I have gone through all the entries  and i have finally decided who I like the best and feel works the best into the world!  I also wanted to choose entries that did not look to much like a finnedyr to begin with like bodyshape. THERE WERE Lots of amazing enteries! but could only be 4 winners! The criteria I wrote down at the beginning of the contest had a lot to do with why I choose the ones under and why I didnt choose others. I felt like the ones under really fit the criterias I added. I had many other favourites to, but I felt many of them looked to much like cats or dogs, which might be the reason why they did not get picked. BUt great work! :D fun to see so many people design creative things! I hope you keep the ones you made open for others who really loved them to make!

ANYWHO TIME FOR RESULTS!! dundundunnnn!!!

Winner of Fire cathegory goes to:
Flintmaw - Fire Based Creature by StickFigureQueen by StickFigureQueen
Out of all the firecreatures, I felt like this really was SPOT on! I absolutely love the bodyanatomy, it looks like a great climber AND a fast runner, I like how it looks all warm and fiery without having fire there at all or having any red dramatic colors

Winner of Air cathegory goes to:
Air Creature - Crann by Stormful by Stormful
This is my favourite design out of ALL the entries!! What an amazing idea to make them creatures that hide in plain sight, yet so big. I love everything about these! <3

Winner of Earth cathegory goes to:
Charadim- Contest Entry by sadslug by sadslug
I LOVE how sturdy these look, and how natural it feels that they live underground. Which makes sense why they have growth appearing on them since its moist down there. This was the hardest cathegory to choose from since I had several favourites, but this is the one I liked the best. And works well with all the others as a more compacted animal. I Love the idea of creating structures over their burrows :D so creative!

Winner of Pet cathegory goes to:
Gloopies by MikeyOpossum by MikeyOpossum
I LOVE THESE because they work as pets for everone! they look like something which can live under water, in caves, in the air, in fur wherever! So it was my favourite pet from the beginning! So simple and so cute :icontearplz: <333

Winner of Predator cathegory goes to:
Dovakhan - OPEN SPECIES by invisiBeelity by invisiBeelity
I Choose these because I love how their skulls/teeth vary in shape and not just a tiny part, the whole skull!  I also love the dark scary look but yet it works together with the other deisngs and then the bright dramatic colors almost like a warning I LOVE how they seem to be able to get to everyplace, like their huge paws and long reptile tails make them seem like good swimmers, diggers , climbers and slim body runners. So this was a great design to hunt everyone else down.

Are people allowed to sell designs of these secondary creatures? Or are they free-only like the Finnedyrs? I ask because this person is doing point adopts of Dovakhans:
griffsnuff Nov 26, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
That has to be up to the creator of the desings, so you need to ask them

Question: was one of the requirements that they be free to own?

I found some adoptables of one of the species for 80 points, not by the original owner, by a different person.
griffsnuff Nov 27, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
xD NO, what I ment is if its OK for the orioginal artist that people make designs and sell them then its ok. I jhave no control over how people will allow and not allow with their species

Ohhh! Thanks, i was curious ;3 I think i'm going to make one of them ;) Thanks for clearing that up!
