Posted by werecatamount - 2 weeks ago


After working so hard for the past 4 years on personal art projects & original characters, I feel I need to stand back from that for a while and make some fan art!


I have always struggled to fit into the art community and individual fandoms because I have trouble talking to people, so maybe creating fan art can connect me to people in the community! I have lots of ideas for illustrations, comics, short & long animations, and character work. I already know that most of them will not come to fruition, but I am hopeful that my own drive to create & any community support I get will help me make it happen!


I have... a lot going on in my life right now and I have been working my tail off to make any kind of money, but when I get to sit down in the evening to draw, everything feels alright. I am dedicated, so let's make this happen!

If you're looking for a boost in fan count, at least, then fan art really seems like the way to go. :) It's cool you actually seem to see it as a fun thing too. I know a lot of artists just don't feel they get enough traction with original work, so they reluctantly move over to that category... if you have fun with it: sounds perfect!

Good luck and Ganbatte!

Yeah! I've just been making personal content for so long, I want to try some different stuff every now and then-- not just to get fans. It's fun! NG seems like it has a lot of original content as well as fan content, and that's something I can appreciate :D

Thanks!

I understand you, as somebody who has been doing a lot of that stuff as well. Go slow and do what you want for yourself, don't feel like you have to cater to anybody.

I've been doing my own thing and people seem to like that, so I guess I'll just keep it up. Thanks for the advice dude!
