Hi! I'm sugar-hype99, but I also go by hapeemonkey, FalinnV, Ghost Hand, and
ZombeeMonkey. You can call me any of those names or whatever nickname you come up
with. :3 Generally I go by Sugar though.

I promise not to bite too much! I try to be nice and tolerant.

A bit about me: I am 19, bi, and living on the East Coast.

I am an avid fangirl and shipper. It's really bad. ;3; My top three fandoms are Hetalia,
Homestuck, and Attack on Titan (although Assassin's Creed, DRAMAtical Murder, Creepypastas,
and many others are up there). I'm also really into yaoi, demons, wolves, gore, rping... Really
a lot of stuff!

You can find me on tumblr, fanfiction.net, AO3, YouTube, livestream, noteflight, and various
other nerdy places under one or more of the usernames I listed above.

Journal Entry: Wed Feb 25, 2015, 5:12 PM
I've had my tablet for seven years now. It's seen a lot of use. Heck, the drawing part has clearly worn out lines from scrolling and goodness knows the middle of it is scratched up from all that drawing. Last year I had to switch out chords because my first one was shot. My pen busted into pieces and I had to get a new one. And now my backup chord suddenly doesn't work. I don't think it's the chord itself because, as I said, my first one lasted roughly six years before giving out. I'm careful not to bend it around the ends. I usually take it out completely every night, and every time I travel with it. I think it's the port in the tablet itself since it only works if the connector bit is pushed well in and somehow held in place.

I think it's getting time to retire this tablet. That being said, I need to save up for a new one. I have no income, money's tight, and I'm already asking people to help pay for college, a binder, etc. I've opened up a donation widget on my page with the goal of the cheapest replacement I could find; it's the exact same kind I have right now and is currently ~$150 (yes it that will cover tax and shipping). So although I hate asking, if you could spare any amount I would be incredibly grateful

For certain amounts I can give you art. Mind you I don't want to be bending my chord and potentially messing that up, too, so these will all be traditional:

100:points: - small sketch or headshot

200-400:points: - chibi + small sketch or headshot

500-700:points: - upper body humanoid or full body other

800-900:points: - detailed bust, or upper body humanoid/full body other

1000:points:+ - detailed full body, multiple characters or background

(fair warning backgrounds aren't my thing, so they'll be super simple)

I don't really expect it'll be getting quite that high, but any help would be huge. Application time for colleges is still keeping me a bit busy, and classes will be picking back up, so forgive me for having the tiers set a bit far apart in order for me to at least attempt to keep up with drawing.

Any help is appreciated. Thank you.

What is Deweykalt?
Deweykalt (doo-ee-kahlt) is the name of a planet filled with life. Very few places are dry; the world is 70% ocean, and many rivers and underground springs dot the landscape. Coastal areas have beautiful beaches and tropics, which give way to thicker rainforest farther inland. Mountain ranges are a common sight and have a network of tunnels, both naturally formed and made by cave-dwelling creatures. There is an abundance of oxygen thanks to the thriving plant life, and as such the creatures that live on Deweykalt can grow to large proportions.
[Map]

What sort of things live on Deweykalt?
There are a wide variety of flora all over the world. They are usually very colorful and accented with black- the colors are used to attract certain pollinating species, and the black to absorb as much sunlight as possible. In the rainforests this is most evident; smaller plants near the ground will be mostly black with little to no color (since the sunlight is blocked out by the upper levels), while taller plants at the top will be mostly color.

The exception to this rule of thumb is the Vea-io, which are an intelligent mobile species of plant. They are, in fact, the most intelligent lifeforms on Deweykalt.

The second most intelligent are the Greevlins, which are subterranean scavengers who do not always get along with the Vea. Many other species see them as pests although they are responsible for the majority of tunnels.

The Oblaken are twenty-foot-tall six-legged creatures who are used as mounts by Vea, and are amongst the largest animals on Deweykalt. The are herbivores and herd animals capable of uprooting several trees at once.

Lastly there are the Pliecilus, dull colored cave-dwelling animals that do not venture from the mountains. As a result they are completely blind, however due to their other highly specialized senses are top predators.

There are other creatures abound, but currently these are the four main species of the group.

:new:What's up with the glowing parts?
You may have noticed Oblaken and Vea-Io have bio-luminescence. The Oblaken produce bacteria in specialized pores on their skin which glows in the dark. This trait was developed so a herd would be able to spot each other at night, even with their poor eyesight. The Vea, who are co-dependent on the Oblaken, evolved bio-luminescence for the same reason- so their Oblaken partners would see them at night as well. Each individual has a unique pattern of luminescent patches and spots, although Vea always have bio-luminescent "ribs" and feet.

