Fanartist Stamp by Feniiku Fanartist Stamp by Feniiku
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 ^_^

Made with (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!

Aw, yeah! I'm the kind of girl that draws what comes into her mind as soon as possible, and I watch cartoons all the freakin' time. Guess what the by-product is? :)

I agree. :nod: I draw pics for entertainment, not to get everyone's attention. Thanks for making this stamp.

Same reason's I write fanfictions :) I draw too but I don't draw or write fanfiction's/fanart to gang popularity, to get more page views etc that stuff I could care less about. I love writing and drawing, because they relax me and are a fun hobby ^^ However: I'm a writer, but I do want to be an author to make a living off of my books...that's okay right? Does that make me an attention seeker? ^^; I'll still have fun writing of course :)

I agree with this completely. The shows I do fanart and fanfiction for aren't even that popular, so it's kind of hard for me to gt pageviews for it.

I have been fortunate enough to never be accused of drawing fanart just for pageviews, but I've heard of it happening.

I honestly love drawing fanart, and if someone wants to accuse me of just drawing it for popularity, then they apparently are not paying attention. ^.^
