CAPRIZI by oxboxer CAPRIZI by oxboxer
It's Paex and Lynn's fault. I BLAME THEM!

Anyhow THESE ARE CAPRIZI (Capra/goat + caprese salad, my favorite Italian food). They are omnivorous goaty things that take on visual traits of their favorite food. In the past this would help them blend in with prey they were hunting, but they much prefer cooking now.

THIS IS A CLOSED SPECIES. No OCs, and I am not making customs at this time. The three you see above are what exist right now.

They are also ALL AVAILABLE SEPERATELY FOR PURCHASE. $35 flat fee. Paypal only. Note me if interested!

Anyhow. As for these three:

LUCKY
(Lucky Charms)
Male - sweet

TAKEN!
Owner: *PhloxeButt

BENEDICT
(eggs benedict)
Female - savory

SHAKSHUKA
(shakshuka, an African/Middle-Eastern tomato stew with poached eggs in it)
Female - savory

TAKEN!
Owner: ~Mootdam

This is the first time I've ever offered adopts, so I'm interested to see how this goes~

"Caprizi"sounds an awful lot like "Kaprizy," which is Russian for "whims." Just FYI

psst jemma you forgot to set a starting price for their auctions! I assume it's an auction because you said "bidding" and that the $35 is an autobuy, but if it's not an auction and just the $35 fee then I must have interpreted it wrong, sorry.

I had them as an auction initially and then quickly realized I did not want to deal with an auction. They are now just for sale. I guess something slipped by after I edited it. Thanks for the catch!

Okay I'm confused. What exactly is an adoptable? You can take it and draw the creature now without people barking up your tree about idea theft? You can alter it? I know you can RP with it, but that's about all I know. They're beautiful, yes, but why are people willing to pay so much for these things when there doesn't seem to be a lot you can do with them?

They're characters that you buy.
It's basically selling the sole rights to a design. You can draw them, alter the design a bit in most cases, and do pretty much whatever, except most people don't like it when the designs are resold. 
People make different kinds of creatures and make adoptables for them, so they can sell the designs and have a limited amount of people with characters that are the same "species," so not everyone has one and they can keep track of any design theft(ie. someone claiming the creation of the creature).
It's kind of a strange thing, yes, and I do agree that the designs shown above aren't exactly worth nearly 40 dollars to most, but some people with buy them so people keep selling them.
It's kind of a thing just for fun, and for people that don't really know how to design great characters on their own to draw, they can buy ones instead, so it helps out a lot of people.
And if you really want to draw a character and have it be your own instead of having to constantly state who the owner is, then why not buy it?

~Lusterdust & ~Aerozerx : Just a correction, when you buy an adoptable you are not buying the sole legal rights to the design. You are buying the artist's permission to be able to use the character for personal and non-profit causes only, and to be able to claim imaginary/hypothetical ownership of the character for personal or storytelling purposes.

Just wanted to clear that up in case we had any onlookers that were thinking they could buy the legal rights to a character for a couple bucks....

Ah, I see! I figured that :D It may be a stupid question, but does any user have true *legal* rights to their character (assuming it's not a fan character or character that belongs in a preexisting universe, etc.)? Or does it have to be officially copyrighted? Because I see a rampant amount of art theft on this site and it seems to go unpunished a lot of the time :/

Don't worry, it's not a dumb question! Adopts are a grey-area topic. 

Every original creation is automatically granted copyright by law and the creator keeps all legal rights to do whatever they choose with the character, even if it's been adopted. But no, by adopting the character the user (adopter) does not gain any true legal rights whatsoever, UNLESS the creator and the user have reached a specific agreement in writing, and the copyrights could be officially transferred via a Copyright Transfer Agreement.

Even though there is a lot of "art theft" on dA it can't really be considered serious copyright infringement, as simply posting an image which isn't your own is against dA's rules, but not necessarily the law. It can be frustrating, and is more up to the community to report it, but it only gets really serious when someone is making false copyright claims and attempts to make monetary gain or register a trademark for something they do not own the copyright to.

Yes, the legal rights to any image automatically defaults to the original artist. There are many problems with art theft, however, because it's just fraught with issues. Taking someone to court is costly, to name one.

Parts of the issue are discussed in a lot more depth over here if you're interested: artists-beware.livejournal.com… (there are also countless other entries in that community that end up discussing the topic).

Nah that's not really what I meant, of course you can't truly buy the legal rights by throwing over some money.

Oo, thank you for a detailed description :D

Why not buy it? Well, if I were going to spend 40 bucks I'd ask the artist to teach me tricks or even mentor on how to draw/cartoon. And I would flipping love to do this because Oxboxer is among my favorite artists. I guess if you REALLY love some sort of critter you could buy it, though, of course. I think it's a bit odd, but to each there own. If people get joy out of it, more power to em ^^

i get what lusterdust meant... the artist could chat with you just ONCE for like 5-10 minutes and show you something you would like to know how to draw for $20-40. youre not going to tell me 10 min of your time is too much to ask if youre getting 40 bucks in exchange, are you. are you

Not at all, but only so much can be learned in 10 minutes. Especially if the other party has weak artistic skills and lacks knowledge of basic art fundamentals.

If you're talking about starter stuff like head construction then hundreds of tutorials already exist for it, anyway. If you're talking about something more complicated like value or anatomy it's going to take a lot longer to learn. And hundreds of tutorials exist for that stuff, too.

Idk, it all just seems kind of a pointless thing to argue when you can find basically everything reiterated a hundred different ways already.

If you just want to chat, however, I can see the merit in being able to ask a few general questions. How did you get into the industry, etc. But it potentially also opens the floodgates for rabid fans to purchase designs just so they can talk directly to the artist. Obviously this could lead to uncomfortable/awkward questions.

Well of course not a detailed lesson, just a few neat tricks and tips, perhaps on a specific part of anatomy (I can't grasp back legs or snouts).

Aerozerx Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Yeah I suppose.
But for some people it's kind of like "ooh, a one-of-a-kind-design, I MUST HAVE IT!"
And some people want the ability to claim they bought art/designs from a famous artist, I suppose, so they'll do anything for it, especially if they enjoy the design as well.

It's kind of like this situation here: www.deviantart.com/art/Sushi-D…
