Well seeing as I don’t make fanart, only graphics/gifs and have thought about it, I don’t really care if people write fic based off my work. If it inspires and promotes creativity within the fandom then why should I be upset? You give back to fandom and it gives back to you.
I don’t always agree with this guy, but what he says, I firmly believe it applies to all forms of art including fanworks:
“All worthy work is open to interpretations the author did not intend. Art isn’t your pet — it’s your kid. It grows up and talks back to you.” —Joss Whendon
BUT not everyone has that mindset and you are right, I should have asked permissions first. I will keep that in mind for the future if I’m ever inspired by fanart again.
Also, you are not even the original artist of the image. I’d be more understanding of this message if you were.
Where do you get off coming to me and telling me this?

- eatingwillgraham said: And what about people making fanarts and using someone else’s art (the movies and the comic books) to promote their own drawings? I don’t think either of these things are denigrating the original. Just make it richer.
- waitingforwinter said: Seriously, what? Okay, like if the artist has an issue with it, whatever. So by this logic no one should write fanfic ever. Or make fanart. Ever. Because who the fuck has permission to do any of that?
