Before I get into what I'm about to  say, please know that I love you all and think you are good artists. Don't worry, it's not controversial, just something that I realized I need to deal with before it gets out of hand.

Most of you probably know that Candle is my most popular character. Many people like her design, and quite a few random gifts I've gotten are of her. Now, I do love and appreciate all of these, but...

Candle: Official Reference by Zeldeon

Please take a look at her reference. Notice the orange stripe? The one that comes down from one side of her face to the yellow tail-tip? A lot of people have been getting this wrong. I don't plan on changing her design to comply with others' mistakes. Next time you draw Candle, please please please get her design right. Would you like it if someone messed up your character? No. I've been trying to be really patient about it but it occurred to me that if I can't expect my friends to get it right, then why should people who do commissions get it right? Her design is very simple, and I'm not even that picky about the exactness of her colors. It's light grey wings, dark grey stripe, red stripe, orange stripe, yellow tip, and the four leg bands go down from red to yellow.

Next time you draw my characters, please check their references.

I know how you feel Ping, everyone always draws Iram's eyes wrong. He has a white iris with a gold pupil that's got a slit down the middle, but everyone thinks he just has a yellow iris |D

Anyway I'm sorry if I've been drawing Candle wrong, I usually look on petpages for refs and only found the adopts that other people had done previously (and there was no orange stripe). I'll be more careful in the future~

Ahaha it's okay Ver, I'll put her reference up on her page so that doesn't happen again.

I hate it when people do that. Most people did it with my pikachu oc and I got ticked and so I changed her design and also due to the fact some random person copied my oc's design.

Yeah, I know how you feel. But stealing... that hasn't happened to me yet, but that's not good.

Yeah it's not good. This random person told me and I got really mad. I take a lot of time into making my characters and someone has to go posing as one of MY original characters or fan made ones. It's downright rude. And trust me, when I get a request or something, I make sure I get every detail right before it's ready to post.

Yes! Swiftstar is my most-used since I like, never use my Pokesonas anymore. I think I should bring Thunder back since the Pikachu is really what I'm known for. xD

Ooooh yes, I'd like to see a little more of your pokesonas~

I know, I really need to draw mine. |D And I need to make a new Icon for myself.
