what

i mean, this is a pretty nice design (even though I think that foxfans as a closed species is unoriginal)

but who would to spend 1600 dollars on a bunch of pixels, when that could go to much more important things

I don't blame you for it, but still

Well, as we have said to many people, we're sure the buyer wanted to support us, I see buying others art as a way to support the artist, I've done this before with many artists, I feel lucky for having the support I needed and while you consider foxfans as unnoriginal it was an idea that took us about 5 years to developed, I know is easy to copy once is done, but we didn't have shortcuts to get to the idea, we like to respect others, and we know to value of a simple and complex ideas as well, the important for us is the heart you put on them

I know this is kinda old, but the last like two pages of comments are all on the price... Belliko never forced anyone to pay that much, people bid that much because they want it. Besides, what was she supposed to do? Stop the bidding? Or give the money back? That would be unfair to everyone involved. There's no need to be bitter and rude because your art/designs don't get that much attention, or get paid that much. If you want to make your designs popular, just keep working. If you want more money for your art, then raise your prices, or ask people how much they think your commissions are worth. She didn't start out with this much attention, and her foxfans didn't sell for this price from the start too. If you're too impatient to wait for your art to become more popular, then find something else to complain about instead of being rude to Belliko and the owner.

Sorry for the rant, just needed to get this off my chest. Sweating a little... It's a lovely design, and it deserved every penny it got, and do you Heart

That is totally true, I've been drawing since I was 12... and I know my art is not the best neither the worst, and I know everyone can be better, I do believe that everyone can do what they love and get paid for it, sometimes is not easy, and we're very lucky, we have been told that, and we know it, of course, we would love to do all this for free! it's what we love, but we can't, we don't consider ourselves greedy (maybe we are and we don't know it), but our motivation is not just money but the love of what we do, money can help us to achieve our goals or to help to our situation as well and since we're as many of you people who need to gain money for living, we need to sell our work, if we weren't pay for foxfans, we would never be able to do them, thank you for understanding and for leaving this comment :heart: :hug:

Hmm it's sad to think people doesn't deserve recognition or they're not able to make their dreams true!, we're not rich if you're wondering, we're struggling and saving money for our future goals in life, and believe us, we haven't forget those that have supported over the years, it's one of the most greatest things that happened us in life, they're in our hearts, but not only because of the money, but because they believe in us, and we want somehow to pay them back, that probably doesn't mean much coming from us and it's understable, but I wish when you have a dream, you find people that wants to support you and not only detracters, and I sinceraly desire that for you ^^

This is borderline scamming. Not only did you accept the huge amount of money from the person who bought it, but you claim that its justified because its somehow a huge monetary effort to make one simple character design.
   The fact that not only could me and my fellow friends who are artists do this, but you claim that most of it goes into the production. What I don't understand is while money is money, and 1600 is tempting, why you would accept such a high price.
    If you loved them so much,  the thought of selling them would be completely null and void. Your starting bid was reasonable, but to accept that high of a price and think your justified for it is horrible. so tell ya what..since your just going to use this character for profit and to show the fact that adopts are idiotic  (since this is my second account) im going to use this character in my webcomic.
Have a lovely day~

Belliko is a popular artist and owns the popular closed species for this auction.
Wheras it IS a high amount of money to pay for a design, FoxFans are a popular species. Belliko owns it. So people will pay crazy prices for it. (And yes, I am aware this is old.)

Was she supposed to give the money back and say, "No, it's not worth this much"? What did you want her to do? If you're going to complain about something, then offer a solution. Maybe she needed the money for living expenses.
Seeing as you don't have any art on that account, and you're not using your main account, it seems like you're trying to hide something. We have no way of knowing if your art is good. I'm not saying your art is definitely bad, but for all we know, it might be.
You're not criticizing the price. You're complaining about Belliko. She's not even the owner of the character. Even if stealing AgenderedKing's character isn't copyright infringement, it's rude and inconsiderate. Clearly, not everyone thinks adopts are stupid if they're bidding on it and it's so popular. Yes, you have your opinion, but others have their opinion, and just because you think something, it doesn't mean you have to be rude about it.
Think it over, and have a lovely day too.

My response to this is quite simple. Whether you think i'm hiding something or not, or i'm speaking out of jealousy i'm not. If my art was better or worse it wouldn't change my opinion or my stance. I'm not going to show my main account not because i'm afraid to do so, but because it doesn't matter. I so happened to be on this account when I saw this, and as such I responded with this one.

