    I have been involved with making art for pet sites since I was in high school, and I'm 27 years old now. IRL, even with a college degree in art, I'm finding it difficult to find any kind of job that helps me to feel happy and makes use of my passion. It has been difficult, and I worked several boring jobs for five years. I was recently let go from my last job of 1.5 years (not for a bad reason) and I decided to come back here after all these years. I have been met with nothing but positivity, wonderful people, and WORK! I just wanted to say THANK YOU to you guys, and to TGL, for giving me a place to come to. I really appreciate you guys, and I think you are all super nice and fun! You are all so passionate, and you're all working on amazing things. It warms my heart and makes my inner little nerd kid happy. God bless y'all! If you ever need someone to talk to or you just want to be friends, please feel free to add me on Discord! Kerpow#4917 I ❤️ TGL! I need this bumper sticker, BTW.

    Smallix is a pretty action packed and so we felt it necessary to conceptualize character behavior. Its also giving us a better feel for what we want for our splash screens for the various releases we plan to have in the future. This is the ideal complete evolution chain of a smallix creature. Just by looking at it, you can quickly tell that we were inspired by pokemon and digimon, however, this is not a pet battling game. Our team has been prototyping a LOT and me showing you everything we have would only spoil the fun for you guys but we are slowly narrowing and refining the evolution process for all the small creatures. These animations is just me demonstrating that we are hard at work to get these creatures to be ready. Animation is a time consuming process, because of look and feel. We are bringing all of our creatures to life and we want them all to have the type of personality that we all love and hold dear. As a final update, our team has finally settled on the domain for the site and we've registered it. In addition to that, we had been brainstorming, tweaking and constantly iterating over the core game mechanic and I have to say, with everyday that goes by, I get more and more satisfied with it. We have to get through a few more obstacles with the game-play and if everything fits we can move out of the tweaking/adjusting/brainstorming phase and move to the polish and refine phase. All of these updates can be found on our facebook page: VirgilOne Facebook New to Smallix? Smallix is a semi - vegetation simulator with role playing elements. You start with a special creature (the smallix creature) that can alter the balance of vegetation in various forests. Altering the balance of vegetation can cause different crops to grow and can change the different creatures that slowly inhabit that particular forest. the different foods your smallix creature eats allows it to grow different abilities, features and traits to help you bring back balance.

    I've got two new pets to show off that have been completed! I've been having so much fun with my pet customisation system for these two. Here are their original bases/designs without markings: Check out more on my Tumblr: https://neverheroesgame.tumblr.com/ Slowly getting more and more art assets done!

    Why hello! My name is Tori, but I also go by Small moose the little moose! I'm happy you're here! I've been around the petsite scene since I was nine years old, I started out on neopets and actually met my husband there! Petsites have always been a major part of my life just because of how gorgeous the art styles are and how nice and supportive the people are! I would like to now actively contribute to the sites that played a major role in my life! It's always been a dream of mine to be able to work full time on just doing art and working for petsites, and now that I've found this website I feel it might actually be a possibility. 😄 I don't have much of a portfolio right now, I'm working with the Atrocity petsite team to help them with art and to help beef up my small petsite portfolio! I'll be updating this page as I get more art to actually post, but for now you'll have to bare with me! What I'm looking for I'm currently looking for full time work! I need to make at least $1,500 a month for this to be possible. Or about $50ish a day. I would like to be hired on for a site and stay with that site, but I know that sort've budget on art per month can be taxing for a single site. So I am also looking to be hired on here and there for random projects! I am most comfortable with 2d celshaded style but I am working on a bunch of other styles as well. Examples of my work Pets/Battle Monsters Items Minipets Other (Commissons, personal, ect) Prices I suppose this is the part you need to know if you want to hire me on for stuff! I'm not entirely sure what the norm is for items and the like, but here we go! =Items (100x100) $3 each =Pets/Battle Monsters (300x300) $25 =Minipets (150x150) $10 =Everything else, hit me up and I'll tell you how much the project will be! Even if you don't need anything but you know someone that might need something done, let them know about me! I do anything and everything!

