"What is FAN ART? Fan art is a statement saying: ' I LOVE YOU.' "

Like to DRAW & SELL art of characters that you don't own on DeviantArt, et al?

Know the IP laws and fan art laws. This is important to DA fan artists.

This was a very interesting video, thanks for posting! I sell fanart in conventions, but since it's a limited amount of prints (unlike DA, which will keep printing for you, I guess!) it's less under the radar probably. XD Even though it's still quite dubious, yes.

"54 minutes? Well, I guess I'll just sit down and watch parts of it or something."
*54 minutes later.....*

But anyway, that's pretty interesting. Didn't fully understand the details the first time around but it gave me a general idea of how it works.

Yeah I always wondered that. Like pairing two unoriginal characters together and then selling mass prints to people for profits. I always really just thought it was kind of...rude. I don't feel the same about personal people wanting to see a loved character in your style and personally pay you to do that. But the way it runs in Comic con, I always found it strange.

Thanks for sharing this video!

I always thought of selling fanart in a limited amount like Mondo and their movie posters.

Come on. This dousn't have anything to do with use. I get paid to draw art of whatever the person wants even if its no my character.

But if you like sell a fan art that is already done or post art that is not yours than thats a deferent story.

DA has a print-selling option before you submit your work. It's standard request. it has everything to do with us. Whether you agree or not is another discussion. :-)
