Fuku Guidelines

Sun Mar 29, 2015, 9:03 PM by SailorAlcyone:iconsailoralcyone:


There are five Tiers that will become available as you accumulate points and level up your Senshi.

When creating your senshi, please adhere to the guidelines as laid out below or we will have to request you adjust your design. We realize that there are many groups out there who allow free reign, but we've designed these structures specifically to get you more involved with evolving your character and developing in the group, much like one would in a D&D campaign when you start at level 1. There will be plenty of opportunity to personalize your fukus later!

Shining
Radiant
Brilliant
Legendary
Mythic


The first Tier, Shining is automatically open upon joining. The other tiers must be unlocked with Crystal Points, and at higher levels, Quest Requirements. What are Crystal Points? In short, they are a form of currency you can earn here simply by participating in well, anything! Go here: fav.me/d8ng04z to read more on Crystal Points and ways you can earn, and spend them! With each new tier you reach, you unlock more abilities for your senshi as well as Fuku Upgrades.

Fuku Guidelines broken down by Tier


:bulletblue::bulletblue::bulletblue::bulletblue:TIER 1: SHINING:bulletblue::bulletblue::bulletblue::bulletblue:


First Tier, automatically open upon joining the group and claiming your crystal and animal.

POWERS
Max 2

Any combination of Innate, Offensive or Defensive powers. You may even choose 2 from the same category if you wish, but you can only have 2 powers total, to start.

Things to keep in mind:
Any type of extra embellishment outside of the above guideline (like shaped bow tails, split skirts) are currently NOT allowed in the Shining Tier. Extra Embellishments can be PURCHASED, but only after your first upgrade. For more information please look here:

~Crystal Points: What are they/how to earn them!~Crystal Points are the form of "Group Currency" that you can earn by doing things around the club. These points can be accumulated to either buy admin art or to buy upgrades for your senshi. There are two different types of points in this system: Crystal Points and Shards. Crystal Points will be needed to upgrade your senshi while Shards will allow you to buy admin artwork.
How to earn points
~Complete your own reference sheet for your senshi: 2 crystal points (one time only)
~Complete the Side Quests found over here: ---> http://fav.me/d8nukmm ( points as stated in each quest)
~Partake in each Event: 1 point per event unless otherwise stated
~Complete Story Quests, found over here: -----> http://fav.me/d9mcg5i ( points as stated in each quest )
~Draw fanart of other Crystal Animamates (max of 3 per month): 1 point per fanart
~Draw your own character (not just ref sheet and outside of quests/events, max 3 per month): 1 point per piece
~Donate Points towards super group status: 1

For Legendary's transparent back bow- is it a second layer or the one already there? And if second layer, does it go on top or below? O:

Edit; oh! Also if 2nd, would it be one of the fuku colors or just white/clear?

SailorAlcyone Featured By Owner Jul 31, 2019  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
If you have more than one bow from previous upgrades or additions you could choose one or both to turn transparent, totally up to you! But if you have just one bow, it would be just that one. Also good question as to the colour! I would leave that entirely up to you guys! You can choose if it goes shimmery clear white or if it still has some colour for one of your fuku colours (main or gemstone, either or!). 

And man, I gotta get going on more story for this so Brilliant and Legendary Tiers can finally be unlocked! lol I have a few key story plots I need to get out before those can happen, but hopefully I can get back into the swing of it all!

Hehe, ok. x) Then I'd probably buy a second bow since I don't think I'd like the original/main bow turning transparent. XD

That's totally fine, there really isn't a rule on that cuz in general, people's art tends to develop and features change with that anyway and hair is subject to change on whims as well and are allowed to follow the natural growth of hair in real life. Different styles, cuts, colours, they can be changed without needing to worry.