    Hooo boy, do I have some recent art to show you guys! Lately, I've been getting the hang of Clip Studio and started to experiment with things like doing dynamic poses and perspectives as well as working with my painting skills more. Oh and most of these are personal fan art, but the one with the cyclops is someone else's character that I just wanted to draw. 😄

    You've heard the rumours. You've seen updates. You may have lost faith. But we're here to tell you the layout updates are happening in the very near future! Starting on May 4, we will be opening an Open Alpha Testing Server for all interested Users to participate in finding bugs and working out kinks before the live launch. This will be on an entirely separate server, so your actions over there will not affect your account in any way, but rather serve as a dummy account for you to play around with. The layout updates aim to provide a clean, modernised user interface and improved game experience, as well as large amounts of behind-the-scenes programming to make your IcePets experience the best it can be. We've prepared a preview of some of what's to come! Everyone is welcome to join in the alpha testing, and for your help you'll receive a Participation Trophy. Bugs discovered will be recorded publicly, and there will be special rewards for anyone who brings new bugs to our attention. Please be aware that because this is an alpha test, there may be lag and glitches, which is why we need your help to smooth things out before transferring it all to the live site! We appreciate everyone bearing with us this far. We know it's been a long time coming, and we have heard your feedback in the meantime. After the updates go live, we will be able to refocus Staff resources on new features and games for the future, as well as continued improvements to existing features and artwork. Everyone on Staff is excited for what's coming, and we hope you will be, too!

    Hi everyone! My name is Nicole, and I was a frequent user on virtualpetlist.com a while ago. Over the years I have worked on quite a few browser based games, mostly petsite, adoptable, and rpg related. While many of them never left my desktop, I finally have a game online that I am exited about and I'd like to share. Collectry.com is a browser based collecting game. To those familliar with traditional petsites, it's kind of like a petsite without the pets? Items are organized into series and are assigned a rarity. You can purchase a random item from the series in a "blind bag" type manner, and the goal is collect them all! A prominent feature of the site is trading and increasing your luck via gifting items. Any user can upload a series of their own too! In itself, I admit, it's not the most fun game to just spend hours playing - this is where the most exciting feature comes into play: Collectry.com is an OAuth2 resource and authentication server. This means that just like how you can login via social media on some sites, 3rd party sites will be able to let users "login"/link their collectry accounts to their own game. Once the collectry user is identified, the 3rd party site can access all their applicable collectry data, such as which items they have, or what series are completed. With just a quick check to the API, petsites and games can award items to users or unlock special features. For example, if users complete an entire holiday themed series on Collectry, they could receive a special holiday item on the petsite. Likewise, it can work the other way around. When a user collects a particular item on the petsite, the site can communicate with collectry and reward the user with a special item. The ability to directly purchase an item from a series can be turned off, so participating on the petsite could be the only way to get the item! ...and to take it even further, two petsites could even collaborate and interact! An action on petsite 1 could result in an item, which is then sent to collectry, which petsite2 could access. This could unlock a feature on petsite2! So many possibilities! ----- So... I'm looking for people to play test the site, find bugs, and suggest improvements! The site is live right now at Collectry.com, and is currently using public domain images for items. No emails will be sent out, so just register and sign in! Code was prioritized, so it's definitely not the most visually appealing site yet. Some pages may seem a little confusing due to the lack of good UI design. (sorry!) All of the data on the site will be purged at some point in the future before the Beta release. Possibly several times, so don't get too attached to your username or items or anything. Feel free to upload your own series too! Items need to be PNG images with transparent backgrounds. I'm quite proud of the user interface to do so (although I am aware of a few minor bugs/usability issues). Once submitted, I will need to personally review and approve it, so send me a message or email if I forget. I'm also looking for in-development games that are interested in taking advantage of the OAuth2 server, preferably someone with access to a developer who is willing to work with me to get it setup/linked correctly. I've tested it locally, but not with a real 3rd party site. Thanks so much and I look forward to continuing to develop and refine this game! I'd love to hear your thoughts!

