Oh wow. He's gorgeous. The yellow above the green is more yellow than I was expecting. I've been contemplating a medium/3 Terra in Feathered Serpent, so it's nice to what it looks like on other toys.

They couldn't do the full three color fade of feathered serpent so they did a 2 color fade on the flower and used the green for the leaves.

The yellow is usually blended to oblivion on the real 3 color fades

I think this variation looks great on Hanns :widesmile:

I took a closer look at it on Pretzal and I see now what you mean. Makes sense that the yellow stands out then. I wonder if they'd attempt the full proper fade on Terra or if they'd have to do a split fade like they did for yours.

I definitely will if I ask. I'm not too sure what I want on my Terra. I'm seriously considering taking the base color(s) of Permafrost and marbling them with the purple that's the Natural option for the egg plugs. Can't decide if I want that a regular marble or a pride streak; both would look good I think.

XL wide split Clayton in Hive Mind (Ridley's signature).
My phone's camera is a bit crappy and don't show well the dark purple highlight, very noticeable IRL. I like this model in earthy colors (actually fits good any coloration IMO) and with highlights, and when I saw Ridley's signature I decided (I was thinking in Trent's signature too... maybe for my next Clayton xD). His soft shaft sometimes is too soft for my taste, but still loving him.

A lot of the new models can't have highlights for whatever reason. Pearce couldn't, even though I could get Opal which has a highlight :eyeroll:

Maybe you could get the shaft from firebird? That's still really pretty.

Possibly XD I kind of fell in love with the concept of a lava/magma tentacle. So I am going to assume the shaft on the coloration "Golden hoard" has a highlight as well lol.

The only options I have is solid, marble, and fade for Ika which doesnt leave a lot of working room :(

Yeah, Golden Hoard has a highlight. Firebird is a gold to red fade, so it'd be possible where other pours like Magma Drake and Golden Hoard aren't. As marbles go, there's Fire from the Extra Effective promo, though I'd also think about designing something myself in your position. I'd personally go for a marble including a black tone, in the hope they'd do a very tight effect that actually looks like lava, but unfortunately you can't request a specific marble style other than Pride Streak. A plain onyx black with, I dunno, a glowing orange like on the Emissary Bright Blade and Halloween Orange, or back to the Extra Effective red-orange.

I hope you can find a colour that does work for you and is possible on Ika.

You could request the fade from Golden Hoard and have them leave off the base color and the highlight.
I also have a Firebird toy and it's a really nice fade should you choose to go that route.

I could most def do that which made me remember something. There's a fire fade that the dragoness has a color option. It looks like it uses a highlight but its pretty close to what'd want and im sure it'd help give them some kind of direction too lol.

I wonder if I told them to look at Clayton's magma drake coloring on the shaft part and go forth and see what they want to be inventive on :P because its kind of hard to pin point exactly using all the options on site. Sometimes the option is give them a ref let them go for it XD but thats just me being a noob to the whole custom coloring thing. The most I've done thats special is a opal meng lol.

The yellow shade and highlight color used in Golden Hoard, Magma Drake, and Janine's Fire are all the same I believe. So if you like that yellow that's the way to go for sure. You could find out if they would do Fire or Magma Drake as a fade rather than a highlight as well. The yellow faded into the orange-red color used for the highlight.

Thank you for the suggestions :D It led me to a bit of headway (a different CS person as well) So a magma Tentacle is in the works of being born from a volcano :P They are helping me figure out exactly what colors we need to put into the "fade" to truly make it look like its on fire.

So tip of the day :P if one CS doesnt work try again.

It'd going to be something similar to a yellow orange into a fiery red fade. The exact color are still being worked out for the best impact :P. Im going to ask them to leave a note with it to see if they can truly make it look like it came from pure magma so the pour staff can have a little bit of fun.

Posted pics of my new mini Pearce in the 'show me your Pearce' thread. He was a rogue adoption, but looks like it could maybe be werewolf muzzles new signature?

Just got a gorgeous medium Fenrir in the mail today! He's swapped with Xar's signature, Lightning Bug.
I think I like to look at him more than actually playing with him! :excited:
