Well, not to shamelessly plug, but perhaps you'd be interested in my species, Solarclops. I can't think of any OS off the top of my head, most I've been bookmarking are critters of a kind.
I feel like in 2019 I want to get more actively involved with other species as well, and what's the better way to find them than hearing people's recommendations! I usually prefer posting these kind of threads to elsewhere but I feel like with CS talk it's sadly the safest choice to just post this here and I apologize.
Open, semi-open and closed are all fair game, although I prefer people suggesting me things they'd imagine me being interested in rather than advertising just whatever.
Things I really particularly like
- Species that are relatively easy to draw (so not too busy in design; however I'll look at anything!)
- Human faced designs (the rest of the body is like whatever)
- MYO events (I usually prefer making MYOs than buying new designs)
- Active/semi-active and/or friendly communities
- Species with fur on their bodies
- Socks/gloves/lingerie etc type of markings
- More adult oriented species (but not strictly NSFW)
- Hooved or paw feet
- Feathery wings
- Centaur/lamia/dragon type of bodies
- Optional feral forms / multiple forms
- Cutesy aesthetic
- Monstrous humanoid designs
For the record the species (aside from my own vetehi) I'm atm involved in are dainties, zodai, perfumimis and mimsies! Here are also some species people suggested to me already on my bulletin
Things I'm currently not looking for:
- Feral species (anthros are ok)
- Strictly NSFW species
- Species strictly tied to a certain worldsetting
- Species that for some reason don't allow you to pick just any gender for your character (so no male/female only species etc)
- ARPGs, unless it's fully optional
You don't need to limit things to just the "really like" list! As long as they're not on the "not looking for" list I'll take a look at anything!!
Psssstttt, Ping me Feb first. I will have a. Open MYO event for official release of my species. Humanoid Demon Bunnies. :3 Called the LunEars
No problem~ Good luck in the search! I'm always lurking for new species too. NOT THAT I NEED MORE CHILDREN. But once you start collecting you can't stop! XD
Fur bodies, somewhat NSFW (if you want them to be), human face, myo events,, active community (via discord I think)
If you haven't heard of them yet I cannot recommend Wildren enough, bonus side is Smooshkin is really lax about designing/ownership so they really feel like any normal OC.
The only down side is there seems to only be a MYO event every 3ish months so they're a little rare, but other than that, they're awesome!
I have my Rybbonchildren; they're semi-closed, but the basic version is 100% free to make and I'd be willing to work out something if you want an Artisan MYO.
There's also Stardragons; MYOs are a roughly once-a-year thing and they're kind of pricey, but the next MYO event is very soon, common MYOs are unlimited, and the community is very active and nice.
longlongbois are a semi-open species; they're a bit like ferret taurs? I like 'em.
Cadea I haven't seen any MYOs for, but they have a lot of open adopts and they're really cute lil bugs.
Ouramori have a MYO event planned for late february, and while the community is small they're very nice.
Gleamstic have MYO events pretty frequently and I think they're quite cute.
I know there's more but my brain isn't cooperating. :V;;
Ooh Archanes are a good one that you might like, if you haven't already heard of/become involved with! The group/Discord is pretty active. Pyrians are also super cute, I just found out about them recently since they're new.
Also idk if you'd be interested but I'll just recommend my all-time fave CS ever, Driftlings <3 They have a lovely, down-to earth community that's extremely casual, relaxed, and welcoming! I've been in the Discord about a month or so and I have yet to see a single bit of drama. And everyone thinks up such amazing stories for their Driftlings, it's definitely a creative and fun species. The Discord is very active, and a lot of people love to HC, RP, and just chat about their Drifts! I highly recommend the species. If you can draw, I think they're actually still holding a 'Trade for a MYO slot' ongoing event and also I believe there will be a MYO event at the beginning of February.
Anyways, I wish you much luck in finding new species to enjoy!
Thank you everyone for your suggestions!! I'll definitely make sure to check all of them out, I really appreciate all the links!! ; v ; < 3
They have a weird snout, but for the most part they can also be drawn kind of like this! v
wip base from kayamishi!
Once I finish off the extra sheets, i'll be hosting another MYO soon!
