Dear fanart producers: · 10:02pm
Lemme know when you draw something about my characters!
Even the most scrappiest of drawings that are off-centre on the characters is still something that a writer loves to receive. I look at fanart like I looked at Christmas as a kid.
As an adult, I can just go and buy whatever the hell I want. Oh look, a shiny new thing. I might want that for christmas! But no, I have money now, I can just buy it. Hooray.
But fanart? I can't draw worth a shit. I make squiggles that make a fifth-grader with a paintbrush look like Rembrant (I really hope he's a famours painter and not a famous musical composer...).
That being said, when I get fanart, I explode with excitement. Especially if it's really good! It's like christmas all over again! I get something that is out of my means to attain. And it says something else, too: It says that I touched you. I stroked your imagination. I made you get attached to the characters. Whatever. I affected you in some tiny, tiny way. And that's what (most) writers write for!
If you ever have a writer go 'meh' to you when you tell them you have fanart, say 'fuck you!' and walk away. They don't deserve your fanart.
That being said!
This person here drew Kuno and Warden! And did a good jobof it! And never told me
I mean look at this!
Is Kuno not adorable with her cute little fangs and evil expression?
Is Warden not dashing with his haggard expression and little bandaid thingie to show that he's had a really rough day? How could anyone not be excited to get fanart like this?!
So if you're an artist and drawing stuff about fanfics: let the writer know! They'll love you forever! And if they don't: Screw them!
P.S. Totes working on more affliction. I've got like 600 words done. Hopefully will finish up an entire chapter tomorrow and post it for you all to gawk at.
