I'm a fan artist myself, but I'm not one of these. I deal with them all the time and they are indeed irritating. My fan art intentionally has my own version of the official character style and I always redesign a character in my own way (it is "deviant", after all). But there is always one of more fan piranhas who will then come and tell me something about the physical appearance of my fan art is "wrong" or "inaccurate", even though it was my intention to do it differently. 

It might be for this reason that most fan artists (unfortunately) try to replicate the exact style and portrayal of the characters they are fans of. Unless the character(s) are doing something interesting in the art, I find this incredibly boring and repetitive.

They don't realize that "fan art" means a fan's own representation of something they like, not a replication of it. 


I appreciate this! You are a very good observer of the community here! Nod

Haha, yes, this is so true. I am a huge fan of many different things, and I have seen this first-hand. Especially with Harry Potter or Phantom.

Absolutely great! *L* I like the "scientific" name of this breed. ;) Though of course, there are many sub species.

*loves this so much* Every time I find a fandom, I turn around and find it descending into popularity. (I read and adored the first Harry Potter book when it was originally published, and two books later I was lost under a sea of enthusiastic eight-year-olds and Bible-thumping angry parents....) I can't decide if I'm a trendsetter or an albatross.

Gotta love it. My other big one, besides +Fav Bomber, and I'm not afraid to admit it, though the squabbling usually doesn't happen with me...just rampant fanarty commenting and favoriting.

I was very recently one of the Backyard Trees (or possibly a Hmmmicorn) and then a horde of Fan Pirahnas and Wow Birds swarmed my page... Yes, this describes them perfectly. Fan Pirahnas, lol, I'd never have thought of it!

I quite enjoyed this dA Bestiary of yours. It made me giggle incessantly and your artwork brings to mind fond memories of joke cards and MAD magazine. ^_^

I regret not having seen this one sooner.

Fan Piranahs scare me inmensely, and the most I've seen is fof their freshwatered LiveJournalian subspecies. Ironically, I've yet to get bitten too hard by any.

Quite the opposite, really: long ago, I had the brilliant idea one night of tossing a bleeding carcass into the DeviantArt ocean in the form of a Renamon/Mewtwo pairing pic (Digimon/Pokemon coupling, yes). Maaaan, it's like they could smell it from a hundred miles away! This was maybe two years ago (and the original sketch was even older) and still the fishies continue to feed on it, more than any of my non-fan art combined (much to my chargin).

Apropos nothing, I'm a FMA *manga* fan. Yes, there is a difference between that and an anime fan. A big one. But I'll leave it at that since really, crazy fans are crazy :P

Yay for fishies that can feast on your carcass in under a minute (and or just nibble cutely on a piece of fruit! Not all pirahnas are that violent, after al!)

would cause such a huge gathering of these things that casualties could include not only huge amounts of all sides, but also the deviant who posted it?

LoL Nicely done indeed. I was browsing your stuff after seeing you'd made a Daily Deviation and found this to be the best to comment on *swarms* lol- and I've drawn 'fanart' before so I know this term quite well. I can usually tell you if it will cause a swarm or not before I post it-it's really funny.

I take pride in being able to mix two fandoms in one picture and do it right. Not one pirhana fight yet, even when I mix such things as, say, Sailor Moon and Harry Potter! Actually, that one is the most popular image in my gallery...

(I count seven successes so far!)
