because they deleted their account so whoops

This has been spreading in the little part of the MMD community I actually still pay attention to, and yeah, you can see why it's wrong.
SUPPORT MMD NOW AND WIN BONUS HAIR TEXTURES by ilovecat07661AJ
I'm using this as an example for MANY, MANY PEOPLE ON DEVIANTART TOO, SO IF YOU THINK I'M GOING WAY OVERBOARD WITH THIS OVER A TROLL TOO BAD, THIS IS A GENERALIZATION.

They've already deleted their account so it looks like there's no need to report them unless they come back under a different name BUT IF THEY LOOK UP THEIR NAME ON DEVIANTART LET ME SPLIT THIS INTO PARTS:
Selling original work, which is legal
If you were only selling the hair textures, and the hair textures were YOUR OWN, ORIGINAL WORK, NOT TAKEN FROM ANY MODEL, then it'd be somewhat more okay; the hair textures are your own. You own the rights to your own work, which is completely acceptable.
Selling other's work, which is illegal
If you are selling other's work, including edits, you are selling copyrighted material, which is not okay. Copyright law states that as soon as a creation becomes tangible (including in the form of digital media), it is given copyright protection. Copyright states that the creator and the creator alone may reproduce their own work, create derivatives (edits, which you may not unless the Creative Commons license allows derivatives), redistribute (in most cases redistribution is not allowed unless for private uses), publicly perform the work, publicly display the work, or digitally transmit the work. ALL of which, in most licenses, are not allowed.

When the copyright is infringed upon, which you did, you are susceptible to a fine of up to $500,000 or even in some cases $1 million and imprisonment for a term of up to five to ten years. We are trying to get you to see that copyright infringement is not okay and in fact can get you in serious trouble so if you are going on about "this is perfectly fine" please get your head out of your ass and think straight for once.

While you may have made the textures yourself, you still didn't make the display picture yourself, which is still a form of copyright infringement. While you're on the internet, yeah, sure, it only counts as a report and possibly closing your account, which isn't as drastic, but you get why we're worked up, right?

Troll or not, you still can't do that. If you want to troll, do some silly recolors with models that allow it. Doesn't hurt anyone and still manages to get people mad.
If you come back to dA
If you choose to sell textures again in the future, the best thing to do would be to CLEARLY LABEL "MMD Hair Textures for Sale" with a picture of your textures on a model (that allows editing in the readme of course, or a model you made yourself) and to get on with your life. The people in the comments weren't trying to get you to leave deviantART, they were trying to stop you from illegal activity.
DON'T BE VAGUE
If you were only selling hair textures, it was a misinterpretation on everyone's part, on the commenters' for not knowing, but mostly on you for not clearly stating what you are selling, and also for not having a picture made by yourself. Simply opening the program, loading a model in with your texture, and taking a picture would yield much better results. The only time you should be using another's art for commercial use is if you obtain their permission first, and, in most cases, pay them for it.

THIS HAS BEEN AN OPEN LETTER, AND I DOUBT YOU'LL SEE IT, but, if you do, just heads up--I'm not antagonizing you, I'm just saying, be more clear with what you're selling, and don't take other's work. Bad idea to. It's like plagiarizing, which I'm sure you're familiar with your teachers telling you not to do (in a lot of places you can get expelled for it, or an auto F in the class).

ok goodbye friends avy out
I'm doing anywhere from 8-10 hours of schoolwork daily so that's why I'm slow right now. It wasn't like this when class started but DAMN THEY PICKED UP THE PACE JESUS

Nobody's really asked why but yeh, just letting you know why I'm ded. I just did fifteen hours of history in one sitting. I'm taking a bubble bath tonight.

Goodbye world I submit myself to thy textbooks.
I thought it'd be nice to have a clean, updated commissions page for everything on its own, with slots so that I don't overwhelm myself with work, aha.

I do commissions in the form of art and music. You can commission me for any digital piece of artwork or you can commission me for a soundtrack or original song (with whatever kind of vocal; UTAU, VOCALOID AVANNA, or a human singer).

:new:
I now do requests for singing (if it's your own original song & for non-profit; for-profit will be listed below) and I now do commissions for rearrangements!

I prefer cash, but as I know a lot of people, like me, can't really spend much money online, I also do point commissions, but they're more limited. I'll say the points first, since I'm assuming I'll get more than actual money.

MY COMMISSIONS STAY CLOSED UNTIL EVERY SLOT IS FINISHED. In other words, when slots get full, commissions closed and stay that way until I finish EVERYTHING.


Also, you MUST send an up-front payment of 1/4 the full commission at first (you will be refunded if I do not finish your commission.)


Please read thoroughly on the section you want to commission before commissioning, as I do not want to repeat myself.


Art Commissions - Points


My prices are as follows**:
Full body + Background + Colored/Shaded = 1000 Points (I'm basing it off real money, here; this is about $12.50)
Full body + Background + Colored = 800 Points
Full body + Background + Outlined = 700 Points
Full body + Colored/Shaded = 600 Points
Full body + Colored = 500 Points
Full body + Outlined = 400 Points
Full body + Sketch = 200 Points
**Waist is subtracted from the cost of a Full body commission by 50 points, bust by 100, and head by 150. Prices also fluctuate depending on difficulty/canvas size. Also, my realism costs an extra 400 points (only applies to colored/shaded; you can't order realism with anything else, it'll look too weird).

I will draw all of the following but not limited to...

