Manga/Anime Gallery Suggestion: Fanart Subcategory by Nyiana-sama Manga/Anime Gallery Suggestion: Fanart Subcategory by Nyiana-sama

Manga/Anime Gallery Suggestion: Fanart Subcategory



What is it?

A way to help reduce the number of miscatgorized deviations in the Manga/Anime gallery. A lot of fanart is submitted into the M/A gallery under the assumption that is where it belongs. Any drawings of a copyrighted character, or any drawings of copyrighted creations or universes belong in the fanart gallery.

Where will the drawings end up if fanart is selected?

The proposed change would place them in the Fanart > Manga & Anime > Miscellaneous gallery. This would be in order to keep the submission process as simple as possible, and would not need to create multiple new gallery branches.

Does this apply to Anime/Manga > Digital Art as well?

Yes. It would be the same situation for the digital art, only the fanart pictures would go to the Fanart > Manga & Anime > Digital Art > Miscellaneous gallery.

I like this idea, but how would I support it?

One way to support this proposed idea would be to favorite it, and to help spread the word about it. Another way would be to leave a comment here suggesting that this change, or one similar to it be made. Leaving a comment in that thread is the best way to go about having a change made.

do actually OCs made by friends also belong to the fanart gallery?
i think only drawings of copyrighted characters by professional mangaka or characters of anime, manga, games, etc. are real fanarts...

Technically yes, but just about no one ever does it. Drawing a fanart of a character means that you're drawing a character that isn't your own. So they are "technically" supposed to go there, but just about none of them do.

ah, i see!^^
but this would be too complicated cause many user still put their sailor moon fanarts (as an example) into the manga/anime gallery.

Yes, that's why I proposed this idea, it would help ease the amount of fanart that gets into manga/anime, I've also been trying to get the gallery descriptions updated, they're old, out of date, and too vague. :la: Maybe one day changes will happen.
