An improved and clearer visual guide for the Nekoi Species! There will be a MYO event soon!
They are a Closed species, meaning you are not allowed to create one, sorry!
How can you get one? Sometimes I will put them up for auction and adoptions, OTA, etc. Or you could also get one by doing species trades and other kind of trades. I may also accept to make customs for friends, and later I may also open customs commissions.
All done with the species guide to my new species that I've had in my head forever.
They're called Ilks, and are an amphibious species that have a limited range of sentience. They can solve basic puzzles, and pass the Mirror test, but they can't do complicated forms of math, or have a system of currency. I'd say their intelligence is a little higher than that of a dolphin.
When designing these guys, I was going for something that was unique, because lately I've seen a bunch of talented peeps being attacked because their species wasn't "original" enough; but at the same time I wanted them to look familiar to certain animals that people know and love.
So yeah. This is a closed species up for custom commissions. There aren't really any restrictions on them; however, I'm going to be a little more selective when it comes to color palettes, nothing too strict though. Just lay off the neon.
For customs both species of Ilk are 15$ each. Paypal only. If you would like one just shoot me a note, and I'll send you an adoption sheet :>
You can join us or view all the info over at our group! And yes, they are indeed breedable! Breeding info in group.
If you are interested in the species, I suggest joining or watching the group! We often host games and free contests over there, as well as have some fun and a few different ways of earning any Kintaur. The group is really active!
Kintaurs are a closed species, you cannot normally make your own.
The only way to get them is from me, Cass-EX, by buying from users who have them, or breeding.
WHAT IS A KINTAUR?
They are medium-sized, raptor-like creatures. They seem to be an ancient species linked back to the dinosaur age. They are ride-able. Just like every species, though, there are smaller (mini) and larger (great) breeds of Kintaurs. Now that we have found them, Kintaurs can be found tamed or in the wild.

If you are only here to comment badly or negatively about closed species, note this: I will hide your comment without a response. Sorry and cheers! : )
A charts to show the variety of whiskers + eyes for the Nekoi Species.
Blue: Common Yellow: Less Common Red: Rare Gray: Illegal (No whiskers at all) -Amount and Length of whiskers also play a role in rarity. -Two pairs of whiskers on cheeks and one pair on top of head is considered common. -Whiskers with more than two separations on cheeks are considered less common. -Whiskers with separations on top of head are considered less common. -Single whisker in the middle of the forehead is considered rare.
-White, yellow and soft pink scleras are common. -Saturated (blue,green,red,etc) and dark scleras are considered less common. -"Dragon Eyes" are considered rare. - Shaped pupils are considered rare.
Extra notes!! There can't be too many "design" lines. They end up looking like stripes. The smaller the marking, the circular they become. To avoid this make them slightly longer so they appear more square-like. Ears can be super long, but it's usually the hair that's longer not the flesh. Breeds are arbitrary things for diversity. They only determine size and aptitude (feral--domesticated). They can all have these styles. I just drew it on different breeds because it's fun!
GROUP DICHOTOMY A party of 3-5 roos is called a jump. 7+ roos is called a mob. When mobs get together it's called a mafia or a seismic jump.
APPEARANCE AND ANATOMY NOTES Giraffaroos, despite their name, are not chimeras of the two animals. They are named after them because I'm bad at names.
HEAD Resembles that of a bear more than anything, their large snout being the defining feature. EYES Eyes are usually squinting. They see better during dusk/dawn. Roos often suffer from sight related defects or partially become blind if exposed to too much direct light. They can't see colors that are off-white, it will be no different than white in their eyes. NOSE Often relying on their sense of smell. Roos can tell each other apart by this alone. They are capable of closing their nostrils tightly. EARS Extremely varied among roos, their ears are usually pointing forward when locating itself. Most roos learn to use echolocation, using a series of clicks and coughs and low pitched sounds to navigate the area. MOUTH Omnivorous. Prefer to feed on small prey and fruit. They have large molars and canines. A lot of them grow large tusks, but not large enough to grow beyond the snout. They do not have striped tongues. HORNS Most have two nubby horns decorating their head. Rarely grow larger than a foot long. They start sprouting when they are more than a year old. Not all roos grow nubs, there are exceptions. Roos with more than one pair on their head is considered extremely rare. They always appear smooth and giraffe like. Usually striped. NECKS The most flexible part of a giraffaroo's body. It's capable of keeping their head focused in place while moving. Their length is extremely varied. As they can share the same height but different neck lengths. SHOULDERS Roos have a particular roll of muscle surrounding the base of their neck. It's speculated that it's there for added protection. Parents use this to pick up their pups with no harm done to their bodies. Prominent on most boss roos. BODY All roos have a curved back, almost tear shaped body. A nubbed back is a sure sign of an adult roo. There are exceptions. POUCH Most roos develop an extra, stretchy and thick layer of fur and skin on top of their bellies. It starts growing when they are old enough to mate. Females develop them faster than males. FORELEGS Wild roos have strong enough legs to distribute their weight and run on all fours. Most roos, though, have smaller, dexterous forelegs. They all learn to manipulate objects as soon as their given the opportunity. HINDLEGS Large kangaroo or hare like legs, with the exception of the "foot", are spring-wired. They are capable of carrying three times their own weight. LOCOMOTION Most roos cradle forward to "walk". Those smaller can develop raptor-like postures to walk and dog postures to run. All are capable reaching a speed of 40 mph when hoping. They have incredible stamina. They are always use a plantigrade stance to balance themselves or stand up as it were. SKIN Usually the color of their nose, nubs or dominant marking color. Most have a black to dark pink pigment where the blood is closer to the skin. MARKINGS All roos develop square/rectangle shaped markings. Usually around their necks. BONE Their bones are the color most prominent on their nubs or eyes. BLOOD Always deep red or black. It's probably because of the high red blood cell count in each drop. This allows them to hold and flow sufficient oxygen throughout their bodies. MAGICAL ATTRIBUTES Roos have an almost weightless feeling to them. Their movements are floaty/gravity defying. They have limited sentience. They communicate mostly through extreme empathy. Great at detecting someone's true intentions. There are three major deities: Asith, Ticia and Diel. The human-like inhabitants have learned to project them unto a creature and themselves. Sometimes giving them other magical qualities.