  • People (of all ages, sizes, and genders)
  • "Mature" content EXCEPT sexual content. (Nudity in an artistic sense is allowed, as is gore/etc.)
  • Animals... (Please don't commission me to, though, I'd hate to let you down. I'm not very good at it)
  • UTAUs/OCs
  • VOCALOIDs

I won't draw all of the following but not limited to...

  • Sexual content
  • Furries (not because I am against them, but because I don't think I could pull off the anatomy properly. OTL;; sorry)
  • Promotion of crime

To commission me...

You need to tell me what you want me to draw and, if you prefer me to draw in realism, to tell me their physical features if a previous drawing doesn't show it very well. This includes what facial shape they have, what kind of nose, lips, ears, mouth, body type, etc. That's all I'll need, but if you'd like, you may also give me an idea for a pose or activity the person you'd like me to draw is doing.

Music Commissions - Points


Because I prefer writing music to art, my prices are actually cheaper, despite it being better than my art (in my opinion).
My prices are as follows**:
1:00 of score - 300 Points
1:30 of score - 325 Points
2:00 of score - 350 Points
2:30 of score - 375 Points
3:00 of score - 400 Points
3:30 of score - 425 Points
4:00 of score or higher - 450 Points (sometimes higher, but depends on composition)

**I give discounts for:
UTAU Voicebank Releases - -50-100 Points (depending on the voicebank; if it's a language you speak fluently that isn't Japanese, it's -100 (since there are more tutorials on Japanese-language voicebanks); if it's one you don't speak fluently but are releasing a bank for it's -50)
Original Soundtracks (for games/etc.) - -100 Points
Fun-to-use banks (if I just enjoy using them) - ranges

I will write about...

Romance, sadness, death, happiness, life, day-to-day things, the list goes on and on...
:new: I now also do rearrangements for exactly the same price!

But I will not write about...

Sex, crimes, etc. (essentially the same as art). Sometimes I may decline writing a "cute" song because I don't particularly like trying to make it "cute" when I go for "gorgeous."

To commission me...
All you NEED to do is tell me whether you're asking for me to write a song or soundtrack. If you are asking for something using an UTAU, give me a sample of the UTAU and the link(s) to their voicebank(s). If you are asking for a soundtrack, give me a short summary of the game/show/movie you are producing and what kind of mood you would like to the soundtrack. If you are asking for a song without either of these methods, tell me whether you want something I sing myself, something you sing yourself, or another singer will be involved, and if another singer is involved, please have them come in contact with me shortly after I confirm your commission.

Singing Requests + Commissions


My singing is free, unless it's for profit. See the commercial use policy for my prices.

I will sing about...

Romance, sadness, death, happiness, life, day-to-day things, the list goes on and on...

But I will not sing about...

Sex, crimes, racism, etc. unless it's for a character

My comfortable range is F#3~A5, but with enough warmups it can stretch from F3~D6 (though I don't recommend doing this).

To request or commission me...
You must be asking me to sing an original song; I won't do covers unless I pick out the song myself. If you have an original song you'd like me to sing, you can send me a note with the instrumental and the vocal melody (you can just have a piano placeholder or something). If I like it, I'll put you on the slot list!

Commercial Use Policy


I charge extra for commercial use. There are two payment methods I accept for compensation of the profits you get from my work:
  1. Pay a percentage of the profits: For my art, in addition to the base price, you give as low as 5% of the profits. You may give me more if you want (I'd love you very dearly) but 5% is the minimum. For my music, you give 10% of the profits plus the base price, 10% being the minimum. For my singing, it depends, but 5% is the minimum.
  2. Pay up-front. My up-front prices are more expensive, especially with my music. For art, I add $50 to the base price for art and $60 to the base price for my music. My singing up-front prices are $20.
By using my work commercially, you agree:
  • You are responsible for the work you have commissioned me. I give up my rights to the work as long as I am being paid proper compensation.
  • You will pay me via PayPal, not points.
  • You do not hinder public opinion nor promote illegal activities with my work.
  • Though you own the rights to my work, you still MUST credit me.
If you agree to my commercial use policy, you can use my work for anything from using it in an advertisement to using it in a local restaurant. If you violate this policy I regain rights to my works, though you may keep it for personal/non-profit use only.

Hi there! I just found you via the VAA Forums, via weird crossroads I came across your musical project, which had some parallels with one of my own project, in fact a few similarities in names and the addition of conlang luff adds to it, now I'm convinced you're my spirit animal!
I'm listening to your Kyerav album now, and i'm loving it, though I dont usually like the vocaloid voices, i absolutely love the music style *-* Even a friend of mine whom I showed your Bandcamp page now says she wants a themesong from you hehe. By the way, did you by chance get Inspired by Ar Tonelico for some of the Lyrics? Some of it looks familiar and some of it doesnt. My friend is all over AT and we both drool over conlangs in general.
Anyway, wanted to drop off to say your work is awesome! I hope I'll be able to catch a commission on music from you in the future for a planned audiodrama project.
Stay awesome!

Hello there!! I'm glad you like my style!! I'm trying to gradually move away from Vocaloid but as a tool for an amateur singer-songwriter it works wonders and I'm normally not happy enough with my own vocals haha

I do listen to a lot of AT songs but my inspiration gets drawn from a variety of places, most of which is actually the musical itself because i mean that's like 7 years of my life whoops. The conlangs itself came from the musical, because the majority of it takes place on a different planet, so I was like, eh, different planet, different languages, makes sense.

I'd love to take a commission from both of you if you get the chance!

(Also, your art is awesome too, watched you back)

Normally I only write stuff from scratch but since I love harmonies hhh maybe

Is it for a cover or original, first of all? Because I'm not the best at hearing harmonies, it takes a lot of effort ff
