When people make adoptables, do you care about whether they use bases or not?

I don't care at all! I just look at the design.

Hmm, I prefer it if they at least use a base they made themselves.

I prefer people to draw each adoptable from scratch, with a new lineart for each one.

I prefer they use their own bases imo but I don't hold it against them or anything if they don't.

I usually just look at the design since that's what you're buying really, but
I do prefer adopts with custom lineart, it makes them more unique i think

Most of the time I don't really mind if the base was the artist's or not. However, I think that, when the base was made by the seller, the value becomes higher, because it's something purely made by own hands if you get what I mean. It's extra-work and they deserve a bit more worth.

The design's important but using a base can cause a limitation in design and looks kind of lazy. I guess it's kind of like shining up your product before you sell it. I think it's okay to use a base as long as you don't let the lines restrict the design but I think using different poses and what not helps.

Yea, I agree there.

I look for unique adoptables most of the time, like batches of monsters or something, even when I dont buy them, so it makes sense that I don't care much for the ones made on the same base or lineart. I wouldnt mind if I was more interested in normal animal adopts I guess (cuz theres a ton of animal bases and linearts) but since I am not into them I really dont care.

That makes sense indeed!

I find it doesn't really bother me when someone uses a base that isn't theirs. Unless they "abuse" the base (say it's a cat base, but they add dragon wings, different eyes, horns, and change the shape of the base a bit), I'd rather they make it on their own.

tbh I don't buy adoptables bc like I have enough strange animal things lmao
but I think it's better if they at least make the base themselves ??
Or at least use something that the artist has given permission to use for making adoptables bc otherwise they're basically using someone else's art to make money

Hmmm, most people who make free linearts have no problems with that :P But yea.

I think as long as they have stated somewhere that they don't mind their bases being used for things that are paid for it's fine tbh

It is, I just dislike using bases made by others myself :P
RehQuQ's avatar
Oh ^^ well ^^ For myself, I'm very bad in doing Bases because of my bad anatomy xD ^^ so I need to use bases from other users ^^
