your rough ideas or full ideas have to be shown to me either tomorrow (Feb 22nd, 2015) or Monday! (Feb 23ed,2015) this is as a check up for me to see if you are actually working on your designs! QuQ please note me or comment bellow with a stash link with what you currently have done! Thank you!
Alright, so LavaGuts are my new closed species.Lately they've been getting some love which makes me....UBER happy and to have so many happy people is just....honestly life changing.
So~ for the little community which always welcomes new people, I've decided to hold an event on Valentine's Day~
LavaGuts were made for fabulous. Unique to each owner these canine-imitating splices contain colours, patterns, lava and shapes which all show the personality of each baby and what the owner who ordered it to be made. As LavaGuts cannot reproduce the owners go to special gene scientists within the LavaGen factory to get a lavagut custom made for them from the DNA and traits of both parents. HERE'S YOUR CHANCE! On this day of love, with the random partner assigned to you create a lovechild lavagut bae! As it's always been said two heads work better than one, so talk, yell if ya wanna but using traits you enjoy or from your lavagut and make something beautiful together!...............this was all said in the least awkwardest way possible, so please excuse Ningeko for her weirdness
It doesn't matter who draws the love child~ a collab is totally fine too! EDIT: YOU CAN MAKE MULTIPLE BABIES BUT ONLY ONE WILL WIN
The RULES:If you have a LavaGut already:
pick out which traits from your LavaGut that you wanna mix with your partner's, minimum 2. These can be from common- rare and can include the colour and pattern of the coat, the lava lamp shape, the mane, the tail etc... If you need help from ningeko to tell you what specific traits are which and what their rarity is feel free to do so!If you do NOT have one (please read careful):
1) Look at the species sheet provided in the references section bellow and choose traits which you'd like your parent LavaGut to have. You are allowed to choose either 2 uncommon traits or 1 highly uncommon trait. 2) Pick from those traits at least 2 which you would like the lovechild to inherit, 3) Discuss with your partner how to combine these traits to make the perfect lovechild~Disclaimer:
You are not to fully draw out the parent's design (sketches for planning and showing to your partner for discussion is allowed however)
, you will get it as a custom if you win this event! ouo if you don't win you can keep some traits as long as you change the species~What you cannot do for your lovechild:
-have hybrid features unless it's the coat pattern in which you are totally allowed to do that~ (aka no hybrid lamp shapes/ hole shapes/ head shapes etc...)
- No hybrid body types (make sure your child has only one body type, you can gain a different body type from both parents int he bellow options
- No rare traits unless the parent has one
- The design cannot be primarily one parent's traits or the others, it gotta be equal~What you can do:
- Give it a completely different colour scheme from both parents if you find it necessary
- Add 1 feature that doesn't belong to either parent
- Use a different body type from both parents in completing the bellow options
- Give it accessories and clothes as long as they don't cover the holes and lamp- else the child could get sick quq
- Draw it's human form (i'll be updating the human forms of the other body types and update this journal when i do)
- Respect your partner, get to know them, be nice to them k? This event is for love~ not hate uuu
- Tell me who did what in a note (What 2 traits did you use? What trait did you receive? Who did what? Where there any problems? Did you over come them? etc....)
- Check with me when you're happy with your idea, there are some hidden rules to anatomy, gene mixtures and certain mandatory markings/marking placements which must be adhered- else it wouldn't be unique now would it
- Post the design to either partner's (or both's) galleries, not a stash file please? you can tag me or note me when done~
- have fun~ even though this event may be awkward i really hope you guys have fun~- if you want to work alone due to personal reasons tell me, it cannot be because fo the partner's artistic skill or their race or something like that k?
Things That'll Earn You Goodies:
- writing a journal or poll about this event (+1 highly-uncommon trait or one which neither parent has)
- being a watcher (automatic +1 highly uncommon trait/ an uncommon/ highly uncommon body type)
-giving me a llama ouo xd honestly i love them~ (+uncommon trait)
This MYO-esque event will be judged by yours truely~ (aka moi)
How you ask?
-the aesthetic/visual appeal of the design
-have you got 2 traits from each parent?
-show me some progress work (optional)
-does it have a good personality? (you can't give it a back story yet due to me being slow on updating the lore quq i apologize, but a personality, i think even just short form would be nice~)
My main advice is think first for yourselves. As partners you both have your own unique ideas and things that you like or don't like in designs. Talk about it, if you don't agree, talking about and think of another option~
I'm sure every single one of you participating will make a beautiful lovechild~ and i mean it honestly.....and i'll probably just let all of you win criessssssssssssssssssss
When does it begin? 14/02/2015
When does it end? 28/02/2015 (aka end of February)
Can I still join? YES OUO

Feel free to ask, I don't bite. Even though I can't tell you what to make to make it look beautiful you can get my advice or ask me if your combination of traits works or not. Regulation questions?
