Chibi Urubu!

What an angelic little chibi urubu. Don't you just want to pick it up and give it a little squeeze? If you were to adopt one, it would be as good as gold for sure!

OH! And @Cyroris you are very talented! Those are adorable..! That was very kind of you to share! I am obsessed with the color pink in general, and I love classic pink piggies (fave animal) So naturally I am happy about this color and honestly feel I lucked out with it being pink by default, I totally expected it to be brown and more boar like too. I understand and respect everyones view regardless, but personally, WOOHOOO!..

*groans at your pun* "piggybacking" Did you MEAN to do that? Because now you got me started punning.

Honestly, I'm getting boar-d of the debate. Jasper isn't trying to hog attention, merely provide feedback, and it's pretty hog-wash to argue over semantics over how directly or indirectly she states something. Some people are more direct than others; not out of maliciousness but just in how they communicate. Swine-ing about how people phrase things about the pig-ment of the chibi is just wallowing in a debate that wasn't intended to get started.

I ask everyone to please don't squeal so much about someone's semantics, even if they may be stated a little more baldly that you prefer. Put some oink-ment on your feelings, pork-favor.

(Oy. I hope that got it out of my system. XD )

All joking aside, I understand that it may seem rude in how Jasper phrased things, but from what I can tell, it was never meant to be taken as seriously and as personally as some people seem to be taking it. Some people just communicate more directly than others, with no maliciousness or intent to sound like a demanding child.

@Jasper

They ARE chibis, though. And it's fine to have colour preferences lol. Nobody said you can't. You didn't say it was a colour preference until now, however. You said wild boars don't come in pink which is completely irrelevant because this is a virtual pet site and urubus aren't wild boars, just inspired by them. They already come in every colour of the rainbow, including pink (dawn).

You're honestly responsible for the response you got because your complaints didn't even make sense and you were immediately aggressive and rude to someone who pointed out that you were going into a LOT of detail in your complaint about a chibi urubu not having the colouring or looking enough like a wild boar which, again, is irrelevant because urubus are not wild boars.

@Jasper
I wasn't trying to be patronizing.
I was not invalidating an opinion, anywhere. If you can't tell the difference between stating an opinion and stating a fact, you need to do some research. Stating opinions as facts can often lead to misinformation being spread, as many people take them, believe them, and spread them themselves. If someone told another person "this is how this is" when it's actually an opinion, that person is still going to take it as fact and spread it as such.
You weren't being constructive. You were falsely stating opinions as fact, to which I corrected thinking it was just misinformation.

Constructive criticism can be wonderful. Opinions are great, and everyone has them. But knowing how to utilize either one of them is very important. Insulting something or stating a false fact and pretending it's constructive criticism or simply an opinion is going to do absolutely nobody any favors.

Jasper

@Beast I'm sorry if my comment upset/put you down you at all. I was rather touched by your earlier comment; thank you for the validation about the coloration. However, people too often use "overlays" as a means of shutting down criticism; "you can overlay it, who cares?" and sure, it's an option but I don't see how that's supposed to stop me from sharing my opinion new releases? Okay, I can cover it; it still has faults tho.

I understand they can't make changes that'll please everyone and especially not me. I'm clearly in the minority on this one, and that's fine. Only time staff listened and changed anything on my behalf was when I made a meme depicting how faded one of the default hairstyles was, (back before we could customize all of that,) and they darkened it for me. I even think they used my edit to do it. I was touched but never expected them to do anything about it in the first place and I still don't.

Quote by @Muerte:
So, I am sorry you cannot control the art department, but you have free control over your pets and getting an overlay to fit your own personal tastes.
How is that line not patronizing? C'mon, admit to this being questionable at the very least.

Quote:
Stating "the color is wrong and should be this" is not an opinion, it's a fact. "I'd have preferred this in this color" is an opinion, gets the point across, and can actually lead to people taking it into consideration in the future.
I disagree on what you consider a valid opinion and don't see the difference between the two statements. I'm sure people would've taken issue even if I had said it like that; tends to happen when you go against the grain like I so often do but I'll take it under advisement all the same.

Quote:

Not so much upset as I was confused. You know how dumbfounded you seemed to be over the whole pink thing?
Quote:
-Why can't it be pink, that's... Moving on.
Well, how you felt about that is how I felt about this release. All I could think of is, "why?" Why this color; why is it's head that of an adults; where are the chibi features; why is it so round? I was openly trying to rationalize it, be as constructive as possible and now it's turned into this whole big thing that I am tired of taking part in. Can we all just disregard my opinion and put this to bed?