    So, I've been posting on TGL and using it as a resource but I've never really introduced myself! My name is Virgil and I am a lover of virtual animals! I absolutely enjoy watching/talking nba basketball, and enjoy playing video games (although I'm not really caught up with what's hip right now). I do talk a lot in social circles (in person) but on the internet I am a bit more reserved. My greatest goal in life I hope to achieve is to someday be able to wake up at any time and not feel the pressure of having to report in to work so that I don't get fired XDD. For the past few years, I've been involved in this game project and boy o boy can I say its been extremely fun, challenging and eye opening. Having to work on an idea of 4-6 weeks, toss it out, rinse and repeat and working within a team has been an incredible experience. Though I do feel like this year, the project has turned a serious corner. Nice to meet you all, and don't be shy and say hello if you feel like it!

    Slowly moving forward, but I finally added in the bank feature and made some final changes to the night sky theme (I need to work in a pretty environment lol). All the built in themes will also only use Bootstrap 4 now. Next things I'll start on soon are condensing the myadopts page (lots of unnecessary pages and redirects) and adding the auction and raffle features.

    Hey, I've been around here before, but I'm back to looking for work again. I'm currently open for commissions or work on a website- I've previously worked on Verpets, Spielpets & several others that I've since forgotten as it's been so long. I can make relatively quick turn around, depending on what you need and I'm willing to try about anything. I have previous experience with tattoo designs, linearts, childrens books and some technical drawing. Unfortunately I don't have much in the way of a portfolio any more, but keep various things saved here, which I'll upload, or can provide further examples if you let me know what you need! I'll update this as I find more examples, but if you're interested, shoot me a message and we can figure something out. 🙂 Pet art/Overlays: Items: Maps:

    Hello! I’ve been on and off pet sites and sim games for the past 7 years, and I’ve dabbled between art and writing. I decided to mainly pursue art in the end (I will also post my art later on) but right now I would love to be hired as a writer since writing is also something I love doing! I haven’t been in any official positions yet, but I do enjoy writing short stories as a hobby, and I also did some writing for my own game. Below are some examples: 1) “You find an apple on the forest floor! You quickly snag the sweet fruit for yourself before the worms get a catch of it.” 2) ”You struggle through the dense vegetation, hacking at any grabbing vines with your trusty machete.” 3) ”This book looks to be ancient. Its leather cover is wasting away and, upon opening it, the pages reek of mold. It’s curiously empty of any words...” 4) “The sun has just broken the horizon, bathing the world in soft morning light. Droplets of dew flash on the field as you trudge your way through the clearing.” • My pay starts at 5c per word for item descriptions (but the price will lower for longer pieces), however we can easily negotiate • I don’t mind signing any contracts, etc... • I accept payments through PayPal. • I can do anything from short item descriptions to >5,000 words stories, as long as I’m given enough time to complete the work! • I write in British English. Thank you for any interest

    I haven't developed alone, it's been me and a team of rotating freelancers, plus the mods and admins to bounce ideas off of, but I've been running my game for 10 years and have worked on many others, and I'm always open to chatting game development! I just don't check the forums much.

    I'm developing my game mostly alone! I say "mostly" because so far, at this stage in development, I've had some help from my boyfriend with sound effects for the dinosaurs in my game. Other than that, I do all the coding, art, marketing, etc. It's slow going, especially with a full time job and family, but when I feel discouraged or burnt out I look back at where my game was and where it is now, and it reminds me it's definitely been worth it and to keep pushing on.

    It's been a while since my last update, but I'm close to finished with the auction system! So far it functions like this: Users create an auction with a title, starting bid, minimum increase, and pets/items. It is possible to select pets, items, or both A "minimum increase" is the minimum amount to add to the highest bid. So if the highest bid is 100 gold and the minimum increase is 50 gold, a user can only bid a minimum of 150 gold. I saw this used quite a bit on VPS game forums, so I decided to make it a feature User chooses an end date, and the auction automatically closes on that date, sending the currency to the owner and the pets/items to the highest bidder Users can end an auction early if they wish. An optional "snipe guard", where the auction is extended by 20 minutes if an offer is made within 10 minutes of the deadline.

