"It's nobody's secret that fan-art tends to get more attention from people."
So I spent the last one year observing, took the a chance to gather data, and compiled this altogether. I thought it would be selfish to keep the result of my thoughts to myself.

Please be aware that the content of this flash file is somewhat more serious than it looks.
Please be aware as well that I didn't proof-read the presentation. So I assure that you will find lots of grammatical error and all sort of crap there.

That's deeper than I was expecting it to be. I'm pleasantly surprised.

I consider myself someone who comes for fanart, but stays, because I like the artist's style.

This whole presentation is mostly composed of my personal thoughts, anyway. But I'm glad you find it interesting.

Wow, this is quite a cool analysis.
Loved reading this and was impressed you did it!
Very interesting, though one should technically do more reasearch into it I believe… Or, should, what am I talking about, it'd just be interesting to see I guess, how this compares to a similar artist who doesn't do fan art, and control groups and all that, but that's just meee~ =w=
Great job either way!

Thank you, it was just something I did spontaneously! Glad it was interesting enough for you!

I know this feeling, it's a horrible feeling (that is, always wanting to draw fanart for more recognition)...
Noktowl Featured By Owner Jul 7, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yeah, but like it or not, recognition still matters, it makes you feel better about your work.

Very interesting! I suppose I've noticed some of this, but really amazing non-fandom deviations seem to get a lot of attention as well. Up until now my biggest fandom has been one that's relatively small and I think known for it's good art/ists though, so I would assume my view is a bit skewed.

Of course it also depends on how big their audience is. I know some famous people on the internet who can whip out 5 mins sketch and get more attention than polished works. In this case, their original audience is much larger than your fandom. :D

Wow, this was really in-depth. I like your personal opinion at the end of it, too. The puppy photograph is a really good analogy.

Bahaha I should've used "cats" instead. The internet loves cats.
Thanks anyway!
