What kind of markings do you want to see?
« on: June 16, 2014, 06:47:16 PM »
New models - new markings! For the re-vamp, we're making completely new markings and we want your opinions.
What kind of thing are we looking for?
For this, please do not suggest markings on well-known characters, (e.g. Okami) since in this re-vamp, we are reducing copyrighted content.
Markings for our feline + canine models!

Realistic, creative, whatever! What would be nice is realistic animal markings, apart from the obvious Cheetah, Cougar etc (e.g less obvious animals). The staff willing to do markings will (of course) use their own creativity, but we would love some community input. If you like, you can even create some sketches for us!
PLANNED MARKINGS
Staff who are doing markings, feel free to edit. Please assign your names next to the markings if you will take it up or PM me!

Well, for those of us who want to get creative, I'd suggest folks who want to use a nice feather pattern to their advantage.

For Example (These are links);
Spotted owl feathers
Peregrine Falcon striping and mask
Barn owl feathers (Spotting)


And maybe a fish patterns if you want some ideas.
Mandarinfish
Powder Blue Surgeonfish
Blue Damselfish (Notice the stripe between the eyes)


Just some ideas and suggestions. A few unique markings based off of non-mammalian animals can really help with the creativity, ya know?

Hmm well if it is possible I'd absolutely /love/ to see one sided splotch markings on the face like this: http://www.nebcr.org/images/LooksSpeckledFunny.jpg
Oh and Panda splotch face markings! I've always adored dogs that have those.

I would like to see the merle/fullbody markings blend in more smoothly with the head markings. c: That, or for them to have a matching headmarking specifically to go with them.

Just a little peeve of mine. XD

What about a body marking where there's spots everywhere and has a heart-shaped marking on the rump, for both the canine and feline model?

I also have a few suggestions: Is it possible to make a mane optional for the cat head? Also, I was wondering if you could make a 2 marking option. Like, you could have two different kinds of markings on you that are different colors...you get what I'm saying?

Thank you for your suggestions! They have been added to the list.

@ chiboo ♥ -

Aaa, I see this idea comes from your character. I'll add the spotty option, but I will not add the love heart, since you can get a preset.

There will be manes, aye. And I was thinking about this not long ago, it would be very nice!

Was thinking mane markings...? May sound stupid, but like, highlights? That we could color, of course. And maybe we could pick the texture of our fur which would affect the markings?

Ok, my markings suggestion is stripes on the back going down into the very outside of underbelly? Starting from the back, like in the picture that says 'last moon' on it at the top? Always wanted that.

Sorry went a little off-topic at the top, just always wanted that.

War paint probably ties in with the indian stuff, but I'd love to see some stuff like this: http://d1vr6n66ssr06c.cloudfront.net/wp-content/uploads/2013/02/Turisas-by-Rob-Orthen.jpg

How about...
Corpsepaint like in Black Metal?

Turkish Van cat marks? I know it's not a well known breed, but they could be used for other things, too.

Both models for the first two, but probably feline only for the last.

I'm so excited for these omg.

As Chiboo said, I think having layered markings would be wonderful. What if you wanted cheetah spots with toeless socks? Maybe additional 'layers' could even be earned through quests or number of forum posts. Although a limit to the layers would probably be a good thing to have in place. It would be amazing personally to be able to do that, granted I wouldn't know how difficult it would be to code/add to the game.
Anyway, as far as markings goes, I'm a little biased to my character's markings X'D But even if 'layers' couldn't be added, I would love to see some semi-transparent markings, i.e., a Back Splotch/Stripe with a partially transparent 'stripe' under it so it blends the colors/gives a sort of shaded option without layers. I'm also with Haruki -- I love to see blended, smooth-looking markings. Anyway, here's a list for easy-reading.

Stripes From Back to Belly -- Love this example!

Python Eye/Body Marking

Diamondback

Genet Rosettes

Classic Brindle -- either full body or mixed with piebald, maybe?

Face 'Cross' marking, Shoulderblade marking, Leg 'Bands' marking, Underfur Tail marking -- I am horrible at coming up with names for these X'D

Ummmm I'll add more as I go along X'D

I has a Demonloaf! Thank you Haur!

I would love to see toeless socks, and the marking from feralheart called biohazard, at least the head markings.
Also I'd love to see rings going up the legs and fade as they go up. v:
And anything Celtic or something. xD okay.. If I think of anything I'll let you all know c:
-added-
I would love to see feather like patterns too, like My wolf Tatchit was like that would be awesome. Like not all the way feathers but realistic feather patterns on the shoulders, thighs, legs maybe too. And on the tail c:
