deviation in storage by MPMG




You wear your conquests proudly, like battle scars
after plowing through her defenses and beating a hasty retreat,
the sweat and stench are medals emblazoned on a returning hero's jackets as he greets his adoring peers.
They're meant to be seen, an unspoken coolness.

You would have me treat my conquests as open wounds,
having snared my target like a sneaky enemy assassin,
the dishelved hair and smeared lipstick may well be from friendly fire, warning others to keep their distance for their own good.
They're meant to be regretted and swept under the rug.

I found this file today, which I hadn't worked on since 2012. It was created from a few blanks I made from art book images. Assuming I would never finish it, I spent about half an hour adding shading. (That's why the hair is very complex, and everything else not so much.) It had a cool background, but I no longer remember where I would have gotten the components to give credit and deleted it. Similarly, I'm not 100% sure where the pattern for Haruka came from. It looks like Setsuna's is from :iconredheadstock:'s lace brushes; Michiru's might be.

Wikipedia: Fan art or fanart is artwork that is based on a character, costume, item, or story that was created by someone other than the artist.

If you, as an "artist," create art that is based on any existing art, you are creating Fanart. It doesn't matter if you draw it in your own style or create your own characters. If it is not your original idea all together, you did not create it.

I understand the merit of developing ones own style; however, if your reason for drawing/painting/etc. is to honor a series or artist that you love, what is wrong with doing a reproduction? I find the increasing number of fan artists I see telling other fan artists that they need to develop their own style to be deeply offensive. By the definition of what you do, you are not creating anything; your argument has no ground to stand on.

(For the record, this has never happened to me. If it does, I fully intend to ignore it. When I want to make real art, I make real art; when I want to make fan art, I make fan art.)
