Official Paintie Check Thread

Hello there!
Welcome to the Official Paintie Check Thread, where you can get your Paintie looked at by the Staff for pre-approval. Here we can look at sketches, edits, and finished products to let you know what (if any) changes should be made to make the approval process go as smoothly as possible. We hope this will improve everyone's Paintie making experience!
Some things to remember when posting your Paintie(s):
  • Please link to any images rather than embedding them, this will make the thread easier to load and read.
  • Providing an overlay and a non-overlayed version helps us a lot for redraws or particularly complex edits.
  • The more details you can provide us, the easier it is for us to help you.
  • This thread is specifically for official checking, please refrain from weighing input on other Painties - feel free to make threads for that individually!
  • All Paintie related questions are welcome.
  • If you have a new question to ask, but your old one hasn't been answered yet please edit your post rather than making another post.

Remember that this thread still follows all rules of the forums, so don't derail or harass other players. Any Paintie that would ordinarily be flagged (eg. for Gore) should have an attached warning for other players.
These checks will be done by myself (Admin-Mat ) or MOD-Skulldiggery . At this stage, no other mods are monitoring this thread. Do not ping either of us, but if you think for any reason that we may have missed you, PM MOD-Skulldiggery with a link to your post.

Finally, please be patient in waiting for a response. We'll try to get to everyone as promptly as possible! Happy Painting!

(gore maybe?)
It's just a sketch at the moment but would this pass as a paintie on the galaxy snake base? and if so, since the lower jaw is missing, would it need a gore tag ? ;w;

This bab o' mine got rejected on the WB base a while back, is there any way to keep the original design on the wickerbeast base with reasonable edits or will I have to lean on a shifty all the way for the character? like, what pieces make it so it deviates too much from the WB base?

Overlayed at 60%
If I were to proceed with finishing this, would it pass on a Pirate dragon or would I need to apply it to a shifty with the costume?
I'm also wondering if it's a bit too "human" looking to pass, though I don't think it exceeds the 3 allowed traits. Not certain on it though. :')
i saw a dog so perfect i gave it my entire wallet?
please ping me when replying!

Sketch (with skin color because it's relevant)

Base overlay

I already know she won't pass without the flames due to not being recognizable enough, so I used them to make the base more recognizable like with the old ones. I still have a couple of questions though:

-Is this within the human trait limit? I'm not sure if the beast cat arms will add "defined muscles" to the list, or if the scales make the skin tone count as a "pelt". I already know I have head shape and nose.

-Could I get away with this with just the flames on the head and not the wings?

This villager does wear a beast costume and is primarily made of the dragon base (just the standard one), so this should be fine as a beast dragon even though it's a standard dragon base with beast cat arms, right?

I don't know if I'm allowed to post this here, but I wish to re-upload the paintie on this villager because I uploaded the wrong size. It looks fine on the villager's page but when I set it to my active, this is what it looks like XD... It turns out that the transparent parts of the file will be considered as part of the paintie too :c Anyways the correct file is here: http://i.imgur.com/8uvMTAD.png
I emailed [email protected] but didn't get a respond yet. Sorry for the trouble and thank you!

Edit: omg Thank yall very much :")

What do I do when what I want to do is not covered at all by lineart, but the costume significantly changes the lineart? IE, Beast Velociraptor, or Sagittari Reaper?

Would this be accepted over a warrior dragon base? I had to get creative with one of the arms since the base doesn't show it. Also, the head is sorta based off the regular dragon base (http://img04.deviantart.net/0b54/i/2017/063/a/5/pyra_paintie_wip3_by_koobicorn-db17yuc.png).

Updated Frankie Mustang again:
Base overlay:
The legs follow the base closer now, but i can't bring myself to make the one leg follow closer in the hip/thigh area because the dragon base's legs are so wide, it's just too curvy for her (one of the problems with her current paintie that I am trying to fix here). Frankie Mustang's shtick is that she is female, but looks entirely like a dude by human standards in this form, because of her species' general weirdness. so i'm trying to give her narrower hips than the super curvy dragon base has without straying too far from it to need to be a Shifty. which will be a very expensive changeover that my loss aversion wants to avoid at all costs.

my question of whether or not i will have "defined human muscles" counting against me or not still hasn't been answered. i want to know my human traits i'm dealing with are skin tone, nose, and head shape. i took away more muscle definition too if that helps.

i'm not concerned with the legality of the beast cat arms since she has a beast costume and the beast cat components don't make up the majority of the paintie so the species represented is still mostly dragon. i just want to know if the buffness of the arms will count as defined muscles or not even though i tried to keep the whole thing as simplistic as possible while still hinting at her being muscular.

Hope there's no problems!

This should be fine (once a mythic costume is applied) right? Two sets of the limbs plus the head (minus the ears) line up perfectly, im not editing those at all

I just wanna make sure tho b4 I get to colouring it

Before anybody clicks these, there is a sketch of an unrealistic placenta. If that bothers you, don't look at them.



I want to check if this can pass as a dragon and not a shifty, since this is a "formatted" state for Razerel who is a dragon wearing a costume and with two painties wardrobed already, so just changing to a Shifty isn't feasible.

This is the same concept as the old generic Fordian EVO on the lizard base and Jake Sterling Jr.'s first paintie, where Fordians can be temporarily and reversibly reverted to fetuses with magic; this status is called "formatted" because it's sort of like a temporary "factory reset" to a Fordian's development. I want to design these forms for all the characters as they do all look slightly different.

Like the others the placenta will have circuit markings on it and won't be realistic or gory looking.

current wip

Would love to know if this still works with the deer base! And if not, which parts are the issues.

I don't have it drawn yet, but I have a velociraptor/ impala hybrid. Can I uploud it as a velociraptor or will I need a shifty? (I only plan on giving the velocrirapter base hooves and horns, the rest will follow the velociraptor base) If I need to upload it on a shiftie, can I still use the velociraptor base or will I need to hand draw it?

I apologize If this isn't the place to be asking.
