Fan Art Law
Mon Sep 10, 2012 by $techgnotic
t seems there’s nothing quite as dear to the hearts of many of our deviants as their production of fan art, and at the same time, there is nothing so knotted with legal and ethical headaches. Imitation may be the sincerest form of flattery, but in the form of fan art it has also become one of the most frustratingly complicated. At some point, the sheer volume of fan art around a single property may become so large that the issue rises to another level of scrutiny by the creators of the original work.
With this dynamic in mind, we thought the following panel that Josh Wattles, our Advisor In Chief here at deviantART, and a mystery guest named Harold Smith, gave at Comic Con this year might be of immense help in understanding the ever evolving elements of fan art

“I was a child who loved to draw and drew something as soon as I found a blank on a paper, but I was away from drawing until I fell in love with FMA. It has been about 7 years and a half since I began to draw FMA fan art. First, I bought a tablet and started to draw FMA characters only on my computer. It was hard to get used to the touch of a tablet.
The catalyst that I knew FMA was the first anime series. If it seriously becomes my favorite, I can't stop reading the original, so I bought the manga soon and gave oneself up to the manga wholeheartedly, and the situation continues up to today.”
These are several pieces of *amber1003’s artwork to be showcased for the month of August! Make sure to check out her Gallery. :s
|Welcome to my page. |
Thank you for a lot of comments and favs. I'm so happy if you like my works.
Well, there is some things I ask of you...
I'm not interested and weak in the whole pairings, fan fiction and cosplay, so please don't talk about them to me in the comments and whatnot. That's why I hardly visit other deviants to avoid seeing those works, then I don't have any favs...I would appreciate it if you could understand me.
I don't permit redistribution, rework, reprint and download about all images. But you don't need to ask me if it's for personal use in closed-door situation like a wallpaper.
I ask for your kind understanding.
