They can do a pencil drawing with minimal color and background like the aerial predator at the bottom, a drawing with basic color like the two critters in the middle, or a fully colored and shaded painting with a simple background like the critter at the top.

Species Universe Entries

Random from Favourites

You'll find all the species we couldn't include in the group here.
I have a closed species, I took time and effort into thinking about how to arrange this species and finally got them worked out. My issue is, my ref sheets always turn out terrible, so I would like to know if someone would be willing to help me.?
Sorry this journal took so long to post, I was hoping that we might get another few entries if I put this off (we did get one more). Unfortunately no entries where submitted for Contest #2 so we only have to vote on the order of the winners for Contest #3. I will be revamping this as the contest system is not attracting enough entrants.

Please comment with which of the following two entries you prefer:

Klackle Reference by shmekldorf Anomalous Equine Species (Reference Sheet) by Ozzkat

----

So we only got one entry. I'm going to extend this contest because I feel like the two months I picked were not the best for a contest considering a lot of people (including myself) were in exams or getting ready for the holidays. Extending it until February 1st which is the last time I'll extend it. Hopefully we'll get some more entries.

Edit: the planet has been named Plerasea! Here is also a link to the themes (which is on this deviation): V Map Reference by pandemoniumfire

We have two contests this time and a 2 months to do them in. In case you don't like drawing animals, there is a plant contest running at the same time. You can enter both if you wish. The last winner has yet to give me a name for the planet so we shall wait until I hear from them.

Contest Entries Information


If your entry is not here, then it hasn't been entered into the contest yet. You may re-enter a species from a previous species universe contest as long as it did not become canon for a planet. Comment here with your deviation to enter after submitting it to the group. We may automatically enter you here but re-entering will require commenting.

Submit your entries to the Contest Folder. We will move your species to their planet folder when they become canon.

Information


The Species Universe is a project that brings together the creative minds of the Species-Directory group to forge a collaborative, detailed universe filled with species created by the members. Species are selected to become canon in one of the 13 planets through contests and, every so often, a special round will appear that will have members contesting canon species against each other in various ways. To add to the challenge, each planet will be themed to give depth to the species created. The contest model was created by pandemoniumfire

Hello, got a request to add one of the critter's I created to the group. I'll accept the request so long as as it simply remains a showpiece in the gallery and isn't used as a species in the world here.

Hi, the world creation we have going is only for species entered in the contest. Any pieces not entered in this competition are just showcased here.

Thanks for the request. I haven't said yes to it yet, though. I already submitted the Mind Spillers to floraverse (a collaborative to semi-collaborative world-building group), and I want to make sure both you and Floraverse would be okay with me putting the same species in two different world-building groups before I accept your request.

I don't see a problem with this as this group isn't a world-building group. It's a group to collect and display species made by deviants. As such any species submitted here aren't used for world building, just for others to look at. I hope you'll accept the invite now you know what this group is about.

Oh. I saw the Species Universe journal entry on the group's page and mistakenly thought the whole group was based on that. I probably should have looked at the "About Us" portion first.

Now that that's cleared up, I accepted the request.
