All art is fanart. Some is fanart of things, people and places drawn from our own experiences, but nothing is truly original. Everything we create draws from our own experience.

The deviantART community has zero interest in original art unless it's drawn extremely well.

I prefer original, but if there's a thumbnail of a fanart that seems interesting or it's by an artist that I like, then I'll probably click it. But... with fanart, you get PAIRINGS! So that's the really good upside ^^

I like fanarts of stuff i'm fan of. But still original characters/artwork doesn't get as much attention as fanart. I think it should.

I prefer original artwork over fan art. I don't mind looking at fan art as long as it's what the character would do and such. I do agree with what LilMs-Mutt says, though. c:

Depends, really. I think it's the quality of the artwork that I'm interested in, not the type of art it is. Original, fanart, I love viewing them all! :D

It depends how good the fanart is, if its really good then i dont mind, but when its bad it destroys my original image of the actual characters-.-