Now for my second part of the response, just because it's popular doesn't mean it's right. In a perspective that you might not have considered, imagine I draw a character and give it to someone else. Is it now their character? that's essentially what i've been discussing or arguing. If someone buys a design to use for an oc, they can do it. sure. but I don't agree with it. Say I went online and say something I really wanted to put my own spin on, but it so happened to be similar to a design of an auction character. did I steal it? no. Should I credit the original? yeah. But paying money to get such a product when creativity you shouldn't have to do as such is wrong. It doesn't even have a bio or a backstory. The price should be lowered considerably, because some people might not understand whats going on and spend a bit to much on something that they didn't need to spend money on. commissions and character concepts as in story are fine. even to some extent auctions are fine. But not what happened here.

This is my opinion however and as much as you disagree, i'll never change my mind because I can only see flaws in this specific trade.

Yes, you can put your own spin on something that you saw as long as it isn't identical (Which is pretty hard to do). They weren't paying for the design, they were paying for the design of a closed species character. Popular closed species sell for more in auctions because people want them more. The bio/backstory is the foxfan lore. The owner probably thought it over a lot. He/She didn't barge into without thinking, and if so, could have sold it to another person. There was no set price. It was an auction. Auctions don't have a price limit set by the designer unless there is an autobuy, which Belliko chose not to add. The foxfan's worth was decided by the public. If you think AgenderedKing regretted buying the character, ask him/her.

There's flaws in every trade. Why you chose this one character when there are many other species when there are tons more where the average cost is for a character is higher is beyond me. This was an exception. Foxfans typically go for around $400-600. There are more expensive closed species.

We know it's hard to believe in people, or in anybody nowadays, however, we're still want to demostrate that we don't forget those who wanted to support us, that is our job and goal in life, only God knows if we're going to fullfill our promise, but we're going to try it, because all we want is to bring some magic to this world, money can help us to made it through our goals, and we hope this comment in future is going to be seen as a wrong opinnion. Yes I do believe that we sometimes understimate other people's job specially when something looks simple, we're not justifying what we know it's true, you're only assuming what you think it is, however I want to thank you for giving us the chance to proove you, you're wrong ^^

there is no wrong opinion. to say so disregards the meaning of opinions. I'm not saying that you shouldn't make money off of art. That is fair to do as such. But what your justification for making the auction so expensive is just plain wrong. Every artist deserves money to make their dreams come true. But what you are selling isn't a masterpiece (not in the fact that isn't a good drawing, but that it isn't fair to the consumer to claim it as such.) I'm not claiming you didn't put time and effort into making this. But you will never, and I stand by this...be able to convince me that it was worth that much money to produce and fund. People shouldn't have to pay out the ass to use a concept when all it is..is a concept. At the end of the day, I agree in commissions and other forms of artist to consumer arrangements. But while I don't agree with auctions, at least downgrade how expensive it is. Artists would make 50 conceptual drawings for people for that kind of money...

Well, time is the most valuable thing in this life, nobody in this world can make time to come back, no matter what you do, or how much money you have, time will be never come back, just think about it
We don't want to convince you our art worth that much, I understand if you don't like it, or you don't appreciate the time we put on this, beauty is in the eye of the watcher, however, we're convinced our art worth it, because the work you see now didn't happened in one day or two, or one month or even a year, no, is the result of almost of my life drawing since I was 12... I've missed many things in my life because I wanted to be good at drawing and designing, I know I'm not the best and I'll never be the best, but, there is passion in what we do, and I do believe there is a lot of people with passion, who are giving their lives to improve in what they love, those are the things we don't see in artists but, that happens, I do hope you can find art you would pay that much for it, a friend of mine spent this amount in a pair of shoes, that are amazing, but since I would never wear that kind of shoes, I wouldn't pay for them, however I do respect the shoes worth for her, because it's important for her

The amount of money you get shouldn't apply to the art before. That's like saying you're paying for an experience which isn't really true. I can appreciate any piece of art. But to think the amount of people who spent that much money (mainly if they live with say parents) and were for lack of a better way of saying it, duped. I think a huge question would be that if you accept refunds/let people who buy art from you that they can get a refund if they are dissatisfied. It's like if I say that my music or my writing is worth 200$. It might be to me, but it also might not be to other people. If you made it a specific price as a minimum, yet still allowed people to pay more if they pleased then that's fine. I just don't see the fairness in you dictating such a high price. I know people will still probably buy it, but the issue is in the principle. Optimism and passion are wonderful things, but they can lead down into a rough moral road if you let them blind you.

So I ask you again to disclaim to people whom buy from you that they can get a refund if they are unsatisfied and to make the prices ranging depending on what the buyer wants. (of course if you want a minimum of say 20 dollars so no one can give you 1 dollar, then you may.)

