Custom Character Illustrations

I’ve decided to post a few transmogrifications up for sale in order to help fund our trip to BlizzCon. CLICK HERE to buy! :)

From Fan Art, Gear

  1. I appreciate that it has a CC license on it, but the “No Derivative Works” portion means that I can’t modify it for use in an avatar for a forum, for example. If that’s your intended use, okay, but as it stands, the license limits how I could use my avatar.

    Were you to move to a Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial license, I would have to give you credit still, but I could at least modify it for use in my personal non-commercial works, such as avatars or signature blocks, etc.

    Mind you, we’re talking purely academically right now, because I can’t afford the $35 right now — but possibly in a week or two, and for as much as I absolutely love your artwork and want my character made up like this, without the rights to use it in non-commercial works, I’m hesitant to buy. :)

  2. @Brian – Thanks so much for catching that for me!! I’ve edited the images/listing to reflect the correct license. :)
    I’ve also added 3 additional listings for purchase.

  3. What a precious idea! I adore it. :)

  4. A day late and a dollar short. Will this be available again in the future?

    Love the site, by the way. You really get the creative juices flowing. To bad the only time I can draw is when I am shaving, and it is limited to blood…

    I went to purchase and it said it was sold out! Do you think you will do this again? I would love to get one done from not only myself, but for my cousins toon as well.

    I also would have loved to take part in this for myself and my girlfriend. Is there any chance you’ll consider opening it up again? If so, put me on the list ;-)

  7. Meh, just saw this announcement and I missed it! >.<
    If you decide to do this again, you’ll surely have me as a customer, your art is gorgeous!

    I was wondering if you’ve taken any ganders at copyright/fair use/derivative works and all that mumbo jumbo.

    I’ve considered breaking into the fanart/crafting world and the conflicting information on actual copyright is boggling my mind. I’d like to do something akin to what you’re doing with your art — selling customized character art based on your WoW character — but of course, I don’t draw, I make things out of clay.

    I don’t want to get hit with any cease and desist notices, so I figured I’d look around and try and find other WoW crafters and see if they had any perspective on the “fair use” issue.

    Anyway, thanks in advance for any insight.
