It kinda bothers me that there's no in-between option here, honestly. As, I've been some fans with some amazing art, and I've seen some fans who well, still need a little work on things, but that's not a bad thing honestly. Though the second option confuses me, as I honestly don't think intelligence has anything to do with capability to draw.
Though uh, wait. We -are- talking about the fandom itself right? Or is there something else you're talking about here?
