Want to make on of your own? Simply follow the guidelines on the species sheet below! Just remember that this is an UPGRADE species, meaning they start out as blank slates without upgrades, and grow as you use them.
Ectocat Species Sheet (Open Evolving Species) by Jifi-Dawg
If you're confused about making an Ectocat, take a look at this info sheet for some helpful tips!
Once you've made your Ectocat, double check its traits, then submit it to the "Approved Ectocats" folder in the gallery!

Only approved Ectocats can evolve and participate in events, so any art done before your Ectocat gets accepted will not count towards upgrades!

Once your Ectocat has been accepted, you can begin evolving it with the upgrades listed in the journal below!
Evolution (WIP)Ectocats have the ability to evolve and grow by absorbing spirits, but they can't do it on their own. So how can you help your Ectocat? Well, for starters, spending time with your Ectocat and drawing it is the most common way for these cuties to gain ghosts and evolve. However, just a quick headshot or sketch won't do.
For Ectocats, art count is called "Ghost Count", since one art will earn your Ectocat one ghost.
For your art to count toward upgrades, it must be one of these:
:bulletgreen: A fully colored fullbody drawing/painting/pixel (with or without shading/background)
:bulletgreen: A fullbody animation
:bulletgreen: A figurine/plush/model (can be as simple as a fullbody tinfoil figure, or as extravagant as a detailed clay sculpture, ect. Must be colored/painted, though)
Art that won't count:
:bulletblack: A quick sketch or just lineart
:bulletblack: A headshot
:bulletblack: A WIP of a project (must be completed to count)
:bulletblack: Several pictures of the

Lore
The Origin of Ectocats
Long ago in a world known as Loonia, six similar and yet very different races were in a constant struggle to decide who was superior over the others. These races are now known as The Ancient Evoloons. The Terraloons, who were master diggers, felt that they were the best because there was nowhere on dry land they couldn't go. The Aquaticloons, who were master swimmers, felt that they were the best because they could explore and tame all the oceans and seas. The Avianloons, who were master flyers, felt that their ability to oversee the land and sea from above made them the best. The Celestiloons, who could balance anything with their six arms, felt that they could rule the best by multitasking. The Monsterloons, who were the most fearsome of them all, felt that the

Skull Mini Pixel by GasaraWhat are Ectocats? Skull Mini Pixel by Gasara
Ectocats are creatures who evolve with love, time, and plenty of ghosts!

How does it work?
Ectocats have a special ability that allows them to absorb the spirits of deceased animals, and then use these spirits to grow ectoplasm shapes around the bones growing out of their bodies. However, to fully grow these parts they need plenty of spirits, and need to be nurtured and cared for by a capable owner! Only happy, healthy Ectocats will evolve!

How can I get one?
Simple! First, make sure you join the group, Ectocats-Central, so once you're done you can submit your Ectocat to the appropriate folder for approval. Next, follow the species guidlines and design your every own Ectocat! Make sure to double check everything before submitting. Don't forget that every Ectocat is born without any ectoplasm or upgrades! If anything isn't quite right, you'll be notified so you can fix it. Do not repeatedly re-submit your design! Once everything is right, simply reply to our submission comment and we'll go from there! :3

How many can I have?
As many as you want! Just remember that each Ectocat you make evolves separately.

Ghost Divider Graves by Annanxo Ghost Divider Graves by Annanxo

How big are they?
They start out the size of a house cat, but once they start evolving they can get as big as you want!

Ghost Divider Graves by Annanxo Ghost Divider Graves by Annanxo

Can I use bases or have someone else draw my Ectocat for me?
No! Each Ectocat must be designed and submitted by their owner! If you use bases your submission will be automatically denied. Likewise, only art you yourself draw of your Ectocat will count toward its upgrades. You can make gifts, which is encouraged, but this won't count for the recipient's upgrades.

Ghost Divider Graves by Annanxo Ghost Divider Graves by Annanxo

If I don't want my Ectocat anymore, can I give it away or sell it?
You can GIFT your Ectocat to someone else, but any upgrades will be lost and the Ectocat will no longer be able to evolve. Remember, only happy Ectocats can evolve! You cannot sell your Ectocat, though!

Sorry if this question is silly, but can you draw your Ectocat with other species (besides Evoloons)?
