Chimereons: SEMI-OPEN by ground-lion Chimereons: SEMI-OPEN by ground-lion
Hey guys! I've been wanting to do this for a long time but wasn't really sure exactly how to go about it. But I think I've finally figured out what I'm most comfortable with, and what will work best for everyone participating in the group!
Since my Youtube channel has been growing in size recently, a lot of younger viewers are really interested in making one of their own Chimereons like Clair. I want people to have fun and feel like they can create something similar, while still being within a safe and official space to do it so nobody dogpiles them for copying   ;w;

In order for your new Chimereon to become official, you will have to make two drawings. This is to help lower the amount of "one and done" sort of entries, where people only draw their Chimereon once and then lose interest. Once you draw your Chimereon, I (or HoshPosh) will give you a prompt based on your Chimereon's personality/attributes/etc which you can draw a second picture based on in order to become official!
These prompts will be relatively simple so it stays accessible to a wider audience. Ie: "Your Chimereon tending to their garden", or "Your Chimereon building a sand castle"
★You can submit BOTH of your drawings to the Pending MYO Entries folder in the Chimereons group!
★Once you have completed the drawing of your Chimereon, completed the prompt, and then become approve by a group admin, you can Submit your Chimereon to the Masterlist!

Since I have never done something like this before, I'm sure people will have many questions I have not thought about covering. Please feel free to ask in this comment section! I will update the FAQ here with questions that are asked frequently.


FAQ title by Louivi

Can I submit a design that was submitted to a previous MYO contest?
Yes! Though the design will most likely need to be simplified to fit within these new guidelines. If the design already fits within the guidelines, I can manually move it to the pending MYO folder for you  :3

What is the deadline to submit a MYO?
There is no deadline! This is now an official part of the group that will last indefinitely. Take your time creating a Chimereon and finishing their prompt, there's no rush!  :D

What quality do the submissions need to be?
The quality is flexible as long as the design of your Chimereon is legible! It can be sketchy or traditional, as long as it has some colour to see the design.
Prompt images can also be sketchy but need some colour! Just do your best  <3

I can't draw the Chimereon body type... what do I do?  ;__;
If you want to copy some of my artwork to better draw a Chimereon, I don't mind! Or you can alter the anatomy of the Chimereon to better fit your style. If you prefer drawing anthro, that is fine too!

Do the eyes and tongue count as one of the 3 colours?
Actually, I forgot to add this. The eyes can be a different colour than the 3 main colours! As long as the sclera (white part of the eye) remains white. Different coloured sclera is a rare trait not permitted for this MYO event. But please feel free to make the iris whatever colour you want! pawpads and tongue can also be their own colour.
Coloured teeth are also a rare trait. Please keep the teeth normal teeth colours  :D
Hair and manes DO count toward the base 3 colours.

So basically, make sure the 3 main colours are for the body and markings. eyes, paws, tongue, etc can be their own colour!

Can my Chimereon have horns on their head?
No, for these type of MYO entries, they can not. These MYO chimereons can only have common traits.
If you go to the shop and purchase a Horn Growth Supplement, however, you CAN add horns to your Chimereon! (along with a few other options)
Chimereon Shop -OPEN- by ground-lion

What if I already own a Chimereon from a previous auction/flatsale or MYO contest? Can I still enter this?
Yes! Everyone is allowed to make one Chimereon MYO using this system, even if you already own a Chimereon.

What is the difference between Herpian and Mammalian?
Herpian type Chimereons are based on reptiles and amphibians, so they share qualities similar to those animal types. scales, spikes, shells, etc are more common on Herpian species. They cannot grow hair or ears (unless the upgrade is purchased from the shop for them to have it)
Mammalian types are based on mammals, so having fur and ears are more common for this species. They cannot have scales/spikes/shells/etc unless the upgrade is purchased (which is not yet implemented).

Are we allowed to draw Chimereons with human bodies?? Cuz I suck at drawing animal legs :'V But idk if that'd be considered "unusual"
Im working on a design rn and I just can't seem to figure out how to draw the legs properly :'0 It's fine if I can't, but if I may ask, can I please have some pointers or tips to drawing their legs ^^
Thanks in advance!! ♡

I was just wondering, I already have my MYO reference and prompt approved, but is it fine to redesign the reference? By that I mean just redoing the reference sheet while keeping the traits and appearance of my Chimereon the same. 

And if that is fine, would it be okay to add clothing my Chimereon would wear as well as different hairstyles? (My chimereon has long hair but I also want to draw them with short hair or maybe in a ponytail)

Hello! I wanted to know. While making your Chimereon, would making one eye (or both) be considered rare/uncommon? You probably have already adressed this situation and I'm sorry if you have. But I thought I should ask anyways.

:icontoxxicatedpaint:
ToxxicatedPaint Featured By Owner Edited Apr 12, 2018  New Deviant Hobbyist General Artist
It's fine! I was wondering, would it be considered uncommon if a Chimereon had one blind eye (or was blind in general)

I'm also sorry for not making it clear in my first message ;; I was a little too excited and forgot a few parts in my message.

i think blink or damaged eyes are fine, as long as you can include in the ref sheet what their normal eyes look like before the injury or blindness!  :3
