Pokemon mini-commissions!

So here’s the deal! I’m opening up a few of these so maybe I can get the new game eventually. They’re 20 dollars (USD) each for a cute colored custom drawing of your favorite Pokemon up to whatever shenanigans you might like (fruit hats are all the rage), or just standing around looking pretty cool, like say breathing fire, or maybe holding a flowerplant. It’s up to you!

If you’re interested, feel free to send me an email at alliebirdseed @ gmail . com! Also, my room mate is doing this too, so you should check her out over at annimate.tumblr.com . Also her art is super cool so you should check it out anyway. Do it!

Thanks : B

These are basically copies of official merchandise (Tales of Friends rubber strap collections released in 2012)

She states that she originally made these “based” on the Tales of Friends rubber straps (but they are literally almost…

Oh snap… i saw these on storenvy and thought they were really cute!
I thought she was the original artist of the official merch because the
style was so similar agsgafdjaf

There’s a lot of controversy over this issue it seems. :O
I do see that her charms are different from the real merch in that
they have food items which is really cute T v T );;; Not to mention,
slight variations in the proportions, etc.

But at the same time, I personally as a buyer wouldn’t feel
comfortable buying products like these now that I know it’s very
heavily based on another artist’s style. I think it’s one thing
to base your charms off of official art, but it’s a different thing
to heavily copy the style of a fanart for a certain series.

Idk about all the legal stuff, but I think it’d be good if the artist
did mention somewhere that her artwork isn’t affiliated with
the official merchandise line.

She already did mention they were based on the Tales of Friends style. I think that makes it obvious enough that she’s not trying to claim them for 100% originality in style, despite drawing and designing them herself. And in no way does she ever claim them to be official merchandise or try to take credit for the style.

I don’t see what the problem here is. Fanart legality issues that everyone  faces and is already aware of aside (the, she was inspired by a style and drew her own inspired version and made charms of it. Where is the problem here? They’re not traced or copied and they’re not being passed off as official merchandise. They just look similar to some official merch (and I’m not talking in a YOU TRACED THIS!! kind of way because I just said that) and now everyone wants to paint her as some con-artist/art thief? Does that mean people should stop making Pinch charms or stop drawing in a certain style? Does it make you uncomfortable when people draw fanart in Sailor Moon style because it looks nice? “but she’s m aking money off of it!! 1” yeah no. Why would you be upset about the style looking similar to something else, when she never stated it was official merchandise or meant to be a knock-off or anything even close to it.  The “price” side of the debate is the dumber part of this argument as most artist’s keychains/charms I’ve seen ARE $10 or so anyway because unlike official merchandise they’re likely not produced at the same mass-production level and take a chunk out of the artist’s own wallet as well.

You even mentioned it yourself that you posted all this only because she got sarcastic with you, when you were the one being rude and basically telling somebody what to do, and what they can and can’t do in your own terms (‘this style is too similar so you NEED to stop’ like come on you literally just tried to force somebody to change in a way YOU want them too and then got mad when they wouldn’t)

I already addressed in my post that she had said they were based off of the official merchandise. Like literally its right in my post -_- and I never said she traced it. I said its heavily copied off of the official merchandise. Have you ever read con rules too? You’re not even allowed to be selling anything that mimics official merch. Its against the rules. And they are EXTREMELY similar in style, and its wrong to sell style-copied merch? Because many people don’t realize that its not true to the artists own style. And many don’t appreciate buying that. Where did I slander coyfish? I never said she traced, I never said she didn’t source the charms, the only thing I said is that she was being rude when confronted about it. And our exchanges weren’t even forcing her to act the way she did. It was literally questions on my end and her clarification on the other??? So please don’t try to start a one sided arguments if you just read coyfish’s post and decided to throw mine over your head -_-

Then what is this warning here for? You write up this whole post for a “warning” against coyfish’s products which in itself would have been fine if you just wanted to tell people they weren’t official, though you also could have sufficed with simply asking her for a clearer disclaimer on the product’s page, which you didn’t. You told her to not make them, which is completely different.

However it doesn’t serve as just a warning at all, as you had to put personal affairs and interactions in a way that puts coyfish in a bad light instead of just saying “hey guys these aren’t official merch and just wanted to let you guys know that because even if I’m unapproving of the style, I can’t control what she does with them.” You put in a crudely testified side-by-side picture and your own opinions to try and sway people into agreeing with you that coyfish is wrong and rude and, if you really feel that way fine, but it does not serve as a proper warning or anything due to its bias. With the kind of attitude presented in your post I’m not sure what kind of responses you were expecting.

We can agree to disagree on coyfish’s straps. It’s your poor handling of this that I have a problem with but you can certainly carry on as you have been, if you want to reply to every quirk that comes your way? Just as you feel so strongly to let others know about your opinions on her and her product, I should be allowed to do the same about it as well along with the flak on her that I’ve seen float around.