    I hired Ibbit to do some pixel artwork for me. She was fast, professional, and skilled. She captured the very essence of the artwork I had in my mind and delivered it to me on the same day. I would recommend her and intend to work with her in the future. 🙂

    Posting this more as an accountability/development thread than an announcement of anything. Furry Realms is an online multiplayer RPG featuring anthropomorphic animals. I suppose the closest comparison would be RuneScape but without the fancy 3D graphics but also a bit of Stardew Valley in terms of pacing. It is a 2D graphical game (like Stardew Valley) with a focus on community, engaging stories that have closure, and having fun at your own pace. The premise of the game is based primarily in the mythological realm of Albion (where King Arthur, Camelot, the Round Table, etc. exist.) However, other realms are connected to Albion — all the realms of fiction and myth, in fact. Albion is merely the crown jewel; the place where the Storymancer weaves their magic and helps the heroes win. The plot involves a war between those who seek to twist the realms of myth and fiction to their own dark desires (feeling that the heroes always "get everything"), and those who seek to save the realms from that terrible fate. King Arthur leads the good folks for now, while an unknown enemy stirs up the disaffected. The realms are not yet fractured and in chaos, but rumours are surfacing that the Titans are climbing back up Mount Olympus in the realm of the Greek Gods, while in Victorian London, a menace stalks the streets murdering young women. A war brewing on many fronts, your character has many choices to make — but there are no "right" or "wrong" choices, only ones with consequences. Even choosing a side may prove surprising — just because they have the title of "hero" doesn't mean they deserve it... I had been working on this game for over 2 years, but foolishly I lost everything in a crash over the weekend and my backups are corrupted. 😞 So, I'm starting from nothing and working my way back up. This started off as a personal "game I'd like to play" but then some folks expressed an interest in wanting to play it too, or at least having access to a community that was a bit different from most games. Furry Realms is community led in most areas — it's nothing without a community, so there are deliberate design choices to include the community in the direction of the game, the species available, moderation, arbitrating disputes, and so on. While a perfect community is impossible, I want people to be invested and feel responsible for helping to create a community they want to play with every day. Additionally, I'm only one person and can't possibly have all the ideas and time needed to make this game a success after it's been developed. I'm not sure what else to add here — I need to get artwork commissioned and get the website back up. Most folks seem to post a list of features, but I don't know if me doing that would be particularly popular. If you have any questions, I'm happy to answer them. Discord at https://discord.gg/65RzGSz

    Hm from my personal experience playing petsites and such it seems that many look for stylized art with cel shading. On pet breeding sites with somewhat realistic genetics etc. everyone seems to lean towards (semi)realism with painted shadings. Personally I prefer to do cel shading because when done well it can look great and it's much easier/faster to do. Painted shadings can look pretty bad if not done well and as an artist it's a nightmare to replicate.

    If you paid for the work, then you have the rights to use it, even if the full commission was not completed. If you didn't pay in full, or haven't paid in full, then it gets a little tricky. I would regardless attempt to reach out with the individual as much as you can.

    Back when I started in the Virtual Pet community I was a kid and had no money. Now I'm fairly savvy with the server side of things and how to get free hosting on a few platforms and would like to help others get into doing programming for whatever web based project they're working on. My primary goal here is just to help newbies getting into programming like I was. I'm offering some free cPanel hosting here: https://just.ninja/hosting/ Also I can help getting started with cloud providers like: Google Cloud Platform - Offers a bunch of services for free (I highly recommend it) Amazon Web Services - Offers a 12 month free tier hosting Microsoft Azure - Has a 12 month free tier, $200 credit for 30 days, and a few free services These platforms are still a bit hard to get into for people without specific experience with them, but I'm happy to help anyone wanting to use them. Feel free to send me a direct message for help. Side note: I think this is the most appropriate section for this post, but if it's not, please do move it to the correct place.

    HI I've been doing avatar icons for some people in the last... what, 3 days? Here's what I've done so far!

