(SU) Gem Adoptables: 1/4 OPEN by MrsDrPepper (SU) Gem Adoptables: 1/4 OPEN by MrsDrPepper
i'm posting this later than i wanted they are OTL

these adopts are paypal only! i use invoices

my rules are as follows:
- resales for $$ are ok as long as it's below or equal to the amount you paid
- with these types, you can change just about anything you like about the design to make it more to your liking
- ^ this includes not only their outfits/looks but their weapons and alignment!
- please don't claim the original art as your work
- i'd also like credit if/when you draw and post the design, at least once

what can you do with an adoptable and why would someone buy it? cause I'm in love with your sphalerite, but Idk why would anyone pay 50$ for a painting that's not a commision? And I never really understood the concept of adoptables... not meaning to diss your drawings, they are wonderful :iconluvluvplz:

no worries, i don't mind trying to explain! there's a lot of reasons to buy adoptables and there's no one right reason, the value and reasons vary from person to person. lately i've noticed the trending reason to buy adoptables is paying an artist you like for a design you love or inspires you. you then get to have a piece of the artist's work AND a piece of their imagination for yourself and you can do what you want with it which has a lot of benefits!

when you've bought an adoptable, you're able to treat it like you would your own character because now, it is. for example, you can simply just draw them if that's all you want to do with them, you can make up stories about them, or include them in your own existing story universes, make comics about them if you want, just anything you would do with an OC of your own. you're able to determine how they would interact with other characters, think of their backstories, decide on what their personalities are like, and expand on their history or little details about them. basically you get a ref of a character and get to develop them yourself! some people like to commission more fav artists to draw their adopted characters too

in my experience, i've adopted designs/characters mostly because they're a fresh concept that i wouldn't have really thought of to begin with, but inspires me a lot and i feel that i really could have fun developing them

adoptables in general aren't everyone's cup of tea because like i said, perceived value varies from person to person. they're somewhat hard to explain too but hopefully you understand where i'm coming from. if it's still not a thing that you could justify spending money on that's totally cool and reasonable, a lot of people feel that way :thumbsup:

Thanks for the reply ^^! I got the ideia \o! I really loved your oc sphalerite, but I don't have the muns ;--;;, so whoever adopts her, I hope they pay respect to her awesome adamantium/wolverine vibe they have going on (pretty cool concept, kudos for that \o!). Thank you again for claryfing things :iconluvluvplz: !

Ooooh man these are amazing!! I would kill a man for Iolite! ;0 I so wish I had the funds to spare. These better get snatched up real quick!! All of them are literally 10/10 and also would be such a weirdo team together and I'm for it.
