I am letting y'all make these babies because I have the design rules down, I just don't have any lore.
--DESIGN RULES-- These are a semi-open species! Read the rules! •COLOR PALETTE-
~The base color HAS to be dark. But it cannot be black!
~For secondary color(s), you move one color over on the color wheel, and make it light/pastel.
What about their mask-like skull? That can be any shade of gray, white, or black! ~Eyes can be any color! Pads and claws can be any color! The spines on a Ryolites back are the dark variation of the secondary color! The spike-like things at the front of the Ryolite's mouth can to be white or black! Inner ear tufts have to be pastel! Inner part of ears have to be slightly lighter than base color! [NOTE] If you make the base color gray, the markings have to be black or white. This is the only exception to the color rules!
•MARKINGS- ~THE MARKINGS HAVE TO BE THAT OF A SNAKE. The markings can be slightly adapted to fit different art styles, but it has to be clear to someone what snake your Ryolites patterns are mimicking! [NOTE] Only Rare Ryolites issued in Adopts, auctions, and raffles by me or a leader of the official Amino and DA Group, can have freestyle markings, and can break the color coding laws.
•MALES AND FEMALES- ~The only difference between the male and female sexes is: the tuft in the crotch area. Only females can have this. Aside from that small detail, they all look the same! [NOTE] Ryolites are aliens who reproduce asexually, they don't have sex nor do they have genitals.