What about critters that live in the seas/oceans?
They have not been developed, since the main focus are the four species, which are all land-dwellers. But rest assured, there are things that live in the water.

How do the species get along?
More or less they leave each other alone in order to avoid conflict. The Greevlin and Vea-io do not get along well thanks to the Greevlin having a tendency to burrow under their settlements and eat food meant for the Oblaken. When they're particularly desperate for food they may even eat the young of Vea or Oblaken, although this isn't often since they are scavengers at heart. Pliecilus are respected as masters of the caves and any animal that ventures inside is considered free game. Greevlin are one of the trickier meals, but Vea and Oblaken have no problem with them since they tend to stay outside. Oblaken that are tamed are very gentle and kind towards Vea, but wild Oblaken (thanks to their size) ignore other species unless provoked or spooked, with the exception of hatchlings.

Are the creatures restricted to Deweykalt?
Sort of. None of the species have developed the technology for space travel; at most the Vea-io have tools for making settlements and gathering materials. The sole purpose of buildings is to store things and for protection from harsh weather. However, that doesn't mean they can't leave. Other aliens may have visited, and sometimes the creatures will leave with them. Due to the climate however, generally any being that left Deweykalt will be really picky about their environment and will require humid air and warm temperatures to be comfortable, especially the Vea who will also need a lot of sunlight and moisture. Vea who get less sunlight will become darker and may even have black spots grow on them in order to compensate.

So there's no civilization or technology?
The Vea are the only ones so far that use technology of some sort. They build structures depending on where they live: mountainous Vea carve buildings into the rock, rainforest Vea may use large dead trees or grow their own using branches and fast-growing plants (pictures to come), and tropical Vea simply use whatever is available. They do not take from living things in order to make their shelters (such as stripping bark from a tree or cutting it down). Vea have the intelligence to develop "modern" technology, but choose not to in order to preserve nature. This only goes for the species as a whole; individuals may differ.

What about languages?
Under development. The group icon has a bit of it, and to make things easier the alphabet will be fairly similar to English. There is a common language, known as Kaltish, which is spoken by any Vea, Greevlin, or Pliecilus who choose to learn it. Kaltish is heavily influenced by Vea, although Greevlins were the first to give it sound. Each species has their own unique language as well, although how much it is used depends on the community and individual. Oblaken cannot learn Kaltish as they do not have the intelligence, and even their own language is a combination of noises, gestures, and lights that other species might have some understanding of but may not "speak" themselves. Vea communicate with their Oblaken at first using pictures, and later on through training the Oblaken may recognize gestures and a few words.

You are by no means restricted to these languages, it's just a fun thing to add a touch of detail.

Can I have {insert species here}?
Depends on the species.
    Pliecilus are open, I only request that you read the species information before making one. A base is available as well, just note me if you wish to use it.
    Greevlin are not currently available, as I do not have a species sheet made up for them.
    Vea-io are closed, but you can check here for adoption rounds. Be sure to read their info before trying out.
    Oblaken are semi-closed for now. Vea-io owners may make their own. Adoptables might be made soon, and those I give permission to may make one.
Deweykalt World and FAQ
Please keep in mind this is still new and subject to change. Any questions just comment below and I'll get back to you~
:bulletgreen:Currently the Pliecilus, Oblaken, and Vea-Io have bases available for ref sheets in both PSD and SAI formats. You may request the base be sent to you to use as a temporary reference sheet or to help you design your character, however you must own a character of that species before asking for it. Do not use the base to make adoptables under any circumstances.:bulletgreen:

Chiv probably lives in the least clean-colored water yet, but the one that's clearest in terms of trash and debris. His tail is based on an orca because he really reminds me of one. <3

And with that, this is the last of the MerTTs for a while. Click here if you'd like to know why. I do hope to try some traditionally and offer them that way, however I must practice first. Alas, there is a good chance the traditional stuff won't be coloured, though, as I am not good with that kind of thing. :/

This is just for fun. MTTs are not mermaids.

Gentle pushes~ UwU
I should probably start mentioning the animals I get tails from. Eva (left) got a swordfish due to their sickle-shaped tails reminding me of his arm and neck markings, plus all their fins are pointy but delicate looking, which I sort of got from Eva. Gabriel (right) is a reef shark, more specifically an Atlantic sharpnose shark, also due to his markings and idk, they just look like each other. o3o Both species live in the Atlantic, so that works out.

This is just for fun. MTTs are not mermaids.
