Gathering

Gathering is one of the activities in the group, where you can search for plants and berries. You can later sell these findings, or use them to craft potions, medicine and dyes alike.



HOW TO GATHER



    First thing to do is to create an activity journal - this can be made in the sta.sh writer or creating a public journal about it. In the comment section create 4 links - "Hunting", "Gathering", "Excavating", and "Traveling." The minimum requirement for the journal is simply a link or thumb pic (which links back to the import) to your Kukuri, and links to the comment threads (they are required). Using the same journal for all of your Kukuris is recommended.
THIS TRACKER MUST BE SEPARATE FROM YOUR FP TRACKER to keep things clear.

  Second step is to draw full body picture of your Kukus searching for possible plants and herbs. While the setting is free, AT LEAST ONE OF THE FOUNDABLE PLANTS MUST BE VISIBLE IN THE PICTURE. However, portraying said plants do not raise the odds of obtaining any specific ones.

  Biorhytm and diet affect your gathering results. A herbivore is more adapted in finding herbs and gets a slight bonus, while carnivore gets a slight minus. Omnivore gets neither bonuses nor minuses. The biorhytm of your Kukuri gives a bonus if it matches the time of the day presented.


GENERAL REQUIREMENTS FOR GATHERING

° One image/story can feature up to 3 Kukuris gathering. You can include more if you wish, but only 3 will be rewarded - any extra kukuris outside the 3 will also not get the gathering FP bonus.
° The images and stories are posted in the "Gathering" folder. One image/story is one gathering trip, which means that you can't collab many journeys into one picture/story, and comic pages are judged as one trip if posted as a page.
° Gathering is about finding foliage. There must be at least one gatherable plant (listed below) present - it does not have to be from the biorhytm your story is portraying.
° Rolling for rewards is completely random

REQUIREMENTS FOR GATHERING IMAGES

° At least 75% of the Kukuri must be visible.
° The image must be fairly clean, colored, shaded, and have a background.
° The image must be at minimum 300x300 pixels, where Kukuri is at least 150 x 150 pixels or easily recognizable.
° The image can't be much lower quality than the general standard of your gallery.

REQUIREMENTS FOR GATHERING LITERATURE

° The story must be at least 1000 words long
° Every Kukuri in the story rolled for loot requires +700 words, meaning two Kukuris would require 1700 words, and three Kukuris 2400 words.


WHERE DO I POST IT


As stated before, you post the finished image into the "gathering" folder and then wait. An admin will check your image, roll your rewards and post them to your gathering tracker and automatically add them to your bank.

In the picture, MAKE SURE TO INCLUDE THESE FOR EACH KUKU PORTRAYED:

Link to the import:
Kukuri's diet and biorhythm
Time of the day in the picture and the plant gathered:
Link to the tracking journal:
Relevant familiars, training, or applied items:
Proof of lease: (If leasing is present, if not delete this part)

Do angelberries grow on bushes or trees? I really can't make up my mind on which I would like to do so I thought I'd ask x.x

It's up to your interpretation? angelberries aren't specified to be on a bush or a tree ^^ (personally they seem like a tree-fruit to me though)

I'm sorry, I have a little bit of trouble traducing that from my mother tongue xD

I meant a comic strip ! with only two pictures

OH!

Comics, unfortunately, will be rolled as a single gathering entry. If you want both panels to be rolled for full loot they will need to be posted seperately, sorry.

Yeah a comic strip in french is called a "Bande-dessinée", that's why we call it "BD" for short, I didn't think of it, it came out naturally :')

Alright, thanks for the info :3

I have a question. Is pixelart valid for activities? I really want to do them with pixels (since i don't need to worry about colors)
The pixels would be very little, trying to do everything very detailed... :/

The size requirements must be filled even for pixel art, but as long as everything checks on requirement front, yes you can do pixel activities~

Under 'How to Gather', the word 'foundable' sounds a little weird. Maybe change it to Findable?. (:

Can photography of like a scene with clay figures be rolled as an activity? Like if I where to make a model kuku and photograph it in a scene could that count?

