not made a full staff after a single month, you will be given a retirement gift. If you retire, you may not apply to be a part of the staff again for at least six months.

Anyways, sorry about this wall of text but it was important so if you skimmed it make sure you read everything!

Artist Search is OPEN!!

S.H.I. Artist Search based on this drawing by The Pirate
by The Pirate @ Wed Apr 01, 2020 5:00 pm [Reply]

This is where entries for the Artist Search will be stored! Please be sure to read all of the rules before entering.


Rules for Artist Entries
• All entries are FAKE, meaning that they cannot be used as real SHI's
• You may not remove the FAKE sign or EmberWolf's signature
• You may make any number of entries, but please do NOT make your own "___'s entries" thread/post. I will not be able to keep up with them!
• You must make at least three entries to be considered for an artist position
NEW! Please include a list of colors/markings with your entries
• You must make at least two entries with classic serval markings to be considered for an artist position (note: they do not have to be identical to each other; markings can vary slightly from serval to serval)
• You can work with colors/markings that haven't been "discovered" (see rarity guide & system), but please keep them natural-ish (for example, you can add markings such as tiger stripes, rosettes, marbled tabby, etc. but not heart shapes or other markings not found in nature)
• You may use any of the fur/tail options in the file or make your own edits, but please keep them natural-ish

Rules for Recently-Hired Artists
• If you are picked to be an artist, you will first undergo a trial period in which you can make 3 adopts. After this period, you will be notified about whether or not you've become an official artist
• Artists MUST follow the rarity guide and systems, meaning they cannot work with undiscovered markings/colors and they have to follow the guidelines for rarity frequency (i.e. "rare" traits only appear every 50 servals, etc.)
• Artists are allowed to explore/create "undiscovered" markings/colors, but they must be approved by me (The Pirate) before being released

    I need more characters and I have specific wants but I'm having trouble coming up with designs .n. So I'm gonna hold a contest!
    I'm not going to pledge a huge prize, instead I am going to buy the entries I want to keep! I have 477 C$ and a few older rares

    This is an ongoing competition since I'll just be buying designs that I like when I see them. I'll close it when I run out of C$ or I've gotten enough characters
    --
    By entering this contest, you understand that if you win, the character becomes mine and I can trade/redesign/resell etc. I won't buy characters to be fodder though, I want them for my stories!
    --
    your entry must have
    a place to credit you (toyhouse, deviantart, etc.)
    and
    a price range/what you want to be paid for your design. You can ask for specific pets from the group I linked.
    --
    I want characters for my sci-fi ish setting and for my medieval fantasy one.
    The sci-fi story is set in the present and there are things like monsters/experiments, forest cryptids, demons, and maybe aliens?
    The fantasy story is set in a made-up world and there are specific magic classes, dragons, deities, kings etc.
    --
    the list of likes is pretty long, you can just skim it lol
    things I'm looking for/like in a design (you don't have to stick to just these!)
    -humanoid or feral, no anthros (dnd style catfolk are ok!)
    -mad scientists!!
    -normal scientists
    -monsters/experiments (like glitchman)
    -made up creatures!!
    -"unusual" animals (nudibranches, caterpillars, fish, etc)
    -knights
    -wizards/witches
    -kings
    -deities!!

    -high saturated colors!!!
    -neon cool colors
    -cool colors in general
    -dull colors with a neon accent
    -pink and blue!! (not pastel)
    -purple and green
    -simple/easy to replicate designs
    -spots/freckles/birthmarks
    -cool tattoos
    -eyes!!!
    -shark teeth??
    -stars (markings, actual stars? both work)

    things I don't like/am not looking for (might still buy a character with these if i really like the design!)
    -normal dogs/cats
    -anthros
    -lots of red
    -red and black
    -most warm colors in general
    -completely grayscale
    -super pastel colors
    -overly complex design (i wanna be able to draw my own characters lol)

Design me an aquatic humanoid (please)
by Kenobi. @ Wed Apr 01, 2020 12:35 pm [Reply]

Hello there

I'm looking to get some more aquatic humanoids for the world I'm making!
There will be no 'final winner' - I will simply choose the designs I like and you can choose your payment.

Payment options (yes, you may mix some options)
- A pet or two from here. The VR rat is reserved for a high-quality design
- c$
- An oc or two from here
- Art like this or this
Likes
- Purples and blues
- 1980s clothing and hair
- Punk/80's Rockers!!
- Aquatic themed outfits
- Fins/Fishy tails/Gills
- Males (muscular is bonus points)
- Buff ladies
- Critter companions (nudibranchs, sea horses, leafy seadragons)
- Mermaids
- Weapons (spears and daggers)
- Pastels and dull colors
- Long hair for men, shoulder-length hair for women - C U R L S!!
- Shark teeth
- 'soft boys' // flowers, overalls, etc

Dislikes
- FUR
- Pink/overly feminine designs
- Aggressive neon colors (hot pink, highlighter yellow, lime green)





Here are the aquatic humanoids that I already have, but please note that I like a wide variety of designs and I don't want everybody to look the same ^^









Notes: In this universe, the inhabitants have human and fish DNA mixed to create these lovely aquatic humanoids. Their features are typically more human than animal, but it isn't unheard of for a seahorse type person to have an elongated nose to match its animal counterpart. They can have skin that resembles the animal, like the stripes of a lionfish. They typically have gills, and webbed fingers. But it does vary depending on the animal they're based off. BUT! You do not have to go off a specific animal, you're free to do any sort of aquatic humanoid, as long as it fits in the lists below decently. I am very flexible with my taste, so don't be afraid to stray from the 'likes' list a bit! <3
Also, the fashion of this universe is a mix of our Earth trends and more aquatic-themed clothing. So go nuts with your outfit designs!



Rules and Info
- I will try to respond to all designs i'm interested in with a week (7 whole days) of it being posted. If I don't respond by then, you're more than welcome to keep/sell the design.
- Once I buy the design from you, it will be mine to do what I want with. You will be given credit for the design, of course.
- I will add more to the list, but my brain is fried and I can't remember the rest

Add this form to your post please! <3
Code: Select all
