With all the species stuff on DeviantArt, I'm curious. How many of you own a species, and if so, is it closed? What does it look like, if you have visual examples of it up? 

52%
87 deviants said No, I don't have an own species.
37%
61 deviants said I made a closed species / I made multiple species of which at least one is closed.
11%
18 deviants said I made a species, but it's open / I made multiple species, but they are all open.

I have a species with Acorn-o-licious called Fuwawa and there's a few slots open
I'm on my phone so I can't link it but there's a little folder in my gallery with it

I wouldn't really call these species... It's more of adaptations to cats with generally similar themes or features.
I haven't really fleshed them out very well yet either.

For example-

and then my adoptable batch that I still don't know if i'll sell-

They might not, so many don't use their species or characters owo Unless people have a sincere interest in them, but they did not create them so they might not be as emotionally invested in them as you are anyway.
That being said, why sell them and not just give them away?

Sell/give away I guess, its just no one is noticing them I do love them, but I feel like not only am I not drawing them a lot, but I'm also not doing a good job at getting attention for them. >W< CONFLICTS

Technically I own a lot of species in the way of species ideas that i have planned to use in a way or another but just haven't had the time to actually make anything off of yet. Most of which are still just a quick scribble I did on some random piece of paper I had available now lying around collecting dust somewhere on my desk

Some of my most recent examples:
Loop the loop reptiles
Cubic snakes
Spewer dragons
Padlock deer


I have way too much imagination compared to the time I have available for things like these

I have two species(I think..? Ahaha!), one is closed and very much under work still :'D 
The other one I am not certain if it should be open, closed or semi-closed? Mainly because I am not sure if they are original enough to be closed, or if people would even be interested in them ^^' I have started a reference sheet for them, but I have not had the motivation to finish.

I'm not really sure what makes a species "open" or "closed", but I have a lot of species in mind to live in my fantasy world. None of them are really detailed yet except for one though ;w;

If they are open you allow others to freely make their own as they please, if they are closed they need special permission :P

Well my species is the Pangozin
Pangozin Design by ButtFloof
That's the only pic I have of them right now because the person I used to co-own them with apparently decided to put the species ref and all the old pictures in storage "orz
Guess I have to make a new one ;-;

But yeah they're closed right now
But, I'm strongly considering making them open to attract more interest.
So, yeah....
