I tend to think of myself as a nice guy. Most of the time, if someone asks if they can use Croc, I generally give them permission, as long as they credit me as being the owner of Chaos Croc. I'm not too picky on things like that, except when/if the subject matter is something I'm not comfortable with.
That being said, I've heard of people taking some of the concepts I've come up with, and commissioning others to draw them. Concepts like the various Eggman outfits I designed, or alternate takes on official characters. I realize that I don't own the rights to anything Sonic related, but I'd still like to be credited to designing them. And, hell, at least let me know you're doing it, so I can see it for myself!
As for the second topic, lately I've been having...issues...with certain people. Obviously, I won't name names here, since I want to keep a semi-professional attitude. However, I will touch on two things here.
One: commission notes. When I do a commission stream, the process goes as follows: send a note saying what you'd like, I reply with a price and the Paypal address, you send the money, I then do the picture. I don't chat through notes, I don't want to have conversations, and I certainly do not want to know how your day was. The stream chat will work just fine for any of those. And, if you want a commission, PLEASE make sure you have the money for it. I won't argue if you're short $2-$3 every now and then, but when it becomes an all-the-time thing, I will speak up.
Two: insulting my friends. I'm not an idiot. I know that, sometimes, we say things that are questionable. Most of the time, we're doing it out of fun. Other times, it's because we're getting annoyed with something. That does NOT give you the right to attack us, threaten us, or make up lies about us. If you want to talk to us to clear up something, fine. Talk. But I have zero tolerance for anyone who threatens my friends. I may act silly in my stream, but I assure you, I'm not a moron. I will know if you've been talking shit, and I will handle it in my own special way.
Well, now that all of that is off my chest, let's get back to some fun. I've got a third page of the Phage Nicole comic in the works, plus a handful of Neo Robia Adventures nearing completion. So fun things ahead!
