Terms of Service



My Art


:bulletblue: If you intend to post my art on another platform/site, please be sure to ask me beforehand and give me proper credits! (You do not have to ask me if it is Toyhou.se, so long as you credit me)

:bulletblue: You may NOT use my art for any commercial/for profit purposes.

:bulletblue: You cannot claim the art as your own creation.

:bulletblue: I do not allow tracing or heavily referencing of my art.


:bulletblack:Commission Work:bulletblack:

:bulletblue: I will not start working on the commission until payment has been received.

:bulletblue: All paid for commissions will have the option to view WIPs/sketches before the final product is made (this includes seeing a sketch and/or the lineart). You may ask for revisions in either stage, but once both have been approved, I do not take revision requests.

:bulletblue: If you need to have a commission revised/fixed AFTER it is finished and all WIPs have been approved, I have the right to either decline your request for a revision or I will request a revision fee.

:bulletblue: All art I make will be posted to my account at my leisure. If you commission me and would like to keep it private, it will cost an additional fee.

:bulletblue: You are responsible for keeping track of all art you have bought! If I store or delete artwork from my dA, I am not responsible for it and will not be giving refunds. However, you are free to inquire to see if I still have the original file! 

:bulletblue: There are no refunds once the commission has been started.





My Designs



:bulletblue: If you intend to post my designs on another platform/site, please be sure to ask me beforehand and give me proper credits! (You do not have to ask me if it is Toyhou.se, so long as you credit me)

:bulletblue: You may NOT use my designs for any commercial/for profit purposes.

:bulletblue: You cannot claim the design as your own creation.

:bulletblue: You are responsible for keeping track of all designs you have bought! If I store or delete artwork from my dA, I am not responsible for it and will not be giving refunds. However, you are free to inquire to see if I still have the original file! 

:bulletblue: There are no refunds once the design is bought!


:bulletblack:Closed Species:bulletblack:

:bulletblue: I, Ponkochi, retain full rights to all of my species. Preferably if you could, please credit me for the species at least once when posting images of the design. Any of my species cannot be made without my permission/consent.

:bulletblue: Rules, species status, and values may change at my discretion. This means that I can change prices or a previously open species to closed, and vice versa. All revisions will be publicly announced by an update on this journal or a related deviation.


:bulletblack:Editing Designs:bulletblack:

:bulletblue: If it is a one-off design, you are allowed to edit/change the design and species to your liking upon buying/receiving the design. You do not have to ask my permission. However, the design itself is still considered one design, so all versions of that design must be traded/sold together!

:bulletblue: Regarding Closed Species designs, small edits like marking changes/color changes are allowed. If you are changing traits, the traits can only be swapped for the same rarity, unless the species has no trait rarity chart. The redesign must still resemble the original design. All changes must be approved by Ponkochi.  

:bulletblue: If you would like to change a Closed Species design to another species entirely, meaning you will be getting rid of the Closed Species counterpart, the design will be considered voided under that particular Closed Species. 
(Example: Taking a Seagon design and using it solely as a one-off tiger design. Therefore, the Seagon design does not exist anymore.) 

:bulletblue: If you would like for a Closed Species design to have multiple forms, they will not be voided.
(Example: Having a Seagon design and using an Astroflare MYO slot to give it a second form. Can also work with giving them one-off forms like a human form, for example.)


:bulletblack:Buying/Trading/Reselling and Vouchers:bulletblack:

:bulletblue: Pulling out of bids/offers or hiding/editing them to lower amounts can result into being banned from future design sales! This includes failure to pay or failing to respond/avoiding contact for payment.

:bulletblue: Designs can only be resold for the original sale price or lower! Regardless of how you obtained them (resell, trade, gift, etc.) you're allowed to sell them if Ponkochi sold them. You can check for their original sale price by finding the original auction/sale deviation, looking through toyhou.se ownership history if it was created by Ponko on TH, or a masterlist if they are a closed species.

:bulletblue: If a design does not have an original sale price, meaning they were a raffle/gift/etc., they cannot be resold!

:bulletblue: Price of commission/extra artwork will NOT be allowed to be added to the resell value anymore (due to the fact that I have had people abuse this privileged).

:bulletblue: Vouchers for commissions, other designs, and real worlds items are okay! Vouchers for giftcards cannot exceed original sale value of design. A voucher will be counted as a trade and NEVER as a resell! The person paying for the voucher always needs to be the one directly handling the buying process (whether it be bidding or paying for an item on their card). Money should never directly go to the person trading the design.

:bulletblue: Any of my species can be traded, gifted, or co-owned with a main owner. Whenever a change in ownership is made, it is necessary to notify the masterlist of the new owner! 
Just go here to update ownership Ponkopedia.

:bulletblue: Any trade involving a Closed Species must be completed on both ends before ownership of the design is transferred.

:bulletblue: All Closed Species must be registered under the current owner on the Masterlist in order to be eligible for sale/trade.




General Rules



:bulletblue: Scamming other user's by selling the same design to multiple users, selling designs that you cannot sell, trading multiple versions of the design, or any other similar scams is against my T.O.S. and will result in consequences.

:bulletblue: By purchasing/receiving one of my designs, you are agreeing to accept and comply to these Terms of Service.

:bulletblue: By purchasing a commission/receiving art made by me, you are agreeing to accept and comply to these Terms of Service.

:bulletblue: Those who break these terms of service may also be permanently banned and blocked at my discretion, from all activities related to this deviantART account and anything else I may do in the future.

:bulletblue: Additional to that, if you break these rules and will not fix your wrong doings privately, I will be forced to make it public to warn others on this site. 

:bulletblue: If you are caught scamming others where my designs are involved, I will be taking immediate action to block, ban, and warn others.
