Lol, I'm on my phone so I really can't tell the difference ^^;

I hate that about basecolors though. All outdated designs should get a notice or something. It just sucks to get a slot to a toko and then discover you can in fact not get that hue of color and only the design mods know it. It feels like getting cheated OTL

And the fact her brother can be dark just like the mother but the sister can't be because I'm late in submitting her to design central or something? So her brother is wrong who's ID is around 2324 or something like that :/

I don't really want to change the base color even if it's just a TAD lighter.

Someone please make a list of "wrong" tokotas and what part is "wrong" so I don't end up making this mistake again Dx

My family safety filter blocked the lighter version on my computer X'D
Proves that the darker version is better LOL

Not like it'll be accepted anyway but oh well, keep it official in your mind while you can ovo

Until the guide comes out, I'll be hesitant to make changes since the color was color picked off the mother X'D
Meeeh Tokotas remains as complicated as ever, just when I thought the months I've been in that group I would understand how to design a majority of the genes and pick the base colors =v=

I can't stay focused long enough to do Tokotas or any other closed species like that XD 
Tokos sure are pretty though

Just like me trying to create a species of my own 8'D
IDEAS EVERYWHERE slkdfa

Tokotas is making me practice how well I can handle critiques o__e It's like I'm designing for the admins some times and not for myself. SOMETIMES, not all the time =P Just my opinion XD

I'm just like
"I HAVE SO MANY THINGS I ALREADY NEED TO DRAW BAAAAH"
I've got like 4 or 5 refs to finish and a commission XD
Because I dislike lining so they're all in the sketch stage. Thankfully the commissioner is a good friend and she knows I'm slowly but surely finishing it XD

That's not all bad. Good practice for the future if you go into art as a full-time job, or even on the side. Though I myself am not a fan or critiques unless I ask for them, and that's usually before I even post something XD

I can't tell the difference, but I'm guessing darker would make more sense.

It's only a TAAAAAAAD lighter but in my eyes, it's a big difference X'D
Since it's going to be my character I guess 8'D

I personally don't see why you're bringing this to a poll to vote which one looks better?

'Cause I'm in conflict 3:
I've waited a long time to get a dire and I can wait longer. Not like the darker one would get accepted anyhow but I'd like to make it official in my mind for as long as I can :'D
Hard to explain but the design matters more to me than the fact that it's a dire

Honestly, she doesn't look like Valka's pup if she's any lighter in my opinion 3:
