Thank you for making this thread, as I've been worried about a CA I've been working hard on but I've heard different opinions from friends whether this is ‘intense’ body horror or not. I personally feel it is within the goofy fantasy creature realm. I've avoided adding additional eyes or details that would make it intense from a cartoon hand.

Thank you for your time.

Thanks for making this! it will be quite helpful!

I wanted to ask, if we were to gain an adoptable from somewhere and drew it. would said adoptable be allowed as a piece of CA? the adopt belongs to whoever purchased it and the original artwork of the adopt is not used as it is redrawn. but is it allowed? I don't know is this violates some form of copyright or something as I've seen crazier stuff happen, so I want to check.

an easy, but time consuming way to figure out area percentages is this:

I first work out how many squares are fully covered by the animal, in this case it was 28, (the symbols are so i could find all the spaces and count them after) how many areas cover just half a square of the grid, there was 14 and etc etc

Once I had those numbers I multiplied how many spaces fit that percentage, so for 80% i multipled 12 by 80, then divided the answer by 100. Which left me with 9.6 full squares. wash and repeat for the rest, added up each total to get the answer of a (rounded up to the nearest whole number) 55 full squares.

Then for any apparel that may cover more than 80% of the wolf, you would do the same, using the same grid. Lets say the apparel covers 40 squares (i have not calculated what yours actually covers), thats the final number you get after doing the adding up etc I don't know the proper calculation to do, but I know how to find the percentage “difference”

So you would multiply 40 by 55, then divide by 100 which leaves 22. Obviously the apparel is covering more than 20% of the wolf so we can reasonably assume that we need to take 22 out of 100 and see whats left, which is 78.


If you need further clarification I can try to simplify it, I just wrote this on a stream of consciousness.

I can also see if I can't make these grids for each breed/gender if anyone thinks I should make a separate post!

oh my god. I was hoping for just a binary yes/no from quiche but I'm kind of in love with everything you wrote here. This is a really delightful way of breaking down images into percentages and I'm tempted to just do it for fun now??

I've been told there's ways to get programs to just count the pixels, which is basically your method but mechanized, but I was figuring the 80% rule was more of a rule of thumb rather than an hard line, honestly!

I'm so glad you like it!

I figure the rule is basically there to say “dont cover the whole wolf” but with the 80% there just to make it a little clearer cut, so I doubt your design would be an issue at all!

I saw a couple questions asking basically the same thing and thought it'd be fun to see if I could work out a way to do it! I didnt know there were programs that could calculate it honestly, so thanks for that knowledge ^-^ It was definitely more fun doing this here than it was trying to do the same thing in advanced mathematics way back in school XD

Hello! I would like to ask if the coverage does not exceed 80% of the wolves need to consider the issue of transparency? For example, my decoration covers 100% of the wolf, but its transparency is 1%. I want to know whether this kind of coverage is 100% or there are other independent calculation methods.

So with my design, I'm doing a wolf cape inspired by the Zonai outfits in Zelda. I was wonder if I drew my design vague enough or do I still break the copyright rule?

Hi, just an update, I'll be working through the above comments these over Monday and Tuesday with my CA Trainee so we can discuss these as I train them. Thank you so much for your patience with us!

Edit: Plans delayed, we'll be commencing Wednesday and Thursday

Hiya! I'm working on scales apparel right now, and wanted to ask about if something would press up against the gore rules;
I was wondering if I would be able to do something like I did in this image (a skin for Flight Rising)

where within one of the cups is a heart- not from the creature, but also sitting in blood. If this combined is too much, would an anatomical heart with no blood still cross the line? Should it help, here is an image of the (empty) wolf scales wip.

Ty for the help!