Well, where I live, experience costs a lot, studying a career cost a lot, and people who has more experience and studies are the ones to get better paids, so, yes, that's how it works in my country, and many countries that I know, but I know there are some countries where you get almost the same paids despite your experiencie and studies, we're totally understand what your saying we don't think the same as you, and I would probably value art different from you, I guess it would depends on the eye of the watcher.
Also, we don't know if you know it, but we didn't dictate the price, this was an auction, the starting bid was $15, and when we saw the bid increases we started adding extras, so yes, we worked more in this. Believe me, I understand what you're saying, even though this day, we feel bad for needing to sell our art for a living and for being able to make our dreams of having our own studio, because they're like our babies as dumb as it sounds, when we design them we want to keep most of them, but we need to do it, and it means a lot to us that people wanted to support us, we do offer refunds when we do customs and people don't like the result of course.

I like the fact that you commented this and deactivated, expecting to get haters and bad feedback.

So it's special because someone random on the internet decided to make it? Honey, I don't give a damn about who made it. I, and a lot of other people, base things design-wise. I don't give a damn about species, because all they do is limit people on what they can and cannot make. Let's say I make something similar to.... I dunno, a cinnadog. Now everyone attacks me because it looks similar. I'm limited from making fat anthro dogs with curly tails, now.
Either way, leave me the fuck alone for saying something that actually /makes fucking sense/.

Nope, just moved accounts. Yes, design is important, but people who are more popular get more views. It's a way of life. If I liked a presidential candidate, my opinion wouldn't matter because I'm one insignificant person. If a popular celebrity or someone famous liked a certain candidate, their opinion would matter, and it would influence other people. Yes, very different situations, but the same principle. Whether you like it or not, popularity matters. And judging by how popular closed species like sushi dogs, minkins, and foxfans are, a lot of people disagree with you. Closed species go for more because they're limited. Personally, I don't like closed species too much because most people can't afford them, but some people like the idea. I guess some people like owning something limited? I dunno. I think if you didn't know what a cinnamon was, you'd have a really hard time copying it. It's only when you somehow copy the rarities too.
If you're allowed to state your opinion, why aren't I allowed to? Banning Muslims from the US doesn't make sense to me, but it makes sense to other people.

Okay!  I agree, the person who bought this for 1,600 dollars is kinda crazy, and that they could have gave the money for a better cause, but, stealing is not right.  I understand you wanted this character and all but you should be the better person and just back away.  Though fox fans are copyrighted on DA, it isn't in the real world.  You can draw foxes with whatever tails you want.  But please, just back off.  I don't want people to start arguments over your comment.  Thanks!

Um well number one i'm only using it to make a statement. And number two the idea of selling OC's is flawed and not only that but if that were true this artist is only making a design. You can't copyright designs, nor do I believe there is any legal documentation saying "hey this cannot be replicated in anyway"

Now listen here. I know that many people find that buying an adopt like this for such an amount of money is absurd and was a stupid decision, and trust me I had my fair share of backlash from my friends and family. I was grounded too but I learned my lesson. And tell you what that I have no regrets of ever buying him. 

I know that the money went towards a good cause and helped somebody out and that is great. I adopted this character and so you have to ask me if you can use this character and not just use it because you want to. I owe the rights to this design. If you are an artist then you should know that it is rude and against the rules of the art community to use somebody's character without their permission. And because you just went ahead and probably going to use the character in your comic without contacting me first, I am denying you the rights to use it.

This is nothing more then a design. To call it a character is a slander to what characters are. I won't ask you anything of the sort. You can't deny me the rights to anything as even though you went through with the transaction theirs no legal documentation that declares you the owner.
    If anything the person you bought it from is still the only one to really call it an OC, even though that is a bit of a stretch. To say you own a design is idiotic under the fact that multiple designs have been reused and remastered. To block someone from using a conceptual design of a 2d character (that's has nothing more then a character draft) is like telling Nintendo that because you made a red plummer and "somehow copyrighted it, even though you didn't" Mario is infringing on Copyright. It doesn't make sense. Furthermore since you have no proof of ownership of a design that is just that a "design" I can use it all I want. Does it mean i'm infringing on your character? No. It means i'm taking a design and giving it life. Btw i'm making it a she~
   I understand you paid money for it, but the truth is what you bought, what it is and what it means aren't what your implying. Its a design and nothing close to a character. Maybe you gave it life, who knows I hope for your somehow justified 1600$ it was but unfortunately your opinion on what is legally yours and what isn't aren't up to you. The only way i'm breaking any sort of artist pact, is if I draw her in the same pose as another drawing. So thanks for telling me I can't use it, it doesn't matter anyways.

