Q: How do I create an adoptable?

 • You may click on your username in the top right corner, look for "My Adoptables", click on the "+" box beside it and you will be taken to the Adoptable Creation page.

Note: You are currently able to upload the sizes 85x110 and 130x145. Your adoptable must be exactly these sizes or it will fail to upload; which seems to be the most causes for upload failures.

Q: Can I upload more than 1 adoptable?

• While we currently do not have a multi-upload feature, you may upload more than 1 adoptable. Depending on your account membership status, it will determine how many adoptables you are allowed to upload per day.

Q: Must the Adoptables be drawn only by me, can I upload artwork of others?

• No, you may not upload someone elses artwork, this is called plagiarism and is against the rules. If your artwork is deemed not to be drawn by you, the creation WILL be deleted and you will recieve a warning. You yourself must only upload your own artwork, however, if another user has bases and templates that are free to use for others, that means you have granted permission to use them, but you must credit them upon uploading.

 

Q: Can I upload Adoptables drawn on paper?

•  Sure! You may used scanned drawings. However, it is recommended your adoptable to be transparent, and resizing may destroy some detail.
