As an art student, I have most recently developed my work around an interest I have in media fan culture or "fandom". I like to look into the communities that form around various films, TV shows, animations, comics, etc. and the productivity that emerges from that. I look into fandom while adopting the role of both an observer and a member of the community. Because of this, I also have come to appreciate how my own fan works are just as relevant a part of my portfolio as any other "more original" works.

I believe fanart is a type of art that exists based on participation, rather than technical skill - I don't think there is necessarily such thing as "bad" fanart.

I'm pretty convinced that no one actually reads my journal but I figured it's worth a shot to see if I can get some more eyes this way.

Y'see, I've actually started up my own YouTube channel just over a month ago. It's called The Fanalysis Channel, where I intend to mostly make reviews and editorials on things that mostly concern fandoms and any fan-made content. There are only two videos up at the moment but they give a pretty good idea of what I'm trying to go from here.

By all means, feel free to click on the link below:…

Finally, if decide you whether you like or dislike any of my videos, I would appreciate it if you could share your thoughts in the comments below the videos. It's kinda hard for me to try and improve anything if I don't know what people find wrong about my work...

I share your interest in fan art. I think that we watch and view so many images from media, TV, youtube, etc.  That those images have become hubs that "we" can relate to.Drawing or painting a picture of something you are a fan of is like drawing or painting of a beautiful sunset landscape whatever person.  And participation at whatever level is part of the art pieces.  You said it every well in your statement. 
Thanks for joining fanartistforever
