Rock candy dogs closed species

Journal Entry: Wed Jul 9, 2014, 12:19 AM


Oki so i've had an idea for quite a while that i finally decided to work on today xD I did a few concepts of them, but they're still a wip : 3 I was hoping I could get a few suggestions on them, i'm trying to make them unique 'xD here you go: sta.sh/21bwgah6jjja?edit=1
also, i'll probably add more stuff in there later when I get some more ideas xD i've always wanted to make a species <33

maybe there can be 2 types of rock candy dogs: greater(rare) and lesser(common)

well that's what there already is
the more the crystals, the rarer they are
the ref can get a bit confusing, but rock candy dogs naturally have claws but the bigger they are the more rare, same with the crystals on their backs

maybe for a rare trait crystals can be growing out of joints or even cheeks (maybe even the top of the head in the shape of a tiara or a crown or something)!  Another sweet idea I had was a trait being where crystals form on the nose bridge/top of the muzzle up to the forehead or something. As for marking ideas how about adding flowers? Like the four petaled round flower type pattern marking thing like this: sta.sh/0devk8u7ewd
For the tails how about a trait where the ball has a spike of crystal at the tip or something like that! u7u
for color ideas I vote that the bones and the crystals keep the same color this also includes the claws and the teeth? Possibly the tongue nose and paw pad colors can be the same!
That's about all I got right now but I hope my ideas help somehow!

Interesting idea I hope you're able to mold out into something very unique and great but I am on the same boat as firealpacas sadly I don't have any input that would help all I can say is finally a dog that isn't a pastry I hope these work out because rock candy is awesome

lol! we're trying to make it more unique than just a plain pastry/dessert/food themed dog, and to give them limits. we're creating backstories/behaviors too, of course it's going to take a while to develop before the species is at it's finest, this is just the beginning, we started with a small idea and followed through with it. ^^
some of the thing's we've done so far is in the description of the sta.sh link in the journal ;0;; im trying to help as much as i can lol!!
if you have anymore input or critique we'd be willing to help improve the species, but not change it entirely. ^^

Ah yes sure I'll do my best to think up helpful things I wouldn't dream of suggesting anything that would change them completely they look fine to me they just need to be spiced up a little bit I'm sure I'll be inspired to write a nice long list of things that can be done later because I do like how they look what you've presented is more like a beta than anything else a nice one too

rock candy dogs are closed though, but some of the ideas will probably be put to use in the future :0

They seem really good
and i dont want to seem like "That guy"
But they are just rock candy themed dogs ...
I think that, maybe to make them more "Original"
You could give them hollow eyes with crystals INSIDe them like small crystal caves? same with in the ears

I hope i dont seem rude ah /)^(\ sorry

we updated the sta.sh link :D you should check out what we added!! we're also going to follow through with your idea, but their bodies are going to be hollow and their bones are made of hard rocks/crystals ;w;

They're themed off of sweets, but based off of rock candy xD they can have different flavours and stuff but they're still in progression xD things will probably change later

maybe when they "die" they become in-cased in they're own crystals ;3;

they're tears/blood can be sugar water since that's what rock candy crystals are c:

rain is they're enemy since rock candy kinda dissolves in water unless it has sugar in it. so maybe they have a way of drawing in they're crystals or regrowing them (excluding the cracked heart) if they are somehow dissolved. but if they are fully removed from they're body (example an animal tears it out of they're back) the crystal simply wont grow again. like if you tear a flower out of the ground from it's root, it wont grow again.

maybe the rare-er species of rock candy dogs are able to shoot out they're crystals from they're backs kinda like porcupines with they're quills. used only for self defense and such. the reason only the rare-er ones are able to do this, is because they are able to do what i stated before which is re-generate they're crystals. but in this case they are able to do it at a very rapid pace.

If they are "social" animals maybe they have ranks like in wolf packs. if they have a normal tail they are at a moderate level, the more decorated and bulky tails are held by "alphas" and the broken or shorter tails are owned by the "omegas" and "lower classed"
this can also correspond with they're markings

these are just a few ideas i got in mind for this species, in-case it crosses your mind that you would like help in creating the species i'd love to help more.
i could be like a co-creator or somthin xD
either way i hope you come up with great ideas for the species and when they are completed i would love to get one myself.

as for suggestions, you could also add another tail where it is 'wrapped'

also decaying crystals (crystals have holes in them, short lifespand thing)