    It's time for a new update, and I have quite a few things to show off today! -Site Theme- I designed a brand new theme for the site! The background tiles like it does because of my browser's screenshot extension. It's a single image on the actual site. I'm still in the process of drawing more art to add to the index page, and it still needs some fixing to scale properly on all screens, but other than that the final design is pretty much complete. Further in the future I plan to add a "light mode" for users that don't like darker interfaces. -Stockpile- I finally got around to adding the stockpile. Right now it just shows the rib item as a placeholder image, but in the future it may change depending on the amount currently stored. (So an empty stockpile would show a few scraps, a large stockpile will show a hoard of food) Rather than whole items, the food is stored as "points". A wolf's hunger goes from 0-100, so if your fullness is 80% then 20pts will be taken from the pile. I find this way much simpler and less wasteful than users consuming whole items and not needing the leftover points. (Then I would need to make scraps and all that stuff...I would rather not) When it comes to your personal stash however, you do consume entire food items. Well...almost. If you eat an item from your stash then you will waste any extra points a food item might have had. For example, if you're at 80% and eat an item with a 50pt food value, then 30pts will go to waste. It's much more beneficial to add your food to the pile, but some people will always decide to be greedy. -Pup 2.0- I decided that I wanted to remake the pup art since the old one didn't really capture the feel of a pup. This one is much more cheerful, while the old one looked like a deer in the headlights. While working on this lifestage, I decided to include some limitations. Pups will always have blue eyes and pink noses/paws until they reach 6 months. Once they reach 6 months, they'll show the colors they actually inherited. (for reference, they become adolescents at 1 year) The adolescent will be getting an update as well, but that will be in a later news post. -Content Warnings- I've finalized the content warnings for the site (as it stands). It's similar to Lioden, just without the suggestive/sexual references. The label itself is subject to change due to legal issues it could bring though. It'll most likely change in design before the site opens.

    With a new avatar or shall I say icon now? What do I mean you say?! Well, it is said that a long time ago, when the planet was still young, a tragedy befell Solopia. A star had fallen from the heavens one night and got lost on the planet's surface. The sun and the moon themselves mourned the loss of the little star, cloaking the world in a gloomy darkness as they embraced each other in their sorrow. But none of the Solopians knew of that loss, for those who saw the star fall didn't understand its meaning, nor that of the darkness that suddenly surrounded their world. There was however one creature that was different. They were small and meek, living close to the ground and with no special abilities to match any of the other beings on the planet, except for one, long pointed ears that gave them exceptional hearing. For you see, ever since the star had fallen the creature had heard its crying far in the distance. The creature knew that to stop the gloom they would have to find the source of the crying, and so they went on the long journey to find the star. The creature had to face many challenges, from dangerous predators to tricky terrain, but eventually after weeks of traveling they reached their destination deep inside a jungle. Hidden beneath the tall trees and overgrown plants lay a newly formed crater and inside it was the little star. The creature was able to comfort the star and clutching it tightly to their chest the creature started climbing the tallest tree in the area, high up to its crown where both of them called out to the sky. Hearing those calls the moon and the sun descended and were overjoyed to be reunited with the star. "You have done us a great service, young one." The sun spoke. "Ask for whatever reward you wish, and we shall grant it." Said the moon. The creature thought long and hard about what they wanted before voicing their wish. "I am but a humble creature, there's nothing much to me. But I've admired many of the other beings of this planet and would wish to be more like them." "Speak your terms then." Said the sun. "I wish to be tall, so that I may easier reach the fruits of trees, and see what lies further ahead of me." "It is done." Spoke the moon. "What else?" "I wish I could change my coat and always match it to how I feel. I love the colors of the flowers and the other beasts' intricate patterns, but mine were always so dull, you see." "It is done." The sun said. "With this blessing you have not just been granted a single pelt, but also the knowledge to craft many more from all kinds of materials and colors, so you may always change it as you please. Anything else?" "Yes, one last wish, I've always envied the songs of the birds. I wish to be able to make the music they do, and mimic sounds as easily." "It is done." Said the moon once more. "But still you are not the strongest, don't you wish any natural weapons to defend yourself or fight for territory?" "No." Said the creature. "I only wish for peace, and I've already asked enough." "As you wish." Spoke both sun and moon in unison. "Your wishes are granted." The little creature was then enveloped in a blinding light, their form reshaping as they grew bigger and longer, eventually standing on two legs, a giant compared to their original form. All over their body appeared soft cloths, draping them in dashing colors that could rival the jungle's birds and flora. And within their minds they knew of songs and sounds they never heard before, and ways to make even more. The creature stood there now, unrecognizable as what they once were, for they were something entirely different now, except for one tiny detail, the sharp pointed ears that led them on this journey. The sun then spoke up again. "Dear creature, may we know your name?" And the creature responded. "I am human." Build Your Own Human Avatar Here

