What is your color choice?

It's very common on DA to see artists posting still images of characters (not even a reference sheet) and selling them. I don't get it at all!
For example, here is someone selling premade fairy characters for $40 each:
People buy these and use them as-is? I don't know. Literally all the artist is selling is a character design. I guess the buyer then takes the design and uses it for roleplay? Hires other artists to do fan art of the character they bought? What's even more confusing is that the artist often puts requirements that you can't change or adjust the character design you buy.
Here's an artist who draws digital outfits and sells them for $50-100 each. You aren't allowed to change the design or colors of the outfit when you buy it.
This makes no sense to me! As a customer (who is a fellow full-time artist), a design I cannot adjust is utterly useless. Designs need to be slimmed way down for animation, or colors changed to fit different scenarios. On the flip side, as a person with no artistic skill, if I wanted to buy some artwork, I would hire an artist to create something customized for me - not some random adoptable that comes with a bunch of strings attached.
What are your thoughts on this?
Mine was, "Can a style of art be copyrighted?" I had to do a lot of research to figure that one out. The answer is actually yes, it can. The person has to willfully have been copying your style to profit from people thinking it's you.

My identity is hidden under many layers. This is just another piece.
Okay then, reliable-fount-of-information-called-Tumblr. Does deviantART have the right to sell the art people upload?
Let's look at DA's Terms of Service and policies. I translated all of the relevant policies you agreed to when you started using the site.
deviantART is, unless otherwise stated, the owner of all copyright and data rights in the Service and its contents. Individuals who have posted works to deviantART are either the copyright owners of the component parts of that work or are posting the work under license from a copyright owner or his or her agent or otherwise as permitted by law. You may not reproduce, distribute, publicly display or perform, or prepare derivative works based on any of the Content including any such works without the express, written consent of deviantART or the appropriate owner of copyright in such works. deviantART does not claim ownership rights in your works or other materials posted by you to deviantART (Your Content). You agree not to distribute any part of the Service other than Your Content in any medium other than as permitted in these Terms of Service or by use of functions on the Service provided by us. You agree not to alter or modify any part of the Service unless expressly permitted to do so by us or by use of functions on the Service provided by us.
16. Copyright in Your Content
deviantART does not claim ownership rights in Your Content. For the sole purpose of enabling us to make your Content available through the Service, you grant to deviantART a non-exclusive, royalty-free license to reproduce, distribute, re-format, store, prepare derivative works based on, and publicly display and perform Your Content. Please note that when you upload Content, third parties will be able to copy, distribute and display your Content using readily available tools on their computers for this purpose although other than by linking to your Content on deviantART any use by a third party of your Content could violate paragraph 4 of these Terms and Conditions unless the third party receives permission from you by license.
This page shouldn't be called a "policy" because it isn't. The page explains copyright basics. It has instructions on what to do if someone uploads your art to the site and infringes on your copyright.
Lots of words.
Each artist keeps the copyright and ownership of the art they upload to the site. By uploading a piece of art, you give DA a royalty-free license so that they can display it on the site without you suing them. You give DA the right to:
1) Electronically publish your art or pieces of your art.
2) Resize your art, make collages, and "alter" your art in similar ways.
4) Use your art to market and advertise deviantART.
5) Use your DA name, profile, and bio to promote and market deviantART.
6) Give any of the above rights to other people and companies through a sublicense. Note: This is probably so DA can hire outside advertising companies to make ads about deviantART and stuff like that. It does not allow DA to sell your art to third parties.
DA must get permission from an artist to use their art for any commercial purpose.
If somebody steals your art on DA and makes shirts out of it, DA has indemnity. This means you can't sue deviantART. Instead you have to go after the person who stole your art
So did Hot Topic steal your art? Go sue Hot Topic.
If you want to upload .mov, .mp4, .wmv, .avi, dot-whatever video files, you need to apply to DeviantArt's film community.
One way to make any panel more fun is to ask a question. I did have a serious question to ask at the Animator's Panel, but everyone else was doing that so I changed my mind in line and did a fun one. Before I got to the mic the moderator asked me what my question was. I wasn't expecting that, so I completely blanked for 30 seconds and could only remember the serious question. It was horrible. I can't recall who the moderator was, but he must have thought I was crazy.
Bronycon completely changed my opinion of cosplay. Had I known it was so interesting, I might have been more show-accurate about my Luna outfit. I made one that I could actually wear in non-brony public - and yet some of you still wanted my picture. I was shocked. You made me happy. Thanks.
I saw this image and instantly fell in love with it. The print is by and . Soarin's expression is perfect.
If you spot me please come say hello. (Do it!) I'll be the only one with my name on my butt.
