Back to commissions



All of the following rules are the most essential, bare-minimum rules, and if broken, will result in an instant blacklist.

  • ◈ Please credit me initially if reposting the design, and don't remove my credit off of I'm Nor at Toyhouse, Synoicus at Twitter, tumblr, and deviantart (although twitter and DA are mostly here just for credit purposes). I'm not on any other site art-wise, so if you see me there, that's not me. /:^)
  • ◈ Please, do not sell the design for a higher price than what you had purchased for it. You're free to add the cost of the art you've made and/or commissioned onto the resale cost! With that said, please do not mass produce your own art only intending to resell the character at a high price. (Making a lot of art because you genuinely like the character is fine! It's only an issue if your only intention is to increase the design's worth.)
  • ◈ If my design has my logo on it (usually on the side, like a signature), please do not remove my logo, be it by cropping, blurring, erasing, etc.
  • ◈ If you've obtained the design for free from me (trade, gift, raffle, draw to adopt, etc.) they may not be sold for any real monetary value, but they can be traded and gifted! (There are some exceptions, being if you genuinely need the money for an emergency situation. Please discuss this with me before proceeding, though.)
  • ◈ As stated in my commission half of the TOS, none of my art is available to be tokenized/turned into an NFT/placed into a generative program's databank/etc. If you do this, you will be both blocked and blacklisted, and possibly, warned about publicly as most artists have a no NFT rule regarding their art as well.
  • ◈ If you sell the character on a site I am not on, please link my TOS! And if the character already has a toyhouse, please notify me before deleting their profile, I use toyhouse as a personal masterlist.
  • ◈ Copying and colourpicking my designs to create your own designs, or selling my designs without any authority to sell them is not allowed. I'm completely fine with inspiration, but 1 to 1 copies or copies that are over 85% similar, especially to make a profit are a no.


  • ◈ I'll need an email to invoice you with- I can either ask for one via Paypal, or Square.
  • ◈ Please pay within 24 hours (for pre-made designs). I am willing to extend the time if you've communicated clearly why you could not or beforehand, but otherwise, the design will be put back on for sale/trade/etc. I may not make the 24 hour limit myself (apologies if I miss it myself!); you are fully allowed any hours that I am absent too to pay without an explanation.
  • ◈ Trades involving art (with certain exceptions) must be done within a (relatively) timely manner- I'm very much willing to wait! But if it's taken you over six months without good explanation alongside other factors, the design will be put back up for trade.
  • ◈ Please do not hide bids/offers. I'd prefer if you just stated 'sorry, I have to back out' or something along the lines - things happen!


These rules are all just to provide clarity on what can be done/what cannot be done with my designs- I know it's a little bit long, but it's here to make things clearer (not everything here will be relevant to your situation). If you're looking for something in specific, try Ctrl + F to find what you're seeking.

  • Q: Can I change the design?
    Please feel free to change the design however you like! However, if you're making extremely drastic changes (large-scale edits, or completely new forms and/or lineart), you cannot edit my original art - please draw these changes yourself. Hueshifts and smaller edits are perfectly ok with the original art!
    Additionally, even if the edit is drastic, please keep the two designs together and credit assigned to me for the original when selling/trading them.
  • Q: Can I co-own a design of yours?
    Co-owning is allowed, but will not be officially recorded by me, and will be managed by the people involved. I will not solve nor manage disputes.
  • Can I make rules for a design of yours? (eg; "sell only to me, you can only sell once you've made 8 pieces of art", etc.)
    Please don't add on any of your own rules (this includes regarding co-owning, payment, and/or trading) onto my designs that don't exist on this TOS. You can ask someone to ping you if they're selling/trading and smaller rules akin to that, but otherwise, no other rules can be added on by you.
  • Q: Can I make a species based off of your design?
    Please ask me before making a species of my design, especially a closed (and for profit) species. I'd rather have you make an open species, but regardless of either, please ask me first, and if I give you permission, please credit me somewhere for the original concept - thanks!
  • Q: Can I split the design?
    You may split the character into alternate forms; for example, you are allowed to create "Nor" and "Anti-Nor" and treat them as if they were separate characters, or make a humanoid form for a creature design. However, if sold or traded, the spin-off design must be sold/traded along with the original design. You may also assign additional design credit to yourself, but credit must primarily be assigned to me. Any extra art on these other forms is able to be added onto the base resale price, though!
  • Q: May I make sibling designs/designs related to your design?
    You are completely free to create characters that bear some likeness to them (siblings, relatives, etc), but they cannot be clones of the original design, and the design must be approved by me if it's very similar (more than 85%) to the original design. However, you are allowed to sell/trade these designs as you have designed them, and are allowed to give yourself credit for them - they're also not bound to my TOS.
  • Q: Can your designs be used as breedable designs?
    Please, do not use my designs as "breedables" (designs used solely to make more designs to sell based off of the original design). Like above, you're free to make children/siblings/etc, but not for the sole intention of profit.
  • May I make merchandise of the design/may I use your designs commercially?
    Commercial use in the small/independent sense (eg; comics, personal/small scale merch, games, novels, charms, prints, etc) is completely ok (in fact, please show me! I think that's really neat!) Mass-produced/corporate commercial use (eg; mass-produced larger items such as plushes, t-shirts, funded campaigns, etc) will have to be discussed.


  • My blacklist is private, and your information nor identity will never be publicly posted online unless the circumstances are dire (eg; severe harassment, major monetary fraud, etc). If you've offered on a design of mine while blacklisted, you may not be responded to.
  • If you ask why you've been blacklisted (civilly, and by DMs), I'll DM you back with why, and possibly photo evidence if you request it (if I can provide it - if evidence has been deleted/cannot be obtained, I'll do my best to explain, but I can't do more than that) and explain anything that you wish need be explained. Any designs of mine that you own will never be revoked, even if blacklisted, and will remain in your possession unless you haven't paid for them. Please be civil, I am completely open to discussing your blacklist status and I fully understand that people make mistakes.

At the end of the day, please be fair to everyone involved with character trading/selling/etc- including me! Thanks so much for reading this all (or at least looking), I appreciate it lots!
