"Can I draw your character??"

So, recently I've gotten a good deal of requests from people on whether it's okay to draw this character or that, in this thing or that. So I want to lay down exactly my philosophy on this.

Draw what you want. I'm serious. Even if it's something you know I won't like. Even if it's something clearly against my own personal rules and statutes, if you just really wanna draw something involving my characters, go right the fuck ahead and have fun.

If this seems weird to you, it shouldn't. In fact, it's the only credible conclusion. Why? Because I never asked Yuji Naka permission to draw Tails getting ass-hammered by Rouge the Bat. I didn't write a letter to Noako Takeuchi asking if I could please illustrate Sailor Jupiter with enormous boobs because she's pretty and makes me feel weird when her skirt flips around. I never have, and never will apologize to Toei for portraying Renamon as a thunder-thighed tsundere butt slut.

So in turn, if I then demanded that you ask me nicely before you draw (or commission, for that matter) something featuring my characters in a way that I didn't agree with, that would make me a complete and total raging hypocrite. And I won't do that.

All that said, I'm not stupid; I get it. It's a courtesy thing. Most people aren't asking because they don't want their flights of fancy to anger the creator, but rather because they want to share art, get reactions and generally positively participate in this whole art-community thing. Which brings me to my rules and guidelines:

Nori-verse Characters
These are generally the loosely related characters who exist in the same world together: Nori, Alex, Sunni, Noriko- anybody who works at the Prostitutes' Guild, anyone involved in furthering or thwarting Nori's evil schemes, that whole shebang. These characters are completely fine for basically whatever. It's preferred to try and keep them something like in-character, but for the most part they can go in whatever combinations you like and it's totally cool. I mean, especially for the Guild ones; you wanna draw your character tying up and banging the hell out of Noriko? That's not just okay, it's completely plausible.

Dr. Gwen
She gets her own section because her rules are just so fickle. She's not okay for vaginal penetration, of any kind. Anal penetration is something she would do with very close, trusted friends in a controlled environment. Other, external acts are more amenable, but her approach to everything is primarily curiosity, usually of the Scientific kind.

Partners Characters (For reference, these would be any characters that appear under the "World of Partners" pool, or obviously, in the stories)
I love Partners fan art the most of all, and believe it or not, you can even draw porn of them! It's just that you've really gotta do your homework for these guys, because their relationship dynamics aren't the modern reality of "tightly controlled, nonsensical legacy of monogamy" or the furry norm of "unsettlingly indifferent free-for-all." Instead, it has to do with their romantic inclinations as well as the relationships they nurture with very close friends in their respective 'packs.' And that's before OC even comes into the picture. It would be very hard to totally grasp without reading the story, but then again, that is why I made the Wiki! Yeah, I know, it's still unfinished, but Rome wasn't converted into a go-kart and mini-golf course in a day.
All that said, I tend to be less concerned the further away you go from the main cast. Parents, don't care as much. Teachers, go nuts. One-shot characters that only existed in like two scenes, have a ball.

So that's basically it. Those are my 'rules' for anything you'd like to share with me. If it falls outside of this, go ahead and draw it, but... don't worry about showing me. I won't report it or anything, just, enjoy.

I share your view on this too

quite frankly, I don't care if someone wants to draw me or my characters in something gory or shitty (literally) as I consider it still a compliment that they took time out of their lives to draw something involving me

though of course I do like it more if it's to my liking and in character

it is something that like you and lamia said, just dont care its nice to see people drawing you, but some times when you don't get permission from some artist they like to bitch moan and complain that you didn't ask and are just trying to steal there character, and some people like to say you are cause you didnt ask permission to draw it, so its just a safety measure is all. a bit of curtsy as you might say

For a moment, I thought you were asking to draw everybody's characters for free, and I was excitedelighted! XD

Oh well, a squirrel can dream. :P

You won't see anything from me, as I can't draw for shit.

=P Even if someone were to draw a certain girl of yours getting over her penetration fears~?

