Final Submission Post

All artists must make a final submission post conforming to the shiny palette rules (listed above) and the following:

Shiny takes inspiration from the Silk Road by taking up Chinese influences. It’s normal white attire is replaced with Red Silk, and it’s Gems take the form of Jade. It’s fur changes to a white & grey tone to better complement the new Clothing colors.
The original sprite had the clothing and gem use the same white, so in order to make this idea work, I treated them as two different colors in the color palette. If this is not allowed, please let me know

Went for a subtle pink for the base and purple accents here, I think it looks pretty nice. It is also at this point that I noticed i didn't change the outline for the neck diamonds on the backsprite. :tyke:

Edit: Fixed some coloring issues and also made the diamonds more towards pink than purple.

CAP31-Back - Banana.png

Went for sort of a banana theme with the yellow, brown and green.

CAP31-Back - Toothpaste.png

This one I call toothpaste, went cooler and almost minty

CAP31-Back - Ice Cream.png

Was aiming for ice cream with cherries on top! Probably my least favorite of the three but would love some feedback on which would be best to final sub.
Final Submission

This shiny Saharaja is acclimated to fluorite caves, so much so, that it shines like one of them. In his body it has large amounts of fluorine and calcium (CaF2= Fluorite Formula); Even under the right conditions, it can produce hydrofluoric acid.
Its gems, contrary to what might be supposed, are alexandrites (BeAl2O4), but in this case, as a consequence of a change in the chemical composition of the alexandrite due to fluorination, they have acquired a pink color.

PS: I'm a Spanish speaker and I use the translator in a large part of my messages here, so if there are spelling errors or incohesion of meaning, I apologize.
