"Impish Li'l Zolnixi" trait set, with first image showing G3 "Smoke Swirls" (green), M2 "Horns & Thorns," and M3 "Li'l Devil Wings." Lower image shows G1 "Firefoot" (in light blue), G2 "Blazes" (in purple), and M1 "Li'l Imp Tail" (yellow).

"Smoke Swirls" were inspired by googling "smoke swirls" and clicking "Images." Those beautiful smoke swirl photos are what the trait should look like. I wanted a G3 trait that wouldn't overwhelm the other Genes. I drew the trait in green. In practice, it should really have both the G3 color and one of the accent colors. It should also have translucent areas, which I tried to depict.

Here's how smoke swirls ought to look (except in the Gene's color, of course)--

"Horns & Thorns" are drawn in gray, black, and red in the image, and it includes the claws. I originally created the horns, and the thorns on the hocks, without any jewelry, and I actually like it better that way. But I'm quite a minimalist, and most players aren't, so I added the little crown/helm and the anklets holding the thorns on. (If you want to delete the crown and rear leg anklets, or make the horns, thorns, & spikes larger or longer, I'm cool with that. Trusting the artists here.) I placed the little horns as best I could so they wouldn't conflict with the antennae on Butterfly and Comet Moth Wings. The red dots are gems. The white cones/circles on the front legs' bracelets are spikes. "Horns & Thorns" are based on any number of little devil/imp cartoons.

The "Li'l Devil Wings" are based, of course, on the wings of actual bats. The membranes are supposed to be semitransparent, like the membranes on Kelpari fins, but my drawing program does not do a good job of showing such things. So I left them opaque for this illustration. Because of this I had to show "Imp Tail" in a separate image. In reality, all the traits are part of one set. (Of course, if you like them, admins, feel free to accept one, some, or all.)

Bat wings as they really look--

"Firefoot" was also inspired by little devil/imp cartoons, though when I was about halfway finished with them I realized I was trying to draw something very similar to the Lupora "Fire Dancer's Mark." Basically, they are socks, but with wavery, flamelike edges and some little highlights taken from either AC or AC2.

"Blazes" is based on real animal markings. Technically, only the head marking corresponds to a "blaze." The purple markings taken all together are closest to the canine markings called "Irish Spots." But that name really doesn't go with the names of the rest. The edges of each marking should look more feathery than I was able to depict it.

"Li'l Imp Tail" is also based on little devil/imp cartoons. The flames on the tail should probably come from one of the accent colors and not the Eye Color. It seemed to need a little something at the base of the tail, so I tried to add some small, puffy floofs, but I wanted them to look fluffier than that.

BTW, all the traits need to be "fancier" than I am able to draw them. I mean, if I had been the one to come up with the Ryori Arcanist's Wings, for just one example, there's no way I could have drawn those elegant swirls the way they actually look on the trait. I would have had to draw some curved lines, try to get the basic feel of the trait across, and put my faith in the artists.

Anyhow, here's my M2 Sylvorpa trait, "Enigmatic Bubble Wings." Notice that the wings actually support the Sylvorpa from below. (Sylvorpas are magical.) Modeled, of course, after the way pet axolotls like to float and soar in their tanks on streams of airstone bubbles. My attempt to show the bubble streams, which increase the wing-ness of the trait, really doesn't live up to what I'm trying to make this trait look like. Basically the bubble streams form a vaguely winglike shape, while keeping lots of bubbles under the Sylvorpa. If you like this trait, please don't put it in the M3 slot instead of M2. I'm working on an M3 trait, "Gill Floofs," that go with the Bubble Wings and need the M3 slot.

Here's my Button modeling for the "Enigmatic Floofs" trait.

Rose Ruby Zolnixi Trait Set

Design Notes: Red circles are roses. Red hearts are ruby gems in the shape of hearts. Green lines are vines (Except in Armor image, those are ridges from over-lapping armor pieces). Brown/Tan short lines are thorns.

