Quite simple I guess, just a "replacement" of the neck leaves for crystals and the antlers for crystals, too.
I also played around with the hooves and the leaves that are scattered around the legs, but I have no idea how or if that is actually possible to add to the lineart.

For the female Faelora a literal crown of crystals might be an idea, but I have no idea how to execute that and my sketches looked not good at all.

Mouse hunter trait 1 with G1 lightblue and M3 dark blue

Clownfish trait 1 with G1 orange and C3 grey (overlayed?)

I hope these look good ^^
The colors are of course placeholders-

I did mess up on the male Zolnixi's paws :(

Draeyl - Candlestick Mutation 2
This has been inexplicably in my mind for a while now.

Basically, stick a melting candlestick on the end of a Draeyl's tail!

The color of the flame is based on Eye Color, in the form of a radial gradient (at least how I did it). The source starts at the end of the wick and leads to a barely lighter color.

The candlestick itself pulls color from the Mutation Two slot. I very clearly did not do quite as much shading as would probably happen but I think you get the idea. Maybe having more wax dripping down would be a good choice? The following Gene could contribute to that.

Draeyl - Licks Gene 1

Ignore the "M1" label, I meant G1.

"Licks" as in "licks of flame". Just like the Candlestick mutation, this gene pulls color from both Eye Color and the color slot associated with the trait. In this case, (probably) Gene One. Could also swap EC for A1.

It does look a little bare, hence the note in pinkish-purple. Some little wisps could probably afford to be added there!

Hello everyone! We will be holding a Pet Trait Design contest for the 2022 Winter 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, Griffi, Kelpari, Luffox, Lunemara, Lupora, Morkko, Nephini, Ny'vene, Nytekrie, Puffadore, Qitari, 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 copy/paste previous submissions. Please try and come up with new ideas or at least alter your previous non-chosen designs.

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

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

7. 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.

8. 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.

9. 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.

10. 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.

11. The end date is October 26th, 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!

Contest Prizes

The following are scheduled to be the prizes for this contest. Please note, these are subject to change. However, we would not do so without a good reason to change them.

Prizes: [Peerless Avatar Token] x1, 3-Visible Winter Festival Themed Pet of Choice (2-Visible if Majestic) x1, Mystical Essence of Choice x2
