An (Now Out Of Date) Announcement

The thing is, you can't make money off official characters. If this was a non profit fan drawing then yeah sure. But the reason it needs to be a fully original design is because money is being exchanged.

Most characters look very similar (not racist, just saying, they do) so it's unlikely Julie would get in trouble for it but it's not really worth the risk :)

Is the money being donated to her, or sold to her?
If it's done via donation to her, then she isn't making money... thus not have an issue with drawing said characters.

You can delete this if you want to. Not trying to start an argument, just an opinion was given. Sorry.

Flip is buying a commission from me of y'all's characters.

I don't think your post will start an argument though. :)

Has Disney ever sued anybody for people comissioning their characters? One of Disneys biggest assets is their goodwill they harbor from fans. Going after their fans.... Would kinda put a dent in that goodwill.

That being said, it's julies choice what she will or won't draw for comission and I will respect that choice.
Why do we fall? So that we can learn to pick ourselves back up again.

^ I don't know if they have or not, but I don't want to risk it, because technically, it is illegal.

Wow, Flip, beyond being a great idea, this is just so generous of you! :D

I'd love if Marizzle, my fursona, was added to the drawing.
Here's her Ref:

If you need any info about her design, just contact me. I've never had the opportunity to commission someone, so, thanks a lot for this, Flip & Julie! :kiaraexcited:

Still waiting on a reference for your character, buddy! :)
I'll let the thread ride for two more days, that's a week since it went up which should be plenty of time for anyone currently active to have joined in by then. :]

I'd like to be in on the picture! How generous of you, Flip.

I'm just a cheetah with green eyes. Attaching some refs.

edit: I am also pretty sure KK would want to be in on this. I can fund his, since he doesn't seem to be around to sign up himself.

For KK, his newest ref sheet seems to be this: http://www.furaffinity.net/view/16023542/
But I don't think he'd mind if this was used for reference: http://www.furaffinity.net/view/2624377/ (He does have a fursuit made with that character design, after all)
