I..... I ...um? Confused Mir by admflo  I'm... trying to find the logic here, but...eeeh? wuuuuut?
why would you draw fanart of something you don't like in the first place,  BTS by CutielovelySJ777 I'm so confused? 
....isn't it better to just draw what you you mind wants to/heart feels  like????? <3

I'll try to explain:
The things I am fan of usually don't have characters I want to draw.
But sometimes I see a character from something I'm not a fan of (didn't watch/read/play/not interested)and I love their design so much that I want to draw them but can't since I'm not a fan of the thing??
Do you understand my problem xD

yes, now I do totally get youuu....and yet I don't...on the part off= 

Whats stopping you? Last I checked, there were no rule on what to draw or not. I'd say if you really wanna draw something that you're not fan of , then do it for the sake of Fun/experimenting/practice/or whatever <3 , go for it, it's just as good reason as any other, aaaand if fan have problem with that, then they shouldn't complain, I mean they get free fanart, for god sake!!

btw, what character/fan art where you considering? -curious-

Good question.
I don't think I should do a fanart if I'm not an actual fan of what I'm drawing/I just like the design. I feel like it's not honest :c
You know, I just don't think I could do it. Even tho I want to :/

Nothing in particular since I always dump the ideas immediately xD

awww~the that a very sweet and interesting way of thinking!
I never though about it like that, but then again, I'v don't think I have had the urge to draw something I don't fan of LOL!! 
still~ I totally get/under stand you more now (in both cases of wanting and not want <3333 )) thanks for explaining.

psss. I bet you would still be able to draw it, what ever it was + XD wuuut, that sounded funny, why you dump your ideas so quickly then?? lack of time? motivation? experience?

I dunno if that's good tho xD sometimes I'm stuck with these sort of stands and can't get away from it :'D
The problem is that I decide on what to draw only from an aesthetic viewpoint? xD I have to really like the looks or design and it's less about the character itself.... but then again, it's very very rare that I like a design + the character + am able to draw it in my style sooooooooooooooooo
rare fanart will for ever be rare I guess

I dump my ideas on a regular basis xD like: *image pops up in my head* noooope way out of my skill level/too detailed/i'd rather not/I can't post this/it's too hard/I'm lazy ahahaha *reasons I'll never become a professional artist* oh I forgot the most important reason: I forget most ideas immediately

aaah! So that's the reason why I rarely see fan art form you????

well, I do get you, specially the "dunno if I mange to draw it" but then I'll be annoying and say~ you won't know until you try <3
also it's great learning experience to do stuffs you never did/or drawn before (in general). btw,your style is so nice and pretty + it's nice for fanart too :manhug: -just wanted to let you know -cough- <3

Same goes for ideas, tho you sound so cute that you bot forget and abandon them X"DDD
makes me hint of sad, as I bet some of the abandoned ideas are great, I mean I know as I do have those and just like you said, one's like nope, I wish I could or nope~not enough time/or skills..etc, jeeez it sucks, as I myself have lot of ideas + sketches I never finish/or do.....its an artist curse, maaaybe, who knows XD pfff~hahaha..

Yep, that's the reason(s) xD

there's another thing I remembered why fanarts are hard for me. I tend to try to copy the style of the thing so in the end it doesn't look 100% like my usual stuff anyway.

Whaaat cuuute?? xD I'm forgetful as HELL, my mind is like a sieve xD I forget everything

That feel. XD
I usually just end up doing 'fanart' of my fav artists characters at that point.
