Offspring Update


Goto News Post

You all know how fond I am of COMPROMISES and insuring that you're pleased... so we've finally discussed the option of you may now submit your own offspring.

This option is only available for LBC same species breedings.

How it works is when you submit your breeding requests you are welcome to submit FOUR offspring .psds. They MUST look like a mix of the parents. Yes they can look mostly like one parent, as long as the other parent is reflected as well. They also must be in .psd format. If you do not send four different offspring and/or do not submit them in .psd format, they will be rejected and/or ignored. I also reserve the right to make changes as I see fit. This does not allow you to change colors or add edits that neither parents have. If one marking is blue and the other is pink and it's green on the offspring, it will be rejected as well.

All of this information (will come in better detail), along with the .psd set up, will be on the breeding thread made later today. I will make another news post when that becomes available.

Still Hiring Offspring Artist


Goto News Post

Because apparently I don't put any time or effort into making the offspring and they're such low quality i'm still looking for people to be offspring artists since the last news post. This has nothing to do with hybrids and you won't ever have to do them. If interested please send an e-mail to [email protected] for an application. The position pays 2gp per pairing.

Random Article Game 1!


Goto News Post

Let's play the "Random Article Game." That's where 10 trivia questions are gathered by visiting ten random articles on Wikipedia. I have constructed 10 trivia questions and the prizes include custom orbs, custom crystals, lesser/greater breeding coins, and even a hybrid shard for the last and final question! But choose wisely, as you can only reap the benefits of one question if you win. Will you risk it all on the last one? Or settle for a smaller prize? It's your choice...

Game? Come join me in the XAT chat (Talk -- Chat) at 2:30 AM.

We will play the random article game again some other time, if you don't win.

Thanks for playing!

This may not make sense to you, but it makes sense to some others.

Obviously for breeding purposes, I usually ask that .psds be sent to me to insure a better bred offspring for your pairings by my artists and I. The best way to send me a .psd is to make the edits on SEPARATE layers. If you send me a .psd with edits all on one layer, that doesn't help me at all. What then happens is sometimes the lineart shows up where it shouldn't or colors carry when they aren't supposed to.

I'll write up a thread about how to properly make a .psd as well as explaining all breeding information. Will be helpful yes? It will include screen shots of course.

I've only had this gmail account open for a couple of months and i'm already at 17% of my space usage. This means I get a LOT of .psds. Apparently, i'm not getting all the .psds people are sending to me. Therefore, if you send me a .psd from now on I will reply to your e-mail within 3 days letting you know I got it. If you don't hear from me within 3 days, feel free to shoot me another e-mail.

Also please remember, if you don't send me a .psd and I work from a base .png I can't fix your pet image for you. I'm not smoothing out your line art for you, I can't make your backgrounds transparent, I can't fix your coloring. Your offspring get made with the images we have to the best of our abilities. You are welcome to use your dawn crystals to fix the background and stray pixels and lines of your offspring yourself, but you are not allowed to change colors, or add or erase edits to your pleasure.

If you have any questions, please feel free to post.

You can have your stupid previous prices back on the Metal Custom Crystal... I don't care... I just want something to work on to take my mind off things...

Also, a contract is being negotiated with Yasu for an Aywas recode. You should be able to look forward to it in about a month or so!
