Comments permanently disabled because of spam and chain letters and other random nonsense. If you want to show me your wolves, feel free to post links on my profile or send notes or just mention me in the description(a lot of people credit me that way, so heck yea, I get to see all your fancy wolves). You may message me with questions(Do not ask me to update, that is not a valid question), but please don't ask for certain maker types or try to give me suggestions for my next maker. I already have projects of my own lined up and there's no scarcity of ideas in that area. This game will no longer be updated.

Rules are simple.
Do not sell the artwork for real money.
 Do not re-create the lineart and redistribute. 
You MAY create adoptables and sell the characters for points or fake money though. No real cash profits. Just know that when you're selling adoptables, you are not selling the rights to the artwork, just the design of the character.
The artwork is mine, but the characters are yours. Feel free to draw them in your own style and use them as you like for books, stories, roleplay, etc.
And obviously, don't claim to have drawn them. A link back or credit is appreciated, but not required.

HOW TO TAKE A SCREENSHOT

For PC- There should be a key on your keyboard that says Prt Scr(Print Screen), press it, then open up an image program like Paint or Photoshop, GIMP, etc. Go to Edit, then choose Paste and save your image.
For Laptops-There should be an "Fn" button somewhere on your keyboard, press and hold it and hit your prt scr button at the same time. Then open up an image program like Paint or Photoshop, GIMP, etc. Go to Edit, then choose Paste and save.
For Macs-Command+Shift+4 makes you select an area of the screen and then saves the shot on the desktop.

FAQ/Trouble Shooting

Problem: I found a bug.
A: I no longer have access to the source file of this game, so I can't update it anymore(IT IS TEN. YEARS. OLD.) Sadly, the bug is there to stay. Though try refreshing or play the one on Dolldivine and see if it works better there.

Q: I don't know how to screenshot. How do I do that?
A: I mean, the instructions are on the game itself and in the description above. I don't know how to help you any more than that. Maybe you're a visual learner, so look up on youtube, "How to take a screenshot." Taking a screenshot is not a function in the game itself, it's a function on your computer. Just google instructions for your specific device if you're having trouble.

Q: Can you make a save function?
A: Flash 8, the program that I used to create this game, uses ActionScript 2.0, which does not have the capability to program such a function. Games that you have seen a save function on were made with ActionScript 3.0, which I HAVE NOT been educated on. And to you rude, entitled people asking me to go off and learn 3.0(not that I haven't already wasted days of my life TRYING), it's like me telling you to go make a game like this. It will be easy, right? Right. Right now, do eet now, get to da choppa. >BI 

Q: How do I save the image if I don't have an image program?
A: I once worked in a place that sold computers. I didn't see a single computer that didn't have some sort of image pasting program, so this idea does not compute. However, you obviously need something that you can paste a screenshot into. The only thing I can think of is to get GIMP or Microsoft Paint. GIMP is free and works just like photoshop. If you need extra help for something like this though, please consult someone like a parent or computer knowledgeable person(Or Google!). I've never used GIMP before, so I really can't give opinions or help with it's installation. And if for some reason you can't get your screenshot function to work, go to google and search for help there.

Q: When are you going to update this?
A: Never again! I no longer have access to the source file of this game, so I can't update it anymore(IT IS TEN. YEARS. OLD.)

Q: Can you please add new stuff?
A: See the previous question. ^

Q: Can you add more poses?
A: First of all, it took me 6 months to build this game just using ONE pose. And second, see the previous question.

Q: What program did you use to make this?
A: I used Macromedia Flash 8, which you can already tell by the title(latest releases are owned by Adobe), is an old version of flash. It's no longer available. Flash games are pretty much extinct. I have no idea how you would begin to make your own game like this, please do not ask me to teach you especially if you don't understand the basic concepts of programming. Take a class, search through youtube. I am not a teacher!

Q: Can I use this to make a wolf? / Can I use this to make a wolf based on a character that isn't a wolf? / Can I use this at all? Etc, etc.
A: You do not need to ask to use it! If I didn't want people using it, it wouldn't be on the internet, that's for sure.

Q: Can I use the character I create for a book/roleplay/movie/game?
A: The artwork belongs to me, so you can't use it in a book or movie or game(feel free to post it to a roleplay website, if they allow that). The character itself though, belongs to you. So you may roleplay them, write a story about them, or build a game around the character to your heart's content. As long as my artwork doesn't show up in the final product, everything is good.

Q: Can I use the artwork in my free game? / Can I use the artwork in my non-profit book?
A: No. Even if the game or book is non-profit and you gave credit, the wolf maker's intended purpose(aside from killing time and having derpy fun)is to help with the creation and ideas of characters and also to use as a visual reference for those who may lack the artistic skill to draw their character. This is not a resource engine to build your games or book publications with, so don't do it, because it's TACKY.

Q: Can I use the image for an avatar/icon/profile pic?
A: As long as you aren't claiming the artwork as your own, go for it. Not to toot my own horn, but most people recognize the wolf maker wolf as a doll base anyways, so I don't mind people using them in this way. In fact, I love seeing wolf maker avatars in the wild!
