How to make a fan art?

It's not as simple as it seems at first glance. To do this, you need to be a fan of the original work and have at least some artistic skills. We must also take into account the fact that many artists have a tremendous experience in drawing, so if it did not work out for the first time, do not despair. By itself, fan art is painted by anything (depending on the style of the original work), but if it is done by hand, it is often processed on a computer using various programs (for example, Photoshop). You can paint a picture with a simple pencil, felt-tip pens, paint with gouache, but in such a way that it is clear what is depicted, and if there is a skill - computer processing. And if you have the necessary knowledge and capabilities, you can draw directly on the computer. But before proceeding to the art itself, it is better to find out about certain canons of the structure of figures that are used in manga, games and some films.

Differences fan-art from fan-fikshena

It's worth mentioning that the fan art does not includeself-developed conjectures and their descriptions, while in fan-fixhen, this is the basis. Fan art in the first place includes an illustration that can parody the work, include a mixture of several characters from different universes or just carry a caricature character. A fan-fikshen includes the ability to independently refine the ideas of the authors of the original, have an offshoot of the plot with the same characters in the mood fan. For example, the most common phenomenon in "fanfic" is a short film with a duration of five minutes to an hour. This film can include both an offshoot of the main plot, not included in the original film, and the author's own fiction. Also, "fanfic" can be removed based on a literary work or comics. Fan-fikshen can even be written in the form of a small work or even a book, simply based on the original plot of the work.
