Linearts and premade backgrounds:

- Linearts can be used in this breed. However, there are a few rules:

* Pre-made backgrounds that are reused can only count as simple backgrounds.
* If the lineart is not your own, you must credit the provider.

I've read and re-read this a few times but can't seem to find out why I gave my previously imported Padros 7 PP... ;O;

Others have done the same, citing "Import - 7PP" or "First Reference - 7PP" in the past, but nowhere on this guide does it say a no-lineage, first referenced, or imported horse gets any points, besides those gained from it's reference image.

Am I correct in saying that a horse that's imported and has no lineage starts with the normal 0 PP, until your first reference gives it PP?

starter horses (often indeed called imports) get a bonus of +7 PP from the start. This is partly to compensate for the lack of lineage that could provide hereditary points. It's probably a good idea that I add that part to this journal

Hello, how many Padro Points is something like this? I just want to be sure to have it correct. Thank you!

The shading on the fullbody wasn't part of the lineart, correct, that is your own work? If so:
flat colored headshot (1) + shaded fullbody (5) + simple background (1) = 7pp
Caralel's avatar
Yesum you're correct! Thank you. I wasn't sure if it counted as a background or not because there is no scenery.
casinuba's avatar
You're welcome! And yes, 'tis enough to pass as a simple background. :nod:

This artwork would count as shaded, right?

Yes * I'm so sorry for late reply*, it would :aww:

Question. Is the Ready to Mingle bonus per image or per other HARPG breed?
For example, I have a Padro in the same image as a Markhorse and a Boucle Unicorn. Would the Ready to Mingle bonus be only +2 or +4?
WildOracle's avatar
+2 :) 

It does not stack
YaminaKakarot's avatar
Similar question to previously. 
Is the Ready to Mingle bonus acceptable if the Padro is pictured with another ARPG species?

Example
Image features 2 Padros and a Kukuri. Would the Ready to Mingle bonus apply, or is there another bonus?
WildOracle's avatar
Yes :D Ready to mingle counts for that too
YaminaKakarot's avatar
Awesome. Thank you :)
casinuba's avatar
Ready to Mingle is per image, so would be +2.
YaminaKakarot's avatar
Okay. Thank you :)
zensighs's avatar
would padro points also be able to give your horse more breeding slots? or is here some other way :0
KaitlyNicole's avatar
Through ranking, yes.

Padro Point SystemIt was decided that we need a clear system, in which it is easier to determine the amount of Padro Points per picture.

Padro Rankings:new:
* Limited personal use of 100% twin chance. When a Padro reaches Ultimate Blood and further, the horse gets a 100% twin chance. For users that are not the owner of this horse, the twin chance is always guaranteed. For owners of the horse, the first five breedings have guaranteed twins. After the initial five breedings, twin chances will be reduced to 66% (for personal use). Whenever a new rank is reached, you will get 5 new guaranteed twin results (on top of those you had left from previous rankings). Please list the amount of used results in your horse's reference.
Rankings can be obtained by earning Padro Points for your horses.
More on how to earn points can be found here: Padro Point System
When your horse reaches a certain level, please note the group for confirmation. After confirmation, you can add the rank to the ref
rankings are as follows:
1 PP = breedable (any registered horse, basically. Imports automatically start off with 7

Padro Rankings
^ Reaching certain ranks (Quality, Perfect, Ultimate) by accumulating PP gives more breeding slots!

Virfil 1 out of 8 by Jelly-Critter Virgil 2 Out Of 8 by Jelly-Critter  would these count as shaded? .o. 
casinuba's avatar
Shading is minimal, so they would count as flat colored.

How do you calculte the total amount of Padro Points for your Padros? I have some more art that is being made and I don't know how to calculate the points.
WildOracle's avatar
Via this journal or send a note to the group titled "Rank Conformation" and an admin will verify.
