Nekoi Species Guide by Kawiku Nekoi Species Guide by Kawiku
An improved and clearer visual guide for the Nekoi Species! There will be a MYO event soon! :D

They are a Closed species, meaning you are not allowed to create one, sorry!

How can you get one? Sometimes I will put them up for auction and adoptions, OTA, etc. Or you could also get one by doing species trades and other kind of trades. I may also accept to make customs for friends, and later I may also open customs commissions.

If you received a Nekoi via trade, could you tweak small details?

I have a question, scratch that; I've got a list. I've never done adoptions like this before.

So what does it matter that these characters are a closed species? You basically just gave the art makers a template to make their own.

Does it have to do with the buying and selling of art?
--If so, shouldn't you legally copyright this species as your own?

Is this for some kind of game?
--If so, which one? And, continuing, if you could make your own character like this, why? Wouldn't it be hard to manage?
--Do these Nekois reproduce?

Would you think the paper-mache-esque style that you do for the auctioned nekois could be easily remade?
--If so, why sell to a media that could reproduce it simply.
--If not, why?

What inspired you to make such cute and peculiar creatures?
--Why distort the japanese word neko to make the breed name?

TL;DR - Why this? x (11)

Thank you for your time.

so if i make a cat/koi fish hybrid that KINDA looks like nekoi but doesn't really then it wouldn't be art theft because it wouldn't be a nekoi, right...?

You will NOT get banned from DeviantART for "art theft". Draw and make as many nekois as you want, as long as it's YOUR art.

Yes, but you said you were going to make a Nekoi, which is her species. Maybe if you said, "I'm gonna make a fishcat!", no one would be upset.

ALL cats are going to look similar lmao Plus that one is completely scaled, has fins, and has a nose. The name Nekoi is not by that
one person or Kawiku, it is "Cat fish" in Japanese. This character is named Nekoi and it was posted 6 years ago. Nekoi by zambicandy

Kawiku did not say catfish are by her, as she has stated what is not a Nekoi She's already stated in a drawing what defines a Nekoi as a Nekoi Not a Nekoi by Kawiku

Dude, That was posted last year and they didn't get 'famous' off of it.
It was posted when they were allowed to make one.
