Should you purchase an adopt please be aware of the below things:
You are buying the design of the adoptable to use how you see fit, be it for writing/RP/drawing/ect however the original drawing still belongs under my copyright and will remain in my gallery.
You are free to repost my original watermarked design to other sites your character will be appearing on so long as any reposts are credited back to me.
You will be listed under the adopt as the adopts owner once it's sold! So if the adopt changes hands please be sure to let me know so I can update the listed owner^^
Yes, my adopts can be traded/resold as long as original credit remains intact! Please be aware that should you purchase one of my designs from another user these rules remain applicable.
All adopts come with an unwatermarked pgn or jpg file of my original drawing! This file is not for reposting,
it's gifted for personal use and is not something I charge extra for. Upon full purchase of adopt simply tell me if you want the pgn or the jpg file and it will be sent to you via Sta.sh!
The current adoptables gender is not set, you are free to change that and do what you wish same as things like backstories, ect.
I don't require credit to be given each time you upload your own work including an adoptable purchased from me. Just don't take credit for the original design.
DO NOT TRACE OR COLOUR OVER MY ORIGINAL DRAWING! You are purchasing the rights to using the design, the rights to my original drawing are not up for purchase and I retain copyright over the original drawing and design.
Yes I do allow gifting, reselling and trading of my adoptables once they've been purchased, SO LONG AS the below rules are followed and credit is always given!!
If you have purchased a design and drawn the adoptable, thus selling it using your own sheet you are free to set the price as high or as low as you like. However even if you are selling using your own sheet, copyright for the original design needs to be included in the description.
If you want to resell an adoptable but do not have your own drawing to put up you can still resell with my watermarked drawing, however there are price restrictions. You cannot resell it for any higher then the price you purchased the adoptable for, and full credit must be given to me for the drawing.
Trading and gifting has no restrictions on it, you can gift and trade as you wish!
You are free to sell/gift/trade the adoptable on sites other then DeviantArt, so long as full credit and links to the original adopt design are provided!
If you complete a sale/trade/gifting of the adoptable to another user, even if it's done offsite please note me with the link to the new user. No matter how the adoptable changes hands anyone using my design is subject to the terms and conditions.
To pay for adoptables you can go about it one of two ways, first being through DeviantArt points, the second being through paypal. Prices will be listed individually on each Adoptables option, and will vary depending on the level of adoptable design or if they're for special events.
I will put an adoptable on reserve for someone, for 24 hours at a time. Extensions can be made depending on the situation which will be taken case by case, depending on the popularity of the adopt and what the buyer requests. However the adoptable will not close until the funds have been transferred and the purchase is complete. If the hold time period is up and the purchase has not been made the adoptable will be made avalable once more for purchase.
Claiming an adoptable as your own original work and removing applicable credits to my copyright on original design will result in a DMCA takedown report being filed. That wouldn't be fun for any of the involved parties, so pleeeease stay to the rules
If you want an original character in the style of the adoptables I draw without being tied to the adopt rules, you can always check out my commissions journal
and commission me to draw your own original character.
