Yeah, it can help get the creative juices flowing...But it's also fun to draw your favorite characters sometimes!

The same reason I draw anything; because it makes me happy to draw it.

I don't really fit into the poll--
I draw fanart because I like to take something that I enjoy and just express it through my art. I find it fun to make my own twists on things, and show how I'd depict a character or story that's caught my eye. I love my OCs, but sometimes it's just fun to take an established story or character and really immerse them into your art-- and immerse yourself into their world

I draw fanart if it's something I feel inspired to draw!

Case in point, nowadays all I want to do is draw SPG fanart. I regret nothing. 8D

it was mostly just for fun really at first cause I didn't know how to draw, so I went fanarting around. now that I feel like I gotten better... sort of, I want to practice more so i can play around originals someday but still would fan art just for fun most of the time C:

I don't really have any OCs (and if I do come up with any I quickly lose interest), and when I'm obsessed with a show/movie/pairing/whatever I just wanna draw that all the time. Hence why my gallery is 99% fanart.

I definitely do it to interact with people. I also get easily inspired by good TLK fanart. It's also fun to draw canons in your own style.

I don't usually draw fanart, but when I do it's because I can't draw anything else

I mostly ever draw fan art because I'm one of those people who gets stuck in those ruts of being able to only draw one thing.

Honestly I pretty much draw ANYTHING depending on how I'm feeling. But generally when i get back into art I somehow get addicted to doodling Pokemon specifically... My OC's are fun, but I only seem to be interested in things that have a well put backstory-- if that's even a good way to explain that.

I mostly just draw my own OCs, but I draw fanart sometimes. Sometimes, it's just because I love that fandom, other times it's because I'm in a art block and trying to get out of it.
