❖ Adoptables are purchased designs which you can use to make your own character. You may name the character, create a personality and background information for the character as well as make minor design changes. However you may not edit/alter the original art for the design, the world, or guidelines of the species you have purchased in any way.
❖ Alterations to the design are allowed however these alterations are not to be made to the original art and are limited to minor details so that the character still maintains the main features of the adopt. In simpler terms only minor edits are allowed. Drastic changes are not allowed.
❖ The design and art must be credited to me when used.
❖ When trading or selling the design I must be contacted first and foremost.
❖ All payment should be in USD.
All payment should be made through PayPal, via invoice method. I will invoice you. DO NOT send me any payment, it will be refunded.
At least a partial payment is required within three days of your request being accepted; failure to do so will result in your request for ownership of that particular design to be dropped. If you need more time, let me know.
❖ I accept full refunds within a half month. If you feel truly unhappy with the design or you are simply no longer interested in owning it, I will refund you.
Refunds requested for longer than half a month will only have a 80% return. This is not negotiable.
Keep in mind, that you can resell it to others for the same price as long as you link them back here.
By buying one you’re purchasing my labor and only a partial right to a design. I retain all copyrights over my work, which include but are not limited to the right to distribute, reproduce or use the image as a sample for sales/self-promotion.