Tangled Vines - G1

Gene causes a design of tangled vines to appear on fur.

Rose Runes - G3

Gene causes rose design based runes to show up on fur... A simple two tone drawing of roses in full bloom would fit nicely.

Bramble Tail - M1

Tail Mutation- Mutation weaves rose vine brambles through tail fur.

Rose Ruby Armor - M2

Image contain a simpler version of the collar piece. If both traits are present maybe the collar would override the neck piece... Or the collar covers it up... If easier just remove the neck piece from the armor, I don't mind.

Rose Ruby Bonds - M3

Mutation contains Thorny Collar and Broken Shackles - Inspired by the Lupora traits, Broken Shackles and Spiked Collar.

Astralwalker Lupora Trait Set

G3 - Astralwalker's Star Runes + M2 - Astralwalker Galaxy Mist

G2- Astralwalker's Galaxy Tufts

M1 - Astralwalker's Galaxy Armor

Draeyl - Wyvern Wings

This one's obviously for M1. How the colouring of G1, G2, and G3 applies to it would be pretty self-evident.

It is not necessary that the wings be identical to the AA: Dragon Wings mutation. They could be redrawn as a new set of wings in their own right. I just used the Dragon Wings so I wouldn't have to draw my own wings from scratch.

This mutation acts as kind of an inverse of quad arms on Ny'venes, and I think it could open up some cool possibilities of Draeyl themes that are meant to look like babies of themed Ny'venes, where the Draeyl theme would be something like Baby [Ny'vene theme] Draeyl or [Ny'vene theme] Hatchling Draeyl.

Lunemara - Bumblebee (trait set)

Bumblebee Antennae

This is an M1 mutation.

Bumblebee Stinger

This one's for M2. Colouring patterns would still show up on this, the same way they show up on the upper portion of the AA: Firefly mutation.

And here's a G1 gene specifically designed for it:
Bumblebee Stripes

Bumblebee Wings

This would be an M3 mutation. Unlike CC: Dragonfly Wings, the Bumblebee Wings would be translucent, with the colour on them being only around 50% opacity.

Here's the full trait set together:

Morkko - Beak / Owlbear Beak

Colour could either fade from the fur colour to the beak colour, or you could draw a hard line at the edge of the beak and switch there. I think it would be really cool if the beak colour was EC.

I think this would be most apropriate on M3. It could be cool just on it's own, but I also think it looks great with the owlbear set, as seen here. Since the owlbear set uses all mutation slots already, I would propose having a trait on M3 like this if you think the beak is best suited to the owlbear set:

Or, potentially, they could both be traits, the same way there are multiple versions of other traits like feathered wings on Zolnixies. The second image here is only meant as an idea for implementation, but if it seems too much like a second submission, then please discount it. The first image (with just the beak) is my official submission.

Ny'vene - Hydra Heads

Two heads are better than one. This mutation is inspired by all the multi-headed dragons in mythology. I think it would be really cool to put this on M3 so that each neck can have M1 traits on it, and each head can have M2 traits on it.

Each head would be coloured the way it already is by G1, G2, and G3.

Nytekrie - Tail feather

I think this would make the most sense on M2. Colouring would be applied to the tail feather the same way it's applied to the long feathers on the wings.

Vulnyx: Sorcerer's Ice

M1: Twirling Mist
Mist twirls around the Vulnyx's legs as if from a magical sorcerer. It contains small, sparkling snowflakes.

M2: Icicle Spikes
The Vulnyx lives in extreme cold, so much that it has begun to grow icicles in its fur.

M3: Frozen Fangs
Nobody knows how this happened, but instead of fangs, they've become icicles?

All Together:

Zolnixi: The Diamond Juggernaut

G2: Thief's Disguise
This thief knows their way around town.

M1: Magical Diamonds
So many gems! A master thief.

M2: Sterile Bandages
Gotta stay safe!

All Together:
