commissioned work

For commissioned work, the terms are defined in this page instead.
Commission work can only be used by the commissioners themselves. I kindly ask you not to repost and/or use them unless you ask for their permissions and they explicitly say it's fine to do so.

Basically, it aligns with Creative Commons - Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivatives 4.0 International (CC BY-NC-ND 4.0), which means:

  1. Share - You are free to copy and redistribute the material, as long as you fulfill the requirements on point number 2, 3 and 4.
  2. Attribution - There has to be a visible and clear credit to me, in the form of my account username (Konayachi) or my website (https://konayachi.com) - whichever makes most sense, at a glance.
  3. Non-Commercial - You must not use the material for commercial purpose. However, you are free to contact me for licensing fees. Without such licence, I don't allow any commercial use of my art.
  4. NoDerivatives - You must not distribute the material if you modify, transform or build upon, without authorization.

OK to do [✔] NOT OK to do [✘]
  • Create fanwork of Konayachi's paid content.
  • Create video content including the content with frequent added commentary or criticism (transformative work).
  • Repost Konayachi's paid content (even with attribution).
  • Resell Konayachi's paid content.
  • Use Konayachi's paid content to train generative AI tools.

Konayachi's paid content is under All Rights Reserved. However, I explicitly allow the use of my paid content under the conditions above.

In other words, as long as the creation adds something meaningful on top of the paid content, and it's done with good intentions, I'm cool with it!

fanwork of Konayachi's characters & IP

OK to do [✔] NOT OK to do [✘]
  • Create free fanwork (fanart, fanfiction, etc.). Both SFW and NSFW are OK.
  • Use the fanwork you created as samples in your commissions sheets.
  • Contact me for a licence to sell the fanwork you created.
  • Claim Konayachi's IP as yours.
  • Use Konayachi's IP as mascots in your services/products.
  • Sell fanwork without a licence.

I love to see fanwork (fanart, fanfiction, doujin, etc.) of my characters!
All I ask is that if you post it on your pages, you also include the fanwork information attached on the fanwork itself, including the characters' name and the title where they belong, if applicable.
(So more people get to know about how precious they are!)

If you make them, please let me know: either tag me on platforms I'm on (@Konayachi) or send me an e-mail about it, I would love to see your beautiful work!
I also collect them on my fanwork page.

If you'd like to sell the fanwork in forms of merchandises or any derivative work of my characters and/or any of my creations in general with the purpose of gaining profits, please contact me first for discussions of licensing, royalties and guidelines.

Please do not repost fanwork to other sites unless you ask for the creators' permissions and they explicitly say it's fine to do so.
