Just like it sounds. Design your own mothbat!

I'm going to run this until I stop getting many entries, probably. Tentative deadline April 15th. If I get a substantial amount of entries I will increase the amount of prizes available!

First place prizes
:
-Keep your bat!
-Icon of your bat!
-1000 pts
-Either a large simple pixel or an icon of your choosing. See here.

Second place prizes (I will pick 2 "second place" prize winners! Possibly more, if I have a hard time choosing.):
-Keep your bat!
-Icon of your bat!

-------------------------

(Apologies for the general horrible quality of the references. I'm using a mouse. :C)

Mothbat guide:


Two kinds of bats: Standard and Fox type.


General bat info:
  • Body colors, markings are unlimited. Any color or color combo is fine.
  • Wings are covered in soft fine fur, and can be a variety of shapes. Feel free to play around with wing shape to make something unique.
  • Tassels (The long ribbon-like "secondary wings") can also vary in shape and length.
  • Wing markings are unlimited. Any color or shape marking is fine. Most bats commonly have a circular or oval spot somewhere on their wings, but this is not required.
  • Ear shape varies greatly. Can be just about anything.
  • Feet are clawed.
Universal rare traits: Antennae, clawed wings (I am allowing rare traits in this contest.)


Standard type:

Body shape reference HERE.
  • Tails can be a variety of shapes, but are always short.
  • Ears can be long or short.
  • Manes are not required, and can vary in fur length.
  • Plantigrade.
  • They can't walk. They hop instead!
  Rare traits: Small, folded-over ears and bob tails. (I am allowing rare traits in this contest.)


Fox type:

 photo MOTHBATfox1_zps6fea9530.png
Body shape reference HERE.
  • Tails can be either long or short.
  • Ears are always long.
  • Manes are required.
  • Digitigrade.
  Rare traits: "Sabertooth" fangs and multiple tails. (I am allowing rare traits in this contest.)

------------------------

Please let me know if you have any questions! I will probably charge a small fee for contestants to keep their bats if the don't win, but I don't know how much yet. If I don't get many entries I will let everyone keep.

In the process of finishing another one up.  Had to have a surgery done today so I ended up with less time than I thought I'd have.  I have a basic sketch, but I wanna ink and color it.  Lol.  If I cannot finish it would my sad sketchy concept count for now?  :P

Thank goodness you extended the due date. My scanner was being a little butt!

Anyway, here are my cuties:
Boipelo
Agnete

If I wind up not winning, you're free to do with them as you please. If you decide to auction them off, they can be sold separately, but they do go together so I guess they could be sold together.
But yeah, either way I hope you like them! (I also hope their descriptions are ok, ehe... As in, I hope they make sense and give enough character. I'm sorry if you didn't want a description of their character, I can't really help it... I'm a character designer. XD)

Oh, the contest had been extended! I posted a poll saying so, I'm sorry you didn't see >_<

I would edit this journal to say it's been extended, but I can't currently edit journals due to a glitch. So sorry!

I finished one entry, just with flat colors, and I'm working on a second one if that's ok. I hope to have them finished really soon!! I'm also writing a character for the both of them... Because I'm a character designer... Heh... But yeah, hopefully you'll get two from me, but if not you'll get at least one!

Plantigrade animals stand on their heels. We're plantigrade. Digitigrade animals stand on their toes- like dogs.
