Hello everyone! We will be holding a Pet Trait Design contest for the 2022 Fall Festival! Please make sure to read the rules carefully!

Contest Rules

1. Design a Pet Gene or Mutation for only the following species: Aurleon, Draeyl, Faelora, Ferrikki, Kelpari, Luffox, Lunemara, Lupora, Morkko, Nephini, Ny'vene, Nytekrie, Puffadore, Qitari, Ryori, Sylvorpa, Vulnyx, Zolnixi. After you are done designing your Trait, come back to this thread and post the image in this thread. To get a blank pet image, just go to the Generator and take the image from there. You can resize the image to the maximum size via the image URL; the maximum size is 500.

2. You must draw your new Trait on the Pet. If you feel that your drawing skills aren't great, then you can include a description in addition to your drawing in order to help us better envision your Trait. If you are unable to draw something, then we are sorry, but there will be no exceptions. Your submission must look like it required some amount of effort to create. For example, drawing 3 straight lines on a canvas and saying that they're "new wings" will not count towards participation.

3. You are allowed to be free with your creative process, so it is not necessary to make it specifically themed to this Festival. Although, we certainly encourage you to draw Traits themed to this Festival if you wish to do so.

4. Please do not reserve posts. If you reserve a post, we will delete your post.

5. Please do not Ping me with your submission. Please only Ping me if you have a question.

6. Before submitting your entry, please make sure to scan the thread to see if someone else has already done something similar. Try to make your entry unique and if someone has already done something that you were wanting to do, then we highly suggest that you pick something different. If you feel that someone has "copied" your design, please do not say anything to that person - especially in this thread. We will intervene ourselves if we see something that's suspicious.

7. You may only submit ONE official entry for each species on the list. If you wish to submit more, then you can send me a PM with drawings of your Trait ideas. However, all PM'd entries that are sent to me will not count for prizes. To clarify, an entry can encompass multiple Trait Slots. As an example, say that your entry is a Butterfly set for a certain species. Your entry can include Butterfly Wings, Butterfly Antennae, Butterfly Armor, etc. Species are all different with their Trait Slots, so we're looking more at design ideas and not strictly Trait Slot submissions.

8. IMPORTANT: By participating in this contest and submitting your designs to us, you agree that we, Sylestia Games LLC, will retain full rights to your submission to use as we see fit for the purposes of and Sylestia Games LLC. You will not receive any royalties or reimbursement from us if we decide to use your designs, or otherwise. Any designs that we pick will be recreated from scratch by our art team; we will only be using your submission as a reference for said artwork. We reserve the right to alter your design in any way that we see fit and are not obligated to adhere to any specific depictions or descriptions that are provided.

9. DO NOT comment on someone's entry unless you have something nice to say. If someone copies your entry, then have faith in us that we will determine the correct winner. Please do not fight over entries. If we see anyone doing this in the thread, then whoever is fighting will be disqualified and potentially receive a Forum Strike.

10. The end date is September 18th, 2022 at 11:59 PM server. After that, there is no guarantee that we will see your entry and the thread will be locked once designs are picked.

Important Copyright Infringement Notice

We are very aware that it's typical to use Google and/or other providers to search for ideas when designing artwork. However, it is extremely important that all of your submissions are created entirely by you and are not copied from another's work. If you are using other artwork as a reference, please ensure that your submission is changed sufficiently to be clear and obvious that it is indeed your work. This is extremely important, not just for ethical reasons, but also for legal reasons when we are implementing something onto our site. Thank you!

Rose flower for Faeloras

Also added a G2 Trait. Glowing side spots/freckles

There're 3 or 4 traits in this Nyt pic. The iridescent, sparkle/glitter petal wings in purple with a different hue tip to make it multicolor(just like the Feathered Crystal Wings that Vulnyx has). Then there's the Blue/green G1 that is a mix of two colors to create a dynamic effect. The lines are clusters of dots basically, and the solid parts have inverted dots. The Pink/orange is the G2 version of the G1.

Monster of the Deep Kelpari mutations(resubmit)

-Double fins with fin collar
-Rocky protrusions and monstrous tail fin
-Extra eyes and spike teeth

Zolnixi(resubmit)So, I really like the bulbori G2 tiger's eye effect and so this is inspired by the glass coloring look. This would be a G3 where the nixi is supposed to look like they're cracking and the spots underneath where pieces "fell off" would have that cool glass coloration of the G2 bulb I mentioned. TBH I would like this trait to be on every sylesti, lol.

Half bird half insect idea. Second pair of wings, butterfly-inspired design, change in the head and tail extensions. The wings and extensions could be semi-transparent? The more sparkle/glimmer/shiny the better

Cracked Ryori, "Fissures". Whole body cracks with smoke/light shooting from it.


Two Genes for Nephini. The purple could be a G1 or G3? The pink is a G2

A Qitari Design, the mane, tail and leg poofs inspired by Vanner horses and the ribbons/scarfs are sort of a dancer outfit for them.

So first, we have a "cat-fish" kelpari trait set. I thought it would be funny. Like the kirin set, it only appears in M2 and M3.

I apologize for the formatting strangeness, Imgur is refusing to work with me today.

Next is Water Ripples on G2 for the Vulnyx. Not only does it look kinda cool, it also provides an alternative to magma runes appearing on other pets.

Then again, the Dwarrow set for the Qitari. I just think it's fun and funky, and there's no traits involving dwarves yet.

Finally, my masterpiece for the season- the Night Rider traits for the faelora! I was inspired by the headless horseman, so here we are! I have the male with the G2 and G3 traits first.

Next is the male again, but now with the M1, M2, and M3 traits.

Then the female in different colors, with G2, M1, M2 and M3! This is so y'all can see both the gender differences and how the G2 interacts with the Mutations.
