  1. I would like to kindly ask the mods for this thread to be locked as I will no longer be active in the forums. If at all possible I would like it not to be closed completely so that I can still refer to requests here and hopefully finish them when I find more time and peace in my life to do so (Though I will be giving them through PM and not posting them here). If that's not possible then I do ask that the thread be closed/removed and I will try to save the requests on my comp. Thank you for your time and a big thanks to everyone who has encouraged me, supported me, complimented my skills or even just took the time to look at this thread! I'm very flattered you like my art and you are more than welcome to follow me on tumblr or deviantart where I am active! <333 ~Ace
  2. See Ana, this is all I was trying to say in the beginning lol. That an artist should be able to express their opinion and have a say/and or hand in creation of a hybrid that is created from their dragon - that's all! I just kinda felt attacked when I was told that I had no right to have an opinion on the matter if I were a spriter and someone wanted to make a hybrid from my dragon. Also you seemed to be of the same mindset in the Pillow Dragon hybrid thread so I found it odd that now you were stating that an artists shouldn't have a say? Unless I've gravely misinterpreted what you were saying last night here, in which case I apologize deeply - I was having a terrible day lol. But anyhow since you seem to agree now that it's okay for the original artist to negotiate and have a say I suppose it's neither here nor there. And so yes, I agree with several other comments that the rules need to change to be clear and reflect what exactly needs to be done so there is no confusion. I also want to reiterate that I LOVE hybrids and have no qualms with them whatsoever, even if I do forget about them in the actual game (like I said, I usually just pick them up in AP, but then again I'm not a huge breeder - it could also be the fact that I haven't been here all too long and no hybrids have been released in my time to tempt me to breed for them~). I would love to see more hybrids and I think we have a large enough pool of dragons now that many different hybrids could be potentially created (that was a concern of mine at first - that for some reason it'd be limited), but I'm sure that even if one dragon has been used in one hybrid, it can be used in another, right? With artist's permission ofc - because I think that'd be awesome and just further the breeding options~.
  3. Bleh, after spending all this time trying to type a response I'm just gonna say forget it lol. I really don't want to argue this though I still have the right to an opinion regardless of what the copyright laws here are :/
  4. ^^^ This. The problem is that even if the original art isn't being used in a hybrid concept, you are still taking themes/parts/ideas from the original concept. It would kinda be like if someone liked one of my OCs and maybe someone else's and made a love child from them - taking aspects from both and incorporating them into their new OC. Since my OC would be half of the driving force for their creation I sure as heck would want them to ask me first ; 7 ; And I would still reserve the right to say no. @Saynna: Oh gosh, no I wasn't suggesting that you didn't care, I'm sorry! ; 7 ; I was just responding to that quote of the rule that states it was a curtsey to contact that artist because it's my opinion that it should be required. Edit: I'm slow typer lmao But for whatever reason, if explicit permission isn't required here then whatevs I guess ;; It's still concerning to me;;;
  5. Actually, though for some reason it isn't required to get the original artist's/spriter's permission - they can still come in and say 'no'. That happened recently in DR with a Pillow Dragon hybrid and I'm going to assume because of legalities, even if the original spriters were not asked during the process, TJ would have to track them down after the fact if he had interest any given hybrid concept. At least, this is my understanding...and as a professional artist myself I just find it odd that permission wouldn't be required in making a hybrid in the first place. I certainly would like the final say on any hybrid concept that involved any dragon of mine that ever made it in cave. Edit: That isn't to say I wouldn't love to see more! Although, admittedly, I keep forgetting about the current hybrids ; I usually just pick up their eggs in the AP instead of breeding them myself.
  6. I know I really should see my family today because it's been so long but UGH I hate social gatherings; they drain the life outta me and give me a headache and I know no one really likes me on that side of the family anyway because they're super religious and hi I'm gay. Hopefully it'll go by fast and there better be food is all I'm sayin'.

    I just found out not too long ago that you actually have a better chance of yielding more offspring if you breed two different breeds as apposed to two of the same. I also don't really think PBs are sought after more than non-PBs but I've only been a member for a few months so idk haha.
  8. Aww thankee Mage <3 It's okay, I haven't been keeping up in this part of the forums either, I'm such a butt ; 7 ; But really I'm just so busy and dA and Tumblr usually come first for me. But I do occasionally see what ya'll post and want you all to keep up the awesomeness <333

  16. I've had this idea for frog-inspired dragons for months now, and after having had the pleasure of drawing for someone else's frog-dragons in DR I thought I'd revive my own idea. This is a Dart Pygmy (based off red dart frogs): These are just wips and concepts; who knows where this will go 8D I'll have to finish up my other two concepts first too cryyyyyy
