oo i'll procrastinate going to bed and answer some questions lmaO

What are your guys favorite original species?: uhh... probably the sergal, i suppose? idk blakrye's are pretty cool too but lmao like i'm ever going to dish out tons of money for a damn cat with an electric tail
Do you have an original species?: nah, i've considered it but haven't gotten around to it
What are you favorite type of designs? Like what are your favorite colors or themes?: i don't have one favorite ;; i guess i'm partial to cream-like colors though, looking at my adopt history...
And whats your preference? Like do you like humans/humanoids, anthros, or ferals?: human/humanoids are my favorite, anthros are cool too but not as good in my eyes
What kind of non-cs species do you enjoy looking at or getting?: i don't know what non-cs means so ,,, idk does it mean non original? like normal? bc if so, cats
Do you have a favorite designer?: no
What do you do with your adopts?: they tend to sit and rot tbh but i TRY to use them LOL
Do you make adopts yourself?: sometimes... but the lack of interest causes me to not do it so much.

I'm always seeing cute ones JUST when I run out of money or can't afford them
Like I've tried to sell a few adopts that I've made but I think the reason that no one wants them is because they're not digital :( bluh

@Sharkbait - CS means "Closed Species", so non-cs means non-closed species like your typical cats dogs, or open species like DutchAngelDragons and Sergals^^
And I'd totally shell out a couple hundred dollars for a cat with an electric tail :v

@Alice - I understand your pain, I don't how many times I find a cute adopt and I like just spent my money ;A; and for the traditional thing tbh I prefer digital adopts myself >.>'' but not cause I exactly prefer digital but I buy based on design and for traditional adopts its hard to see their designs and color schemes sometimes and you can't exactly color pick a poorly lit adopt and I also know for some people if its traditional they would rather have it in their hands as well so if you can't ship that's also sometimes a deal breaker for buyers.
Not trying to discourage ya or anything just some of the reason I've seen people say on why they don't buy traditional adopts(and art) as well as why I don't very often. Maybe if you can't get better lighting and kinda enhance the colors err make them more visible people would buy but its always hard selling in the first place >.< mine are digital and I still have a hard time selling.

Y'all won't mind if I just.. "Revive" this thread, right?


I've been wondering if I should make buyable adoptables, myself. I mean, should I? I do need the money for the future..
I have this "original" species called Kenolids (and a BUNCH of other made-up animals on my dA. But I've always made Kenolids more of a priority) that I want to now make purchasable. I introduced them on My Squiby. But due to the fact that Squiby really isn't that active and just plain outdated, I stopped making them.

But now that I've seen that folks can make money off of this I'm kinda like: "Holy crap.... o_o I WANNA DO THAT!" :'D I'mterrible

I've heard of semi-open species, but honestly-I really don't have much of an interest on CS on DA or any other site

@MasterDaye - I totally don't mind this thread being revived, I love adopts if you can't tell X3
You can go ahead and try, its hard at first though but if you enjoy designing then it don't matter so much.
As for your species you can try selling some of them, but it may help if you had more info on them and make them I guess "desirable" than just another closed species. Maybe try making some free ones first or do MYO event to kickstart the species. I'm hoping to hold some raffles for mine to kinda get them around more which will also hopefully bring in more interest and they may start selling more easier and for more than what I sell them for now.
Also at least from what I've heard most people like it when you yourself loves your species.

If you think you will enjoy then go ahead and try. Doesn't hurt to try, right?

This topic got revived at the perfect time :fox-:P:

I just got the file for my new red panda adopt! She was designed by HayPanda and is going to be one of my alt sonas. I don't usually go for unnatural coloured adopts but her pallete was absolutely gorgeous and reminded me of summer. I'm still thinking of a name for her though

@Nagi

It's almost as if I made this weeks in advance just for this moment...~


You can just... Ignore the missing examples part but yeah, that's a good fragment of what those ugly sneks are. xD

And as for desireable, the species itself is very diverse when it comes to having traits people wanna see (i.e. fluff, big eyes, chubbiness). They're basically the equivalent to rainbow sewer rats! :'D

I also don't see these guys as a closed species.. In fact, (I know you've probably answered this in the thread, but) what makes a species a closed species? xD

Free Kenolids are on Squiby. Ya make an account on there, click'em and grow'em up.

What does MYO stand for?

(Also, I plan on putting Kenolids in almost ALL of the series/webcomics I make in the (near) future so I guess that'll make them a little bit more than just: "Here's a pet. BUY IT. LOVE IT." At least I hope so, rn...)

MYO= Make Your Own (A custom commission slot for CS or Semi-opens)

What makes a closed species is it's traits, basically, what makes this species special or unique from the others can indicate the reason why people make the species closed. There are other reasons, but I'm too lazy to explainnn

Btw, love the designs! I'd love to get one in the future

@MasterDaye - Oh okay, I just saw them on the site and thought they had no info ^^'' They look cool, and when I say desirable I don't exactly mean cool or cute looking(Although those ARE more likely to sell/shrugs) but I mean that their not say a dog with wings, their unique!
Also what makes a species a "Closed Species"? Simply an original species someone makes and "closes" them off to the public. Only the owner of that species is allowed to make and sell them. Sounds like a money making scheme but I personally think for species with more thought into them, prevents them from being created an abused.
Also MYO is just short for "Make Your Own", its used for closed species as your not allowed to make your own of them willy nilly but selling, trading, raffling, gifting, etc MYO slots lets the person with the MYO slot create one in of that species as they see fit as long as it stays within the species general anatomy and follows their traits(as sometimes you need to pay or do something extra to get certain traits/rarities)

Thank you (both) for the information!

@BerryCake550

And thank you!! Yeah, when I redraw these guys (both male and female) I'll definitely let you know when I release them. ;D


@Nagi

That's true, it is harder for 'oddball' species to sell. :'D

Ohh, okay.. Yeah, I don't want people to steal my babehs! :0 But I also don't want buyers to not use their Kenolids. :I Maybe I'll make them semi-closed.. mmm Maybe not. Yeah, I'll probably make it closed.

Oh YES, I know what you're talking about! KindalikeChickenSmoothieandAywas,butsmaller

Yes thread revival!!!was hesitant to revive cause I didn't want to be the only one postin ;u;

Heres my new opossum baby I got from Zagan.


Only altered a couple minor things, and she's perfect <3
She's also the character featured in my icon, pff and people say you can't be creative with adoptables X3
I think my favorite part of adoptables is making a real character out of a design <3 something I've been very bad at doing lately save for a couple designs.

Hmmm whats your guys favorite thing about adopts ?
