Vernid styles by LiLaiRa

FEEL FREE TO USE ALL 3 OR EXPERIMENT WITH YOUR OWN IDEAS FOR BOTH ANTHRO AND FERAL VERNIDS.


4. QUICK DESIGN RULES SUM UP


+ Females are bigger

+ Main difference between males and females is their mane

+ Royal vernids are closed subspecies (you can buy MYO or turn your existing vernid into one for €15, avaible to buy through notes any time c:)
+ Vernids created by you MUST have stripes on their back, however stripes can have various shapes and forms.
+ Fur musn't be GREEN.
+ Paw pads, inner ear, gums, tongue, flesh, insides (basicly all the fleshy parts) MUST HAVE THE SAME COLOUR, or very similar tones, or two together MAX. ex.
 (double coloured ears with hints of colour on their pawpads or tongue)
+ Claws, scales and horns are colour linked as well.
+ Belly is usually light colour but doesn't have to be
+ Albinos are rare and their survival rate is low because of lack of camouflage or discrimination by their own kind.
+ Vernids can mix ONLY with dragons, felines and canines. If the dragon breed posses horns/antlers, their offspring may be born with them.

If a dragon parent is winged, vernid may be born with wings too, but not big enough for them to be able to fly.

YOU ARE ALLOWED TO MAKE THOSE HYBRIDS, BUT ANYTHING BEYOND IS FORBIDDEN. MUTATIONS ARE EXCLUSIVE TO ME.


5. OTHER RULES


+ YOU ARE ALLOWED TO SELL VERNID ADOPTABLES, AUCTION THEM, SELL BASES AND MERCH.
+ YOU CANNOT CLAIM THE WHOLE SPECIES AS MADE BY YOU
+ YOU CAN TURN YOUR FERAL VERNIDS INTO ANTHROS AND BACK
+ YOU CANNOT ADD ACCESORIES ON FERAL VERNIDS, THEY ARE CONSIDER BEASTS AND CANNOT BE TAMED.
+ YOU CAN USE VERNID IN YOUR COMICS, GAMES, WRITING ETC. AS LONG AS YOU CREDIT ME AS A SPECIES MAKER AND OWNER.

Could anthro vernids overcome their fear of water? Or are they always scared of it?

Um, I'm confused about the no green fur thing. Like I have no idea where the heck that bit of info came from? I've over looked the guides over and over and can't find anything about it. I wouldn't mind, but one of the characters I have has blue-green fur. And I don't know if that crossed the boundaries of green. If anyone could tell me where this came from I'd really appreciate it.

Im not sure either. My vernid has mint green markings. I think it means so green fur for main fur color, but may be able to have green markings.

Question: Would one be permitted to make a vernid utilizing certain traits mentioned in the old ref that are not permitted in this new one? (Pack life, bioluminescence, etc.)

Do the dragon/vernid hybrids have to have the same horn shape as Royals or can they vary(ram, impala, bull, gemsbok, etc.)?

I aslo didn't realize I made 5 bases... I should delete the old ones. ^^;

I believe LiLaiRa states in the reference that while texture may vary, the horn size/shape is the same in all royal vernids.

What! No brests or nipples? I am offended.

:iconterradrone3:
Terradrone3 Featured By Owner Jan 24, 2018  Hobbyist Digital Artist
At least not visible nipples per se, the no breast part is kinda realistic from a biological standpoint but as for the nipples part I'd assume they're covered up by the fur. Kinda like cats or maybe dogs(I never owned a dog so I wouldn't know). Nipples kinda only show when a female has cubs to feed cuz I don't see how mammal-like carnivore babies (since in the ref itself they are compared to lion cubs) are supposed to eat meat straight from the get go. Unless they're like baby reptilians and start out insectivorous before changing their main diet to meat, but then that kinda makes problems for anthro vernids cuz bugs might be hard to acquire depending on whatever respective realm/world/universe a content creator places them in so...
IDK you might have to refer more on this with LiLaiRa about this, thats just my 2 cents.

actually she stated that they eat meat from birth, so no nipples at all.

Able to eat meat straight from birth, huh? Kinda hard to rationalize from a biological standpoint but I'll bite, it's her species anyways so whatever floats her boat. Still I'd appreciate if you can provide a link to where she mentioned this? Thanks in advance.

Ok but I don't fully understand the closed species thing. Before I continue I just wanna say that I would never go against a creators rules and I don't want you to think that I will.
What's stopping people from doing it even if you say they can't? I mean it can't count as art theft right? Since they would techincally not be stealing?

It's...mostly just kinda like a respect thing.
People are gonna call any artist that breaks these rules "because they can" a mega dick lmao No, I don't think you can get into any ACTUAL trouble, but you'll get backlash.
Closed species means you cannot make your own, but you can adopt or buy in some way.
Open means you can make your own so long as you follow the rules.
So the royals are closed but the other variants are open.

There's a certain user on a mobile app called FrameCast who made a Vernid but did not follow any rules. If you want I could tell you their user and post a picture of their character, but I can't talk to them because they blocked me.

What do you think are some characteristics that will show up in a housecat-vernid hybrid? Like, perhaps the varying fur length or ear size?
Reply
:iconpaisleyproductions:
PaisleyProductions Featured By Owner Jan 31, 2018  Student Traditional Artist
Id say for that hybrid, they'd be more LAST. Maybe a but chubby from eating alot. Ears would probably need to stay vernid ears. Not sure.