Technically, there's no difference between the way a company owns a character, and the way an individual owns a character. 
If you browse through dA's rules for even a moment and their copyright policies, maybe you could brush yourself up, as designs, art, and characters alike are considered personal property of the uploader [should it be rightfully theirs] and therefore is instantly protected, which is why those who blatantly copy and steal get DMCA's notices, the piece down, and in extreme cases, their accounts deactivated.
Re-colors are a good example of that. If it be a character owned by a large company like Nintendo, Hasbro, or Disney/the likes of which, or a character owned by an individual, that is re-colored, copied, or edited in any other form or situation, they receive a DMCA and the work is usually taken down within a week.
Yes, it is to say, a design of a fox based around cards cannot by copyrighted, but the fact that you are ignorant as to what makes it an actual character, the thought, effort, and other rights of the owner who has purchased and/or created said design says enough about you as the stupid, foolish and small person you are.
Toby Fox owns all of the characters in Undertale because he tailored them and their designs and personalities to his own specifics and qualities. All of the characters except So Sorry, because that is owned by another individual who purchased said character on FurAffinity. 
Andrew Hussies owns all of the characters from the Webcomic Homestuck as they were all of his, and his brother's creations.
Lauren Faust created the ponies of My Little Pony, but sold them, like this character here has been sold to AgenderedKing [sorry to tag], and their rights to Hasbro as she left [or was fired, not sure, don't really care.] and therefore handed them over.
When you buy a design here on DeviantArt, you are purchasing the rights to that specific design. You are purchasing the rights to say "Hey, this is mine, I'm going to love it, I'm going to personalize it, and I'ma make it mine and more unique and personally fitted than before." And your ignorance tells that you understand nothing of the legality and fundamentals of what characters actually are. Which is rather sad if you supposedly own/run a webcomic. 

By using the character and having gained no legal right, rather by paying or written form of consent by the legal owner, you're stealing. AgenderedKing spent 1,600$ on the character because they loved it so much. They saw something, they had an idea for this character. And I bet if you asked, you could see how many times they have commissioned others or drawn the character themselves and give the character life to nullify the blank look it has on-screen. To them, this character is very dear and holds a place in their heart. They are emotionally, physically, and mentally attached to this character. Sure the initial design is just a design, but the moment it's bought, it becomes a personal item that is usually never torn away. A design may pass hands, but by that time, it is a character. It has been given life, by one hand or many, and has a story. A purpose. That special little nook in the back of your brain you developed and changing into a more comfortable suiting for you. Something that has been tailored to that individual. 
Owning more than 267 characters, over 1000$ and more than four or five years of tailoring each one to how I see fit, you can rest assured I know more than my fair share of how it goes. My characters have led me to interact with others, they have let me express myself without the words I've never been able to say. They've expressed so many things of my life with even the smallest thing in their design. Many of my characters have stories, plots, craptons of art, and much more to their names, and all because I've set to give them a light that's special to them. Anybody here who has commented against you has more than certainly done the same--- and they're the creative bunch. The fact you apparently can't comprehend anything of what makes a character ad character means that all your webcomic is is just petty theft. Unless you want to be a hypocryte, stating that you've made characters and such and have personalized them to the extent they are yours, but understand nothing of what I've just said. Which maybe wouldn't surprise me, as a comment made by GriffinXDragon purely states what a lot of people are feeling while reading the stupidity and bullshit spewing from your virtual mouth. "Ahh without retarded people like you. I wouldn't be able to tell who the smart people were."

It's sad that people like you exist. Because not only did you only start the ENTIRETY of this comment section because you:
A) worried about what somebody else put their money to when it's legit none of your fucking business
B) apparently got jealous or angry somebody could make this kind of money off a "simple design"
and C) boasted that this was your second account, which also implies either you're not gutsy enough to do it from your main/first account, or something happened to said account which makes you look even worse.

Now kindly, fuck off of DeviantArt.
We don't like character thieves here, and you're not welcome.
Stay, and you're gonna have a bad time. Llama Emoji-66 (Orly) [V3] 
And OH, remember--- that 1600$ in the first place is most likely put to a lot of living expenses when paid. Maybe because you're not to that point, but some people who do these things actually have a thing called a life, and other things called bills and food and other things they need to pay for? 1600$ for an artist is certainly good, and they even answered what the money was put to, or is being put to. I don't really care nor know because again--- not my fuckin' business, like the purchasing and the character itself isn't your business, either.
