Please submit your designs here in this thread. Come up with a design for your dream pixpal based on one of these shadows (You can right click one of the shadows and draw over it.), it is important to note that pixpals come in colorations of 3, so if you have an idea for a theme, go nuts and most of all HAVE FUN. ;)

You do not need to be good at art, just have fun expressing yourself and your idea.

-All art must be created by yourself, no using F2U or P2U bases
-Entries will be vetted for plagiarism during judging phase, will be disqualified if found to be doing so.

Got the idea for a wood based wyvern from the first shadow so I tried to draw how something like that would look like

Definitely off base (or rather off shadow) but I hope my idea is at least somewhat clear

Cute colorful dragon/dino pals! :) the colors are orange, rose and gray (with gray being the rarest one). I don't have any good name ideas for it, I was thinking of just calling it "Cresty" or something like that x'D

and another one, Fluffox. This one's yellow, indigo and purple. They're little tricksters who love their extremely soft and fluffy tails and will do everything to keep them shiny and clean.

bigger versions below (hopefully all the links work)

Theme: Sky (Night, Dawn, Day and Dusk)
Colours: Purple, Pink/Rose, Yellow/cyan and Orange
Name: Alenka (Old Greek - Bright One; Shining One; Hebrew - of Magdala; A variation of Alena)
The marks are luminous and is used to attract prey in the night. The wings are too small to use for flight but can give a slight gliding effect if needed.

Got hit with the teeniest bit of inspiration for that third shadow, so I decided to get this out there!
Working names are Tritrail, Rayfin, or Seersoar. A more fishy-looking pixpal, since we don't seem to have a lot of those.
Though not necessarily limited to water, as they're small and light enough to float in the air. They practice intricate dances to impress those around them, though its not uncommon to find one accidentally getting their tails tangled.

Forgive me, I'm not very good at digital art, but I threw these together using hand drawn art in a print off of the outline, and coloured them in MS Paint. I call them Mojira as a joke, and because I can't think of a better name. XD Anyway, hope you like my little lizard/butterfly babies.

Masked creatures, kind of like the Draook of pixpals
Their dark bodies helps them camouflage well during the nighttimes and they like to use their wands (? or glowing orbs or whatever they can be, the right one is a fire though) to guide lost pixpets or pixpals deep into the forest and leave them alone. These often appear in scary stories for small pixpets/pixpals giving them nightmares.

Dont have many free time but i tried doing something.
I added some more body features on them (like the tails), but in general, tried to maintain similar to the original shadows.

1º shadow – Bearmer (beaver + armor)
Those beaver like pixpal love collecting all kinds of wood they find on pixpal real. They somewhat addictive to theater, pretend games and role playing games, so they construct all kinds of fun disguises and tools with the wood they collect to play around.
Color 1 – Brown – Soldier Bearmer with shield and sword made of wood.
Color 2 – Gray or black – Bearmer with dragon disguise
Color 3 – Magenta or Purple – Bearmer with a princess disguise, maybe?

2º shadow – Chameleaf (chameleon + leaf)
A strange chameleon that live in forests, they losed with time they hability of camouflage, so they wear leaves and hide on plants. In spring, they start to wear colorful flowers and berries to attract partners. On winter, they wear tree stumps, branches and snow when the leaves of the trees are scarce.
Color 1 – Green or lime – Normal leaves
Color 2 – Neutral - colorful version with flowers and berries
Color 3 – Brown, white, cyan, blue or aqua – winter version

3º shadow – Cuthieres ( cuttie + amphiptere)
Those tiny, cute, fluffy amphiptere have hair and feathers constantly growing, so they general need special care from they owners, turning them famous models on hair style contests. In nature, they fur is generally a huge mess, making them resemble big pieces of tangled wool with wings.
Color 1 – White, orange or Brown
Color 2 – Rose, Magenta – Naked neck version
Color 3 – Neutral? Dont know, but i imagine this one being a huge mess, something like a sheep but full of trash sticked to their fur.

Other sketches, this one based on the color 2 descriptions:

I did not make sketch of color 3 due to lack of time, but i hope the description can give a idea about how they are.

First idea I nicknamed Pteradot, second is Bug-O-Lantern, third is a snake made out of slime, but I have no proper name idea, maybe Gelk lol. Pteradots are fruit lovers and can mimic sounds, kinda like a parakeet. Bug-O-Lanterns are very Halloween themed so they are tricksters, except they trick you the whole year round. "Gelks" are rumored to come out of toothpaste tubes that have been exposed to magic radiation, making the contents sentient. Gelks are also semi transparent, hence the layers visible.