Only once at very most. Crafted models reused for images take FP penalties and likely wont be able to be rolled for loot when it's been reused :(

ive taken up making art dolls and thought it'd be fun to make a kuku, guess I still could though

I was under the impression that it would be a static statue. Is it going to be a poseable artdoll ?

Yeah I worded that really poorly my bad, yes it'd be a posable doll, I'd just use clay for its head and feet

Sorry for the late reply.

After a bit of discussion, it seems it won't be possible to use a craft doll for activities :( sorry about that. Especially since you'll need a very impressive array of props and backgrounds/etc just to make an image unique enough to not count as reused assets x_x

A doll/plush will still be able to collect it's own FP bonus though!

Can gathering images be a in a form of a small batch?? Like two images that are clearly separate or cannot they be rolled?
Just asking since I posted this Nevalena's Gathering and the person I'm drawing artwork for is confusing me. If there is two images that are clearly separate they cannot be rolled the many times as they are? 2 images = 1 roll? I'm so confused! Can please someone clear me the idea? >~<

While you can produce images in a batch, the final product MUST be their own image as an image is only rolled once. 

So yes, even if this image has 2 entries in it, due to the way it's presented it will only be rolled once. I'm afraid you'll have to split them up if you want both rolls to count.

Ah I see. That is little funny I must say but I can roll with it I suppose. Is it alright to split the image and upload it to the sta.sh and keep the "double" version on my gallery or is split one absolutely necessary? D:

Edit: No wait it has to because the group has submit entry this folder in order to work goddamnit. Oh well, idk why this is a thing but I guess you prevent people from doing mass activity batches to gain more stuff. The least group admins could do is pretty please mention this in the journals so people-- like me wouldn't get confused about it.

Uh, it's already stated in the journal:

The images and stories are posted in the "Gathering" folder. One image/story is one gathering trip, which means that you can't collab many gatherings into one picture/story, and comic pages are judged as one gathering trip if posted as a page.

You can keep the original in your gallery and post the split ones to scraps maybe? I see LamLArts has already helped you out some ^^

Oh sorry. My tired mind did not like to progress it lol since mine is a batch and not an actual 'comic' lol.

If I may come with a suggestion, you can upload the split version to your "scrap". A folder in your gallery that wont be visible even if clicked "all" and that only the watchers who chose to also see your scraps will see, but that's about 1/50 who usually does that. 
This way, you can still submit the two pieces to the group, have BOTH rolled and avoid having them in your gallery, reserving that for the uncut piece. 
They look really beautiful btw <3

Not bad idea, however, I decided to go with original uploaded into sta.sh and two pieces on gallery. Thank you for the idea thought! I appreciate it a lot and thank you for liking my art! ^v^

Hi, I can't shade for the life of me and I was wondering if it would be possible to change the shading requirement to something else? Like say, instead in exchange for not having to shade, I could do a short story/description?

There is no better way of learning than doing it though! <3 It doesn't need to be masterful, but believe me when I say when you slowly start doing it you'll slowly just learn it naturally!

I can't see anything about the background anywhere and I have a question regarding it. May I paint a "bubble" shaped background, still detailed enough to don't be a simple gradient?
I mean, those partly transparent with a shape that is not square like drawing.

I've seen several of these style pictures applying for many drawings in general but I'd like just to make sure about this.

tarynsgate Featured By Owner Nov 18, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
Yes you can paint it in a bubble shape (like this) just make sure all the requirements are fulfilled (a gatherable item is portrayed, semi complex bg etc) as the art quality will be compared to your gallery.

Nice! I'm asking this because got few good ideas with backgrounds like these. I'm not planning in saving time nor low quality, perhaps style, but to try something I haven't yet and I'd like.
Thank you for your answer! :)