Autobot

I think the pink is very cute and is obviously meant to evoke baby piglets. I don't remember, was anyone fussy when the chibi archan was released because it had a mane? I know people weren't happy about the Torrey's coloring either because they incorrectly thought it was the only pet that wasn't like the common color, but more pastel.

Here's all the chibi pets that aren't the common color, btw.



I'm still not the biggest fan of the torrey but I love the mallarchy, which is doing the same thing this one is - changed to a color to evoke a baby one. (many many ducks species do not have yellow babies, but man are they still cute!)

And I for one love our new baby pink piggie even if the pet isn't one I'd get! That lil mohawk is so cuuuuute.

Muerte

@Jasper
I'm not trying to patronize you, simply explaining some misunderstandings. One of them mainly being opinion vs fact.
Your wording is very matter of fact, which does not translate into "this is my opinion" no matter how you slice it. Constructive criticism is great, helpful, and can improve things down the line.
Stating "the color is wrong and should be this" is not an opinion, it's a fact. "I'd have preferred this in this color" is an opinion, gets the point across, and can actually lead to people taking it into consideration in the future. But for what it's worth, no one is blaming you for not knowing chibis aren't just in the common color, or that they aren't babies, or that you have preferences in general. I simply broke down misinformation due to your wording all being stated as facts and you seemingly being upset that these facts were not adhered to.

As for the overlay... There is nothing artistically wrong with this pet. All of your opinions on it can be done with an overlay. Since pets cannot come in every pose and color imagined up by staff, we are able to come up with our own to fit our own needs.
14

Beast

@Jasper , the only kinda issues with that and not opting for a overlay to change the color is that you can't please everyone, even if some of the chibis reflect a smaller version of the common as others don't... you can only fix so much of whatever the issue based on feedback there is. People will want it as it, people will want it black, people will want it brown and to have this verses that on it and the only save for that is to have multiple options for the same things to provide and that itself it too much and unrealistic. There will never be a pet released, color release, or revamp that the subeta population as whole will 100% agree on. So overlay is the solve. To each their own when it comes to overlay and that's the solve offered for anything. -shrugs-

@Muerte Could you not patronize me, please? Of course I don't opt to control the staff. I give my opinions (for better or worse) and am usually ignored. I have accepted that this is how things will be. Doesn't mean I should just sit there and say nothing.

Criticizing and questioning does not equal a control complex, nor is it something I should be crucified for, no matter how bluntly or plainly I state it.

As for speaking factually: I'm sorry for not including multitudes of "to me" modifiers. I would've thought those to have been obvious but apparently not. I will concede that I shouldn't have assumed the rules when it came to making these chibis but, can you blame me for thinking that's how it was? Most of the pets take after the basic versions of themselves.

Lastly, this overlay fallacy: Just because they're an option, doesn't mean people should just be quiet about pet revamps/introductions. The art can't improve so long as everyone just nods along with everything.

Huh, I looked at the base color of it and noticed it looks like a lighter version the dawn coloring XD I think this is the first time I've seen a chibi that does not have the same coloring as the common color. Odd but hey still cute (just not my type of pet right now :P )

CMYK

If you don’t like the new pet color, then don’t get it. Constructive criticism is one thing like a glaringly obvious problem in anatomy, getting pissed off over the fact that it’s pink is another. That’s not constructive criticism, that’s your own preference.

@Jasper I'm going to make my urubu this and just overlay it with brown or something, tbh. which is the wonder of overlays at least since I sometimes find new releases of colors/species to be perfect in looks but my idea of color preference for it is different. I'm not the greatest with photoshop but I make what color changes I want or get someone else to do it and call it a day. I need this chibs for my zodiac collection, it's made up my mind that I want my Chinese zodiacs to be chibi :joy: but pink wouldn't suit, brown or gold depending which way I go with my zodiacs. or Jade... I can't make up my mind :sob:

@Jasper
All of that is preference. As I said, you may dislike things to your hearts desire. But stating personal desire as a fact just doesn't work, and people pointing that out isn't an attack on you.
I, personally, think sweetheart should be the default coloration for every chibi and the experiments to be done in that color scheme, but that's me, not a fact, and I understand that I'm not the one in control.
So, I am sorry you cannot control the art department, but you have free control over your pets and getting an overlay to fit your own personal tastes.
22

Jasper

I do read people's replies @Julian. I just opted to not bother replying to anyone since sharing my initial opinion resulted in, well, this. Why add fuel to that fire? It's not something I really want to fight about but since a lot of you are confused, I'll go ahead and post a follow up:

