The Truth About Selling Fanart
Update notice as of January 17, 2013: I have given this guide a MAJOR overhaul. It was originally written over a year and a half ago, and since then my own views and understanding of copyrights has changed. I felt that this guide should reflect those changes, so if you read this guide in the past, please take a moment to look through it again as I have added MANY new topics, information, and sources. Unlike my first draft, I have also changed my viewpoint to neutral throughout this writing.
Update notice as of July 17th, 2015: Check out DeviantArt's new article on art theft, fanart, copyrights, and other relevant topics!

Last week when I said that I wouldn't be doing con sketches of copyrighted characters, I had no idea that the news would get the coverage that it did.  But seeing as how I helped poke the hornet's nest--and having taken the time to read the opinions of readers and other artists--I feel like it would be helpful if I responded to help clarify what's been happening.
First off, I think that what happened regarding this issue highlighted the BEST of our industry.  I'm thrilled with the results, although I don't find Marvel's statement reassuring (more on that later).  When we learned that Marvel was pursuing the $17,000 from Friedrich, we came together as concerned professionals and fans and managed to affect the situation.  Even though we disagreed, at least we weighed out the options.  And we even came together to set up funding to help out Friedrich.  With the use of Twitter, blogging, and proper action from the media outlets, w

In the middle of serious work and upgrading hardware. So I haven't been up here at all! I'm still active on tumblr, since I can use my phone to upload there. Going through a lot of changes right now so hang tight. You'll see the results of them soon hopefully. 

In my downtime, I've been playing Animal Crossing Pocket Camp and New Leaf: Welcome Amiibo. Still need to catch up with Pokemon Ultra Moon. 

I'm ok and still going! :heart:

It has!!! OMGosh! Work! I've been working 5 days a week with little downtime. Also life has been giving me a lot of changes to deal with at once. But I once they pass, I'll be better for it. I hope life has been good to you since I've been off DA.
