justinwwoo asked: This is not a question, but I say draw whatever you want to draw! I don't think there's anything inherently wrong with fan art, either. 90% of the things I draw is fan art. Sometimes I worry that "serious artists" would frown upon it, but it's really fun and often leads to original stuff, too! Anyways, it's always great when your drawings pop up on my dashboard. ;)
Exactly! What people forget sometimes is that art is something personal, what works for you maybe won’t work for me. There is no right path for doing good art (well, maybe except always be practing).
I used to avoid fanart because of people telling me that this kind of drawings wouldn’t help me develop my own work, but than I started to think about it and… What about Scott C. and Dan Hipp? Both amazing, and incredibly original artists that are always working on fanart! So I guess it can’t be all that wrong.
