Hello everyone! We will be holding design contests once again for the 2019 Spring Festival (Coming in April)! Please make sure to read the rules carefully!


1. Design a pet gene or mutation for only the following species: Aurleon, Draeyl, Ferrikki, Aeridini, Kelpari, Luffox, Lunemara, Lupora, Morkko, Nephini, Ny'vene, 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 page 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 the trait on the pet. If you feel that your drawing skills aren't great, then along with your drawing you can include a description to better help us envision your mutation. If you are unable to draw something, then I am sorry, there will be no exceptions.

3. You are allowed to be free with your creative process, so it is not necessary to make it Spring themed.

4. Please do not reserve posts. If you reserve a post I 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 done something similar. Try to make your entry unique and if someone has already done something that you were wanting to do...then I highly suggest you pick something different. If you feel someone has "copied" your design, do not say anything to that person - especially in this thread.

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 idea. However all PMed entries that are sent to me will not count for prizes. To clarify, an entry can encompass multiple Trait Slots. As an example, say 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. The end date is April 6th 2019 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.


I am very aware that it's typical to use google to search for ideas when designing things. However, it is extremely important that if someone happens to be referencing another person's artwork, it should not be possible to google it and find exactly what was used as reference. Please make sure to change it enough and be creative enough that you're making it your own design. This is extremely important not just for ethical reasons but also for legal reasons when we're implementing something onto our site. Thank you! =)


All entries that are picked will have the trait created and the designers will receive a Mystical Essence of their choice. Everyone that participates will also receive a participation prize.

Don't 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 I see anyone doing this in the thread then whoever is fighting will be disqualified.

All Participants

Prizes: [Fabled Seed Pouch] x1, [Premium Fertilizer Bag] x2, [Decorated Eggs] x500

Should we do a male and female variant if they differ depending on gender?

A Kelpari with salmon!
This trait is a blanket that goes down there back, several larger sparse round dots along it, with smaller denser speckling of spots as the marking meets the body.

A Drae with Chameleon!
A long design that emphases the eyes and swoops up to the crest punctuated by a secondary color. It also has long tubal stripes, with spots. The tail also has a fine detail using the secondary shade!

A Aurleon with Cheeky / Cockatiel!

This Aur has a near solidly colored head with it's secondary color, and it's base has a nice round cheek marking! It's tertiary feathers are solidly colored, while streaks of the two decorate the tail. A small detail of a round marking matching it's cheeks are in the ear feather fluffies!

Rhinelander on the Bulbori!

This is based on the rhinelander rabbit breed markings! It includes two colors mottled around the eyes, ears, spine and top of the tail. The nose and mouth have a distinct "Butterfly" marking that's unique to the breed! We also get to enjoy dimples and eyebrow markings in a solid color on the face.


Royal Gifts

Fur collar

Floppy Ears

@Faiona, I think that the "only these species" list is from the winter fest- it has Griffi rather than Aeridini listed.

Aeridini- Emperor Penguin

Aurleon- Flourishing Armor

Draeyl- Leaf wings

Ferrikki- Lightning Trace/ Lightning Crackle

Kelpari- Pondweed Mane

(Of course, Kelpari do have the Kelp Mane, but Kelp Mane always struck is as a rather busy trait- it's wiggling all over the place, there are shiny-sparkly bits, the water mane is present.
This is intended to be... not busy. Maybe just two colours, or maybe a little two-colour gredation on the flowers but not the leaves kinda thing.)

Luffox- Striped Possum

Lunemara- Stripes

Lupora- Ancient Jewelry

Morkko- Barred Bandicoot

(1 2)

Nephini- Tiger Stripes

(because I Still think nephs need them some tiger stripes)

Ny'vene- Mane

Puffadore- Komainu Markings

Qitari- Heraldic/ Herald's Garb

Sylvorpa- Salamander Crest

(based on the male crested salamander 1 2 3 4)

Vulnyx- Feathered Jewelry

Zolnixi- Pied Bat

Sylvorpa Paint! Probably would go in Gene 1, I believe. Based off the Zolnixi/Vulnyx gene Paint

Here are my Spring Fest Pet Trait entries. I look forward to seeing everyone else's~

Water Spirit:
I wanted to give the Aurleon an aquatic feel.

Astral Wings:
This is one I am reentering. It is a set of wings based off of the Astral Armor and Helm for the Draeyl.

Flame Crest:
I thought a nice flame would suit the Flame Runes trait.

Cosmic Essence:
There are some cosmic energies with stars in it swirling around the Griffi.

Cosmic Mantle:
On the chest is a stone with a star inside. There is a metal loop around the neck which has engravings on it. There is also supposed to be a metal crescent moon around each shoulder blade which also has engravings on it. The pinky red stuff coming off of the loop and crescent moons is supposed to be cosmic energy with stars in it.

Phoenix Wings:
The golden feathers form the arm of the wing and out from the feathers come flames.

Solar Wings:
I got the idea from native sun art. I though, with a name like "Lune", it would be nice to throw some sun/moon references in there. The wings are supposed to be transparent.

Spiritual Runes:
I thought a nice spiritual vibe would suit the Lupora as wolves are often seen in a spiritual way.

Shadow/Ephemeral Familiars:
The Morkko has little familiars(drawn like hummingbirds) flying around it, but they look hazy or shadow like.

Sun/Solar Runes/Markings:
The Nephini has the Sun Armor Mutation, so I though it would be nice to have a gene that would go well with it.

Cosmic/Nebula/Starry Essence:
There are a few nice star/space themed traits for the Ny'vene, so I thought an essence mutation based off of the same thing would be nice. The pink and blue areas are like nebulas, with stars in them.

Glowing/Firefly Horns:
The Puffadore is sporting a pair of horns with glowing parts on it that would resemble the glow of a firefly.

Rainbow Essence:
The Qitari has a couple of rainbow traits, so I thought a Rainbow Essence mutation would go well with them.

Storm Guardian Wings:
The Sylvorpa has a pair of dragon like wings made out of water. In them course lightening bolts.

Starfire Runes:
This is a gene design to go with the Starfire Mutation set~

This mutation is based off of the Yokai in Japanese lore called Kamaitachi. In this mutation, I have given the Zolnixi a sickle coming out of its tail and one sickle coming out of each of its legs.

Just to clarify!
Is this contest for both genes and mutations? :)

I'm sorry to bother you, but this is my first time doing this, and I'm not quite sure how to put external images in threads. I made a design in Paint, but I don't know how to transfer the image. Again, sorry to bother you.