Nope! It does not count. As stated in the guidelines, the amount of clusters is IN ADDITION to the forehead cluster.

unfortunately we do not allow Doll maker submissions in our group so we cannot accept this currently

There are a few minor things that need to be adjusted about her appearance:

*She has a few too many gemstones for her forehead (*2-4 small clusters of gemstones somewhere visible on the body (no more than 3 small crystals per cluster), aside from "tiara cluster". As a side note, these clusters are only on their Senshi forms. They are not visible in their civilian forms. These are in ADDITION to the gemstone forehead "tiara". )
*Our Fuku is a strapless bodice so her sleeves would have to go (i know this is the doll maker but still just letting you know)
*She would need to have the secondary gemstone colors going over and under her chest (As seen here on the upper right: Shining Fuku Guidelines by SailorAlcyone )
*Her brooch would need to be altered and have the small sets of wings coming off of it (as well as the brooch copy on her belt)
*In shining form she cannot have those small gemstones hanging off the tips of both her front bow or her back bow (you can however purchase those later through the group via crystal points for completing activites)
*Her Gloves are fine but you can only have 2 gems max placed on each glove and boot as we have some like that already. However They cannot fully encircle like that (if you wanted to have  a second color it would have to be a solid block like Example Fuku: Scarlet Emerald Scorpion by iCheddar )
you can have the anklets and wingletts on her shoes so thats okay

Feel free to note the group if you have any further questions as it helps the admins keep track of things!

Not sure if this hasn't been addressed in an earlier question/comment, but if my stone has more than one color in on piece, would my secondary color be the main color of the gem, or would it be able to have stripes/specks of whatever other colors are in the stone?

*Brooch design repeated for Belt Gem. Any shape style and metal is allowed, but must have the small wings as per reference, and must be simple gemstone. Any specific "carved" styles such as skulls or animal faces etc are considered an embellishment and are currently not allowed in this form.

Your wings on your brooch can be pointed in any direction. feel free to browse our Reference sheet folder for ideas from other animamamtes and how they did their brooches wings.

If you are stuck on a shape that you'd like I've found someone who did a whole collection on Gem shapes for the Steven Universe fandom: Gem Facet Bundle P2U by TheLittleEngineKid  They have a very wide selection of potential shape ideas. also feel free to browse actual gemstones on rings and pendants too~

Question! So, I reserved Pietersite Teratorn--a teratorn of which being a very large bird. Considering this and the restrictions on certain, let's say, textures, is it still all right to add some feathers to a Native American character--like, on the gloves and shoes? I mention the Native American thing because the feathers would be more of a cultural aspect.

To clarify: I am not talking about making feather boots and gloves, I am talking about the feathers that accent the fringe on some Native American clothing and even hairstyles.

Hey! If you'd be willing to link us an example of what you mean we'd be better able to decide if it'd be okay for you to include that or if it needs to be a purchasable upgrade :)

Sure, here are some examples:
s13.postimg.org/3kh2ch41j/9e29… (feathers on fringe of moccasins)
s29.postimg.org/eo6xldvvr/1065… (feather in hair)

Also, are claws like the image below considered a weapon? I mean, I am pretty sure it is, but I thought I'd ask anyway.

iCheddart Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
after talking about it we feel that feathers on shoes/gloves would be more of an embellishment "+1 Boot and Glove Modification (colour/style adjustment, animal traits)" So that would currently have to wait until you upgraded to the next tier. 

But feathers in hair is alright.

and yeah those would be classified as a weapon haha ^^

i have chalcedony for a stone, and if you do an image search, it comes in all different colors.  normally, i think of white, but it's not just white.  i chose a pretty blue tone that i took right off one of the chalcedony stone pics.  would you like me to post the stone image on my ref image so you can see where i got it, or do you just trust me?  XD
Reply
:iconlumaea:
Lumaea Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2015  Hobbyist
Chalcedony has a waxy luster, and may be semitransparent or translucent. It can assume a wide range of colors, but those most commonly seen are white to gray, grayish-blue or a shade of brown ranging from pale to nearly black. so i think it would be fine ^^ you can post the stone to your ref if you want to. i think some people did anyways, but also a lot of people put the stone ref on the claim the crystal journal so we could see it that way too ^^
