Do you own the character in question?
So... Fan Art and copyright law--not as complicated as folks want to make you think. If you make Fan Art and sell it, you CAN be sued because you ARE creating and selling work illegally. Just because you don't hear about it much doesn't mean it doesn't happen.
I've given up telling deviants that their work is illegal because no one cares what another deviant really has to say about it... but this is my little corner of dA and my own rant. I sincerely hope that more folks agree with me on this, but I fear that I am in the great minority.
I've been dreaming up and creating art ever since I can remember. Admittedly, there have been large swaths of time where my focus simply wasn't on the creative process, but life does have a habit of spinning things around. Right now, I'm very happily making my art my focus and priority. I have wonderful support and I'm very excited to be (finally) joining deviantART since I've eyed it on and off for a number of years.|
I've tried digital media and somehow the process just feels very disconnected to me. I adore seeing other's digital work, but it's not a medium that I prefer to work in. I'd much rather have my pencil to the paper and work like that. I love colored pencils and the richness they can evoke and I love straight graphite, as well.
Drawing is my strong suit while I would consider painting to be one of my weaker mediums. I recently acquired some oil paints to try my hand at them, though. Mostly, I love exploring and trying new things--whether it's a new medium, subject matter, or even style.
