My characters are not, and will not, be available for use. Ever.
I am on a new account; yes.
I leave this account up for memories and inspiration, like how you wouldn't throw away an old diary. I peruse the art from my other account, looking at how far I've come, being inspired to push myself even more to become a better artist.
Because of that on my new account I tend not to draw cats. I have been rely trying to broaden my horizons a little as far as my artistic ability (all very feline) goes.
HOWEVER, THAT DOES NOT MEAN MY CHARACTERS ARE UP FOR GRABS.
I am very tired of answering this question at this point, so I will do it here, and now, so that hopefully anyone seeing this account will already have their answer before they note me on my new account asking "whose this character? how did they die? If your not using this character may I?'
No you may not.
I end my characters stories as I want them to end.
I put hard work into my characters, and so they are not for free use, even if at this point i am not using them. Even if I never use them again; they are still my hard work. You want to write about a brown tabby cat? I can't stop you. You want to write specifically about a brown tabby cat character of mine, and his/her story and use my art for it as well? Nope.
Not even if you think he/she "deserves a better ending"
Well thanks but I actually put a lot of effort into the ending, so no, that was the perfect ending.... Even if it's not to your taste.
We all understand? Great. Thank you for your time and I apologize to the people not doing this who now have a very frustrated journal in their notifications.
