Alastor is dead. Today, 10:55 AM he was euthanized. He had old fractures on his spine, pelvis and his left leg. He would never have been able to live normally or without pain.
He went peacefully, fell asleep while chewing every now and then, which is a sign the animal feels relaxed. I was with him all the time, until he was gone. I have to admit it was the first time I actually saw an animal being euthanized, and even though I only knew him for two days, I cried like a little child. How could people neglect this bunny, with such a wonderful personality...
Their former owners will get a report for animal abuse. A blind man notices something is wrong when the animal is unable to move it's hind legs. Refusing medical help to an animal that's obviously in pain is one of the worst things to do in my opinion. I hope they get charged for it at least, I doubt it though...

Point System + Beauty PageantHey guys! It's been awhile since some updates!More Like This
After much thought and looking over all of your wonderful ideas for group changes, I decided to use Justalittlelost's idea to incorporate into the group. It was so simple yet effective I couldn't let the idea go to waste. I've already written about it on the front page and here it is:
Here in the Ivaloton group, we use a very simple point system that rewards members with free customs. For each art piece you draw of any of your Ivalotons, you will earn points. Once you reach 25 points, you can request a free custom! This system also doesn't go by each individual Ivaloton; you collect points from any of your Ivalotons and add them all up into one pool of points. Keep in mind, though, that if someone else draws your Ivaloton, it does not count towards your points. This system is also a repeating system. Your point pool will start over once you get your free custom! The amount of points earned per art piece are shown belo
Ivaloton GuidebookYou have reached the Ivaloton Guidebook! This is where all the breed guidelines and requirements will be written and updated periodically.More Like This
Please read through before ordering!
Ivalotons have a wide variety of personalities! If you want your horse to be mean, go for it! If you want your mare to be sweeter than sugar, let her be!Ivalotons are NOT a free breed.Most Ivalotons have Scandinavian (Finnish, Norwegian, Swedish, etc.) names, but it is NOT required! You can pretty much name your Ivaloton what ever you would like!
Identification (ID) System
All Ivalotons will come with an ID number that will be used to keep track of how many live in the herd. Your Ivaloton will get an ID according to who designed it. ID's will be formatted as follows:

This is why you (and your art) get ignored.People often get the sense of being ignored in the art-scene, especially here online. We all try so hard to get our foot in the door, it's like trying to stuff yourself in an overfull bus like a sardine in a can.More Like This
Sometimes you just want to socialize with other artists you admire and you seem to be talking into a brick wall or perhaps you've send your portfolio to a company over a dozen times and still don't even seem to get the smallest response or feedback. I will try and tell you WHY you get ignored and HOW you can get noticed instead.
I will go through the following cases of being ignored:
Do know, that even though being ignored feels very personal it's hardly ever personal at all!
Your comment(s) gets ignored.
It happens ever so often. You notice an artwork or a discussion and you weigh in with your opinion or admiration, perhaps even some feedback? T

Selling EBs/Mini ContestEDIT#2: YOU GUYS HAVE A FEW MORE HOURS TO SUBMIT ANYTHING. DUE TO UNEXPECTED PLANS I WILL NOT BE CHOOSING TONIGHT, BUT FIRST THING TOMORROW MORNING. THANKS GUYSMore Like This
EDIT: YOU GUYS HAVE 11 DAYS TO GET YOUR SUBMISSIONS IN. THEY WILL GO ON AUTO BUY FOR MUCH MORE AFTER THE 31ST
With much consideration, I've decided that I'll be selling my EBs after I'm done with the foals for everyone. It's becoming more of a pain than a joy to have them and I really don't have the time to be looking after them with the breedings and such, especially right now with finals coming up--school is much more important. I told myself I wouldn't get sucked in, but I did, and now I have to get myself out because I no longer have the time.
For my EBs, it'll be a draw-to-buy deal. There will be an allotted amount of time to draw the EB you want. There will probably be a number of drawings for each, so at the end of the specified time, I'll will choose whose I like best, kind of like a contest. I

Here's a collection of links to sites outside of DeviantArt where you can find free plushie patterns. There are well over two hundred choices, so you're sure to find something you like.
Remember, if you can't find exactly what you're looking for, try adapting one of the patterns. For example, a tiger can easily be turned into a lion, an elephant into a wooly mammoth, an elf into a goblin, or combine the upper half of a mermaid with the lower half of a pony to get a centaur.

WHAT I'M LOOKING FOR
Basically, I want a character with a dreamcatcher theme. It can be based on accessories, markings, anything. There just needs to be a dreamcatcher.
I'm a perfectionist and I struggle with designing anything for myself, been wanting one with this theme forever but it just doesn't seem to happen in my head.
I'd like it to be unique. It can be natural-based or fantasy. Other things I'm sucker for is skullfaces, be it markings or actual skulls/masks whatever. I'm, also a sucker for sparkly things, but might fall for a more toned down color-theme, especially unique earthy tones get me going Oh and I love antlers too, like deer/moose antlers xD
