Here are some image examples! One character is the original and the mascot for the species, and the other is a custom I made for my friend.
Okay, so I don't know how I came up with this but here you go anyway. Hydro-spheres are basically anthro animals except they have glass spheres filled with water in place of a head. The water usually doesn't fill up all the way and there can be some aquatic plants in there. Also, there MUST be some sort of aquatic animal inside as well. The animal is enchanted and has shrunken in size, and are the main life source for the hydro-sphere. If these animals die then so does the hydro-sphere.
There are also many sub-species! Sub-species mostly differ from hydro-spheres because of the contents inside the glass spheres, including the animals found within them, with few exceptions. Here's a list of all of them:
Tera-sphere (plant life)
Ice-sphere (icy environment/frozen body of water)
Lava-sphere (lava lamp)
Snow-sphere (snow globe)
Glitter-sphere (same thing as snow-sphere but with glitter)
Techno-sphere (spherical screen)
Crystal-sphere (crystal ball)
8-sphere (magic 8-ball)
Mythic-sphere (mythical environment/creatures)
Glow-sphere (kinda like a glow stick)
Electro-sphere (plasma ball)
Elemental-sphere (elements on the periodic table like liquid mercury, liquid nitrogen, etc.)
Disaster-sphere (inside contains a storm)
Morph-sphere (can be any of the above EXCEPT the glass is shaped like the head of an animal or a different 3D shape)
Glass Being (can also be any of the above EXCEPT it's entire body is made from glass)
I'll definitely update this thread with more info, images, concept art, species refs, etc. I hope y'all like the idea so far though!!!! I'd love some feedback, it'd really help a ton!
Oh gosh these are so cute! ZugZwang853 are you still doing free customs or are they closed? I'd also love to know what the rules are for making our own!
Steampunk-Rose Thanks! And yes, I am still taking free customs though I might be kinda slow to get it done because I have a lot going on at the moment. As for the rules, I haven't come to a final decision yet so for now i'm pretty open to whatever you want. If you want to make your own just show me the design when you're done and i'll most likely approve unless there's something that clashes with what I had in mind for the species.
Oo wonderful, and I'm alright with the wait <3
I'd love an Ice-sphere one if that's alright? Maybe with a polar bear? (do the animals for all sub species have to be aquatic?)
And I'll probably make my own design once I finish up some comms and owed art <3
Steampunk-Rose sure, I can do that! And the animals do not have to be aquatic, the examples I came up with just happened to both have aquatic animals lol.
TuxTheStrayCat yeah sure! What would you like? The rules at the moment are pretty loose so most things will probably be allowed for now.
TheStrayCat I can do that! I’ll have it done as soon as I can!
userthatisnotauser yes, you can make your own! The rules very flexible at the time being, just please show me the finished design so I can approve it.
Rexcaliburr the body and ear type/shape can be pretty much anything, the examples I had done just happened to be the same. And I’m also glad you like my species! I I’m still taking customs at the moment and can do one for you if you’d like!
everesii yup, they can be feral!
