♥General Rules

-Minor edits are allowed. If you're wondering about an edit, feel free to ask about it.

  • Please do not add any rare qualities to any of my original closed species.
  • Do not drastically change colors or markings-- color shifts are okay to a certain point, and you may change/take away/add markings to an extent, but not to the point where the design is almost unrecognizable.


-Please do not use my designs, species, or artwork for commercial usage unless an agreement was made with me.
-Feel free to give your design a new wardrobe. (clothes)
-Repeatedly breaking the rules, trying to convince others to break my rules, or any other unwanted behavior may result in ban from buying certain species directly from me or my adopts/commissions all together.
-If unwanted behavior continues, I will have to resort to blocking you. Block evading will be reported.
-I hold the right to refuse to sale to you for any reason.

♥Personal Use

*Non-original Species Designs
Non-Original Species Adoptables are purchased designs which you can use to make your own character. 

You may name the character, create a personality and background information for the character as well as make design changes, create a world for them, and involve them in personal stories. However you may not edit/alter the original art for the design.

*Original Species Character Designs (Closed Species)
Closed Species Adoptables are purchased designs which you can use to make your own character which come with premade world, lore, and activities you can participate in with the design.

You may name the character, create a personality and background information for the character as well as make minor design changes. However you may not edit/alter the original art for the design, the world, or guidelines of the species you have purchased.

*Original Species Character Designs (Open Species)
Open Species Adoptables are purchased designs which you can use to make your own character which come with a loose premade world, lore, and may have activities you can participate in with the design.

You may name the character, create a personality and background information for the character as well as make minor design changes. However you may not edit/alter the original art for the design. You do not have to follow the world and lore closely.

-You may sell a character design you received through trade for the original price listed on the set it sold for!
