Hello, everyone! :) 

I thought I'd make this post to help anyone that is confused about making and submitting CYOs. 

First off, here are the basics:



First you need to find a base you'd like to use. You cannot just freehand these. Here is where you can pick a base: 


To make a CYO you need a CYO brush. You can try and get a brush from The Wishing Wells or you can find them when mining sometimes!  

(You must have ZC to use The Wishing Wells.)

From The Wishing Wells or mining you can obtain an alted or non alted CYO brush. 

Non-alted means your pet can only have one color, while Alted means it can have up to 6 color variations! 

Your pet can have up to four levels (stages) with either brush! Though, it doesn't have to.

It can have anywhere between 1-4 levels (stages.)

(Baby, Child, Teen, Adult.) (Egg counts as level 0)

Example: Alt 1 of Colorful Storm Cat and it's stages.

(Egg) (Level 0)-->egg1completeff2SMALL.png.173d2eda4bf03000c9f208c4a97ecd00.png (Baby) (Level 1)-->babyalt1SMALL.png.7ea3649162778c30621089bbf9629c6b.png (Child) (Level 2)-->5a287789bc955_childalt1completeSMALL.png.ffc5d312041a44d74dee5f45cdb1f035.png

 (Teen) (Level 3)-->teeneditCOMPLETEEditv2SMALL.png.7c3ee929f1ec3a5571899dcb73b866a7.png (Adult) (Level 4)-->adultCompleteoneSMALL.png.a426f78339e6bf26b0300e264e89b648.png

And here is the full set with all six different colorations: 


You must also have access to one of the following drawing programs: 

GIMP (Which is free.)

Pixlr (Which is also free.)

Adobe Photoshop

Paint Tool Sai.

I personally use Paint Tool Sai. :) 




How to format your images for the CYO:



Okay, once you finish coloring your CYO you must make sure of some things.

1. Your images must have a transparent background.

2. Your images must be 100x100 or 150x150. Any smaller or bigger isn't allowed. 

3. Your images must be .png files. 




And finally, how to submit it! 



Firstly, you need to submit a name for your CYO here: http://www.petadoptables.com/custompet.php?do=color


Make sure you select the right brush with the name!

If you select a regular, non-alted CYO Brush then you'll only be able to upload one alt! 

Once it is approved, it'll say approval granted. You should get a notification when that happens.


When that does happen, you can start adding the images for your CYO.

Click where is says Approval Granted on this page: http://www.petadoptables.com/custompet.php?do=color


You need to go to Create New CYO and select it.

The first thing you'll be asked to do is upload the egg, which is pretty simple. 

Just make sure you read "How to format your images for the CYO" above. Also, make sure you're sure you uploaded the right thing before submitting.

You won't be able to change it afterwards.


Once you've uploaded the egg, go to "Add Levels to CYO." 

This CYO only has one level, so I'm only adding one! 

When adding levels, use Alt 1.

Example: I uploaded Alt 1, level 1. 

If you have more than one level, continue to use Alt 1 for the levels. 

Alt 1, Level 2 

Alt 1, Level 3

and so on. 

Don't add more levels than you have/need. 



Next, go to "Add Alts to CYO" and select your CYO.

Once there, you'll be brought here.

The Alt 1 I submitted for "Level 1" shows up first.

See how all the different alts I uploaded are beside the 1 on the left? Well, that's because they're Level 1 alts.

(They're beside the 50 on the right because it takes 50 clicks for a pet to reach level 1. Also, notice how the eggs are Level 0.)

If you're uploading a CYO with more than one Level (Stage), you will upload Level 2 images next to the 2, Level 3 images next to the 3, and so on.

But, since these only have one Level, those other levels aren't listed. 

If your pet has less than 6 alts, then upload those and leave the rest blank. 


Once you're done with all of that you can scroll down and submit your CYO! 

Once submitted you must wait for it to be approved. Once it is approved you'll receive a notification with a code. 

You can redeem the pets here: http://www.petadoptables.com/promo.php





Alright, I believe I covered everything! If anyone has any further questions, please ask! 

I know it's a bit confusing. It's still a bit confusing for me. 

Once I make another fully staged and alted CYO I'll probably update this post and try and explain that a bit better.

