    The world is full of beautiful, vibrant creatures, but what looks good in nature doesn't always translate well into a video game. The way light bounces and transfers color, and the microscopic scale of skin/scale/feather/hair color and texture are currently not able to be replicated in a video game, to my knowledge, making brightly colored dinos using a 512x/1024x/2048x skin texture look fake.

    And neutral is beautiful, if you pay attention to the subtlety. ;)

    Oh joy another person missing the point of this thread if you want to post dull animals or plants or whatever make your own thread. I made this thread to show the side of nature that people tend to want to ignore.

    Natural is not a reasons for limiting color palettes. Or even subduing patterns some patterns are very intricate but they always make sense somehow with how the animal is no matter how out there it may seem

    Nope.

    Sort of torn between cooing at its cute little back design or freaking out cuz it kinda looks like a type of jumping spider.

    Just going to point out that most ground dwelling birds with bright plumages are either endangered, extinct or lack natural predators.

    Sooooo, it's all about biology and environment the way I see it. ._.
    Does the animal rely on sneaking up on prey? Is it too big to escape predators by hiding under a rock or up in a tree? Can it fly? What color is the terrain? How fast does it move? Does it nest/give birth on the ground or in an elevated area?

    Colors dont have to be dull or boring, but they should at least make a grain of sense.

    Nothing I posted was dull. ;)

    But the skill of an artist/limitations of video games are.

    What one considers "colorful" is subjective. I think the colors on these two animals are stunning.

    And in that same article:

    "Range

    Red foxes, including the silver form, are one of the most widely distributed carnivorous species in the world, ranging over much of the northern hemisphere and Australia. Their abundance in a wide variety of habitats can be attributed to introduction by humans into new habitats for fox-hunting.

    In North America, silver foxes occur mostly in northwestern part of the continent. In the 19th century, silver foxes were sometimes collected from Labrador, the Magdalen Islands, and they were rarely taken from the mountainous regions of Pennsylvania and the wilder portions of New York. They were occasionally found in Nova Scotia. According to Sir John Richardson, it was uncommon for trappers to collect more than 4-5 silver foxes in any one season, in areas where silver foxes were present, despite the trappers tendency to prioritize them above all other fur-bearers once they were discovered.[1] Silver foxes comprise up to 8% of Canada's red fox population.[6]

    In the former Soviet Union, silver foxes occur mostly in forest zones and forest-tundra belts, particularly in middle and eastern Siberia and the Caucasus mountains. They are very rare in steppes and deserts.[5]"
