I can't find any usage of this character. It's kinda saddening to see it go to waste. This would've been an epic design for someone to use as an exquisite OC... :(

It can only happen if the bid is going to end at a certain time. Then someone comes on and places their bid a few seconds before it ends.

I will never understand this. :/ Maybe someone can explain it to me? I just don't understand why people bid to use a design someone else created. I mean, if I really liked this design enough, I could take it and play around with it a bit to my liking and create my own character using this as an example. And I doubt anyone would ever notice. I don't use dA much mind you, I just browse, so sorry if I sound like an utter noob. Hopefully someone might be able to explain this system to me without getting aggressive? ^^;

I'm not condoning art theft mind you, no no no of course not. I wouldn't actually take the design and use it. But I'm just saying that I probably could, change it up a little and use it for my own character without paying a penny and no one would ever know. I hope people understand what I'm saying.

I mean it's also sort of like a bragging rights thing, you see when people buy designs from artist like kawiku and griffsnuff it's almost like buying from a celebrity, y'know?

Neither will I understand this. This is just my opinion but when people make mass adoptables (they make lineart, and create like 10 different colored OCs with bit modifying the lineart) I don't like it at all. Just when someone thinks about something, doesn't mean that nobody else could do the same thing or something close to it.

Because with adopts it's a bit more then just the design, someone explained this much better then I can. But they said if your buying an adopt then your buying more then the design, your buying the rights to the character and whatever other.....uhh....I don't even know the word...but you understand what I mean right?

That's gonna tell you a heck of a lot more then I can x3

But it's not really a character? I've seen a lot of adoptables which are just the same lineart with different designs. That seems so lazy to me. That's not characterisation, that's just a quick design slapped on a template and then sold. It's always come across as a lazy, cheap way to make money to me and I'm bewildered that people seem to fall for it. Unless they come up with an entire personality, name, background, etc. for this 'character', I don't see how it's worth it at all. I've never seen that done either.

My problem again though just lies in that I could see this design, decide I liked it and used it for myself. Honestly, no one would ever know. And if someone did eventually realise, what's the artist gunna do, sue me? I'm sorry but you can't copyright colours and designs on a cartoon dog.

I can understand art pieces like this one in a sense. The character at least looks unique and it's an interesting piece of artwork. However, as I said, when templates are used, that just blows my mind. It screams of laziness and I have no idea how anyone's fallen for such a scheme. People can spend money on whatever they want, don't get me wrong. I would just love to understand why they're doing it... but I can't.

kawiku doesn't really own the colors BUT the desing here is very complex
and modifing it into your own would be really rude , bc 

1) kawiku prob spent time on this desing for people's liking 
    not for it to be duplicated or "modified" by someone elses use
2) even if you modify the desing it would still be the same char 
    bc even the buyer could modify it .
3) if this was really just a desing on a cartoon dog , tell me would ANYONE 
    here on dA could come up with it , like legit enough that theres around 
    10 of these on dA ?
4) i suggest making your own characters. 
5) this was made by the artist it isn't a base.

Please... read my comments all over again and properly this time. Never anywhere did I say I WOULD steal the design, I said I COULD as an example. I have made my own characters and don't promote art theft. I know this isn't a base but I've seen many that are done on bases, again, I've already explained that in my above comment.

Also it's 'design' not 'desing'. And yes, there are thousands of colourful dogs all over dA, there's bound to be one somewhere that looks similar to this.

you could alter it, but that would probably require to be a DRASTIC alteration?

people buy designs because they CAN, want, are bored.
or because they don't have a huge imaginations to create something unique.

Or just because they fall in love with the character ! and they want to give a home for this character ! ( each artist thinks of a different way)
