so this weeks prompts included one regarding fanart and how characters are represented in itand while i thought it was an awesome idea to go through the fangirl tag in search of some amazing fanart (gingerhaze, i’m looking at you you amazing, talented woman) i thought that maybe i would reflect a little on what fanart is and why it is even made in the first placewhen you have engrossed yourself in a series, regardless of if you have visual aid/representation, it is always easy to find characters you love (or hate) it is this love that inspires a plethora of representations that pay homage to the series in question
fanart, much like fanfiction, is an easy (and almost therapeutic) way to feel that added connection to the characters; to have them do, wear or be in whatever situation the artist wants. it allows the artist to represent the characters they love (or hate) in whatever way they wish, to create their own head-canons.so why do people even create fanart?to pay tribute to the authors (and, to a further extent, characters) that mean something to themto inspire themselves to create new thingsto feel a sense of connection by creating something of their own from something that isn’t theirssome people are criticized for making fanart, for not being “original” enough to create their own characters. others are ignored because they only create “original” art and do not delve into the world of fandombut isn’t every form of art technically fanart for something that is bigger and better known?

when you have engrossed yourself in a series, regardless of if you have visual aid/representation, it is always easy to find characters you love (or hate) it is this love that inspires a plethora of representations that pay homage to the series in question

fanart, much like fanfiction, is an easy (and almost therapeutic) way to feel that added connection to the characters; to have them do, wear or be in whatever situation the artist wants. it allows the artist to represent the characters they love (or hate) in whatever way they wish, to create their own head-canons.

so why do people even create fanart?
to pay tribute to the authors (and, to a further extent, characters) that mean something to them
to inspire themselves to create new things
to feel a sense of connection by creating something of their own from something that isn’t theirs

some people are criticized for making fanart, for not being “original” enough to create their own characters. others are ignored because they only create “original” art and do not delve into the world of fandom

but isn’t every form of art technically fanart for something that is bigger and better known?

"In my head, I’m all hands.""I want to live in your head."

I think this is all the Levi/Cath (almost) smut I can bring myself to draw. Make-outs exist better in my head because drawing body proportions isn’t an issue there. And this looks like nothing how I imagine Levi gosh never again guys never again

The other three drawings I made for Rainbow! I thought I was only drawing one for each of her novels…until I remembered Simon and Baz were not actually a novel in itself. (Levi’s Pumpkin Mocha Breve recipe is courtesy of twitter user @keepthemuse.)

"Tell me again."
"What?"
"Why you called."
Georgie squeezed the phone. “To make sure you’re okay. To tell you that I love you.”
"I love you, too. Never doubt it."
A tear slipped over the bridge of her nose, into the eye below. “I never do,” she said. “Never.”

I finished Landline in a day, and then completely re-read it in three hours. It’s so wonderful, and I can’t even explain my intense emotions for it without losing breath.

Completed Landline bookmark! (small details = terrible photo)
Hm, okay… so this one is a little odd-looking compared to the others. In my head the correlation between Alice falling down the rabbit hole and Georgie’s journey in Landline makes complete sense, but I can’t put it into words— it was just a feeling I had. I think I just subconsciously wanted an excuse to do an Alice-themed picture.. I was a little but meh about them when they were first printed but cutting them in an irregular shape helped a lot. 
You can’t really see them in the picture, so you can check out the drawing details here! 
As of now this also means that I am completely caught up with drawing bookmarks for Rainbow’s books! I’m still undecided about whether I’ll make one for her story in My True Love Gave to Me when it comes out, or just keep this personal project within her main novels…
I hope you like it, Rainbow! Even though it’s sort of weird! =D

Details from my Landline bookmark. 
I feel really dumb because the printed height is 6 inches, so everything becomes SUPER tiny and I keep forgetting that most of the details will get lost in the actual thing. ;A;
The tests I printed out are a little underwhelming (for me), but maybe I’ll feel differently when they’re cut and laminated??

WIP
Finished reading this the other day! This idea for the cover just randomly popped into my head a few minutes ago and I just have to immediately sketch it out before I forget. I still don’t have time to detail everything so all I can share for now is this very rough draft.
