Yeah, I think it's dumb also. Especially, if the fanartists have no qualms about torrenting or streaming the content illegally.

Is that a common thing or just like one or two specific assholes? I don't follow many artists who regularly sell fanart merchandise, but it seems baffling to me that a fannish person would be angry that someone wants to draw fanart of their OCs.

Probably very common on tumblr, the land of hypocrites. They sell a lot of merch for characters they have no ownership over but are very defensive over their own OC's.

I remember there was a time when fanfics had to give a disclaimer that they did not own any of the characters to avoid getting in trouble, now everyone is turning a profit over characters they don't own.

I would say it probably exists but I don't see it very often. Most artists I know would be excited if someone drew their OC, I know I always love when people draw my OCs.

I do know one artist who is kind of weird who I could maybe see doing this, but I consider her a terrible person for several reasons and she's literally the only one I follow who I could see doing it.

I can kind of get it, but only in the instance of, say, a self-funded webcomic artist or something like that where the fans and merch come directly from the source and directly support the series. Like, if fans CAN directly commission or make requests of the artist and other people are selling fanwork of their characters to that audience and discouraging them from commissioning the original artist, I get it.

It's a little different from if someone who makes money off of fanwork gets a book deal then complains that people make fic of their officially published work, when no such direct commissioning of the author is available.

Yep. I hate these people also. They aren't artists, they are opportunist thieves

Agreed. Also people who make icons with other people's fanart and then ask to be credited for it themselves. Like wat?

(Anonymous) 2017-08-13 01:38 am (UTC)(link)
Most people ask to be credited for the icons so that people can find more icons of the character, dumbass.

(Anonymous) 2017-08-13 06:55 am (UTC)(link)
Is it no longer de rigueur to credit both, as in "icon by x, art by y"? That's how everyone I know used to do it back when I still paid attention to icons.

(Anonymous) 2017-08-13 07:54 am (UTC)(link)
That's how I still do it, yes. Never had any complaints about taking the art.