@Muerte
-Could've fooled me, evidence below.
-You got me on that one
-I'm aware of that. These have never come off as chibi though. They come off more like actual babies.
-Yeah but not that fat. This piggy looks ready for fair.
-I just think this would be cuter if it was brown, like the basic or like the baby boar I pictured.
-I know that but they're not so far removed from their parents that they look to be a different species. This one looks like the baby of the dawn urubu, (which isn't an issue anymore.)
-I know but black wouldn't have looked as cute so I didn't mention it

Evidence
I've got to admit, I'm a bit peeved that people are making it out to be just me because they can't understand why I didn't like this being pink (sorry for having a preference) but apparently, it's a common enough mistake that it needs to be corrected often:
Quote by Muerte @ 08/5/19 3:01 pm:

If it's that much of a problem, why not either concede and rename them as baby pets or draw these things as proper chibis that aren't infantilized so much?

@innamoramento
I was just explaining chibi/Subeta's intent a bit. Chibi can be misinterpreted easily no matter what though.
I did note that Subeta's chibi style isn't as extreme, but it must have been accidentally highlighted and eaten up in a sentence revision, OOP. Oh well.

But yeah, Subeta's style isn't strict to traditional chibi, and a few are also done as a fun joke. For instance, both the chibi and graveyard Mallarchy don't follow the "norm" and are done as fun variations.

And while Subeta's intention is to be super cutesy and chibi, but a user sees it and goes "this is perfect for my baby pet" like, that's perfectly fine.

@Ossuary i find the upper curve, maybe a bit high.. or maybe it's too obvious, and it would have looked better as a dark shade of pink instead, i guess?.. meh, it's not like it matters a lot if the line is correct or not, and i appreciate you took the time to explain it to me. The eyes look fine to me, so that's not what i find off....

@Muerte if chibi is meant to be distorted, that's fine by me ;p just that all the other chibi pets look like baby versions of the pets. And i also thought many other users thought the same. it doesn't make much of a difference to me either way.
I have nothing against the color choice, just to be clear - this chibi urubu makes me think of a baby pig/piglet (not boar), and i've seen many pink piglets. therefore, i think the chosen color is perfect ;p (i also want to say that i was/am not siding with Jasper or anyone else, i was voicing my opinion.)

@innamoramento the snout is the right shape, i think! the foreshortening and/or angle just makes it look a little funny, but the snout is meant to follow the shape of the nose (so, like a rounded wedge). maybe it's the line under its left eye throwing you off?

EmCee

In case anyone needs clarification:
Chibi (ちび or チビ) is a Japanese slang word describing something short (a thing, an animal or a person). ... This style of artwork, also known as super deformed (shorthanded as SD), has since found its way into anime and manga fandom through its usage in manga works.

Ideally, the ratio between the body and the head should be 1:1 or 1:4, the head being the bigger part, and the legs being distinctively short.

The "chibi art style" is a style of drawing a character as small, with distorted proportions. Not a kid/baby version. Staff have noted more than once that the color isn't meant as the baby version.
I mean, all manga and anime styles have larger heads but chibi is more distinct.

If someone whose art style is more manga-inspired can explain this better, please do.

@Jasper: that baby boar you showed is soooooo cute!!!!

@Muerte: i was under the impression that on subeta, the chibi pets are like baby/"youngling" versions of the "regular" ones. In a way like Sailor Chibi Moon is a kid version of Sailor Moon.... (and if i'm not mistaken, "chibi" even means "little" in Japanese, with the interpretation of small or young/kid, and that in manga/anime, kids are sometimes shown with much larger heads than teens or adults.)

You may dislike anything you desire, but you've got some things mixed up there.
-Chibi isn't baby, so it's not a baby boar
-Chibi isn't always the same color as the common
-Chibi is noted as having a larger head, it's a mark of chibi
-Boars are fat, like, they have pot bellies even when squeakers.
-Why can't it be pink, that's... Moving on.
-Not all boars are the same color, and not all are born brown

Sorry but, how is this cute? Baby boars are usually adorable but this one's too fat and seems to have an adults head already. Also, why is it pink; so we can cheat and have a pig pet without making a new species? A bit disappointing since the basic version is brown and not only are the chibi's supposed to be miniature versions of the basic pet, but baby boars are brown like their parents IRL. All these changes kind of take away from how cute it could've been. Apologies to the artist, I wish I could like this one.
