So here are the first few of my breedings :3
Cobweb Soli & Custom White Tiger Soli
This is actually my own breeding. Funny enough, my first list coincided with my very first submitted breeding pair, so I requested to do it myself. :) I sweet-talked the original .psd off the Cobweb Soli creator, and was given a load more freedom to make these lovely ladies:
I am really, really pleased with how they came out. :) It seems that all the old soli lineart have some color bleed issues with the lineart... but all told, they still look lovely.
Rose Oakl & Malevolence Oakl
Two site pets, which meeeeans... no .psd's :(
But; I absolutely refuse to just hit overlay and call it done. So after much fiddling, fussing, lots of masking, and a bit of painting, I came out with these babbys:
I always take a long look and think very hard about what I think the owner had in mind when they submitted the breeding. I figured that they probably wanted the swirls on both, and then a bit of evil and a bit of sweet, so, I gave them one of each :) The first one came naturally, a dark palette, red overlays nicely on top... and I decided to really play up the rose, add some petals, and finally some blood. >:3
The second one was tough, believe it or not. Getting the white to go away, and the red stripes to be white, took a lot of finagling. Getting the black smoke to be white was, believe it or not, a nightmare. I gave her the petals too, I thought they looked sweet, but made her eyes black with the white line to return a bit of the sinister bit back in.
Custom Dragon Phantos
A .psd for both of them, hooray!
Since the second one is metal, I took the liberty of sticking with the first one's lines. I coooould've ripped off his hands and given it the little wobby ghost arms or something... but I figured the owner probably wouldn't prefer that, at least I hope not.
I tried to make them as unique from each other as possible, while still yielding the most desirable parts of the parents. I removed the scales from the hair/chest of the first one (it looked silly on the light purple), but I re-added them to hair of the dark one, as they look quite nice on it. I had to pull in the scales texture overtop of the parts it didn't cover, but it wasn't too difficult. Scales go overtop of the paint on the purple, covered up by it in the second.. little things like that.
I really like how they turned out ^^.
Painted Kyre & Majestic Kyre
Two more site pets... two more with no .psd's :(
I had to get pretty creative with this one. It would be a very easy thing to just layer them and call it a day, but there was a lot of potential in there still, so I pushed it hard.
I took the plating + claws directly, they added a nice pop of color to my chosen lighter palette. After about 8 layers of different blending effects, I got the body how I liked it, and painted in the glowy cyan dots where they had been on the Painted Kyre. I took the purple eye and gave it the pretty detail of the Painted's cyan eyes.
When stacking more than one premade, the lines become incredibly thick and pixelated. In all of the pets I don't have .psd's for, I always pull my finished result into the original breed .psd, to re-mask it off and put on new lines.
Only one babby for this breeding, which made me sad. After finishing the first, I really wanted to do another with swirls masked out inside the spots.
