Say WHAT? Check out this tumblr post to see updated designs for Aequis types here
I hope to add on to this journal with more Aequis references/resources, etc. Next up is basic marking and colors by type, and details on crests/tails.
As for customs, I hope to be reopening them by March 1st. Why the long wait? Because I'm still fully immersed in time consuming client work, I'd feel dreadful for accepting payments now for Aequis custom slots that may not get started until April, at the earliest. Hopefully this will keep folks from feeling cheated. That being said, if you are impatient and don't feel comfortable waiting more than 2 months for a design or commission from me, please do not order. I have only 3 hours a day to work on commissioned work, and no one wants a sloppy, rushed final product. I put hours of work and care into everything I do, please understand this. If I feel you are being too pushy, I will refund your commission. Thank you for understanding!
I'm looking to take on 4 slots for starters, and base prices will likely be raised again after these are filled. (Which is more than fair, considering how many hours I put into them. I estimate to start them at $120 after this next round is filled, just a heads up!) Otherwise, keep your eyes peeled for pre-made designs at lower price points. (If all goes well and I can be extra productive this year, I will be putting out planetary themed Aequis for auction!)
Speaking of, there are still two available pre-made designs.Available Designs:
Available for $80 USD
Available for $55 USDCustom Design Status:
Queue currently closed, estimated re-opening March 1st. Average wait time is 1-3 months, depending on position in queue. Custom Pricing Details:
As of July 2016, all Aequis designs start at $100 USD. This base price includes all Aequis non-hybrid types (ie. grasslander, islander, mountain, etc.) with on-type coloration, etc.
For hybrid types: Three pricing tiers.
Common hybrids: Perching x perching, ground x ground, habitats overlapping: +$10 (ex: Mountain x Arctic, temperate islander x southern islander, Grasslander x desert)
Uncommon hybrids: Perching x ground, as long as habitats overlap. Potential deliberate breeding: +$20 (ex: temperate arboreal x Mountain, tropical terrestrial x tropical arboreal)
Rare/Semi-domestic hybrids: perching x ground, habitats incompatible. +$30 (ex: tropical arboreal x desert, wetlands x mountain, etc.)
Examples of Aequis hybrid tiers can be found here: pallanophblargh.tumblr.com/pos…
Eventually I should have a chart for these!