    Here are some adoptables we sold recently!! We're doing a fun little thing where we have a certain theme for these new adopt sets, which we're calling series 1. The first was the sweets set, and the second recent one was the plants set. For these we have 1 taller bipedal design, 1 quadruped design, and 1 squishy bipedal design. We've also thrown in some pets for goals during the auction, so those have been fun to come up with as well!! ✨

    I'm a solo developer as well! I occasionally hire writers, but as far as development goes I'm the only one on my team (mostly because money is extremely scarce for me). It's definitely a lot slower, but I kind of like solo development since it's much easier for me to focus on the direction of my games.

    Discord | Twitter | Facebook | Tumblr |Instagram| Patreon July 2019 Hello, everyone! It's been a while since you've heard from us. We've been really busy working behind-the-scenes to bring you Figment, and we're excited to say that we're planning to launch alpha in mid-to-late July! In this update, I'd like to take some time to cover some features of gameplay and lore. And then I'll show you some new art. 😉 But first... What is Figment? Figment is a lore-heavy mishmash of a lot of funky-cool ideas, focusing neither on Human Avatar or Pet, but trying to find a balance between the two. There will be questing, exploring, crafting, and expanding the overarching storyline based on decisions made by the playerbase. Here's a peek at our landing page. LORE Fanterra (WIP globe) Welcome to the world of Fanterra, a planet blessed with latent magical energies, where all of your wildest dreams can come true. The starting land, known as Imagine Nation, will be a tutorial town. A very folksy little place, forests and cottages, but filled to the brim with travelers from all over. Very bright and colorful. (WIP town) Erabarrow is the second town users will be discovering, and is very much like a walk through time. Each NPC shop will be themed after the 1920s / Gatsby era, with a twist. Climate would be the most picturesque weather, at the base of a mountain range. Nestled in a cozy forest. Cross Crest is the third town, based off the idea of Alternate Realities. Would have a lot of neon and inverted colors, almost like a space theme. Could also be a potential hot-spot for magic, thus a town where many fae / dragons gather. Potentially snowy, in a valley surrounded by peaks and shrouded from the world. Those are the three towns slated for Alpha/Beta, but there are other town concepts yet to be revealed for full launch! Magic Referred to as Dawn and Dusk. No magic is truly ‘’good’’ nor ‘’evil’’, but is dependent on where the user draws their magic from. A third, more powerful type of magic is known as Eclipse, a mix of the two schools and only achievable through bonds of the purest friendship. This does not have to be limited to users / pets, but could be shown through relationship building between NPCs. There are leylines running deep beneath Fanterra’s crust, which is the source of all magic on the planet. Because of this, all species have the potential to perform magic, but dragon magic is the most powerful. Fae Fae are, like dragons, beings made of magic. And although they are weaker than dragons, they are more numerous. The Fae are separated in two royal courts representing Dawn and Dusk, each wielding its correspondent magic. Both have a royal lineage currently represented by queens, and they are near always in some sort of conflict, be it all-out war, be it more subtle. Each court is associated with what's called a "Deity Dragon". The Aurora Court is led by the Dawn Queen, short and chubby, androgynous but masculine-leaning. The Eventide Court is led by the Dusk Queen, tall and lithe, androgynous but feminine-leaning. Dragons Fanterra is their planet. High-tier magical beings, outranking Fae. Although not every dragon is attuned or even in control of these powers. Like Fae, they come in all sorts of shapes and sizes. Dependent on location and what sort of magic is present there. Snow -- Heavily feathered/furred. Medium. Desert -- Scaled. Large. Jungle -- Feathers are more vibrant. Small/Medium. Mountainous -- Feathered or scaled. Enormous. FEATURES Pets The starting pet options are a cat or a dog. Offered in "natural" colors, like Dalmatian, Calico, Red Merle, Black & White, etc. When you first join the site, you have the option to choose your “starter pets.” You may choose up to 2 pets; cat and dog, cat and cat, or dog and dog. You may not choose the fur type or breed of your new pet/s. Instead, once you make your species choice, the site will pull a premade pet from the starter-pet database. The specific pet (or pets) the players get is completely random, and some of the randomized starter pet “coats” are rarer than others. These starter pets will be only pets on-site that multiple players can have copies of. The rest of the pets on the site are 100% one-of-a-kind and individually hand-colored by a site artist. Ways to obtain pets include roleplay / explore events and contests. For premium currency ("Wisps") you may also get custom pets, where you submit a prompt and a site artist designs your new pet for you; or, you can breed your pets to receive offspring designed to look like a mishmash of the parents. Critters A pet for your pet, often found via dreaming (a random event). The type of dream your pet had (daydream / nightmare / etc.) would reflect in the type of critter they get. Some critters can also be found through adventure, through eggs, or given out as quest rewards. Each Critter is made up of a mix of two species from Earth. Other Features Adventuring system Quests Crafting Professions Breeding Human Avatars Collectible Forum Vistas Shops & Galleries Alchemy Library / Readable Books Weather Pedigrees Customs Stud Service Pet accessories Monthly events How you can help support our development For those who don't know, Patreon is a subscription-based platform that allows fans to monetarily support creators and their visions in exchange for cool benefits. For us, Figment is a passion project, and every contribution - regardless of amount - helps us add extra perks and artwork to the game. Consider supporting us here. Moving forward, we are making changes to the Patreon tiers so that you can get even more cool perks, without having to pay more! Changes to the following tiers: $10: Supporter forum vista Entry to monthly raffle for a custom pet Alpha key Alpha ribbon Fennec-fox-hummingbird Critter Paint of the month AND (NEW), (1) you may request a copy of any non-Patreon-exclusive Critter; provide a color palette / photo to inspire a site artist to color you a new Paint! OR (2) you may request a pet with natural patterns be colored for you, to be distributed among the site starter pets. $50 (now $40!): Pick a breed of cat or dog (ie: Pitbull, Bengal, Husky, etc.) that you'd like to see on the site, and we'll make it! We'll even give you a custom copy, colored to your specifications. Creator forum vista --- That's it! I will leave you with some more pretty art. 😉 Thanks, everyone!