The point isn't that I'd like it; the point is that I wouldn't stop it. Like I didn't when somebody drew that recently.
PlaneshifterLair
5 years, 4 months ago
.. ahhh, a totally different point. Personally I wouldn't use someone's else char in something they wouldn't like, except 'public' characters, like the ones on series XD I'm weird like that.
Norithics

You're not weird like that. This is the standard practically everyone uses. It's just also a little hypocritical.

You are truly a dictator with harsh, harsh rules. I am being crushed under the weight of your ass your... uh, harshness. D:

Not really.

Been almost a couple of years since I've wanted to give Nori a try, However the fear of ruining the character, not designing him properly, Making the owner of the character angry (yes, it has happened) and some other doubts always kept me from trying
Perhaps after this it could be possible after all... but we will see, it is nice to see people who dont take characters in such a serious way

This makes my job a lot easier =3 Imagine me asking 'is it okay'? for every god damn Partners character....

On a side note, I'm going to touch up on Natalie soon.  I learned a couple techniques and they only work with a certain way, so her old body isn't as... friendly to it.  This should also let those damn under stickers actually STICK DAMMIT.

Okay ^w^ it would be do some funny drawings with Nori in the future =3

I'm the same way. If someone wants to draw my characters, I'd rather they didn't even bother asking me and just do it! Even if it's something I utterly detest, like diapers.

And I'd still want to see the results anyway.

I wish I could put in a request, but sadly I can't give you the Cashola for ya :'( If I had money, I SWEAR I would ask for one.

lol i wondered when something like this would pop out of the Norithics gumball machine. Ive got to make something around these lines in case someone wants to draw my characters of the nocturne gate or panda badger.

Good to know for future reference. If I weren't so tired, I would start working on something.

If you want to draw mine, you can. But maybe it could be in a funny situation though.

Actually been working on a scenery-porn style picture based on the final confrontation with Osoth for your wiki, but I have been busy with work and haven't had time to finish it. Hopefully will be done before September.

I am the same, I only ask to be informed if you do use any of my chars simply because I want to see how they turn out :P

My only issue is when people draw fanart of my characters in order to attempt to strong-arm me into doing an art trade with them. >.>;  (Not referring to anyone here, of course.)

Hah! I remember people trying to do that to me. Oh, their dejected faces.

I am the same way. ^_^ All I ask is you let people know who you got it from. ^_^

I have no talent at drawing but would love to do a story with your characters not planning anything perverse would that be alright

I share some of the same reasoning, especially the hypocrisy avoidance.

Asking Yuji Naka if you can draw Tails getting ass-hammered by Rouge.

That's like asking Reggie Fils-Aime if I cound draw Princess Toadstool sucking an army of Toads into her black-hole vagina.

Probably something priceless you'd want to record the reaction to.

Though still, would Yugi Naka be considered a creator of Sonic if all he did was the programming? I mean a lot of what you think of Sonic is how he handles.

Ah well.

I know I've been wanting to draw that tanuki girl since I've been on a hermaphrodite kick, but I've also been on an anthro diet. XD

*scratches head...* this isn't so much a 'can I do something involving them?' question as it is a clarification... where do Spark and Glint fall with you? are they Nori-verse specifically? because I've always found them adorable, and wouldn't mind writing something cute and fluffy about the pair... and Nori, too, of course...

Interesting...then I think the monsters of Partners could use a better rendition of them.  As well as some of the other more monster-like individuals, too.  I have a friend that has a rather...unique style that I think would work nicely with the image of trying to inspire 'fear' in others.  Though he hasn't read the story, and we haven't spoken in awhile.  ^^;;;  Still, perhaps I can make something come of it...we'll see of course!  I'll try and get back in touch with you if the ball does get rolling though, since they are your creations.  I want to see them created as you imagine them in your head properly after all!

I know I was asking you info on the guild before. I'm curious its extensions and rules. As my own character PTs as a gigilo in the city of BonBon. I know its technically different worlds settings, but if ever I was to be involved, do fan art, or interact with your characters, I'm curious where I'd fall under the guild.

Which then makes me wonder, have you ever did that as a way of commissions? Offering people openings to "Join the Guild?"
