FanArts vs. OriginalArts?
What a tricky subject this is. From
copyright and its laws, until the moment we have all seen the
little fingers up or the hearts or subscribers of more for the fans, is a
very complicated issue and that many have not asked.
First, what is one and what is the other?:"Fanart
and fanfiction are terms that refer to art and narrative created for
fans of movies, characters, video games, animation and literary works,
they are a way of paying tribute to works of preference, not lucrative"
for those who like Wikipedia: Fan Art or fan art is a concept that can
be used in English for works of art, mainly visuals, which are based on
characters, eras, costumes or others that the artist takes from
previously created universes by a third party
art would be an opposite term, something of its own, not based on
third-party creations or previous works made by another artist.
So what happens?artists,
movies, series, among other things and creations have a degree of
popularity, some more than others, what makes an illustration about this more recognized, because people have an idea of the product
that is presented to them. What
compared to an OriginalArt, which may have a better history, a better
context, even a totally innovative approach is confined to other good
ideas, so it is not as well known or popular.
So, then, the person that make a fanArt, other they cheer and follow (it's always more viral). And we end up in situations like this (as LoulouVZ in DevianArt say):
This becomes a challenge for the illustrated artists, artists or new ideas. But it is not a question to be discouraged. At some point that which is so popular, so exalted, started from below;What remains to be done? to
all others who publish originalArt, learn, improve, to accept the
criticisms (good, bad, or rather to improve) and keep doing
originalArts, despite everything.
That is, is the FanArt bad?It depends, on the artists and illustrators that I know what they really did it FanArt, just like little kids from school. I love that serious, I love those little dolls, I love those caricatures ... and that love, I ended up wanting to draw them and listen to their creator. Sure, that's how we learned and improved it. But you always You have to make a space for all of the original creations, which I sometimes see that a small child does, and many dismiss them as being rare or unusual. Why? Let's give them an opportunity.
Let's give the originals a chance. Art, maybe, we get caught more than we think and we still do not know. Practice with the fanArt, follow them (there is a good name in social networks) but always create your style and give chance to the original designs. And if you do both or just one of the two, think a bit about this reflection.
