Who cares if you draw fanart or not? Your knowledge about anatomic and facial structure is AMAZING. Also, making a reallistic drawing out of a comic character and getting it still looking like her/him takes talent!. You're one of the best artists i've ever seen on dA, you know a LOT(and you know you know it ;)). so ignore them and please keep on painting, I melt everytime I see a painting of yours!

Hey Sakimichan,

I really hope you take your time to read this:

My name is Cristian Chihaia, i've been working as an Art Director in the television industry for more than 3 years and as a freelance concept artist for well over 5 years now. I'll try to offer an industry point of view to all this fanart drama thing i see going on in here.

As a freelance artist you will many times face projects you might dislike. However, bills and real life issues come in balance so many times you're forced to take them. I personally have painted things i might not be happy or proud of but those do not shame me as an artist in any way. Heck, i've even done comics for the gay community because yes, i do have a rent to pay.

Many of the people pointing a finger at you are within the 16-17 years old range. The do not face issues nor do they understand the various stages an artist goes through in his personal development. These people's opinions are NOT to be considerated by you, for your own sake.

Example - if Frank Frazetta made a porno comic today, i'd be waiting in a line for hours getting it by now and i'd be typing this from my phone. If one respects an artist [one with a judgement module], one does not stone that artist for x, y or z product.

Regarding fanart - Fanart is a theme that many blame. I myself haven't really done any only because well, i don't like that many things. If i would, my gallery would be full of it. And i do plan to. Fanart means you like a topic and you paint it. So where's the drama?

I've pressed that watch button some time ago and it stays pressed. If you start listening to what foul-mouths say, it will only hurt your artistic endeavors. If my favorite artists would decide to paint ponies all of a sudden then damn - those would be the best damn ponies ever painted haha.
_
Please just paint:
1. whatever you love painting
2. whatever makes you stronger as an artist and makes you learn something new.

Your viewers filter themselves. People that admire what you do and how you do it will stay here regardless of the themes you work on.

p.s. : here's a harsh truth about working in this industry:
You will Never please Everyone. Ever. Nor should you try to.

Hope this helps,
Cristian

I agree with the comments before mine (: you are an incredible artist and you have a gift that not only makes you happy but other people happy too and if you want to draw fanart, then like every other artist out there, you should be entitled to do so. I adore your drawing of Howl as it's a character I love and I like to see other people's representations of characters I care about. The person who sent you that message and unwatched you is not important, your happiness however is and you should never let one person stand it the way of what you want to do. ^_^

I love your fanart and your original art, and I think you should be able to draw whatever you feel like~ Your fanart is good because you add original style to it, and I love seeing my favorite characters drawn in different styles, but I also love seeing your ideas, so I think it's silly someone would stop watching you for that.

I love your art, And the fact that you are talented enough to do fanart but still stay true to your original style, is proof of great artistic talent... If people make you upset over it, point me in their direction and I'll smack them for you )8<

It's sad that you feel you have to apologize because you don't! Remember that making art is what makes you happy (my impression at least) and thus it shouldn't matter if you want to do fanart or original art. I think you can improve your skills no matter what you are making. And you shouldn't have to feel like you're letting anyone down either.. because in the end, what matters is if you have let yourself down! I know it's been said before but it seems that you need to hear it more; Do what you want to do! Not what you feel you should be doing! Otherwise you'll never make yourself happy ;__; Plus, it's obvious to me that your love for games and such led you to wanting to improve your skills! So go on and do what you want to do! I'll keep watching you regardless :) :hug:
