[YCH] Closed species icons [OPEN] by countercanon
[YCH] Closed species icons [OPEN]
Characters in Minkin and Mantibab samples belong to jaywalkings

So a little while ago I was playing around with painting methods and found this works really well for bases, and made a few backgrounded ones for closed species.

$30 for each. Saving to get a Minkin of my own eventually..;v;
☆ The samples are at actual size (200x200, the size of Toyhouse icons).
☆ You'll get the original image without the rounded corners + the icon with the rounded corners.

!Note!
☆ Recommended characters: light base colour, contrasting markings, simple markings
☆ Not-so-recommended: dark base colour, complicated markings (may not be clear at this size)
☆ Definitely not recommended: light-on-light markings (e.g. yellow on white), dark-on-dark markings (e.g. navy on black) these may get nearly indistinguishable or tweaked so that they're visible at all
☆ I'll tweak lighting/shading on a by-character basis (e.g. to make dark characters look better), so the resulting icons' background shading might look slightly different from each other. Also, the bab sample's the most recent (lepi's the oldest) so you can expect the colouring to look about that soft.

Currently OPEN

Slots:
1.
2.
☆ Please comment or note with a character ref (have a picture handy!) if interested
☆ I'll respond if you got the slot (if not, feel free to try again next opening)
☆ Payment by Paypal only, I don't take points

Slots for these icons are not currently limited since I'm not expecting many orders??, but if there's demand I'll limit them and churn out new bases every now and then!
Depending on the response I might make bases for more species (thinking of Faelidh and Sushidogs at the moment) too.

MYO Tsimu entry by countercanon
MYO Tsimu entry
I HOPE I'M DOING THIS RIGHT SWEATS
Entry for Tsimu's MYO event!
Tsimu are a closed species by kub-e.

---
Name: Hotaru
Gender: Male
Age: Adolescent/young adult
Bio: A young gatherer for his nest, Hotaru is a shy, timid sort of child, but with enough persuasion (and once he gets past the innate fear that the entire world is going to eat him), he'll let his curiosity get the better of him and join you on an adventure. Well-meaning and loyal, he's always glad to help with whatever he can, though he does have a tendency to worry up a storm when he feels things are getting out of hand usually when they aren't. Keep him relaxed and distracted long enough, though, and his knack for exploration will start shining through. With his nimble agility and acute senses, he's fast to find whatever you're looking for in every nook and cranny. Attention makes him shy and he's quick to brush anything off as simply pure chance, but just knowing he's helped in any away is enough to make him happy.

Hotaru also fosters a budding interest in alchemy, and he owes it to his portable nightlights. The timid tsimu has had the misfortune of being afraid of the dark since young. Figuring facing his fears would only help him get over them, in a monumental act of courage, he started seeking out caves to explore on his own, hoping once he spent enough time in them he'd get used to the darkness. While that unfortunately never happened, he did, however, begin to enjoy the caves, and it was on one of these expeditions that he'd discovered a cluster of glowing mushrooms growing on a cave floor. He'd found his solution at last- from then on he's worn a wreath of coloured glass flasks containing them, surrounded and comforted by their light wherever he goes. Through learning and experimenting to cultivate his own little stash of shrooms, he'd started taking interest in not only them but their possible uses in potions or in helping others. Maybe one day when he works up the nerve, he'll take the next step.

OC Lineup by countercanon
OC Lineup
masolulu and I started a thing last year where we tried to draw a full OC lineup, so most of these were done last year, but I never got down to uploading them...I actually haven't finished, even (just gave up after a month because of other commitments) - this is about 1/3 of the list I made and that's not even counting quad forms for a good number of them FJDLKFJ;K
World's End is very incomplete, it has 38470289374 characters which is why I kept putting it off...and there are also a bunch of other minor worlds that I'm undecided on drawing primarily because they'd need actual character designs (a bunch of worlds never really progressed beyond concepts)...speaking of which Subeta's were mostly redesigned, I didn't have any outfit designing skills beyond shirt/shorts or pants at the time. never give everyone sneakers it's a pain to design each time

Looking at these makes me feel so nostalgic ahhh

Dump 10
I thought I'd uploaded these already but apparently not?? Added in the stuff from this year as well anyway...most of it's an unholy mix of fanart and OCs and random designs

it's not all I've been working on, I'll be posting the rest later!!

Happy Chinese New Year!

3 left. I like how everyone picks from the bottom of the list up LOL

I didn't do anything with mine so I've accumulated quite a few, and can't think of a fun and low-effort way to distribute them...
So here are 24 invite codes for Toyhouse, no strings attached (just don't note me about codes), fastest fingers first:

I won't be updating the list with which ones are still available (until all of them are taken) so good luck!


If you haven't heard of Toyhouse please read this journal for info and some links:

Halloween '14 End + Toyhouse Plug

Some points if you don't feel like reading that much:

What TH is:
  • A character repository site - basically it's an easy way to create and manage character pages. There are no limits on how many characters you can have or how many images you can put in their picture galleries. You can also link characters to other characters for managing character relationships.
  • RP site - provides user-created forums (again, no limit on how many) for RPing and ability to comment ICly under a character's name + picture from their image gallery
  • Adoptable management - allows characters to be credited to their designers, and allow designers to set rules on what people can do with their adopts (selling/gifting/trading etc.) + have logs on character transfers
  • Other misc features:
    • Watermarking of images
    • Character tags/folders
    • Privacy levels (private/friends-only)
    • CSS customisation for premium members
    • Forum for socialising/recruiting new RP members/etc.
What TH is not:
  • Exclusive - the reason for having to use invite codes to register is that we're worried about the server load from having so many people join at once. Anyone can join if they can get hold of a code! It's not our intention to limit the site to "popular" artists or anything like that. (Which is why I'm throwing all my spare invites out there)
  • Weebly - please don't expect something that freeform! There's some measure of customisation with inputting character details, but for messing with the visuals you'll have to deal with the CSS (which I'm helping with by providing a framework on the site forum, and hopefully, some premade layouts). What we do have above Weebly is the built-in ability to socialise with other people over the site, though.
  • Pay-to-use - the site's main features are free to use. At the moment you pay to get premium features (including usage of custom CSS and 2 invites per week) but using the site itself doesn't require you to pay, and there aren't character/world/image count limits for non-paying users.
  • Clarification about the TOS (seems to be an issue that's floating around?) re: TH using uploaded images is here