BREEDS Boss They are defined by their large size, streamlined nose, thick necks and wide paws. They are mostly found in the wild and it's rare to see them interact with other creatures peacefully. The average adult is 7 to 9 feet tall. They are named boss since they function through a mob or head family system in groups. Scout Defined by their sleek and lithe look and bear or bull dog like nose. They are in the middle when it comes to size, usually 4 to 7 feet tall. They are found in both wild and in populated societies. They are named scout since they are usually the kind to do the job when part of a mob. Joey This breed is found almost exclusively in the hands of an experienced breeder. Popular but difficult pets to own. They average around 2 to 4 feet in height. They are defined by their short and round snouts, and small forelegs.
Broo: Scout/Boss, common cross breed. Joe: Scout/Joey, not very common Boe: Joey/Boss, extremely odd/rare
Extra Notes!! They cannot run on all fours under normal circumstances. Except smaller breeds. They can adapt to running on all fours with moderate ease. Their bodies can roll/curl forward completely, but are extremely limited to the other way around. The "hunch" and the roll of muscle and skin is almost always present. The longest tails are the horse hair tails. It's extremely rare for it to be so long in bone structure.
Sorry for the ugly watermark, but i don't want it to get used by anybody.
I thought i post a little anatomy guide for my geisha bats, i noticed that they don't really get drawn like they should be. I know the styles and materials artists use make the shape of geisha's vary. But still they have a few things which have to be drawn right or visible. uvu
There are currently (since my last adoptable batch) 2 types of geisha bats. Giant Geisha Bats and Minions. I made the mistake that i used the chibi base for geisha bats adoptables. And a few are already drawn and they are cute the way they are now. The little wings and everthing makes this a new type of geisha bat. ; v ;
Common appeareance of a geisha bat:
A geisha bat has one pair of wings, forelegs and hindlegs. Giant geisha bats wings are bigger than their body. A minion's wings are smaller than their body.
GIANT GEISHA BAT
1 | Ears: A giant geisha bats ears big, but not as big and close together than a minion geisha bat's ears. Geisha bats are beeings with a sharp hearing sin. They can rotate their ears 180°. The ears are never floppy or folded. This can happen in a fight with another GB or in an escape of a predator.
2 | Fluff/Mane: A giant geisha bat's mane is extreme fluffy and ranges from their belly over their sholders, neck and back of their head. sometimes the fur coveres the eyes of a geisha bat, which isn't bad, as they have a bad eyesight.
3 | Wings: General wing span of a giant geisha bat is double their body length, messured from ear tip to tail tip. Their wings are
4 | Body: Geisha bats have very short bodies. They don't have to walk much nor run. They have baggy legs, which are fat resources if their main food sourse might run out. The arms are strong and pouch sack is connected to their sides. its a soft skin pouch which is covered in a fine but very short fur/hair. Sometimes their fat resavoirs are different filled which gives the leg a unbalanced look. Like boobs of a women. they are never perfect shape. one booby is most of the time smaller than the other.
5 | Tails: Their tails are long and thin. The wing skin is connected to the tail for better flying and glideing. The tail tips is always shaped like a fan. Sometimes you can see them playing with its tail or faning air to them by holding the tails like a geisha their fan. 6 | Forearms & Pouches: The pouch is connected to their thighs. The sack is usually flexible enough to store up double the weight of their body. Their arms are strong enough to hold the fruits. Geisha bats have a strong muscle which closes the pouch for the flight. Sometimes the sack is too full for the muscle to close. 7 | Nose & Teeth: Geisha bats have extra big noses, it might seem to be my drawing style, but they are actually this big. They have big noses because they need an extra sharp smell for finding the perfect fruits. The ripest, and most fruity fruit to eat. Geisha bats are herbivores tho they have sharp fangs to poke through hard covered fruits.
