I'VE HAD A VERY NEGATIVE EXPERIENCE ALREADY WITH THIS EVENT
so unfortunately I'm not willing to wait 3 more weeks to MAYBE see if I feel confident enough to give these away
I didn't care about the monetary value.. but apparently that's all that other people do.


taking down my birdfolk DTAI'm going to be honest.
I don't like people not following the rules,
trying to submit entries that do not follow the rules,
going for free things/hand outs or just want trade fodder.
I have wrote this journal over a billion times,
and I've taken it down just as many.
but I'm finally posting it because I simply don't feel comfortable to continue this contest.
I'm sorry that I had so many negative experiences that I don't want to wait for the few good people.
I know you guys are out there,
but no one even reads the initial journal.
so yeah, sorry.
the community let me down as a whole,
and I wasn't expecting that from birdfolk.
I will offer art trade or point/cash compensation for those who have already submitted entries
just note me to discuss

I will not be using any artwork unless you have sold it to me
I don't care if I get hated for this,
I just can't trust anyone anymore,
and I'll either sell these folk or gift them privately,
because it's left such a bad experienc


OK SO since I have an alarmingly large family of birdfolk,
I have decided to make 2 people very happy by putting two of my flock up for adoption.
I have spent a lot of money on them initially and for art,
so please consider taking time in to your entries.

the birdfolk community and my birdfolk are priceless to me,
which is why I can so easily give up something I invested a lot in to.
I know some of you might find me annoying at times, but it's only
because I enjoy the same things as you do and I am shit at making friends >:'D

you don't need to tell me you are entering!! <3

if you win the folk it is expected that you only GIFT to rehome
(or return to me, as I still DO love these folk just rather be selfless about it)
as I am gifting this folk to you.
do not enter to gain 'trade fodder'


RULES

- you may enter for both birdfolk, but you can only win one
- you can enter as many times as you like but I WILL judge quality over quantity of artwork
- please only enter your own artwork, and have it finished upon entry
- I will judge the artwork based on effort, if it looks crappy compared to the rest of your gallery,
I honestly will not consider you
- your artwork can be any media except photography/crafts
- DO NOT DRAW ANY OTHER BIRDFOLK FOR THE DTA EXCEPT THE ONE YOU ARE
ENTERING FOR!**
- you may change their names
- drawings do not have to include a background, but coloured/full body is preferred
- if you are banned from the birdfolk community, you may not enter

**drawing the folk with your own folk is ok, but it must include the birdfolk you are trying to win!

how to get in my good books

- don't kiss up/try to bias me by watching me and faving/commenting on heaps of my work
- I will lean more towards those who create a character along with their artwork
- take time on your entry

Submitting your entry

- upload the work to deviantart
- mention me/this journal in the deviation
- comment below with your entry
- if you wish for your artwork to stay with the character regardless of my decision,
then please mention it, so I can upload the work to the birdfolk's Toyhou.se
and it can go with it to the new owner

THE BIRBS
I love both these babies but as promised I stay to my word
and they both got pretty equal votes in my poll :3
they will both be 100% adopted out,
I MAY consider those more who don't have as many birdfolk already,
but as long as you show me they will be loved and paid a lot of attention,
that's what matters.

are small alterations allowed to the designs? like slight marking tweeks?

Also what do the underside of his wings look like? ovo sorry for all the questions
Reply
:iconsableu:
Sableu Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
for which birdfolk? It may be open to interpretation, but you can check the TH and see if anyone else had drawn an underside yet and use that as your best guess xD

marking changes I BELIEVE would fall under re-design, I'm not really sure if they should be allowed or not,
but what I think is best, is draw the character as it is, then if you win it's yours to make changes to,
if that makes sense.

the only one you can draw without as much detail is Chiyo with her original design here:
Birdfolk Re-Auction (CLOSED) by RayPai
so she doesn't have her hood or outer wing details

for Pip ;v; I did check his toyhouse already. and by slight changes I meant like, the red.. on the sides of his face, just kinda making them shorter? ovo

if i did a non canon humanization, would you accept it?
Reply
:iconsableu:
Sableu Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Sorry it would not be accepted! I am really looking for someone who loves these folk so, it wouldn't make sense to change them in to something else.

Considering the entry I saw you upload already, IMO it doesn't resonate with the birdfolk in the slightest.
if you do not want to use this design...
then why enter?

just for the sake of having a birdfolk?
sorry if I'm harsh, I'm just being brutally honest.

would humanized birbs be allowed?
Reply
:iconsableu:
Sableu Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
well.. I don't know if that is within the species limits?
since birdfolk live in kel-del and are quite mysterious and unknown, almost like a myth,
they can transform in to other species in kel-del, but the question is are there HUMANS in kel-del?
you could draw an adult form/transformation that is allowed, but that would then be more than drawing it as you would spend time DESIGNING something too, so be aware if you put in more effort there is the chance it could be worth it then again the time could be wasted. guess that's always the risk with DTA's

I will tag RayPai and King--kun could one of you two help me?

original question:
''would humanized birbs be allowed?''

Humans do not exist in kel-del. There are allowed to humanizing it, but it would not be cabon!

So they cannot have an "official" human/humanoid form other than an anthro version or other animals?

Good to know because i wan't to make a human-ish form for my birds, so i can just make that outside of the canon of the lore? I just wan't to make sure I'm not breaking any rules.
Reply
:iconraypai:
RayPai Featured By Owner Nov 15, 2016
That's right! Also mythical creatures are allowed though. 
Yes that is right! You can do so, but it will not be canon. ;V;/ you do not break any rules so no worries <3

If I draw my bird human I'm not allowed to submit the picture to the group right?

:iconking--kun:
King--kun Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2016
No. There are no humans in Kel Del, so for it to be canon, birdfolk cannot transform into humans or "humanoids" such as nekomimis etc.
Hope that helps!!
