You are NOT allowed to:
♦ trace/copy/edit/heavily reference my art or claim it as your own
♦ repost my art without credit and a link back to my dA
♦ use my art in avatars or decorate your blogs, forums or such with it.
♦ use my art commercially, publish or sell it. I am the only one that has the right to make profit of my work.
♦ have my art tattooed on your body. If there's a specific image you'd like to use for tattooing or you'd like to order a commissioned tattoo design, contact me and we can discuss.
♦ use my original characters in rpg's, forums, edit them, rename them or claim them as your own in any way.

♦ Personal usage is allowed as long as it doesn't infringe copyrights.
♦ Gift/fan art of my characters is always highly appreciated, you don't need to ask for permission to draw them.
♦ Please do not attempt to duplicate my style or mimic my identity. Such things cannot be copyrighted but doing this is still considered highly disrespectful and you'll most likely end up on my blacklist.
♦ If you need more clarification about my policies or you're uncertain whether you can use one of my images in a specific way, always contact me via note or a comment before using it.
♦ I do not tolerate misuse of my artwork and I don't take these things lightly. Actions will be taken if you break these terms.
♦ Those who steal my art, use it to make profit, spread it online without crediting me, trace over it and/or copy my characters, will end up blacklisted and they lose their chance to ever get artwork from me.
If you suspect that someone is misusing my intellectual property, it would be greatly appreciated if you notified me about it.