      I won 2 CYO brushes with chests, and I would try to create a pet, but the "Download the CYO bases" link is broken and goes to an Error 404 / page not found. Is there another way to get the .psd bases, please ?
      (I'll need time to submit something, as I'm not very familiar with this kind of software.)

      --Jade's Weekly AR Drop--
      Hello and welcome to my AR drop thread! I have been doing AR drops for quite some time now as well as AR cyo's and have gathered quite the collection of AR content! I mostly post CYO's I create for the AR here. Each cyo is either made by me or commissioned and its only purpose is for the AR I don't sell them so please don't bother asking! All pets can be found in the AR or obtained by donating.
      Click us please!!!!
      For every 100 clicks one of these pets below gets, I will drop a special Click generated AR CYO. These cyo's are only dropped after 100 clicks are added onto the pet the cyo was created for... so if you want to see more pets, go ahead and give them a click!

      Below are the current Click generated AR Cyo's available.
      Donate 50 or MORE pets to the Weeky drop and you get one Keeper of Sygal in exchange!
      CYO's Currently in Rotation:
      These are the CYO's that are currently available for AR drops! Each week I drop a couple of each pet into the AR! These pets will be released for the AR until the limit is reached.
      Retired AR CYO's:
      These are the AR cyo's I've hit the limit on, if you would like to see one of these put back into rotation you can always donate ZP to fund a potion!
      These are some of the CYO's waiting to be produced, sometimes I just need to finish the art or am waiting until I have enough ZP to get the cyo on site! You can also donate 2 ZP to help get the cyo moving along and you get one of the pet when its released!
      If there are certain pets you;'d like to see in the next AR drop just post below and I can usually get a few for the next drop. And feel free to suggest any ideas or cyo ideas!
      Have AR CYO suggestions? Just go to this thread here.
      2ZP -- 1 AR CYO
      5 ZP -- 3 AR CYO's
      Also feel free to post the AR CYO's you guys find I would love to see where some of them end up!

      This is just an image I thought I'd post onto the image gallery in case anyone didn't see the post about the free Christmas CYOs I'm giving away.
      Here's the link to where you can get some of these for free: 
      Please don't ask for them on this image. Just go to the post, read it, and then comment on the post, please.

      The same rule applies for these CYOs. If get one from me you may NOT resell them. If you decide you no longer want them, send them back to me.
      Here's the post for full details:
      The Spooky Marionette Cat is for sale now (300 ZC)!  I've only posted a few examples of the possible alts for each here, so be sure to check out the post. I cannot 100% guarantee alts, but I may be able to some. 
      The Collector Ghoul Kitsune is not here yet, but hopefully it will be soon! (It's actually somewhat transparent, but you can't really tell against a white background.) I had been working on this one for a while now, I'm glad I finally got around to finishing it! It will cost 450 ZC.

      looking for someone to commission to help make a CYO I had an idea for, I have a few pictures and if you are interested PM me!
      Post guide
      1. Intro
      2. CYOs (I don't think I will ever make customs)
      3. For Sale
      4. Alt Swaps
      Intro for CYOs
      I just started making CYOs and my first one just got approved so I decided to create a shop. I have more CYOs, just looking for ZP so I can make them private probably never going to get the ZP to make them private so I'm making them all Egg Drop pets. Feel free to swap/trade if you don't get the alt you are looking for. I've never really messed around with photoshop before but I'm trying my best and viewing a bunch of tutorials so I hope to get better
      Some quick rules for CYOs: (please read)
      ☾Please don't resell the CYOs you buy from me
      ☾You can trade the CYOs with me or someone else (since they are Egg Drop, I can't control what alt I give you so it is perfectly fine if you want to swap for another egg)
      ☾The artist is always myself
      ☾I'm willing to swap CYOs/Customs so just ask 
      ☾Mention gender while posting (or you can just say any gender is fine)
      ☾I come online daily (unless I'm busy) so I should be able to get your order the next day
      ☾I will mention on my forum profile if I'm going to be away so bear with me if you don't get your order immediately

      Sorry for being inactive lately guys, with all of the incoming holidays I've been pretty swamped, especially because there are a bunch of upcoming birthdays I'm planning for as well. I'll try to get on more frequently!!
