yeah sorry but like
no matter who you are
no matter how dA famous you are
no matter how many pageviews or watchers you have
no matter how popular your closed species is
you do not have the right to "copyright" a fucking trait
you may copyright DESIGNS. you may reserve ART under a creative commons license.
but you CANNOT claim a SINGLE TRAIT or ASPECT of your species, or even MORE THAN ONE aspect of your species, as for YOUR USE alone.
you do not have the right to tell others what they can or cannot draw.
you do not have the right to bully others into changing their art because they copied one detail that you mistakenly believe you own because you made a precious wittle fucking "SPECIES" out of it.
You do not have the right to sic your drooling, mindless followers on less popular artists and get them bullied and harassed for doing something they are fully within their rights to do but happens to offend you.
