Q. why are your adopts so expensive?
A. they actually are not, my prices are based on the time i put into each adopt (1-5 hours) i charge about 100-200p per hour on my adopts (working wage here is 8usd an hour which is well under living wage) not counting the time it takes to prep the base
Q. i want free adopts! i've seen you give them away before!
A. short answer is 'no' the long answer is that i rarely give adopts away for free and i ONLY give them to personal friends, people i am doing trades with and people who buy a lot of art/adopts in a short span of time. this is quite literally my only job
Q. i don't want to pay money for your adopts. plenty of people give them away for free and you should to. i don't think it is wrong to just take what i want, what's the big deal?
A. the big deal is that is STEALING you are outright stealing from me and breaking the law when you do it. don't steal from me(or anyone else). it is wrong and actively hurts me when i cannot pay for my internet, my hospital bills(and there are a lot of them) or for my meals. show a little respect, please
Q. why do you only hold for 24 hours?
A. generally holds are abandoned/forgotten after the first day or two and i only have a short time to get my adopts out there and i cannot do that if someone has half my adopts on hold for 'just in case' making it impossible for real buyers to get them
Q. where did the set i bought from go??
A. i generally have 10 or less adopt sheets open at a time and as sets sell i remove them from my gallery. i do leave up stash'd adopts indefinitely though so DO save the notes with your unwatermarked images
Q. why do your rules say can't i resell species adopts i buy from you?
A. this may change in the future but for now i see too many people selling adopts that they either don't have permission to sell or don't know the creator of and so cannot get permission. i would rather people did not buy my species adopts because i don't allow resells then to 'forget' i made them and then sell them off to others who then get reported for 'stealing' my designs because i was never notified of the transaction. i do allow selling of regular adopts though
Q. can i post the adopt i bought on my da/website/ect?
A. of course! if you buy it and i am credited as the creator you can post it anywhere you would like<3
Q. can i mod the adopt i bought or only use part of it? pretty please?
A. you can totally mod/dissect any adopts you've bought however you want and if you can't mod but want to then you can totally ask me to<3 usually i charge a small fee but i want you to be happy and would gladly see the adopt 'fixed' than see it mouldering in stash never to be used
Q. do you do mature adopts? what if i bought an adopt and i want an MA version?
A. i do not often make them but i am always open to making MA versions of regular adopts for a small fee at the time of adoption, feel free to ask when buying<3
Q. i bought an adopt, can i use it for rps?
A. if you credit me as the creator of the art then you can do whatever you'd like for it, as long as i am credited it is a-ok to use it for rps
Q. can i trace my adopt to make art?
A. no. please draw your own art or if you are absolutely in love with the pose go buy the base, a good percentage of my adopts are on a base. if you cannot find the base then ask
Q. i don't want my adopt anymore, what should i do?
A. well, i do not do buybacks but i do let buyers sell, trade or gift adopts to others so if you know someone who might want it you can pass it along to them, just remember i DO still require credit and notification of the transaction. i have had a few people not do this and it got kind of messy
Q. can i use the adopt i bought to make more adopts?
A. depends on how you go about it. i generally allow breeding of non specie adopts but send me a note first and let's talk
Q. my question was not answered, help?
A. if you have more questions please feel free to note me. i am on almost every day so i will get back to you within 24 hours with an answer
