[IC] Ink Blossom Deskmats
« on: Tue, 16 February 2021, 16:25:51 »
ANNOUNCEMENT
I was just made aware by member of the community that running "designs" based off of stock images undermines the work of many here.
I just got into this hobby two weeks ago and I was really unaware.
I just wanted to make something cool that suited my tastes.
However, using stock images was a shortcut I should not have taken, because as I now can see, the community greatly values originality.
I've received a strangely overwhelming response on the IC but I am going to put this project on pause.
At this point, there are three things I could do: axe the project, continue it, or substitute two stock vectors for original art.
I am very much leaning toward axing it but I think it may be beneficial to discuss this matter.
Thank you for your time and I sincerely apologize.
Ink Blossom Deskmats
Hello! This is an interest check for "Ink Blossom" series deskmats.
This is my first design and my first IC. I recently got into designing a series of plum blossom inspired deskmats.
I have the appropriate licenses for the assets I used in its design.
The designs feature a plum blossom framed by a Chinese border with styled clouds floating beside it.
On every design except the minimal ones, the background is filled with a simple cloud pattern.
Thank you for your interest!

Both the monos and minimals are killer. Getting at least one for myself and gifting another.

I found the source on adobe stock and I paid for the 80 dollar extended license. It says I can "Create merchandise or products for resale or distribution where the main value of the product is associated with the asset itself, such as a coffee mug or t-shirt."  :-X
