Pelt Lineart Variations

Hey, so this has been something that's been bothering me for a while. If a cat is described with a ragged pelt or a short/longer tail their lineart of their images gets tweaked, but if they're continuously described as fluffy or something, they're just made a long hair (i.e. Cloudtail). I personally think that if a certain attribute is used to describe them continuously; like Cloudtail always being called fluffy/longhaired, that their lineart/blanks should be made fluffy/sleek/ragged/etc. Still a bit of a vague idea, but thoughts?

I'm sorry, but I don't think I'm understanding you correctly. We are already doing that. Normal longhaired cats get a longhaired lineart, and ragged, matted, or patchy fur gets a lineart change. If I'm totally missing your point, forgive me. Iveh Yo! 18:59, November 2, 2012 (UTC)

I don't quite get what you mean either. Could you elaborate on this a little more? Jayce Atlas falls  ( 19:54, 11/2/2012 )

I mean like, Feathertail is mentioned several times with a really fluffy, plumy tail and her chararts reflect that, but there are other longhairs who've been mentioned with plumy tails and their lineart isn't tweaked. I think I asked this once for Graystripe or something and was told that it was because they weren't named for it or something and I don't think that makes a whole lot of sense if we've already gone and tweaked Feathertail and Redtail. And for Cloudtail; true he's a long hair, but he's also mentioned several times as being extremely fluffy. I think the linearts are kind of a base to start with and alterations of description can be added on. ScarletwindGo Beyond Plus Ultra!! 20:28, November 2, 2012 (UTC)

Ohhh ok, well, how would one go about making it look fluffy, in such a small blank? I know to make the edges smooth, not sharp, but on a small blank that would be hard. Maybe for those cats, we could do a fur texture? And no, it shouldn't be on the basis that the cat was named for that. If they are mentioned as such as we can get a concensus, then no cat with such a description should not have their charart tweaked. Iveh Yo! 21:30, November 2, 2012 (UTC)

Oooooh, so that's what you mean. I kinda agree with that. This would also apply to Hollyleaf, correct? She's described with a bushy tail on more than one occasion... I think there's a couple more, Cloudtail being one of them. Jayce Atlas falls  ( 21:33, 11/2/2012 )

Well to an extent, we already do that. We do it when they're named for it, and when they're described as having, say, especially fluffy fur and such. Since things like a plumy tail or something could simply mean longhaired, we only change those type of things if it says they have it, specifically moreso than average cats. I do agree though, that Cloudtail should be made fluffy. He's called especially fluffy many times. However we shouldn't go making especially fluffy lineart for cats who were simply mentioned like that on a couple occasions, such as, say, Birhgtheart. And no cloudy, I believe Hollyleaf's only been mentioned with a fluffy tail once or twice. Hence why she was shorthair for so long. There are very few cats who'd still need to be tweaked, Cloudtail, I believe Featherwhisker... not sure on him, and maybe a couple others. We really don't need to go overboard on it though, as the longhaired lineart is there for a reason. That's why we only change them when they're described as especially fluffy or something.

StarClan cats hold no rank

This fact is stated by the Erins and is mentioned in the books. There are no leaders, medicine cats, or the likes in StarClan. And, as shown by Smallstar, Swiftpaw, and Shellheart, cats can change age when they go to StarClan as well, either aging or growing younger. And, honestly, this project has made warrior chararts for a lot of cats that are never mentioned as warriors but are seen in StarClan.

So by that logic I think a new blank for StarClan cats should be introduced. It's an idea that's been sitting in the back of my head for a while now.

I know it's a big project to take on, but honestly, why not? If need be, it could be saved for a later date even.

Anyway, just throwing that out there. I know it's not my most elegant proposal, but I'm tired at the moment.

Ah, as an afterthought, I'd think that the Dark Forest cats would not get a special lineart, as they do hold rank. Shelly For a limited time only 18:32, November 2, 2012 (UTC)

I agree with this. I honestly do. It's been said time and time again, both in books and by the Erins, that StarClan does not hold rankings, and they are all equal. A StarClan blank would be a nice idea, since, we're technically assuming they're still holding their ranks they had when they died. Smallstar is the biggest reason I'm supporting this; it's clear as day that StarClan cats /do/ change ages when they die; one even becoming a leader. Jayce Atlas falls  ( 19:53, 11/2/2012 )

Seems legit. But would this stand for every cat that's died or just for cats who are seen in StarClan/Dark Forest/etc. And would this apply to Tribe of Endless Hunting? ScarletwindGo Beyond Plus Ultra!! 20:29, November 2, 2012 (UTC)

I never really thought of this before, but now it seems like a good idea. And I would be guessing that it also applied to the Tribe of Endless Hunting, or do we know too little about them? Mistypebble 23:55, November 2, 2012 (UTC)

I agree. It's a great idea Shelly. Blanks for StarClan, Dark Forest and Tribe of Endless Hunting cats would be great! 8D Berry Midnight Monster's Parade! 00:53 Sat Nov 3

This has been suggested a couple times and shot down each time, however I do completely agree they should have blanks. the only problem being, though they can change age when the join StarClan, some stay at kit age, such as Mosskit, Adderkit, and Blossomkit. What would happen for those characters? As the blanks would probably have to be made in the form of a full grown cat. Also, as clarification, only confirmed StarClan cats would get these images, correct? If so, I do support this. Paleh Send help 04:50, November 3, 2012 (UTC)

I can't begin to tell you how glad I am that you suggested this. I agree completely, and most of my reasoning has already been expressed by other users above. However, now that Paleh mentioned it, I am curious as to what we would do for Mosskit, Adderkit, and Blossomkit. And, I would assume it would only be for confirmed StarClan cats. It wouldn't make too much sense otherwise, unless we created another blank for 'dead cats', which I wouldn't support....we'd be getting too nit-picky at that point. Rainlegs 05:01, November 3, 2012 (UTC)

Eh, it's a cool idea. It be kind of neat seeing different blanks for the StarClan cats, other than the rank that they died at. It'd signify that they had indeed passed away and gone to StarClan. Would we make just StarClan, or the Dark Forest also? Forgive me if this has been answered before, I didn't bother to read everything xD Splook sweet  creature 17:31, November 3, 2012 (UTC)

Well, just to say, I'm back. I couldn't stay away from you guys that long.<3