    Hello everyone! I'm currently looking for more work to take on as I have no hours at my seasonal job during the winter! I've worked on contract for various pet sites in the past on pets, human avatars, clothing, items, NPCs, and backgrounds. Right now I'd like to specifically look for icon/emote work (like the first examples), however I am open to anything you might be needing to have done. I've got my full portfolio on my website, and other art/doodles on twitter. Portfolio Site ♥ Twitter I can be flexible with styles, and have attached a few examples of past work. Items are priced at $3-5 per depending on what your needs are, and other types of art are negotiable! I accept paypal with USD, and typically send out the files as PNG or PSD depending on your needs. Recolors are negotiable, I usually include 3-5 for free though it depends on how many recolors you would need and how work intensive they are. (Ex; simple color swaps VS multi-color fur patterns.) Please feel free to contact me here or use my email, teatimejess@gmail.com. Thank you!

    @Claws Thank you very much! I've been meaning to build a full portfolio for a while, but it's quite a struggle to get the energy to put anything together, haha! I am always open for PM's and I can certainly try- it's been a long time since I've tried my hand at anything avatar, but I'm always game to try. : D

    I've been working on a couple different things recently. The first is a full illustration for a client of a banner like image with their critter working in a forge and the second is a set of items for a different client for their game. Lots of work, but so far thinking it's turning out quite well thus far :3
