FAQ | Breeding Rules | Commission Information Breedings are OPEN(if you do the litter), Commissions are CLOSED
WE DO NOT TAKE REQUESTS
Hi all, just wanted to put out another update as summer pushes on. Hope everyone is doing well.
Contest Prizes - We've got a document in our stash listing everyone's names and what contest prize they won, and over the next few months we will be working on whittling it down. No set order, but if you won something, you will get it from us, ideally before December assuming everything goes to schedule. If you want to make any amends to your prize, note us and we can change it if it's not already underway.
Litters/Breedings - As always, these are open if you'd like to design the offspring/breeding picture. We won't do the breeding pic if you offer to do the offspring - the way we work with breedings, the person requesting the breeding is the one to do the picture. So please keep that in mind if you'd like to request one c: On a similar note, please keep any breeding pics G-rated - we know it's becoming more and more common to take the term "breeding pic" very literally, but we will not accept these kinds of images and will ask you to redo them. Both artists on this account work in art professionally and on the off-chance a colleague or employer can link us back to this account, we don't want it full of pictures of animals doin' the do. We ask that you please respect that.
Commissions - These are closed while we work on contest prizes, but we would like to re-open them at some point after our queue is clear. Commissions and breedings both tend to get filled up very quickly so it's always kind of a toss-up for us as to which one we'd rather focus on opening up - commissions have more direct benefit for us, but we like being able to create offspring and adopt them out as well. You're always welcome to check in and see if they're open, but don't expect them to be so anytime soon, unfortunately.
Linearts - We put out a poll a few months ago asking how people felt about pay-to-use lines. About 55% of responses said they would be willing to buy pay-to-use lines, with 25% saying they can't afford them, and 20% saying they don't use templates at all. So it does seem like a good majority of people would be in support of this. We've hesitated on making any linearts before mostly because we don't use them in our own art so have never really 'gotten' the desire. What we'd like to do is a sort of 'crowdfunding' project for lines - we would make a batch of 5 or 6 different breeds and then release them once certain donation amounts are met. That way we still receive benefits from releasing them, people can donate if they want to help purchase them, and people without access to points can still use them for free after unlocking. Again though, it will likely not start for a while yet.
Other projects - We are still working on a few canine genetic/design tutorials. We also have an ARPG idea that we'd both really like to work on, though it will be a lot of work to set up. Some recent real-life scenarios has also left us recently needing to divert more attention into our normal freelance work/dollar commissions, so we apologize for the slight dip in activity. Ideally this will even back out soon. And as always, do not repost our artwork anywhere, on any site, or use our characters for role-playing/forums/etc.
Thanks as always!