8 | Size Comparison: Giant geisha bats are small enough to fit in your hand. approximatly: 15cm - 30cm Minions are the smallest types of geisha bats ever recorded. Their size reaches from 2cm to max. 5cm.
MINIONS Minions are smaller geisha bats which often gather arround a giant geisha bat. Either to clean them from their hard work or to play with them. Minions are not geisha bat babies. Baby geisha bats are bigger than minions. Minions need to have big ears to hear their 'Core - Geisha' in the colony. A core geisha is the geisha bat that alows the minions to keep company. Normally a core geisha has mx 5 minions around them.
9 | Ears: A minion's ears are bigger and rub at each other, which often make a chirping noise. Minions communicate through ear chirping or loud screeching. 10 | Fluff / Mane: The minion's fluff or mane is not so fluffy than a giant's mane. The fur is still soft and fluffy.
11 | Forearms & Pouch: Minion's dont use their pouch sacks. If they use them then only for short flights from A to B. To get bugs or their Core a special treat. A minion's forarms are weak little twigs, which can easily break.
12 | Wings & Tail: A minion's wings are not connected to their tail, than of a giant geisha. 13 | Nose & Teeth: Minion's have a strange lip shape, it doesnt have any advantages of the giants. Evolution tried to make this little thing look more dangerous than the big ones. Minions are the only Geisha bats which nose types vary. They can either have natural bat shaped noses or other shapes as spades or star noses. The teeth of a minion are sharp and pointy, they also have only four fangs, which allows them to poke into the neck of a giant geisha and drink their sweet blood.
Yes, Minion geisha bats are the only geisha's which drink blood. only bits of flood their other main nutrition is fruit juice.
Are minions able to live on their own, without a Core geisha? Yes, Minions are able to live on their own, even if the don't have a core geisha. Not every giant geisha is a core geisha. It is not known how a giant geisha becomes a core geisha. Sometimes minions gather around a baby geisha, they want to protect it in any way. Some think the minions gather around a giant geisha to have a better chance surviving.
How many geisha bats am i allowed to hold/have? You can maximal have 3 giant geisha bats. If you have a geisha bat, which is a core - geisha you can have up to max. 5 minions.
Example: you have two giant geishas and one of those geisha's is a core geisha, you can have a max of 5 minions. You own 7 geisha bats in total.
for everyone who bough a geisha bat from my last adoptable batch, you can choose between a giant geisha bat and a minion, because i used the chibi base for an giant geisha bat, but idk i don't wanted to say, you drew it wrong, so i created the minions uvu just leave a comment with you want a giant geisha bat or a minion. (only those who bought one of this batch: Huge adoptable batch
CREDITS geisha bats species concept and design by 11monsters do not steal or use the anatomy guide to make some adoptables jsdkfsdf you are temporary not allowed to make your own, species is in active developement
I know. I'm not super popular, I'm not super awesomesauce or whatever the kids be sayin' these days, but I wanted to make these as something that ANYONE can make. I saw interest when I posted a couple of them, and I'm so happy people were interested... I mean, I don't have that many watchers- not an army or anything lol- but hopefully people might... have fun with these? Make one or two? Idk. ;V;
- This is my species, the lavacorne OR lavacorn (there was dissention on the name! xD) You may have seen the male and female example images already uploaded! Any lavacorn's participating in this sheet are claimed, and are there to represent only. ^^'
- THIS IS AN OPEN SPECIES. BUT THERE ARE A FEW RULES! READ THE SHEET, OR READ THE FOLLOWING IF IT WORKS BETTER.
* Lavacorne's are natural of body color. No neon bodies / neon fur! * occasionally they shed fur in little round patches, but their coats can Be full if you wish. This example lavacornes are shedding~
* FEEL FREE TO PLAY WITH HEAD HORN SHAPE! BUT THERES ONLY ONE HEAD HORN AT A TIME! * The 'lava' of the Lavacorne's CAN be neon! Or multicolored! Anything! * They can have eye colors! I just draw my eyes like that sometimes. xD * Males have back hooves, females have front hooves! Females are furrier! * The furry forelegs on males and hindlegs on females conceal CLAWS. BIG CLAWS. * Any kind of fur! Curly, straight, thick, thin, none, lots! * Ears are usually floppy, but, go nuts! Straighter ears are 'rare,' but feel free to make those too <3 * The face of a lavacorne has NO MARKINGS OTHER THAN 'EYE SHADOW' AND DOTS ABOVE THE EYES. * They generally have two NATURAL body colors, two NATURAL fur colors, one horn color, and an infinite lava color amount. (They can have TIPS in any color!)
* FEEL FREE TO PUT STUFF IN IT'S LAVA CAPSULE! Just include lava in there too, or it's not a Lavacorne. It's an abomination! xD
* That's basically it. Feel free to spread them across the world if you'd be so kind! I'd love to see them around, though I know it's probably not gonna happen < 3
These started out kind of as a joke and became my personal... critter?
If you do make one, post it! I'll look at and comment on each and every Lavacorne I see! Please link back here and credit the species to me if you would, though. ;V;
THIS IS WHAT THEY DO IN THE DARK- THEY DO GLOW~
