Will This Approve Support Thread

Hi there! This is a support thread for checking whether your item will have any issues when submitting before you get to the completed stage of your works. This support thread is for CA Mod Team responses to CA creators.

Don't forget to check out the Rules and Custom Apparel guidelines in-depth on the Custom Apparel Guide before posting to this thread.

You can ask questions about:

  • Sketches and concepts you think might toe the line of the rules
  • Pushes boundaries
  • Double checking, as you cannot see a rule that covers your idea
  • Asking for clarification on a rule
  • Checking whether your item resembles copyrighted material too closely

When submitting an item that is inspired by copyrighted material, please add the sources to your query so that I may compare the materials and let you know the Key Features that would make an item liable for copyright. There are no warnings, judgements or account penalties for asking for advice on custom apparel inspired by copyrighted material.

If you need support on an item already submitted, rejected or reworked, you can request support in the CA Support Thread.

This is not a thread to argue or question a Custom Support ruling or answer. For any issues with rules or handling of a topic, don't hesitate to get in touch with the Support Team who will forward this on for a Dev to review.

Hello! I was wondering if it would be alright to make custom apparel based on the game OFF by Mortis Ghost? While the game is copywritten by Mortis Ghost, I have received explicit permission in the past to use the designs (drawn in my style) in games like Flightrising for skins (which I can provide)

okayokay so

HYPOTHETICALLY here, exactly HOW off-brand would SOMEONE (not me obvi) need to make Jack Frost's hoodie to let it pass the copyright question

screenshotted this boy out of discord so no one would have to see him full size

like I was thinking, THEORETICALLY of course, that it's a fairly generic design, but to be safe, tone shifting it to be a bit more teal, and stylizing the frost a bit differently might be enough, but since this is still very early in the conception, I felt like it'd be best to just ask before I, or anyone else (not me), might commit to making this item. :|

Hi Quiche! Thanks for everything you do! This might be beyond the scope of this threads purpose and I apologize in advance if it is. I have a few rule clarification questions not directly related to approvals:

1) For rule 1.12: Does Lorwolf copyright unique designs submitted by players?

I wanted to clear up if original designs created by artists are automatically copyrighted by Lorwolf, or if it’s just the PSD/PNG file made for Lorwolf. For example, if I were to design a unique mythical animal, would I be able to redraw that animal later for my portfolio, game, dnd campaign or story as long as it isn’t the exact pose and PSD file made for Lorwolf? I was unclear if the below rule is meant for the PSD file in general or the design itself. I suspect artists who want to include their own custom original species and what not would be interested as well as they'd need to add the disclaimer to their creature designs going forwards if it's approved on LW.

(1.12. If you share your custom artwork outside of Lorwolf’s services, you must include a disclaimer that this is for Lorwolf.com.)

2) Can artists charge USD/etc for the design/process of creating a Custom Item?

Not to be confused with charging cash for the item once in game. Flightrising allows this but I wasn’t sure if you folks did or not. It’d be amazing to offer commissions for customs to be designed.

(For reference, I have included Flightrising’s stance on this in case it was helpful:

“You can commission an artist with real money to create a skin design, that is totally fine. The commission fee should be the only real world money that gets exchanged. After that, it's up to you and the artist who will submit it to the skin queue and ultimately have control of reprints. If you submit the skin to the queue and it's approved under your user ID, then any future reprints need to be ordered by you. If the artist submits it under their user ID, then they will have ownership over reprints.

Once a design has been submitted and is an in-game item on the site, no real money should be used in exchanges between users. Let me know if you have any questions.”
)

To add onto LaughingFools question above: if I were to make my OC (a cowdragon) into a fun little CA companion, would copyright for my OC then be eith you?

Hello! I am here to see if the changes I made to the armor are in the clear! If not I'd love to see what else you would like me to change (I also hope this isn't over 80%)

Hello! I’m wondering if these two (separate) apparel pieces would individually be allowed since they cover no more than 80% of the wolf. Thank you so much for all of your hard work, and please don’t rush to respond to me if you’re busy!

For the first, the apparel is the white color.


For the second, the apparel is the white color and the original shadow and lineart layers copied and pasted above it. I can erase the shadow and lineart of the non-white areas if needed to reduce coverage, though if I can avoid that, it would be preferred!

@quiche

hey and thank you for making this thread it's super helpful c:

I'm wondering about this set I'm working on! I know that having different items in one set that has the same theme is something currently accepted, I was just wondering if this type of thing would be pushing that or still acceptable?

It would be a different 80s trackjacket for each pose, with the same general shape and block/design - the colors would vary.

Examples:

Thanks for taking a look!

Edit: I have already submitted the piece. I'll just wait until it gets checked in the queue since it's too late to change it now.

I have this piece here that I’m not too sure if it’s over 80% or pushing the boundaries too much. I wanted to check before drawing it onto different bases and submitting it because it’s a lot of work to replicate. It’s meant to represent African painted dog markings. All the gray is the base, only the white and black are part of the piece, along with pieces of the outline and shadows.

Commenting to follow this as I am very curious about that Copyright question and whether we lose rights to our designs.
