Design policy and rules
I am, as the artist, the copyright holder of all art I create. But in reality, that means very little- it means I can file copyright claims on reposted facebook wolf group art and on pinterest, etc. So, not much, and very boring. Despite its relative uselessness, I do not give away or sell copyrights of any art of mine, except in very rare circumstances, usually commercial related (ex: a novel, a videogame).
You own a design of mine when:
You bought the design yourself or paid someone else for it in its full advertised price
You were formally gifted the design with the included statement below and approved by myself
You received the design in a trade
You do not own a design of mine when:
You did not buy the design or pay for it fully
You did not receive the design as a gift with a formal statement with my approval
You did not receive the design honestly
You use the design for a long time despite never paying for it or officially owning it
What youcan do with your design or adopt:
Re-sell it at an equal or lesser value than the original. You may sell the character and its art together for more than the total cost of the design, of course.
Commission art of the character or receive art in general of the character
Write about them or include them in your story/stories
Roleplay with them abiding to my guidelines below
Breed them to another character of yours or someone elses
Gift them to a friend. Gifting a design gives up all of your rights to the design and transfers them to the new owner. Read below.
Edit minor features like their eye color, scars, or markings that you've come to dislike.
What you can'tdo with your design or adopt:
Use the design to make money in any form without first asking me
Use the design to purposefully make others unhappy or use it to irritate, mock, or invite bad behavior
Flip the design and sell for profit
Informally give your friend or someone else a design, then get mad when they do something you don't like with the design. You gave the design away- you have no say in what happens to it from there on out.
Roleplay or use your character, which uses my design, in certain fetishes. Read below for more details if you think this may apply to you.
Turn them into twins, triplets, or make any copies of any kind to share with friends or other users.
I do not allow twins or copies of designs to be made anymore. There have been an alarming amount of problems to come from these situations and a lot of clients turning on each other over them. Twinning designs is not permitted, nor is anything similar. I discourage owners from sharing designs.
In a similar note to twinning, I also do not encourage co-ownership of my designs. It yields the same problems and risks. There should only be one owner at a time of a design.
DO NOT use my designs or art in anything related to:
anthro x feral in general
NO EXCEPTIONS. If you are going to use a character for these things, DO NOT buy from me. If you are found using designs youve bought from me in these subjects, you will be blocked and blacklisted.
You may assign your character a dark backstory, including a history of rape if it's really necessary, but please do not use any of my designs or art in active or ongoing rape plots.
If you'd like to gift your design to someone else, please be aware that I will not be allowed to protect either of you if there are any issues. By gifting the design to someone else, you're completely giving up any rights to that design. Previously, I'd try to get involved and sort ownership out between the parties, but really I'd rather not get involved. If you gift the design away, you have no say over it and what happens to it.
You may sell a gifted or free design that you received only up to what it was purchased for originally. So if the design was originally sold for $90, then you can only sell the design alone for that much or less.
