Tips and Tricks to a successful Closed Species
Adoptables Week
How to create a closed species
Hello! My name is Shiohh and I am the creator of the closed species Kowaiko and Kinoko!
I'm still new to the adoptable closed species world, but here are my tips and tricks on how to build up a successful species via my own experiences.

Step 1: Creating unique traits. 
What is a trait? A trait is an item or element that all closed species need to be unique, for example; Certain patterns on the body, wings, hooved feet, bubbles in the ears etc.
Choose 3 or more traits that you LOVE to draw, things you won't get sick of and will want to stick with. This is an extremely important step so do your research before committing to your traits, make sure no one else has the exact same idea as you already! Traits should be a unique combination of elements.
Side note: You are absolutely allowed to have a trait someone else has, however make sure you are combining t

Painting Gold - Digital Art Tutorial
This month DigArt Challenge theme is "GOLD", so I've decided to create tutorial for painting a shiny golden textures!
analyse the colours
First, we need to find some references for various golden surfaces. They should be both polished and rough. I've used free photos from Unsplash as my references.
Basic tone is orange/yellow. It's quite saturated. Reflected light is usually cool and desaturated. Notice that shadow is never black, and highlight is never white. Keep this in mind while painting.

1. Draw a basic flat shape.
2. Add shadow using soft brush at 20% flow.
3. Add highlight using soft brush at 20% flow..
4. Add reflected light using soft brush at 20% flow.
This unfortunately is not enough to create an object that will look like the one made of gold. The sphere looks plastic and matte, instead of metal and shiny. We need to create a texture.

Guide: How To Make Good Undertale AU
You thought to make your own AU but you don't know how to do it? In that case, I hope this guide will help you a little :wink 

How to start?
Start by thinking up story, find the main thread and expand it. Remember, however, do not get too excited too much so you come up with an interesting idea that doesn't fit into the present moment in your history, and which you necessarily want to introduce now, because it can disrupt the whole creation process. Slowly, step by step, develop the story, but if you really have an amazing idea that cannot get out of your head, write it somewhere in the margin, maybe you can enter it at a later stage of creation.
Keep your script clean and organized. Undertale has a lot of characters to deal with, so in your story you should choose who's going to be your main character, so you should focus on them mostly.

The results are in and are surprising or are they?
So first off thanks to everyone who took the time to comment on my last status post and share their thoughts, and to vote in the poll.
Before I discuss the results two things that came up in responses
1) There were no "right" or "wrong" answers. This wasn't a "my way is better" kind of thing. It was a genuine question, maybe looking to see if my own preferences met with any validation or I was totally out of touch with what the Peril community is all about these days, 
2) We say we are a community right? Can we please start acting like one? Folks need to stop viewing people whose kinks or fetishes don't line up with their own as "weird" or "creepy" or "boring" or any other adjective that makes them the "other" (with the one obvious and btw illegal exception of Underage stuff...)
If someone likes tickling and you don' what? If someone likes their oc's being tied up with their clothes on and you like full on what? They are free to set their own limits, and do their ow

CCCat Trick-or-Treat Event - COLLECTION PHASE

It’s October, and everyone knows what that means. Time to get as much candy as possible. Same goes for the CCCat group as well! Everyone is in the spirit.

But wait! Before you can start your hunt for sweets an orange CCCat calls you over - it’s Carter, a little sugar-obsessed gremlin. Looks like he’s running that candy cart of his again.

“I’ll trade you your candy for prizes,” he says, wiggling his fingers to attempt to be enticing. He gestures at his cart, showcasing all his wares, and somehow you feel like he’s got something good this year.

CCCat Trick-or-Treat Event

Goal: collect as much candy as possible to give to Carter in exchange for raffle tickets.
How do you get candy?

You will get the points for finding pumpkins and answering the questions. The winners will be those who will gather the most game points. You don't have to be the fastest to win! Once you gathered all the checkpoints and found the answers of the trivia questions, send me a

66 Days to Form a Habit - Question!
That habit being, of course, writing. For at least one hour, every day.
So. This morning- the day after a five-page stint- I woke up Trashed. Seems typical of that...
I have my Bullet-proof coffee, of course....
But I ended up falling into a conversation with a fellow artist. And in that conversation, ideas were sparked which shall play out in half of the chapters I am writing / have written the rough of, already.
Now: Does that count towards my habit-forming?

Important and Serious PSA for All Discord Users!
Copied this from Owyn-Ross 
Very important, serious and an urgent matter everyone should deal with ASAP! Discord has implemented a new Arbitration clause, and you've got 30 days to opt out starting right NOW!!
DO NOT PROCRASTINATE DOING THIS. For those who aren't aware, an arbitration clause revokes your right to trial in a court of law, meaning you CANNOT take any legal action against Discord if they were to do something such as leak your data. If you do not opt out, you're waiving your legal rights.
You have 30 days to email to opt out, you absolutely must do this if you care about having rights.
If you're not sure what to say, here's an example email:
(make sure you send the email from the email account your discord account is linked to)

Goodbye Oscar the Grouch
I found out yesterday Sesame Street veteran Caroll Spinney, the voice behind Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch is retiring after 5 decades on the show. The 84 year old puppeteer deserves it. He and Sonia Manzano were my favorite Sesame Street actors.
