I can explain the black trait thing: that happened with all of the fall fest themes in 2013 in the first day of their release. They are definitely a glitch, and not the intended colours. As an example, I have this Sweet Pumpkin fae which suffers from the same rare glitch, but this one caught two days later has the proper theme colours. If you go looking through all of the 2013 fall themes, you can probably find all of the themes with this same glitch ^.^

I was a bit confused by the pink in the hummingbird nytes. I took a look at mine and none of them have any pink. So, unless the color slots somehow got changed when the revamp went in, the pink is a new addition. Not a huge fan of the pink, but if that is what the original designer wants, I guess I will be releasing most of those.

you know what that's a great question, where DID the pink a1 come from?

This is the original hb nyte submission from spring design thread 2019 (so the colours are reflective of where traits were pre-revamp):

no pink

here it is as recorded in Shadowized's guide (colours respective of new slots post-revamp):

no pink again

here's the pre-revamp one posted in the last thread:

which... seems to have pink eyes?
which is odd, since the three hb nytes that I own sure don't:

so you know what, I'm genuinely baffled where the example one that the update version is actually based off of came from?

Doesn't look like Bobross made any input on the last thread, so no word from their designer there

might make some hb update submissions later based off the original hb colours

current colours:

the current proposal (still no clue where the pink came from)

an assortment of us making up alternate coloursets

(I think the dark purple we used in M1 slot of that second one works better than the original m1's dark brown or the previously-m2's black? We don't know the reasoning behind why Bobross picked the dark brown colour for the original m1, but it did originally only affect moon armor and forest horns back then. The purple is reasonably close to the brown and pulls a little from the whole 'pink' thing, stands out decently from the body and traits (more than the black does to our eye at least), and is an actual colour many hummingbirds have so. that's the reasoning we're using on that. Storm Armor is the most distinct example of m1 colour

comparison of the three colours (I don't own any hb's with m2 traits, so I don't have any pre-revamp pictures of how them being black interacted with the traits back then outside of Krin and Fai's mysterious pink-eyed one)

beep beep- I wonder if the blue-tailed emerald hummingbird was the original basis of Bobross' design?

I also had some feedback on the Dusky Dawn theme.

I liked how petal markings looked with pink inside the design, but currently that isnt the case.
Here is one of my pets w the trait (no edit by me):

Compared to the suggested coloration:

I played around with the colors for a while, switching things around here and there. I thought the G1 color was too similar to its C1 and that G2 was too light.

current G1 and G2:

my edits G1 and G2:

Heres a few more to show G3 and mutation alterations that i thought might make things a little more 'dusky dawn'. The eyes were originally light yellow, so i tried that out.

My edits:

Just my ideas, im not the theme's designer but i really do like this one : )
