minor edit: changed it to scraps to my gallery stats only apply to actual pictures lol. More stamps by me can be found in my scraps (use the search if it's easier
Big Edit: considering this has well over 2000 faves now, I wanted to make it look nicer. The old version had Comic Sans for a font for crying out loud XD
Hope this looks more presentable now ^_^
(as was the original, even though I mangled it before)
-Original description (plus edits) from November 25th 2007-
Sorry, but I had to have my say.
There's far too much fanart hating here lately. Whilst I agree with not drawing fanart purely for pageviews and popularity and so on, I don't like it when most people bundle all fanartists together.
There are those of us who draw fanart for pure enjoyment. Sure, our galleries may end up packed with characters that aren't ours, but the work put into each picture can be akin to various original works.
I do original art, but most people don't see it because I don't like the thought of it possibly getting stolen. But I enjoy working on fanart just as much, and so I show artwork I have fun making, in the hopes that others will enjoy looking at it.
I'm a true fanartist; I draw fanart for fun.
And I'm proud of it.
(stamp is simple so it can be used by any fanartist.)
I love seeing what everyone else thinks about why they like fanart!
