I'm actually interested in this group. I've tried over a dozen 'adopt groups', even a specialized one that has higher quality work from artists and have had ZERO luck in selling adopts unless it was free-ninety-free. I'd really like to start gaining points more than 10 every few months. Its ridiculous.

I've asked various people about how I could improve my chances of adopts getting bought, and so far all I've gotten is 'brighter colors' and 'post them in as many groups as possible.' I'm not sure if that's the answer or not.

Anyone have Suggestions? I do have group specific adopts, but plenty more that can be used outside my group world.

When it comes to adopts, it takes more than the fact of it being an OS or different species to get interest. It helps to still have some design to it other than just one color or taking a pattern from a real animal. It helps to not be afraid and let the idea and markings soar. ^^ Folks like simple, not too hard to re-create but still enough to have some original flare to it (more than just tail and paw tips) and then others like more complex.

But affiliating with groups can also help. ^^ My own OS group is well.. not lively but that is only my fault. There isn't much there to make folks want to join and since they can still see new ones from other adopt groups I submit too, there isn't much perk. Not yet of course. ;) It takes patience and putting in some effort. ^^

Not sure if my tips help or not but I hope so. xD

Hmm... I usually do have a pattern on the creatures, and some are complex, but I feel I tend to make simplistic patterns, both fictional and from real animals.

Then maybe try to do a bit more as to not be so simple "safe" and see where that leads you? Also color palettes can make ALL the difference. In my experience, pink is the plague. >.>
