What are Adoptables?
Adoptables are character designs that can be adopted or purchased by other deviants. The cost for these can be a set price or are sold in an auction-like manner (highest bid wins).

Marketing Your Adoptables
With the adoptables trend growing larger and larger each day, it can be difficult to sell your adoptables as well as yourself. In this article, I have listed a few tips with ways to market your adoptables.
1. Start Small
It is best to start small if you have never been into the adopables "scene". First and foremost, you should always develop a set of rules for your current or future adoptables. List out what the adopter is and isn't allowed to
Adoptables, Customs What is a Custom Adoptable?Adoptables, Customs by Karijn-s-Basement
It's an adoptable commission that is created using a pre-set lineart or base and the colours/patterns of the adopter's choice.
How do I start making Customs?
Starting is easy enough, you just have to decide that you have the time to do them and be willing to work with another person to produce something together. A custom is not unlike a collaboration after all, you'll just be doing all the "arm-work".
How do I make it easy for myself?
First: Be prepared!
(Only works with programs that support layers)
The fastest way to "make it easy" is to prepare beforehand. This means having some kind of layered base ready to be coloured. It doesn't matter if it's your own lineart or someone elses, but having to do all the colour outlines *every single time* is just boring and time consuming. And if you want to offer lower prices, you can't spend hours on the outlines.
